4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The rooms are comfortable, well furnished and very clean. The family rooms are great with a double and two proper sized single beds. At breakfast the food was excellent. All freshly and well cooked to order, no dried up offerings here. The vegetarian option was also good. The service was a little chaotic on our second morning, where orders were... More

We arrived here to celebrate our anniversary having been a while ago and having a great night! Before dinner we went to the room to have a rest to find only one towel? Apparently it is hotel policy to hide one in the wardrobe despite a two room booking?? The room was also chilly but not major, we also had... More

Booked a spa day for myself and daughter day before. For spa day with cream tea & choice of one treatment. We arrived 15 minutes before treatment asked to fill in forms re health etc , which was fine but then kept waiting for someone to show us round. Therefore no time to be shown the areas as quoted in... More

Have deliberated very carefully here as to whether to give this a 2, 3 or 4 rating. It could easily fall into all 3 categories. Overall out of 10 would measure it around a 6.5. We are a family of 4 visiting Chester attractions and Cheshire Oaks shopping. The research before hand attracted us here due to convenient location to... More

This is a review for the Spa & not the Hotel itself. I'd been to the Craxton Wood Spa in January 2014 for my Mother -In -Laws Birthday & I thought it would be a lovely treat for 1 of my cousins who was celebrating her 40th in August 2014. Just before our visit, the Spa had under gone a... More

Quiet tranquil setting. Even though its off a busy road. Be aware entrance to hotel is a sharp left after the premier inn, large lorries tend to park in front of sign for hotel which is off a fast road. Swimming pool, sauna and steam room are lovely, note last entry to pool 9.30pm out by 10pm. Friendly staff. Beautiful... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay here in August. Having recently had a Premier Inn family room it was a pleasure to stay in a family room that actually had space for a family! There was lots of room to move about and the beds were great. I'd give 5* for this aspect alone. We ate in... More

Booked overnight stay to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday. Had two treatments at the spa which we both enjoyed. Then a delicious dinner at the hotel which was four star prices but it was an extra special occasion. Breakfast was also good and the first hotel I have ever stayed in that had skimmed milk as well as semi-skimmed. I... More

Hotel is very well posotioned for Chester and The Wirral. Rooms although spacious are very dated and also very dark which was a theme everywhere in the hotel. I have to say the receptionist was delightful and very helpful and also the pool and spa was excellent I was particularly disappointed at breakfast. Having just come out of a very... More

We received warm welcome from Sam when checking in at reception. The hotel was very nice and not far from Chester zoo, the reason for our stay. We enjoyed the use of the leisure facilities which were very clean. Katie on reception was really lovely and couldn't do enough for us.
