Northrop hotel weekend for my Birthday The initial room allocation had a terrible view so we asked to be moved and as it was my birthday that swung it and the staff obliged. No help offered with luggage though although several stairs to climb. The hotel setting is delightful and on a warm weekend would have been perfect. The restaurant staff were very obliging and despite a wedding happening over the weekend we were made welcome as a small party. Chester is quite close but not in Wales and there was no information about Chester in the room. Easy parking. Collapse

We realliy liked this shabby-genteel hotel. It was warm, with lovely helpful staff, an open fire and comfortable seats to sink into. Bedroom was nice - the only downside was that the mattress was a bit springy. However, we slept well. We will return as it is a stones throw from my daughter and the nicest place in the area. Reasonable price too. Collapse

We booked a 3-night half-board break at Northop Hall in between Christmas and New Year, at the extremely competitive price of £99 per night for the two of us. Northop Hall is a very attractive building set in pretty grounds (much more so in summer I imagine) and on walking in, you immediately feel its grandeur and history. Some people have complained about its shabbiness, and yes some of the carpets, furniture and furbishings have seen better days but that just adds to the old worlde charm, in my view. I would always choose comfort over newness. This hotel offers a grand staircase, lovely leather sofas, a blazing log fire, beautiful cornices and ceiling roses, and during our stay a magnificent Christmas tree. The only uncomfortable aspect was the dining chairs, you just sink right into them and being only 5 feet tall, this meant my chin was virtually on the table! However I got round it by borrowing a cushion from the lounge area next to the dining room, which solved the problem. It was bitterly cold during our stay and you certainly needed to wear a jumper in the dining room, it was warm enough with the right clothes on, but not warm enough for dressing up in a thin dress or blouse. However the bedroom was extremely hot, and all night if you wanted, but the radiator had a thermostatic control so you could adjust this to get the temperature you wanted at any time. The bedroom (a premier one on the first floor, no. 315) was an excellent size with a seating area in the window and an enormous bed. The mattress was firm and we had 3 really good nights' sleep. It was very quiet with occasional plumbing noises from the adjacent room. There is some road noise with the window open, more like a distant rumble, as the A55 Expressway runs fairly close to the hotel and of course being such a busy road, the traffic will be virtually constant. I imagine the sound of traffic is the same whichever room you have in the hotel, certainly outside it was quite noisy all round the hotel. However with the window shut, there wasn't hardly any noise and it certainly didn't affect our sleeping. The free Wifi worked perfectly. Again as in the public areas, the carpet was rather shabby and the wallpaper torn and rather badly repaired in places, but this did not detract from the comfort of the room in any way. What would have vastly improved the room, and at minimum cost, would be some hooks for coats (why do so many hotels not provide these?) and some drawers, which were entirely lacking except for two narrow drawers in the desk. There was just hanging space in the wardrobe, which could have done with more hangers. A towel rail would also have been appreciated, rather than having nowhere to put the towels except over the bath. Simple additions but they make all the difference. Now for the food. The only relevant description is: absolutely delicious. Everything home cooked and freshly cooked. A choice of two menus at dinner, with many choices on each menu. The £99 per night included a £40 allowance for the two of us towards dinner each night - the first night we went over slightly as I had steak, but it was easy to keep to the allowance with 2 or 3 courses, depending on your choice. Drinks of course are extra but reasonably priced for a hotel, in fact the glasses of wine seemed cheaper than in most restaurants and the beer only a few pence more than in a pub. You could have anything you wanted for breakfast, the menu was extensive. I just chose a few things from the main cooked breakfast. There was also a table with lovely fresh fruit, juices, cakes, cereals, yoghurts, jams, even marmite! The waiting staff were very helpful and friendly, and of course our compliments to the chef for all the wonderful food. We visited Chester and Chester Zoo on two of our days, both quickly and easily reached from the hotel, but it's a good idea to check Google maps first to get the route sorted. Chester is beautiful, an absolute must see if you are in the area. On the way home to Herefordshire we stopped at Mold and Llangollen, both very picturesque towns, especially Llangollen. So overall I highly recommend this hotel, with just a few tweaks it would have been perfect! Collapse
