“Extremely friendly staff - shame about the dinner”
Reviewed 10 February 2010

Spent one night at the Longview - on arrival was greeted by an extremly friendly, welcoming receptionist - was shown to my room which although small was comfortable and clean. Can not complain about the room but must confess, I havent seen 'sachets' of showe gel and shampoo for a very long time - a bit tacky. The Bar was comfortable and the staff were extremley sociable and friendly . Despite the offerings of the restaurants in town - we decided to eat in the hotel. This was a mistake. The menu looked tempting - the starters were very good but the main course left a lot to be desired ( we had the Kleftico which in essence appeared to be a Lamb shank which had been cooked from frozen in the microwave - I could be wrong. In fairness to the hotel, they did offer a bottle of wine when we raised our complaint. The cooked breakfast was excellent and the service was excellent. A great venue for a hotel, it's comfortable but the restaurant lacks any atmosphere ( far too bright ) and with a Mediterranean theme the music played left a lot to be desired.

The description "family run hotel" normally fills me with dread, but the Longview Hotel was convenient for where I had to work the next day. Can't think of anything particularly positive to say. Hotel is dated and the single room was uncomfortable. Knutsford is a few minutes walk away with a good selection of restaurants and pubs.

Nice hotel 5 minutes from town centre. We booked a 'cosy' room for £85, which is exactly as the name suggests - small. Although the room was small it was nicely furnished and clean. Wouldn't have wanted to stay in this room for a whole week, but for 1 night it was absolutely fine.

We recently booked this hotel for one night's stay due to attending a friends wedding ink the area. We were after something fairly cheap and close to the centre, which was also comfortable. Thia was all three!

It looks relativley small on the website but wasn't. It has more than enough parking, the staff are polite and efficient, the hotel was clean and well maintained and the food was great.

I would recommend this hotel for a one night stay or even a short break.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a friend's wedding nearby. The hotel was one of a number that were suggested and we were more than happy with our choice. The restaurant has been nicely refurbished and the breakfast provided was excellent. The only slight complaint would be the fact it is not open on a Sunday night, so we did not have the opportunity to sample dinner there. The room was slightly old fashioned but clean and had all the facilities we required. Cost wise the hotel was very reasonable and was far superior to many hotels with higher star ratings we have stayed in. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again if in the area.
