I booked this one as it was in a perfect location although I was slightly worried that it may not live up to its 4* rating as the Inn Keepers Lodge hotels are usually 2*/3*. The room was very large, well decorated and offered a very nice bathroom. The bedroom feels a little sparse and could do with some brightening...

Stayed 2 nights for a short break and were impressed from the first phone contact (thanks Rebecca) and all the time we were there. Welcome was great, the room was large, comfortable and quiet. The staff were all lovely, friendly and helpful, Gary and Julian especially. We ate in the restaurant both nights, again very welcoming, good atmosphere and great...

The hotel is fabulous, service & food are impeccable. We were looked after by Lee & Adrian, who were helpful & attending to all of our needs. This is the perfect place to spend a winter weekend, wrapped up by an open fire!!

Stayed for one night on business - room was clean and adequate, it was quite small but fine for one night. There was a very pleasant bar area with log fire and the manager was extremely friendly. We did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on the restaurant. I would say that we paid full price as on...

My family and I recently stayed for two nights whilst house hunting as we are relocating to the area. The bar and restaurant were excellent and the service was exceptional. We ran out of toothpaste so Adrian literally went to the shops for us. Fantastic! We will absolutely be recommending our friends and family to stay here when they visit...

Delightful meals at the restaurant, although the ambient music can be quite loud in the evenings. Overnight accommodation was agreeably up-to-date but frankly dank (slightly smelly bathroom, clammy sheets) on a dark autumn night...and yes, there is the problem of noise from downstairs, although I found it less distracting than some other reviewers. (Always take earplugs when staying over a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled between Wilmslow and picturesque Alderley Edge, this elegant lodge gives you all the charm of a country hotel only 12 miles from Manchester.Dating back to the 1880s and dripping with original features and luxurious touches, it's amongst some of the most characterful accommodation in Cheshire. In fact, it was once one of the grandest private residences in wealthy Alderley Edge. Today it offers 10 comfy, modern rooms and a cosy pub and restaurant, where you can savour fresh, seasonal food in the warmth of a crackling open fire.Alderley Edge may boast the highest number of millionaires per square mile in the country, but there's much more to this pretty village than star watching. It's built upon a sandstone escarpment that overlooks the Cheshire Plain, where walkers will find many picturesque routes criss-crossing its beautiful scenery. The National Trust's Quarry Bank Mill and stylish Knutsford are also well worth a visit. ... more   less
