“Pleasant 3 star hotel..”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

We decided to join my wife's parents who were staying at the hotel for the weekend during which there was a 'Glen Miller tribute orchestra' appearing. We stayed for just one night and it was a pleasant stay. Despite other reviews, we found the staff all very pleasant and very patient with their elderly clientele. There are areas of the hotel that need some attention - some carpets are in need of cleaning/replacement but generally it's a nice place with character. We were upgraded to a signature room which was quiet, well equipped (flat screen TV/DVD Player/fridge/king size bed) and we were very happy with it. The evening's entertainment was good although the restaurant is very big - more like a large entertainment venue with 'functional' tables/chairs than a nice restaurant - but it's ok! The food is quite nice and well presented and our waitress (Sophie) was lovely!
Drinks are quite expensive - £9 (yes, £9!) for a large glass of wine (sauvignon blanc) and £3.70 for a pint of bitter (the tap says it's Marston's pedigree but it sure didn't taste like pedigree to me and I know my beer!).
It's worth pointing out that Warners Hotels cater for elderly people, we are in our early 50's and felt incresibly young here - I would estimate the average age of the guests was 75 or so (although the Glenn Miller act may have attracted an older than normal clientele), this did have its advantages - the swimming pool/jacuzzi/steam room etc were all empty!
Overall, it's a reasonable 3-star hotel in a nice area (worth visiting Chester) and I would visit again depending on the entertainment and if I could get a good deal!

Room Tip: ask for an upgrade to a signature room (or a suite if you can!)

I booked this twixmas has a surprise for my wife, I upgraded to the ROYALE room and was not disappointed at all. Upon arrival I was informed that I was a member of the concierge club which entitled us to privalges that we surprised at. The food was good and entertainment was brilliantly performed by the entertainments team and visiting artists. We had a very good time and fullt enjoyed the break, Would recommend visiting.

Room Tip: We whole layout of the rooms is good with views to the front and rear of the prmises

recently booked into this hotel with my wife as we were celebrating our anniversary. We were invited to enjoy a wecome drink in the coutyard bar. The barman serving the wine asked us as we entered if i was with my girlfriend or secretary. seeing that i was stunned and shocked by his course and impertinent remarks--he then stated" People only bring their girlfriends, secretaries or chauffers here". my wife and i wondered whether we arrived at the right hotel as we did not want to be associated with an hotel with such a scandalous reputation. We left the bar and i sought out the duty manager. She listened to my complaints regarding the uncouth reception. She said that she had had several complaints about this barmans behaviour and would look into it and get back to me. She did not get back to me needless to say.
I would have thought that Warners would have been very protective of their reputation but it does not seem so. The General Manager was on his day off but never got in touch with us either even though we were there for 4 days.
Needless to say that my wife and i did not fill in their customer quality questionaire on leaving as nothing would be done about our concerns or otherwise.
With the exception of barman and the totally ineffective duty manager the other staff were very nice and helpfull.

Booked a special weekend for our 25th wedding anniversary. Having stayed at Nidd Hall previously we had an idea what to expect.Unfortunately Alvaston didnot live up to our expectations. We Payed extra for a Royal room, The decor was lovely but the cleaning could have been better. We went for a Abba weekend, we were very surprised at the age of other guests. Infact being late 40s early 50yrs we felt quite young. The brochure portrays a younger clientele however that was not the case with average age late 60's onwards.
The one highlight was the home entertainment team and Iain the compare who was fantastic. thanks to them. Would not stay again.

This is the second time we have stayed at this Hotel, the first time just with my wife and, as we enjoyed the experience so much, on our second visit we invited two other couples to come with us, making a party of 6 in total. The main reason for our stay was for "The Beatles experience" as we all all Beatles fans. It did not disappoint - the hotel itself is super being a Grade II-listed Victorian Hotel in nice grounds and having a 9-hole golf course and driving range - one free round for every guest. We found the course interesting and challenging. The rooms were quite small and the one we had was over the kitchen which was not great, however they were clean and tidy and adequate. The food was very good - you eat in the same room as the show room which was actually quite nice as it saved having to worry about finishing your meal and finding a seat in the show room. The service was good overall however on the first night our waitress simply disappeared for ages - apparently she had been called in to see the manager and just failed to return. Other waiters had to cover. The day trip to Liverpool (part of the Beatles Experience) was excellent both times with very interesting and knowledgeable guides - highly recommended! The evening entertainment was first class - the in house entertainment team were great and the Beatles tribute band were super. Well worth a visit

Just returned from a three day break at Alveston (Fri-Mon) and we have had a great short break. The food was absolutely delicious, it was hot ,beautifully served and a good variety. We have stayed at other Warners and the food here was probably the best we have had. The waiting on staff were very efficient and pleasant.
We were upgraded to a Signature room,as the rooms we had booked were being refurbished. This was a very nice room,but the fridge was missing and the patio doors would not open. Small things but if I had paid the going rate for the room would have been slightly dissapointed. The room was spotlessly clean.
The entertainment was very good especially Sat and Sun nights. Sat night was Neil Diamond tribute and he was superb,performing for about an hour and three quarters. Sunday night was the house team and they were good too, especially the man on the organ,and who also played piano,he was hilarious! He had a good working relationship with the compere and we had a good laugh at the "double act".
The negative points were mainly the carpets in reception and surrounding ground floor public rooms,they are well past their sell by date and have a not very nice musty smell. Also this is a cabaret diner venue,so you keep the same seat all night. The room itself is fine but for some reason we only got tablecloths on the table on Sunday night. I have never experienced this in any other Warner venue,I suppose it's a cost cutting thing.
We did not try out the pool,golf or spa so am unable to comment on these but did hear the pool is excellent and it is in a separate block at the bottom of the grounds.
We had an excellent afternoon tea when we arrived that was quite reasonably priced,I would say the drinks prices were about average for a venue of this type and judging by the amount of wine on peoples tables they weren't put off by the price.
All in all we had thoroughly enjoyable time and would not hesitate to return.

We have stayed here for the last three years as we love this part of the country.

Unlike most of Warners other hotels this is only a three star hotel so the rooms are a bit smaller and less comfortable than some of the other Warners sites; although there are some larger luxury apartments on site if you want one, but even the chalets were still very clean and satisfactory, we stayed in a chalet opposite the pool.
The quality of the rest of the site was excellent.

The food was very good and the evening entertainment was excellent, I have no complaints about the cleanliness and service what'so'ever and would come here again anytime.

There is a nine hole Golf Course on site with a small stream running through the course and is quite a challenging course for a relative begginner like me but very enjoyable.

All in all a great break in very nice surrounds, with absolutely no complaints whatsoever.
