My wife, me and my mother in law booked 3 nights here. My wife and me took a family room (double bed and a single bed) and my mother in law had a single room. The first thing we noticed when we went into our room was an overpowering smell of drains/sewage which was coming from the en suite toilet/shower...

Firstly we'd just like to say how surprised we were to receive this review as at no point did the guest/s make any complaints or voice any concerns to either myself or my partner during their stay. In fact they checked in on Monday afternoon, where upon they were shown to their 2 rooms and after about half an hour...

We stayed here for 2 nights last week (20th & 21st April). The Devonia Lodge is ideally located, being just a short walk into Chester, but also being very close to local bars and restaurants in Hoole. There is free secure off-street parking to the rear which was an added bonus. Mark and Maree were perfect hosts with their friendly...

Really liked this b&b. Kids were happy, it was close to the city and zoo. The service was great and breakfast was very filling and enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this for 2-3 nights in Chester, it provided a good base for us and parking was simple. Only one thing which could have been better which was having a curtain in...

Thanks for the positive feedback, you are absolutely right about the extra curtain in the downsatairs room, we only changed the rooms around fairly recently and there are still a few adjustments to be made. Glad it didn't spoil things and look forward to seeing you and your lovely kids next time you visit Chester. All the best, M&M

Stayed here last night. Very nice guest house, lovely and homely. Room was very nice, with a shared bathroom. I think I would try to book a room with a bathroom next time. Would stay here again. Bars and eatery's within walking distance and bonus it has free parking. Really enjoyed the breakfast also

Highly recommend this b&b, very friendly welcoming hosts. Cosey and homely. Beds comfortable, rooms quiet I had a great nights sleep. Breakfast included and very tasty with a personal touch from the owners who are lovely and sociable. Great location Hoole has ample pubs and restaurants and is near station or the centre. Would definitely stay here again.

The same family has run the Devonia since 1964, we offer you tremendous value for money and a homely welcome.Excellent ValueDevonia Lodge prides itself on offering you the customer comfort, service and highly competitive rates, our staff is largely made up of family and a competent morning team, each with their own personalities to make you feel at home.Stuteley's Cafe BarDevonia has been trading as a guest house for nearly half a century so we recently decided to open a medium sized licensed bar, (October 5th 2012) for residents and non residents alike. Stuteley’s is an idea put together by us to provide a Cafe Bar for all to come and enjoy, We feel that Stuteley’s is in a well located position for Mums that do coffee, Ladies and Gents that do Lunch to folk that like a relaxing drink in nice comfortable surroundings anytime. ... more   less
