My husband and I stayed at the Thistlewood last Wednesday evening. We were given room 9, at the very top of the house, up three flights of stairs. We assumed that this was because all of the other rooms were taken, but we were only joined by one other couple the next morning at breakfast. There may of course been... More

Positives - the building, free parking, spotless clean, very comfortable bed, excellent value @ £65 for a double room and a truly fantastic home cooked breakfast. Negative and the only one - heating clicked off in the night and in a cold February the room was chilly.

This is a lovely old House and for what they charged (compared to other places) I could find things to pick fault with if it were a 5* establishment but it wasn't instead it was a lovely old place, very well presented and spotless !. My room was only small, but again it was spotlessly clean, the wifi was a... More

I found the B&B ok, I drove down the very narrow private road to the very secluded car park and parked up. I must admit, at this point, I was quite nervous. Being alone in the car park with no lighting whilst walking back up the road to the front door was quite daunting. This disappointed me immediately. I was... More

I only had one night here but enjoyed my stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful, even changing my room so I could check in a little early. The room was not big but comfortable and had all I needed. Breakfast was cooked fresh and I was asked if I wanted more. Nothing was too much trouble. My only... More

The room is very very small, and bathroom has carpet which kind of put me off a little bit. The wifi is also very very slow, almost unusable. Otherwise friendly owners and clean room. Breakfast is also nice.

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
