A lovely apartment in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is ideally placed for the city centre and for other amenities, as well as being a short walk away from the river. It is very comfortable and well equipped and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return.

Roomy, well connected apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here and as non-drivers managed to get out and about quite easily on the local buses. The river was literally 2 minutes walk away and the beautiful Grovsvenor Park just over the road in full bloom and a friendly squirrel climbed up me for a treat. We loved exploring the many historical venues and buildings. The apartment is very spacious and all the amenities were top class. WiFi worked immediately, we couldn't find sky tv channels. We couldn't find any dishwasher tablets so had to wash-up by hand.Beds were large and comfy but mattress was flattened a little at the edges which made me feel I might fall out. We loved having our little dog with us and he was very happy with the large lounge and open kitchen. We enjoyed a meal in a very old pub in Foregate Street where they welcomed our dog and the food was delicious. The canal side pubs and bars looked excellent and were trendy and alive at night.By day there was plenty of outside seating or you could watch the barges and walk the clean paths and bridges.There was so much we didn't have time for that we will have to go again.

Lovely apartment and ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

Stephen (the owner) gave clear instructions, so it was very easy to acess the apartment & the private underground parking. On arrival the heating was on for us which was a nice touch. The apartment was very clean and nicely decorated. Was very comfortable and we felt right at home. Kitchen is very well equipt for cooking meals. All the bars & restaurants etc are literally 10 minute walk. Would definately stay here again if visting chester.

Staying in chester

  • 3 of 5

On the hole the accomodation was ok, with a few niggles. 1. It was niosy when one sat to catch up on the news on Tv.

2. It was cold as both the storage heaters in the flat for the front room were turned Off at the wall !!.

3. But the main one was that it took forever to get the damage waiver returned to myself, as it took countless phone calls and I often wondered why we couldn't access any more reviews,for the property.

Mr. Barrow & Mr. Davies.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback, regarding the storage heaters and them being switched off at the wall, this is something a previous guest must have done which I was unaware of, I did my best to try and resolve the issue by telling you where the extra heaters are located in the apartment. Regarding the delay in the return of your damage deposit, the delay was down to a mix up with where the deposit was located, previously I had been receiving the Damage Deposits from guests, but I changed this so your booking company returns them automatically. I admit it took a while to work this out, but I did return your deposit in full as soon as we got to the bottom of why the deposit had not been refunded to you. Finally I would like to say that I’m very disappointed with the 3* rating you have given for your stay; the two main issues were dealt with as soon as possible. I would also like to add that I have received over 50 5* reviews with different rental companies I advertise with.

Location

Activity and Interests

Travel:

The Bars is very well placed for transport, with excellent road access to the North West and North Wales. The M53 and M56 are close by, while the A55 North Wales Expressway swings around the bottom of the city before heading out along the stunning coastline. There are direct trains to London from Chester Station, with a journey time of just over two hours. You can also join the Merseyrail line to Liverpool at Chester, with underground trains taking you directly into the City Centre.

Further Details:

The Bars is ideally located in the heart of Chester City Centre, just minutes walk from Forgate Street, home to all the high street and independent shops and restaurants.

There is a local convenience store located directly opposite The Bars, as well as several take away shops (Indian, Chicken, Chinese).

The new multi million pound Waitrose store is also located on the same street as The Bars offering guest a great choice of quality food.
