Where to stay in the Manchester area?

As a surprise Christmas gift, I gave my husband a 2-hour driving lesson at the Land Rover Driving School in Manchester. We are thinking of booking the lesson in the beginning of May and are trying to find a nice place to stay. The Equinox is a bit over the top for us, but I would like to stay at a well-maintained inn, with updated rooms. I'd also appreciate any suggestions for a good restaurant or two in the area. Thanks!

I loved staying at The Inn at Manchester; it has both a main house and a carriage house with a variety of rooms. I also really enjoyed dinner at Ye Olde Tavern, an authentic colonial-era building (which has an excellently-priced early-bird menu before 6:00 pm), but if that style doesn't appeal to you there are many other places that look nice

It was early May when I stayed and the town was quite lovely for walking around. The lilacs were blooming abundantly, which was a treat for me since we have few lilacs where I live.

Here is another place to consider. The Palmer House is in the opposite direction from the Land Rover School but very close to the center of town and the Ye Old Tavern. http://www.palmerhouse.com/.

Pretty much anywhere you stay in Manchester, is very close to the school. I would ask if you have checked the other properties owned by the Equinox. There is the 1811 House across the road, I'm not sure what the cost is. I would also spend you to the Ormsby Hill http://www.ormsbyhill.com/history.html which is just a little south of the Equinox. Also just on the other side of town is the Stamford Motel http://www.thestamfordmotel.com/ which has been redone very recently and has a great steakhouse right on site.
