I got married at the hotel on the 16-08-14, and must say it was unbelievable, I stayed over the night before the wedding and was made to feel welcome, the morning of the wedding the staff couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable, the whole ceremony, day and night went even better than we could've expected, the food was...

We stayed at the Thistle, Haydock for the weekend and had a very mixed experience. On arrival, we opened the door of one of our allocated rooms to find someone already in the bed - shoes on the floor - interesting to say the least! Then there was the heating (or lack of it). Reception assured us that if we... More

I recently booked a value double room incl breakfast as we were visiting the races. The room was spacious & clean but the furniture was quite shabby. The bed was a pull down one with wooden surround that made it impossible to use the bedside cabinets whilst in bed. The support slats under the bed stopped a foot short of... More

I got married in the thistle hotel on 25/07/14 and I cannot praise it enough! Right from the beginning I fell in love with the place when I first visited. I never thought it would be in my price range but we worked with Kath the wedding co-ordinator to make it work with our budget. Kath the wedding co-ordinator is... More

We only stayed here for one night, and I have to say it was pretty good. Even though you are quite close to the motorway you can't hear a thing. The beds were comfortable, and the rooms were clean. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good, and in the morning there was a good selection on offer.... More

Stayed here last week. £65 for bed and breakfast. They have a tired gym which does the job and a nice little pool. The breakfast was good as well. For £65 you will not go too far wrong staying here. It is nice and quite and the bed was very comfortable.

i could not recommend the thistle hotel enough for weddings! me and my husband chose the thistle for our wedding on 5th July 2014. The whole wedding took part here from ceremony to evening party. From the first day I met Kathy (wedding coordinator) right until the day of our wedding, she was perfect, nothing was to much trouble, emails... More

We stayed at the Thistle Hotel Haydock for a few nights in July and were pleased with our choice of hotel. To be frank, we found the approach to the hotel somewhat off-putting as we jolted over an unnecessarily vicious road hump on the drive into the car park ! Fortunately the hotel itself was much more welcoming with spacious... More

My 65th birthday treat was the F1 driving experience at the Three Sisters racing school and my wife and I booked for two nights B&B. Our first visit to the area and we had a very pleasant stay at Thistle Haydock. Nothing compares with the thrill and experience of the F1 day but the hotel was an added bonus as... More

It's a long time since we have stayed in a Thistle Hotel but our recent visit to this one will encourage us to check out others in the group. We booked in for one night en route to Is Of Man. We reckon our stay here was better than booking into a Liverpool hotel. It offers Free Secureish parking. A... More

Adam C, Manager at Thistle Haydock, responded to this review

Hi Jim, Thanks for the Feedback, What a shame that we were "almost" Excellent. I think we may have a solution for that in the future if you return, As we do have some quieter rooms in the hotel that we can allocate on request. Your lovely comments about breakfast and the staff are really appreciated. Hope to see you... More
