Rooms & Rates

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, a snooker room, an aerial ropes course, mountain biking and archery, plus a giant chess and draughts set in the ornamental garden.

The spa has been awarded four bubbles by The Good Spa Guide, and recently underwent a £4million 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. Those not having a treatment will have to pay extra to borrow a robe and a towel (£5 per person).

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 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 spacious bedrooms are spread across the main house and a number of lodges nearby. Some were recently renovated, and have balconies with views over the grounds and golf courses. Free Wi-Fi, safes, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and small fridges with complimentary mineral water come as standard in all rooms. Upgrade to a Carden Luxury Suite for views of the estate through floor-to-ceiling windows, a Nespresso coffee machine, a complimentary fully stocked mini bar, and a welcome box of chocolates and a bottle of the hotel's own sparkling wine on arrival.
