We spent Christmas 2012 in the Curry House with our son who lives in NYC and his dog. Having travelled over from England, we had no prior knowledge of the hotel or its numerous houses situated on the outskirts of Manchester. We were not disappointed, the owners were very gracious and hospitable and nothing was too much trouble.
The Curry house is fine for anyone wishing to ski or board in nearby Stratton, about 30 minutes drive away, or Bromley, about 15 minutes drive, and Manchester is an absolute delight for the shops and outlets.
Whilst we were unable to use the full facilities of the hotel, (no dogs allowed) it was certainly decorated very seasonally, including large Christmas trees ( the owner even put a fully decorated tree in the house for our benefit )
We had 15 inches of snow one day, the snow ploughs were out frequently and staff were on hand to ensure we had wood for the fires and sufficient food, and to help dig out the cars and keep pathways clear.....what more could you ask for ?
If we were to be critical, the furnishings in The Curry House are a little dated, and some of the carpets would benefit from a shampoo. In the kitchen, there were more than enough plates, mugs and glass's but if you intend catering for large numbers, the cooking utensils are somewhat limited.
Overall, it is good value for money, and we would certainly revisit the area and the hotel.
