We booked a 2-night break at Shrigley Hall to celebrate a wedding anniversary; it is one of the few hotels in this group - Paramount/Barcelo/Puma - that we had never visited before, but we had heard of its reputation for good food. We were not disappointed. As LeisureBreak members, we got an upgrade to a Premium room at no extra charge. The room was spacious and comfortable, at the side of the hotel, which gave us a lovely view of the colourful Autumn trees. The receptionists were very welcoming and helfpful. The bar staff were very professional. Dinner was delicious with a varied menu and top quality food. Breakfast was as impressive.
Shrigley Hall is well situated for visiting lots of places of interest. We decided to drive to Bakewell via Buxton, a very "exciting" ride, going through cloud and even a snowstorm! Passed the Cat & Fiddle, reputedly the "highest pub in England".
We shall definitely be going back to Shrigley Hall in the future; the staff were all very professional and helpful. Steve Cook had been in the job of Operations Manager for only 3 days when we arrived, and he always seemed to be around, being very helpful and encouraging to the staff. Susan in the restaurant really made us feel special, she is a great asset to the hotel. All the reception girls were lovely, Zoe in particular was on duty most of the time and most helpful.
Shrigley Hall used to be a Salesian College for training missionaries; some of the history is in reception and I discovered a Salesian cemetery near the rear car park, which was very interesting. We need to go back for a longer visit.
