About

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.

Overnight stays at the superb Portal Hotel will soothe the soul. There are 85 sumptuous bedrooms here, as well as a spa offering eight wonderfully tranquil treatment rooms. You’ll also find three excellent golf courses and two eateries that combine elegant surroundings and mouth-watering food.

Please note: This Hotel operates a cashless system.
