Latest Chester Racecourse parking reviews
Brilliant idea. Easy to book a space. Would highly recommendLynn D
Fantastic car park for a weekend awayLaura
Hotel was lovely. Friendly and very helpful staff Location fantastic Parking was easy and reliableTracey
When I first booked and looked at the photos of the parking and reading the reviews it looked and sounded a little confusing but once arrived there it is straight forward and very easy . There is two entrances one at the front of the Queen hotel where you drive through the old horse and carriage arch way and one at the rear of the hotel both are accessible 24hours . I arrived mid week and stayed for two nights and there was always plenty of spaces but this could change weekly and could depend on the time of year as this car park is also used for train travellers as it approx 3mins walk from the station . The car park is covered by cameras and the parking spaces seem fairly wide . Walking into the city centre takes approx 15mins as you have to cross a couple of main roads . If you turn up on the day and pay you will find that you will pay more than booking in advance approx £2.50 every 24hours . There are other 24hours parking sites down the road but not sure how secure they are and also there are slightly further away from the hotel , train station and the city centre but the price is approx £6.50 for 24hours . If you stay at the hotel when you check in just mention that you have parked in the car park and then either say you have paid in advance which they will know or register your car with the front desk and then pay on check out. Over all a very easy experience giving you the easy access to the city , train station , hotels and the sense of security . Would highly recommend this so a five star ratingMichael
Fantastic car park a few steps up to reception, easy to find...recommended.John
Easy to find the car park and the space, relatively secure. No fuss booking and parking. I would use again.Ruth
Needs the postcode to link to the car park and clearer signage. The postcode tried to take me to a different road and to the back of the car park where there was no access and then I drove past the entrance because the sign said market car park and the larger linen hall car park sign was surrounded by leaves. Due to all the roadworks and road closures and not having a clue where I was this was pretty stressful!!! Nevertheless we got there in the end and Chester was amazing. Shame we couldn’t stay longer!Miriam
Great hassle free parking will defiantly be using this service again.Murray
Not directed very wellHeather
