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

All the best, M&M

Stayed in triple room which was spacious and comfy. Great nights sleep. Hosts friendly and cook a tasty breakfast. I would definitely stay here again and just 5 minutes from station and some decent pubs.

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.

WelcomeDevonia dates back to 1856 and uniquely Devonia Lodge is the first guest house on Hoole Road in Chester both in time and location, Hoole Road (A56) is principally the main accommodation area of Chester, popular with visitors from all over the world due to its excellent location.Of all the guest houses on Hoole Road, Devonia Lodge is closest to both the city centre, (which is approximately 8-10 minutes walk), and 5 minutes to the railway station. 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
