Spa & Leisure

Following a little pampering of their own, Vital Health and Wellbeing Club at Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel and Spa now combines both leisure and relaxation side by side. Their recent £1.4 million renovation has left the venue with a state of the art gymnasium, 18-metre pool, naturally lit dance studio, extensive thermal suite, rasul mud therapy room, two relaxation areas, experience showers, sauna, steam room, and 12 luxury treatment rooms. In keeping with the Macdonald brand’s pampering leitmotif, the Elemis, St Tropez, and Jessica product lines are put to optimum use in a range of therapies and beauty treatments. Following the 2014 refurbishment holistic services are now also available, such as acupuncture, Chinese cupping, and sports physio massages.

Hotel & Accommodation

Close to the Roman town of Chester, Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel is ensconced in 27 acres of mature woodland and gardens, and within the construct of what remains a country house atmosphere, there are 72 rooms and suites including family rooms. The hotel’s main restaurant is the Craxton Wood Grill, which serves British classics with a twist. For something a little lighter in a less formal atmosphere there is a cocktail bar and lounge complete with an outdoor terrace. Additionally, there is also the Vital Coffee Bar set within the parameters of the Vital Health and Wellbeing Club. Finally there is the Woodland Spa Café, allowing you to have your lunch in the comfort of your own dressing gown.
