“Fantastic wedding venue! Class, quality and absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Myself and my husband were married at Rowton Hall on the 15th November last year. I cannot praise this hotel enough. Its a stressful time getting married and from the minute we came looking to the morning after the wedding they worked efficiently and flawlessly to ensure we were well looked after.
The hotel itself is incredibly picturesque both inside and out. Our wedding was Autumnal themed and the grounds compliments the colors perfectly. The decor in all the rooms is classy and modern with a traditional hint and beauty. Each bedroom is individually decorated to a beautiful theme and our guests were overall thrilled with their rooms.
We actually got engaged on a spa break weekend several years before at Rowton and never intended to be married there. However after visiting MANY other venues in the region we kept comparing to what we already knew was a beautiful venue, so made an appointment when passing and they were able to fit us in. They were able to accommodate all our wishes and plans in an instant and the atmosphere in the place is sensational, so we knew it right for us. The staff genuinely care about making your wedding all you want it to be. From every bar man to receptionist to master of ceremonies they all get to know you and go out of their way to make sure you have no worries at all. The day of the wedding was perfect, they set the venue up excatly as we had discussed including setting flower arrangements up for me and waiting for my delivery of favours that arrived on the morning! The place looked beautiful and we were thrilled. Particular mention must go to the incredible Tom & Keith, both wonderful, friendly and extremely professional individuals who really did make so much effort, they were there to steady my nerves when needed, with drinks when thirsty, letting us know what was next and how we were for time and really made the day for us. They were also very fun and a good giggle which made things so much nicer and made us feel they were part of our party.
Having eaten in the restaurant several times before (and knowing how superb it is) i was concerned that on the day the food may not be as nice as cooking for so many people. However it was delicious, every single person commented on the quality of the food that was delivered to tables quickly and perfectly. We had chips and sausage and bacon barms for the evening which weren't just any old barms they were beautiful.
I was so incredibly pleased with our wedding and I know that is 100% down to the service we received at the wonderful Rowton. We also had an incredible fireworks display in the evening which was arranged by Nemesis fireworks who are recommended by Rowton. I cannot stress how much this is worth it!! The grounds at Rowton make the most spectaular backdrop and the fireworks were more than we ever expected, they took our breathe away and made for an absolutely once in a lifetime experience and some stunning, emotional memories.
We will definitely be returning to Rowton and if i ever get an invite to a wedding there I will truely look forward to it. If you are considering Rowton for your wedding it is worth every single penny and WE CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH EVERYONE THAT WAS INVOLVED!

We have just spent a delightful evening at this hotel celebrating a 50th birthday,we could not have spent it any where Better, the hotel was modern,clean and so freindly. The staff could not do enough for us.we stayed here because we wanted to bring our dog with us and they made us and our pet feel so welcome.
The food was excellent,the service was quick but not rushed, the staff genuinely wanted to please and the little personal touches like a happy birthday message on the dessert plate was lovely.

We will deffinatley be coming back. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant .

Room Tip: We had room 50 on the ground floor with views out on to the garden.

Lovely hotel. The room we had had either been occupied preciously by a sneaky smoker, or was formerly a smoking room as it did have a bit of a tobacco-y smell, but it wasn't overwhelming.

Standard rooms are a touch small but have everything you need and are definately at the luxurious end of the market.

Breakfast was a continental buffet (croissants / fruit / cereal) but tea, coffee, toast and cooked breakfast was served to you. This was a bit disappointing, as despite there being lots of staff, they each had a duty (one brought teas and coffees, another took the food orders, a third brought the toast, a fourth brought the food), which slowed the whole enterprise down. If all the staff were able to do everything it might've sped things up (and my poached eggs might've been hot!).

Didn't use the spa as I forgot my cozzie but with a pool at 12 metres I didn't lose any sleep about not swimming!

A pleasant stay.

At 60 years old I have visited many hotels and this one just stands out as the best my wife and I have ever stayed at. My children booked a 2 night stay as a Christmas present for us and absolutely perfect. Staff so helpful and polite .Quiet and lovely spa and pool. The choice of food was excellent and the breakfast was freshly made and hot. Tea/coffee making in room was ample. Unlike so many places we have been to, the mattress was firm and we didn't end up rolling into the middle of the bed.Nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: We had a room at the end of a corridor and so nobody was likely to pass our room in the early hours...

After spending what seemed like an eternity driving round looking at different hotels to have our wedding we finally decided to have it at Rowton Hall and we are so glad we did.
Rowton Hall is a lovely hotel on the outskirts of Chester and what particularly attracted us was that they offer exclusive wedding packages where you have use of the hotel all to yourself.
In the run up to the wedding we made several visits to the hotel including an overnight stay and each time the service and food was exceptional so we had no doubt we had made the right choice.
From our first visit we thought the hotel had a homely feel and the staff there are an absolute credit, nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel extremely relaxed in the run up that everything would go to plan....which it did and some.

The day itself was amazing....everyone loved the venue, thought the bedrooms were amazing and food lovely. most of the messages we received spoke of it being the best wedding they'd ever been to and how good the venue was.
I cant thank Tony, Kelly , and Keith ( and the rest of the guys there) enough and would definately recommend Rowton Hall as a place to stay and definately a wedding venue.
