Accommodation in the new section is really great; rooms are modern, relaxing and quiet, dinner is delicious especially the steak, great desserts and wine for a relaxing break; a Spa to ease your stresses away, a pool, jacuzzi what more can I say; breakfast is breakfast, bacon, eggs and toast, nothing about which Cottons can boast; but everything else even...

Booked this hotel as it was fairly close to Tatton Park where I was attending a Christmas Party. On arrival, the hotel looked lovely and welcoming, decorated well for Christmas and had a cosy feel. The chap on Reception was really helpful. The room, if slightly old fashioned, was lovely - it was large with a separate lounge area. I... More

I have visited Cottons many times on business, most recently in November 2016. The new rooms are particularly nice, comfortable with everything one needs. The evening meal is always good, and the staff are very friendly and professional. However, the place is let down in one respect - mobile coverage (on both O2 and Vodafone), which is dreadful even in... More

Although this is mainly a Spa facility, we didn't get the chance to use any of the Spa services so I can't live feedback about them. It caught my attention that there was no Dorman no bell boy or anyone to help upon arrival, so we had to take care of our luggage from the car all the way to... More

Second time visiting and was given one of the brand new rooms which was fantastic, clean and modern with great bath and shower. The restaurant is pretty basic, pate carved from a block with some rocket arrived instantly but took three attempts and 25 mins to get a glass of wine and some water despite loads of staff.

4 of us have just visited here for a friends 30th birthday. And had the Girls Night Out package priced at £132 each. On arrival one room was ready so we all went to put our bags in the one room and get changed to use the Spa facilities. As only 1 room was ready we only had robe and... More

We stayed here for one night in a suite, booking the Autumn Treat package which includes a £35 allowance for dinner. Their website states this is more than enough for a typical 3 course meal and coffee, an interesting statement when the 3 course set meal is £36 without coffee. Our suite was nice enough, the bathroom needs modernising but... More

I stayed here as it was close to my work location. However, I found the room a bit dated. It took me 2 days to figure out the shower controls as they have some kind of fancy/ old fashioned system. On top of that, the shower head was too low and non detachable so I had to use yoga moves... More

Was taken to this hotel when a flight from Manchester to Singapore was cancelled, found the staff pleasant and welcoming, the room very clean and comfortable, (must mention the pillows which were fabulous- always a problem for me in hotels).

Being a hotel located close to the airport, we always do our best to accommodate where possible as I believe most people understand the extra stresses involved with cancelled/delayed flights.

We stayed in one of the executive rooms at the end of June this year, although a bit on the small side this was an amazing room. I decided to book a two night break just after this stay in June and upgrade to a premier suite. Unfortunately it wasn't an upgrade at all. Although the room (312) was very... More
