Macdonald Craxton Wood Hotel
Safe Hands For Cancer Accredited
The treat about this lovely hotel is that although it is only a short distance from Chester, its woodland location makes it feel beautifully secluded, gifting it an air of escape. Comfort and style are at the forefront of everything on offer and that extends to the spa – a renovated area that now boasts state-of-the-art facilities and a particularly luxurious thermal suite. As well as pampering treatments, more holistic therapies such as acupuncture and Chinese cupping are also on offer.

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 £1.4 million renovation has left the venue with a state of the art thermal suite which includes experience showers, a sauna, a steam room, 11 luxury treatment rooms and a gym.
In keeping with the Macdonald brand’s pampering leitmotif, the Elemis and Jessica product lines are put to optimum use in a range of therapies and beauty treatments. Following the refurbishment, holistic services are now also available, such as acupuncture, Chinese cupping, and sports physio massages.
