I had no idea what I had booked as I was on the way from Dover to Holyhead/Dublin and needed a place on the way. I was very pleasantly surprised. It is off a main road near Crewe and has ample car parking. The buildings are a mix of old and new. All in good condition, clean and fresh. The receptionist was very nice and greeted us in a genuine and warm manner. Our bedroom was spotless, well equiped and had wi fi. The bathroom was all marble, modern and also spotless. O dear!! There were 2 weddings on as we arrived and so I expected long delays and stressed, burnt out staff. But heck no. They were marvellous. The bar service was instant and staffed by two lovely friendly women. The food was surprisingly good. I don't expect Michelin star food for the excellent value this Hotel offers. What we got was fresh, perfectly cooked tasty food. The veg, all too often drowned and awful, were superb, the side sauces home made as was the Lasagne and the desserts. This is a very good sign indeed as I have had the most appalling meals in similar places such as this. The dreaded micro wave didn't get a look in in this restaurant...TG! Despite the weddings we had no problem at all with delays or bad/poor service or food. Full marks to the kitchen and the cheerful, great staff in the dining room. The lady at breakfast could not have been more helpful or cheerful. You must take into account the cost of the room and the cost of food when rating and review it for what it is. I paid a reasonable £70 for B&B for the 2 of us. I can't expect 5 star facilities in a 3 star hotel. This is a 5 star 3 star hotel...if you get my drift. We could find nothing wrong and toroughly enjoyed our stay.
