Take the ten minute drive from Stoke on Trent's City Centre to the Tollgate at Blurton and you could be in for a surprise. During the 32 years since the Tollgate first opened its doors as a squash club, a great deal of work has gone into developing a leisure and hotel complex that its owners justifiably claim as having a range of facilities that are unique in North Staffordshire. The individual attention clients receive from staff is a major benefit for members and hotel guests.
Privately owned by the Oldfield family, who originate from the North Staffordshire area, Tollgate Hotel and Leisure has built a reputation for service and in addition to its popularity with members, is used by Stoke City Football Club as well as the Staffordshire Police and Fire Services. Several major businesses, such as Barclays Bank, hold corporate events and memberships at the Tollgate.
