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

GT, Cheshire, stayed: November 2018

I have stayed here several times through off peak luxury and have always had an amazing time. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. The fact you can arrive early in the morning and spend all day in the spa before checking in is fabulous. The food is very good and the selection at breakfast was fantastic. I will be back again

Very helpful staff , nice atmosphere

SW, Cheshire, stayed: October 2018

My friend and I booked a twin room for our overnight stay and spa break. We used the spa on arrival, which had sauna, steam room, swimming pool, jacuzzi. All the staff very helpful. Lots of guests on spa break at lunch wearing dressing gown, looked like some having a delicious afternoon tea. At 3pm we went to the hotel to book into our room. There was a delay, as the room was allocated as double, but we were upgraded to a twin in the executive side of the hotel. The staff were more than apologetic and extremely helpful. Evening meal was very tasty, nice and hot and staff very attentive. Very enjoyable stay

Recent stay

GP, Nottinghamshire, stayed: September 2018

Had an excellent 3-night stay. Food in restaurant was very good, only spoiled a little by some inexperienced waiting staff, who needed a bit more training (orders delivered to wrong table on more than one occasion, cooked breakfast seemed to have been forgotten until we reminded staff etc.). Despite this, staff were friendly and helpful. Room was very comfortable, and in very good order. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, even though we didn t get round to trying the spa.
