I stayed at Cranage Hall as part of a BSI lead auditor course on a residential basis. For this purpose, this hotel is ideal, there are plenty of meeting rooms of different sizes on both floors and all have everything required including flip charts, projectors and even a rail around the room to hold flip chart pages.
The room I stayed in was in the rear extension and had everything I required for my stay. The bathroom was clean and well fitted out and the bed had just the right comfort factor.
The TV was of a very poor quality. It was an early flatscreen design and could not adjust to widescreen format. There was a shadow burnt into the screen which proved to be somewhat annoying. There are only a few channels to choose from, but evenings were pretty much used up with studying so this wasn't an issue.
There is free WIFI, but you have to log back in every 30 minutes or pay for extended use to stop this happening.
Breakfast was good with a varied selection including a special each day. Lunch is a buffet selection with a good choice and varied throughout the week. During my 5 night stay I managed to sample several items from the evening dinner menu and can recommend the chicken tikka masala on curry night as my favourite. The burgers are also very good, but don't have a starter if you want to finish one!
The leisure club has pool, jacuzzi, a good gym, snooker and table tennis. The snooker table was in a pretty sorry state. One cue was damaged and we had to take it in turns because whoever used it was severly disadvantaged. There was no white ball although there were two yellows so we just used the paler yellow one as the white!
This hotel is aimed towards meetings and conferences for which it serves well, but not really a first choice for couples or families.
