“A day at the races and a stay at the cottage with friends for a great weekend”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Stayed here over the weekend with some friends. It was a two night stay as we were going to Chester Races. The location is perfect with permit parking outside. It is also just half a mile from the station too. Had a great weekend and it was wonderfully clean with lots of extra touches from a welcome hamper to shampoo and a little sewing kit!! It is on three floors with the the top floor having a twin bedded room with en suite. The first floor had a double room and a single room with a family bathroom. All tastefully decorated and to a very high standard. Also close to the town so once there we didnt use the car at all. Lovely bars and restaurants locally too. Would definitely book again.

“Ideal location for mini-break in Chester”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

An ideal location for a mini-break in Chester, being an easy short walk from both the station and city centre. Douglas cottage was extremely clean, full of character and very comfortable. The thoughtful touches from the owners made our stay one of the best.

“Wonderful place to stay, lives up to all the website promises and more.”
Reviewed 12 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We all loved our stay at Douglas House, the cottage had a lovely homely atmosphere. The furnishings were high quality and comfortable and the kitchen and bathrooms hi-tech and quality. Cleanliness at this cottage was of the highest standard. A good deal of thought seems to have gone into the guests comfort when organising this property and also being sympathetic to the cottage. We had the advantage of being central for sight-seeing, shops, restaurants etc., but the area was quiet and peaceful. The cherry on the cake for us was the many small welcoming touches from the owners, lovely. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone, l'd say it was worthy of a five star rating.
