Ba-Ba is a great place to stay - well located and great value for the business traveller. Bill & June couldn't do enough to make me feel at home and I couldn't have wished for better service. I will be going back again. Thanks guys - Richard.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this lovely bed and breakfast, it was so close to the train station it only took 5 mins in a cab to get there and with a bus stop right outside the front door, the journey into Chester town centre couldn't have been easier!

Very clean rooms, delicious breakfast and friendly owners made the experience all the better, I will definitely recommend my friends to stay here and be coming back myself to do the Christmas shopping in Chester!!!!

What a nightmare we had when we stayed at the Ba Ba guest house. The room was freezing cold, they turn the heating off at 8.30 in the evening, regardless of the outside temperature. My kids wore PJ's, dressing gowns, socks and jumpers to bed but were still cold!.

The shower ensuite absolutely stank of cigarettes, the smokey smell wafts in through the ducting or from under the floor boards from the next door guest house. Our room smelt so bad that we were forced to move up to the top of the house the following day.

The room smelt better but again it was freezing cold. The ensuite shower in this room was either freezing cold or burning hot.

On the plus side, the guest house was very clean. The bedding particularly the duvets were thin and tired and if the heating is going to be turned off early then they should at least ensure that warm winter weight duvets are provided.

The breakfast was ok, not great by any means.

The owner seemed ok but made no allowance for our cold and stinking room by way of a reduction on the price when it came to settle the bill.

To be totally honest this was the worst guest house we have ever stayed in, it was disappointing from start to finish. Sorry Ba Ba you just don't measure up to your four stars at all.

Baba is a clean and friendly B & B, very handy for the town centre and the train station. The building has a lot of character and an interesting history . My room was spacious with a good flatscreen tv (Freeview) and en-suite bathroom.

We stayed recently with our 3 month old son and were thrilled with the service and presentation. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed for the weekend; the facilities and guest house in general were very clean, modern and beautifully decorated. We took advantage of the free tickets to Chester Zoo and had a fantastic time and saved a lot of money. Everybody was extremely helpful, recommending places to eat, places to go for the day and even helping out with our son!!! We loved the guest house - the breakfast was superb too!!! We had a fantastic weekend, the minute we arrived we were made to feel like family and extremely welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a fantastic weekend and will definitely be staying again when we visit Chester!!!

We stayed here for one week and were treated very well and no request was to much. The room was very clean and tidy and the cooked breakfast was amazing.
With only a short walk into Chester city Centre it was perfect and we will return next year.

The Ba Ba Guest House is in a great location, just 15 minutes walk along the riverside from the centre of Chester. The guest house itself is a beautiful old building, with modern and functional bedrooms that have everything you'd need.

The owners made me feel very welcome and provided me with plenty of ideas for things to do and places to see whilst I was visiting Chester. A great breakfast of bacon, eggs and all the trimings really set me up for a big day of sightseeing.

There is plenty to see and do in Chester, and it also provides a great base to explore Manchester, Liverpool and North Wales. This place is definitely worth a visit.
