“A nice stay”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

We stayed here as a last minuet plan for £50. Although the hotel is a little tired, for example the bedroom doors, carpets etc look old and worn we had a very pleasent stay. The staff were very helpful and overall the hotel is in a nice location and very easy to get to from the M62. There is also a nice pub over the road which serves food till 9pm.
The room was large with a lovely modern bathroom and everything was very clean. The towels were white and fluffy and warmed on the towel rail which made my stay very cosy. I must also say that the bed was very comfy. I didn't want to get up:-)
I would return to this hotel.

My significant other and I stayed here during our visit to the UK. They were very friendly from the second we walked in. The room was okay, a little run down. They have a nice lounge/bar area that was very comfortable. The restaurant has good food, definitely try the daily curry special; the chef clearly knows his Indian food!

My partner and I have been visiting the Birch Hotel for the past 6 months or so.
When there has been a problem the staff were apologetic and resolved the issue promptly.

There are free passes to the local Virgin Active gym. The staff are always friendly and helpful.

We will be visiting again, even when my partners course at Virgin Active is completed.

Room Tip: We like room 10, it has a bath and shower!

We stayed here 2 years ago and it was a bit of a shambles. We decided The Birch should get a second chance and we're glad we have it that.
Yes there appears to be booking issues if using the Internet but the rooms are now BEAUTIFUL! Breakfast was to die for and the lovely lady on reception really made our stay.
It's no Hilton Hotel but a lovely well priced stay for a shopping weekend away.

Our AGM has now come and gone, and I just wanted to thank you and all the members of the team for your friendliness and co-operation. As far as we were concerned it all went like clockwork. The facilities were ideal for what we needed. It was an wonderful dinner - as I think some of us have already told you. All this and a bar to relax in after the dinner - and all followed by a very comfortable night's sleep and a great breakfast.

The meeting was graced by the presence of the Mayor & Mayoress of Rochdale who waxed lyrical about the venue. We also had the local choir "More than Melody" whose performance went very well in the Function Room.
