We stayed at the Wrightington Hotel & Country Club last Saturday 28th June 2014 for a function.
When we got there it was a pleasant surprise. The staff are lovely friendly and efficient.
The hotel is spotless, spacious and well organised.
We had an Executive double room. I really liked the room it had a large queen sized bed, with good quality soft white sheets and Duvet, plus an elegant throw over the end of the bed. On the bed was two pillows each and two nice coordinating cushions. I like lots of pillows and found an extra two in the cupboard /walk in wardrobe so I was delighted. Also there in the cupboard was a ironing board and full size iron which would have been useful if I stayed longer. There is plenty of space to hang cloths up. Outside the wardrobe there is a space to change and a full length mirror to the side of wardrobe just in front, then opposite the wardrobe is the drink making area it has a chest height shelf and a big mirror behind well lit. They supply little pots of milk, Tea and Nescafe coffee I think there was a decaf version too. Plus nice shortbread biscuits and a travel kettle and two mugs there is a set of draws underneath and a waste basket. This area is very well lit and I liked there to put my makeup on being two mirrors and well lit and my husband could shower in peace.
The room had a lovely mahogany dressing table and mirror with draws; there are bedside cabinets again with draws and really nice lamps either side of the bed plus the dressing table. They had a large flat screen TV and had free view and some satellite so I managed to watch the Karate kid while resting before the function.
The Bathroom is medium size a nice shower quite powerful. Toilet and basin tap comes down low looks nice but an art to fill the kettle but the only slight negative thing. The light is fairly good and a nice large mirror and shelf for bits and bobs we did get some complimentary shower gel which was nice.
We had room 140 which was ground floor near the stairs but was very quiet and I would have that room again it looks out to nice courtyard manicured gardens. No nets on windows but plenty of places to change or you can close curtains. Balcony is on a Juliet type about 4 inches but looked nice and you can open the doors. This room has air conditioner nice on a warm day.
Our function was fabulous the food was a set menu but it was good quality and very tasty. I had a Barrel of Melon with a summer fruit compote and raspberry coulis. Topped with a passion fruit sorbet/ ice cream it was to die for. My main meal was Rack of Lamb with a herb crust and parsnip mash and they also had roast potatoes, new potatoes, green beans, broccoli, carrots and gravy, this was cooked just right and was lovely I was worried about the parsnip mash but I can say I am a convert really gorgeous. Dessert was bread and butter pudding with vanilla custard this too was lovely not soggy but a nice texture and a lovely taste. We had merlot wine which was good quality and very nice, they also put lots of jugs of water and ice, and served Tea and coffee plus mints. I would definitely recommend my function dinner.
I had the self service breakfast the full English was available, I had Kellogg’s cornflakes, bacon and eggs plus the warm mini croissant and some jam and a nice pot of tea good quality and very nice.
I had a little look at the spa it looked good, pool is nice but did not actually use although I had a nice Latte in the spa coffee bar.
I have MS and the hotel really looked after me and dealt with my requests sympathetically and efficiently in a friendly manner so a huge thank you to the hotel staff and I hope to go again and use more facilities next time. Great place I was so impressed!
