A relaxing stay at a modern country hotel in Cheshire, with award-winning steakhouse and luxe spa

The stunning Cheshire countryside makes the perfect backdrop for the modern Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa. It’s a gorgeous place to go to escape the hustle and bustle of city living. The sun streams in from oversized windows on all floors and the overall atmosphere is airy and light, with a cool contemporary edge.

Savour the views of the rolling hills, before unwinding with a swim in the indoor 18-metre pool and some time out in the spa's two distinct saunas, steam room and ice room. The hotel is also home to three magnificent golf courses, with resident professional players on hand if you’d like tips on improving your swing.

Come evening, book a table at the AA Rosette-awarded restaurant and order a bottle of bubbles from the exemplary wine-list in the Lounge Bar. After all, you’re in the heart of the UK’s champagne-drinking community here.
