Have just returned from a two night stay in Grooms Cottage for a family of five, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment was ready for us on arrival, and was clean and tidy throughout, and very comfy. Loved the layout with all the bedrooms and bathroom leading off the main hallway, and having a downstairs utility was very handy. The beds were very comfy and clean, and the bathroom was very big. Apartment was always warm, but we were so lucky with the warm weather, and car parking adjacent. Being above the pool and games room was excellent! Just nipped downstairs to a lovely, warm, clean pool which felt like our own private pool, as we were lucky enough to have it all to ourselves. Boys kept themselves busy in the evenings playing pool, as the Wifi is a bit patchy, as was the tv signal, and you can imagine what it's like if teenagers have no Wifi! but we would highly recommend, as great value for money. We had a day in Chester Zoo, and a day aboard the Mersey Ferry in Liverpool, and a morning around Chester, as we are frequent visitors to the area, and have visited most of the attractions. Thank You Grooms Cottage :)

“Excellent, clean, warm and spacious property”
Reviewed 6 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We booked this holiday rental for a short break with family. The house was exceptionally clean and warm when we arrived. Plenty of space and lovely cosy bedrooms. I would definitely stay here again. The swimming pool although not very big, was thoroughly enjoyed by us all.

“Would like to visit again when the upgrades are complete”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Grooms Cottage has a lovely light, airy living room, huge bathroom and good layout which makes up for the rather small bedrooms.
The kitchen is very well equipped, with plenty of crockery, glasses, etc and lots of tools we did not use, but would be useful for an extended stay.
When the refurbishment is completed it will be an even better place to stay and we look forward to having an opportunity to see it again next year, as it was wonderful to have a swimming pool all to myself for a while!

“Spacious well equipped in an good location. Could do with a little freshen up but excellent value for money.”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stopped with my two daughters, Grooms cottage sleeps 6 so 3 of us found if plenty spacious. Only one bathroom may make it restrictive for a large group. The kitchen was equipped with everything I you'd have at home, bedding and towels provided were spot on. Being in the same building as the pool made access in inclement weather no issue. Location was ideal for touring the area but car travel is essential as there isn't anything in immediate walking distance and the road doesn't have a path. My only negative, and given the reasonable price it's probably relative, the carpet was a bit grubby and a bit of titivating around the cottage would have freshened it up, also don't think the pool area was cleaned daily. All in all excellent holiday, great value for money, tip - use the park and ride into Chester,
