  • "A very wonderful stay, we highly recommend this property."

    The property is spacious and well appointed. The location is also convenient, close to a large Morrisons with cafe, Bache station 10-15 minutes away and Chester city centre also a similar distance. Even still, the house is located on a quiet residential cul-de-sac type street and we did not hear any noise throughout the stay. We were originally booked to stay in the property for a week, but enjoyed our stay so much we extended our stay twice, ultimately staying a total of 3 weeks. Some wonderful touches as well - we stayed over the Christmas period and the nice Christmas tree was much appreciated. The hosts are very easy to get in touch with and remained in constant contact, including offering a change of linen each week after we extended our stay. We would be happy to return if ever in Chester again.

  • "The location is ideal for a 30 minute walk into Chester , a 10 minute drive to Chester zoo, a Morrisons about 5 minutes drive."

    Lady who I spoke to was really nice and helpful and key arrangements all good. Parking on site pet and smoke free reason we booked this property. We’ve used Skye’s holiday cottages loads of time.BUT have to say although “surface clean “the house generally inside and out needs a thorough good clean. I’m certainly not knocking the cleaner who must go in inbetween guests probably on a time scale. How often is it deep cleaned. I have several photos that I’m happy to share with Sykes. You are promoting these properties and I do not feel this is up to scratch. Yes it is very dated that’s not the issue ,but cobwebs from kitchen light which is above dining table. The cobwebbed dirty door frame as you enter into a hallway with just a light bulb not even a shade on it was NOT a nice welcome. When was this property shown any TLC . Not expecting gleaming white eaves when you open bedroom windows BUT that amount of grime and cobwebs is years worth. The basic sinks fridge etc were clean I am just explaining how the aesthetics of the property are. Assume it was a property purchased to be used as a holiday let . Appears bare minimum has been done for eg. kitchen cupboard doors have been painted but not the plynths , inside the door . Like I say I’m happy to email you my photos to show the points I am raising. You are more than welcome to publish my feedback. The complimentary milk in fridge and tea and coffee was a nice gesture I’m not a clean fanatic but seriously expect better than this.

    Thanks for your feedback. We take all feedback very seriously and do take onboard all comments. We can only apologise if there was a cobweb in the property, the property is cleaned thoroughly before and after each guest however on this occasion the duster must have not quite caught the cobweb in question. We do think that the comment regarding cobwebbed dirty doorframe (for which we have seen the photos) is a little harsh given that this is an outside entry door and whilst this is cleaned, it would be very difficult to keep pristine at all times. Similarly the comments regarding the eaves in the windows is again a little harsh as we do not feel that these are as bad as indicated in your feedback and again it would be difficult to keep this pristine at all times. Thank you for the notice regarding the lightshade in the entrance hall, we had not actually noted this (nor have we had any feedback regarding this whilst we have had this property as a holiday let). We will look to find a suitable lightshade which does not diminish the light in this hallway. Regarding the kitchen, the doors as you note have been painted, however, to allow for ease of cleaning, the kickboards and interior of the doors have been left bare. However, we will look to see if any further upgrades can be made to the kitchen to improve the aesthetics. As per the above, we do welcome all feedback and will always strive to improve the property following consideration of the same. We will look at engaging a more frequent cleaning of the exterior of the property, however, we do feel that the one star cleaning review and one star facilities and maintenance review are harsh given your comments. No issues regarding the cleanliness of the property we raised during the course of your stay and it appears that you have largely raised issue with exterior cleanliness. Whilst we do appreciate these comments, we do not think a one star review is a fair representation of the overall cleaniness inside and out. Regarding maintenance/facilities, we can only see that the issue with age/modernity of the property has been raised in addition to the issue if cleaning. Again, we do not feel that one star is a fair reflection of the property offered in light of the advertisement of this property. We do hope that despite the issues you have highlighted that you enjoyed your stay at the property and in Chester. Property Owner

    The house was spacious for us (a family of four). The owners were very attentive before we arrived with clear instructions on how to access the house and checking in on us during the week. The location of the house is on a quiet estate with a private drive.

  • "Had a lovely weeks stay in this property."

    It was nice to meet the owner Charlotte, who made us very welcome.There was plenty of room for 6 adults. It is an easy 25 minute flat walk into Chester or a bus stop is nearby the house,a large Morrisons just around the corner and a train station. Lots of shops to browse and a big christmas market in the centre. A vast choice of restaurants and cafes to choose from and plenty of historical sites to view. We would highly recommend a trip to Chester.

  • "Had a most enjoyable stay."

    The property gave us a great opportunity to explore Chester easily, on foot and by car being just a 20 min walk into City Centre. A very useful and large Morrisons was a 10 min walk away as was Bache station with easy parking. We also made use of a back garden to relax in at the end of a busy day. A nice little extra would be to provide a few dishwasher tablets/a cleaning product or two so that we could clean as we go like we do at home but that's just a suggestion and our personal preference. Would definitely return and recommend to others. What a great place Chester is!! Loved the shopping, zoo, cruises on River Dee, Cathedral, trip to Liverpool but be aware for beatles experience you have to book in advance. Thank you.

About the location

CHESTER

Liverpool 17 miles; Manchester 36 miles.

Chester has quite rightly been described as 'the jewel of the North-West of England'. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the city is that within a very small area there is evidence of every period of history - from the old walls and amphitheatre of Roman times, through medieval churches, Elizabethan timber-framed townhouses and Georgian terraces, to Victorian restorations and 21st century architecture. The city has much to offer the tourist, including excellent shopping in and around the famous Tudor 'Rows' and lovely walks along the Roman Walls, beside the River Dee and through the picturesque Grosvenor Park. Explore Chester's beautiful medieval cathedral, visit Chester Racecourse or spend a day at the world renowned Chester Zoo. Further afield, the stunning Welsh mountains and coastline, the quaint market towns and villages of Cheshire and the Wirral Peninsula with its first class golf courses, are all within easy touring distance, whilst frequent rail services make Liverpool, Manchester and the North Wales coast readily accessible.
