Let me first start this what I am sure will be a long review by explaining that all reviews I have ever left on tripadvisor for all destinations I have visited have been totally accurate and true. I use tripadvisor to help me and also to help others. Ok, this is the first negative review I have ever left and...

The Holly House is in blossom - and not only because it’s spring. We give some credit to your really long review (boring to details at some points) as a TA community member with a few contributions. However, when we met you we tought we were welcoming a Gentleman. Now, we feel you’re taking a personal revenge with your nit-picking...

After nearly thirty years of travelling for business and staying in hotels and B&Bs around the country, this is the first time I've felt so motivated to warn people off somewhere. I was charged £70 for single occupancy of a very crummy double room for one night. The owners clearly don't have a realistic idea about how their guest house...

This is the most unfair, defamatory review we've ever seen.WeI even contacted TA to stop such people freely leaving silly reviews on a TA site without consequences. This person booked in 2 weeks prior to his arrival asking for a DOUBLE room, without mentioning it would be single occupancy. At the time of making the reservation, he also paid for...

Have to agree with many of the other reviews, Mercedes is so pleasant and unassuming you would enjoy your stay if it was in a cardboard box ! Definitely not a cardboard box of course, very nice breakfast, comfortable room with lots of little extras provided. Very handy for walk or regular 53 bus to centre. Easy parking. Just for...

We stayed last weekend and enjoyed our stay. We were in the annex which was a little fresh, but nice enough once we got the heaters fired up. Mercedes is a friendly and helpful hostess, and the little touches like homemade preserves etc mean we will return.

We stayed her for a night over in Chester last weekend. We had the Annex and our friends the upstairs double. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, the standout memory here is the fantastic service provided by the lovely Mercedes. She was fantastic from the start, We will definitely be returning.

My son and I stayed here when visiting Chester last month and had the annex which was perfect for us. It only takes about 15 minutes to walk into the centre of Chester and the lovely couple that run this guesthouse recommended a place to eat nearby on the Friday night which was excellent. Holly House is comfortable and the...

“The annex was ideal in particular for us because we didn't want to disturb everyone else staying at the house by coming back late from a night out! It can fit up to 3 people so a good idea for a group.”
