On Friday we had a thrilling time going to the laundrette to do the washing and a trip to the local shops. After that we had a walk through a local park. Nice and sunny but cold.
Saturday we went to Chester. We had been there last time but this time had a long walk along the river and then onto the wall. Saw a boat going through the locks onto the canal. The man was controlling the ...
Back down the motorway on Thursday to Ellesmere Port where the Waterways museum is. I guess you have to like boats, especially narrow boats, to enjoy a day out here. Just like yeaterday the weather was kind n the morning, but by 3.30 it was getting dark and cold.
still, we had a good look around the museum and spent about three hours there. Lots of things to see and in summer there are boat trips up the canal.
A good day out.
... space. He paid his workers well and was the first to give them 6 days paid holiday a year. He took the whole workforce and their families to Blackpool and to Denmark on a trip to see the Danish factory after the merger.
We were gong to spend about 30 minutes there having a drive around, ended up spending 3 hours there. It is a ...
On Friday it was misty (foggy) all day so not much was achieved. Went to a couple of shops and got some more clothes and some cushions for the van but that was about all.
Saturday we went to the Anderton Boat Lift, which was only open because they are running Santa Specials boat trips, which we went on. We had a sing along with Santa and his wife and one of his Elves, three kids and their Grandparents. Had a ...
... school on an excursion with a Roman soldier in his gear leading them. He was quite funny as he was barking orders like they were his soldiers, they had plastic shields and swords and looked very serious. We then walked the main original street with its mix of old, older and much older such as Tudor buildings dated in the 1600's, lots of people and a market atmosphere with Xmas stalls. Next stop is Friars ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Green Bough Hotel Chester
We read about this place in an old Fodors and were surprised to see how much better it is today. The hospitality was wonderful, breakfast great, and rooms luxuriously appointed.
Simply the best
We stayed at the hotel in February and found that we could only compliment the owners on everything from the first greeting, the beautifully decorated rooms , the lounge you felt at home in and then there was the food. Wow! Impeccably served and flavour bursting from every course a wine list to die for and deserving a Mitchellin star rather than 2 AA rosettes. A truly relaxing place and worth every penny. We will be back sooner rather than later.
Just a most perfect hotel - one of the best I have stayed in anywhere in the world. Fully deserving of all the awards it has received.
My husband and I stayed here in September 2004 and our experience was absolutely wonderful. I couldn't believe how beautiful and comfortable our room was. And the food!!! It couldn't have been better. Janet, Philip, and Wendy were so accomodating and helpful that our visit was perfect. I would stay here again, for sure! Every time I think about our stay, I just have to smile.
Hyped up B & B
Premises clean and tidy, however very disappointed when i was shown my double room (standard) in the main lodge. It was on the top floor, no heating on, carpet worn, tiny bathrooom and generally not of the high standard i had expected. Other rooms may have been better. The suite next to me where my parents stayed was fine. When i complained to the owner he was very offended and did not reply in a proper manner. I was shocked with his reponse. I also found it poor value for money - just a hyped up run of the mill B&B.
The most amazing small hotel that you will ever visit
My boyfriend and I spent our third year anniversary at The Green Bough and from the moment we walked through the door the staff were extremely helpful, chatty, polite and cannot do enough for you. Anything that you want they will do it for you, they advise you on where is good to go, on how to get to the city (which isnt far at all). Every part of the hotel is spotless and all the staff are just brilliant, they are so friendly and enquire into how your trip is and what you have been doing, they make you feel right at home. I would reccommend this hotel to anyone who is going to chester and can assure you that you will have a great time there..
Our anniversary weekend away was made even more special, by the suroundings and staff of this wonderfull hotel.
The food was nothing like we'd tasted before.
The hotel was spotlessly clean, well decorated, comfortable and very relaxing.
The staff were helpful polite and very knowledgible about the produce and the local area.
There was only one small thing that could have been improved, we were lucky enough to have a very hot weekend and there is no air con in the dinning room, something which I hope they rectify.
A small little treasure in a wonderful city.
No children ... No smoking ... No mobile phones ...
The Green Bough is a quality small hotel which boasts genuine 5-star service. Nthing is too much trouble for the staff. Our stay was made even better by the hotel's strict policy of no kids, no smoking and no mobile phones! However, it suffers from being located on a busy road approximately one mile outside of the Roman Walls.
The most beautiful hotel in a beautiful city
The city of Chester boasts the Roman walls, the historical Rows, a spectacular town hall, a truly beautiful cathedral and ... the Green Bough Hotel. And what a little gem of a hotel! While it is located along a road of sub-standard B&Bs some 1000 meters from the walled city itself, its sublime decor, rich furnishings, spotless cleaniness, efficieny/friendly service and outstanding food are unparalleled in a city not known for providing quality accommodation/food nor value for money. It is a credit to Chester ... now if only someone could do something about the litter and dog excrement which fouls the 1000 meter walk to downtown.
Green Bough Hotel
A most tastefully decorated and superbly run small Victorian hotel, within 15 minutes walk of Chester city centre. A heaven from the stresses of modern life - no children or smoking allowed and mobile phones are not permitted in the public areas!
The food is excellent +!!!! Proprietor and head chef Philip Martin worked at the Savoy Hotel in London. Vegeterians are very well catered for with a choice that changes daily on both menu's.
