Spent one night at Rowland House during our journey to England, much appreciated it. Beryl made us feel comfortable even if we arrived earlier than expected. B&B is located just few minutes walk from the city centre. Our room made us feel like at home, we slept so well that missed the morning clock.

I booked Rowland house as we were going to Chester races. Well Beryl is so welcoming and has excellent knowledge of Chester and restaurants which she happily shared. The B & B is spotlessly clean and the bedrooms spacious. The shower was spacious and the bed so comfortable. The attention to detail was faultless. As the weather was glorious we... More

Rowland House is beautiful and Beryl has obviously put a great deal of thought into anticipating the traveler's every need. Our room was elegant and had the best shower we've ever seen (we were so impressed that we took a picture!).
