“Valentines day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

arrived early on valentines day and was let into the room earlier than antisipaated. At the time we arrived there was a large wedding party in the bar which made it slightly uncomfortable when trying to order at the bar.
Food in the evening was very good and well presented. Only issue was we were kept waiting when ordering our desserts; we had to call them over as they had forgot about us.
Spa facilities where also very good and would recommend but very pricy so make sure you take extra to cover these luxuries.
Breakfast was ok, we wanted granary toast for breakfast and was told it was granary when in fact it was warbies wholemeal bread.There is a difference between the two.
Check out was seemless and smooth. The overall experience was very good and would recommend. I have signed up for their membership in the other hotels and pubs. I have been picky in some of my review but for the price you pay you expect the best.
All the staff where excellent

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Whilst there appears to be many aspects of your stay which you enjoyed there does seem to be a few slight issues that could have made it better.

I am, however, puzzled by your feedback with regard to our Spa facilities. All residents have full use of the Spa (leisure facilities) on a complimentary basis. Guests only pay for Spa treatments (health & beauty). I would not want other reviewers to be misled by your comments.

Finally, welcome to Shire Hotels’ Infinity programme and we look forward to welcoming you at Cottons and our sister properties.

Kind regards

Just spent 2 nights here with our three children for my brothers wedding. We had an adjoining room which was perfect. The staff throughout the weekend couldn't do enough for us and at night even brought up cookies and milk for the children. Food was also great. Took my children swimming into the spa, again lovely.
My brothers wedding was great, food lovely and drinks not over priced.
Would definately stay again and my children have asked if we can have a weeks holiday here, shame it's in the uk lol or I just might.

Anyway thank you everyone at the Cottons, hope you get to see this. X

We stayed here over the festive season whilst visiting relatives.
The hotel is situated on the outskirts of Knutsford and near Tatton Park (National Trust property). Other N.T. properties such as Dunham Park and Quarry Bank Mill are just a short drive away.
The staff are friendly and efficient. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable.
Take swimming/gym clothes and enjoy the leisure facilities.
The breakfast buffet was very good.

Delighted to hear you had a great Christmas experience with us and were able to ‘chill out’ in the Spa and enjoyed the breakfast menu.

We hope you choose Cottons again when next in the area and we look forward to welcoming you back.

We stayed here for one night for a relaxing break away. The booking in process was seemless. The lady advised we could book in for discounted meal deal which we did. Spa was great. Food was fab. Amazing service. Just what we wanted. Thank you!!

I stayed at the hotel as part of a two day conference I attended. The hotel is set in the beautiful Cheshire countryside just outside the pleasant town of Knutsford with Tatton Park very close and National Trust properties such as Quarry Bank Mill and Dunham Massey not too far away. My room was very comfortable and had a large double bed with all the amenities you expect form a 4* hotel, free Wi-Fi is available. The conference facilities were excellent, the communal refreshment area is one of the best I have seen complete with a chocolate raisin dispenser! Dinner in the restaurant was good and the bar had wine and beer at reasonable hotel prices. Overall I enjoyed my short stay, the staff were extremely professional and friendly I wished I could have used the leisure faculties’ but time didn’t allow. I look forward to visiting again sometime and would definitely recommend for business or leisure.

Held a Business meeting there on the 28th January and found Abbey the conference organise r very good. Room was excellent and well set up. The timings for refreshments were kept to and the hot/ cold buffet lunch just what was required. Reasonable delegate rate and ideal location with most attending coming from the Northwest region. Travelled down the evening before with the wife to avoid traffic. Prompt and polite check in and room satisfactory once we had bought the temperature down. Bathroom fine and a good shower although always prefer a walk in shower these days. Bar down stairs reasonably priced and service OK considering hotel full. Did not dine in the hotel. Comfortable bed and overall very happy with the whole place.
Thank you
