This is a small B&B/Hotel run by Fiona and Adrian who are the most welcoming of hosts. The rooms are beautiful we had a room at the rear but I would recommend if they are available you book a room at the front overlooking the river the views are amazing. It is well situated - you can walk directly out... More

My wife & I stayed here 2 nights. We had a lovely friendly welcome from Fiona, a fantastic room overlooking The River Dee which was lovely to hear during the night. The location is excellent in that you have safe secure parking behind the hotel yet you can walk the front door straight onto the Roman Walls then walk into... More

Recorder House is so well located - right on the walls. If you are lucky enough to have a room overlooking the river, you can enjoy the sight of water birds and the murmuring of the water as it passes. Our room was very well appointed, with a full range of toiletries and even two flannels. Breakfast was lovely, with... More

Stayed at The recorder House for 2 nights in May. The highlight is the breakfast which is second to none! We had a room on the first floor at the back of the house. The curtains don't close, due to the being gathered to tightly on the drawstring - no good if you like to sleep in total darkness! This... More

Our flight was over an hour late into Heathrow and we were going to be arriving several hours later than planned. I called and they were so great and reassuring. When we arrived we were given a gorgeous, spotlessly clean room, (double ensuite rear), shown where everything was, then sent of for some whirlwind sightseeing. It was exactly what we... More

Excellent location with superb view of the river from our room. Only stayed the one night unfortunately but would definitely book again. Service good and enjoyed our breakfast. Also, liked the little touch of having access to cold fresh milk and water from fridge outside out room.

My family and I spent a really good time in this B&B. There is a wonderful atmosphere, the rooms are tiny but wonderful. I really loved the breakfast, I had the chance to taste a real British breakfast, and it was so good. It is also located near the centre. But what I liked most was the kindness of the... More

The best thing about owning a bed and breakfast is meeting and chatting with so many interesting people - and it is lovely when this is appreciated as it is in your review. Sorry about the temperature of the bathroom - hope it didn't spoil your visit. More
