My husband stumbled across this establishment whilst looking online for somewhere for us to go to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We often go down to London & go to a show, however the Hotel we usually stay in was fully booked, so when he said he had found an interesting alternative & we were going to a lovely B&B in Rochdale, I was somewhat surprised to say the least!

Our room was not a disappointment, it was spacious, immaculately clean and full of interesting antiques, the bed was exceptionally comfortable and there was a plentiful supply of tea,coffee & biscuits!
Our host Paul was very friendly and interesting to talk to about the property, he was very helpful with directions to the Waterside Restaurant, which we had already booked for our evening meal and is also highly recommended, and he did everything possible to make sure we had an enjoyable stay.
We enjoyed a lovely Full English Breakfast, cooked to order by Paul, and there were plenty of cereals, fruit, yogurts, toast & preserves on offer to set us for the day as well as a selection of fruit juices, tea and coffee.

The Oriental room has good en-suite facilities but no bath. The shared bathrooms all have lovely, la...
