All you need to know – Mercure Abbots Well Hotel

Whitchurch Road, Christleton, Chester CH3 5QL

We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at Mercure Abbots Well Hotel – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!

Location: Mercure Abbots Well Hotel 3 miles from Chester city centre in Christleton.

Parking: Ample free parking within the Hotel car park and Health Club car park. When entering the hotel car park, follow the signs for the Health Club, which is situated behind the main hotel.

Essential information:

If your child is attending our Floaties, Splashers or Kickers classes or is not yet fully toilet trained they must comply with our 'Double Nappy' policy. Please use an approved snug-fitting neoprene (or other similar fabric) swim nappy such as our Puddle Ducks swim nappy. Under this, your child will need a reusable cotton swim nappy with a disposable liner such as our Eco NappyWrap & Liner or a disposable swim nappy. 

The design of our Puddle Ducks swim nappy (stretchy neoprene with snug fitting deep waistband and leg cuffs) ensures that all ‘little accidents’ stay inside the nappy with the reusable cotton swim nappy or disposable swim nappy underneath providing an extra layer of protection (and making any ‘accidents’ so much easier to get rid of!). 

TIP: A swim nappy needs to be snug around the legs and waist to do its job properly (but not too tight!)

  • The swimming pool is part of the Hotel’s Feel Good Health Club
  • Please bring your own padlock to be able to use the changing room lockers
  • Baby splash pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi are for use by club members only
  • You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page

Photography: It is acceptable to carry phones with you and to take photos in 'Splash Time', however, please take great care not to include other children/parents from the class (unless you have their permission) and do not use your phones in the changing rooms.

Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks have use of a roped off area during hire times.
