I don't often give five stars, but I truly believe the Plough deserves my rating. We were looking for somewhere to stay in the general area of Congleton or Macclesfield as we were attending a funeral on the Monday and wanted a Sunday night stop over. We found The Plough through TA so decided to book and what a good... More

Lovely location. We visted Biddulph Grange Gardens and Little Morton Hall. Even though our room (No. 5) was a bit "tired"' and had minor plumbing and electrical problems, we spent a very comfortable night. Our dinner was delicious and the staff were so friendly. Breakfast was also a real treat. Would stay again.

Nice fresh room. Well appointed and recently updated. Good friendly service motel type set up. Would have no reservations staying again. Not a TV watcher but could be slightly larger.

Very good food, good selection of real ales, excellent full English breakfast and very comfortable twin rooms. This hotel / inn was used as a stopover and safe parking for the motorbikes was essential. This place delivered on all accounts and would certainly use again.
