Why we love Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel and Spa

Just a short distance from Chester, Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel and Spa blends the dependable welcome of the Macdonald brand with the individual destination's unique qualities.

In a woodland location, it feels beautifully tranquil, while a modern spa and a relaxed atmosphere means it's perfect for groups of friends or a romantic getaway. Here are just a few of the reasons we love Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel.

A scenic spa location

The scene is set for rest and recuperation at Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel and Spa, because the hotel is ensconced in 27 acres of mature woodland and gardens. A former country house, it still has lots of its heritage charm, and between the two there's a sense of peace that's perfect for a spa break.

A weekend of activities

The location surrounding Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel and Spa is a great reason to extend your trip for a couple of days so you have time to explore. The hotel is close to the Roman town of Chester with its many pretty shops and cafes, impressive cathedral and Roman amphitheatre. It's also only a short drive from Chester racecourse, which is a treat in the summer.

A thoroughly modern spa

The spa at Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel and Spa was given a £1.4 million renovation in recent years, and the result is an extensive wellbeing experience. There's plenty of space to work out in the gym. Then head to the state-of-the-art thermal suite, which includes experience showers, a sauna, a steam room, and 11 luxury treatment rooms.

A spa that's great for groups

The 11 treatment rooms we told you about? That's good news for groups of friends visiting for quality time together, a hen party or a birthday together. Soak, steam and prepare mind, body and soul together in the thermal suite before taking time to yourselves whilst having a spa treatment (or two).

Elemis spa treatments

Elemis is one of the hallmarks of the Macdonald hotels. After all, their spa treatments are famous for a reason. Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel and Spa offers a range of gorgeous face and body therapies to choose from, as well as holistic services like acupuncture, Chinese cupping, and sports physio massages. The only question is, what will you choose?
