A lovely hotel with friendly staff and a great breakfast! We only stopped for the night and shopped at Cheshire Oakes which isn't too far away. I wish we could have stopped longer to use the spa facilities.

My wife and I spent one night here in one of their better rooms and we had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. The room, tv, coffee maker, bathroom etc.... were all great but the best feature of all was the staff. Anyone can provide guests with a nice room and lots of facilities but it is the staff that...

Visited the restaurant in this hotel, which had been booked for a funeral wake. The room we were given was spacious and bright, the finger food was delicious (apart from the rock-solid buns round the tiny amount of meat in the mini-burgers). BUT the price of drinks was beyond belief - remember this is not the Dorchester or Central London.... More
