Stayed here with my girlfriend for an extended weekend to experience Chester and its zoo. The owner greeted us with a warm welcome, kindly showed us to our room and made us feel quite at home. The fried breakfast was on point but was a little too big for my girlfriend, so I finished off the rest of hers too (no need to waste such delicious food). The walk into the city is an easy 20mins, over the railway, and there are plenty of eateries/bars closer along Faulkner street.
Also, the lodge does seem to have a hint of a lavender smell which is rather calming.

Room Tip: Rooms are up a flight of stairs and there isn't a lift, so no wheelchair access.

Not easy to park in the rather limited area available, with a narrow entrance and other cars already occupying most of the space.
The hostess was charming and showed us to our room at the front on the first floor. Unfortunately it had been one of the strange hot and muggy days in September and we needed to have the windows open which, of course, meant that we had to endure all the traffic noise from Hoole Road, the main road into Chester.
The room was clean and tidy, but rather crowded with a double bed and a single bed and a wardrobe. The room had a tiny but clean and functional en-suite but really felt a bit cramped and would have benefited from a larger, full size double bed and the removal of the single bed, though despite its size the double was comfortable enough.
I do feel that it is now important that bedrooms have a TV with at least Freeview reception and that the unit is large enough to be clearly seen from across a normal sized room, the old PC monitor size TV just isn't adequate, especially for some of us older folk!
Breakfast, unfortunately the Breakfast room was rather like the bedroom, a bit cramped.
The choice was good with a full English, Scrambled egg and Smoked salmon or a help yourself from the sideboard choice.
Again, for me it's the little touches that would make a difference. It would be good to have a small dish of butter with a choice of Flora (or similar) and a pot or small bowl of one or two jams and Marmalade, rather than the awful catering packs that seem to adorn the table nowadays.
If you're paying a reasonably fair price I believe you should be able to expect a reasonably comfortable stay with all the little touches that make the stay worth remembering, recommending and even wanting to stay again.
Lavender Lodge was OK but not better than anywhere else in a way that made a difference.

As I said at the beginning and would like to repeat again: Our Hostess Frederika was charming. She also recommended an excellent Chinese Restaurant (The Shanghai) just down the road.

Stayed at the Lavender Lodge after booking on line. Made to feel very welcome by Fredrika upon arrival and must say the room was very comfortable with lots of nice little touches. Very close to some nice bars, shops and restaurants or a 10 minute walk into Chester. We ate two nights at the Hollows in Faulkner Street which was lovely. All in all a great trip made special by such lovely accomodation.

Room Tip: We stayed in a front room on the road side but there are garden rooms that looked very nice.

We were a little apprehensive on being shown into our room which faced the busy main road into Chester. However when the two windows were shut the double glazing really dulled the traffic noise . We had a triple room which was very clean and comfortable, a tad expensive for 2 but would have been excellent value for 3 at £100 B and B. There were nice extra touches in the bedroom and compact shower room which we appreciated- wipes and cookies etc. Breakfast was good with quality ingredients and fresh berries. It was a 15 minute walk to the station with Chester a further 5 mins away and there were several good restaurants in Hoole for the evenings especially The Faulkner. Liverpool was only 45 minutes by train and was a great destination on a rainy day.

Room Tip: Rooms at rear of property are quieter

I have been to Chester many times before but by a mile this has been the BEST B&B in Chester. You get a very nice welcome, very nice bedroom with a shower which are kept pristine clean. You also get tea & coffee facilities. Each and every morning you get a huge breakfast.
You are about a mile from the city centre and maybe 1/2 mile to the train along with a excellent bus service running roughly every 10/15 minutes or so.
I would recommend the Lavender Lodge to my family and friends.
10/10 goes out to Frederika and her staff
