You don't get a second chance to make a first impression......and the first impression on entering the car park was great. Al Fresco dining area outside, a pond with fountain under the trees and well maintained gardens....neat, tidy and well kept....a sign of good things to come.
The hotel has a lovely warm feel to it....informally relaxing. Reception staff were great, did everything Reception staff should in a timely manner. Always nice to see staff that smile and look as though they mean it!
Room was great, 4 poster bed, lounge area with all the amenities you would expect....with a few extra surprises for my Birthday! Lovely touch that was much appreciated! Obviously a very thoughtful team at work here!
Bar was relaxed and felt very comfortable, a nice mix of furniture, both modern and traditional. Mark, the bartender was more than polite, remembering our names on subsequent visits....a sign that he does take notice of what he is doing!
Restaurant is excellent and has been recently refurbished. Once again, a very nice feel to the experience. Staff were wonderful and looked after us very well. The restaurant manager, I think her name was Nicola?? was very attentive and Fleur the waitress was lovely. Handpicked staff I guess? The food was very well presented and very well cooked, I could not fault it at all. On both nights we felt compelled to send our thanks to the Kitchen team for delivering perfectly cooked food. Once again, a good head chef in control of his kitchen.
Spa area was great, a little busy due to the arrival of a hen party but great never the less. A good size swimming pool, Jacuzzi both indoor and out with steam rooms and sauna plus spa treatment rooms. A good sized, well appointed Gym was also available.
It would appear that there is a rolling programme of refurbishment at the property that will just "update" the decor and surroundings as, with all hotels, they do become "tired" and do need continual work.
Hotel is within easy driving distance of both Manchester Airport and Manchester City Centre, Trafford Park etc. Delightful garden centre right next door. Tatton Park is nearby and is lovely on a sunny summers day.
So, in summary, a lovely place to go and kick back, relax, pamper yourself whilst being pampered by the staff! A good base to use if you wish to be out and about and equally if you want to stay in and relax. A really great experience and will definitely return. Would recommend to anyone!
