We are only 10 minutes outside the historical Chester city centre & sat in the trendy suburb of Hoole, next to Faulkner Street which has an abundance of independent shops, bars & restaurants & won “Best Newcomer” in the prestigious "Great British High Street Awards" .Our rooms are comfortable & all different, so there will always be one to suit you, whether you are part of a large family group or as a single person travelling for business or pleasure.We acquired the Ba Ba in 1987 & over the years have enjoyed sympathetically extending & renovating the house & it's original features back to its former glory.Our house was the birthplace of Leonard Cheshire VC on 7th September 1917 and after serving in the war went on to set up the charity now known as the Leonard Cheshire Disability, there is a plaque outside the house to commemorate this.

Guest house with great service
Stayed for 2 nights, the guest house was well maintained, clean, some low level traffic noise [I live in a cul-de-sac so noticeable to me] from the road at the front. I was going out early the first morning I was there the landlady offered to start breakfast 15 minutes early so I would be able to have it, and it was a good breakfast with plenty of choice. A 10 minute walk to the railway station, and a little longer to the city center. I was happy with my stay and would stay again.
