My wife and I stayed here overnight, to go out with my brother and his wife, who live locally in Urmston. I'm so glad we booked the thistlewood, lovely friendly staff, really comfortable bed, good bathroom facilities and the breakfast was excellent (especially those susuages!) Would recommend to anyone, great place.

Lovely b&b for the money with friendly staff and a wonderful breakfast! The hotel is clean and tidy with comfortable rooms providing all the standard things you would expect (hair dryer, TV, tea and coffee etc) Quiet and peaceful with beautiful gardens. Would recommend to others

A great little B & B close enough to Manchester, but far enough from the city to enjoy. Lovely building with some wonderful antiques in the lounge and breakfast room. A good WIFI connection and import for most travellers, a decent safe car park on site. There is a decent pub called the Urmaston 5 minutes walk that serves your... More

I was impressed when we arrived at the hotel the exterior is lovely, we got great value for money as even my bag was carried to my room for me. The room was good, the usual stuff (tea and coffee making facilities, TV hairdryer, toiletries) and we had a nice view over the gardens. We both slept really well. The... More

We stayed just one night to visit our daughter in Manchester. What a lovely surprise this hotel is. And so convenient for the city centre. It has its own car park which is quite big for a small hotel although the drive leading down to it is narrow. It has no reception area nut we were met by a friendly... More

We came to Manchester for a family party and stayed for one night, the hotel was incredibly clean, made very welcome, yes, it's slightly dated, but it adds to the quaintness.....beautifully tended gardens, and large car park at rear. Breakfast was a good standard and we were able to request extras without question, will definitely return. For me personally, I... More

We stayed at the Thistlewood for one night. Car park was good, tucked away around the back of the hotel. We were led up to our room by the friendly owner. We stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor. This may be a problem with this room but when we got up in the morning, there was... More

Warm clean and friendly with an excellent breakfast this hotel offers some character in the building so sorely lacking in the competitor chains. I was here for a few nights over Christmas but was pleased by the room and staff

The owners were warm and friendly people, helpful too. Breakfast hot and tasty, very clean room. Car park to rear of property. The only downside the hotel is very dated and nothing matched in the room.
