The De Vere Daresbury Park Hotel
I stayed in the De Vere Daresbury Park Hotel while in the Daresbury area.
In some respects, it's just your regular quite pleasant modern hotel.
What makes it somewhat interesting and well worth a visit if you're in
the area is that the decorating theme of the hotel is based on the works of
Lewis Carroll (born in the nearby
village of Daresbury).
The Lewis Carroll theme appears throughout the hotel so make sure that you
take a good look around (including all the way around the hotel on the
first floor (one floor above ground level)).

I've also stayed in the De Vere Cavendish St. James Hotel at 81 Jermyn Street just a few blocks
from Piccadilly Circus in London (I don't stay too often as it is just a bit
above my price range but I certainly enjoy it when I'm there).
Just in case you're wondering - nobody is paying for my positive comments
about the two De Vere hotels.

One of a handful of statues of characters from Lewis Carroll's books
located in the grounds around the hotel.

A rather interesting Lewis Carroll themed clock which hangs from
the ceiling of the hotel's lobby.
