  • We stayed here to fully enjoy a murder mystery event, we were not sure what to expect having never been to one before. I am so glad we booked the beautiful Mere Court Hotel, every member of the team we had the honour of meeting made us feel welcome and at home, from our arrival to departure we were made to feel as we were VIPs. The murder mystery event was brilliant, it was brough to life by an incredibly talented group of actors. This was fully enhanced by a beautiful meal and incredible service. Our room was spacious and clean with a beautiful view. I have been recommending both the hotel and the murder mystery event to anyone that will listen and cannot wait for our return! Many, many thanks to all at Mere Court, we are really looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

  • I had my wedding here in early April. After booking it nearly two years ago and going to nearly all of the wedding fayres I was so excited. I stayed in the lodge the night before with my bridesmaids, this is a beautiful little place to stay! All rooms immaculate and clean. We had breakfast delivered to the lodge in the morning which was lovely. The staff here are so accommodating anything couldn’t be too much trouble, our wedding coordinator Megan is simply amazing, as the wedding drew closer there was so many last min changes/requests which she dealt with wonderfully. We were lucky with the beautiful weather on the day, the room we got married in was even more beautiful with the sun coming through the window. The day went so smoothly with the staff ensuring everything was going to plan. The canapes we had were really tasty, our toastmaster Rob really looked after us on the day big thank you to him. The wedding breakfast food was amazing just like our menu tasting. The Presidential room we stayed in was huge and complementary champagne and chocolates was a lovely touch. If you’re currently reading reviews now and wondering if to book Mere Court for your wedding please do it! The grounds and hotel are beautiful I think we are so lucky to have a hotel like this so close to home (Warrington)

  • What a fabulous setting for a traditional afternoon tea! The house is beautiful, staff warm & welcoming. The room was set out with about 10 tables, we chose a table by the window with lovely views of the garden. Almost immediately 2 pots of tea were served with the afternoon tea stand following a few minutes later. The sandwiches were delicious, fresh bread, crusts removed. The cakes were even better, lemon drizzle, chocolate fudge and macaroons! The scone was still warm with individual pots of jam and dish of clotted cream! We had plenty of time to chat, and when we asked for hot water 2 more pots of tea were brought in at no extra charge! A very enjoyable afternoon finished off with a stroll around the gardens! Would definitely recommend Mere Court and hope to visit again soon:)

  • My wife and I enjoyed a 2 night stay here in January with some friends. We had double lakeside rooms which were very large, comfortable, clean and well equipped. The food both at breakfast and dinner was very good and plentiful. All the staff here were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The assistant manager, Daniel, was especially helpful and all his team gave the impression that they enjoyed their work, and this showed in their attitude to guests. The hotel is set in a peaceful rural location, but is only a few minutes drive away from Knutsford. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Had wonderful stay here for one night recently. We were allocated beautiful room in main house. All the staff were charming, polite and could not be more helpful. Dinner in the beautiful dining room was very good. – even my gluten free options were delicious. Thanks to Head Waiter Daniel (I think that was his name!) for his help and for the mini tour of the private dining rooms which we much enjoyed. Next time we need to recharge our batteries we know where to come.
