Spa & Leisure

Surrounded by the golf club and the rural scenery that characterises Cheshire, the Macdonald Portal’s facilities lend themselves to a complete leisure break. There is a gym, 18-metre pool, aroma steam room, infra red sauna, rock sauna, two experience showers and an ice room.
Using the Macdonald Collection’s signature product lines, the spa also offers Elemis face and body therapies and manicures and pedicures courtesy of Jessica Nails alongside finishing touches, reflexology and Reiki.

Hotel & Accommodation

An ultra contemporary hotel set against the rural backdrop of Cheshire and tempered only by the more manicured undulations of the venue’s surrounding golf courses; Macdonald Portal is a flexible destination providing 85 rooms which feature modern furnishings to reflect the overriding style. The Macdonald brand always takes care to provide seasonal produce and a good view when it comes to their restaurants, and accordingly, so too does the Ranulf Restaurant – as its two AA Rosettes will testify. For drinks and afternoon teas however, there is also a Lounge Bar.
