Nice design. Lovely bar and restaurant. Pleasant staff.Buffet breakfast was perfectly acceptable. Did have a dodgy pint of Timothy Taylor in the bar, though. There are 2 minus points against this hotel - the heat and the noise. I assume these are both connected. As it's an old building, I don't suppose they could have installed air conditioning, and the many halogen bulbs in the corridors and rooms give off an enormous amount of heat making the rooms and corridors stiflingly hot. The other problem is the noise. If you get a room at the front of the hotel, you have constant quite loud noise from the main road immediately outside. As there's no air-con, the windows are ordinary single glazed sash jobs which let a lot of noise through. 7/10 for this hotel. I might try it again in the winter

The National Trust's Quarry Bank Mill and stylish Knutsford are also well worth a visit. ... more less
