“Can't think of anywhere I'd rather stay in Chester - well worth remembering”
Reviewed 17 August 2011

The website shows it like it is - giving me high hopes that this would be really something special and we weren't disappointed.
From the first, very friendly contact with Roslyn, I knew that this would be good.
The instructions for finding the place and getting the key were very easy.
The apartment (we stayed in No. 1) was spacious, nicely decorated with a great tv and dvd player -even a washing machine. There is so much room, we cooked and ate in the flat, rather than at our friend's place!!!
Bathroom and shower are great too, but the biggest joy is opening the window out the front of the living room and seeing the cafes and shops.
Very impressed with the whole trip and really look forward to coming back again.

I recently stayed here with a group of friends and cannot fault anything about it! From the minute we arrived until we left, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were made to feel very welcome by the owner who helped recommend various bars and restaurants.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment over looking The Rows. We could not have asked for a more central location! Everything was within walking distance and the apartment was light and airy, with everything we could need in it! We also had the luxury of a car parking space.
I would highly recommend this accommodation for a city break to Chester. It is perfect for any type of holiday and the owner is a lovely lady who goes out of her way to make you feel welcome.
Thank you and I hope to return.

Not for the seriously unfit as it is up lots of stairs, but otherwise great location right in the centre, easy to find. Beautifully appointed, very tasteful and well equipped with far more than the basics. But therefore doesn't come cheap!
Bigger bath towels would be lovely - but that's nit-picking!

Close to the Rows, the River Dee, and within a few minutes of many excellent bars and restaurants.

Very comfortable, with every facility for a couple or small family. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

A all round great apartment. We stayed at the beggining of march for 3 nights. Amazing location over one of chesters main shopping streets(we were in the 2 bed barlows). Very tidy and decorated and fitted out to a very modern and high standard.
Great communication and help from the owner Roslyn. Great access and easy pick up and gaining of entrance into the apartment.
As the title says, all round quality. Chester is now our favourite roman city we ve visited in the uk(bath,York being the others)and the location and standard of apartment contributed Alot to this.
Only things to consider are that the apartment we had does have Alot of steps and the parking on pepper St ncp car park is not cheap (I had a bad knee at the time with regards to the steps ,and parking is available from Roslyn at 9£ a day but we didn't request it)

We used this as a refuge following a burst pipe which made our house in Chester uninhabitable. What a delight and what a superb location. As one who knows Chester well (we have lived there for over 30 years!) I cannot imagine a better location for a holiday in the centre of Chester. Convenient for shops, restaurants and general facilities this is a great destination, a superb facility and beautifully appointed.
