A very warm welcome from the owners who took us up to the room that was bright and airy. Very nicely decorated and well laid out with a large en-suite tucked away in the corner. A nice size and lovely comfortable bed. Tea and coffee making facilities and also nice to read a little bit of the history of the... More

Chester Recorder House did well in some places and not so great in others. In short: - Fab location, slap bang on the Historic Walls. Open the front door and you're right there, in the middle of it all, with a great view of the river. - The B&B had a great historic feel to it, with many original features,... More

Thank you for all your positive comments. I am sorry the breakfast wasn't quite to your husband's taste - pity he didn't say something and we would have tried to help, as we have had many very good reviews about our breakfasts. We are aware of poor pressure with the shower at times - a combination of several people using... More

Great location for exploring Chester town, really comfy bed, nice hot shower and great breakfast. Unfortunately the parking is an issue as there is not enough spaces for the number of rooms. This is not made clear on their website. We had parking the first day, but had to find alternative parking for the second night - meaning we had... More

Thank you for your positive comments. However, I am surprised by your difficulty with parking as I am not aware of any guest 'having to find alternative parking' for the second night (other than moving to a space further around the car parking area). We have 5 of our own parking spaces, plus another 3 that we can use at... More

Superb accommodation, superb hospitality and superb location... all of which was topped off by superb breakfasts on both of the mornings of our stay. I can wholeheartedly recommend the Recorder House to anyone who appreciates a sense of 'quirkyness' !

What a treasure. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The room was fantastic and in keeping with the period of the house (the four poster bed was huge but very comfy). All up to date amenities that you expect today. It was great to be able to sit and relax looking out over the river. Will definitely be returning.

Beautiful traditional hotel. Warm friendly reception from the hosts Adrian & Fiona who could not do enough to help make our stay & visit to Chester most enjoyable. The rooms are all clean & have all the amenities expected today whilst maintaining the traditional style of the hotel. Wifi is one of the best I have experienced at a hotel... More

Great nights stay in a traditional styled room. The location was perfect, a short walk along the Wall into town, with plenty of parking at the back . The breakfast was great and the owners had great knowledge of the area for points of interest in Chester town.

Stayed here for two nights while visiting my daughter. The Recorder is well placed right on the wall near the river. It's very quaint with loads of original features. We stayed on the top floor at the back, the room as quite small but very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent and set us up for the day! Owners are very... More

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.
