“great experience”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

nice room, fast wifi, good tv, nice and quiet, only 5 mins walk from the train station, nice owners, decent breakfast, recommended for anyone wanting to spend the night in chester. maybe the only bad thing is that its on the wrong side of the train station from the city centre, if youd rather be in the heart of the action.

Room Tip: theres a beer garden out the back and a road at the front so i guess there are upsides and downsides...

Lovely little guest house with clean, comfortable rooms and friendly, welcoming hosts who were quick to offer any help and advice on the local area - and free car parking !!
Ideally situated for Chester city centre (15 minutes walk) or pubs and bars in and around the Hoole area, literally around the corner.
Breakfast was nice and we got exactly what we requested with no trouble at all.
Would definitely book again !!

Stayed here last week. I booked direct over the phone and paid with debit card. It was quick and easy. One is never sure about the quality of the bed and breakfasts. This one was great, and I was made to feel that it was especially for me. They told me the room was small, and it was , but it was extremely comfortable and I had a good sleep. The breakfast was enourmous and very good indeed, with as much as I wanted: bacon and eggs etc, fruit, cereals, cheese, tea, coffee, toast and more. Thoroughly satisfying.
If I have to come to Chester again, which I will, I will definitely stay at this same place again. I am really pleased to have found it, and a big thankyou to Marie, who owns it with her partner.

Room Tip: Any room is good. No problems with any of them

Thank you so much for the lovely review, if only we were 5 star.....maybe one day!! We always think it's important to be truthful about the rooms etc, room 2 is quite a small single but as you say is clean and comfortable and we feel very good value for money. We do have much larger en-suite rooms available, something for everyone. We hope to see you next time you are visiting the Zoo.

All the best, M&M

I attended a 75th birthday party at the guest house, where we were situated in the bar. Food was catered for about 30 of us and was of exceptional quality, there was a great variety- something for everyone's needs and it was great value for money. The location is perfect as it is not a far walk into the town centre. There is a lovely little beer garden which I imagine is gorgeous in the sun! The staff were really friendly and catered for every need we had. Would definitely recommend staying here or hiring for a party!

We stayed at the guest house as part of a fairly large party. The service we got was superb and the guest house perfect for exploring Chester and its attractions. The owners are fantastic and will ensure you have a comfortable stay. The breakfast is great and the lounge bar the perfect place to relax for a while before heading out. The rooms are a little tired and may be in need of a little modernisation however, they are still comfortable and were perfect for what we needed. I would certainly use the lodge again and recommend it to others.

Brilliant service, great location and well worth the value! We stayed here for a girly weekend and it served it's purpose, very clean and the staff were lovely! We didn't have a full length mirror in the bedroom so the owner gave us one from reception (brownie points). The breakfast we had in the morning was fab and there was free parking which was a bonus. Overall not a bad word to say about the Devonia lodge!! Would 100% come again.

Mark and Maree were lovely hosts - enjoyed our chats Mark. We were in room 3 with a view out the back - very quiet, large room (great for re packing our suitcases etc) and very clean. The breakfasts were excellent and a great start to the day. The location was perfect for us, walking distance to all major attractions and the train station (only a 12 minute walk with our luggage). The car park is very large and located around the back of the lodge - directions from Mark easily followed. Very pleasant bar and dining area - light, nicely decorated and very comfortable. There are lots of good and cheap eating places within a 10 minute walk in both directions. As a mature couple, we highly recommend the lodge to all age groups. Something in Chester for everybody!
