“Wonderful and memorable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

My husband and I stayed one night at Edgar House in early May, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Mike is a wonderful attentive host, the room was lovely and spacious with a fabulous view of the river Dee. The breakfast was superb! Many thanks and we will definitely come back.

We have stayed in Chester two nights a month for the past 5 months with just one more trip remaining before we have concluded the reason for our trips. How is it one always discovers the best things (Edgar House hotel)at the last minute ! Lavish decadence appears to be the best way to describe it, but this is tempered with charming personal touches from the hosts Mike and Tim whom also pay astonishing attention to detail ! It would be folly not to stay here, be warned book early.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here on the 26th April for my birthday we had been recommended this by a work colleague. This is the best hotel we have stayed in and will definitely be returning some time this year.

The room veiw was amazing, the extra details of having the bed higher so you could see the river was a great touch. The bathroom was huge and had a heated mirror so it didnt steam up. When i arrived my boyfriend had ordered a bottle of wine to the room which was already in there. I even had a birthday card waiting for me off the owners also which again was a great surprise.

We also ate here for lunch and breakfast and again could not fault the food or the service.

If you stay in Chester this is a must

Celebrated a notable birthday at Edgar House with friends on the 3rd May. The evening was perfect thanks to the amazing location and the hosts Tim & Mike's attention to detail and friendly welcome. Everything about the place is luxurious, the rooms are a real treat, the staff friendly & professional and the food (all vegetarian for this event) amazing.
Thanks Tim, Mike & all the staff for a fabulous evening.

What a beautiful hidden gem of a hotel. It is evident a lot of time and thought has been put into this hotel. The owners are exceedingly friendly and welcoming, the cleanliness of the hotel was excellent and the freshly cooked breakfast one of the best I have eaten. A 5* hotel with a personal service

My best friend and I have just stayed at this hotel and I wanted everyone to know what a beautiful place this is. The attention to detail and the furnishings is clear from the moment you walk in.
We were greeted by the owner who took us to our riverside room and showed us how to work all the things in the room, he then called a taxi for us to get to the races nothing seemed too much trouble. If you looking for a boutique hotel with a bit of edge this is the place to go. The breakfast in the morning was also first class and I will definitely go back here again.

I was only able to stay for one night, but the experience was perfect. A beautiful hotel that has clearly been thought through to the tiniest detail, with great care and attention, so that every guest feels personally cared for and looked after. The hosts Tim and Mike made sure every guest had a personal welcome and were unobtrusive but always available when needed. It's easy to see that they genuinely care that each guest enjoys their stay. The rooms are luxuriously comfortable, the breakfasts are decadent and the river view is superb. Being right on the ancient Roman wall around Chester it's also a perfect place to explore the city from.
I was lucky enough to have a river-view room (the bed is raised so that you can even enjoy the view as you wake up!) with balcony - book this if you possibly can!
Emir

Room Tip: Book a river-view room with balcony if you can, but every room I saw was lavishly comfortable.
