Best Western Crewe Arms Hotel
The Crewe Arms was built in 1837 and was the worlds first railway hotel. The exterior is a sight to behold, made of red brick and crested with carved reliefs. When Queen Victoria stayed on her way to Scotland an underground tunnel was constructed to link the Hotel to the station to provide Her Majesty with privacy and protection from the weather. A bust of Victoria survives above a marble fireplace. Owned by various railway companies until 1969, it is now part of the Best Western franchise. It is a little dated, but in a characterful and charming way, with clean and comfortable bedrooms accessed by a lift. Rooms have free Wi-Fi and tea/coffee making facilities.
