Nice building, easy parking, comfortable bed, spotlessly clean, super staff, nice breakfast in pleasant surroundings, all the things we hope for. The only criticism we could make was that while a small fortune had obviously been spent on the building in the past, maintenance hadn't kept up. The cracks and creases needed a little work to return it to its... More

I travel extensively on business and first impressions are very important to me. First impressions are not good pulling up to the main entrance from a very busy main road. The car park is extremely generous, well lit at night (and Free!). Initial thoughts were that the outside of The Birch Hotel looks a bit like a 1980's Residential Nursing/Care... More

Dear Richard, Thank you for your review. The hotel was once a mill owner’s home and, as it is a slightly rural location, it has externally retained some of the characteristics which adds to the country feel. I am pleased to hear your welcome was warm and Magdalena will be happy to hear this. I am sorry to hear your... More

I stayed here with my Husband for the night, the room was dirty, and did not smell fresh. The window of the room was open when we got into the room, i later realised this was because it was broken and could not close. The room was dark and in need of better lighting. In the morning there was only... More

The hotel is a little aged, but the staff are absolutely lovely, the receptionist was so friendly and helpful. Our room was quite small and the shower was a bit hot and cold, but for £70 so close to Manchester it was fine. Very good location for the Phones 4 U arena, it took us 20 minutes on a Saturday...
