My girlfriend and I spent a fantastic Thursday night and the wonderful Edgar House. Everything was easy and personalised from check-in to check-out. On arrival we were shown to the cinema room to relax with a glass of prosecco whilst our bags were taken to our room. We had requested the strawberries and homemade truffles to be in our room...

Dear Joe Many thanks indeed for your great review - much appreciated. That doesn't sound like the right thing was done re the strawberries, so I will definitely speak with our chef about that - thank you for letting me know. We look forward to welcoming you and Lottie back again. Thanks again Joe. Best wishes, Mike

From the minute we arrived until the minute we left Edgar House was a delight. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Jane who showed us into the lounge. Reuben came to greet us and offered tea, homemade scones, jam and glasses of champagne which were included in the Winter Haven package. We had booked a riverside room, however, we...

My Husband and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at this gorgeous luxury Hotel. The Hotel is in a prime position, right on the City Wall beside the river Dee. We originally booked for 1 night but decided to go for 2 instead which meant us staying in 2 different rooms - what a great way to...

My husband bought me a night away at Edgar house for my birthday as a surprise. I can not rate this hotel any higher, from the beautiful setting and river view from our room, to the happy birthday chocolates, and the stunning room with every last detail thought about, it was just fantastic! What really makes this hotel stand out...

We are lucky to have stayed at this hotel four times, on a great position in Chester on the wall, with private parking. This last time for a 60th birthday treat. The hotel is a credit to the owners and the whole team of staff who work there. Our special thanks go to Mike and Amy for making sure we...

A small but very lovely hotel in a great location next to the River Dee yet only a short walk to the fabulous walled city of Chester. You can see that every effort has been made to make Edgar House as attractive as possible down to the smallest details. We especially liked the stunning "fake but legal" original impressionist canvases...

Dear Bazza14 Many thanks indeed for your lovely review. Although I'm very sorry about the coffee. We honestly do have a very lovely blend of coffee, and on breakfast we use cafetieres. I can only think that there just wasn't enough ground coffee put into the cafetiere which must have made it week. I am extremely sorry about that, and...

Top quality all the way through. Nice touches all around, spacious rooms great bathroom, large comfy bed. Staff were super, efficient and helpful. Breakfast very good though it did bring out my partners one pick up point, her toasted teacake was too crispy. A full English soon took care of that.

Dear John Many thanks indeed for your lovely review. Apologies again for the crispy teacake - it should never have left the kitchen, and the particular chef who allowed that to happen has since left the business! I do hope we can welcome you back again. Best wishes, Mike

The hotel was excellent in every way, fabulous rooms and brilliant staff. We ate in the restaurant at night and had the tasting menu which was out of this world, each dish perfectly seasoned and cooked. The wine list was highly impressive as was the breakfast. Can't wait to return.

A warm welcome and a glass of fizz on arrival is a great way to start a weekend in Chester. Fantastic room with views over the river and the worlds most comfortable bed. Good choice at breakfast with local apple juice and lots of coffee. Only a couple very small gripes, there was no fridge in the room so you...

Dear Anil Many thanks indeed for your lovely review. I do understand what you say about the fridge and the ironing board. It was a conscious decision to not put fridges in the room, because of the noise they can make. The position of the wardrobe is different in each room, and I agree in some rooms it is visible...
