We checked in on New Years Eve. The bar area is so welcoming and we thought this was a sign of good things to come. We got the keys to the two rooms we had booked and were directed to the little lodges at the back of the hotel. Unfortunately we had been given a single instead of a double,...

We stayed here for a couple of nights before Christmas and were pleasantly surprised! We had read some pretty bad reviews on this hotel but as we couldn't find anything else available in Knutsford we didn't have much choice but to book this - and lucky we did! Ok, to start with the very few negatives - we were in...

Nice pub but rooms very tired. We had a lodge out the back Clean and spacious but needs a make over as the bath room is still in the 70's. Food good and bar prices not to bad. But over all nice place to stop to visit this old town.

We went for pre-dinner drinks with our office team, to this place. I do not think there is anything special about this place. Just like any other pub, you can stop by for a drink and move on. It's a small pub. In case you plan to get heavily drunk, you have the option to rent a stay at the...

The pub/hotel is in the middle of the town, near the train station, supermarket and everything. The staff is friendly and helpfull, the room was neat and clean, rather old and crooked mattress, nice and big writing desk, big bathroom, good shower. No wi fi in the room, only at the front desk and pub. I stayed 3 nights and...

Nice location in the centre of Knutsford, lively bar with good food. My room was at the back of the hotel and not in the main building, room was basic and cold but found a heater in the wardrobe which improved things a little but still cool!

Good location, beer choices and quality always good. Bit expensive when there are plenty of other choices in Knutsford to try out. Think it need to up its game a bit. Been in a few times when visiting but its not my first choice by a long way in Knutsford.
