If you are looking for a hotel in the Tarporley area with kids then look no further. The rooms are spacious enough for 2 extra beds and there is a nice pool. Ask for a room along the corridor from the bar area and you can sit in the evening enjoying a drink or meal with your eyes firmly on... More

Spent time at this hotel on a golf and spa break. Excellent staff service , good and spacious rooms and the evening meal and breakfast was fine. Definitely stay again and the golf courses - both the championship and premier course - were well kept, challenging and some great views of cheshire countryside .

Dreadful service by staff for a 4 star hotel, over £600 for a weekend spa & golf then to be treated to an undercooked breakfast and standard room even after paying for a signature room! WILL NOT RETURN!!

Spent a golfing weekend here. Hotel is pleasant enough. Food at both breakfast and dinner was good and services was fine. I suspect they are managing the restaurant throughput to overcome service issues. Room good enough though TV reception was very poor.

No addressing whatsoever of complaints or need of assistance. Restaurant and bar service poor due to staffing levels. A golf hotel where no-one could get the TV sport channel for Ryder Cup to work. One bar staff to serve upwards of 80 people for food and drink. An hours wait for a prawn sandwich costing £9.50!!

Didn't dine in hotel in the evening, but had breakfast there which was cooked to order and was served hot . Staff in reception and bar were very friendly and... More

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, each time I have stayed there, the staff are very pleasant the room and general hotel was clean and tidy, a very good experience on the whole. The one downside is that the breakfast is very slow!
