We chose a room at the back of the hotel as we didn't want to hear any noise from the river as we are light sleepers and we found the silence was golden, so missed out on the views over the river which others appear to enjoy. The room is dark in keeping with the 17th century period. The bed...

Entering from their car park, through the courtyard garden, didn't really prepare us for how beautiful this hotel is. If you like history and antique furniture, this is the place. We had a four poster room - "Libra" overlooking the Dee. Our bedroom had a shower only which suits us. The hotel was sympathetically decorated and a delicious, locally sourced...

This is a small B&B/Hotel run by Fiona and Adrian who are the most welcoming of hosts. The rooms are beautiful we had a room at the rear but I would recommend if they are available you book a room at the front overlooking the river the views are amazing. It is well situated - you can walk directly out...

My wife & I stayed here 2 nights. We had a lovely friendly welcome from Fiona, a fantastic room overlooking The River Dee which was lovely to hear during the night. The location is excellent in that you have safe secure parking behind the hotel yet you can walk the front door straight onto the Roman Walls then walk into...

Recorder House is so well located - right on the walls. If you are lucky enough to have a room overlooking the river, you can enjoy the sight of water birds and the murmuring of the water as it passes. Our room was very well appointed, with a full range of toiletries and even two flannels. Breakfast was lovely, with...

Stayed at The recorder House for 2 nights in May. The highlight is the breakfast which is second to none! We had a room on the first floor at the back of the house. The curtains don't close, due to the being gathered to tightly on the drawstring - no good if you like to sleep in total darkness! This...

Our flight was over an hour late into Heathrow and we were going to be arriving several hours later than planned. I called and they were so great and reassuring. When we arrived we were given a gorgeous, spotlessly clean room, (double ensuite rear), shown where everything was, then sent of for some whirlwind sightseeing. It was exactly what we...
