THE Cross Keys has reopened with a new-look interior – as well as an outdoor garden.

The King Street pub hotel has undergone a full refurbishment during its recent closure, with accommodation also transformed.

The 13 hotel rooms have been fully refurbished to offer high-spec en-suite bathrooms, with a mixture of family rooms, double rooms and single rooms available.

Meanwhile, the former hotel reception building at the back of the pub has been opened up into a large split-level garden complete with dedicated outside bar.

General manager Sarah Rees said: “I am so excited to welcome everyone to see the new and hugely improved Cross Keys.

"With a spectacular and spacious beer garden with its own Camden bar, it’s going to be the place to be.

“Inside we have plenty new offerings including a new bar and menu, but you can still find the same friendly faces.

"All 13 hotel rooms offer modern en-suite bathrooms and are fully fitted with a flat screen TV, free WiFi, Nespresso coffee machine, Dyson fan, and quality cotton linen."

The hotel at the heart of Knutsford has also brought the community into play, acting on suggestions to keep the town's heritage in focus.

Knutsford Guardian:

Sarah said: “The bedrooms have also been named by the local community after we asked for suggestions relating to Knutsford.

"We were overwhelmed with the response and guests can now stay in rooms like the Henry Royce suite and the bridal suite is named after Lady Jane Stanley.”
