The Boathouse & Riverside Rooms
Could be great but isn’t.
Room. 34 degrees no a/c -small window opens by 2 inchs -very very uncomfortable, like an oven, avoid ground floor in summer Loo seat broken. Breakfast. Example- toast served in cereal bowl and not toasted, small tea pot served with 5 tea bags in, - so strong undrinkable, Dinner. Example. Stale burger bun - rock hard, 5 green chips in one portion, Multiple Chipped cups Staff repeatedly say no worries guys. !

The Boathouse is the top place to stay in Chester.
Excellent location by the River Dee. Would highly recommend the Boathouse and the accommodation. The pub is vibrant with good food and atmosphere. Lovely breakfast too.
