We stayed Saturday night as we were attending a function at Chester Racecourse. OMG this place is excellent, from the staff, the rooms and hospitality. It ranks as the best hotel we have ever stayed in and we include hotels abroad. There were no negatives at all...next time we will book a meal in the restaurant as I am sure... More

Top marks to Edgar House, a wonderful boutique hotel positioned right at the Roman walls of Chester, overlooking the river Dee. From the glass of "fizz" offered on arrival in one of the quirky lounge rooms, to the friendly, attentive staff who make sure that your every need is catered to. The rooms are spacious, modern and well appointed, and... More

Attention to detail in the rooms was phenomenal. Beautiful, quirky, very clean. Breakfasts best I have ever had. Food in evening good ..found menus slightly limited and food a little pretentious but at the same time lacked seasoning. The cheese board was superb. Do not have petit fours as they were bland, not petit fours and a waste of money.... More

Dear Sue Many thanks indeed for your very lovely review. I'm very sorry indeed about the petit fours, I will speak with Chef, and see if there's something we can do there. Certainly if it had been mentioned in the restaurant at the time, we would have taken them off your bill if you hadn't been satisfied, not a problem... More

Nothing was too much for the staff. A glass of fizz on arrival was a nice surprise and set the tone for the welcome from the team. Our room was very well appointed with a spacious bathroom. Overall, the experience matched the description on their web page and previous guests' reviews.

Every rooms is different. It's like walking into a private home. Small breakfast lounge where breakfast is prepared a la carte. Every room gets a parking space assigned which is great if you come by car because parking is not easy to find in this small village. Extremely nice hosts. We booked though a Virtuoso agency and loved the benefits.
