“The most perfect place in Chester”
Reviewed 14 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The River House is absolutely wonderful! The décor is really lovely and the location is perfect.

The living room at the front of the house overlooks the River Dee. There are a number of water birds, some rowers, and the occasional tourist boat to watch. The large, modern, and well-equipped kitchen has a patio, and beyond that is Grosvenor Park. From the master bedroom upstairs, you can see the Queen’s Park pedestrian bridge which is a hundred steps from the house. Across the bridge is a nice neighborhood for walking, as well as the Meadows, a large grassland bordering the Dee with a circular path. The other two bedrooms upstairs are spacious and airy, and decorated just as beautifully as the rest of the house. There are no bathrooms downstairs, but two upstairs—one with a bathtub/shower and the other with a shower. You have to bring your own bar soap and shampoo.

We walked from the Chester train station to the River House--in fact we walked everywhere in Chester. It's very easy to get around. The neighborhood along the river was extremely quiet (we were there in early May). There were hardly any cars and no noise from anywhere.

We loved everything about the River House--but especially the location and how really comfortable it was. We're two, fit Americans in our mid-50s. We walked downtown to grocery stores for food--again, an easy stroll. The stairs are British-steep, but that's about all we can say even remotely negative. We were in the middle, not the section on the far left as you look at the photo.

It's a beautiful property in an incredibly quiet and lovely spot; easy to access and with genial, helpful, and welcoming hosts. We were smitten, and we'll never stay anywhere else!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at the River House. It's such a lovely spot to explore Chester and the surrounding area. We hope we made it a lovely place to come home to every day and enjoy the peace and quiet that descends in the evening.
I know you really explored the surrounding area and I really hope you come back again to do some more research. It was lovely to meet you both. Thank you for your visit and your lovely comments.
Kind regards

“Family celebration”
Reviewed 19 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Certainly recommend 7 The Groves, excellent facilities and well placed for everything you need to do and see around Chester.
The accommodation was superb, everything we needed within the house. 6 if us stayed for a week and found it very comfortable. We entertain friends in the spacious kitchen and managed a full Sunday lunch with all the required equipment.
We would certainly return our host Melanie was a delight to deal with and made us very welcome.
