If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Chester look no further. The historic building is ideally placed for exploring the city and is actually on the city walls facing the river. Because it is an old and a listed building the rooms are quirky and although not large, our room was perfectly adequate and comfortable for a short... More

Lovely quirky building with quaint and interesting rooms. We had a stunning view of the river and weir and lovely period features. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Our TV didn't work and the wifi was very slow - but we didn't report either as we were quite comfortable without. Breakfast was good and tasty. Would happily visit again.

We were delighted we chose The Recorder House to stay in for our 3 night stay in Chester. We received a warm welcome from Fiona and Adrian, who were most helpful hosts at all times during our stay. This B & B is perfectly located for a visit to Chester - right on top of the City walls overlooking the... More

We stayed for two nights at Recorder House. It is actually on the city walls, which is just incredible and the building has a really interesting history. The location is superb - 5-10 minutes to the main shopping strip and cathedral etc, and 2 mins down the road from a number of really good pubs, fish and chips, Italian, Indian... More

We spent two nights recently at Recorder House in the Virgo room. The room was large with a wonderful view of the river . The usual amenities were provided plus a few nice touches such as cold bottled water which was kept in a small fridge outside the room as was fresh milk. Small packs containing cotton pad and bud...

We stayed at the Recorder House for 2 nights. We had a river view room on the first floor with a comfy four poster bed. Others have commented that the rooms were small, but ours was quite spacious with room for a sofa. There were many thoughtful touches from our friendly hosts, Adrian and Fiona, such as a fridge with... More

We spent two nights in the Recorder House at Chester, which is ideally located on a lovely river, along the city walls, with easy walking access to the central shopping/restaurant/pub areas of the city, which is very beautiful with lots of history. Fiona was a lovely hostess and her husband was a great cook! We had a nice room up... More

You could not ask for more than the Recorder House when visiting Chester. The guesthouse itself is in a historically significant building right on the city's ancient wall and overlooking the river. The interior of the house retains the historical feel but with every modern amenity, including free wifi. There is a lovely, comfortable sitting room with a view of... More

Had a lovely weekend at Recorder house when we went to Chester races. A lot of the accommodation in Chester put the prices up for race days but we were really glad we chose to stay here as very reasonable and I believe their prices stay the same. Had a nice warm welcome, the room was lovely its a very... More
