What a find! This perfectly appointed apartment has been a dream. it has been far beyond our expectations with every convenience we could have wanted. It is so very comfortable with everything to hand. Thank you to the owners and the person who looks after the place. We can highly recommend the Harkers Arms for the most delicious food and beers and wines. Just a stones throw along the canal towards Chester (adults only though). We have enjoyed every minute of our stay. M and R - Derbyshire
Beautiful apartment – well worthy of its accolades! No complaints at all – everything perfect. Will recommend and hopefully revisit. Thank you. H M - Birmingham
My 3rd stay and brilliant as always. The recent refurbishment has been done to the usual high standard. Thank you Sandra & Graham for excellent service. I will most certainly return next year and will recommend to all my friends. J B - Powys
Dear Sandra and GrahamI have to say the apartment was superb, it far exceeded our expectations. We found the apartment to be spotlessly clean and thought it had been prepared by someone that had a pride in their work. My wife normally cleans all the cutlery and crockery before we can eat anything and I was amazed when she said there was no need.You have obviously put a great deal of planning into the apartment, we found the information packs to be very useful, I managed to find Tesco with the print out you had supplied.I have recommended the apartment to family and work colleagues and directed them to your website.It is saying something when someone as fussy as me can't recommend one single improvement!
My friends and I stayed for a long weekend and had a great time. Apartment was easy to find and within easy reach of Chester centre. It was very clean, warm and tastefully decorated. 5* accomadation! We have recommended it to many already! A great weekend,
Well appointed, clean and comfortable. Superb apartment. Great attention to detail. Well done! Will stay again. Thank you also for the wine.
Thank you for a lovely apartment. Had a fantastic time. the flat was beautifully furnished and clean. Everything we needed to enjoy a 2 week holiday with our children. We will certainly be back on our next visit to Chester.Thanks again.
We spent a wonderful week in the very elegant flat. Everything we needed was here all very comfortable and warm (we didn’t even need the heating in October!) An added bonus was being able to enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony overlooking the canal.K.W - Ealing, West LondonWe had a lovely stay in this beautiful apartment, had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Was great being so close to some wonderful restaurants, everything was within walking distance. We especially enjoyed walking along the canal, watching the boats. F G - Bromley, KentBeautiful apartment, ideal location we have had a very enjoyable weekend. Wine very much appreciated after our long drive from the North.N H J D - Aberdeenshire, Scotland
