“Lovely river retreat near the heart of the city.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our party of three, myself, husband and 21 year old son, had a lovely stay at this beautiful house overlooking the river. The beds were very comfortable and the living room was cosy and welcoming where we spent some evenings relaxing after a busy day out and just watching the world go by. The kitchen is very clean and well equipped with everything you could need for a short or long stay and the welcome basket was a nice touch with bread, jam, biscuits, tea, coffee and fresh milk in the fridge. Everything was of good quality and I was very impressed with the tasteful décor as we have the same carpet and wall colour in our own house...
The house is only a short walk away from the bustling city centre(5 mins), which was lovely for shopping, lunches and dinners out, and we didn't need to worry about parking all the time, The courtyard garden was a really nice quiet retreat to read and enjoy a glass of wine or two in the evening and my son used the spare bed room to practise his guitar playing.
Altogether a lovely holiday and we would definitely stay at the River House again if we were visiting Chester.

“The perfect setting”

We stayed two nights at the River House for our daughter's wedding at the end of May. It's position on the River Dee couldn't have been more perfect and the house itself generously proportioned, welcoming and very very well equipped. The state of the art kitchen was spacious and ideal for entertaining, opening out onto a lovely cottage garden. The owners attention to detail and thoughtful touches were appreciated.

“The house was a perfect haven...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Recently returned to the US from a ten day stay at The River House. We were visiting my family in the Chester area and the house was a perfect haven to retreat to each day. Very close to the city but away from the hustle and bustle. The River was tranquil at all times, even on busy weekends and we were never troubled by noise. There was food and entertainment close by for all ages and to please every taste....and, all within walking distance. A well appointed playground in Grosvenor Park, directly behind the house kept the four year old happy at all times. The house itself is really charming and well equipped to make vacation life easy. The owners were always cheerfully available to deal with questions or concerns and we felt well taken care of.
We would definitely recommend this property and hope to be returning next year.
