“Dream accommodation for a special weekend”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed at the river house thanks to my friends excellent knack of sourcing quality accommodation. The river house is quite simply beautiful. Lovely house with a great feel as soon as you walk through the front door. Great location for city centre, walking or chilling with a few glasses of wine. Spotless in every way, tasteful decor, comfy beds. What more can I say, oh and the owner Craig responds to all correspondence! Would definitely return.

“Another Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Like Christmas, that comes around each year and you cannot stop it! We are the same. We have just spent our second Christmas at The Riverhouse and if possible, we enjoyed it more than last year. Melanie and Craig have created a perfect house for guests to truly feel relaxed and it has that "home away from home" feel. Christmas decorations, a decorated Christmas tree and a gorgeous personalised christmas cake greeted us on arrival (along with the welcome food package of bread, milk, butter etc). All very much appreciated. Also arriving from Australia to -2 in Chester, it was lovely to have the house warm and cosy upon arrival, rather than a cold house that hadn't been occupied for a few weeks.

The kitchen/meals area is really the heart of the house and our time was spent around the table socialising and entertaining family who live in Chester. The kitchen is extremely well equiped with quality kitchenware and everything is there that you could possibly need. Quality is everywhere from the furniture, beds, linen and accessories.

All the glowing praise for the house itself would be enough for a "normal" review, but the location of the house is very hard to beat also. Such a pretty location, and so very convenient for walking into Chester and all that this lovely city has to offer.

Thank you and congratulations again Craig and Melanie - you really have come up with the winning formula for a successful Holiday Rental business.

I can't praise this accommodation enough, but fear that too much publicity will mean there will be no vacancies for next year!!!!

“So lovely to be back and feel the same magic as before.”
Reviewed November 24, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This was our second visit to The River House and so soon after our last stay only 7 months before just goes to show the impact that it has had on us.

Whilst a little cooler than our last visit time in Chester during the March heat wave, Halloween at The River House was equally as special.

Waking up to such a wonderful view from the bedroom window makes you want to get up and walk be the riverside. Those slightly hazy mornings with the sun just breaking through creates such a magical atmosphere.

For us, this house has it all - comfort, luxury and location. The central location means that it is ideal for those with or without a car. At just 10 minutes walk from the railway station, it is possible for anyone to experience the delights of The River House.

So good, we've even booked again for next year!
