Relax at a modern country hotel in Cheshire, with award-winning steakhouse and luxe spa - includes breakfast plus dinner and spa treatment options

The stunning Cheshire countryside makes the perfect backdrop for the modern Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa. It’s a gorgeous place to go to escape the hustle and bustle of city living. The sun streams in from oversized windows on all floors and the overall atmosphere is airy and light, with a cool contemporary edge.

Savour the views of the rolling hills, before unwinding with a swim in the indoor 18-metre pool and some time out in the spa's two distinct saunas, steam room and ice room. The hotel is also home to three magnificent golf courses, with resident professional players on hand if you’d like tips on improving your swing.

Come evening, book a table at the AA Rosette-awarded steakhouse, and follow this up with a bottle of bubbles from the exemplary list of drinks and light bites in the Lounge Bar. After all, you’re in the heart of the UK’s champagne-drinking community here.


The rooms are an elegant mix of gentle colour palettes and plush soft furnishings. The beds are large and comfy and Classic rooms come equipped with a flatscreen TV and separate tub and shower. Executive rooms are a touch more luxurious, with fluffy bathrobes, lovely views over the grounds and luxe bathroom amenities.

The hotel's new Scottish Steakhouse is an AA Rosette-awarded gem serving a royal feast of steaks, grills, burgers and fish dishes, using the highest quality produce. The view from the dining room is pretty special, too. The Lounge Bar is a nice spot for after-dinner drinks, enjoyed from the comfort of a plush sofa.


The centrepiece of The Spa at Portal is its heated indoor swimming pool - enjoy a relaxing dip while you take in the countryside views from the huge windows. There’s also a state-of-the-art gym equipped with the latest Technogym machines. Take your pick from an infra-red sauna, a rock sauna, an ice room and experience showers in the thermal suite, or enjoy a blissful Elemis treatment in the beauty room.


Take your leisurely pick between the 18-hole championship and premier courses and the nine-hole Ardene course for some peaceful and prime golf. The indoor golf academy with expert tuition are both conveniently on hand if you need to polish up a little or you want to learn the ropes.


Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa sits pretty in Tarporley, in the pretty Cheshire countryside between Manchester and Liverpool. Aside from the glorious grounds, there are countless attractions to explore nearby - Chester Zoo, Ellesmere Port and Tatton Park are all within striking distance. The sprawling Trafford Centre is also within range, if you fancy some serious retail therapy.
