WiFi is free and AV equipment is available on request. You can take advantage of catering options for a productive working lunch. Just 10 minutes from the hotel, you can Walk the Walls in Chester and follow paths of long-gone Roman soldiers on patrol. Up for some sailing? Try a cruise on the River Dee through Grosvenor Estate . You can practice your swing and putt at Chester Golf Club or indulge in some retail therapy at the over 60 stores in Grosvenor Shopping Centre . Both are just a 10-minute walk from the hotel. Start your day strong with an Express Start Breakfast buffet included in your room rate. Dine inside at the comfortable, high-back booths and cosy tables or on the outdoor patio with views of the racecourse. Discounts at two racecourse restaurants let you tuck into tasty dishes with a bit of change to spare for a bet or two. And after all that feasting, head over to the fitness centre next door for a rejuvenating workout at a low daily rate.
