The family run Amado Boutique Hotel is ideally located just up from the bustle of the 20 bars and restaurants within Stockton Heath as well as a 5 minute taxi journey into the heart of Warrington.
From the pricey and trendy, the middle of the road eateries to the more modest fish and chip shop there is something to suit all budgets for an evening meal and drinks to eat out or take back with you to eat in the dining area or the lounge of the hotel. A little further up the road (200m) makes the hotel accessible for all your night time activities, but also is slightly out of the way so you don’t get any of the noise from the merry makers.
With onsite parking at the front and the back of the building it saves you having to look for a place to leave your car in the busy village, so you can be sure that it’s safe overnight.
The hotel, which opened in October 2013, offers 6 luxury en-suite bedrooms, each one individually designed and no expense has been spared in their decoration.
The décor embraces the Edwardian style and classic features, such a four poster bed in the largest room and chandeliers, along with a modern edge, incorporating the best of both the old and the new.
Every one has a signature wallpaper on the chimney breast which captures the distinctiveness of each room and draws the eye to the beautiful focal point of the fireplace.
Each bedroom is named after a beach, embracing the Mediterranean influence that comes through from original features, like the mosaic floor and stained glass windows that decorate the entrance and hallway.
Every four poster, mother of pearl, genuine leather or oak bedstead has Egyptian cotton sheets, oversized quilts, a flat screen TV, complimentary toiletries, free Wi-Fi, ironing facilities and a hairdryer.
Despite our room (Amado) being situated on the front of the building, we both had a very restful night’s sleep and undisturbed by the nearby frivolities and the bed was extremely comfortable.
The bathroom boasted a large freestanding bath, walk in shower, a selection of luxury goodies and plenty of fluffy white towels and robes for our stay.
There is a lounge downstairs for guests to relax in a more communal area, so you are not confined to your room if you are staying there for longer than a night.
The breakfast was perfectly cooked and served with toast and cereals to indulge in before the traditional hot offerings.
Every older building has a story and this one is no exception. This was the former home of George Formby, and so references are made throughout the hotel and the village to him being there.
Stockton Health is also the UK’s first Purple Flag Village recognising the quality and walking distance to all of its surrounding bars and restaurants.
The hotel is a mere 15 minutes from Manchester, Liverpool and Chester, as well as in close proximity to both airports which makes it the ideal place to commute from on business or pleasure.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for somewhere to stay for work or for leisure. Having stayed in many big chain hotels, I can understand why this one is so appealing to a woman travelling on her own. With bedrooms both up and downstairs it is also disabled friendly and has a quirky basement bedroom, with outside access as well as access from the main hotel, which provides a bit more privacy for your stay if you wish.
It is manned 24 hours a day by the owner Susan who is very approachable and catered to all of our needs. In talking with her I found out she has many repeat customers, who have got to know her and the hotel well. This I feel is one of it's key selling points- the personal treatment that is often lacking in larger establishments. I would feel quite happy taking my girlfriends here for a girly night in or out to stay in the annex at the back of the hotel that caters for more than two people. It has a lounge and kitchen as an aparthotel option to cater for all your self catering needs.
Thankyou to Susan and her daughter for all of your efforts to make sure we had a wonderful stay!
