In the small hamlet of Acton Trussell, this hotel sits in idyllic grounds and countryside. We received a warm welcome at reception, check-in was swift. The room was quite spacious, with chairs, desks, ample wardrobe space, two twin beds joined-up to form a very large king size bed. The standard of the room and bathroom suite (with complimentary toiletries) was...

Stayed at the Moat House for one night with my husband and son. The service was brilliant however we felt that the room needed a little updating. The food was of a high quality however expensive for what it was. Overall a nice treat.

An excellent meal, perfectly cooked and well presented. With a drink, coffee and numerous petit fours the bill still only came to £33 per head including tip. This is real value for money in a top grade establishment. Little wonder then that we eat here regularly, despite living 45 miles away on the Welsh border!

I am unsure why we have not been for a meal here more recently! What value for the quality of food! We chose a 2 course meal for £21.95 as we were booked for 7.15 which is a little less expensive than a later booking. Both of our meals were exceptional full of flavour and both choices of sweets were...

Beautiful setting on the side of the canal with its idyllic listed manor house. I would have happily given this hotel 5 stars but feel it lacks in overall catering for a family visit. The family room is a single bed alongside a double bed and for a family with more than 2 young children then you'll be given a...
