stayed for a couple of nights 23 and 24 july. spur of the moment thing and was mightily impressed with the service. the room was nice with some nice touches, robes are supplied as well as tea/coffee facilities and a decanter of sherry. as with old houses it is a bit quirky and the floor in our room was suitably wonky!!! breakfast was plentiful with a choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, juices and coffee which were there to help yourself to then in addition there was the full english or a choice of cooked breakfast of your choice.
a nice basket of toast and jams will just about finish the brekkie off nicely.
as mentioned in other reviews there is an honesty bar, in the form of a fridge stocked with wines and beers (in the same room used for breakfast) , just place your money in the box. there is a nice lounge with plenty of sofas and a selection of books.
the gardens are very pleasant with various places to sit and relax. a large lawned area and patio areas. when we came back from having a dinner on saturday evening the chimenea was lit as well as the tall gaslight lanterns in the garden. nice to sit and relax in the evening next to the chimenea. there is also a hot tub in the garden (used it on saturday afternoon after trekking around the shops of chester), there is also a sauna in the log cabin next to the hot tub as well as some gym equipment.
there is also wireless broadband at no extra charge which we managed to connect to even though we were in the top room and the router is in the lounge.
all in all a great place to stay and not far from the centre of chester.
many thanks to our host, SAM.
