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

The Merlin [now you get the title?] is a period property with contemporary style on the outskirts of Alderley Edge. The room we had was spacious and could easily have accomodated a family - although thankfully we had escaped the kids this time. The en-suite shower room was very stylish in its design. The bed was comfortable and the room... More

Stayed here on two occasions recently for business trip. The rooms are as good or better than the more famous Alderley Edge hotel. Make sure you get a room that faces away from the main road, otherwise you'll hear the traffic. The restaurant is decent. Inconveniences are (i) no wifi or wired internet availability in the room. If you have... More

We needed to stay for just one night to visit an elderly relative in the area. The rooms were clean and and very comfortable. The shower was exceptional. All the staff we met were just great, keen and very helpful. We will certainly go back !!

This is a charming, small hotel with beautiful and comfortable rooms. As the building is quite old, I was expecting something more or less outdated, but luckily this wasn't the case: room was nice, rather modern and generally pleasant. Also the bathroom was functional and clean. There was a free wifi in the room, and it worked well after you... More
