Really nice place to stay, lovely rooms , immaculately clean and I felt safe and secure travelling on business alone . I will be back on a regular basis . Found a hidden gem . 2 Min walk away there is a big store called Booths for any special foodie treats, there is a fantastic beauty salon spa opposite there.... More

My husband and I stayed here before travelling to Manchester Airport. The rooms were FAB so modern and clean. Only low point was the TV did not work at all and were not advised of this at booking - this was a slight disappointment when we arrived.

Hi, thanks for your review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay but disappointed regarding your tv, so apologies if you reported it & nothing was done about it. They are only 6months old & a working t.v. is the least our guests should expect, I sincerely hope this hasn't put you off a second visit as we hope you will... More

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

Thanks for the recommendation, we like to think we offer value for money & a great nights sleep, which we think are the two most important things on an overnight stay, our pub will be opening in September & we cant wait for you all to see it, & we look forward to your next visit Regards Tim General Manager More

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
