“Amazing and lovely place!! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

I went with 6 other people on the 2nd and 3rd of August for our best friends hen party! As a group we are more low key so wanted a nice spa weekend and relax. We were instantly impressed with the outside view of the hotel and even more impressed at the inside. The staff were lovely and friendly and helpful. The spa was great and very relaxing and the treatments we had were lovely also and the treatment staff were lovely and good at what they do! The rooms were fantastic, huge and our bathroom was massive! All clean and decorated lovely.
The food was AMAZING!!! We enjoyed every piece of food from the buffet lunch to the 3 course evening meal and the breakfast the next morning.

Couldn't fault this place at all. We had an amazing weekend and would not hesitate to book this place again so don't hesitate yourselves! :-)

Me and my girlfriend booked a 1 night getaway at Crabwall Manor as we were going to see Chester. On arrival at Crabwall manor we were quickly checked in and shown to our room. We had booked a standard room, however as it was quiet and midweek we were upgraded for free to the Junior Suite. This room was amazing! We had a king size bed, separate shower and bath, a seating area and outside terrace. The linked spa has a decent sized pool and gym facilities. All the staff were friendly and welcoming, also full of information about the surrounding area. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning!

My wife and I stayed for four nights at Crabwall Manor, and had a ground floor room close to the spa swimming pool........Room was really spacious and clean, couldn't fault it.....swimming pool was a really good size and water warm ....excellent pool, so more than happy with our stay. Downside was the breakfast, not exactly an attractive table display of Continental breakfast items......but to be fair the cooked breakfast selection was nicely prepared, and the waitresses were efficient and very welcoming.

I recently visited the spa at this hotel and used the facilities, had lunch and spa treatments. The staff are fantastic especially the female receptionist on the spa desk. I think she may have been the manager. The two ladies (one blonde and one dark) who did the spa treatments were brilliant too. The treatments were lovely, however the pool are is run down and in need of refurbishment. There were only 4 loungers at the side of the pool all used by other people all the time. The air conditioning unit was leaking in the very small grubby changing rooms. The steam room had no steam and one shower had dead flies in it and others had hair in the drain holes and were not well maintained. The afternoon tea was nice but served in the spa reception, which was a disappointment. The scones were stale and odd but the other items were nice. It was a special day out with my daughter and we were very disappointed with the facilities. Without the spa staff I think we would have come home within 30 minutes! I cannot comment on the hotel as I did not use it.

From checking in, to checking out this hotel failed to deliver. The rooms were nice, that's it...not air conditioned and very warm in the summer, uncomfortably warm. The food at every stage was poor. Afternoon tea was horrendous. Stale scones (even though I asked when they'd been baked' prior to ordering) pre cut and buttered; whipped cream instead of clotted cream; pencil thin sandwiches and a Victoria Sponge that had obviously been burnt and just has the burnt crusts cut off. Why we chose to have dinner at the hotel after that is beyond me but two starters had to be sent back and then a steak in the main courses too. It's another hotel that has very bland generic brand for condiments that are just poor. Breakfast was no better although the 'spread' was quite big. If you can stand the heat in the rooms then stay there...but whatever you do, avoid eating there.

We stayed here with friends last month having had a good deal on laterooms. It was a very nice hotel situated on the outskirts of Chester. The rooms were large and spacious and looked very modern inside. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We made good use of the spa facilities and the pool and hot tub were great. We liked the fact that it also wasn't too busy there! We enjoyed our breakfast in the morning, we ordered a fresh cooked breakfast but had to wait very long for it. When it eventually arrived the lady said that we could have the breakfast free if charge because of the long wait which we thought was a very nice gesture! A nice hotel and hopefully will be looking for deals to stay here in the future!

We held a reception here after my mother in laws funeral. From the minute I contacted the hotel I have been impressed. The staff have all been friendly, pleasant and helpful and have made what in effect was a sad reason for a gathering as easy and enjoyable as possible. I made several 'extra' requests none of which were too much trouble. Thank you to all involved.
