“Outstanding, homely, extremely high quality and superb location!”
Reviewed 31 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

6 of us stayed here for my freinds 30th over bank holiday and we were all blown away by how wonderful it was.
Immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, extremely well-equipped with everything you could possibly need.
The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to ensure we were happy. They even left a welcome pack left for us with a huge vase of flowers! Such wonderful, 5 star touches.
The location is incredible and in an all-time best spot - just under The Spenny brigde, so good views, relaxing environment and only 10 minute stroll along the walls into the epicentre of town or 5 minutes the other way to the meadows.

“Amazing stay!!! Wonderful place!!!!”
Reviewed 25 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We have just returned from an amazing weekend break at The River House. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. We were met by Craig who gave us a full rundown on where everything was and how it all worked. The house is fully equipped for everything you'd want with three large bedrooms, a big living room and the piece de resistance - the fantastic dining kitchen. This was where we spent most of our time! Having unpacked we followed one of Melanie's suggestions in the information email we received and went to Hickory's (An American smokehouse style restaurant). This place was only a minute's walk from the house but the food and atmosphere was amazing. Feeling rather full we ambled back to the house and sat in the peaceful back garden polishing off the organic cider that had been kindly included in the welcome pack we were greeted with on arrival.

The house is only a stones throw from the Center of Chester and within easy driving distance of many attractions plus the cities of Liverpool and Manchester.

The riverside area provides some lovely walks and there are a number of pubs and restaurants along the way where you can sit and watch the boats, canoes and pedalos pass by.

Overall I couldn't fault the stay and within hours of arriving at The River House the four of us were consulting our diaries to check when we could come back again!!!

“Perfect property for a weekend with friends, in a great location”
Reviewed 11 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We were looking for a property to rent near to Chester town centre to share with friends for a weekend at the races. The River House was perfect - 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a lovely big kitchen which was where we spent most of our time when we were in the property.
We have rented a number of properties and this is one of the best we have stayed in. Very well equipped, spotlessly clean and furnished to a very high standard.
The property is in a great location, with lovely views across the river and only a few minutes walk to the town centre.
Melanie was really helpful, providing restaurant recommendations and even tips for the races!
We would definitely stay here again. Thanks to Melanie and Craig for allowing us to share your lovely property.

“Absolutely faultless”
Reviewed 5 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

The River House Chester is a fantastic place to stay with the river Dee directly in front and Grosvenor park directly behind plus the city centre 2 mins walk away.
We decided to head to Chester at the last minute due to a few events being held there over the weekend plus the forecast of excellent weather. We looked for self catering accommodation due to us having a 7 month old baby and came across this place, to my amazement they had availability so after a quick phone call with Melanie we were booked in.

Once we arrived Melanie greeted us at the house and gave us a quick tour and made sure we knew how to work everything then we was left alone to enjoy our weekend, and we wasn't disappointed. The house has everything we needed including a tv in every room,dishwasher,washing machine etc a real home from home decorated to a very high standard. All in all absolutely faultless.

We will definitely be returning.
