Visited in December on a cold, wet couple of days. Very quaint and comfortable. Close to the city centre with all its attractions, history, restraunts, shops etc. a good base for touring the area as very accessible by car. I can't add anything to the previous reviews which has'nt already been said. Excellent.

The hotel is situated on the City Wall and is a only a 10 minute walk into the centre of Chester and with free... More

This is an old classic building, originally from the late 1700's and its new owners, Adrian and Fiona have done an awesome job in continuing to maintain its authenticity. In writing a review of a wonderful ancient building like this, you have to have a completely different attitude than reviewing the 'straight lined modern hotel'. I found the service impeccable,...

Ideal location for a break in Chester, situated on the city walls, overlooking the River Dee. Friendly hosts, comfortable clean rooms, free easy access WIFI and a lovely home cooked breakfast. The car parking was definitely a bonus and made for a stress free break!

Stayed October 24th Friday to Monday. Great place to stay, fantastic location right in the centre of Chester, free parking, but quiet at night! Best breakfast you could have, freshly cooked. Owners couldn't be more helpful. The room we stayed in had plenty of space,but did have a bed that was a little too firm for us. Would definitely return.

Stayed for just one night in one of the twin rooms not over-looking the river. Beautiful room, nicely decorated with lovely soft linen and cosy beds. The breakfast was delicious -even the black and white pudding! Very attentive and friendly staff. It was like staying with a friend of the family. Perfect location for exploring Chester.

Just returned from a two night stay at The Recorder House. We were given a very warm welcome, a guided tour of the facilities, and taken to our room. The room was stunning, four poster bed, antique furniture, creaking floors and a lovely view of the River Dee and the weir. The whole house was like being on the set... More

We've just returned from a 2 night stay at the Recorder House for a perfect weekend away in Chester. This is a lovely romantic hotel and beautifully kept by the owners Fiona and Adrian who made our stay wonderful with a warm welcome. The room was really warm and friendly, Victorian double bed with incredibly soft bedding and pillows, it... More
