“Comfortably Run”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

My wife and I stayed at Pickmere so that we wouldn't have to return home late at night after seeing The Australian Pink Floyd Show at Jodrell Bank (hence the punning review title). We were made to feel welcome on arrival, although for us it was just a case of 'dump the bags and go out'. We returned after midnight where we both had an excellent night's sleep. The breakfast, made with locally-sourced ingredients was excellent. Would highly recommend, and if there's a decent act on at Jodrell next summer then we will definitely return!

Just off the M6 at Knutsford but a world away from service area accomodation, this 18th century manor farmhouse is a pleasant place to stay. Nice friendly welcome and lovely room with character without being overly twee. Good breakfast too.

I have stayed here three nights one week then four nights the following week.
I received a very warm welcome on both occasions and cannot fault the high quality and great attention to detail in all respects.
If you want a quiet haven from working all day this is it.
Thanks for everything.

My wife and I like to take weekend breaks in unusual hotels in interesting places. We were attracted by Pickmere Country Guest House which we learned is an historic Georgian farmhouse convenient for the sites of mid Cheshire and Chester. We stayed on 17th and 18th May and were not disappointed. Chester is wonderful, this area of Cheshire offers lots to visit and the guest house is located in a peaceful setting near the quaint town of Knutsford. We booked an £88 per night superior room which was beautifully appointed. The service was attentive and friendly and the breakfasts ample and freshly cooked, so for £44 per night each we got a lovely room and delicious breakfast, which is great value. Highly recommended.

Having read all the rave reviews on here, my partner and I were disappointed with our experience at the Pickmere. Our room was comfortable, with beautiful views, but at £88 a night I expected a much warmer welcome - and please, please put some shampoo in the bathroom! I wasn't bowled over by the friendliness of the lady in charge, who made a quip about us making sure we "tiptoed back in" after returning from a party we were attending locally that night. Breakfast was lovely - but not sure how the hotel can justify this kind of price tag.

Felicia-Pickmere, Owner at Pickmere Country Guest House, responded to this review, May 29, 2013
I am pleased that the guests enjoyed the accommodation but surprised that they found the owner unwelcoming. As with all guests they were personally taken to their room. We usually ask guests what they are doing in the area and when told that they had come for a party Felicia did indeed say something along the lines of "tiptoe back in" but this was tongue in cheek and certainly not meant seriously.
There is a large bottle of shampoo/shower gel in every bathroom.
