“Class through and through!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We attended a wedding here from 23rd Nov to 24th Nov 2013. From arrival, we experienced a wonderful friendly welcome from all the staff, especially Mervyn who helped us with our bags. Our room (the Camelia) was gorgeous, absolutely huge and had the most comfortable bed with feather pillows and duvet. The whole place had an air of a distinguished, bygone age, but with all the amenities of a modern hotel. The wedding meal was delicious, and beautifully presented. In the evening we even had bags of the most wonderful fish and chips. Drinks at the bar were pricey, but we had plenty drinks available at the wedding, so didn't buy all that much. Breakfast was also delicious and plentiful.
A lovely letter from the management welcomed us to the hotel, and offered to let us take their black Labradors for a walk round the grounds...wellies included! We only wished we had the time to do that. Next time!!
All in all Nunsmere Hall was an experience we will remember fondly for a long time!

Room Tip: All the rooms appear to be good.

I cant recommend this hotel enough. We were there for a two night last minute get away. Incredible value at £80 per night (secret escapes) including breakfast for two. The room was vast yet cosy and there was a real air of country house about the decor. The bed was amazing! We only ate breakfast there as the restaurant was busy both nights but it was excellent. The nearby village of Tarporley has a few nice places to eat as well as other restaurants within a short drive.
The staff were efficient yet friendly and were on hand for anything we needed.

If i had to nitpick then i might say that , because of the nature of the old house, you tend to hear every creak and squeak around you made by other guests. We did have a rather annoying guest above us who seemed to be building a Yacht at 2 in the morning... but it was soon forgotten.

As i said, cant recommend it enough. Go treat yourself!

This place was so hit and miss during our two night stay it was a real shame. Our room was nice, typical country house modern stylish but not chintzy. And the grounds are lovely. However first mishap was we were shown to our room which hadn't been cleaned. It was quite bizarre and I'm still not sure what went on but the meet and greet guy with the top hat checked the room first to see if it had been cleaned, told us it had and showed us to the room. When we were in the room it looked tidy, made bed etc, towels neat etc until I saw the bin was full, tea and coffee tray used and dirty and looked at the sheets which weren't fresh so we went straight out and just said the room has def not been done properly... when we got back they apologised and said the room hadn't been done at all, it was a mistake to let us in... But I'm still not sure if they'd just done a really bad rush job of the clean as why would the people checking out before us make their own bed and fold the towels neatly etc... Hmmmm. The communal areas are looking a bit tired to be honest, not great cleaning of the place stands out with skirting boards and cornicing all dusty and stained carpets here and there just needs money spending on it and the cleaners sorting out really. First breakfast was a disaster, there was a wedding party breakfasting, morning after the night before, so obviously busy, but it's a wedding venue so you think they'd be geared up for it. My egg had shell in it, service was slow and incompetent tho staff were trying their best, just seemed not enough on and poor management of the staff, all the non-wedding guests were in a separate room and all kind of looking at each other like how bad is this, a few walked out, the next morning was really quiet and breakfast was great however. Shame really as we would have eaten dinner in the restaurant the night of our first breakfast but we changed our plans because of this. Waited a while in the bar area for someone to serve us while the female manager (I think) on duty chatted away for about 15minutes to guests, didn't serve us or go and get someone to serve us. Just not professionally run. We went to the Grosvenor hotel in chester for lunch and the difference in service was so apparent, there it isold fashioned slick discrete professional service. I feel nunsmere want to be that type of hotel, like Hollbeck Ghyll in the lakes does so well, but they just aren't there at all. Please note also if you're staying when a wedding is on the rooms are old obviously so sound proofing not great so you will hear pretty much everything going on until the party dies down, we were told about this before we booked so not complaining, just a NB...

Once again went to this stunning hotel for a last minute lunch. Craig,the chef is an absolute master who knows exactly how to cook food. A lot of chefs don,t know about flavours,but Craig does!
Service was friendly and attentive. I like Nunsmere Hall because whilst it ticks all the Country House boxes,it is not stuffy in the least and I would highly recommend the lunchtime menu if you want a true fine dining experience at main course pub prices !

We stayed at Nunsmere Hall last night as part of a birthday present. Reception rather quirky but a very warm welcome was extended to us and, though we arrived a little early, our room was ready and we had been upgraded to a rather palatial Junior Suite. It was absolutely huge and we did feel rather pampered! We enjoyed a scrumptious and very substantial afternoon tea which was served by a very accommodating waiter. So much so that we didn't avail ourselves of the evening meal. A three course meal was rather expensive and we didn't feel able to do it justice.
Although our room was very spacious it was surprisingly warm. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were a little too soft for my neck. Clean, crisp linen although we did find the duvet too warm for this time of the year.
We found all the staff helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. The breakfast menu was varied and comprehensive and the full English was well cooked and well presented. Again, the waitress was friendly and eager to please and to ensure we were well served.
An enjoyable stay. Our bedroom looked out onto very attractive gardens and the hotel itself is well situated in very beautiful grounds. A very traditional country house which has been sympathetically transformed into a hotel. Out thanks to the staff for making us feel so at home!

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking out onto the gardens at the back. All the rooms are named after flowers/shrub...

This was my third visit to the Nunsmere Hotel restaurant this year, and I have yet to be disappointed ! I visited with my sister last Friday evening, however, we didnt stay at the hotel. Next time we think we'll stay and forget the taxis ! We On arrival, we were shown to the bar area which was fairly busy. After some champagne, nibbles, olives etc, we moved into the dining room. We both had the same starter, the twice baked goats cheese souffle, which was very light but tasty. Then we followed with the braised shin of beef cannelloni, which I've had previously, and it was just as good as I'd remembered ! . This is one thing you can guarantee here, that the quality and service is always consistently excellent. We ordered Viognier Shiraz by the glass, to go with the beef, just a small niggle but we were overcharged for the wine, however this was rectified later. We followed with pannacotta dessert for me and my sister had the chocolate dessert option. Just to add that there was a wedding event on at the hotel when we visited, however this didnt interfere with our evening in the restaurant, or affect the service in any way, and the wedding guests were in a marquee further down the corridor. Would definitely recommend the Nunsmere for anyone wanting something a little bit extra special.
