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.

We stayed at Rowland House for four days in May and it was a wonderful experience. The whole atmosphere was very welcoming and Beryl was really helpful through our whole stay.

Large ensuite room with every amenity we could have wanted. Good breakfast, which Beryl served early at our request (before 8am on a Sunday). Very welcoming, and valuable local knowledge for my first time staying in Chester. Highly recommended.

We wanted to visit our son who is studying at Chester University, so decided to stay as near as possible. We booked just one night, and wished we could have stayed longer. Our room was spacious, lovely and warm and with many little extras. The breakfast was scrumptious, I only wish it had been a little later than between 8-... More

We felt that the Rowland House had enough features to justify an Excellent rating. The bedroom was relatively large and the bathroom was easily the largest among the B&B's where we stayed for two weeks in the UK. The room was quiet, the bed was comfortable, and the WiFi worked fine. The proprietor, Beryl, was very forthcoming with advice on... More
