Decided to get away for a few days on the spur of the moment..We chose Bowman Lodge (from a list of many) on its photos, reviews and above all price. We were not dissappointed this is a 3 star b+b and our room was clean, tidy and comfy and breakfast was atreat! But the best of all were our hosts they are warm friendly and above all genuine. We had a lovely few days exploring the beautiful historic city of Chester and even had good weather! Will definitely recommend by the Bowman Lodge and Chester to my friends

My friend and i stayed at the Bowman whilst on a shopping trip to Chester, and for the cost of the accomodation couldnt find fault. It was clean and comfortable and had a really nice breakfast included in the price. The owners where very friendly and helpful. Chester is a lovely city only wish we had more time there. The Bowman is located in the suburb of Hoole which in itself is lovely with plenty of shops,pubs and places to eat. and only a short walk to the city.

I don't like to leave a poor review, but the cleanliness and state of rooms was appalling. Let me start with what was good:
The owner was friendly enough
Location great
Breakfast - defo best part of stay, fantastic and lots of it.
But...
Room was absolutely filthy, cobwebs down walls, carpet you wouldn't want to walk on with bare feet. Decoration is like something out of 70's with nylon like bed spreads. Really needs a lot of love.

Sorry.

Dear Sir/Madam
Thank you for staying with us, i must stay i was disturbed to hear of your complaints, what i find even more perturbing is the fact that in 12 years neither myself nor the trained hotel inspectors of Visit Britain have come across the problems you managed to find in your brief stay with us.
Regards

many thanks to mike at the Bowman Lodge .room was spotless, spacious and in good order .And the breakfast was lovely, freshly cooked and generous portions. there are plenty of local pubs and restraurants within the area of hoole. its only a 20 min walk into the city. Chester is a lovely city well worth a visit. all in all a very enjoyable weekend

I don't normally fill these sort of things in but I would recommend the Bowman to anybody. It was easy to find from the motorway and just a stroll from the charming Chester City Centre. The staff where pleasant, welcoming and informative. It was clean and tidy and the bedding was fresh and crisp. In the mornings the breakfast was cooked just the way I like it and piping hot. And finally I found it to be good value for money too! Highly Recommended.

Came to Chester with my husband for the weekend as I have travelled there on business quite a few times but never had time to go around the city. We stayed at Bowman Lodge which is on Hoole Road about a mile out of the city. The room was spacious and clean, the owners Jayne and Mike were very helpful and the cooked breakfast was exactly what we needed after a night out! Great pub opposite The Oaklands I think it was called and Chester is good for shopping and has some great places to eat and drink.
