Set in the peaceful village of Whitchurch, the Macdonald Hill Valley Hotel Golf & Spa resort is set in acres of landscaped grounds in the Shropshire countryside.

The hotel is close to the historic market towns of Chester, Market Drayton and Shrewsbury, with attractions including Chester Zoo and Cheshire Oaks designer shopping outlet less than 40 minutes by car. A little further afield, the historic Tatton Park estate is less than an hour's drive away.

The hotel offers extensive leisure facilities, with two professionally designed 18-hole courses, and an extensive health club with a heated indoor pool, a thermal suite and a gym. There's also a range of pampering spa treatments on offer in the eight treatment rooms of the in-house Elemis spa.

The hotel's Borders Restaurant serves British classics using local ingredients. Guests can soak up views of the Emerald golf course from the conservatory setting of the Hill Valley Lounge Bar -- perfect for a spot of afternoon tea. Alternatively, indulge in a well-earned pint after a round in the on-site Sports Bar.

All rooms are bright and modern with large beds, LCD plasma TVs, complimentary mineral water and free Wi-Fi. Opt for a Ground Floor room to get a furnished patio – great for warmer weather.

The hotel's leisure amenities, bedroom and meal times were very good. General Manager was extremely apologetic about disruption and we are promised a formal response from the hotel.

Rooms were clean and spacious. Staff were very obliging. We would class it as a corporate/golfing hotel.not for a special break.

Very expensive tea -£4.55 for 1 tea bag. Unfortunately the lift to the bar and restaurant was out of order and I have mobility problems. Lighting is very poor for reading in the bedroom.
