Stayed for one night for my partners birthday. We decided to have afternoon tea before unpacking and heading off for a swim. No staff in sight, in the end we had to ask at reception. Sat outside and waited about 20 mins before the receptionist came to take our order. Once it arrived it looked and tasted lovely. Not worth the money but ok. (Won't be having that again). Spa area is excellent and the staff explained how it all worked. Rooms were clean and comfy. Evening meal was nothing to write home about. Was expecting more especially since the menu sounded gorgeous. The steak and chips were dry! Wasn't worth £80 and not sure who gave him his mitchilin star but they need to check it out as its more harvester, the only mitchilin bit is the price. Breakfast on the other hand was gorgeous!!! Would I stay again? Yes, as long as it was on special offer. Would I have my dinner here - nope, get a taxi into Chester would be my advise.
