The Spa

If you’re looking to be pampered like never before, the magnificent Vital Health & Wellbeing Club will delight you from the moment you first arrive. A recent £1.4 million investment has transformed this facility into one of the finest in the area, offering a haven of complete and utter indulgence.

With a comprehensive menu of soothing and revitalising treatments as well as an extensive set of amenities, a visit to this sensational oasis of calm is a must. If you’re on the lookout for a spa paradise that will help you escape an increasingly hectic lifestyle, you can bask in the knowledge that you've finally found it.

The Workout

A workout at the magnificent Craxton Wood Hotel brings you all the usual rewards and a whole lot more. The state of the art Technogym equipment and a welcoming, laid-back atmosphere combine to create the perfect environment for everything from a gentle jog to a full-on session that works every part of your body.

After your exertions, you can unwind in the relaxing haven that is the Vital spa café. Or, if you’re seeking the ultimate warm-down, try the steam room or sauna and unwind in style. A swim in the indoor pool is made all the more special by the rural beauty that can be seen through the full-length windows.

The Food

A delicious place to sample the finer things in life, the Craxton Wood Grill brings you a wonderful collection of classic British dishes with an innovative twist that will tempt your taste buds from the start. A stunning location for both eating and drinking, the hotel deserves to be on every foodie’s must-visit list.

Wonderful, Relaxing Spa Break

Erika Flynn, Liverpool

We both thoroughly enjoyed the spa experience. The hotel reception was friendly, the room large and comfortable and the food excellent. Both of our spas were professionally given in a quiet and very relaxing environment away from the main hotel complex. The ability to use the rest of the spa rooms (saunas, spa baths, foot baths and steam rooms) was a bonus and the capacity to use them on both our arrival and leaving days was fully appreciated.

Brilliant spa break

Jo Molyneux, Winsford

Lovely hotel and spa. Very clean. Room was freezing on arrival but heater was very effective and soon heated us up. Booked a twin but was given a family room so mum had a double and I had 2 singles pushed together :) spa was clean and facilities fab (apart from one foot bubble spa thing not working and it hasn't for months). Would definitely recommend this place. The masseuse was very friendly and helpful giving me advice about my tense shoulders and sore neck. I'm very fussy about spas and hotels but would definitely return to Craxton Wood. Great value deal too :)

Bethany Williams, Holyhead

Can't wait to book again! Staff were excellent! Professional, friendly and attended to our every need! Our treatments were great and the spa afterwards was great! Even though we found it far from Chester city centre it was well worth the money!

Chilled out day

Samantha Proudlove, Winsford

Had a lovely relaxing experience, spent the whole day using the spa facilities before our Rasul treatment. The whole day was easy and straight forward. Will definitely come back.

“The gym staff are fab”

May 19, 2019 - 66Bluebell66 - Liverpool, United Kingdom

The gym is okay as gyms go. It's not very big, but most days there are more than enough machines for the people in there. In fact the size makes the place feel like a community, it isn't as...... Read more

“Lovely spa but poor everything else”

Paid for a spa, treatment and overnight stay. My treatment was cut short by 5 minutes, despite being a good massage. We both entered the room to be greeted with super old fashioned furnishings, a bed...... Read more
