We stayed last night for one night in the river view deluxe room. The personal service started from my initial email enquiry which Amy answered in great detail. I then called to confirm the reservation, Jane booked this in & sent a detailed email confirmation. I then requested our dinner reservation time to be changed which was all updated with...

We enjoyed a fantastic weekend away at Edgar House, the location is perfect, with the sound of the River Dee soothing and whisking us both off to a great nights sleep in our homely yet stylish bedroom. From the moment I made the booking the staff were super helpful. Not intrusive at all they were always on hand to help,...

We decided on a short break to Chester this year and had heard from a friend how good this place was. We weren't disappointed. Edgar House is excellent and as good a place to stay as you will find. A little tricky to find but once there the welcome was excellent. We both had a drink as they were finalising...

Beautiful small and personal hotel, friendly and professional staff. Well maintained, clean and gorgeous rooms, elegant decor and wonderful views of the river, truly stunning location! Had scones and champagne on arrival, a beautiful 3 course dinner and fabulous breakfast, was faultless. Could park in allocated space well past check out time which allowed us time for a good walk...

Absolutely loved staying here with my partner on New Years Eve 2016. We received a polite call the day before arrival checking on our requirements, we had our own car parking space when we arrived, the staff were inviting and polite, our room was stunning (we had a standing tub and a open shower, along with a beautiful large bed),...

The most comfortable and stylish hotel in a perfect location. All the "big things" are amazing and the "little things", that make all the difference are truly outstanding; the attention to detail throughout borders on the forensic. Dining within Edgar House at Twenty 2 is a wonderful experience we sampled both the a la carte and tasting menu with accompanying...

The other reviews are correct; this place is very special indeed. The actual hotel is in a fantastic location and all the extras such as named complimentary parking; champagne and truffles on arrival and the most gorgeous room help! It's the service and team though that make this hotel stand head and shoulders above other similar 5 star type establishments....

Amazing location, decor. Private parking out the back which is unusual for city centre. Stunning in the summer as you can take advantage of the beautiful private garden, great views, willow trees and comfy seating. Owners are professional and attentive and. Art naturally welcoming. Had lunch and afternoon tea there several times as well as pre dinner drinks. Love this...

We are lucky enough to have been on our third visit to the utterly superb Edgar House. I dont say that lightly, its a genuinely fabulous place. Superbly located right on teh city walls and with its own car park with named parking spaces there isnt a much better location to explore Chester. We went for the luxury balcony room...
