Whitworth Hall Hotel is set in its own grounds and boasts a deer park and lake. The hotel itself is an old house now owned and run as a hotel and part of the best western chain. The room was lovely. We paid extra to upgrade to a superior room over looking the deer park with a four poster bed.... More

Lovely country surroundings in a deer park with a lake. The room was quiet and clean but with no heating and only single glazing the room was cold. My wife had to wear her overcoat in the room just to stay warm. The reception seemed surprised when we complained but did supply a fan heater. The restaurant food and service... More

I had no preconceptions when approaching this place, all I knew was that it was going to be a long way to drive. We arrived late, but we had rung ahead and they'd promised to keep the restaurant open until 9.30, and when we arrived there was none of the poor treatment you sometimes get at hotels late in the...

Looks great from the outside, lovely park and lake. Room we stay in was also very spacious, but can do with a little bit of updating and the bathroom needs a bit of scrubbing I must say. Mouldy sealant and a over bath shower screen that was not working. However, must say the staffs there were all very friendly and... More

Ate one evening at the Brasserie where the food was excellent and the prices very reasonable (a great steak and the best chips I've tasted) Breakfast offered a wide selection and generous portions.

Our party of 6 family members had afternoon tea here today and it was absolutely scrummy! It is served from 2-6pm and is priced at a very reasonable £10 per person. For this you receive a variety of dainty finger sandwiches, clotted cream scones and a selection of mini cakes served with either tea or coffee. And the surroundings are... More
