Awesome place and great friendly people
Great hotel and located on a beautiful part of the river. Highly recommended

Lovely but misleading
Really lovely rooms, very modern, spacious and clean. Nice restaurant/breakfast area. The one downside which was disappointing is that I don’t even think there are rooms which overlook the water. I understand that on the website it states that they can’t guarantee water views but as far as I could see, all the rooms were directly overlooking the car park, and were actually in the car park. We had cars park directly outside of our window within touching distance which is all you can see. Yes the hotel is very close to the water as you can walk to it in less that 20 seconds, but it’s all blocked by the restaurant and car park from the rooms. Disappointing that this isn’t more clearly stated. The main photos of the hotel show the lovely rooms overlooking the water which is slightly false advertising. Overall though, the staff were lovely, breakfast was good, reasonably priced and very close to Chester centre.

Perfect break in stylish accommodation
Stylish clean and comfortable rooms, in a quiet courtyard opposite the pub on the river, where reception and breakfast is. Everything went perfectly. Excellent cooked breakfast and location is only 5 mins walk from Chester centre
