About Fontessa House

Chester is a city in northwest England. It has the only surviving rock-cut Roman Shrine in the Country. Called Minerva’s Shrine after the goddess of war, it is situated in Edgar’s field in Handbridge and is designated as a Grade I listed building by English heritage.


Fontessa House is a student housing in Chester that offers two types of rooms; En-suites and Studios. Students who choose en-suites will get their room fitted with a big comfy bed with under bed storage, a wardrobe, a study desk with drawer space and chair, and a private bathroom with a shower and WC. The kitchen and dining area are shared with other residents. En-suite rooms include Standard and Premium.


On the other hand, students who choose Studio rooms will get everything that comes with an en-suite room, in addition to their private kitchens. Kitchens are fitted with microwave ovens, 2-ring hobs with extractors, and Integrated fridges with freezer compartments. Studio rooms include Standard, Premium, and Accessible.


This Chester student housing has all-inclusive rent that covers all the utilities. It offers free Wi-Fi and broadband throughout premises, as well as free contents insurance.

Go enjoy the greenery and the ancient buildings at Water Tower Gardens, or compete against your friends in a game of pool or darts at Rileys Sports Bar. Enjoy live concerts at Alexander's Live, then drop by one of the diverse restaurants near you on your way home. Chez Jules serves fantastic French cuisine with a daily changing menu.

Overall very modern and clean accommodation with plenty of living space and super friendly staff. I definitely recommend to students looking for a fresh place to live:)

place wasnt ready and entry was delayed due to short staff. the people who was working had a huge delay on customers. Rubbish was still left in the room and bedding wasnt made when we have enter.This usually would be a bad review ut the issue was explained and we requested the key before it was ready due to the delay. They also offered the night free for us too. despite the rubbish and bedding, the room was clean, just needed dressing. Because of their initiative we was still able to make a night of Chester ad enjoyed the rest of our stay. The location was fantastic Only a 5 to 10min walk round the block or via a subway and you are at the liverpool arms. Parking was not free but the parking was not expensive either. there was enough santintary stuff to say they have done what they can to prevent the spread of Covid in the place and i would most likely stay in the same place again.

Was very surprised we stayed here as as not a normal choice due to not finding somewhere to stay as Chester very busy but it was better than most places we have stayed before and the price was even better very clean the air-conditioning was a bit noisy through the night but it done its job nothing that earplugs would sort out great location clean towels and toiletries supplied
