Why we love Crabwall Manor Hotel & Spa

Heritage meets modern hospitality in the heart of Cheshire

With its castellated façade and gothic windows, Crabwall Manor Hotel & Spa makes a grand feature on the landscape. First impressions count for much as guests arrive at the doors of the impressive hotel, but once inside you find a multifaceted experience shaped by a combination of heritage and contemporary hospitality. Here are five of the reasons we love Crabwall Manor Hotel & Spa.


The architecture

With a history dating back to before 1066, Crabwall Manor Hotel & Spa has a sense of gravitas honed with time. The architecture has been much added to and updated across the centuries but it retains its sense of grandeur, setting the scene for romantic getaways or celebratory spa breaks.

The swimming pool

The swimming pool at Crabwall Manor Hotel & Spa is an impressive feature, with enormous windows at one end of the room and large pillars around the sides. It is the central feature of the spa, flanked by a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. It's a restful place to relax by the water with a good book or quietly chatting to friends before a treatment or two.


The spa gardens

Crabwall Manor Hotel & Spa is surrounded by 11 acres of private land and gardens within the beautiful Cheshire countryside, which only adds to the sense of escapism and tranquillity during your stay.

The spa treatments

Naturally, for us, the spa treatments are a big part of the experience and Crabwall Manor Hotel & Spa doesn't disappoint. Devotees of the famous ESPA product line, after time in the mood enhancing spa suite (complete with a sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room), they offer a collection of face and body therapies, as well as manicures and pedicures in the Jessica nail bar.

The Cheshire location

While the hotel and spa are surrounded by glorious Cheshire countryside, Crabwall Manor Hotel & Spa is also within easy reach of a number of prime attractions. Amongst them, the city of Chester is a wonderful place to explore. Founded as a Roman fortress in the first century A.D, it's brimming with historic features and is known for its extensive Roman walls made of local red sandstone. It's also a great place to shop. Another popular attraction is Chester Racecourse, which dates back to 1539 and is particularly popular for its Ladies Day fixtures - an occasion where 20,000 racegoers attend in all their finery for sunshine and sport.
