Have just stayed at the Strathearn for 3 days, having previously stayed there a few years ago. The owner was friendly & welcoming, as on our previous visit. We spoke to his wife on a couple of occasions when there were a few minor issues #tv stopped working# and she was friendly & told us her husband was out but...

Went to Chester with three friends for our annual Christmas treat. The owner was very friendly but his wife was rude and obnoxious when we asked for help with the television. The rooms were clean and spacious but on suite was a little odd (wall did not reach the ceiling)! The breakfast was very nice but sorry, would not stay...

We stayed at the Strathearn in late August, and having lived in Chester during University we did not know what to expect being the first time without accommodation of our own. On arrival we were greeted by a jolly and enthusiastic fellow who had a very soothing voice as he spoke. We felt welcome and instantly calmed from our stressful...

This is a lovely B&B a family home, but had enough privacy, very clean, well equipped room, comfortable bed, superb location, delicious breakfast. Value for money! Wish I could have stayed longer. The owner I apologise I've forgotten his name but he couldn't do enough for me. His politeness and charm was not immediately aparent, but it was just a...

The en suite was very unsuitable no roof and a plastic folding door. No info in the room to say what breakfast options we had or...

First of all, never trust the Internet. When I was looking for somewhere to stay in Chester and put in my required dates, it told me that Strathearn didn't have any vacancies. In desperation, I phoned on the off chance, looking for a single room, and they did have one. Unfortunately, it was not en suite, but obviously this kept...

Great for hiring bikes. Owner was very helpful and friendly and picked out bikes for us. Helmets are included in the price. Bikes are of a very high quality and great to ride. It costs £12 for the day and £8 for the half day (after 3pm). Would definitely recommend!

I'm honestly surprised reading your review you kindly left for us. Originally you booked in here for two nights. In the morning, after breakfast, all of a sudden you cancelled your second night letting me down and as a result I could not re-let the room. You travelled further into Wales as the weather turned better. I'm a really flexible...

I've been meaning to write for a while to say how much we enjoyed our stay! As part of a large group of cyclists on an outing through the area, we chose this B&B for its location and for the great advice and general helpfulness of the landlord when booking. We were not dissapointed by the service and full breakfast...

Dear Zender_444, Thanks for choosing Strathearn B&B to stay at during your holiday. I'm really glad you hired a bicycle here. This is the only place in Chester where you can hire bikes. The business of Chester Cycle Hire operates under the same address as Strathearn B&B and there is a special offer for guests staying at the B&B. Hope...
