Chester itself is a wonderful city, and if you are going, I recommend Chester Canal View. It is a self contained room with en-suite and kitchenette, with a beautiful view over the canal: there is a decking where you can sit and relax. We loved the breakfast hamper. The bed is possibly the most comfortable we have slept on, in many years of staying in different rentals, and bed- and- breakfasts. The owner, Ken, who lives upstairs, is extremely helpful, always contactable by text if there is a problem, (which there wasn't) or if you need more breakfast supplies. He kindly picked us up and dropped us back at the railway station. He leaves plenty of information about the property, places of interest, directions to the local shops, places you might like to visit etc.
Opposite to the property is more canal, locks, boatyard, canal side seating and walking and a busy local pub. You can access the historic walls 50 yards from the door. Chester is a lovely city, old and new. Very pedestrian friendly, with excellent public transport. All in all, we had a lovely stay, and would definitely return.
We've just returned from Chester staying at Canal View. A beautiful City full of charm, Tudor buildings and a must see in our opinion. The apartment was lovely and compact and our host, Ken, couldn't do enough for us. The welcome breakfast basket was amazing with everything one could want in it. The fridge was also well stocked. The little balcony was an added bonus with decking but, unfortunately because of the weather, we couldn't take advantage of it! It was very peaceful and quiet. We slept like logs in the lovely king size bed & the en suite bathroom had the best shower unit ever. We will certainly be back.
We booked Chester Canal View for 2 nights for our Wedding Anniversary. A bit tricky to find but well worth the effort. We saw a photograph of its location and it didn't disappoint. Room first class with everything you need, small kitchen, good shower and comfy bed. Balcony overlooking canal basin lovely view. Ken very helpful even leaving bottle of bubbly and a card for our Anniversary lovely gesture. We visited Telford Warehouse pub just across the canal good meals and received free bottle of wine with Ken's card.
Just got back from a one night stay here for my 40th birthday. To echo previous reviews there is nothing not to like about this place. Private parking, en suite facilities, packed hamper, walking distance into Chester plus Ken left me a birthday gift and card which added a lovely personal touch you'd be hard pressed to get elsewhere. Thanks Ken, would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
Fantastic location very close to the canal and city walls. Just a short stroll away is the city centre and also Chester race course. This bijou apartment has a comfortable double bed, small kitchenette and a great shower, The weather during our stay was unseasonably warm allowing us to take advantage of the balcony area. Ducks and swans were enjoying bobbing around on the canal and we could watch the people walking around the wall. Its such a tranquil area its hard to believe that its so close to the railway. Just over the road you will find yourself on the canal footpath and the adventurous can walk along the 16 mile route to Ellesmere port. If instead you head off to the right a very short walk will find you at the foot of the city walls. Take a walk up the steps and turning left at the top will take you to the city centre. If you turn right you will soon find yourself at the race course. A two mile circuit of the walls is to be recommended,Telford's Warehouse is close by on the canal and is a great bar and restaurant. We had a fantastic meal here for my birthday thanks to our host Ken recommending it to us. As well as being a fantastic restaurant and bar (with a wide range of beers and other alcoholic beverages), it is also an awesome live music venue with something on every night,
Ken lives above the apartment and gave us a very warm welcome and provided us with lots of help and advice. The apartment is in a gated community and the neighbours we met were all very friendly too, It was great having somewhere safe and close to park our car and we didn't have to use it at all during our stay as everything was so close by. We will definitely be staying here again and cannot thank Ken enough for our wonderful stay. The surprise basket of goodies that he gave me for my birthday was so lovely, A breakfast basket that he provides for your stay is full of lovely goodies too. . .
