Hotels in Cheshire

Ian Jones, Food and Drink Editor

When it comes to Cheshire, including Chester, Crewe, Macclesfield and other stunning areas around an hour’s drive from Manchester, many of the oldest hotels come complete with their own backstory. Take The Courthouse in Knutsford, a former – you guessed it – court house, which now offers a fascinating and dog-friendly overnight stay. Or the fabulous Chester Townhouse, a charming independent hotel at the heart of this wonderful, historic city.

To make life easy when it comes to booking, here’s our expert guide to the best places to stay.
