We returned home on Sunday from a 4 day break, staying at the Woodhey House hotel for 3 nights. Check in was smooth, Karen on reception was a pleasure to chat too, creating a warm welcoming atmosphere. The room 123 was very dark, which was a bit disappointing, heavy overhaning trees blocked all of the natural light, but on the plus side, it was very clean and quite a good size, I suppose if the lack of light had been such a huge issue to us we could have asked to be moved, but didn't intend staying in the room for too long. The bathroom had a bath and shower which was good, particularly when I had been tramping round Chester all day, a nice soak was just what I needed, toiletries were provided too.
The pool and spa are both worth a visit.
Food was good, plenty of variation. Breakfast was a bit slow at refilling but that is being addressed, the staff are very obliging if you want something which isn't out ask for it and they will do everything to provide it.
The hotel is approx 20 mins walk from the village of Little Sutton, (turn left out of the hotel, left again onto main road, left when you come to the main crossroads and carry on walking down past the housing estate). fabulous Thai resteraunt which looks very drab from the outside, but is a little gem when you go upstairs.Food was gorgeous. turn left at the crossroads into the centre, drop in at the Red Lion, live bands playing, thurs/fri/saturday and a very clean pub.
I would reccomend the Woodhey house hotel, it is defintley the staff that make it such a pleasant place to stay, special mention to Karen on reception and April, who seems to work 24 hrs a day, keep smiling ladies you make a difference. : ))
A nice patio area would be an asset, there is ample parking, so taking off a small corner for a patio area would not be detrimental to the hotel.
