“Fabulous apartment with lovely views and great location”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment was lovely, the decor made it feel so bright and spacious really well laid out with nice little touches! It was such a great location a stones throw from everything we needed and so peaceful and tranquil by the river! The bridge was a great place to people watch we all had a lovely weekend the weather was an added bonus too! I'm sure we will return in the future. Nice fresh flowers, milk, fresh bread and tea/coffee on arrival was a lovely touch. Everything you need was thought about.

Only a few recommendations the towels were soft & fluffy but in the small side, with such a well laid out kitchen an added recycle bin in there would make it easier to keep tidy. With small things as this shows there's nothing to complain about in such a fabulous property well done Melanie this is how it should be done

Thank you for your wonderful review. We love it when our guests enjoy their stay and relax into the apartment. The river is such a special place - it seems to relax everyone even though there is plenty going on in the daytime. As you said, evenings are very peaceful.

I take on board your suggestions and thank you for thinking about those small improvements.
Kind regards

Hello Joanne
Thank you for your very kind review. We've worked really hard to make Riverside Apartment as wonderful as River House and Waters Edge. I'm so glad you found it to be just what you needed for your getaway. Chester is a special place and we have a lovely spot to enjoy it.
Come back soon!
Kind regards
Melanie

“Lovely apartment”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed for a mid week break at the Riverside, it was lovely, brilliant location by the river, with a short walk to the town centre. Beautifully decorated, comfy, beds and lounge area. Lovely fluffy white towels but better if they were bigger so could snuggle in them after a shower and a shelf in shower for toiletries would be good, but neither of these are deal breakers. A very tranquil and peaceful retreat, just what you need to unwind. Lovely views of river and footbridge from lounge and bedroom windows. A nice pub and tea rooms just five minutes walk by the river. Melanie (the owner) could not have been more helpful from start to finish. If you thinking of visiting Chester then stay here, you won't regret it.

“Location, Location, Location”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Let’s start with the location.

An uninterrupted view of the river and the suspension bridge that spans the Dee is the highlight. The struts for the bridge in fact are in the garden! The path outside leads straight into the park and a short five minutes later you are in the centre of the pedestrian zone of Chester or riding the mini-railway around the park. Or if you want to walk to the start of the various boat ride opportunities that is just 50 metres from the door. Add another 50 meters and you can join the city walls walk. So Location, Location, Location is a very fair title for this apartment.

The interior of the apartment is very classy, comfortable and everything you would need is there for any self-catering you want to do. We were a family group –The wife and I plus granny and the two grown up kids. So five of us in total.

The apartment living area was spacious enough that we could all sit together in great comfort and enjoy either the view, the huge TV – Bigger than our 42 inch Plasma at home. Maybe 60 inches? Or just enjoy conversation in convivial surroundings. WiFi speed is just over 5meg which is fine.

There are three bedrooms. All have very comfortable beds and pillows. Lots of hanging and drawer space. The en-suite has a good powerful shower and lots of space. - The main bathroom had both a shower and a bath.

The apartment is entered from the back door which is a gate into an enclosed garden with chairs and table. Its sheltered but as it rained quite a lot while we were there we never used it. You then enter the house on the ground floor where there is ample space for coats and footwear. There is a utility room here with washer and drier. Up the stairs and you enter the apartment proper.

Car parking is in the garden space and is spacious enough for two large cars. One behind the other.

Gripes? Not enough toilet rolls (3), no recycling containers in the house (I’m very green) and nowhere to put soap, shampoo in shower. If that’s the limit of gripes, you haven’t got much to complain about.

I love the miniature railway in the park. It's such good fun for the children. Throw in some duck feeding on the River Dee and there's a lot of lovely old fashioned family time just waiting on the doorstep. Thank you for your very kind review. Much appreciated.

“Super location, home from home”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a fantastic mini-break for three nights at this apartment. The accommodation itself is lovely and more spacious than it looks in some of the photos. Although the location is very central it is also a peaceful and quiet area and we weren't disturbed at night sleeping with the windows open. The curtains do look and feel thick, I think they are heat-insulated but they do let the light through so I was glad we took a black-out blind for the boys room.
The boys were very entertained watching out the window (good low height for young children although take care when they are open - we lost a toy car out of one that was later retrieved!) looking at the passers-by on the bridge, listening to the bands playing at the bandstand, spotting the passing boats and the man who jumped off (intentionally - to swim that is).
The location of this apartment was particularly great - short walk in to town, even closer to the park with the miniature railway which was a hit with the boys. Cheshire Farm ice-cream outlet a couple of hundred yards away - although my husband was a little disappointed they didn't stock the enormous 4 scoop waffle cone as he was looking forward to that challenge!
So many good places to eat out - spoilt for choice.
The people who run this property are clearly experienced and it shows - for example, we self cater a lot and often take with us things like extra dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll, loo rolls etc as many places don't provide enough for the stay but it was all there, and I was pleased to find cling film too as I had just made a whole lot of sandwiches to take to the zoo and had nothing to put them in. They also have a couple of packed lunch boxes too.
Overall a super stay in great accommodation, I am already recommending to my friends!
