Edgar House is an award-winning luxury hotel in a Georgian property overlooking the River Dee and situated along Chester's ancient city walls, which were originally built by the Romans in 79AD.

The Roman Amphitheatre is a 5-minute walk from the hotel, while Chester Cathedral and the shops of the Chester Rows are also within a 10-minute walk.

Each stylish, "top-class" (The Daily Telegraph) room features a large bed with luxurious goose-down bedding, a free-standing copper bathtub, heated flooring, free Wi-Fi, an HDTV with in-room movies, and tea- and coffee-making equipment. Some rooms have river-facing balconies.
