My Fabulous Winning Hobby - Carden Park Hotel Chester

Carden Park Hotel Chester

An amazing garden

I won an overnight Spa break via a slogan competition with Red Letter Experience Days and chose this beautiful De Vere Hotel Carden Park in Chester. The hotel is fabulous and has a massive golf course, amazing food and enchanting treatment rooms. The pool is large and the hot tub inviting, the rooms have big comfortable beds and there is a selection of activities called `Muddy Good Fun` for all the family. Segways zoom over the fields carrying delighted children and archery arrows fly towards their targets. I had a lovely back massage and a facial, my daughter Katrina went for a manicure and chose a bag of spa goodies to take home. The staff were wonderful with Katrina, she couldn`t have the back massage and facial due to recent radiotherapy.

Even better I was able to stay for two nights after I won a hotel voucher with lastminute.com via twitter.

My daughter and I stayed in a twin room which was on the first floor it was spacious and quiet. We had breakfast in the large conservatory which overlooked the golf course and ate dinner in the bistro. The food was exceptionally good and the prices were very reasonable. 

Just chilling

Ideal for everyone not just golfers
The hotel seemed very popular for weddings and the gardens were being prepared for a wedding as we left on Saturday morning. As you arrive at the hotel there is a long sweeping drive through the grounds to reach the entrance and you can imagine the original manor house residents receiving their guests.  The hotel also offers suites and these are situated behind the hotel overlooking some impressive scenery. Chester is only 10 miles away and there are numerous places to visit in the surrounding areas.  We found a lovely country pub just a few miles away and had a lazy lunch there.

It is a big birthday for me in December and I have to say I would love to celebrate my big 60 at Carden Park.  Hint hint my gang. :)

Mid week prices start at £89 per twin or double room with breakfast and use of all Spa facilities. That is really very good for such a great hotel.

Twin/Family rooms have two large double beds
