We stayed four days with Karen and Richard, two days at the beginning of our trip and two days at the end. Best choice I made! I chose all the B and Bs for our 3 week trip to England and Ireland based on reviews on Tripadvisor and most of the choices were great thanks to previous posters. Since I like to know what to expect before I go, I will list the details that were important to me.
Cleanliness: Immaculate. The bathrooms were cleaned everyday.
Decor: Very pleasant and restful
Space: Enough space not to feel cramped. The first room had a beautiful view to the back yard. Quiet. The second room was in front with two windows. It was a little smaller but the windows helped. Both had extra plugs for charging electronics.
Bathroom: Very clean, nice amenities from wonderful lotion to shower cap and robes, luggage rack
Shower: Good, hot water
Breakfast: Very good, cereal, fruit and full breakfast to order, tea and coffee upon arrival and aperitif in the evening.
Hospitality: Warm and welcoming. Very gracious. Helped with luggage. Karen called for information on tours and train schedules and Richard even gave us a ride to the train station! Karen made sure we had two luggage racks since we had to repack our bags before leaving and Richard got up early and fixed breakfast before we left. We hated to leave such nice people.
Location: Great location. Lovely neighborhood. Easy walk into Chester over the bridge on the River Dee with restaurants along the river and a park. Immediately across the bridge is the City Wall, Ruins of the Church of John the Baptist, with the Roman amphitheatre right there and the Tourist Center across the street. The Pedestrian Walk with the Row Houses is just another block away. Everything is very close and accessible. Felt safe walking at night.
Ease of finding: A little tricky the first time but after that wonderfully easy. The directions were good, we just came in the wrong way.
Price: Certainly worth every Pound!
Bed: Good. Taste in beds is personal. I like a firm bed. These were not firm but very comfortable.
WiFi: Good all through the house
Parking: Right at the front door enclosed by fence and shrubs
If I could go back to only one place, it would be this one. I highly recommend it.
