“This is an excellent hotel for both business & pleasure”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

We are a company who carryout infrastructure projects in the Greater Manchester and Lancs area. The 2 engineers who stayed could not fault this hotel and praised its welcome, comfort and the cooked breakfast. We will certainly be using Birch Hotel in the future and would highly recommend it.

From the 1st phone call to make my booking I was impressed, was met with a warm and inviting smile on checkin and was asked how my day had gone, was put on the 1st floor initially but the lady easily moved me to the ground when I requested.
Evening meals are delicious and so well presented! Breakfast is cooked to order which is fantastic! Never felt as invited and relaxed in any other hotel as I have in this one!
I work a lot in Manchester and will not be bothering to look anywhere else on my business travels, the Birch is best for me!. Thank you all

i stayed one night and made use of the function room.

The function room was already set out for me with drinks facilities provided.

I held a product training evening there for approx 30 people it was comfortable and plenty of room for demonstrations.
The room was basic but warm and clean, the bed was comfortable and was situated around the back so was very quiet.
breakfast was included and was plentiful with the choice of fruit, cereal,yogurt and toast accompanied by a full English.

The staff are very friendly and efficient and make you feel very welcome.
i would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and colleagues.

I have to admit the only times I've been here is for family wakes, so all I can say is the service is excellent, food average, no idea of price of meals but the drinks are reasonable enough, would come again on a more pleasant occasion so I can give you a better idea of the place !

We decided to go to The Birch with friends to take all the hassle out of New Years Eve celebration. It was a good choice. Easy check-in , pleasant room, great meal, good Abba tribute act, super disco, reasonable bar prices and delicious brunch breakfast. What's not to like ?
Deserving particular mention are the staff who were friendly, welcoming, in some cases highly entertaining and hard working. I was especially impressed by the way the meal was served, everyone on each table got each course one after the other and there was no waiting for everyone to get their meal. This was true for tables of 2 or 20.
I'd definitely do it again.

We go to the Birch Hotel for New years eve every year, as it is such a great night and good value.
You are served a very acceptable three course meal and the wine list is good at reasonable prices.
All the staff are very friendly and can't do enough to please.
There is a tribute act after the meal, this year it was "Abba 2nite" a girl duo who were very entertaining and sang well.
The female DJ is entertaining and has everybody on the dance floor for most of the night.
Overall, a good night at a reasonable price.

We booked this hotel on a new years eve package. Bed, breakfast, evening meal and entertainment which was an Abba tribute band. I am not much into Abba but they were brilliant. The hotel was clean, the evening meal was very good considering they were catering for a full house and all being served at the same time. The brunch/breakfast was very good and they were even serving steak and lamb chops! But, most of all the staff were amazing, attentive friendly and very helpfull. The manager deserves a pat on the back as they made this experience and our stay feel like we were staying in a hotel with double the star rating. Thanks for a very memorable new year.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the first floor as we were awaken by people walking around in the room above us...
