The Boathouse and Riverside Rooms


The Boathouse Riverside rooms offer guests a unique stay in Chester.

Staying at The Boathouse is as close as you can get to River Dee (without getting your feet wet!).

Stay in one of our 21 tastefully decorated brand new rooms. With both double and twin rooms (with extra beds available on request) we welcome those coming for a city stay or relaxing break and also cater for those visiting Chester for professional reasons. Prices start at £95 per night and include everything you’d expect for a comfortable stay with a few nice surprises you might not have expected.

Guests can enjoy a picturesque breakfast in our unique pub/restaurant overlooking the river. In 2015 we added Chester’s first ‘floating beer garden’ to our already scenic outside terrace. We are proud to serve JW Lees beer, offer a selection of fine wines and serve a wide variety of tasty dishes all day every day.

Our riverside rooms come with allocated parking upon request for a small fee compared to city centre parking and Chester train station is just 0.6 miles away so accessing us couldn’t be easier.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Boathouse Riverside rooms.
