Stayed with Beryl at Rowland House a few times now over the years and it is always a great welcome back. Lovely, small, quaint B&B in a great location for walking into centre of Chester for shopping or at night time - 10 minute walk at the most. Very well kept and spotlessly clean. Rooms are a good size with... More

What a wonderful place. Located just on the outskirts of town, took us around 5-10 minutes to walk in. Great welcome everything was ready when we arrived, good to have off road parking. Everything in the room you would expect an more. Breakfast was great. Lovely to chat to both Beryl & Roberta. We will definitely be staying here again.

Situated in quiet residential street, with off road parking and about 10 mins walk into city centre. The house is spotlessly clean and everything that you need is provided. The owner, Beryl, was fantastically helpful, accommodating and welcoming and we had a wonderful stay for the Chester half marathon. Thank you so much Beryl !
