Innkeepers Lodge hotels are part of the Whitbread brewing group, and as you might expect there is an emphasis on food and drink in this chain of pubs dressed as B&B hotels. A comprehensive continental breakfast buffet is included in the room rate (also inclusive of wifi internet access), and appears to be a standard catering offering across the group.... More

If you are travelling alone and looking for a bed overnight, this place will fulfil all your needs. We however were a couple and the room was very small, the TV did not work, the wifi was very erratic upstairs and the traffic woke us at 5am. The breakfast - continental, with hot options, was served in a soulless area... More

We stayed here over a weekend for a wedding in the local area. The pub is nice; lovely setting (sitting outside with a chilled glass of wine in the evening sun was lovely!), good selection of food and drinks on the menu and an easy check in. We stayed in room 5 which didn't have a bath - and now... More

We stayed here for one night, check in was swift and everything we needed to know was explained to us. When we got to our room we was very pleasantly surprised how big, clean and bright it was, the bed was comfortable, the en suite which was a bath with shower over was very clean and spacious with complimentary toiletries....

Stayed here as was going to a wedding at Capesthorne Hall - short drive away, good location. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Was concerned the road may disturb me but I slept really well. Hotel itself is noisy but once the bar closes (at 11) it is very quiet. Wifi didn't work - but I could have gone... More

Stayed here twice recently for work, the pub itself is nice in public spaces with gastropub style and menu. Had same room no 5 both times - compact double but nicely done out with walk in shower. Couple of tatty edges to decor, including broken shower door handle and shower head but ok. The tea and coffee is good in... More

We stayed for a couples weekend. The hotel was lovely, it had a great bar and restaurant. We didn't try the food, but it did look good. The rooms are lovely, but in ours the toilet roll holder was held together with, masking tape!!(room 9). But this was a minor issue. The staff were very friendly. You actualy check in... More

Used this as a base for an evening business meeting in Alderley Edge. Check in at the bar was efficient enough, and the room itself was a pleasant surprise - spacious, clean and tidy and with a comfortable bed. Basic tea & coffee making was fine, and the bathroom had a large walk-in shower. Breakfast was very good - freshly... More

As I was travelling to the area for work and didn’t intend to explore, I can’t judge the location but the Innkeeper’s Lodge seemed to me to be a pretty safe option if you find yourself in the outskirts of Manchester. The room, whilst sparsely decorated and slightly lacking in a little character, was spacious, tasteful and comfortable; the staff,... More

Check in was at the bar. The barmaid was trying to check us in and serve drinks, this gave the appearance of being a little chaotic but she was welcoming. We were asked to pay for the room on arrival which I found unusual! The room was at the front of the hotel and was very large and exceptionally clean... More
