“No Hailstones ....!!”
Reviewed 2 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

At the beginning of the New Year, our friends and us visit a City for a long weekend.
The golden rule is that our accommodation must be within walking distance of the chosen city centre, as we park the car on the Friday afternoon when we arrive and we don't move it until we are going home on the Monday morning.

Chester was selected by agreement and my wife spotted The Little Tin Chapel which we all agreed looked very different. It is located in the Student Accommodation area of Chester University, alongside a Canal and only about 150 yards away from the Roman City Walls, less than half a mile from the city centre. The location could not have been better and although parking might have been a bit of a problem the owners had arranged for secure parking in a nearby Boatyard which was locked overnight. Perfect.

Being the first week in the year we never expect great weather but trust that it won't snow. It didn't and it wasn't cold either although we were all secretly hoping that we might get some hailstones so that we could experience the sound in the Chapel, under a wrinkly tin roof. Sadly it didn't happen but probably for the best!

Inside the Chapel is stunning and it presents you with a great WOW Factor. The Bathroom is big and very adequate with a great shower. The kitchen area is just huge and beautifully done.

The two bedrooms are very comfortable and there are little considerate touches provided like a small torch for the middle of the night bathroom trips. But beware there is one loose floorboard as you enter the bathroom and in the early hours when all is quiet it makes one helluva noise as the board moves on its loose nail. You will wake everyone up!

There's plenty of comfortable seating provided as well as a good sized dining table. There's a great little Log Burner in the Lounge area that we never got to use because the central heating is so efficient. The floors are mainly salvaged timber flooring which is warm underfoot and look really good.

Games, reading matter and tourist information is provided in abundance and you should read the article on the Little Tin Chapel building project in one of the Renovation magazine's provided to better appreciate the hard work and tremendous problems encountered during the renovation of such a quirky, attractive building. It was very much a family effort and collectively they have done such a brilliant job in producing such a fine, comfortable holiday rental whilst retaining much of the character of the historic chapel building.

Chester has much to offer and it is such a beautiful place to walk round. Take a guided walking tour and appreciate some of the fabulous history about it. You will not be disappointed we promise. Then take the short walk back to your little Tin Chapel in time for Vespers ... or a chilled bottle of Prosecco!

Heartily and genuinely recommended.

“A perfect place to stay with lots of character”
Reviewed 31 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A beautiful individual property maintained to a very high standard. Very warm and spacious with both comfortable and interesting items of furniture.
Lovely touch with the magazine and book which enables you to read about the original property and recent renovation of it.
Ten minute stroll into the centre of Chester walking along the wall, which has some lovely shops and pubs.
Great atmosphere and food over at Telfords Warehouse which is a two minute walk away, with the added bonus of regular live music.
No issues with parking, we left our car parked in the secure location for the whole of our stay.
Our trip was a Christmas gift getaway for my husband and I but if we had invited our two teenagers, there would have been plenty of room to enable us to all have our own space .
I would highly recommend this property if you are looking for an individual, spacious, comfortable place to explore Chester.

“Wonderful stay at the Tin Chapel”
Reviewed 20 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

My family stayed for a few days in December and very much enjoyed the Tin Chapel. It is very well appointed and comfortable and warm and we loved our stay.

We had no issues with parking and it was quiet at night, we would recommend staying here.
