About Melanie Warburton
I worked on the board of a large company for many years but delighted in running the River House as a top end holiday cottage. So I decided to make it my full time job and dedicate myself to making it the best self-catering property in Chester. After nearly 9 years I'm an experienced provider of short stay holidays.
Melanie Warburton purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Melanie Warburton chose Chester
I would like the River House and Riverside Apartment to be as comfortable as your own house, if not more so. We like to think we have covered every little detail to surpass your expectation of your stay. My aim is to give you a taste of what it is like to live in the very best location in Chester in one of the best positions on the river. In the middle of city, busy by day and tranquil by night, our guests have left wonderful reviews about their visits and I'm delighted that I can provide an important part of a lovely holiday experience.
What makes this Apartment unique
Location, location, location. The river is literally in front of you. The boats pass by, the ducks waddle along and the salmon come a leaping in Spring. Every day there is something wonderful to see. We saw the property for sale from the footbridge and immediately fell in love with what is now, our forever holiday home. When you arrive, simply park up, forget the car, and enjoy all the benefits of the city centre within a 5 minute walk. Chester has plenty of festivals to enjoy. It is full of wonderful shops hidden in the Tudor rows, good restaurants, museums and great connections to North Wales, Liverpool and Manchester. The properties back on to a beautiful park with a wonderful miniature railway for children. Chester Race course is a 10 minute walk away, Chester Zoo and the Blue Planet Aquarium are a short drive away.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Idyllic, romantic location and immaculately finished and furnished!
Rented this lovely place for a family Xmas reunion. Beautifully decorated, clean, well equipped, great location, walk to shops, on the river. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough! Melanie anticipated our every need. Thanks so much for a very memorable stay - you even decorated with an Xmas tree!
Thank you Lucy. It’s great to know you had a wonderful Christmas at Riverside Apartment. I’m happy that we played a little part in providing a lovely spot for you to spend time with your family.
Thank you for being such a good guest. Hope to host you again next time you are over.
Perfect base for trip to Chester
The apartment was probably the best we have had for our annual reunion weekend. Spotless, warm, spacious, very well furnished. The welcome stock of tea, coffee, sugar, bread, butter and more was so, so helpful. Perfect location overlooking the river and just a few minutes from town. We wouldn't hesitate to come back. Absolutely no negative points whatsoever ! Thank you Melanie for being g such a thoughtful and helpful host.
My pleasure Vivien. Thank you for choosing to stay at Riverside Apartment and for being great guests and I hope to welcome you back again one day.
Lovely apartment in a great location
Lovely apartment, right on the river in a great location in the centre of Chester.
Hi Marc, I’m glad you enjoyed your stay at Riverside Apartment, catching up with family. Thank you for your booking and I hope to welcome you back again soon.
Having wanted to visit Chester for years, we eventually got there and could not have chosen a more perfect base from which to explore. The apartment is situated a very short stroll from the City, and its location at the end of a road accessed only by residents made it even more special as there was no traffic noise.
We spent a lot of time people watching from the living room windows - there was so much to see during the day time, particularly at the weekend. There were swimming races on the river one day, and we also spent a few relaxing hours in the sunshine listening to bands playing in the bandstand just yards away from the apartment. Importantly, the area became very quiet in the evenings.
The apartment itself could not be better, being spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and furnished with high quality items. The beds were supremely comfortable too, which does make a huge difference!
We holiday in this country frequently and can say in all honesty this is the only place we have stayed where we would not have changed a thing! All in all, a fabulous week.
