Carden Park is an attractively located modern hotel set in undulating Cheshire countryside. The rooms are of generous size, some located in the main building (better views from rooms at the front) and some in adjacent small blocks. The rooms tend to be isolated from any sounds. The two restaurants serve very acceptable food, but the prices for drinks are, as is usual in such hotels, high.
The pool is pleasant, but can become crowded during school holidays. Children are admitted at certain times only. The exercise facilities are usually fairly empty. Be aware that local residents have spa membership, and the facilities may see a rush after work.
The Cheshire golf course has a local membership, and many prefer it to the more prestigious Nicklaus course The latter is longer, and I personally enjoy it. But do not take a buggy if you can avoid it, as you have to stick to the pathways out on one side of the fairway, which is inconvenient and reduces your appreciation of the holes.
The hotel building would not rate for architectural splendour. Also be aware that the hotel has a very high volume of corporate business, mostly during the week, but some also at weekends.
If you get a good offer, it still represents value.
