We were looking for a Romantic getaway and I checked out B&B's that are located in Chester. The Inn Victoria caught my eye. They have a very nice website that gives you a very good idea of what to expect and I have to say that our stay exceed my expectations in every way.

Our hostess Julie was there to greet us and not only did she recognize my name but she remembered that it was our anniversary. We felt like old acquaintances immediately as we discussed England and some of the areas we both knew. Small world, we agreed.

Our room, the Princess Beatrice, is the least expensive of their rooms. I know, it’s our anniversary, why was I economizing? Ah well, this is one place where even the least expensive room has charm and amenities to spare and the website had assured me it would be comfortable. The room itself is small but there was plenty of room for the two of us. As you enter, the queen bed dominates the space and the covering is a luxurious red and gold. The headboard is brass and there are lights on both sides of the bed for reading. Only Al, however, got a night stand.

I sat in the comfortable chair to use my laptop and the adjacent antique marble top bureau to hold my cup of coffee. There is Wi-Fi throughout the house. The room has lots of natural light from three windows. The walls are covered in floral wallpaper and the curtains are lace.

We have a wardrobe to hold our clothes and our bathroom is across the hall. So that we did’t shock our neighbors, we were provided with two robes. The room is air conditioned but does not have a TV.

On the first floor the public rooms include a parlor, a dining room, and also a guest area with a computer, free coffee and tea, and a fridge with soft drinks and water at a nominal 25¢ charge. There is a small area with a couch and chair and a TV with lots of DVDs to watch. There is also a decanter of sherry if you care for an evening drink. A tray of brownies was put out in case you get the urge to munch and after watching TV; Al did have the urge.

Julie was more than happy to show me three of the rooms whose guests had not checked in yet, they have 7 rooms available. All of them were drop-dead gorgeous and made me wish I had thrown caution to the wind. One had a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower and the other had a claw-foot tub in the room and a fireplace.
They were both huge and had decks out the back. On the third floor, there is a two-room suite that also has a magnificent bathroom and a grand bed. Don’t get me wrong, our room is cute, but these are exceptional.
