Visited on 28th for a meal with mum and dad who stayed over as they live in Disley and mum has been unwell. The bedroom they were allocated was fabulous very clean and spacious. Our meal in the restaurant was great , staff always attentive , food great. Atmosphere very friendly , and a great place to take friends and family. Credit to the management for running such professional ship. Great experience, we will be back in January for another meal.

We are staying here for 2 nights and the room is superbly comfortable with a great bathroom, lovely furnishings and a fantastic bar and restaurant downstairs. We have stayed here several times before an the service has always been excellent. Good value for money and highly recommended.

A lovely welcome by efficient and friendly staff. The rooms are all themed and decorated to a high standard, good quality toiletries. I particularly liked the fact that the room facilities had been thought through, the furniture, mirrors, chairs and electrical sockets were in the right places. A particular problem for a frequent traveller is sufficient and easily accessible sockets to charge phones, laptops etc not to mention a comfortable area to plug your hairdryer in. Attention to detail makes all the difference.

Stayed one night recently with 2 colleagues. All of us had good rooms, nicely decorated with nice bathrooms. Had dinner in the restaurant that night which was very good (even my 2 French foodie colleagues were complimentary). Price included a full english breakfast next morning which was again well prepared and of generous proportions!
Will definitely stay there again if in the area.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are at the front, right on the road which was a bit noisy from very early morning...

My wife and I stayed a couple of nights whilst working locally and were fortunate enough to stay in a large family room in a newly refurbished hotel which has been updated to a high standard, very capably run by Carl and Jane Owen.

I am not sure how we picked this hotel, because you would drive by it and not give it a second glance: must have been the good reviews in TA! It also took some work to find out that there were rooms available, but the bedroom was one of the best that we have ever stayed in at a very reasonable price. There were 4 beds in the nicely furnished room, an excellent bathroom, plenty of space to work in, and a decent flat screen tv. The other rooms appear to have been refurbished to the same level, but were a bit smaller than the "Ball Room" that we had.

The restaurant offers good food at reasonable prices with hot food served by young and attractive staff who always seem to be on patrol to take orders, clear up and ensure that you do not have to wait long for anything, even during very busy meal times. You almost certainly have to book a table as it is very busy with quite a number of locals coming to eat.

A very pleasant and restful stay.

Room Tip: The restaurant seems to be busy throughout the day at weekends, so do book a table if you want to ea...
