We were seated in a georgeous booth...all seemed good.......tea pots came ...but no milk or strainer for the loose leaf tea - by the time they came our tea was stewed! The sandwiches came after 30mins wait...the bread was a poor quality white, fillings unimaginative and basic.My sister was first to cut into a scone, she tried a sawing action... More

The rooms are not large but very comfortable and clean. Also mostly quiet. The breakfast was a tad chaotic but the food was good. Evening meal (fish) was very tasty and good portion size. It is about 30 mins walk (£10) taxi to knutsford. Wifi is free but there was no phone reception in the room. Gym was well stocked... More

Was here for a business event. Parking is ample. Hotel looked very nice. Staff were very friendly. Easy access to the M6 They serve tea and coffee and the meeting room facilities were very nice. Next door is a garden centre and the Inn is only 10 mins away from the M6.

Stayed for 2 nights with my wife , could not fault the hotel in any way ! Great connections into manchester and only 15 mins from the airport. Would recommend to anybody looking to stay in the area. The pool area and spa was also in great condition and my wife enjoyed her treatments .

After a bad experience at Manchester airport, I arrived at the hotel feeling very grumpy and in a bad mood this, however, very soon changed. As soon as I walked through the door there was someone to help with my luggage and reception was both efficient and very welcoming with someone bringing all my luggage (I was embarking on a... More

We had a few technical problems during our stay, but the staff were really nice. Night duty manager couldn't be more helpful, she was excellent. New rooms are very nice, decent gym. Plenty of parking and really convenient if you're staying in the area and not far off the motorway

We arrived at the Cottons hotel following a long journey through everything the British weather could throw at us and the rather unassuming exterior didn't do a lot to lift our spirits. However on entering we were met by a very efficient and friendly member of staff on reception who, swiftly, checked us in, made restaraunt booking and explained the... More

No real reception , security lapse , cones in entrance , no milk in the coffee shop , dirty cups , dusty area where cups are stored , odd way up to meeting rooms , empty fridge , slippery pathways and it's only worth 3 stars . Mercure do it better for less .

We have stayed on several occasions over the years. There were one or two changes to the bar and restaurant. The room was comfortable, if a little tired. The restaurant is worthy of mention. The evening staff are attentive and well informed. If you enjoy your wine and are prepared to pay a little more, take advice from the senior... More
