I throughly enjoyed my state at this hotel. I was there for a week with business and was looked after incredibly well. The staff were fantastic and always made a fuss when I was in the restaurant. The food was great and the breakfast was a great way to start the day. I'm looking forward to returning this evening for... More

Stayed one night in an executive room for £95. Secure parking, great location. Booked online and check in went very smooth. Good room, excellent bed, all the usual accoutrements plus slippers and robes provided. Made use of the spa, reasonable facilities, small pool but large steam room and separate saunas in changing rooms. Had a bar meal which was fine.... More

We had our wedding reception at The Thistle on the 5th June and we can't recommend it enough. Kath and her team were amazing, not just on the day but in the build up as well. From the initial meeting to the days leading up they helped us with everything. It had to be the most stress free wedding thanks... More

Stayed one night & apart from a comfy bed little else to compliment. The bedroom was small and quite dark and a long way from reception. No lift which for older or disabled people would be a problem if not on the ground floor. There was a wedding on & even though they had a separate marquee & room the... More

We had our wedding reception at the Thistle on Friday 19th June. I don't know where to start...Kath has been amazing from start to finish, the staff can't do enough for you.

Just had the most gorgeous meal in the restaurant at this hotel. Made all the better by the excellent service by Franco. This gentleman is an asset to the Hotel. He is polite and attentive but at the same time not intrusive. Just what you need. The food was tasty and well presented. Nothing was rushed and both my husband... More

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights (7th to 10th june '15) on a training course 10 miles away. The facilities were very good except for the poor 'free' internet access. I guess this was something to do with the area. The help and warmth from the staff was very good which made our stay relaxing;... More

Dear Sazzylover, Great name by the way. To get such positive feedback from a guest that has stayed for a week is fantastic, it can get a little dull being in the same place all week so I am really pleased that Val has managed to keep you entertained. Regards Adam More

I stayed at Thistle Haydock Park for 2 nights recently and was surprised by the grand design of the hotel and the facilities available. For the price I paid (£90) I was not expecting the brilliant grounds and an on-site swimming pool. The staff on reception were welcoming and friendly although they did not seem very familiar with bookings through... More
