Historical Traveler Reviews Daresbury Park Hotel
Very clean but extremeley warm
spent a weekend at the devere daresbury park, we visited the hotel about five years ago and it has been completely transformed from what we can remember. on arrival and entering our room we found the ambient temperature inside almost unbearable, there was a pedestal fan blowing on full but this only seemed to be moving the warm around. We put the hot temperature down to the previous days pleasent weather, but looking out of our windows it was drizzling with grey skies overhead. We deliberately decided to go out for a few hours open the window the two inches the restricter allowed in an attempt to let the room cool down, on our return the temperature was still uncomfortable so we decided to complain at the reception. Another irate customer was in full flow when we got there complaining exactly about the same thing, we asked to be moved to another room but none were available, as a compromise the the duty manager and the handyman took the restricter off the window allowing us to fully open it and really cool the room down. This was ok for us but would not have been an option if it was a family with young children, apart from ordering a bucket of ice on the saturday evening and not recieving it(due to a large wedding party) and having to wait 25 minutes for a sub standard breakfast compared to the holiday inn and the leisure centre having no sauna we made the most of our weekend break.
Lovely, relaxing leisure break.
Daresbury was a delightful place for a weekend stay away from it all. We booked our stay as a treat to mark our wedding anniversary. The hotel staff were friendly and efficient on arrival and our room was alocated quickly. It was perfectly adequate being both clean and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and found the staff very pleasant and the food excellent. The leisure facilities had been recently renovated and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in their. The steam room with its piped music and twinkling lights was a treat! Would recomend a stay here for anyone looking for relaxation, comfort and excellent food.
Expensive 3 star hotel
We arrived just after nine on a saturday night, we were staying in warrington for the weekend. On arrival the hotel and reception area looked very nice.
The receptionist was polite and check in was smooth.
Our room was quite small, with two single comfy clean beds. The bathroom was clean but really needed up dating, a new shower curtain wouldn't go amiss plus a new loo.
The curtains were dusty, there was no mini bar and two of the main lights didn't work.
We tried to order food from the restaraunt, but were too late, they stopped serving food at 9. WE ordered food from room service. The menue was very limited and the quality was extremly poor. The bread was stale, the salad was old, there was no dressing available. I had to go to the restaraunt to ask for some.
A glass of red wine was £5.
The following morning breakfast arrived on time, again the food was cold and of poor quality, we had soup spoons to stir out tea and 4 cups of milk instead of a jug, which by the time it arrived was all over the tray. The toast was nice though.
Its a shame, once the hotel had a good reputaion.
Over all... not worth £80 a night ! Very poor food and a limited menu. Next time we stay somewhere else.
Reasonable hotel - but why is it so warm everywhere ?
Stayed here for one night on business. Room was clean & comfortable, but extremely warm. It seemed impossible to turn the temperature down & this was obviously a common experience as there was a fan in the room. The conference rooms were also extremely warm. The food in the restaurant was above average for a hotel & the restaurant staff were lovely. The reception staff on the other hand seemed relatively uninterested, despite having several heavy bags, there was no offer of a help to carry them. Overall, an ok business hotel, but I wouldn't consider it a 4 star or go there for a luxury leisure break.
Stayed at this hotel for a night as our friends were getting married near by , in warrington and we find it pleasant : Nice sized bedroom , nice bathroom , nice breakfast ( Fresh fruits;etc) and friendly staff.
Not a 4 stars hotel
I stayed at the Vere Daresbury hotel for a night as my friends were getting married close to there.
We requested 48 hours before our arrival to have a early check in at 12.00 am. The hotel said ok. When we got there, we had the horrible surprise to see that our room was not ready at all. So we went down the reception and requested to change room which the receptionnist ..The other room we were given was the same than the 1 st one..Room size is ok as well as the bathroom (floor very slippery). But there was no mini bar or no hair dryer in the room. Definetely not up to a 4 stars hotel standart. The room was noisy. We could hear people in the rooms next door and above talking.
The breakfast was ok..basic really.
I was not impressed at all by the hotel services
Stayed here for three nights in July 2005 in a deluxe room on the top floor with my wife and also a small group of friends. It was a sunny three days, my favourite weather, and we were looking forward to staying in a deluxe room in a highly rated hotel. If only life was that simple!
Nothing but terrible service, albeit polite, overpriced average food and the worst deluxe rooms I have ever stayed in. The room was hotter than outside with no air-conditioning or windows that opened more than a few inches. This left my wife and I with very little sleep as the internal room temperature was higher than the outside temperature. Not only were the rooms Hot the hotel insisted that we only needed one towel between two of us. Despite asking every day for an extra towel the hotel, when they remembered, still only brought one to the room. The deluxe room came with nothing as advertised and the hotel was so helpful it was easier to go without so I didn't spend/waste my break chasing up stupid things like towels and bath robes. I would like to say that this is just my wife and I complaining about nothing but the entire party was agreed that this hotel is struck off our list. I advise caution when booking.
