Stayed at the Edgar House for just one night for my boyfriends birthday. The hotel is ideally located close to town and the river with lots of restaurants close by. The owners Mike and Tim couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. Upon arrival we were shown around the lovely rooms, including lounges (one of which doubles as a private cinema!) and the restaurant.
We were in the Junior Suite which was absolutely beautiful. It included the bedroom with a beautiful copper bath, large double bed, TV, a bathroom with 'his and hers' sinks, underfloor heating and also a rainfall shower, as well as the living room with huge tv. The TV itself had freeview and also access to bbc Iplayer and ITV player as well as unlimited films on LoveFilm. Every detail had been thought of from a hairdryer to the Molton Brown toiletries!
As we were unsure of where to eat Mike recommended a few restaurants and was happy to book us a table with no hesitation. As it was my boyfriends birthday he brought us a complimentary glass of champagne each!
The only negative we had from this hotel was the fact we had to leave! I can not recommend Edgar House enough and wouldn't hesitate to book again!
Thank you Mike and Tim for such a lovely stay, we will definitely be back very soon!

After a 24 hour trip from Australia, Edgar House was an ideal place to relax and revive. It was wonderfully quiet and the bed was super comfy. The room was luxurious and I loved Mike and Tim's attention to detail. Breakfast was delightful.

I stayed for just one night but wished it could have been longer. The hotel is in a perfect location in the heart of the city and on the river. All of Chester's tourist attractions are within minutes walk. Tim and Mike (the owners) have gone out of their way to provide simply stunning accommodations that easily compare to a 5 star hotel. The rooms are more than generous in size and the bathrooms are simply stunning. I had a couple of meals at the hotel and the menu and quality of food is excellent. This is a great addition to a beautiful city.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear to overlook the river. There is a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the...

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying three nights at the Edgar House. It was our first visit to Chester, and we could not have stayed at a better place. From the warm welcome we received upon arrival to our departure. It was a true delight. Our room was large and tastefully furnished with a balcony overlooking the City Walls and the river. There is a true attention to detail. The owners were most helpful in providing information and suggestions on things to see and restaurants. Breakfasts were great. We look forward to returning to Chester in the future, and we hope to be able to stay at Edgar House.

Room Tip: The rooms with balcony are great.

We stayed for three nights and really enjoyed it. The hotel has been beautifully refurbished with a number of quirky touches. Our room overlookng the river was luxurious - the only dowside are the rather ugly buildings across the river but there is not much that can be done about that! The owners were extremely pleasant without being overbearing. Breakfast is extra but worth it - the food was excellent. All in all, the hotel is quite pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

I booked a two night stay here for my parents, for my dad's 70th and their 40th wedding anniversary. Firstly, after emailing the hotel to check some requirements I found Mike, one of the owners to be very helpful. He made some great suggestions and even arranged to post my parents a voucher for their stay, confirming it was a present from me, which was a lovely surprise way of presenting them with the gift. I received an email from Mike to confirm my parents had arrived and chekced in and another to let me know when they checked out. So from my perspective a very considerate and professional operation.

The accommodation - Having spoken to my mom she can't stop raving about the accommodation and the treatment they received. Beautifully appointed rooms, a fantastic location/views across the river and great service, with lots of lovely touches (even down to daily printed breakfast menus with interesting facts about each day). The owners were very charming and attentive, nothing was too much trouble and helped make a great weekend away that much more special.

Definitely recommended for anyone seeking accommodation with a touch of style, with owners who care about their guests.

Thank you Tim and Mike.
