“Nice Place, but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2008

We stayed at the executive suite recently. The decor was superb, very posh and swanky! We loved the overall comfort and style. Great furnishings, although I would have loved to have a safety deposit box.

The staff were great, very friendly, helpful and accomodating. We only stayed one night to attend a wedding nearby. They helped us with taxi/transport to and from the reception venue.

It is located in a quiet little town, right by a lovely historical church. But after a night of fun and drinking this location was a nightmare literaly. At around 8-9am in the morning (Sunday) we hear non-stop church bell ring. So much for sleeping in.

Can't say much about breakfast. After all that racket we decided to skip it and sleep some more. Would have been nice if they serve breakfast longer.

We held our wedding here and were totally delighted by every aspect of the hotel, service and overall package.
It is a beautiful hotel - small and understated but extremely classy and the service is quite simply excellent.
All our guests - many of whom stayed at the hotel - were bowled over by the setting overall, the beautiful gardens, the room and the food - we received compliments about all these aspects for days afterwrds.
It's location in the very pretty village completes the whole experience.
If you want overstated, showy grandeur and a huge hotel then this is not the place for you. If you want a more personal, and very pretty, family run hotel with a touch of real class combined with excellent food and really excellent service then you will love it here!

I just cant believe what i have read about the bridge in prestbury. I think that these critics are very harsh. For one the food there is loveley, yes the menu may be a little out dated, but it is all cooked to a high standard. the service is second to non, with veg being served by silver service and bread being freshly cut at the table. Also i would like to mention that every time i have been there the resteraunt has been packed, especially on weekend nighs. The staff are warm and welcoming, especially the resteraunt manager. There is a nice a la cart menu that is offered, although i must agree it is not cheap, but by no mean is it over price, i think you pay for what you get. And for one reviewer to state that the potato is 'smash', not once have i ever been offered mash potato there, due to the fact it is not on the menu!!!! so im thinking that there reveiw is not so accurate after all. I would recomend you tried it for your self and make your own judgement, i for one will be revisiting!

We stayed in the Bridge Hotel for a weekend in Novemeber 2007 while attending a wedding there. From outside it appears quaint and old worldish and the reception area was very welcoming with a blazing fire, some comfy seating and a large selection of newspapers. We were just handed a key with nobody to take our bags to our room- which was down a steep flight of stairs- no mean feat when you have a suit carrier and a suitcase to carry. The room was small, pokey and unkempt plus the heating was on at all times at full blast and the heat in the room was unbearable to the point where we left both windows open at all times! The worst part was that the rooms appeared to be made out of the same materials as some sort of prefabricated building- the ceiling consisted of old grey tiles that wouldnt look out of place in an office building but are completely inappropriate in a bedroom supposedly decorated to "the very highest standards of furnishings and décor"- a direct quote from the hotel website. Compared to what we saw on the website I must admit I am of the impression that the photos on the hotel site must have been taken of rooms in a different hotel!Plus the walls were paper thin- we could hear every word of conversation from the people in the room next door and also in the room above us.
On the Friday we arrived we rang reception to request some room service only to be told it is only served at lunch and dinner time- as we had just arrived in from a long flight this was hardly a very accomodating attitude. We went out for dinner that night and when we returned a party was in full swing in the function room which was located just down the hallway from our room- we were awake most of the night with the noise from the party and our friends whose room was located directly above the function room fared no better- especially as once the party was over most of the party goers tramped down the hall past their room to go outside!
The wedding we were attending was held at the venue and it in itself was lovely- the food was very good however the function room must be the smallest I have ever seen- the wedding was attended by approx 80 people and even at that the room was full to bursting point. Once the music stopped the lights were turned on and the hotel staff told us all to move to the bar upstairs- this is actually the reception area of the hotel with a couple of tables to the far side of the bar- with 80 people in it, it was completely over crowded and uncomfortable.
We had been informed by a rather rude note in our room that the check out time was 11am sharp and anytime after that would incur a 25 GBP charge. Considering that we had taken over the entire hotel for the wedding the night before and every room had been taken by the wedding party I felt this was a rather harsh stance for the hotel to take- after all they were encouraging in keeping people in the bar as late as possible and yet they wanted everybody out by 11 am the next day.
All in all a terrible experience- the hotel is far from luxurious, staff were rude and unaccomodating, the rooms were poorly fitted out- I would never recommend this hotel to anybody.

I've stayed there several times with my wife.
The village of Prestbury is right out of the history books, but next time I will stay somewhere else. The hotel staff was not the best and walking through the restaurant with your bags while there is a party going on, which seems to be very night, really stinks because no one gets out of your way.
I would recommend staying in the newer part if a party is gong on.
We didn't even eat there because we learned our lesson form the last couple of times. nThe food and staff are not good.
There are a few restaurants in town that are much nicer except if you run into their closing times forget about being offered coffee or dessert.
One last thing about the Bridge is that it is very overpriced for what you get.
Not even breakfast during the weekdays for 115 Pounds a night.
way over priced for the very little value you get.
Other than that, the village is splendid.

I took a party of ten here to celebrate my Parents birthdays. The table was for 8pm we did not recieve our main courses until 9.50pm. When we recieved it it was cold and overcooked. The "new" potatoes were from a tin, and the "mash" potato was 'Smash' potato.My steak was over cooked and burnt around the edges and served cold. Two members of my party suffered from stomach aches the next day too! The meal cost £450 and it was the worst meal I have EVER eaten in my life. Many airline meals are better than this!

The only good thing was the beautifully presented table and the very friendly waiters - but then you cant eat them!!!

STAY WELL CLEAR FROM THE BRIDGE HOTEL RESTAURANT!

My wife and I visited The Bridge Hotel for dinner for the very first time last week on the strong recommendation of many of our friends.
We both found it very difficult to choose a meal as the menu was so extensive, in the end my wife chose the brie & cranberry tartlet followed by dover sole(presented & filleted at the table) and I opted for the king prawns & scallops followed venison(served perfectly pink).
We thought that both the quality of food and service was the best that we have had in a long time,the unobtrusive service and the little extras like the exquisite homemade bread offered,sliced and served at the table not too mention the appetiser of continental meats & olives complements of the chef all added up to a truely memorable dining experience.
The winelist was both extensive and reasonably priced and probably had something to suit everybodys taste. I was tempted by the Cristal & Chateau Petrus but in the end I settled for a glass of the house champagne and a bottle of Australian Shiraz
I would definitely disagree with the 2 previous reviews and strongly recommend this cheshire establishment as one of the finest in the area
