“Fabulous house and location”
Reviewed October 23, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The house is perfectly set. The River Dee as the view and a lovely walk into Chester. The house was warm, clean and inviting.
The extra touches made the stay that little bit more special. Coffee, tea and milk, flowers, the heating already for our arrival.
The kitchen was the hub of out stay.
Immaculate.

“Lovely house in a perfect location”
Reviewed October 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was our second stay in the River House. The first was with friends and this time we took our 9 year old twin granddaughters. The house was as well equipped and comfortable as the first visit some four years ago and the girls loved it. It is ideally situated in a quiet spot next to the river but within a few minutes walk of the town centre.

Lovely to have you back again, Kate. Children love the River House. They have the little courtyard garden to play in and the fascination of the ducks and the boats on the river. It's a good place to relax with children as everything is within easy walking, so you don't need a car.
Thank you for your visit and for looking after the house so nicely for us.
Hope to host you and your family again in the not too distant future.
Kind regards

We stayed at the river apartment for the weekend and it was perfect! Beautifully decorated, very clean and perfectly situated with a beautiful view of the river Dee.

The owner was easy to contact and very helpful during the booking process.

I would highly recommend this accommodation and will definitely be booking again!

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were spoilt for choice whether to sit at the front and gaze at the river or in the gorgeous little cottage garden at the back.Such a special location.
Everything was in wonderful taste and there was everything you would need and more for a faultless stay ...even down to the fresh flowers!
We loved it

“Fab time for a 60 th birthday”
Reviewed April 21, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at the riverside apartments , house was lovely had everything you could want and so comfortable . We did have a little problem with the heating but Melanie found the problem and apologised regarding this , so if you want a lovely place to stay with great views of the river and not far from the town centre then this is the place to stay .

“Fabulous, Tranquil & peaceful, beautiful river views 😊”
Reviewed April 9, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

It’s all true!
I read the reviews of the River House with a pinch of salt but after a week there I have to eat my words. It’s a lovely, tranquil place to spend time. I came to meet up with family and friends and I wasn’t disappointed. When you walk into the house it’s so welcoming. You feel immediately at home. It has a timeless feel about it that so few holiday cottages have. The decoration is very relaxing and nicely done. The views from the house are quite lovely, especially first thing in the morning and last thing at night when the river is still. At this time of year, it’s full of birds, and in the morning the rowers are practising. It’s a really special part of the world, in the middle of the city.
We spent most of our time chatting around the table in the very large kitchen. It has everything you might need, even things like tin foil and tupperware boxes. It was so nice we stayed in and played games rather than going out. The beds are very comfortable and we slept really well. One small suggestion for the owner would be to get a reading light for the far corner of the lounge as I struggled a little. Apart from that small suggestion, the house is a wonderful place to stay and we will definitely be back again.


Kind Regards
Debbie
