I stayed here as it was close to my work location. However, I found the room a bit dated. It took me 2 days to figure out the shower controls as they have some kind of fancy/ old fashioned system. On top of that, the shower head was too low and non detachable so I had to use yoga moves...

Was taken to this hotel when a flight from Manchester to Singapore was cancelled, found the staff pleasant and welcoming, the room very clean and comfortable, (must mention the pillows which were fabulous- always a problem for me in hotels). Despite this hotel being subjected to a large influx of unexpected guests, they all coped amazingly well - dinner was...

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such wonderful feedback following your unexpected stay with us. Being a hotel located close to the airport, we always do our best to accommodate where possible as I believe most people understand the extra stresses involved with cancelled/delayed flights.

We stayed in one of the executive rooms at the end of June this year, although a bit on the small side this was an amazing room. I decided to book a two night break just after this stay in June and upgrade to a premier suite. Unfortunately it wasn't an upgrade at all. Although the room (312) was very...

Stayed here for a family wedding for 2 nights. A clean hotel with good facilities, and friendly attentive staff. We only ate breakfasts here so can't comment on the dining experience or the Spa as I didn't use it. Breakfast is a typical hotel offering, not brilliant but not bad; I just wish hotels could cook fried eggs which are...

Stayed in a signature twin room, which was modern, spacious with lovely comfy beds. We had dinner and breakfast, both of which were delicious with lots of choice.The only down side to this hotel is that the swimming pool area is looking tired, whether that's because the rest of the hotel appears to have been refurbished and they've not got...

I stayed at Cottons a number of years ago with my wife and kids and enjoyed the stay. We were back in the area on business and while we usually stay closer to Congleton (where our suppliers are based) we found that a number of local events had all our usual hotels booked, so we returned to Cottons. The hotel...
