From start to finish the Mere court Hotel was brilliant. The service from Viccie on the desk was 100% efficiency, the room had the wow factor, the meal that night was delicious and the service was fantastic, breakfast lovely too! Couldn't fault the place well done!

This hotel is well located as a base for playing many of the premium golf courses in the area.

I stayed in the new build wing of the hotel where the rooms were large if a little basic, however they are competitively priced.

Breakfast was buffet, but of a good standard with eggs (however you take them) cooked to order. I cannot comment on evening food for regular guests as I attended a function, here the food was of a reasonable standard.

Ended up here by chance as i got "redirected " by another hotel who overbooked , & have to say it was a very pleasant experience! Staff was super helpful and despite my very late arrival they made sure i got dinner & helped with travel arrangements to my business meeting the next day! The hotel might need some touch ups but it is welcoming and pleasant! would go back if in the area!

Me and my other half went to a wedding here in August and stayed over after. Our first room was right by the wedding room so we asked to move as we thought it might be noisy if the party went on late (we're not that old, just had to get up early for stuff the next day, honest!). First room was a bit dark and tatty. The second was lovely - in the old part of the house. Very modern bathroom and nice view over the lawn. Service was really good and we had a lovely time. Breakfast was very good. We got the hotel for £85 due to being CityScene members through our work, which worked out cheaper than the wedding rate. Not sure I'd be happy paying full price though!

Thank you for the review. Whilst we do cater for a lot of weddings and functions we are also popular for couples or friends looking for a quiet night away. Maybe we could welcome you back to the hotel for a dining experience in our Restaurant next time?

We only stayed at the hotel for one night on our way from South Wales to Yorkshire. The hotel is set in lovely grounds, which unfortunately we did not have chance to explore as it was pouring with rain. Our room was very large with two double beds. The hotel is very much geared up for conferences, there were two taking place on the day we left. We ate in the bar area. The bar staff were very attentive. We would certainly stay again, although I would not consider paying the full price. The only problem we had was with the shower, which although was powerful the temperature was only warm even when turned up to the highest setting.

Room Tip: Our room was very large but had no outlook. Full price is very expensive. Look for a deal.

Although the property has a quaint charm and country-like ambience, the amenities are typical of any quality 4 star accommodation. Tucked away in Knutsford, its surprising close to Manchester Airport (15 min) and plenty of local attractions. There was a wedding event the night we stayed so somewhat busy, but the hotel layout works well for these types of events despite the coziness of the property. The rooms are very spacious and well-serviced. The flat screen TVs are 25 inches - perfect size for hotel rooms. And the breakfast is good value - cooked-to-order eggs with a decent selection of typical English breakfast accompaniments and fresh fruit. Well worth the stay - you won't be disappointed.

Mere Court Hotel standing in 7acres of grounds and gardens with its own private lake is an excellent venue for weddings,usually held at weekends,and for relaxing short breaks.
Staying at the Mere Court is like stepping back in time to an era of quiet elegance and excellent service
All the staff are friendly and helpful and go out of their way to ensure that everything is to your satisfaction.
Rooms are large and very comfortably furnished, a nice blend of turn -of -the -century elegance and modern conveniences:-flat screen tv, tea/coffee making facilities,telephone,iron and ironing board,hairdryer.etc. En-suite bathrooms have a jacuzzi bath and overhead shower.
The car park is a short distance away, approx.100 metres, from the main building but valet parking is available if required.
Meals are of a high standard, plentiful and varied.The massive breakfast is worthy of a mention - fresh fruit juices, jugs of cold milk,individual packets of cereals,fruit (tinned and fresh),croissants, rolls, pastries, plus the hot plate -sausages, bacon, tomatoes, baked beans. Eggs are cooked to order, as is the toast. Individual pots of tea and coffee are served when required. Again the service is faultless, friendly, attentive but never obsequious
A stay at the Mere Court Hotel is not cheap, prices range from £78-£150 a night depending upon the season etc. As an example, a mid-week stay for one night for 1 person - £78 room only, £88 bed and breakfast, £118 d,b b, but well worth it. For couples, the prices, pro rated, are a little higher. However,Mere Court does have special offers which can make a stay for a couple very affordable.
If you would like to have a glimpse of the past, of the grace, elegance and service of a bye-gone era then enjoy a short stay at the Mere Court Hotel. I certainly did.
