Cosy within the Shropshire countryside, the Macdonald Hill Valley Hotel is between the towns of Whitchurch and Grindley Brook, set amid acres of peaceful gardens and verdant golf course. Close to a National Nature Reserve, the hotel provides a peaceful retreat for outdoorsy-types and serenity-seekers alike. Each guest bedroom has en suite facilities, a tea tray, a TV and complimentary toiletries. In the restaurant, there is a focus on fresh, seasonal fare. The sports bar is a casual meeting place for golfers, residents and guests with plasma TVs showing sporting events, well-stocked bar and range of traditional cuisine. The lounge bar is a cosy spot for the Sunday papers, afternoon teas and pre-dinner cocktails. In the spa, guests can step into the thermal suite, heated pool, gym, treatment rooms, mud rasul therapy room and tranquillity area, helping cares and troubles to melt away. Golfers will find a haven of opportunity on the two 18-hole courses which blend with the verdant surrounds of the hotel, with a pro shop on site.
