The 40 year history of Hill Valley started in 1975, founded by
Albert Minshall, a local businessman making his initial fortune in
construction. The property started out as a popular Shorpshire golf
club and has grown over the years to the successful operation we
know today, Macdonald Hotels took ownership in early 2000.
We are well known locally for our excellent cuisine, we are also
regarded as a premier wedding venue in Shorpshire and often host to
large corporate companies for conferences and annual award dinners.
Guests can enjoy our luxurious Vital Health & Wellbeing
Spa which is fully equipped with a 20 meter swimming pool, rock
sauna, steam room, state of the art Technogym and eight beauty
therapy rooms using the finest Elemis products.
My career started over 15 years ago in Birmingham preparing food
as a commis chef in a five star hotel. During my early years of
training, I was fortunate enough to attend college on day release
course to learn about hospitality, one of my many passions is
cookery and I still love to cook now.
I decided that this was not the career path for me so then spent
the remainder of my career learning about every aspect of hotel
life and eventually gaining my first General Manager position. My
survival (and often sanity) can be attributed to the love and
support of my wife and two children - two girls! I am
fortunate enough to have a hugely supportive team here, who are
fully committed to delivering the highest standards of hospitality,
quality and service to our guests taking pride in everything they
I do hope that you have a memorable and enjoyable visit to
Macdonald Hill Valley Hotel, Golf & Spa and we look forward to
welcome you soon!
