“Everything You Could Dream Of!”
Reviewed 27 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I booked this house for a special birthday for my mum.  Originally from Chester, she was over the moon when she saw the location. She said it’s where she always dreamed of living when she was little. The River House didn’t disappoint. It’s so comfortable and welcoming, we relaxed immediately. You can tell the owner really cares with little touches like the welcome pack with tea, coffee, bread and butter, to get your break off to an easy start. My mum loved the fresh roses.
It’s by the river but only a few minutes walk into town. So we never used the car.  My little sister loved going out to feed the ducks. Mum could be found every morning with a cup of tea on the front bench watching the world go by on the river and waving at the rowers. It was a magical time for us as a family and we can’t wait to come back. Thank you Melanie!

“Superb place to stay!”
Reviewed 9 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Absolutely excellent. The riverside location is superb and the accommodation couldn't be better, very comfortable and warm. We arrived on Jan 1 and were delighted to find Christmas decorations in the living room. The house is a short walk away from the centre of town and with a number of excellent places to eat and drink within easy reach. Hosts were extremely helpful. Will certainly stay again when we're back this way.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 22 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

What a wonderful find.
Could not fault this rental. It was everything it said plus much more. The wecome food basket and fresh flowers were a wonderful touch. The house feels like a home and has every thing that is needed.
It was spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable and very convenient for the town or river walks.
Would defiantly stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending this rental.

“Fabulous house and location”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The house is perfectly set. The River Dee as the view and a lovely walk into Chester. The house was warm, clean and inviting.
The extra touches made the stay that little bit more special. Coffee, tea and milk, flowers, the heating already for our arrival.
The kitchen was the hub of out stay.
Immaculate.

“Lovely house in a perfect location”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was our second stay in the River House. The first was with friends and this time we took our 9 year old twin granddaughters. The house was as well equipped and comfortable as the first visit some four years ago and the girls loved it. It is ideally situated in a quiet spot next to the river but within a few minutes walk of the town centre.

Lovely to have you back again, Kate. Children love the River House. They have the little courtyard garden to play in and the fascination of the ducks and the boats on the river. It's a good place to relax with children as everything is within easy walking, so you don't need a car.
Thank you for your visit and for looking after the house so nicely for us.
Hope to host you and your family again in the not too distant future.
Kind regards

We stayed at the river apartment for the weekend and it was perfect! Beautifully decorated, very clean and perfectly situated with a beautiful view of the river Dee.

The owner was easy to contact and very helpful during the booking process.

I would highly recommend this accommodation and will definitely be booking again!
