“The Bars have set the bar high in rental accommodation in Chester!”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We recently stayed here for a late week/weekend visit as a family and were blown away at the location and quality of the apartment. Within a two minute walk of Grosvenor Park and a maximum of 5 minutes to the railway station; this apartment fulfilled and exceeded expectation! Pristine and clean and fresh with plenty of towels and bedding and large amounts of storage space, however; the apartment still felt comfortable and homely. The kitchen was well equipped with Tea and milk provided which was well received after a long train journey from London. Local amenities were fantastic, such as the convenience store opposite and there are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance, however, to reassure, there is no noise disturbance from any of these establishments.

We have no complaints about any aspect of the apartment as the feedback we have provided has already been acted upon and facilities updated as the owner had already planned.

We will definitely be returning to The Bars, Chester, not only because we love Chester but because this apartment was fantastic!

Many thanks for your kind words, it makes it all worth while when I receive great feedback from a guest.

The location of the apartment is excellent as you state and since you vacated we have already started improving the apartment further by installing a 40 inch LED TV in the lounge and buying new kitchen equipment. New luxury carpets and furniture will be fitted in December so when you visit the next time, things will looks even better than before.

“Comfort and good location”
Reviewed 6 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Comfort with modern amenities plus good location usually hard to come by. But The Bars has it all. Its location is very near to everything if you don't mind walking around. Its near a busy street but the building envelope is superbly made to attenuate the sound outside. Not only the outside side but also the outside temperature; booked in the early winter but we don't really need to turn the room heater on. Not so sure about summer temperature because it seems the unit doesn't have A/C. Water heater is available but it is preset to save heating use during night time so changing the night bath habit is a little getting used to. Other than that, heated water is available continuously during day time.

Also, the property manager is very accessible if help is needed! Overall, very positive experience. A very good place to stay in historic Chester!

Hi Jinky,

Thanks for your positive review and I'm glad you had an enjoyable stay at The Bars.

Regarding the issue with hot water which you highlighted, this has now been fixed, someone had changed the clock so it wasn't heating up at the correct time when you needed hot water.

Thanks for leaving a great review Kathy, we look forward to welcoming you back again next year. The underground secure parking in The Bars really is a bonus in Chester because of the lack of parking around and its location just a few minutes away from the city centre means you never have too far to walk.

“Great spot and facilities and very comfortable”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just a short walk to the centre of Chester and great coffee at Neros cafe. The facilities including free wifi, secure car parking, washing machine and dryer are all essential to the suitcase traveller. The space is big, comfortable and modern and we enjoyed it very much
