Stayed here twice before so knew what to expect. Booked an hour before we arrived as a last minute trip. Room was ok but could do with an update, however it was very clean so to me that's more important. Bathroom looks dated and was clean enough, shower was nice and hot so no complaints there. On leaving the room... More

Paid £110.00 for 2 nights b & b. Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday. Basic room but you pay for what you get. Pleasant staff, clean room, quiet, good parking, good TV. The gym is nearly a miles away from the hotel, so hotel notes take the facility of the website and say membership is available to a local gym! Also... More

We stayed at Birch Hotel 2 weeks ago. We were attending a book-fair nearby. On our arrival, at about 9 30pm, the hotel was closing its doors for the night as it was very quiet. We asked for some drinks as the bar was closing but the lady at reception offered to bring our drinks to our room for us.... More

I stayed here overnight recently.The hotel was easy to find, just off the M62. I arrived late at night after the hotel had shut. They have a telephone outside the entrance and a very friendly man who turned out to be the chef quickly let me in. My room was very clean and very warm. Although the fittings were a... More

Booked this hotel based on the pictures online and turned up to a very different room. In reality the hotel is very outdated, dirty and stinks! The breakfast (which is cooked to order) is of a good standard, and the only good thing in this place.

I booked this hotel last minute for a business trip, I arrived late at night to find the room was dirty and dated, it seemed like they had started refurbishing the hotel but given in half way through. To make things worse, the lock on my door did not work so I had to wedge the door shut using folders.... More

Must say that all the staff were wonderful from the beginning. Can't say the same for the room with hair in the sink and shower. We were tempted into the restaurant for our evening meal which was the biggest mistake ever. In fact I would say that was the worse evening meal that has been put in front of me.... More

We booked this hotel while visiting relatives. We got a good deal through booking.com. The room was warm and clean with a good size TV. The bathroom was good with a good shower. However the bed was uncomfortable and creaky. The window was double glazed which kept the sound of the motorway away. However one of the panes was misted... More
