Exceptional 10,0
We were made to feel very welcome at check in. The room was warm and comfortable. The location was excellent with fabulous views and an easy walk of about 10 minutes into town. Parking was easy and free to hotel guests. All the staff were lovely and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Boathouse to family and friends wishing to visit the beautiful city of Chester.

Very friendly helpful staff. Great riverside location - brilliant to watch the towers in action.

Fabulous location overlooking the river. Service is very good and very clean. The rooms are tastefully decorated. My disappointment was the fact I booked a double room and the bed was two twins pushed together so did not have a great nights sleep and in the end slept on one side of the bed (single) otherwise it’s a very good establishment
