Perfectly located by the river Dee and short walk to the centre which was very christmassy. The hotel was lovely, no faults to find. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend. We are going back next summer.

About
Description
The Boathouse is a unique pub with 21 riverside bedrooms perfectly situated right on the river Dee in Chester. In 2015 we added Chester's first 'floating beer garden' to our already scenic outside terrace More which has kept The Boathouse evolving and adding a real wow factor. We are proud to serve JW Lees beer & also offer a selection of fine wines from around the world served by the glass or bottle. Our Sunday roast has the reputation as being arguably the best in town and our menu offers a wide variety of tasty dishes served all day every day including breakfast & brunch. Less
