We stayed Friday & Saturday night and received a lovely welcome from Beryl who owns the B & B. It was warm, spotlessly clean, very large & comfortable bed, and we didn't want for anything. Lovely breakfast, and Beryl was very helpful with what to see and do in Chester. Would definitely go back.

Roland house is easy to find and very convenient for the city centre. We were able to park our car easily at the property and it is only a short walk into the city and to access the city walls too. The house and room was spotlessly clean and warm and comfortable. The furniture and furnishings are all good quality.... More

The location was good for walking into the center, the rooms were comfortable and clean, and it was a nice house. The hostess, however, took an almost immediate disliking to me. She had put two single beds together to make a double bed and saw that two men were to sleep in it. She offered to separate them, but we... More
