“Great escape in Cheshire!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Fantastic surroundings, property and staff. We stay here 7-8 weekends each year. seems to be always bust but never noisy. quite tranquil and peaceful overall. nice spa, pool and fitness area. Highly recommended as a relaxing place to get away from it all.

Upon first impression, this resort is wonderful. Very beautiful setting, modern and grand. I was with my mother who is severely disabled and there was ease of access throughout the building. We didn't stay over, however, but were attending an event for several charities. The room in which the Fashion Show/Auction was held was very grand and set out beautifully. However, being sat on the back table, everytime someone went out for a cigarette, the door did not shut behind them and no member of staff too the initiative to shut it so people off our table had to often leave the room to shut it because it was freezing. The food was quite tasteless and although the portion sizes were the perfect amount (not too big or small), I found myself leaving half a plate of food due to lack of taste. The event itself was a shambles, however i feel this was more to do with the PR company involved rather than the hotel itself, but on the whole my experience wasn't great. I would possibly go here again to stay overnight, but i wouldn't recommend holding and event here.

Dear Natasha G,

Thank you for posting a review following on from a recent event held here at The Mere Golf Resort and Spa.

As you quite rightly stated this particular event was not ran by ourselves. I will make sure that your feedback is passed on to the company who ran the event with us.

As you were very complimentary about our hotel, grounds and function room I do hope you that you will come back and use our wonderful facilities.

We hope to see you soon

I would give the Mere 4 stars but we were totally let down by an uncomfortable nights sleep having to sleep in single beds in a Ve spacious room too. Most good hotels have 2 doubles in a twin room, I know very few people who sleep in single beds these days even children. The building had been wonderfully renovated mixing red brick with contemporary. The staff were all very warm and cheerful too. It's just a shame that the most important part of staying the night was an uncomfortably small bed.

Dear Dogsheep,

Thank you for taking the time post a review for us.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise on behalf of The Mere Golf Resort and Spa for the disappointment regarding the twin mattress you were allocated whilst during your stay with us.

Unfortunately due to the versatility of the beds we are unable to rule out the single mattresses. All our Club/Mere twin rooms have twin beds (two single beds). Sadly space would be an issue if we provided two separate double beds in some of our rooms.

May I request if you do choose to stay with us again, I would recommend booking a double room as all the beds are super kings. We also offer inter-connecting rooms as well.

If you would like to discuss this further then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks for your feedback

Kind Regards

Lauren Yates

My wife and I have stayed at the Mere twice in the last few months. Both visits have been excellent but our stay last night exceeded our expectations further. The spa is really good and we ate in Browns with super food and great service. We upgraded to a junior suite which was superb. All staff friendly and very helpful. We'll certainly be back soon.

Hotel grounds were fantastic. We were met in the lobby by a very polite and well presented member of staff who offered to take us to our room. All the other staff we met were just as helpful and friendly.
Stayed in the club room 202. Room was lovely but very noisy as we seemed to be on the route to all other rooms and people passing the door didn't show any courtesy to other guests. We also had an adjoining room and there were a couple of young girls next door who were very loud getting ready to go out.
We probably retired to bed a lot earlier than them and we weren't awoken so that was ok.
Breakfast was good and check out was quick and easy. We had lunch in the golf bar and that was excellent.

Room was very clean, black out curtains worked really well. bathroom was beautifully arranged and the bath was lovely and deep and quick to fill.

Room Tip: You can either get a room overlooking the carpark or the grounds. If the view is a consideration ask...

Whilst visiting Chatsworth House to see the splendid Christmas decorations we decided to treat ourselves to a much needed mini break. Looking on Tripadviser noticed that The Mere Hotel and Spa in Knuttsford had good reviews and only around one hour from Chatsworth. A good opportunity to start the Christmas shopping at the nearby Trafford Centre which is only 10 minutes from the Hotel.

It was lovely to be greeted by Dave the happy, chatty and smiling concierge who escorted us to our room after a quick check in and room allocation from Helen a friendly receptionist. Our room at the back of the hotel which was on the lower ground floor with patio doors leading to a small patio , just what we had requested. The room was spotlessly clean, large 40in TV, a comfortable large bed, safe and plenty of boutique style lighting, also very well decorated. The bathroom hosted double sinks, over the bath shower plenty of hot water and quite impressive under floor heating, fluffy towels and the usual complimentary toiletries and again with boutique style lighting.

We both enjoyed an evening meal of wonderful fish and chips in the Club Bar, absolutely beautiful, would 100% recommend, the waiter who was Portuguese was absolutely brilliant, smiling, chatty with out being intrusive. A lovely atmosphere which was welcoming. Access to the bar was through the golf shop which was well stocked with all the major manufacturers with a very friendly and helpful assistant. Many of the shirts and jumpers etc had The Mere logo, if you like that type of branding. Many of the tables in the Club Bar over looked the Mere and golf course, a very pleasant outlook

We both a enjoyed a good nice sleep then to enjoy a hearty breakfast in Browns restaurant. Everything plentiful, good produce, well cooked. The only small niggle being that the plates being cold. Waitresses again friendly and smiling.

We enjoyed the well appointed Spa one late afternoon, again the staff friendly and helpful, the treatments prices not over the top. Spa was clean, changing rooms spotless with plenty of fluffy towels; we particularly enjoyed the Aromatherapy rooms and good sized swimming pool. The changing rooms were well equipped and was obviously well used by non residents. There are allocated times when children can use the facilities so you can avoid this if you require.
Unfortunately early evening we heard horrendous noise outside which was from thoughtless unruly guests in the room opposite, Dave dealt with the matter quickly and efficiently, everything was fine until 1.30 in the early hours when the same guests had a very loud domestic which again was dealt with immediately from the night porter. This has obviously no reflection on the The Mere Hotel, no one can predict the thoughtlessness of inconsiderate guests, the staff dealt promptly and professionally with the situation.
The Mere Hotel is a good base for visiting The Trafford Centre, Manchester Airport,
I can't rate the staff high enough, every member having a smile, a friendly 'hello', nothing being too much trouble, special thanks to Dave who goes the extra mile.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the mere and golf course others overlook a car park. We had room 003 which was o...

My husband treated me to a day spa break after having our first child 3 months ago. I was a little nervous as it was my first full day away from my little boy but everything from start to finish was exceptional and could not have had a more relaxing time. The team were very welcoming on arrival and to start off with i was the only guest using the thermal suite which did feel a real treat! The food was delicious and a good selection offered as part of the spa day. A special thank you to Bethan and Hannah for my treatments which were absolutely fabulous. Would definitely recommend!
