De Vere Cranage Estate
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Cranage
Reviewed October 10, 2010

The hotel is set in very pleasant grounds and initial impressions are very good. The hotel looks like a stately home, however as you continue to drive the car to the car-park you do realise that the extension is more in a Travelodge style. No character, just cram in as many rooms as possible.
The hotel is very much geared to the conference market. I was part of a conference and there were numerous others on during the 2 days we were here. Facilities for conferences are very good and i can see why they have been successful in this market.
The rooms were a good size, not huge but not small. The bed was comfy, the room was decorated sparsely but the decor was fairly modern and certainly catered to the trendier guests.
The food again was good, breakfast had an excellent choice. Although trying to flag down a member of staff for a pot of tea was virtually impossible !
There is nothing wrong with this hotel at all, equally there is nothing to jump up and down about either. It is a nice hotel which does was it says on the tin !

This hotel has made me join trip advisor as i felt it was previously hard done by on some reveiws. We got a great rate through travel zoo, however i would not have been dissapointed if we had payed full price. We upgraded to an executive room which was modern, spacious, had a flat screen TV with an Xbox 360 linked up for DVDs, we were provided with bath robes, wine and sparkling and still water from the mini bar.

As the rooms are newly built the walls are slight on the thin side but we found that it was relativly quiet at night even with a large wedding on.

We had food in the hotel bar wich was delicious, the portions are not humongus but there is plenty, you also get free fresh bread and dips when you eat, and at £25/person for 3 courses i thought it was cheap as far as hotel food goes. The breakfast was lovely and the ususal choice, continental, fruit, cereal, full english etc.

The lesiure facitlies were very clean and not to busy, and were well equiped with everything from a gym to the large pool and saunas etc.

The staff made us feel 100% welcome through out, from reception to the cleaners saying hello as you past.

I would not hesitate to stay again, and its not far from manchester airport either.

Was looking for a nice rural hotel on way back to Glasgow from Wales and came across this, unfortunately was taken in by the stunning frontage of the old hall without doing any further research was very disappointed to find it was the front for a Travelodge style hotel. As Travelodge's go it was fine reasonable room, food was ok etc but as long as this is what you're looking for. We were looking for something else and were left disappointed.

Our deal was for 2 nights B&B with Dinner on the first night booked through TravelZoo but if you get similar deal beware as it only covers 2 courses, if your not on a pre-paid deal I'd recommend you give restaurant a miss and go to the George & Dragon pub in the nearby village of Homes Chapel we had a lovely meal there much better quality and price than the Hotel offered, on our second night.

hotel does a lot of Wedding business and this was a problem on the Sat due to noise from the guests - very poor soundproofing in rooms and Hotel didn't appear to have grouped the guests together if the noise in the corridors was anything to go by!

Big plus for this Hotel was the leisure facilities which are free to hotel guests it doubles up as a outside Private Gym so as you would expect very good quality equipment spotless and well maintained, didn't affect us but should be noted that children are only allowed in the pool at certain times at the weekend - not sure about midweek.

Hotel is well placed for M6 so does make a good stopping off place to break up a journey or if flying from Manchester etc but wouldn't use it again as a venue in it's own right.

We booked a 2 night stay as part of a Travel Zoo deal at £30 per night B&B for a double room. Excellent price. The hotel did a good bit of up selling by contacting us a couple of days prior to arrival offering a VIP package upgrade for £20 which included bath robes, slippers and a bottle of wine. We decided to accept this offer and asked for a bottle of Australian Red if at all possible, not really expecting this wish to be fulfilled, but we were pleasantly surprised to see that was what was in our room on arrival. The room itself was spacious and clean
The hotel itself is a little remote but near enough to lots of places of interest, we spent the Saturday in Chester, about a 30-40 minute drive away.
The breakfast buffet was plentiful and the dining room less crowded than we expected given that the hotel appeared to be quite full based upon the sparcity of parking spaces available.
Criticisms are as follows:
1 Slight lack of parking when the hotel is full, we had to park at the leisure club one night which was a reasonable walk from the rooms
2 Our room was not serviced on the Saturday, we had pulled the quilt over the bed but not made it up and it was still like this upon our return. Neither was the bin emptied.
Disappointing in a hotel of this class but I can only put it down to human error by the cleaner responsible for our room. I was more disappointed that despite pointing this out on an online survey requested by Principal Hayley, I have received no feedback or apology. Shame, as this makes me less likely to re-book with the group.

Really nice hotel with friendly staff, however if travelling mid week with young children it is not great for two reasons.

1. Feeding children before 19:00 (i.e. bedtime!!) is not easy, as there is a very limited menu in the bar
2. Leisure facilities (swimming pool) are off limits to children except at the weekend. They could easily open up the pool for a couple of hours (say between 4pm and 6pm) which would make it better.

Had it not been for these two points I would have had no hesitation in making it 4 or possibly a five star rating. I would recommend the hotel, but not if travelling with young children.

we stayed here for a couple of nights b'n'b in august . this hotel has been updated but is still like a travelodge with thin walls . the main building is plush but the rooms are clean and souless . the grounds are very nice . its a mile and a half to the nearest town so prepare to pay through the nose for the food and drink so bring your own or dine outside . the breakfast is very good . good deals can be had online .

I was talking to the wife over breakfast at Cranage hall discussing how many stars on TA the hotel warranted. Our opinion was that we had no reason to leave less than 5, as we had no complaints at all - everything was fine.

Price- we paid £30 for a room with breakfast through Travelzoo, I think we got an absolute bargain. Obviously expect to pay more when booking normally.

Location - It is in a remote location, however the nearest village is 1.5 miles away and has restaurants,bars etc. We never went but ate at the hotel instead.

Food- Breakfast was really nice with no queues (10am Sunday).
The restaurant had a very limited menu (5 mains), due to this we ate burger and chips! Probably the nicest burger and chips I`ve eaten and certainly the most expensive at £15 per person.

Bar- Free pool and baby football, good service and surprisingly few people in.

Room- Free WIFI and safe. Everything clean and working and a comfortable bed. No mini bar.
