Group evening meal here, pre ordered choices. All food and service were good, in fact beetroot and goats cheese starter was delightfully fresh and tasty. Salmon with samphire was excellent, and all arrived with ample fresh veg and potatoes in separate terrines. Pleasant wine by the glass. Cheese board left a little to be desired, two rather large lumps of... More

The service here is second to none as the staff are extremely attentive and so I never had to call a staff member, as they were always there ready to notice when I needed something.

Had Afternoon Tea, one Evening Meal and two Breakfasts and all were very nice indeed. The Tuscan feel to the dining was right up our alley as we holidayed near Cortona in Tuscany Italy mid last year and fell in love with the place so this dining experience took us back somewhat. The restaurant staff were exceptional on all occasions.... More

A well situated hotel near Knutsford. Handy for Tatton Park and Manchester Airport. There is a nice buzz in the hotel. Rooms okay and quiet. A well stocked bar and a busy restaurant. Varied menu and food good but not outstanding. Staff were helpful.

All of the food was amazingly presented, so fresh looking and really good value for money. The restaurant itself is gorgeous - set within a lovely hotel, but still holds it's own luxurious, yet laid back atmosphere. The breakfast is one of the best breakfasts I've had in a UK hotel. And the starters (particularly the squid) is out of... More

Having heard some very good reviews about the food at Cotton's I was really looking forward to Sunday lunch here with family. I can't help but feel disappointed at what was unfortunately no better than standard pub fayre. Given the price of the three course lunch and the limited menu choices I expected what was available to be excellent, instead... More
