Many – so many thanks for everything.
We enjoyed our stay in your lovely house. The family had a very good time.
We hope to see you again next year.
This lovely Victorian house has been divided into two semis . The bedrooms are : 1 in the basement , 1on the ground floor , 2 on the first floor & 3 on the second floor . The kitchen & breakfast room which we mostly used are in the basement & there are 48 steps from there up to the top 3 bedrooms . The basement bedroom is void of a door on the ensuite so no privacy if sharing. The stairs down are very narrow , they appear to be carpeted stone steps so tricky with slippers & a challenge for anybody with a slight mobility problem.
This may be a comfortable house to stay but it is not luxury accommodation , very dated , frayed towels & rug .
We found the mismatch of mugs very stained & purchased 'denture cleaner ' to eventually clean them . The china was cracked & chipped & the tea towels smelt of rotten eggs . An electric kettle & vegetable steamer would be a great asset to the kitchen . The Aga is ok if you don't mind casseroles every night . Good for toast though !
We also had water leaking from ceilings in two rooms . No bottle of wine as a gesture for the inconvenience but a charge of £5 to return a small parcel costing £2.10 in postage . Very disappointing .
A lovely Victorian house in a pleasant area of Chester a short walk from the city centre. We had booked for one week at Christmas for a family celebration for two 70th birthdays. We had problems booking as the site was hacked, and someone in Asia wanted payment immediately, but we were very suspicious and phoned the owner and sorted it out, so nothng lost.
The house is advertised as luzury accomodation but it had some faded rooms, cracks in the ceiling in the upstairs rooms, and frayed and threadbare carpet in places. The beds were really comfortable and everything was very clean. The AGA was lovely but there was a mishmash of cups, mugs and plates in the kitchen and the house seemed geared up to be a B & B rather than a holiday let. The boiler broke down on Christmas day but it was a simple matter to rectify, and these things happen.
Sadly the owner double- booked us for one night, with a party wanting to come for the New Year.. We agreed to leave one day early, feeling sorry for the orher party, and the owner gave us £100 in compensation saying that we got a good deal at £1950 for the week, and anyway she only let it out for a six day week at Christmas. If you book this house look at the different sites as prices vary.
