“Swanky and Stylish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

What a lovely, smart hotel. We stayed in a Mere room and it was spotlessly clean and had all the nice touches even with a cute meerkat sitting on the bed. The attention to detail is class.Even having fresh flower stands being changed over as we were eating breakfast. All the staff we spoke to in the hotel were pleasant and friendly, especially the restaurant 'under' manager. The breakfast was ok- no baked beans on show, but when I asked the waitress, she took my plate and went and put some on for me from the kitchen. We had a 3 course evening meal which was very tasty. The only down side to it all is the entrance to the hotel which is directly off a very busy main road- so be careful! But apart from that, its a hotel thats worth a stay if your planning on a visit to the area.

I booked this hotel as a birthday treat for my wife, We recently got married so to make it extra special I went for the queen suite.
On arrival, the reception staff where extremely pleasant and within 5 minutes of being in our room we received a glass of champagne to congratulate us on our recent wedding. The room was amazing with a huge lounge and comfy bedroom. The views were magnificent over the golf course and lake
We are both vegetarians, so I was disappointed (as usual) at the lack of options on the menu. I decided to contact the hotel a few weeks before and was delighted to get a reply from the Manager and then Head Chef offering to prepare a menu for my wife. This turned out to be an absolute treat with 3 amazing courses and a tray of chocolates as a birthday treat. We even got to meet the Head Chef Michael, at the end of the meal who wished my wife a happy birthday. The only negative of the night was the lack of atmosphere in the restaurant but it was Sunday I suppose and the staff were really helpful.
We had a lovely breakfast then visited the spa for a swim and treatment.
Overall this was a brilliant stay and we can’t wait to return (probably not in the same room as it was expensive)

Bought over night b&b with full use of spa all brand new (two years old but still top).

Staff attentive and knowledgeable.

Treatments quite expensive but what one would expect.

Beautiful grounds (especially if you like golf) close to knutsford for great food etc.

Came here for a spa day with my sister. We was a little concerned when we pulled up on the car park to see many expensive cars parked and thought it might be 'stuck up' but all our concerns were forgotten about the moment we walked in and greeted by warm welcoming staff at reception. We were shown around the spa by the lady on reception then left to relax. The whole day was a lovely experience and can't fault anything. Will be returning again soon.

First impressions on arrival we were checked in by very helpful reception team, we had booked 2 rooms and we were allocated both rooms together. The rooms were modern and spacious with a really nice bathroom. We had a ground floor room with a door that led out to a small patio area, only thing was the door wouldn't open. The thing that really hit you about the room was the smell of cooking oil and grease and because the door didn't open we couldn't even let any frah air in. We reported to reception as the smell was now on the furniture and our clothing, they told us they would report to maintenance. We went off to use the spa facilities in the now ledge the smell would be gone on our return. We come back to our room to get changed for our booked evening meal at 19.30 , the smell was still there, we called reception a again who informed us they had turned up the air conditioning and the smell should soon go ??? We arrived for our meal, we were told our table wasn't ready and would we mind waiting in the bar, the four of us sat in the lovely bar and waited, and waited and waited, finally at 8.45 we were seated.. Phew.. The food was fabulous however we were still ordering our desert at 23.00, we were all tired and because it took so long all my friend and I wanted to do was go to our room and sleep, sad end to our night. We returned to our rooms, I entered my room and guess what the smell was as strong as ever, it was sickly ... The next morning we rang reception before we booked out to ask for a manager to come and smell the room, he come in to the room and agreed there was a smell and apologised (little to late as we were going home !) we're told if we returned they would upgrade up to the next room up. Before we left we were in the club house as my hubbie was playing golf that day and noticed the kitchen, surprise surprise it was right above the room we had just vacated !, room 001.

Don't be put off by this experience, if the room didn't have the awful smell and if our meal hadn't taken so long the Mere is a wonderful hotel, very modern and chic, relaxing... We would go again as this may of been a one off.. My hubbie is back at The Mere today to play golf !

The staff were all very nice and attentive, the spa was bright and did the job... The golf ourse and grounds are eye catching..
