Feedback code: Z3RK97J We chose this hotel after reading the positive reviews on this site and our very comfortable stay certainly fulfilled our expectations. Edgar House is located on the riverside in the centre of the city, with a splendid view from our Riverside Room. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable, with individual and tasteful decor and furnishings (replicated...

C9KC76R. Welcomed by Amy who made me feel very welcome. Luxurious room with top notch furniture and fittings. Hotel is located in a central, quiet location and within walking distance of everything Chester has to offer. Breakfast is exceptional and best quality ingredients are used. Served by owner Mike and nothing is too much trouble. Well worth a visit.

After reading all the wonderful reviews about Edgar House I decided I would really like to treat my wife to a romantic break, so booked a two night stay with high expectations, upon arrival my expectations were met with a welcome glass of prosecco and named parking space, the deluxe balcony room was perfection and we were eagerly looking forward...

I really wanted to have a wee break from The Lodge at Ruddington so enquired at Edgar House for a two night bnb experience-alas at £430.00 for a single it was little beyond my budget ☹️ Need to put my bnb prices up but good luck to the owners and who wants to be cheap when it's hard work and...

Dear Peter Many thanks indeed for your review. I was sorry that we weren't able to welcome you on this occasion. I'm afraid we aren't able to reduce rates for single occupancy. This is simply because we offer no less the luxury experience whether it's one person or two sharing, so it perhaps makes it look more when not travelling...

Feedback Code: Y5AA21Y Stayed here for two nights 28th/29th April after my partner booked it for my birthday having heard on Chris Evan’s BBC breakfast show that it was one of the most romantic hotels anywhere. Well, I guess it depends on your own individual definition of romantic but if luxury and indulgence are it, then it definitely lives up...

I came to this hotel with my tutors and my classmates to try the renowned afternoon tea we had heard so much about.
