Expert review of Crabwall Manor Hotel

A historic turreted building is home to this hotel on the outskirts of Chester.

A hospital during both world wars and formerly owned by the Jacob family (of cream cracker fame), this historic site has certainly seen some things. These days it serves as a pleasant and interesting manor hotel, with 48 bedrooms and a spa. I love the tranquillity on offer here.

Location: 

The hotel is set in pleasing grounds on a quiet and green stretch of Parkgate Road. It’s 10 minutes by car from the centre of Chester, but not a manageable walking distance. Buses depart from a stop nearby every hour; a taxi fare is about £5.50.

Bedrooms: 

Six of the 48 bedrooms are suites and a handful are classed as executive rooms. The décor is classically neutral and tasteful, though a bit tired in places. You’ll find something a little different in each of the suites – from a four-poster bed to a balcony overlooking the gardens. Whichever room you stay in, ask for a garden view instead of the inner courtyard. There are only two bedrooms with air-conditioning; I’d always request this.

Public areas: 

Classically decorated, the lobby, bar and lounge offer comfortable relaxation.

Eating and drinking: 

Everything is classic about this hotel and the Conservatory Restaurant is no different; elegant and light, evening dining bites include chicken supreme and seared tuna loin, followed by tasty options such as bread and butter pudding.

Leisure facilities: 

Both the free-to-use gym and pool are huge, massive compared to average hotel standards. There’s also a sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and a spa using Elemis goodies.

Service: 

Well-organised, with plenty of smiles.

Who stays there: 

Leisure visitors, wedding parties, race-goers.

Price advice: 

Triples and family rooms are also available for a small supplement; three adult sharers could bag a bargain here, especially during race events when the hotel doesn’t add a surcharge – though it will hold out for the top rates.

Pros: 
Pleasant garden setting
The historic building
Cons: 
Not in the city centre
Some of the décor is looking tired
