Excellent location with superb view of the river from our room. Only stayed the one night unfortunately but would definitely book again. Service good and enjoyed our breakfast. Also, liked the little touch of having access to cold fresh milk and water from fridge outside out room.

My family and I spent a really good time in this B&B. There is a wonderful atmosphere, the rooms are tiny but wonderful. I really loved the breakfast, I had the chance to taste a real British breakfast, and it was so good. It is also located near the centre. But what I liked most was the kindness of the...

The best thing about owning a bed and breakfast is meeting and chatting with so many interesting people - and it is lovely when this is appreciated as it is in your review. Sorry about the temperature of the bathroom - hope it didn't spoil your visit.

Friendly, charming, central. This is a great base to explore the city. Close enough to be convenient for everywhere, far enough to out the way of city noise. The room was great, the view gorgeous, the shower room modern, the bed comfortable. Breakfast was great, too. Nothing to complain about, just that my stay was too short.

We stayed in room 6 overlooking the weir highly recommended. The hotel is very clean and the owners are friendly and hospitable providing a quality breakfast with locally sourced ingredients. Recorder House is located on the walls so it is ideal for all the attractions including the racecourse and restaurants all walkable once parked you wont need your car!!

Knew very little about this area of Great Britain so was delighted to get the opportunity to spend a couple of days in this city steeping in Roman history. Enjoyed the shopping too! Recorder house definitely in great location being actually on the wall that surrounds Chester and therefore close and easy access to sites of interest. We were welcomed...

We really enjoyed our stay at The Recorder House, very central and a lovely view of the weir on the river. Good breakfast, but may have to wait if everyone comes down to breakfast at the same time, one couple had a very short wait. We arrived with a reserved parking space booked, but were no car spaces available, and...

Thank you for the positive comments. I assume from your comments on car parking that you arrived on a Friday. We have extra spaces available to us (not another hotel's) after office hours. Invariably, some of our guests arrive later on a Friday and this usually means we can easily park everyone. However, this did not happen that particular day...
