In the past when visiting friends in Dukenfield we stayed in travel lodge type accommodation so we were pleasantly surprised to discover, on-line, that Barton Villa was located there. We arrived to a friendly welcome and were given one of the attic bedrooms. The room was large enough to contain a double and single armchair with room to spare and had a great view towards Ashton. The room was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the en-suite shower room was large and modern. However… the stairs to the attic bedrooms were fearsome: incredibly steep and very narrow. Taking luggage larger than an aircraft cabin case up those stairs is a serious undertaking. We chose not to attempt to change rooms, everything else was fine, and so I would not wish to slate the hotel for this. I’m sure another room could have been found if we found that we were having difficulties. We had a good cooked breakfast the two days we were there, in pleasant surroundings, provide by friendly cheerful staff. Barton Villa, in the main, is a beautifully restored Victorian villa that appears to be well cared for. A mention must be made regarding the resident’s lounge which is incredibly comfortable and the large car park. It is about a twenty minute walk up the hill to Ashton-under-Lyne where there are shops, a market hall and transport links. Ultimately if you’re visiting the area Barton Villa is an excellent place to stay: and good value too!
