I did not know a lot about this hotel other than what was on the website, which looked impressive in itself. We arrived at about 7pm; the hotel is situated just outside Stockton Heath, so has good access to the town as well as Warrington and is in easy commute of Manchester and Liverpool.
The parking was good the outside area to the building was well manicured, surrounded in large grassy areas leading up the driveway. The check in process was fast and the lady on the desk gave us all the information about dinner and breakfast times and told us where to go if we wanted to use the gym and spa facilities. A newspaper and a morning call were offered too. She gave us the options of dinner, however we were not sure whether we wanted it when we arrived so we waited until we were in the room before ordering over the phone and it was not a problem when we did.
The room was large and decorated in natural colours; it had coffee and tea making facilities, with complimentary biscuits, nuts and a selection of drinks in the mini bar including milk, Sin Miguel, Coke and water.
There as a 26inch TV with various channels, over the usual five, an iron and ironing board, extra pillows.
The bathroom was very clean and fully stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap and bath salts and plenty of towels.
We were grateful of a ceiling fan in the room with the rise in temperatures of late which kept the room cool all night.
My partner took advantage of the spa area, which included a gym, pool, steam room and Jacuzzi, which as open until late.
The hotel could easily cater for any event, such as a wedding, hen or stag do, however seemed to lean towards business needs with large rooms for conferences and a lot of businessmen were milling about of a night and in the morning.
For dinner my partner had chicken, liver pate, with sweet onion chutney and bread and a blade of beef for his main course. Both were beautifully presented and garnished well.
I began with the Parma ham and mozzarella salad, which I requested without mozzarella and then they made me, upon special request a Cajun chicken salad for my main course, both of which were juicy and fresh; the perfect combination for a warm summer’s evening!
Our waiter, Michael, was very attentive and offered his own recommendations for our meals, including the blade of beef and the chocolate pudding with pistachio ice cream for dessert, both of which my partner wholeheartedly enjoyed. Michael made us laugh and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our dining experience and we are very grateful to him for it.
The breakfast was a buffet, all with high quality items, including sausages, bacon and egg as well as cereals and toast for those wanting the continental option.
Overall this hotel is well deserving of its four star status, the staff were poised, friendly and efficient and the stay was pure luxury. I would defiantly go again and recommend this to a friend.
