My wife and I were on our way from Glasgow to visit old friends in North Wales, and booked an overnight stay at Craxton Wood. We share happy memories of having dined there over 40 years ago, before we were married; I was living and working in Chester at the time, and she came down from Glasgow on 2 separate occasions, to join me in a meal with a group of friends; needless to say we had a fabulous time, as Craxton Wood was then the top restaurant in the area.
The hotel has changed enormously since then, having extended its accommodation and added a spa and conference centre. Everything about it proved delightful. The staff were friendly and helpful; the accommodation was comfortable and well appointed; the grounds remain as beautiful as ever; the breakfast was superb; and on top of all this, the cost was relatively modest (and included a £10 credit for booking online!).
We wre so impressed with the whole experience that we have applied to join the Macdonald Hotels club and fully intend to visit Craxton Wood sooner than the next 40 years!...
