Working in Manchester for three days I used Trip Adviser to locate the Thistlewood Hotel which was within 8 minutes of the workplace. Having booked two rooms we received a great welcome on arrival despite being covered in dust and grime from crawling about under a church and we were shown to our rooms and everything explained. The room was... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night, there was no bar, The rooms were very outdated, the shower was more like a fast drip, Breakfast was very poor, very small room, wouldn't stay there again or recommend it, good point was there was good parking.

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

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
