We stayed on a Sunday night breaking the journey from the south coast to Cheshire after seeing a review in the Telegraph. We were checked in by i-pad in a friendly bar before being shown to our superior room (5) right at the top of the building. .It was compact, full of atmosphere and oak beams. It was well equipped...

We have just stayed here for two nights and it ticks all the boxes. All you would want from an old country inn. Delightful rooms throughout, thoughtfully decorated, lots of nooks and crannies, open fires and log burning stoves, lovely food and friendly staff. Be sure to find the snug at the back which is a cosy room for playing... More

We arrived for our stay at The Porch House. It was a busy Saturday and there was nowhere to park so we left the car up a side street and went in through the front door. There was no signage as to where to go and we wandered into the bar where we checked in with one of the barstaff.... More

We stayed at The Porch House for Valentine's Day. Having seen a write up about it in my local paper I was spurred on to book as Stow is somewhere I've driven through and always wanted to stay. We stayed in room 3 up in the eaves and had a view across the roof tops. The room was beautifully decorated,... More

What a wonderful place. The Porch House is beautiful with many wonderful rooms downstairs, log fires, comfortable seats and lovely historic features. The restaurant was amazing with exceptional venison and a very good wine selection. We ate there both nights as the first night was just perfect. The service was outstanding. Every member of staff was on hand to assist... More

My partner and I stayed here at the beginning of Feb, although it was certainly very nice, I can't quite say what I paid £159 for. We had a superior room but it was very small. We booked our evening meal in the restaurant but without being warned we were moved to the freezing cold conservatory. Although a nice hotel,... More

We have been past the porch house a few times on trips to Stow and said 'we must stay there next time'. We booked a night with a meal for my husbands birthday. So glad we did, went for a superior room with a lovely roll top bath (room 3). It was cost and comfortable with a fab king sized... More

We were enchanted. The hotel has been superbly renovated without losing any of its charm, not easy to do. The public rooms are small and snug with log fires, theres a quiet room at the back with its own bar, passages all over the place, if you stay you may get to know your way round, but don' count on...

We had a weekend away to the Porch house for our anniversary having never been there before and not knowing what to expect... I literally cannot fault it at all!! We stayed in room 9 which is one of their feature rooms. We had a spacious room with beautiful wooden beams and stand alone bath which was perfect for our... More
