We felt that the Rowland House had enough features to justify an Excellent rating. The bedroom was relatively large and the bathroom was easily the largest among the B&B's where we stayed for two weeks in the UK. The room was quiet, the bed was comfortable, and the WiFi worked fine. The proprietor, Beryl, was very forthcoming with advice on...

Stayed here the night before the Chester Marathon. Beryl went out of her way to help us, making us an early breakfast, asking if we wanted anything special to eat and checking that we knew how to get to the start. Room was spacious and clean. Just 10 mins walk from city centre. Would definitely stay again.

Just returned from our second stay and are looking forward to returning again soon. Lots of special touches makes Beryl's guest house a home from home. Spotless, comfortable and a great breakfast all within a short stroll from the centre of Chester. Wi-Fi and parking a bonus.

Beryl is a lovely, kind and caring host. Our room was pleasant, bed extremely comfy, ensuite beautifully clean and spacious and breakfast excellent. What more do you need? Except a host who can give you heaps of information, is interested in you and your experiences and a genuine desire to be welcoming. Well done Beryl, you made our stay great!

Spent one night at Rowland House during our journey to England, much appreciated it. Beryl made us feel comfortable even if we arrived earlier than expected. B&B is located just few minutes walk from the city centre. Our room made us feel like at home, we slept so well that missed the morning clock.
