Just arrived home after a night in Chester staying at the Devonia. We had a triple room. Room slightly dated but in the process of being upgraded. Very clean and staff attentive. Allowed us to park in their car park before and after check in/out! Breakfast was lovely and you could not ask for a better location. Great base to explore Chester. Thanks very much :)

Many thanks for your comments, really glad you enjoyed your weekend in Chester. As mentioned in your review we are in the process of redecorating our rooms (AGAIN....seems never ending ha ha), however it's always good to choose new furniture and colour schemes over coffee and cake!! so always a plus side. Hopefully next time you come you will be even more impressed. Take care, kind regards, M&M

I stopped here on the 31 August 2013 with 6 other girls on a Hen party (2 double rooms and a triple room). It's a brill place to stop, not far from the town centre and nobody had any complaints! The owners were really friendly and welcoming and served up a lovely breakfast in the morning! If I do return to Chester I would definitely return to Devonia Lodge Guest House and recommend to anyone looking for a cheap but comfortable stay :D

I stayed here 2nights with 2friends in room 3. Really spacious room nothing to complain about! Lovely friendly staff, full breakfast was very yummy. Very clean place to stay highly recommended! Walking distance from Chester town centre. Also lots of space to park in their car park at the back which we were also able to use after we had checked out for that day!

I had a one night stay here with my mother as we were attending Oulton Park over the bank holiday and wanted to stay near Chester.

The owners were very friendly and helpful and first impressions were that it clean and bright. The Devonian is a good location as it is only a short walk into Chester. The room was clean and had all the amenities you wold expect. Cooked breakfast was also fresh and very tasty.

The only criticism was the shower did not get hot. There is a notice in the room explaining that they are in the process of refurbishing the showers and I did leave it quite late, so my advice would be to shower early!

On the whole I would choose to stay here again and I would recommend it to others. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5, which was a twin/family room. It was clean, spacious and bright. It faced the m...

We stayed with Mark and Marie on the 16th August 2013 for our daughters wedding held at the Oakfield Manor Chester Zoo on the 17th. The accommodation was highly recommended to us by the happy couple as they sometimes have a drink in the lounge bar and get on very well with the owners. We were not disappointed but highly delighted to have found such a friendly and hospitable, clean place to stay in Chester when we visit again. The breakfast was excellent too. Thank you Mark and Marie
