"Great apartment in excellent location"
My wife and I stayed here for a week and found it to be excellent but we were disappointed on arrival to find a note stating that the TV had broken the previous day and would be replaced as soon as possible. Having had a similar experience abroad (when nothing was done throughout our stay), we were doubtful that this would be resolved quickly but were surprised and delighted when, after an hour, the lady owner (I forget her name) knocked on the door with a new replacement TV which was quickly set up and working. I would like to thank her again for being so diligent.
As stated in the property description, everything needed was provided and in good condition. Often overlooked basics such as tea, coffee, sugar and salt were even provided which we thought was helpful. There is a good Tesco Express just round the corner so no problem getting essential supplies.
The parking was rather tight but not too bad as the car park was not full, however the parking bay is under a cherry tree which resulted in a deluge of sticky petals all over my car.
Best of all was the central location as this was our first visit to Chester and, although we knew it was within the city walls, we were pleasantly surprised how convenient it was for walking virtually anywhere.
The nearby Albion pub had reasonable beers but the WW1 food was a great disappointment (corned beef hash with virtually no corned beef) and fairly expensive for what it was. Still worth a visit though as only 100 yards away and nice ambience.
Mobile internet (i.e. GPRS/3G) reception in Chester is generally poor so wi-fi would have been a great bonus, but we found a number of pubs provide free wi-fi so this was not such a problem.
The only negative note was the bathroom which, although well equipped, had a carpet (never a good idea with damp areas) and a rather noisy extractor fan. Also the towels had a slight musty smell and probably just needed boiling.
Overall this apartment is strongly recommended for couples but, despite the sofa bed in the lounge, it might be awkward for more than two people.
