This was our third visit here. We have stayed twice before as a stopover on the way from Kent to Scotland and we have enjoyed our visits. I did think it had gone slightly downhill this time but to be brutally honest that with more to do with the standard of the guests rather than the staff or the hotel! Crewe Hall itself is a beautiful building with a tree lined driveway leading up to it, it feels very grand as you arrive. The staff at check in were very helpful and we had two interconnecting rooms in the modern wing. Really the whole hotel is in the modern part (restaurant for dinner and breakfast, main bar and spa) but I would recommend spending some time in the garden if the weather allows. The garden is beautifully kept and really stunning. We were the only people out there on the evening we stayed which was a bit bizarre. The downside is really the restaurant. It cannot cope when the hotel is full. We tried to book for dinner and the only available times were 6.30pm or 8.30pm. We opted for 8.30pm and when we arrived the restaurant was packed. The harrassed staff warned us there could be a long wait for food. I don't know what the hotel could do to rectify this problem other than increase the size of the kitchen and restaurant but something does need to be done about it. The staff were incredibly kind and the restaurant manager seemed genuinely concerned that we had two children with us and that they would be waiting hours for food. He very kindly prioritised our order and we got food straight away so he definitely deserves a special mention for that and it was very much appreciated. Breakfast was very nice with plenty on offer but as I said before it was really the guests that put me off - eating breakfast next to a guy in a vest covered in tattoos with a red baseball cap on backwards will give an indication of the sort of thing I mean. Other than that everything was great and the staff do work very hard.
