“Nice 1 night stay”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Friendly staff, clean room, "in the basement" with a room above which obviously had a member of staff sleeping there, as they were up & about at 6.30am, which woke us up. Not too much of a problem though. Had to pay extra for cooked breakfast, but it was very good. Walking distance from Sale centre, which was a bonus.
All in all a nice friendly hotel.

We chose the hotel because it looked cozy and bit like "Fawlty Towers" on the photo. It proved to be very cozy and friendly. But without a John Cleese to mess everything up. In fact this is a hotel that both I and my 14 year old son would love to revisit. What it lacks in modern and streamlined facilities it compensates by far by helpful staff, warm atmosphere and a very authentic setting.

Hola Thorkild6219,
Thank you so much for your kind review. I think you summed us up & what we are trying to achieve here very well!
I will pass on your kind remarks to Basil on his return! He had to go to Hospital as a moose's head fell on him!! Can you believe that?
We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to England.
Best regards Manuel (Stand in manager)

Situated in a quiet cul de sac, this family owned and run boutique hotel is traditionally and tastefully decorated with a cosy bar and good bistro meals for those nights when you don't want to go out. Walking distance to the Sale town centre and metro. Our room faced the back of the hotel and was very quiet but cramped, with too much furniture, leaving no room for suitcases. The bathroom was spotless but tiny. The owner and staff were friendly and very helpful. We'd stay here again!

Stayed here with my brother for the football Man U v the mighty Saints (Southampton). 1-1 draw
It is in a perfect location for both football grounds and Manchester City Centre.
5 minute walk to Sale town and £2.60 return on Metro to Old Trafford, it really was seamless both ways!
We had a very good twin bedded room (31) on the top floor, there is no lift but its not a problem for most, I would think.
The staff were great very friendly and most helpful.
Wet some very nice fans from Norway in the bar later in the evening and the Full English was the perfect pick me after the night before!
We hope we will be back in April for the game at Man City if not before!

This hotel is in a great location in a very quiet road and within 5 to 10 minutes walk from Sale Town centre where there are shops and plenty of restaurants( we ate at Mimi's twice in our three night stay). There is also a station for the Metro tram system in Sale From where we travelled into the heart of Manchester for £3.80 return in about 10 minutes. You can also get to Salford Quays and it stops right next to the Lancashire Cricket ground at Old Trafford. Amazing service.

The Staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. There is a Bistro at the Hotel which is open Monday to Thursday but if you want to bring in takeaway they are more than happy for you to use their plates, cutlery etc and eat in the restaurant or bar. The bar is open to 11pm and has recently been refurbished. Very comfortable chairs and a good ambiance.

The rooms are a little dated but are very clean and comfortable. Everything you need is provided. Please be aware that there a a number of stairs to climb to rooms on the upper floors. I believe that they are refurbishing the rooms as money becomes available.
Breakfast is served in the Bistro and is excellent. The cooked breakfasts are huge and will set you up for the day.

This is a gem of a hotel and would definitely stay again if visiting Manchester or going to watch cricket at Old Trafford.

I liked this hotel, it's old fashioned, with personal service, and a great English breakfast. The location is great, I could get into Manchester quite quickly and there are loads of local pubs and restaurants. There's a big park and the end of the road if you like walking. Really nice.

was originally given a single room as evidenced by a single towel in the tiny bathroom, moved to another room, with bath that had a shower which could only accommodate tiny people, the floor squeaked, the bed was a board & squeaked as well, the room was a fire exit! looked as if it was an "after thought" really weird. seemed because we booked through an agency we were given the rooms that were only for people who booked direct & therefore no agency fee to pay! had stayed there previously & enjoyed the place, but was made to feel like a poor cousin, & had this reinforced by the written notice in the rooms, stating that a discount would be given if not booked through an agency! Was a little taken aback by this, thought all guests were equal.

Dear Tripadvisor customers,
Is it me or does this review not make sense? I think it maybe a case of 'you can't please all of the customers all the time'
Please feel free to check out our other reviews!
All the best for a great day.
