I'm not often compelled to write reviews for anything, but for Brooklands Lodge I can make an exception! Along with a group of friends that we don't see often enough, my wife and I stayed at Brooklands in December 2008 to enjoy the wonderful Christmas Market in Manchester, to do some Christmas shopping and to generally spend some quality time catching up on the latest happenings.
From the moment of booking through to our final goodbyes, the owners couldn't have been more friendly and attentive whilst strangely and seamlessly blending in to the background until you needed them. Steve and Angela Vernon are wonderful hosts and should be truly proud of Brooklands for what they have achieved not only with the rooms and the quality of their presentation, but also for the air of warmth and friendliness that is ever present.
Check-in was simple and our room was great - easily large enough for the two of us with plenty of space for sleeping or just chilling out. Cleanliness was superb, and the facilities are as you would hope - plenty of scope for making tea, an essential on all my travels! There are also lots of little touches that make it special, like the chocolates on the table in the room. We opted for the cooked breakfast, which for the small additional price was exceptional - thoroughly recommended. Steve's picked up some great tips on cooking the best breakfast and was more than happy to share them with us! :-)
The location is superb - far enough out of town to have its own beautiful character but only minutes away from the Brooklands Metro (tram) station which provided our easy shopping access whilst allowing us not to worry about parking, or about a designated driver when we felt the compelling urge to sample the mulled wine at the Christmas Markets!
I can't really think of anything that would make Brooklands better and indeed we're already planning a return visit and have recommended it to a number of our closest friends.
