My partner and I enjoyed afternoon tea today in a beautiful dining room with high ceilings, old wood beams and chandeliers. The tea consisted of a glass of pinot grigio charadonnay, a selection of sandwiches, fruit scone with butter/clotted cream/jam, a chocolate cake, a walnut slice, and tea or coffee .
The waitress was very efficient, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable when we asked about the hotel and house history.
The hotel was built as a house in 1903 and converted to a hotel in 1998. It is very attractive both inside and outside with neat grounds and room for a helicopter, which was parked on the lawn outside !
The toilets, both male/female were immaculate.
We intend to return for another afternoon tea in a few months as a treat for my partner's father and may book an overnight stay at a later date,
Would recommend afternoon tea to all.

Stayed for 2 nights while the hotel hosted a wedding that we were attending. The room was large and clean on the ground floor the bathroom was quite decent.
The wedding reception was excellent, very hot food and extremely well managed. The only disappointment was that we were told that there was no table in the restaurant until 9 pm, we actually had to stamp our feet by 9.30 as we still didn't have a table.
The hotel is in a good location about 3 miles from Knutsford, a very nice town with lots of pubs and restaurants.
Overall I would recommend the Mere Court and would definitely stay again.

i had a really enjoyable stay on the 14 th feb . On a arrival check in was very swift and polite, I had booked a four poster suite which i recommend , i found the room to be very clean and warm.
The package i booked was to include dinner, bed and breakfast, On arrival at the restaurant we were shown to the bar and menus were presented. I expected to be shown a set menu due to price of the package id booked, I even asked at reception just to make sure that the a la carte menu given was available to me because a couldnt quite believe it.I have eaten in many restaurants in many countries, and i have to say the food was really excellant i had the beef which was one of the best ive ever had, my compliments to the chef.! The cooked breakfast was very good ordered to the room arrived with everything you expect . Once again thankyou for everything, a true bargain..

We have been holding business meetings every fortnight at the Mere Court Hotel since July 2012 and it has been an absolute pleasure. The staff could not be more helpful if they tried and so we are extremely well looked after. The hotel offers a luxurious conference centre in addition to the meetings rooms in the main building and so there are several different options depending on the number of delegates.

We also held our Business For Breakfast Christmas party at the hotel which included a delicious 3 course meal and drinks for a very reasonable price. The food was of a very high quality and was served in a beautifully decorated conservatory.

Many thanks to Eloic, Carolyn and all the staff who make my life so easy when hosting the meetings. We look forward to continuing to work with you :-)

My family stayed at the Mere Court for 8 Nights. The hotel is a small and Charming, it has a Edwardian/Victorian feel and is beautiful inside. The rooms are large and the Decor has a Laura Ashley feel. The staff make this hotel 5 stars they are friendly and the service they provide is excellant. Gill who works in the restaurant in the morning is friendly and upbeat and a credit to the hotel. I can honestly say from the receptionist, chef,Bar Staff and cleaners the service and friendly welcome they gave was beyond none. I work in the travel industry and have travelled all over the world but I can honestly say this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Thank-you for a great stay!

Stayed here for one night, Our room was lovely very comfortable and very clean. We thought we would arrive late so didn't expect to eat here, but we were early enough for dinner the restaurant
was lovely and the staff were very helpful. There was a large party in eating but the waiter sat us at a small table in the window and made the night very special.
Breakfast was great with excellent service.

Room Tip: Room at the front had a lovely view.

We had a 2 night night stay here with Travelzoo to include bed breakfast and three course evening meals on both nights. The check-in was very quick and thorough and we booked a time for evening meal. The room was abosolutely charmimg and very spacious and bright. The bathroom had a shower and a jacuzzi bath which was a pleasant surprise. The bed was so comfortable and the bed linen very soft and fresh. Our eveing meal was served in one of the function rooms that had lots of old beams and high ceilings. The service was very professional and the food was amazing. Breakfast was also excellent. Buffet style for cereal, juice and pastries and then table service for tea, toast and cooked breakfast of your choice. We drove to Chester and used the Boughton park and ride at only £2 per adult return. Our second night's evening meal was served in a different room as they were catering for a private party as well as there being a wedding on in the very pretty conservatory. We still had first clalss service and the food again was delicious. We had the same waiter (Will) and he was very professional and charming. We did overhear one guest complaing about his food being a bit cold and the beef being tough but his plate was empty!!!!!....SOME PEOPLE. Breakfast the second day was all buffet style apart from tea & coffee, toast and how you would like your eggs cooked. It made the 2 day stay nicve a varied and there were several small cosy places to sit and relax and have afternoon tea. Natalie on reception was very professional and asked us if everything was to our satisfaction with our stay. We have no complaints whatsoever and would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a corner room which made it very bright.
