My wife and I stayed for two nights, whilst visiting for the weekend and Chester races. Beryl is very accommodating and helpful with enquiries about the area or specific local information. The B&B is well situated and easy to find by car, with parking directly outside. The breakfast is wholesome and special requests are catered for. We stayed in the... More

A great place to stay in Chester. Was really well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. Well located near the centre of Chester with parking as well. I'd happily stay again if I'm in Chester. Thanks Beryl.

I recently finished an eleven night stay with Beryl. She is a wonderful, kind and generous hostess who goes far beyond the usual service you can expect even from a good B&B. She is also very knowledgeable about restaurants, events and attractions in a wide circle around Chester. The rooms are beautifully appointed, very comfortable and kept to a high... More

Stayed here for two nights and loved it. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. The shower is huge and everything is so well thought out. Beryl is lovely. She is friendly and knowledgeable and she cooks a mean breakfast ! . Would love to return soon.
