Very basic B&B with no frills. Tight parking if you could even get in the lot. Could not get ice and no lounge type room to have a drink in - just the breakfast room The price was the same as it was for much nicer B&B's.

We've stayed in loads of hotels and guest houses over the past few years so kind of know what to expect. I don't like to say bad things (especially about a guest house) but we paid £80- for 1 night. The bed was really comfortable and the breakfast was delicious with a good selection and friendly service but sadly that's... More

A lovely old Victorian house approximately 10 minute walk to town. We had a room for four with plenty of space and bath. The breakfast was good and met some great people at the meal. Parking is very tight. Actually only room for two cars in the front of the house. There is parking on the side of the road... More

Well located and excellent value for money. Extremely friendly and helpful hosts who added value to my experience in Chester and area. A lovely old Victorian character home with good amenities. A very enjoyable 5 days stay while viewing The Open. Very good value for money.

Bowman Lodge is located between the A56 and Chester city centre, on a road with a lot of BnB. It is a very nice place, my only two comments are that the parking is tiny (but cars can be left on the side of the road) and I have had some trouble getting the shower to work (you need to... More

This place is an absolute gem. Before I left home I rang to say I would be late checking in - the very polite owners ensured me this wasn't a problem and they kindly left a key out for me. On arrival the place felt very homely and cosy. Although not modern decor it was totally functional and didn't affect... More

Ten minute walk from the railway station, Bowman Lodge is located on a busy main road in a pleasant residential area. My room was clean and functional. The bathroom was for my use only but it was across a hallway. The proprietor was friendly and breakfast was available if required. Bowman Lodge is a good value B&B.

This is the second time my wife and I have visited Bowman Lodge and this time our room was bigger than the room we had last time and we were even more impressed. When we arrived we were greeted at the door by Mike the owner who showed us to our room even though we were rather early. As the... More

This was a brilliant find. Very reasonable rates. Both owners were very friendly and helpful. Short walk into town. Information on restaurants and taxis made available in rooms. Rooms were really nice. Comfortable bed and lovely shower. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you. Simon & Rachel
