We stayed at the beginning of December for one night to do some Christmas shopping. Everything about this little boutique hotels has style and attention to detail. Tim and Mike are very welcoming and show you around the hotel and make you feel at home. Our room was fab and the honesty bar idea was great! We will be back! :)

My husband and I recently spent a night at Edgar House whilst Christmas shopping in Chester.
We have stayed in Chester many times previously but would not stay anywhere else other than at Edgar House if we visit again.
Tim and Mike were perfect hosts, very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them.
The attention to detail at the hotel was perfect and the cooked breakfast was superb.
Our room was immaculate and the location of the hotel was ideal for shopping.
We highly recommend this hotel to others and will return soon.

This October (2013) we visited Cheshire, North Wales, and Derbyshire and spent four nights at the Edgar House in Chester and loved it! Not only is it right on the City Wall and the River Dee, but there are many good and unstuffy restaurants and pubs within a few blocks as well as the center of Chester, a picture perfect town with all the interesting architecture and shops. Of course they serve a great breakfast and lunch there if it works with you schedule. Tim and Mike, the owners, couldn't be better hosts--you could tell that would be the case when we made the reservations. Interiors are brand new. The rooms are well decorated and comfortable and have all the latest television and wireless equipment and connections. The bathrooms are really handsome, too. Each room is unique. Ours had a balcony overlooking the river and the weir and we left the French doors open at night so we could hear the river. Their charming bar available to guests was in an antique telephone booth. If you are driving it has the ultimate luxury--a large parking lot right at the back of the building which is the hotel entrance. It was only about 45 minutes from the Manchester Airport. After a long day of exploring we knew we could cross the bridge, turn a corner, pull right in and walk to a nearby restaurant. Tim and Mike were available with advice and good conversation any time we needed it. This is a new venture for them and they are doing a great job. We must also mention our guide in Chester, Tom Jones. We told him we were interested in architecture and in one morning he showed us the whole town--don't miss the Church of St. John the Baptist. This was one of our best trips ever even though it only lasted five days. We think staying at Edgar House had a lot to do with that.

Room Tip: Many but not all of the rooms have a river view so if that is important be sure to ask. Only some r...

This was a surprise break for our Wedding Anniversary - and what a surprise!! It is everything the reviews say so i won't repeat all the detail but simply say just go try it for yourself - we just can't imagine you won't love the whole experience. Mike and Tim are so welcoming and always on hand to make sure you get the best out of Edgar House, which itself is an absolute gem. We certainly hope to visit again, perhaps in summer when we can take advantage of the garden and the balcony. The benefit of our winter visit though was that after exploring Chester, we were able to return to Edgar House and relax in front of a blazing log fire in a gorgeous sitting room with the Christmas tree lights twinkling and to top it off -enjoy a yummy afternoon tea in there - absolute bliss. So thank you Mike and Tim for a wonderful stay in a wonderful house - you and it are ace.

Thank you to Mike & Tim for an amazing stay at Edgar House. This was my belated birthday treat and what a treat it was. Couldn't fault the service from you both and quality of the rooms and hotel overall. The photographs on the website do not do it justice! The atmosphere created is so special.

A special thank you for guiding us over the phone to the hotel when we got a little lost in the rain, after being left by a very unhelpful taxi driver.

A little gem that we really wish we could keep a secret! We look forward to visiting in 2014!
