The UK is filled with great hotels. The country caters to millions of tourists each year who come here from all over the world. In this edition, we’re going to look at the picturesque region of Cheshire in Northwest England.
When you think of this part of the world there are several things that come to mind. The mighty Manchester. Where creativity and innovation meet. Across the Pennines is its feisty neighbor of Liverpool. A city proud of its routes and more of a match for Manchester in many areas including football, food, and nightlife. Sandwiched between these northern lights in Chester. A historic place that holds Manchester and Liverpool together.
Added to all this, this region has some of the best hotels in England. From leafy country estates to city center modern flagships. Here are some of the best hotels this scenic of England offers visitors:
The Chester Grosvenor
This is one of the prime hotels that reside in Chester. The 19th-century property offers 5-star luxury and style. It has a Michelin restaurant and even a hatted doorman to open the door to the foyer (now you know it’s posh!)
The location is perfect. Situated perfectly to explore Chester and the wider Cheshire area. Near to the cathedral, Roman amphitheater and the popular medieval shopping gallery of the Rows, you can experience luxury while being near to all the action.
With excellent spa facilities, the option to be chauffeur driven and splendid living quarters, the Chester Grosvenor is lavish.
There are other great hotels in the Cheshire area by checking here:
In the Ribble Valley is the wonderful accommodation of Northcote. This Lancashire hotel is lavish and boutique. Formally the home of a textile baron, it has a lot to offer guests. From the two separate lounges with a roaring fire which is perfect for winter. Its cocktail lounge is great where you can enjoy your evening in true luxury. With views of the Ribble Valley from the large terrace and dinner in the Michelin starred restaurant, Northcote ticks all the boxes.
With the option for golf as well as wine and cookery classes, this boutique residence has something for everyone.
It’s not Chester’s award-winning boutique hotel for nothing. One of the finest properties in the area, the expansion to Edgar House makes it a must-visit. With its new Restaurant Twenty2, expect amazing service, grand dining and even better food options. Everything about Edgar House screams boutique. The style and character of this property make you feel you’re staying over a friend’s rich pad. There’s a really gentle, homely feel about it. On arrival, it can be expected to be welcomed with a glass of champagne which adds to the experience.
With 7 wonderful rooms and discounts on spa facilities, great times are to be had at Edgar House.
Rowton Hall Country House Hotel & Spa
Not just for a wedding, Rowton Hall Country House is perfect for a weekend short break. Fantastically located near to Chester but within the Cheshire countryside, you can experience the best of both. The hotel dates back to 1779 and still has much of a rustic feel about it with its well-polished wooden paneled décor within the reception area.
The long driveway really makes you feel you’re driving in Downton Abbey.
With an array of notable facilities such as the pool, whirlpool, gym, sauna, and treatment rooms, guests have all the leisure facilities they would expect here. Others may enjoy some tennis or long walks around the grounds (when it’s not raining!)
With over 35 rooms each with their own charm and history, Rowton Hall is a place to be discovered.
These are some of the best hotels in the Northwest of England. Whether you’re looking for a short break in Cheshire or just a weekend away here, you’ll find these hotels tick the boxes for you as part of your wider visit to the UK.
This is something I will save for when I get to England. Thanks for the heads up.
