Its situated on a major flight path, there are 747's coming in to land from 5.30 am and its like thunder. I never normally leave reviews but I hated it here. We were promised we had a king room and it turned out to be a queen. They said we had a special room rate for the wedding but on... More

You don't get a second chance to make a first impression......and the first impression on entering the car park was great. Al Fresco dining area outside, a pond with fountain under the trees and well maintained gardens....neat, tidy and well kept....a sign of good things to come. The hotel has a lovely warm feel to it....informally relaxing. Reception staff were... More

This hotel has a warm and welcoming atmosphere from the minute you arrive. Nicely tended gardens and a good sized (free) car park. There's a patio area and water front, and the trees surrounding it are lit up in the evening. On entering reception we were warmly greeted by reception staff that explained everything we needed to know about our... More

Reasonable hotel with good location and free parking. Rooms are comfortable although most are on the smallish side and could use a refurbishment as they're styled as if it's the early 80's (now where's my mullet...). Gym is great, WiFi a bit slow but free, staff very friendly, dinner expensive but nice and the bar is a very pleasant place... More

Small room, good gym and pool, food ok if slow. For the expense this hotel really ought to do better. Too far out of Knutsford for a stroll into town, so once you're here you're stuck unless you drive (and don't drink). Probably aimed at the business and function markets rather than the leisure market.

We have just returned home from a celebration birthday Sunday lunch at Cottons, Knutsford , booked for 8.

I thoroughly enjoyed staying here for one night. We ate at the restaurant where the food and service was good. Enjoyed the spa and large swimming pool. The hotel is fairly near Manchester airport. The room and all areas seemed clean and the staff were excellent.

It is apparent that this hotel is doing good trade from wedding/birthday/hen/school graduation parties and business meetings. If you are not attending one of the former, avoid this hotel like the plague. On the plus side, the service in general is excellent and the rooms are comfortable. However it appears that the building is vintage 1980’s and showing its age... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Its always disappointing to receive negative feedback and especially when its really the age of the building that perhaps doesn't appeal rather than the service provided which as you said is excellent. Cottons has been established for 30 years, and has always offered great service and a first class location... More

4 of us visited the spa for a girly day out of the office. On arrival we were given a friendly welcome and tour of the facilities. We relaxed in the fantastic outdoor hot tub and helped ourselves to countless cups of tea in the relax area before our lunch. Lunch was a £15 set menu which was good value... More
