Popped in on the off chance for something to drink, mid Sunday afternoon, was pleasantly surprised by the helpful, friendly staff who went out of their way to make the three of us feel more than welcome .Had a look at the menu & decided to stay for a Sunday lunch, the beef & pork belly meals are superb, the...

This is a great location in the middle of knutsford with its own car park so very convenient. The pub is very nice good atmosphere and the breakfast was good. The accommodation was average and needs updating. The bathroom had some mould and the shower over the bath was very weak so not a good start to the day. The...

Shower terrible Bottled water in room but no glasses. Headboard loose on bed. Room 'tired' in need of decoration Net curtains freyed. Didn't bother stopping for breakfast. Went to hand keys back...

I cannot recommend this dreadfully ran down establishment ...in dire need of a renovation / make over. The only three redeeming things, preventing a ' one ' score....were, pleasant staff, clean and comfortable bed /bedding and clean nice towels. Every other aspect really AWFUL.

TV in room missing for 2 weeks per previous review, staff claimed to know nothing about it. Lock to door didn't work. Room smelled & was dirty. Slept in a cupboard in the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. Didn't bother with breakfast after reading previous reviews. No wonder you pay up front in this hotel, stay away!!

We had breakfast with a friend who was staying and it came up short. It had been booked for ages so was no surprise to the staff so should have been brilliant. Instead we had cold beans which were sent back and returned later still cold. Most of us had finished by the time the beans came back. Toast was...
