The 4-star Carden Park Hotel, spread across 1000-acres of an "impressive Cheshire estate" (The AA Hotel Guide), is not just somewhere for golfers. There are two courses here -- one of which was designed by Jack Nicklaus -- but there is also a newly renovated spa, an award-winning restaurant, and activities for the whole family to choose from.

Chester is a 30-minute drive away and the Welsh border is 10 minutes from the hotel by car. On site there's plenty to do -- as well as the golf courses and the spa, there are two tennis courts, an indoor swimming pool, an aerial ropes course, mountain biking and archery, plus a giant chess and draughts set in the ornamental garden. The onsite outdoor activities team can organise days out such as Jeep 4X4 experiences and quad biking.

The spa has been awarded four bubbles by The Good Spa Guide, and recently underwent a renovation project that added a hydrotherapy pool, a sauna and tepidarium beds. The pool has adult-only swimming times, and there's also a gym and fitness studio with classes available. 

The AA-Rosette Redmond's Restaurant serves classic British fare, while on the first Sunday of every month, a live jazz band accompanies a 3-course lunch. It's also here that breakfast is served -- a hot-and-cold buffet with eggs cooked to order. Both Redmond's and the more informal The Vines Restaurant serve wines from the estate's private vineyard. There's also Morgan's Bar (where afternoon tea is also served) or Jack's Bar, in the golf clubhouse (non-golfers are also welcome).

The hotel setting, elegant decor & outdoor seating area was perfect to enjoy the peaceful setting.
Other Comments
I was surprised that the pool area is so small when there is so much land available. Also the room was smaller than I expected for an executive suite. Although it was immaculate especially the bathroom. Room service was excellent.

Overall the hotel was very good------there was no shelf/container within the walk in shower area so we mentioned this to reception who were to investigate. We thought a £10 supplement for rib eye steak somewhat steep particularly as they were not top quality

Restaurant and reception staff gave a very good service.
