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.

Best back massage & facial ever
  • 4 Service
  • 3 Quality
  • 4 Satisfaction

Great pool and saunas & steam room. Well equipped gym. The spa area is large and spacious. Some of the building needs an upgrade/ redecoration. The lockers were hit and Miss when trying to lock, the regulars were moaning about this being a persistent problem. I had a back & shoulder massage with a firm pressure and it was really really good; followed by a facial which was the best I’ve ever had, courtesy of Libby - excellent. Main niggle - the car parking is very space tight and there were lots of golf carts flying about.

Where to start? Shambles, lack of staff, cleanliness of general areas was very poor. Don't think I ever saw a table being cleaned. Took forever to get a drink due to no staff. Found it impossible to...... Read more
