Our customer rating: 4/5


Being pampered is so good for the soul, and DoubleTree by Hilton Stoke on Trent lets you escape the everyday in style. 

This sleek, modern hotel nestles within the grounds of Etruria Hall, the Grade II-listed building right next door. Once the home of famous English potter Josiah Wedgwood, the hotel shares its four acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds. It’s the perfect setting for the treat you’ve been craving.

Newly refurbished in 2020, even check-in is indulgent here - you’ll be handed a deliciously warm cookie on arrival to make your welcome even sweeter.

Check-in, then chill out with all the fabulous leisure facilities on offer. If hitting the gym or taking part in a studio class seems too energetic, feel free to just laze around the pool, sauna and steam room. Just make sure you leave time for a beautifying, head-clearing or soul-soothing treatment at the Beauty Hideout, cocooned in your soft, fluffy robe. 

With an enviable Festival Retail Park location you’ll be within easy walking distance of some Stoke-on-Trent’s best attractions. Shop til you drop among the big name brands and high street fashion stores, whizz down the dry slopes at Stoke Ski Centre or just have fun at Waterworld, the UK’s number one indoor tropical aqua park, just a quarter of a mile from the hotel’s front door. 

Thrill-seeker? DoubleTree by Hilton Stoke on Trent makes a great base for Alton Towers, just 17 miles away. Or stay closer to home and walk the ten-minutes into the city centre. Culture vultures will love the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery here, or you can paint some pots of your own at the Emma Bridgewater Factory.

When you’re ready to wine and dine, Josiah’s Bar and Brasserie is waiting for you back at the hotel. Then, all that’s left to do is to float off to bed to one of DoubleTree by Hilton Stoke on Trent’s 147 bedrooms, packed with luxurious touches.

The Spa & Wellness at DoubleTree by Hilton Stoke

Ready for some serious me-time? DoubleTree by Hilton Stoke on Trent’s spa and leisure facilities make the perfect place to pamper yourself. 

Take a relaxing dip in the warm, toasty waters of the tranquil indoor pool, or just pull up a comfortable lounger and relax poolside.

Sweat out the toxins in the sauna, before relaxing in the absolute humidity of the steam-room. Breathe in deeply and let your shoulders drop while you aim for perfect relaxation.

Pad along to the The Beauty Hideout for feel-good rituals to savour. Sink back into the soft bed and enjoy a menu of different massages designed to calm, relax or revive you, from a sleep-promoting scalp massage and deeply-cleansing back treatment, to a peppermint foot rub that revives tired tootsies. Or go for a luxurious facial and float out glowing from top to toe.

The Gym & Fitness at DoubleTree by Hilton Stoke

Got some time to invest in yourself? The fabulous fitness facilities on offer at the hotel’s Leisure Centre will help you make the most of every minute.

Not only does it give you access to the gym, studio, pool, sauna and steam room, its chic reception area makes the perfect place to show off your brand new leggings!

The well-stocked gym rivals some of the finest workout spaces in the city, with the state-of-the-art Matrix kit making even tough workouts feel like a breeze. And, if you’ve ever fancied trying out a Peloton bike, the hotel has two so you can ride alongside a friend for extra motivation.

Prefer to build some muscle? The resistance and free weight area has all the classic equipment you need to help you tone up. The gym also runs fitness challenges to build strength, burn calories and have fun at the same time - like seeing how many times you can punch a punch bag in a minute. 

Classes more your cup of tea? The fitness studio is the home of some fantastic instructors who’ll lead you through everything from yoga to circuits. And for those who need a little extra helping hand, personal trainers are there to answer questions or create a plan that will help you reach your fitness goals.

Decided to surprise my friend with a break away at a hotel and a treatment. I looked for one near where we both live and had heard good things about the DoubleTree by Hilton Stoke on Trent. It didn’t disappoint! The changing rooms and poolside facilities were immaculate. We both had facials which were amazing from start to finish.

Hotel was so friendly. It was a hot day and they even gave out cold bottled water and ice lollies. Spa was full of nice touches, the therapist really put me at ease and I loved my sleep-inducing scalp massage. Never slept better!

Spa was small but had a good choice of treatments. The pool and spa area was really quiet at the time we came which made it relaxing. Couldn’t fault my therapist. In fact, all the staff we came into contact with couldn’t have been better.

Had a great stay from start to finish. Welcoming atmosphere at the hotel and we loved the warm cookies we got at check-in! My massage was amazing and my therapist was lovely. Swimming Isn't my bag so I skipped the pool and stayed on a lounger, but it was lovely to look at, instead I had a few minutes in the steam room and then a sauna. Highlight for me and my friend was a cocktail at the hotel bar.

Stayed en-route to Alton Towers because we wanted a massage and a hotel with a pool to relax in afterwards. This fitted the bill. Very comfortable hotel with all the facilities you need on-site. There’s a gym, swimming pool and I had a relaxing massage. Would recommend.
