Great staff, great breakfast, great location and fantastic bedroom! What more could you want? Unfortunately we only stayed for one night which is a shame but would love to return. The lady who runs the hotel is lovely and couldn't do enough for you. I also feel the price for the rooms is reasonable considering the location; it is significantly... More

Stayed 3 nights and would have liked to have had more time there. Fiona and Adrian run a superb ship and were genial hosts. Front room overlooking the River Dee and Weir was an inspired choice. Comfortable lounge for guests. A full English Breakfast set us up perfectly for each day out. Will return as soon as possible. Very Highly... More

Our sat-nav helpfully took us to their car park ( a different post-code from the house) - and we were warmly welcomed despite being hours too early in arriving. A lovely old house on the City Walls, our room gave us a south-facing view over the River Dee - no traffic. We loved the huge yellow wardrobe and the four-poster... More

Recorder House is a lovely B&B just by the River in Chester, it's an old building but has lots of character. We slept in one of the front rooms which had a four poster bed which was really comfortable. The view of the river from our room was a bonus, it just makes you feel good to wake up, look... More

Stayed here for one night and very impressed with both Chester and this hotel. Our room was impressive with a four poster bed, comfy sofa and two armchairs and full tea and coffee making facilities with a small fridge in the corridor outside holding fresh milk ... A nice touch. Lovely fresh breakfast ingredients and friendly and attentive hosts.

We had one night in Chester - a stunningly beautiful city and we had the privilege of staying at the Recorder House. The car park is easy to find and very secure and from then on in one does not need to get in the car again. The B&B is right on the river Dee and on the walk way.... More

I stayed at the Recorder House last weekend to go the races with my boyfriend. We didn’t book a river view room but was given a room with a slight river view and we could here the river which was nice. I telephoned the hotel the day before our arrival to check if we could park in the car park,... More

Absolutely fantastic B&B with the most amazing warm welcome. Stayed here 12 years ago when under different ownership. Love the character of the place. Rooms are just lovely and the whole place spotless - definitely worthy of its 4 stars. Stayed in room 9 Gemini. The bed is Victorian with the most amazing comfortable mattress ever. Complimentary toiletries included not... More

Very well situated over looking the river with the weir giving a very pleasant sound. Easy access into the City. The rooms are all unique and very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very well cooked with plenty of choice. A must for anyone who prefers individuality rather than a chain, we definitely recommend.
