Alternative accommodation Choices

So, it may seem quite strange that we are writing a blog post about alternative accommodation choices when we are a bed and breakfast but hopefully it will make sense!

Family Rooms and Health and Safety within our Accommodation

We get enquiries from people that may be looking for something that we do not provide- for instance we do not provide a family room within our accommodation.  Others do!  All our rooms are specifically, and only, for two (or single) adults.

There’s a good reason for this – one is that it’s a legal necessity to comply with local planning and building regulations and two it’s for safety!  Our rooms are not built to accommodate more than two people each, and we would be breaking fire safety laws if we accepted more in the room – and we’ve been asked but had to politely decline which can put both us and guests in an awkward situation!

So even if you have a spare bed or cot – it’s just not possible and we would never put our guests at risk – hence why we have made this blog post so you can look at the different accommodation choices available around us.

More than 3 sets of adults – a hotel may be better?

Rarely, we get asked if we have more rooms available then is on our booking system and website – the short answer is ‘no’ I’m afraid!  What is available on the booking site is what’s available – 3 rooms.  There are some great B&B’s that can accommodated more than us and certainly lot’s of hotels, although we know that they may not be near, say, to Oulton Park or the venue you wish to attend, they could offer an alternative to us.

Accommodation Closer to Major Roads and Motorways

A strange one this but some people do want to be nearer to the road and motorway system.  Hopefully, anyone requiring this would have looked at our website and map and realised that we are in the heart of the Cheshire Countryside – something we love and others do too.  You will also notice that we are very close to the major A49 which links Cheshire and the surrounding counties and we are within a short drive of the motorways too – please do take a look at Google Maps for this information as there are hotels that offer accommodation very close to the motorways around us.

Evening Meals and Accommodation Extras

We don’t provide evening meals here at Porthkerry House nor do we have a jacuzzi nor gym!  In fairness, we have only yet been asked about the evening meals aspect and we politely ask guests to make a choice between the two pubs within walking distance of ourselves (literally 2 minutes’ walk either left or right!).  We provide you with a great breakfast to start your day and will never delve into the evening meal territory – we leave that for others.

There are plenty of accommodation options around us that offer an evening meal, including The Red Lion Inn – the only other B&B so close to Oulton Park and which has wonderful hosts as well as being a great pub with evening food.

So why choose Porthkerry House Bed and Breakfast as your accommodation choice?

So we don’t have family rooms; no evening meals; no jacuzzi and not on top of a motorway system.

What we do offer you is a great, friendly welcome.  A fabulous breakfast.  A comfortable nights sleep.  Accommodation set in a beautiful village and in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.  Walking distance to Oulton Parks East Gate (when open).  Parking.  Luxurious White Company toiletries.  Powerful Mira showers.  Maybe the odd glimpse of our dog Asha (she’s not allowed in the public areas!).  We are an honest B&B just wanting to offer you a great stay – that’s what our accommodation is about.

We have honest reviews (and they are by actual guests that have stayed!) and listen to what our guests have to say – which currently is “Don’t change a thing….”.  See our rooms and reviews.

So below is a list of all the alternative accommodation choices around us – it’s obviously your choice, but we hope you consider us first!

Alternative Accommodation:

First – we would always recommend The Red Lion Inn – not only is it in the same village as us but it has great hosts, a welcoming atmosphere, a family room and evening meals!

TravelLodge – the nearest to us here in Little Budworth, Tarporley and to Oulton Park is in Middlewhich which is 7.3 miles away with close links to the M6.

People often use the Premier Inn for the Oulton Park and the motorway networks (A49) circuit although this is a driving distance away in Sandiway, Northiwch.

The nearest Holiday Inn Express is in Crewe but this is approximately 10 miles away from Oulton Park, Little Budworth and Tarporley.

There is the MacDonald Portal Hotel in Tarporley with a great golf course and all the usual mod cons a large hotel chain can provide and there is The Crown Hotel in Tarporley which is great for people wanting to stay in the village of Tarporley itself.  We have to also mention the new 32 by The Hollies which is just opening as this blog post is being uploaded (this is a hotel, bar and restaurant).

On the Oulton Park accommodation page you can find alternative places to stay too as there are just too many to list here!  Such as campsites, further B&B places to stay and more.

So, hopefully you can see now why we wrote this blog, to show you some alternative accommodation choices and to help you make a decision over your stay – we look forward to, hopefully, welcoming you as a guest but we are also willing to share our competitor’s information to ensure you really do get the stay you want in a place that meets all your needs!
