Just short walk from the city centre, location very quiet and peaceful with a canal view. Ken our host was very helpful with suggestions on where to go etc. The apartment was cosy and clean, the bed very comfortable. The room had everything we needed including a breakfast basket which we loved and a little balcony to sit outside where we saw plenty of wildlife. If we ever visit Chester again we would love to stay here.

Chester city centre a short walk away and good local bar at the Telford Warehouse.
Accommodation next to the canal and access out of the city by car easy. A great location to explore the Wirral and Cheshire.

Nestled on the canal side, this is the perfect place for a romantic getaway -although the kitchen area is tiny it is perfectly adequate and stocked with a variety of tasty goodies!
Was bliss sitting out on the patio in the evening sipping Pimms, whilst watching the ducks and admiring the water tower on the city walls.
Close to the city centre, which is just a short walk along the towpath, making this ideally located for shopping, nightlife, historical visits or a short train ride to Wales.
Highly recommended, will be returning!

Perfect accommodation, perfectly situated on the canal with lovely views. Breakfast basket is superb with lots of choice. Stayed here for three nights with my husband and we had a fantastic break. Ken gave us lots of useful information which helped us to plan our visit and was welcoming and friendly whilst leaving us with complete privacy. Once there you don't need the car as everything is on the doorstep. It really is a little gem, quirky and different in the best way.

Chester itself is a wonderful city, and if you are going, I recommend Chester Canal View. It is a self contained room with en-suite and kitchenette, with a beautiful view over the canal: there is a decking where you can sit and relax. We loved the breakfast hamper. The bed is possibly the most comfortable we have slept on, in many years of staying in different rentals, and bed- and- breakfasts. The owner, Ken, who lives upstairs, is extremely helpful, always contactable by text if there is a problem, (which there wasn't) or if you need more breakfast supplies. He kindly picked us up and dropped us back at the railway station. He leaves plenty of information about the property, places of interest, directions to the local shops, places you might like to visit etc.
Opposite to the property is more canal, locks, boatyard, canal side seating and walking and a busy local pub. You can access the historic walls 50 yards from the door. Chester is a lovely city, old and new. Very pedestrian friendly, with excellent public transport. All in all, we had a lovely stay, and would definitely return.

We've just returned from Chester staying at Canal View. A beautiful City full of charm, Tudor buildings and a must see in our opinion. The apartment was lovely and compact and our host, Ken, couldn't do enough for us. The welcome breakfast basket was amazing with everything one could want in it. The fridge was also well stocked. The little balcony was an added bonus with decking but, unfortunately because of the weather, we couldn't take advantage of it! It was very peaceful and quiet. We slept like logs in the lovely king size bed & the en suite bathroom had the best shower unit ever. We will certainly be back.

We booked Chester Canal View for 2 nights for our Wedding Anniversary. A bit tricky to find but well worth the effort. We saw a photograph of its location and it didn't disappoint. Room first class with everything you need, small kitchen, good shower and comfy bed. Balcony overlooking canal basin lovely view. Ken very helpful even leaving bottle of bubbly and a card for our Anniversary lovely gesture. We visited Telford Warehouse pub just across the canal good meals and received free bottle of wine with Ken's card.
