Facilities at Rookery Hall Hotel & Spa

The facilities include a stunning glass roofed 17 metre swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool, crystal steam room and sauna.  Members enjoy the very latest cardio-vascular and resistance gym equipment.

From the moment you arrive, think of Rookery Hall as your home, and there is no better way to do this than by heading to the Drawing Room and meeting the original family owners, whose portrait adorns the wall.

By day, the room affords peaceful views across the grounds and by night it is a cosy place to unwind, not least because of the open fires. It is the perfect place for sampling our afternoon tea, featuring homemade scones, fruit cake and, for some extra sparkle, a glass of Champagne.

Alternatively, enjoy a drink in the wood-panelled bar, play a game in the Drawing Room or sit out on the large, elevated terrace. On bright summer days it is hard to imagine a more relaxing spot.

History of the hotel

When Rookery Hall was built in 1816 it was known as "The Rookery, Worleston" and was the home of William Hilton Cooke, whose family portrait hangs in the Salon. 

Apart from owning Rookery Hall and 500 acres of surrounding land, Cooke was also the proprietor of a sugar plantation in Jamaica named Chester Castle. 

The next chapter comes in 1867 when Baron William Von Schroder bought the hall together with the park, farms and greenhouses, where vines were grown successfully. He was the son of Baron John Henry Von Schroder, founder of merchant bankers J Henry Schroder and Company.

Baron William became a justice of the peace, Lieutenant of the County of Cheshire and, finally, High Sheriff in 1888. He was a keen sportsman and loved hunting. He died in 1912 at the age of 71 and is buried in Worleston churchyard. 

The Von Schroder crest and coat of arms can be seen on the beautiful barrelled ceiling in the main dining room. The baron changed the traditional Georgian mansion into a small chateau. Furthermore, he was responsible for substantial additions to the building, giving the house the unusual character which makes it almost unique in this country. 

In 1990 a new wing was created and in 2007 the property was enhanced with a health club and spa, stylish new executive bedrooms

Relaxing mini break

Yvonne, Cheshire, stayed: August 2019

On the whole enjoyed the spa, the location and the ambiance. On the negative side our room smelt a bit musty on entering and this smell was left on my clothes on returning home. Room 1 is right next to the bins and they were emptied at 7 am so this was very disturbing.
The restaurant food was excellent and the staff very courteous however the service was at times slow, especially in the morning when it took over 20 mins to cook an egg.

A very pleasant stay but disappointed with spa

Anon, stayed: August 2019

Room was very nice and well maintained whilst we were there but quite dusty around the mirror and corners of the room. Shower door was damaged. Food was very good on the whole and service good. Drinks a little expensive. Spa was a bit disappointing and didn t really look like the online photo. Reception staff very helpful and welcoming.

We had a very disappointing and frightening event on the Saturday night . My daughter and her 8year old daughter were woken from 3am until 5am by violence outside their bedroom door. Wedding guests drunk, smoking and violent and shouting obscenities, the police had to be called. The 8 year old was very frightened. This was not what we paid for or expected of a venue like this. The staff were apologetic but shocked too it seems. The wedding guests should not have been near family private bookings.

Not particularly good value.

Helen, Lancashire, stayed: June 2019

Several areas need some TLC. A bit of weeding, a touch of paint and varnish would make a big difference.
The hotel is clean , but not sparklingly so.
There was plenty of variety for breakfast and the evening meal was good.

Fantastic two night stay - perfect for couples

SB, Shropshire, stayed: June 2019

I booked a two night stay at Rookery Hall as a surprise birthday present for my boyfriend at the end of June. It couldn't have been more perfect - even the sun put his hat on!

The hotel is ideal for a couples get-away - we would definitely go back.

There are lots of 'best bits', but the one thing that really makes Rookery Hall shine is the staff - they are fantastic. They couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating and they really went above and beyond to help me surprise my boyfriend with presents, balloons and a birthday cake. They made his birthday a very special one. We can't thank them enough.

First visit - 19th. June to 21st. June 2019 - Leasure time in Cheshire

EMO, Northumberland, stayed: June 2019

Reception was very good as were the restaurant staff at dinner. However, part of the deal we accepted as advertised by Offpeakluxuryhotels.com was not adhered to and it was only after complaining to management, and receiving an apology and a refund of 30.00 from them, that this was corrected. I suggested to them that, in future, they check the terms of agreement beforehand to avoid embarrassment of their customers.
The restaurant food at dinner was good and served in a pleasant room. However, the same room had been opened up into a larger space for breakfast on the second morning and was not at all comfortable for us. The tables weren't cleared quickly of empty plates and we were positioned in front of stairs leading to a raised portion of the room and were often nudged and bumped by waitresses and customers moving too and fro which, in my view, due to the position of our table, presented a safety hazard for these people. Perhaps there were just too many tables in that room that morning?
