This was a nice hotel, the service was good, the food was good and it was reasonably priced. The only thing that let it down was the continental breakfast, the choice was limited and there was no cheese or meat available. I would stay here again and recommend the place, but I would probably upgrade to the full english.

Stayed for one night, the room in the annex was lovely, went for a nice walk along the canal. We had dinner at the Cheshire Cat which was excellent, breakfast was good too. We will certain go again, my only request would be for softer pillows.

Extremely well appointed and clean rooms in a separate building backing onto the canal - don't expect a view of the canal as none of the rooms have windows overlooking the canal. Meals are served in the main building which has a pub style menu, however the staff are extremely attentive and helpful. They were knowledgeable and helpful, providing gluten...

A charming small period hotel with young, friendly and helpful staff. Situated adjacent to the Manchester canal, it provided a calm and peaceful setting. Outdoor tables with soft lighting offered an opportunity to dine/drink in a natural surround. The food was well presented and tasty. Service outdoors was an added bonus. The animal-named room proved a comfortable bed, lovely clean...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Of all the places to stay in Chester, this historic lodge has some of the best tales to tell. Built in Christleton on a key civil war battle site, the Cheshire Cat played a crucial role in World War II before being restored as a warm and welcoming hotel in the 1970s.The lodge's 14 comfy en-suite rooms are complemented by a cosy pub, which is dripping with rustic character and rural charm. Here you can enjoy seasonally inspired country dining together with a range of cask ales and well-chosen wines.There are plenty of things to see and do in Chester. Fantastic shopping, black and white medieval architecture, historic city walls and the famous Chester Racecourse are just a few of its many attractions. Children and adults alike will love Chester zoo or you can explore the weaving footpaths of the unspoilt Delamere Forest. West Cheshire is full of rolling hills, sweeping valleys and quaint market towns worth exploring. ... more   less