Simply, the best!
My third stay at this hotel. I booked a 'Before You Fly' package before my trip to Florida, B and B, 'on site' car parking and a taxi to and from (on my return) Manchester airport. The rate was fantastic! We stayed for a further two nights after our Florida trip. The place is A1!
Angela in the reservations department made all the arrangements totally 'glitch free'! Rooms were great, taxi arrived on the dot! When you travel with two young children, you appreciate things going to plan! Thank you Angela!
After an eight hour night flight we arrived back at the hotel at 8am. Although check-in was in the afternoon, they quickly serviced one of the rooms we had booked, we went for a bite to eat and returned to find all our bags waiting in the room, all this in an hour! This was organised by Bob, who works on the front desk, he is a star! Nothing was too much trouble for him!
Believe me, this is a fantastic hotel! Especially if you have children.
Nice Hotel Friendly Staff
We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and couldnt fault it . We arrived at reception and even though it was busy the staff were very apologetic. The room was just a standard room but was clean and cheerfull right through to the bathroom.
We were on half board and the restraunt and bar area were clean and cool, the choice of food was nice even though you are limited to what you can get on the market menu and it didnt change the next night but you can order off any of the other menus at a charge, which we did and were not dissapointed . The staff couldnt be more pleasent and attentive even though it does get busy as it is a large Hotel , The breakfast was really nice too with lots of choice . We didnt get to the leisure area , but will next time .
We will definatley be visiting this Hotel again and are even considering it for our Silver Wedding celebrations later this year.
Weekend break at the Theatre of Paridise
During our stay at the fabulous De Vere Daresbury we were lavished in luxury, an excellent modern hotel with real four star facilities. From the second we checked in to the second we checked be were looked after with superb customer care. Nothing was too much for the staff there. The only thing letting the hotel down was the Leisure Club, compared to the rest of the hotel facilities in this area were only average! If you want to be looked after and spoilt rotten then this is the place to visit. When we checked into the hotel we were met with a big warm welcome, as Rachel checked us in, she went to lengths to anticipate and exceed our need. For example booked us into the excellent looking glass restaurant just went to those lengths to give the service that personal touch. Very Nice! The Rooms are spacious, modern, elegant and extremely comfortable. In the on our first evening we dined in the looking glass restaurant. Before we got to the restaurant we were impressed by a slick style of service that wowed us! We entered the looking glass bar a were met by Andy, he asked us to take a seat and he would got us our drinks, well my wife and I simple cant resist the offer of a Bombay Sapphire and Tonic! Especially when is comes with table service. Throughout the evening we were met with excellent service in the restaurant sommelier Kevin and Head Waiter Brian looked after us, made us feel really special! The entire team in the bar and restaurant went the extra yard. After dining we retired to the bar for an excellent Glenlivit Malt Whiskey! Not really a fan of whiskey but was sold by the description Andy gave us. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful at the Daresbury Park. Nothing is too much. This combined with the excellent facilities offered at the hotel is a winning combination. I would highly recommend the De Deve Daresbury Park experience to anyone. It is a real asset to the hotel industry and simply must be sampled!Stephen and Patricia Holden

Woke up in an ibis hotel coz Knaps and I had split up and she had the keys. Got back to house and then left at 11am for the North. That was 7 hours ago as I type this and it is a 3 hour drive normally. There was an incident on the freeway and they just closed it?! What the actual ****. 8 hours stuck in a car together has sucked but we made it funny ...
... moaning about the weather and then selfie sticked through the market :) Walked along the river and headed over to the south side to look for a coat and boots for bday party coz it was so cold. Ended up at Oxford street in Primark (primani) and had shopping assistance all day from Chown Chown' don't u have pizza in Australia?' Walked through Soho and theatre district and had a pint where I proceeded ...
Arrived 530am and was ok actually slept a bit on the plane.... Took forever to drive to the house but Sarah Gemma and Chown were all up waiting for me. We had coffee got changed and then went out exploring the sites! Without knaps that is. We must have walked chwenty Kms! Saw Tower Bridge, Tower of London, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, palace, ...
All packed and ready to go. Don't feel well mind, could well be the malaria tablets to be honest. Sarah and Harry have been to see me at home. Mum and Dad are taking me to the airport and I fly in 5 hours. Scary stuff! Waiting for my Dad to finish work and then we can set off.
19:52 8th June 2013 - so I managed to not cry during my goodbyes today! (Improvement on last summer) We are both safely through security check in and luggage etc had an interrogation at check in - "why do you only have a one way ticket? Where are you going? What are you doing? How are you leaving? After the grilling we have eventually got through!!
