More Information

After you drive through richly wooded grounds on the mature, 27 acre estate, this traditional whitewashed country house emerges from among carefully tended lawns and gardens. Dating from the turn of the last century, the original house is an architectural delight.

The hotel is only 10 minutes from the heart of Chester where shoppers will find no shortage of doors to walk through, whether in the Cheshire Oaks designer shopping village or further afield in the vast Trafford Centre.

Receiving excellent natural light, the number of spacious bedrooms at Craxton Wood has reached 72 after a major redevelopment, and the elegance is on an even higher level now. Indeed, woodland orchard and rose garden colours bring a little of the grounds into your room, while chrome detailing and Italian marble continues the attention to quality.

Long regarded as one of the finest in the whole North West, the hotels restaurant takes enormous satisfaction from its 2 AA rosettes and Egon Ronay recommendation. Its single-minded focus is on classical cooking, which is prepared by internationally-trained chefs. Well into the evening you can still walk into the new leisure club1s brasserie for lighter snacks in a friendly environment.

Dating from the turn of the last century, the original house is an architectural delight with exposed beams, wood panelling and fine English oil paintings scattered through a building of elegant proportions.
