“Fantastic B&B in Chester”
Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

Have just spent five nights at this lovely B&B and had a wonderful stay. Situated near the train station and city centre but down a quite street so it's lovely and peaceful at night. Dave and Kirsty were both very friendly and the porridge they made for me for breakfast each morning was amazing. Room was great with large bathroom and everything you could want....the fridge was a lovely extra touch that came in handy. Would highly recommend this B&B and would not stay anywhere else in Chester.

Stayed May 2014, traveled solo

Stayed for three nights in February 2014.

Good location, off the main drag and easy to find at the end of a cul de sac with ample parking.

Fast friendly check-in with the offer of tea & cakes, either in our room or in the seating area next to reception.

We were in room 2 on the ground floor which was a nice room, the décor could have done with livening up here and there but this didn’t spoil our stay.

Good choice at breakfast with quick friendly service.

Two Niggles:

1. People letting the fire door to our part of the building bang shut instead of closing it was a major annoyance especially early doors if you wanted a bit of a lie in and sleepy time on a night.

2. The WiFi signal. We couldn’t connect in the room on any device, phone, kindle, iPad. I went to reception and was advised to unplug the wireless box in the hall and use this in our room. We did this and the reception was obviously very good, problem solved, however we felt a bit guilty having to do this of an evening as this must have affected other people’s connection.

All in all a great few days and I would highly recommend staying at Stone Villa especially if you like staying somewhere a bit quieter (apart from the fire door) and within an easy stroll of the City centre.

Thank you so much for reviewing Stone Villa after your 50th celebrations. We are delighted you had a good stay and we thank you for your feedback. We had detected both issues you raised and we can confirm that we bought 2 more of the wi-fi plug-ins so the 4 of them now sit in enough rooms to boost the signal in that part of the house. thank you for the opportunity to mention that. The fire door was annoying as you say, and I have fitted a soft closer on it so it doesn't bang anymore. Again thank you - we are always pleased to be able to improve our proposition. We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks again Dave and Kirsty

Planning our short break to coincide with the May race meeting at Chester races we wanted somewhere within walking distance of Chester City centre and so chose Stone Villa based on the great feedback already posted. We found Stone Villa nestling in the corner of a quiet cul-de-sac and easily parked our car in the well appointed car park. We arrived before our room was ready but this was no problem, we were treated to fresh coffee and homemade cake and told we could leave our cases in the dining room, such a welcome! We easily managed the walk into the city centre which took us about 20 minutes and enjoyed a great day at the races. We ate at Bella Italian in the city centre and enjoyed a well cooked and fairly priced meal. We then walked back to Stone Villa where we were checked in by Dave and given our room key. We stayed in room 9 St Werburgh at the front of the property. A lovely large room overlooking the car park. After a quick freshen up we decided to go out for a drink to The Faulkner as recommended by Dave. We were not disappointed! Great pub, food looked delicious and the ambience was relaxed and friendly. After a great night sleep we were treated to a first class breakfast served by Dave and Kirsty. Only wish we could have been staying for more than 2 nights...will definitely go back.

Room Tip: Very confident that all the rooms will be as nice as the one we stayed in! (Room 9)

I google everything to the nth degree (don't think I'm on my own there!), and once decided we were going to visit Chester for the weekend as a birthday treat, I was on a mission. Stone Villa stood out from the crowd as a place to go, and it didn't disappoint. Everything is clean and welcoming, car park spotless, frontage spotless, inside spotless, but not clinical just extremely welcoming from the second you arrive. The rooms have everything you could need, and more, for me it's the little touches that make all the difference. A decent hair dryer and kettle (not travel sized ones), an iron and ironing board, every kind of tea from English breakfast to green, a fridge containing complimentary bottles of water, a cork screw if you want to fill you fridge with wine, wine glasses so you don't have to drink from the bathroom ones!, nice quality tissues (a girl thing!), and a breakfast that was just lovely. As pretty much every review on here says, you feel welcome from the second you arrive to the moment you leave... Wish we could've stayed longer!

This was our second visit to this little gem in Chester and it certainly won't be the last! Dave and Kirsty make you feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door with the offer of a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake. Our bedroom was furnished to a very high standard and was extremely comfortable. The choice at breakfast will cater for every taste with the full English being a personal favourite. I have no hesitation in recommending Stone Villa.
