Renowned historic country house hotel, Rookery Hall Hotel & Spa, situated in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, is proud to be included in Top 25 best hotels from Tripadvisor’s The Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Award.

The award celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel and is awarded to hotels who receive a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Out of the 8 million Tripadvisor listings, fewer than 1% of global hotels achieve this milestone – an exceptional award win, for an exceptional country house and hotel.

CEO of Hand Picked Hotels Ignace Bauwens comments: “Going above and beyond the expected is core to Hand Picked Hotels. We are dedicated to creating unique and enchanting stays for each and every guest every day. Therefore we’re delighted to see Rookery Hall recognised in this list as one of the best hotels in the world. This is a fantastic example of how our hotels deliver magical experiences and it is amazing to see it amongst such great company.”

General Manager James Wiseman adds: “Receiving this award is the ultimate recognition for our exceptional team. Guest feedback is imperative to our success, and this accolade is evidence of how their personalised touch and warmth is felt by our guests and why they return time and time again.”

Built in 1816 and acquired by Julia and Guy Hands in 2001, this historic country house offers luxury rooms with exquisite period features and its 2 AA Rosette-awarded restaurant serves a Chef’s Experience Menu including the finest Cheshire produce and a premium Champagne and wine list. The hotel’s rural location is set within 38 acres of stunning mature gardens and borders the tranquil River Weaver, making it the perfect location for guests to escape the everyday. Furthermore, the Spa and Health Club can be found in a converted stable block and includes a large glass-roofed indoor pool, relaxation area, steam room, gym and treatment rooms.
