A really great place, lovely newly constructed rooms, great food and a great view of the river from the bar. Really good service although I missed the check in desk as tucked away.The only issue was sleep quality which management are addressing currently

The property is located just a short scenic walk from Chester Centre and next to the river which was beautiful in a morning to sit by and watch people rowing and the ducks. The breakfast menu is very plentiful and you can even swap things...More

About
Description
The Boathouse is a unique pub with 21 riverside bedrooms perfectly situated right on the river Dee in Chester. In 2015 we added Chester's first 'floating beer garden' to our already scenic outside terrace More which has kept The Boathouse evolving and adding a real wow factor. We are proud to serve JW Lees beer & also offer a selection of fine wines from around the world served by the glass or bottle. Our Sunday roast has the reputation as being arguably the best in town and our menu offers a wide variety of tasty dishes served all day every day including breakfast & brunch. Less
