My husband and I decided to stay here having heard all about the hotel on Chris Evans' radio show. Upon arrival to the hotel we were shown to the lounge where a complimentary glass of Prosecco awaited. What a lovely treat after a four hour car journey. We were shown to our room on the first floor which was really...

Dear Sarah and Simon Many thanks indeed for your very extensive review - very much appreciated. I'm very sorry about the mix-up over your request for no twin beds. We do have two rooms of the seven which have a 'full' mattress, so I'm very sorry we misunderstood your requirement. I do hope indeed that we can welcome you back...

Probably the best hotel we've stayed in for ages. It's reassuringly expensive but you get what you pay for and it is well worth it! We had a balcony room overlooking the river, birthday card, complimentary treats and glass of fizz on arrival. Huge, incredibly comfortable bed. Large flat screen Full HD TV with unlimited Netflix and Amazon streaming. Sofa,...

Undoubtedly one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed at. Everything is absolutely topline and well though out, nothing is left to chance. We had a lovely room with an en-suite you would be proud to have in your home. In addition, the food in the restaurant was excellent. The staff were universally helpful and efficient. In sum. not...

We visited Edgar House on the 2nd April for one night for our mini-moon before our honeymoon at the end of the month. We had a Riverside Room which overlooked the garden at the front of the house on the ground floor. We arrived over an hour early for check-in but we were greeted with a personalised parking space, a...

We visited here for afternoon tea in March to celebrate a family occasion. It was lovely and my teenagers were made to feel very welcome too. The whole building is lovely and a real asset to Chester. We'll be back!

Booked by phoning the hotel. Really useful doing it this way and felt is was a tailor made package. Great personal parking space. On arrival we were met by Katy who was lovely and showed us round, took us to our room, brought our luggage and gave us fizz. Beautiful room, amazing bathroom. Loved it all. Great breakfast. Great meal...

We were lucky to get a last minute cancellation at the Edgar House. Our room had its own balcony facing the river Dee and must be one of the nicest we have stayed in in the UK.
