    We stayed overnight to break a journey, and found the rooms large, comfortable and well furnished. It was a pleasure to be in the bedroom and - for the amount we paid - the hotel was good value.

    The breakfast waiting staff were inattentive and we had to call someone to give our order. Everything was fine after that and the staff were courteous throughout.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The views, good food and the well laid out, large rooms make this a surprisingly good hotel for a relaxing stay.

    A bit cut off although you can walk to Tarporley.

  • Single
    6.6

    The room was very nice and comfortable. Also very scenic

    i found the staff were not very welcoming. Confusion around dress code for dinning room. In hotel information it states no jeans or trainers. Yet I was turned away because I was wearing fit flops, not that my collegue and I were wearing jeans.

  • Couple
    6.6

    The bed was great. Giant King size and great quality mattress

    Poor service. At various times in less than 24 hours, it was difficult to attract the attention of the staff. Twice there was no-one on reception. Both times I called the phone wasn't answered. In the restaurant at breakfast getting served wasn't easy. It was a shame because everything else was pretty good.

  • Single
    8.2

    Good facilities - golf,Spa etc. Room size very spacious and clean. Food very good in the restaurant

    Occasionally had to wait for staff to appear on reception and in the restaurant - however they were very pleasant.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Staff at the hotel were great. I wasparticularly impressed with the night porter who arranged a taxi for me to get back to the hotel when all other attempts failed. Very nice room with balcony.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The views and grounds were lovely. The majority of the staff were very helpful, efficient and friendly particularly in the bar and reception.

    It is not too well sound proofed, our sleep was disturbed by banging doors and large groups of male golfers who were a bit too rowdy and inconsiderate of others.

  • Couple
    9.2

    Loved using the pool and sauna facilities and fond the room spacious and comfortable

    I felt the price for bed and breakfast was much more than it needed to be. The add on for breakfast seemed alot in comparison with the price just for the bed.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The luxury of the room. The extra touches -dressing gowns/biscuits etc.

    The buffet breakfast. All the dishes were empty and the dinning tables all needed clearing. The sewrvice at breakfast was very poor.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Rooms clean and comfortable. Staff pleasant. Grounds provided a lovely 'backdrop'.

    Seared tuna was well cooked and burgers were not cooked as ordered (ie rare to medium). Evidence of a lack of knowledge which was disappointing in a kitchen advertising 2 rosettes.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Super hotel, great value at the price I booked at.

    I thought the breakfast was fairly average, for a hotel of this quality. A token repesentation of continental, and moderate quality English.

  • Group of friends
    8.4

    Good food in the restaurant. Staff friendly & helpful. Comfortable rooms.

    Slow bar service. I would have thought that the object of bar service is to serve as many drinks as possible to maximise profits! However, as my companions arrived in the bar, I had to try to attract the attention of the staff - took unnecessary time in a 20% occupied bar. No big deal but annoying.

  • Couple
    7.0

    The staff are very friendly and accomodating and can not do enough

    The restaurant was over booked at times and not enough staff was present. But after speaking o the manager issues were resolved.

  • Single
    7.4

    I had a problem with y room on checking in and this was resolved very quickly and efficiently

  • Group of friends
    8.4

    Clean, smart, tidy, convenient.

    Diveway to hotel unlit and therefore finding my way to the car-park and reception difficult in the dark.
