We were lucky enough to find this boutique styled hotel on the banks of the river and on the wall of Chester. Short walk into town - very convenient to explore Chester by foot. Accommodation was lovely - tastefully decorated with nice sized room and bathroom. Nice touches like the fresh ground coffee ready to go in the plunger for...

We visited this excellent hotel on the way to visit our daughter in North Wales & we were not disappointed. We were greeted by our name tag in the car park which was right outside our bedroom. Every member of staff made us feel welcome & nothing was too much trouble. The hotel generally is bright modern & uniquely decorated...

Just spent another fantastic night at the excellent Edgar House in Chester. From the minute we arrived until the minute we left, we felt spoiled. From chilled Prosecco on arrival to sitting in the garden overlooking the river drinking coffee after the best breakfast ever, the experience was, as always, excellent. The whole team ensure guests are very well looked...

This was our second visit to Edgar House and it was as exceptional and enjoyable as the first time. We have no complaints about this hotel at all: It is a well managed, comfortable, beautifully decorated property with excellent attention to detail and additional personal touches that warrant the accolades that it continues to receive. We stayed in a corner...

Heard about this small boutique hotel via an article in the Telegraph newspaper recently, which was very positive, so thought we should try it. We were not disappointed. The attention to detail was delightful, all the staff were so charming. Our room overlooked the Dee river, and was well-appointed (although, whilst I love Molton Brown products, I do love an...

Very nicely furbished small hotel/private house, situated close to the river, town and racecourse. Parking is available right outside in a private off road area, and there is an entrance forward to the riverside and through the car park into town. Rooms are exquisite with stylish decor and everything you could need. An honesty bar complements the welcoming and calming...

Dear Skyjockey99 Many thanks indeed for your lovely review. I'm very sorry your check-out seemed slow. We do prefer to think that, as part of the general un-winding experience at Edgar House, you're made to feel un-hurried and relaxed so we're very sorry to have delayed you. I do hope that didn't spoil your stay too much and I hope...
