Chapel Chester Luxury Boutique Apartments,

Chester City Centre

By Jenny Schippers – 13th September 2020

Chapel Chester Apartments


Nestled in a quiet residential Chester street, behind the bustling city centre shops and restaurants, you will find the attractive 1866 converted chapel that has been lovingly and sympathetically renovated by its owner Janice. Chapel Chester is a simply stunning development of three luxury boutique apartments that ooze charm and sophistication whilst being incredibly practical and perfect for a short, medium, or long term stay in Chester.


Courtyard Apartment


On our weekend break, we stayed in the Courtyard apartment on the ground floor. Despite its close proximity to the city centre, the whole complex feels quiet and peaceful. The benefit of the Courtyard apartment, as its name suggests, is an excellent outdoor seating area. As we stayed with two children, this was a bonus space that they could safely play in and which also allowed us an area to relax in once they had gone to bed. We thought the touch with the heat lamps was genius and it gave us the opportunity to use the space long into the evening.


Little Touches


On arrival, we were greeted by a pristine apartment. Very clean throughout, high-end toiletries by Cole & Lewis, and some extra special touches that really made our stay. As we were celebrating our anniversary; Janice had left us a bottle of Prosecco as well as some sweets for the girls, these went down very well! There was orange juice and milk in the fridge as well as homemade brownies and carrot cake. These thoughtful gestures really made our stay feel very personal and for this, we were extremely grateful.

Courtyard Apartment Layout


The Courtyard Apartment consisted of an open plan contemporary lounge/kitchen area with wall-mounted TV, breakfast bar, and a very comfortable sofa bed that my girls slept very well on. Accessed by steep steps (not suitable for children), the mezzanine study area had a desk perfect for study/work purposes or as a quiet space to read.

Through a corridor with a small toilet room, wardrobe, and storage space brought you to the double bedroom with windows out onto the courtyard area. This calming space had an en-suite bathroom with a powerful rain shower and high-end fixtures. The bed and linens looked and felt luxurious and we all slept very well. The apartment had plenty of windows and it felt bright and airy throughout.


Added Extras


Some added extras that really set this place apart; Netflix, a huge bonus when traveling with children that wake up at 7 am! Also, an excellent coffee machine, strong WiFi, as well as a modern kitchen with a full-size fridge, microwave, oven, and dishwasher. Parking was available across the street in a manned secure car park at a cost of £15 for 36 hours (Saturday-Sunday) or the train station is approximately a 15/20 minute walk.


Chapel Chester Apartment Location


Situated on Albion Street you have direct access to the City walls within a couple of minutes walk; close to the Roman amphitheater, Grosvenor Park, and the River Dee. Access to the main shopping centre with bars and restaurants is quick and easy. All in all, Chapel Chester is a fantastic family-friendly luxury apartment option when visiting Chester. I would highly recommend this property and the price point sits similar to a good 4/5* hotel within the City but you are afforded much more space and access to amenities allowing you to be self-sufficient during your stay.


Thank you, we will be back!
