“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

We decided on a short break to Chester this year and had heard from a friend how good this place was.

We weren't disappointed.

Edgar House is excellent and as good a place to stay as you will find.

A little tricky to find but once there the welcome was excellent. We both had a drink as they were finalising our room.

Lovely decor, warm inside and all staff polite, helpful and friendly. This is the standard that should be attained at all hotels.

The room was a lovely size and overlooking the river. Fresh iced filtered water and lovely filtered coffee and tea in the room.

We were shown finer details in the room by the manager and it was nice time was taken to do this.

An honesty bar that we didn't use downstairs.

We chose not to eat here as the food menu looked too fancy it it did smell lovely and I would imagine it would have been excellent. We also wanted to get out and about in Chester.

It's ideally situated on the wall and a nice walk into town.

The bed, duvet and pillows were great and I am funny with these normally. It was very warm through the night though.

Heated floor in the shower room, Molton Brown
accessories in the shower, great. Decor in the room lovely too.

You could also eat jelly beans and fruit if you wanted.

Little lights by the room key door area were a nice touch and the place was quiet, helping you sleep.

It isn't cheap to stay here but you get what you pay for and this is as good a place as we have stayed at and would love to return should we end up in this neck of the woods again.

Well done to the owner and staff. A great place to stay.

Beautiful small and personal hotel, friendly and professional staff. Well maintained, clean and gorgeous rooms, elegant decor and wonderful views of the river, truly stunning location! Had scones and champagne on arrival, a beautiful 3 course dinner and fabulous breakfast, was faultless. Could park in allocated space well past check out time which allowed us time for a good walk around historic Chester walls and the shops before leaving.

Absolutely loved staying here with my partner on New Years Eve 2016. We received a polite call the day before arrival checking on our requirements, we had our own car parking space when we arrived, the staff were inviting and polite, our room was stunning (we had a standing tub and a open shower, along with a beautiful large bed), lovely views, close to the centre, stunning atmosphere and delicious food. We partook in a 7 course taster menu, the chief did an amazing job with my personal favourite being the beef dish. The waitress was very accommodating and all the guests we spoke to were friendly. Thank you all!

Room Tip: Definitely eat here!

The most comfortable and stylish hotel in a perfect location. All the "big things" are amazing and the "little things", that make all the difference are truly outstanding; the attention to detail throughout borders on the forensic. Dining within Edgar House at Twenty 2 is a wonderful experience we sampled both the a la carte and tasting menu with accompanying flight of wines and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The breakfasts taken in the same dining room are the best we have ever been served. Thank you to all the staff for making our city break in Chester such an enjoyable experience.

Room Tip: Our deluxe room had a river view that could be enjoyed from the specially designed elevated bed, see...

The other reviews are correct; this place is very special indeed. The actual hotel is in a fantastic location and all the extras such as named complimentary parking; champagne and truffles on arrival and the most gorgeous room help! It's the service and team though that make this hotel stand head and shoulders above other similar 5 star type establishments. Special thanks to Ruben and Amy at check in/out. Put simply the best hotel I've stayed in..in the world. Was a great 1st wedding anniversary we will return.

Amazing location, decor. Private parking out the back which is unusual for city centre. Stunning in the summer as you can take advantage of the beautiful private garden, great views, willow trees and comfy seating. Owners are professional and attentive and. Art naturally welcoming. Had lunch and afternoon tea there several times as well as pre dinner drinks. Love this place.

From the moment we arrived to find our Surname outside in our reserved parking place we knew we had found somewhere special. We were greeted with a smile and made to feel at home straight away. We were early but didn't have to wait very long for the room so we had Tea & Scones. The scones were freshly cooked and delicious.

We stayed in the Junior Suite which was also a delight with everything you need for a relaxing stay. We had an evening meal which had the tastebuds dancing and the breakfast was divine.

Every member of Staff was polite courteous and went out of their way to make sure our stay was all we wanted. Can the Management give them a big thanks from us.

I would recommend anyone to stay here. Cant wait till we go back :)

Truly a hidden gem.
