I've stayed at this hotel more than half a dozen times and each time I've found another good reason to love it. It's very definitely one of my favourite hotels.
This was the first time I've used the gym. Wow! It's huge, well-appointed... and considerably better than the one I pay a small fortune for back home. Great view from the running machine too.
The hotel was originally a Jacobean mansion and it's had a colourful history since then. One of the fascinating things about the hotel is the fact that its history is celebrated throughout the building. From the black and white photographs of politicians and Royalty to the paintings and oak panelling, it wears its heritage on its sleeve. This time round I read a panel by a corridor window which had been barricaded back in 1913, when King George V was a guest and his hosts feared that sufragettes may throw stones if they spotted him. Fascinating.
Aside from its history - made all the more evocative by the oak smoke thrown out by the open fires - the hotel's restaurant is excellent and the service always competent.The hotel extension - all glass and chrome - is as impressive as the original.
One other interesting point is the cost. I paid the same price for my night at Crewe Hall as I have done, in recent times, for a similar stay at several markedly inferior hotels. It seems very reasonable.
