Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa Chester, Cheshire

Cheshire is undoubtedly one of the UK’s most beautiful counties, and the glorious Macdonald Portal Hotel is a jewel in its crown. A luxurious retreat set amid some beautiful countryside, this is a go-to destination for anyone seeking high end opulence. As soon as you arrive here, you will start on the gentle, pleasant path to complete and utter bliss.

There’s plenty to see and do in the local area, but checking out the Roman heritage of Chester surely has to be close to the top of the agenda. Family days out at the excellent Chester Zoo are always enjoyable, while the spectacular Chester Cathedral is also worthy of a visit. And of course, you can shop till you drop in the city centre, where you’ll also find museums and art galleries.

Great Week-end Break

Mike, Cheshire

Thanks to the lovely staff at the Portal we had a wonderful Spa break.
The hotel and spa was clean and well maintained. The facilities were excellent and the room was top class. Dinner in the restaurant exceeded our expectations - delicious food and professional and friendly service.
The breakfast was acceptable but the coffee was undrinkable.
Being a golf hotel, many of the guests are male golfers but this did not spoil our experience. There were other couples like us and with the golfers out golfing all day the pool was always quiet.
The full body massages at the spa were excellent.
We would definitely return.

“Disappointing food options”

October 9, 2018 - Captain_Condor - Twickenham, United Kingdom

It seems that emphasis has been diverted from the hotel to the golf course. The course looks decent, but don't look forward to a decent meal after your round, the restaurant is not open for lunch and...... Read more
