“Wonderful setting”
Reviewed 1 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Have just returned from a 10 day trip to Chester and stayed in this lovely self-catering apartment. The location of 23 The Groves is gorgeous with beautiful views of the river Dee with the boats, rowers, birds and people to watch. There is a lovely outside patio which looks down the river. The owner, Sarah, also has the restaurant underneath the apartment and lovely breakfasts there are included in the rental price, which is a real bonus. Sarah has decorated the apartment very tastefully and everything you could need is there - great showers, constant hot water, comfortable beds and a beautiful sitting room with fantastic views of the river on two sides. The weather was gorgeous and we really enjoyed our break. We have no hesitation in recommending this destination.

“Fabulous apartment and cafe - wonderful weekend”
Reviewed 22 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

I would definitely recommend the Moorings - we had a great stay in Chester and the apartment was the icing on the cake! The attention to detail is brilliant - the accommodation has everything you need. We had lunch when we arrived at the cafe and it was very tasty, and good value. All the staff are helpful and hard working. We also had breakfast included in the price of the stay and the breakfasts are delicious. Thank you so much - we will be booking again.

“Excellent in every way ☀️”
Reviewed 8 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Number 23 The Groves is a charming, comfortable apt! The view of the river is beautiful and there are both birds and boats to provide interest at all times. Breakfast at the Moorings is delicious and very handy, one can walk easily to the railroad station, cathedral,Roman ruins and shops. Sarah has provided all one needs and is always friendly and helpful. I recommend it wholeheartedly!

“Return to No. 23”
Reviewed 25 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed here in February 2017 and returned for a second stay in September. Just as homely and comfortable as before. Worth mentioning again that the location is wonderful. On the banks of the River Dee and a short walk into the city centre for shopping. Definitely worth having a car parking space in the city. Breakfast each morning, included in the booking fee, makes a great start to the day. Just a lovely place to stay.
