Latest Chester Racecourse parking reviews
Very easy to find using the post code with SatNav. Always parking spaces available during our stay at the hotel - despite the need to use the car and later return one day when visiting the Zoo.Paul
Fabulous stay all round, parking was easy, choice of spaces, in all ExcellentCathryn
Brilliant easy to find and great location.Steve
Well pleased with the price for four days/nights parking at Queens hotel car park. Had reservations when I was told to park in any space as opposed to a precooked space but there were plenty of spaces available. Picked car up before the 11 ‘0’ clock deadline and away. Can recommend it on my experience.William
Whilst we got a space ok, I can imagine, it being difficult, there are only about 20 spaces and the car park is very tight, so may not be suitable for larger cars. Felt that ot was fairly secure and the spaces are bigger than supermarket carpal spaces.Robert
Very easy to book and find. Thank youJane
Although the car park is in an area behind the Queen Hotel, I’m not sure it is owned or operated by them. This could be made clearer as it is not signed as the Queen Hotel car park. But based on others people’s comments and the two photos it was easy to find. It’s about a 5 minute walk at most to the station. Cost us £30 for 4 full days. Overall happy with my experience and would use again.Mark
Very pleased with using this particular company. The Crown Hotel parking space was very easy to find, as one only had to follow the signs to the station, where parking was adjacent to the station. My fears of would there be a parking space available, were soon dismissed as there were quite a few that were free. I certainly would use this company again.John
Hassle free and no real issues but really could do with clearer signs for the Queens parking zone as it's next door to another car park. I would use this space again.
Easy to find, lots of room and within walking distance to the town centre. I have parked a few times here now and never had any issues. Great!Elena
