Built in 1816, Rookery Hall Hotel & Spa is a rural retreat set in 38 acres of Cheshire countryside. Bordered by the River Weaver, the property is within easy reach of Chester, Manchester and the medieval town of Nantwich. It has been awarded four Red Stars by the AA, and was where David Beckham proposed to Victoria in 1998.

This Georgian property has an oak-panelled bar overlooking the fountain and gardens, and an elegant 2-AA-Rosette restaurant. Expect seasonal specialties, such as hand-dived scallops, Cornish lamb, and sticky toffee pudding soufflé. The Drawing Room serves afternoon tea and evening cocktails.

The bedrooms are spread across the newer West Wing (added in 1990) and the Old Hall Main House, dating from 1864. All have complimentary water, waffle robes, iPod docks, free movies and free Wi-Fi. Upgrade to an Executive Room for more space, a super-king-size bed and a TV at the foot of the bath. Rooms with garden views are available on request.

The spa is located in the original stable block and won the residential spa gong at the Professional Beauty Awards 2013, as well as receiving a 5-bubble rating from The Good Spa Guide. The Independent describes it as a "spa gem in Cheshire's crown" and included it in its 50 Best Spas feature in 2012.

Guests get free access to the steam room, glass-roofed swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool and classes at the health club. A full range of pampering spa treatments are also available (supplements apply).

Enjoyed Most: The grounds and the evening staff. At dinner they could not do enough for us. We had a beautiful bedroom although stairs on treadwell bit worn but trivial detail.
Other Comments: At breakfast it was a totally different experience. No toast was brought to us, we had to ask twice for some and only got some in the end as a table behind us refused anymore, they were asked 3 times if they wantes toast. We asked for more coffee and tea and also did not receive that. Am glad that happened when we were checking out and not the night befor as it would have spoiled my anniversart.

Enjoyed Most: The experience was without flaw from beginning to end. Our welcome was great, and the quality of the bedroom and the restaurant was first class as well.
Ron Aug 13, 2015 Bromsgrove, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: The staff were excellent - very attentive and polite. The food was delicious.
Other Comments: It would have been helpful to have been asked to book a time for dinner when we booked. When we checked in, we were asked what time we would like to eat and we said 7:30. On checking, the lady at reception informed us that they could only fit us in at 6:30 or 8:45. Also we weren't told when we booked that we could use the spa facilities after we had checked out. If we had known this, we would have made different arrangements.
