Oasis of tranquility
Charming, tranquil setting. Excellent all round. Dinner at the restaurant completed the experience. My only regret? It was a single night stopover.

Great Hotel. Perfect Location
We stayed in a lovely recently refurbished room adjacent to the car park. It was warm, cosy and nicely decorated. All staff were vey freindly and proffesional. Great food and nice relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast was delicious. Its an ideal location. Free parking is essential when visiting Chester. The Boathouse is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Chester.

8/10 Very good

Enjoyed stay
Good stay, room clean and powerful hot shower. I did find the bed too hard though and come the morning it was quite noisy with deliveries in the car park and you could hear other rooms taps/showers. The cooked to order breakfast was nice with view out to the river. Free parking and only 10 min walk to the centre.
