This is a charming, small hotel with beautiful and comfortable rooms. As the building is quite old, I was expecting something more or less outdated, but luckily this wasn't the case: room was nice, rather modern and generally pleasant. Also the bathroom was functional and clean. There was a free wifi in the room, and it worked well after you... More

It's a nice pub but the hotel is run as a separate entity. This means that even at the weekend it is impossible to get a drink there after 11.00 pm. The room was large and airy and everything worked. The breakfast buffet was a little disappointing. If you just want a room I'd recommend it. If you want a... More

We had a good stay but I suggest the staff need a bit more training in terms of hotel customer service. The attention seemed to be on the the dining guests not the hotel guests - don't be put off though, we stayed two nights and overall enjoyed our stay. It just didn't feel hotel like! We had a delicious... More

Firstly the good , nice bar and gardens and an excellent evening meal , Now the bad , very poor breakfasts both in quality and service plus our room was small and quite noisy despite being at the back. The Inn is in a very good location to visit tourist attractions in the area which is why we stayed.

A wonderful well managed and well staffed hotel, the room was excellent, very comfortable and considering the location very quiet. The food was the winner both for an excellent boozy lunch and a romantic evening meal. on both occasions the food excelled and the staff were personable, and what a pleasure the breakfast was with all the staff being very...

Stayed here to attend a wedding in Macclesfield and for that end it is a great location, easy to find and navigate around the area from. Check in was at the bar which is a well maintained area and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The general problem with the accommodation is the noise that can be heard... More
