THE Pioneer has teamed up with luxury destination The Doubletree by Hilton Chester to offer our readers the chance to win an ‘Ultimate Day Break’

Pioneer readers have the chance to win the perfect day out at this fabulous brand new hotel that is the talk of Cheshire.

A lucky couple will win this outstanding prize, exclusive to The Pioneer, which includes: A spa day for two with full use of club and spa facilities; lunch in The Balcony Spa Café; a massage for two; a three-course meal in the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar & Grill.

The Doubletree by Hilton Chester hotel launched in May 2009 following a massive redevelopment and rebranding. Costing a total of £27.5m, now the club and spa is completed. The former Hoole Hall hotel has been transformed into a leading luxury retreat in the North West.

A team of expert interior designers and interior architects worked on the project to insure the magnificent 18th Century manor house achieved a contemporary feel while maintaining many original features.

The end result is an expertly balanced combination of old and new that exudes timeless elegance and sophistication.

Comfort has been high on the list of priorities at the Doubletree by Hilton Chester and the rooms are a testament to this. High thread count bedding, beautiful decoration, luxurious mattresses and the latest technology provide the perfect setting for the ultimate relaxing break.

One of the highlights at the Doubletree by Hilton Chester is the prestigious Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar & Grill. There aren’t many hotels where you can experience a luxury hotel, world-class spa and celebrity restaurant all in the same building.

General manager Tony Wright said: “The hotel has undergone a huge transformation and the difference between before and after the work is staggering.

“We are all thrilled with the launch of The Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar & Grill in February – it’s the final piece of the jigsaw for Doubletree by Hilton Chester”

Tucked within the Victorian walled garden of Doubletree Chester, facilities provided by The Club and Spa at Hoole Hall are second to none, offering the very best equipment and luxury treatments.

Paul Kelsall, club and spa manager, said: “It’s unlikely that you’ll see the opening of another luxury spa and state-of-the-art gym of this calibre in the UK for sometime.”

Guests staying at the hotel can enjoy the excellent facilities including the high spec, extra spacious gym that boasts the next generation of Technogym equipment including Visio, considered to be the most innovative digital platform for a workout.

Rarely found, sought-after features of the club and spa include an open air Watsu pool, hydrotherapy pool and the only Dreamwave meditation room in the UK!

Treatments in the luxurious spa include products from two of the most exclusive and respected beauty brands within the industry – haute couture niche spa and beauty brand, Anne Semonin Paris, and revolutionary natural source ingredient brand Pevonia.

The hotel and club and spa is located on Warrington Road, Hoole, Chester CH2 3PD. For further information, telephone Doubletree by Hilton Chester on 01244 408 800 or visit
