“Delightful food, dismal ambience”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Went to dine, had the "Taste of Summer" menue essentially a mini taster menue and what tastes. Don't go for this menue if you are hungry, but the mix of flavours and textures and the superb presentation are hard to beat. Super kitchen, but terrible setting, the restuarant resembles a Victorian drawing room, heavy drapes, was there once a conservatory ? heavy furniture, black ceiling and darkly attired shuffling waiters, offset fortuately by equally darkly dressed but cheery waitresses. The next door Brasserie was packed and looked much more cheerie.

Booked a standard room for 13.9.12, to stay for one night on way back from airport. Standard room was about £145 BB, but special offer to include dinner £125 !! On arrival was advised we have free upgrade to the Bridal Suite, huge smiles – fabulous room and facilities… very big thank you.

This hotel was recommended by the Merlin, who was closed, said the breakfast is said to be to die for. On arrival they had saved our pre-booked dinner table [flight late] and was the last table. Excellent steak and wine.

Before leaving to have a drink in the village was offered a free glass of champagne following an earlier wine tasting surplus.

Breakfast was excellent, and staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Location excellent, and would we go again, well when a hotel goes out of its way as this, and the quality is excellent, of course.
A big thank you.

Room Tip: Hope you was as lucky as we were

There is a legend that King Arthur and his knights sleep under Alderley Edge together with their snow-white horses. This is the subject of a book titled "The Weirdstone of Brisingamen" by Alan Garner. I had recently read this book and wanted to explore the Edge together with the countryside towards Shutlinglow hill to the east of Macclesfield. Alderley Edge hotel was well-placed for this, being right on the shoulder of the Edge, the top being only a short walk uphill. From there on a good day there are fine views towards Manchester and beyond to Winter Hill. The hotel itself did not disappoint. We contacted the hotel direct and were offered a deal which beat those available on LateRooms etc. We had two lovely rooms in an annexe (a small cottage just to the side of the main hotel), recently decorated and furnished to a very high standard indeed with high quality solid handmade hardwood furniture. We had a lovely three course dinner served in the new Bistro included in our rate. The staff were friendly and accommodating but we really had no problems. Breakfast in the morning was generous, and there was a wide choice including smoked haddock, kippers, full English etc. as well as a choice of pastries, cereals and cooked meats and cheeses. Bravo Alderley Edge hotel!

My partner and I had dinner at the Alderley Edge Hotel last night, and from the moment we walked through the doors we were treated brilliantly. The food was sensational and the service out of this world. We are both in the industry and it's lovely to find somewhere where the service exceeds expectations, the food was divine. We will definatly be returning :)

On Friday the 17th of August 2012 my daughter was married at the Alderley Edge Hotel, both the marriage service and the following reception were held at the hotel. The staff were exceptional, the food both at the reception and the evening buffet was out of this world. From the moment we arrived at the hotel the staff were welcoming and friendly, the wedding organisers Gina and Dawn were so proffessional and helpful that the whole day passed without a hitch making the it such a special and memerible day for us all. The rooms were immaculately clean and well presented.
The gardens and lawns are beautifullly kept and were the perfect backdrop for the wedding photographs and the ideal location for the wedding guesses to intermingle.
I have stayed in a number of five star and luxurious hotels in the UK and aboard and none have impress me more so than the Alderly Edge Hotel and its staff.
I would, and will recommend this hotel to anyone as a result of the manner in which myself and my family were treated during our stay at the hotel.

Room Tip: The hotel as recently under gone refurbishment or all are of an excellent standard. The rooms at the...

Difficult to describe how good the food is here.The descriptions may be a bit pretentious but they deliver on the plate. Eaten here many times in the last 15 years and every time I come away I feel its the best food I have tasted. Imaginiative dishes, fantastic presentation and tastes that blow you away. Lamb 3 ways main and berry & violet dessert just wonderful.
Usually the service matches the incredible food but on this visit it was a little off but to their credit they knew and didnt charge for pre dinner drinks.
If you enjoy special food put it top of your list
Cant wait to go again

Great location for visiting bars in Alderley Edge, just a five minute walk down the road (in heels!). Garden area lovely for afternoon drinks, we were lucky the weather was on our side. Staff were welcoming and friendly, room clean and breakfast substantial. Wedding was on the evening of our stay and did not hear a thing, quiet nights sleep. Cant wait for my next visit.
