“We'll be back”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

We stayed last weekend and enjoyed our stay. We were in the annex which was a little fresh, but nice enough once we got the heaters fired up. Mercedes is a friendly and helpful hostess, and the little touches like homemade preserves etc mean we will return.

We stayed her for a night over in Chester last weekend. We had the Annex and our friends the upstairs double. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, the standout memory here is the fantastic service provided by the lovely Mercedes. She was fantastic from the start, We will definitely be returning.

My son and I stayed here when visiting Chester last month and had the annex which was perfect for us. It only takes about 15 minutes to walk into the centre of Chester and the lovely couple that run this guesthouse recommended a place to eat nearby on the Friday night which was excellent. Holly House is comfortable and the breakfast was just fantastic - but a word of warning - if you have the blueberry pancakes do not have anything else first!! They are delicious but very filling!

Stayed one night early in October, booking two rooms for the family. We were met by the owner who kindly moved his car to give us a parking space. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order and served with a smile. All in all, very good value and will stay there again if in the area.

This review is rather late I am afraid, as we spent a fabulous three nights at Holly House in August. Had intended to write this as soon as we got back but there always seemed to be something else to do, sorry Mercedes! We had such a lovely greeting on arrival with a cup of tea and home made scones in the garden. This was a cosy, clean, very friendly guest house, where nothing was too much trouble, and the breakfasts were divine! It was also in walking distance of many nice places to eat. Thank you for a wonderful stay, I would like to think that we will visit again one day. Sue and Mike.

What sets Holly house apart from larger hotels are the little details. We have just returned from a weekend in Chester celebrating my wife's 40th birthday and our 10th wedding anniversary. When we arrived we were greeted by the fabulous host Mercedes who made us a fresh pot of tea and coffee, she had also put a bunch of fresh roses and thorntons chocolates in our room as we were celebrating. The room was more than adequate for our needs and was within walking distance of the city centre. The breakfast was all freshly cooked, not a buffet like in the bigger hotels. Mercedes also makes her own jams which are delightful. Mercedes is a wonderful host and made our stay most enjoyable and we felt like proper guests rather than just a number. Would recommend Holly house to anyone visiting Chester and we will definitely be returning.
