The hotel is close to several architectural treasures. St Mary's Church, 20 minutes' drive from the hotel, is considered one of the finest medieval churches in the country. Tatton Park, 40 minutes north by car, is a grand neoclassical mansion set in a sprawling deer park. You can hear world-class choral and organ recitals in the magnificent surrounds of Chester Cathedral, 40 minutes' drive away.
The hotel's central location puts it within easy reach of Crewe bars, pubs and other nightlife. The Lyceum Theatre in Crewe, housed in an Edwardian building 15 minutes' walk from the hotel, offers pantomime, drama and comedy performances. There's a restaurant on-site where you can sit down for a pre-show dinner or enjoy a refreshing drink during the interval.
Don't Go Home Without
About 20 minutes from the hotel, a converted farmhouse barn houses Snugbury's Ice Cream shop, where you can sample more than 40 flavours of ice cream. Take a picnic to the Reaseheath Zoo and Maize Maze nearby, where you can meet meerkats, monkeys and reptiles and listen to keeper talks. In summer you can wander around the giant maze. There's a mini maze for the kids, too.
Travelling with your family? Renowned Chester Zoo has more than 12,000 animals including 400 rare and exotic species, and is an hour away by car. A short drive from the zoo, you can walk through a long underwater tunnel or dive with sharks at the Blue Planet Aquarium. Trainspotters should check out the Crewe Heritage Centre railway museum, just 20 minutes' walk from the hotel.
