We booked way back in March because we needed somewhere close to Tatton Park for the RHS show, when accommodation can be difficult to find. It is indeed convenient for both Tatton and the airport, but without any warning or communication we arrived to find a building site at the pub next door which was supposed to supply both breakfast...

Despite the pub being closed for refurb our stay was brilliant. Staff welcoming, room beautiful bathroom clean and funky. Thanks we will be back soon. This is so much better than mass chains of hotels that litter the area. Highly recommended

Came here for an over night stay with my partner. The rooms have recently been refurbished and they are immaculate, fresh and up to date. The pub was closed for renovation so we will definitely be returning again later this year. Loved it !!!!

We decided to book an Airport Hotel prior to our 0900 hrs take off, all the usual hotels came up on the web site which didn't appeal to us but in amongst them we found the Bulls Head. We booked the room online and on our arrival sorted the car parking for the duration of our holiday along with a... More

We recently stayed before flying from Manchester Airport. Great little place to have an over night stay before taking the short ride to the airport, being only 10 minutes maximum. For the price per room and location to the airport, you cannot go wrong.

Stayed here for 1 night on 30/6 too 1/7/2015 on return from holiday - Couldn't have picked a better place to stay was worth the money. Beautiful and very modern inside, clean and staff were very polite and helpful. Couldn't fault the place wish we had booked an extra night

Night porter gave us an early morning call at 4:30, quick check out and the taxi arrived on time. Bathroom and bedroom very clean and modern with large screen TV and coffee and tea making facilities. Would highly... More

Having booked a Saturday night stay and looking forward to a stonking good full English for breakfast and sampling the evening meals that are fully illustrated on the web site, imagine our dismay when we turn up and find that the pub is shut until September! No food available except for a possible continental breakfast 'if you like'. So we... More

Superb welcome at reception, very efficient check-in, sorted out parking the car as we were leaving it there for a few nights (£3 per night), ordered a taxi for us for the following morning, and offered us a container of fresh milk to make...

Stayed for one night before a flight from Manchester airport. The rooms were fantastic, clean, modern and very comfortable. Left before breakfast so cannot comment on that. Had a meal in the pub and a few drinks the night before, both food and drink were very nice and the whole place had a friendly atmosphere. Great place to stay and... More
