“A great place to stay in Chester.”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The cottage was everything we had expected...My partner had reviewed on the internet, and was thrilled at our choice.The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and my partner was so thrilled at the location and cosy feel of the cottage. She is Korean and the experience has left her wanting to visit again. The modern yet antique feel is an experience to be savoured, and the hosts ensured we had everything we required. The lovely homely touch of the milk and tea ready for a nice relaxing cuppa after our long journey, together with a lovely bottle of wine and chocs (Yummy) for a relaxing evening winding down from our shopping / sight-seeing activities was well received. There are a number of alternate accomodation offered in Chester, but the cottages owned / managed by our hosts are of top quality.....so why bother with anything less? Well worth the visit and was an additional joy to a great holiday......can't guarantee the UK weather, but can guarantee a great place to stay during your visit.

“Fantastic Break.”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Lovely cottage in a quiet location, but within east reach of this lovely city, We received a warm welcome from Karen, who left us with a welcome pack, including wine and chocolates. The interior is so lovely, with all the comforts one could want. brand new Smart TV and Blu ray player.
I would say that this is the best self catering place we have stayed in.

I am so pleased that you enjoyed Jasmine Cottage. The Smart Samsung 40" HD t.v. was purchased a few weeks' ago together with the Blu Ray DVD player from the John Lewis At Home Store which is a 5 minute walk from the cottage. Guests can now look forward to watching their favourite programmes when it suits them and not worry about recording them in advance. Thank you again for taking the time to write a review. Very much appreciated - Karen Buchan, property owner.

“Excellent value”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Three of us spent a week looking around Chester. We travelled by train. The Cottage is. About 10 minutes from the Chester Bus Exchange with the stop 100metres away.Its well equipped and immaculate. Good car space if required. A good walk into Chester via the canal ( c 30 mins). Excellent value for money. A bonus was the fresh fruit ,wine and welcome pack awaiting our arrival

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am very pleased you enjoyed your time in Jasmine Cottage. A lot of my guests who arrive by train use the bus service into the city centre. The buses are very frequent and run about every 10 minutes into the city centre. The bus station is also near the Chester Tourist Information Centre at the Town Hall. This is very handy if guests want to book excursions or pick up information on exploring Chester and Cheshire. Many thanks again - Karen.

“Excellent cottage”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at this cottage during a trip home from australia and it exceeded all expectations and was a real home away from home. If you needed it the cottage had it, it was comfy, warm and well thought out. The owners even put up christmas decorations which was a nice touch! There was parking outside but it was a 15 minute walk to chester. There was lots of local information and dvds for quiet nights. We will stay there again and we have recommended it to a friend.

I am so pleased that my cottage exceeded your expectations and thank you for saying so. I try to make the cottage as warm and inviting as I can especially when I know that you have travelled from as far away as Australia and just need to rest after such a long journey. Thank you for recommending Jasmine Cottage to your friends. This again is very much appreciated. Karen Buchan [Property Owner]

This was our 3rd stay in Jasmine Cottage and we have also stayed in another of Karen's properties in Chester in the past. Karen's standards have not slipped at all, the property is in immaculate condition with everything you could possibly need for a weeks self catering. We were met by Karen on day one who gave us a friendly greeting and showed us around. A box of chocolates, biscuits, fresh fruit and milk were all left which was a nice touch. The property is well located with a bus stop right outside which allowed a quick and cheap bus trip into Chester to save using the car and it is a great location for visiting other places in the north west and Wales. Would highly recommend! We have stayed In a large number of self catering properties over the years and this probably ranks as the best.

I am so pleased that you and your family enjoyed staying in Jasmine Cottage again. Self catering accommodation is ideal for families giving you the freedom to explore the delightful city of Chester or simply taking a day off to relax in "home from home" surroundings. Thank you for taking the time to write this super review and for recommending Jasmine Cottage to your family for next year. This was very much appreciated.

“Best self catering in Chester, a home from home!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

We have recently returned from our 11th year staying at Jasmine Cottage and it really feels like our second home, my daughter has been coming here since she was 3 years old.
It is within a peaceful area in a nice little cul-de-sac, but is less than 5 minutes drive from Chester town centre. A retail park with a cinema and bowling alley is only a short walk away so it really is convenient place to stay with the family. It is a good base for those people who wish to explore other attractions as there is so much to do for all age ranges, we never run out of things to see or do and each year we find something different. Even if you are stuck for ideas there is a huge amount of brochures and leaflets in the cottage of suggested places to go.

Jasmine Cottage itself is always kept immaculate, everything you could possibly need is provided such as a hairdryer, bathrobes and toiletries, which is very handy and saves you bringing a lot with you if you are faced with luggage restrictions. You also only need to buy groceries as everything else is provided - washing powder, dishwasher powder etc.

Karen and Alan are there to welcome you on your arrival and the added touches they provide of fresh flowers, fruit etc really feel personal. They always take note of people’s ideas and each time we go back they have improved something within the cottage from furniture (I think we’ve seen 3 different sofas in our time!) to flooring.

The garden is lovely and private to sit in on a sunny summer’s evening or even in the morning with a cup of tea/coffee.

Entertainment is provided for those rainy days when you don’t want to go out or even if you just need a chill out day, DVD’s, games and books are on hand and obviously wi-fi is available and is a definite perk when bringing mobile devices as it’s great to keep in touch with people and look up things to do and what’s on nearby, I would say that is a bonus feature as even in all the hotels I have stayed in on various holidays they will charge you for this which Karen and Allan don’t.

If you have a car you are guaranteed a park right outside the door, great for when you’ve been hitting the shops and have lots of bags with you !

Jasmine cottage more than deserves all the awards it has earned, it is without a doubt gold standard, it truly is a home away from home, thank you Karen and Allan – see you again next year!!
