... geek then one of the pretty damn computer literate. I've also been fortunate enough to live in one of the most internet savvy countries in the world for almost 15 years. If you fall behind with new technology, you fall behind in every aspect of life, so I'm glad people can come to the library and get the help they need. Saying that, the library's nowhere near as well-equipped as the university's shiny new Information Commons.
Taking things easy today, as I'm feeling a bit under the weather. I head down to the centre of Hillsborough around half ten and spend a pleasant morning working in a tea room, feeling a tad out of place with my huge laptop. A very twee establishment indeed, with quality china, woolly tea cosies and plenty of grannies. On the high street are at least two hot pork sandwich shops, the smell I always associate with Sheffield. If ...

... his wife was operating the sluices and the gates. It looked like hard work as they were going up a "staircase" lock and had to fill the top lock first, then fill the next lock down using the same water, then fill the top lock again when they had got the boat into it. Apparently going down is a bit easier. It was interesting to see the steps they had to go through to make sure that all the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kingsley Lodge Wilmslow
Ideal Business Boutique hotel
I am an American businessman who travels to the North of England regularly. I recently discovered a great new boutique hotel not far from Manchester Airport - it is called Kingsley Lodge.
Give them a try when you need a little personal attention.
Great business facilities and warm hospitality.

What a little gem
Jeremy and Cliff have created a perfect gem in Cheshire. A beautiful small hotel with excellent bedrooms and the most charming hosts. The hotel is set in large perfectly manicured gardens which are a delight to view whilst enjoying your superb breakfast.
Superb boutique hotel
One of the best properties I have ever stayed in. Very Friendly and superb service. Rooms and lodge are of 5* deluxe high spec. I stayed in Gold room. Bathrooms are immaculate with Molten Brown toiletries and designer style bathroom. Bedrooms are just pure luxury with large LCD tv and DVD player. The rest of the property is what you would dream of in a small hotel/house. Jeremy and Cliff go all the way to make you feel at home and welcomed without being intrusive. The breakfast is whatever you want. The Breakfast room overlooks the grand gardens. Also the lounge has a settee to die for. Will definatly return to this hidden 5* deluxe at the drop of a hat. This is a must!!!!
I wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else!
I am often in the Cheshire area for work and I used to stay at the Alderley Edge Hotel. When the Kingsley Lodge first opened, I thought I would try it out for something different. Since that first stay a couple of years ago I simply refuse to stay anywhere else. Kingsley Lodge is the perfect mixture of comfort, luxury and convenience. The warm, friendly greeting on arrival sets the tone for your entire stay. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts, Jeremy and Cliff, who take so much personal pride in ensuring that your stay is absolutely perfect. The rooms are amazing - modern, luxurious, spacious and fitted out with everything you could possibly need (including the very handy wireless internet connection). The cleaning is faultless and there are so many nice touches (DVD library, Molten Brown bathroom products etc). The location is very convenient, with Wilmslow Town centre an easy 10 minute walk (or a two minute drive).
For a business traveller such as myself, it is such a welcome change from the impersonal hotels that I am used to. I stayed there again in February and the Lodge lived up to it's ususal exceptional standards. I would happily recommend Kingsley Lodge to anybody!
I am often in Cheshire for business and am so glad I discovered this little gem. The place is finished of with impeccable styling and situated in luxury surrounds. The service is top notch and the elegantly decorated rooms provide great privacy. Being able to connect to the internet and my office network via wireless is also a big plus for me and it is a pleasure to finish off the days emails while over looking the magnificent backyard. definitely worth a look
A truly magnificent find!!

Fabulous Gem of A Place
I stayed at Kingsley Lodge for 3 nights.
The room was wonderful and the service exellent!
The food was outstanding and the owners were very friendly.
I also loved their dogs!
Just stayed at this little hotel in Cheshire whilst attending a wedding close by. We were so impressed with everything. It's like a top class boutique hotel with all the comforts of home. Our room was beautiful with all the little extras that are often forgotten. The grounds are fabulous and the hosts made us feel like honoured guests - nothing was too much trouble. I'd have no hesitation in highly recommmending this very special hotel.
Beautiful Small Hotel
I was surprised and delighted by the Kingsley Lodge. The whole house is beautifully decorated and the owners manage to be friendly and welcoming but not intrusive. I stayed in the Silver Room but I also viewed the Gold Room and the single Bronze Room and they are all superb. The bathrooms are very well fitted and each room has a DVD player. A selection of DVDs and an honesty bar are available downstairs. My breakfast was delicious. All in all, highly recommended.
