“Lovely warm & friendly atmosphere......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Recently visited with 4 other friends. Bedrooms very basic,(3 in 1 room, 2 in another) but clean, beds extremely comfy. Cooked breakfast in the morning was lovely. Friendly helpful staff. The only downside was the size of bathroom (but there was a note to say they will be renovating in the future) after running/using the shower it was like being in a sauna. Overall a lovely stay and I'm sure if we decide to go back to Chester for a night out again, we will surely come back here.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a good honest review, as mentioned we are in the process of updating certain areas in the B&B and we appreciate your understanding with that. We are aware that the bathroom in room 3 is a bit too small for a group sharing and are planning how to make it bigger without losing too much of the room but hey ho we're getting there!! Thanks again. Kind regards, M&M x

Really great hosts - I felt very welcome. They were really flexible and helpful too. Great location between the station and town with plenty of parking. Bedrooms basic but clean and comfortable. TV and free wifi. Nice big breakfast. No difficulties accessing shared bathroom (which was very clean!). Great for anyone on a budget.

For the second year running we - myself and two mates - stayed at the Devonia Lodge for a recent friday night meeting at Chester races. I can most certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who is on budget as it offers excellent value for money. Although the rooms are fairly basic they are both clean and comfortable. The shared bathroom was also nice and clean with a decent shower. Both the proprietors, Mark and Marie, are extremely friendly and make you feel very welcome. Another plus point is the free parking at the rear of the property. We will certainly be going back there next year when we attend the same race meeting.

I cannot praise this hotel enough. Rooms were clean and the owners were so flexible and helpful I would not hesitate to stay again.
Refurb going on in places but the parts already updated are very nice, modern and comtemporary but haven't lost the character of the original building. Lovely easy walk to the centre of Chester. Parking too at rear a god send as parking in Chester is a big issue.

Room Tip: We had 2 triple rooms which were located at the back away from the main road.

I stayed here for one night because I was going to the chester races. When we arrived our room wasnt ready (we were early!!) It didnt matter because they allowed us to go to it to leave our things and to get ready. The room was ready by the time we got back. Very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was clean and the shower was good.

In the morning we got up for breakfast. Full English, YUM!! Plenty of choice.

I would recommend this hotel and stay here again.
