Ivy Mount Guest House
Ranked #1 of 3 Eccles B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I stayed here during a business trip. My room was by the front door facing the main road. The room itself was very, very tired. The wallpaper was peeling and there were holes in the wall, the mattress springs were poking through and the duvet was stained. The ensuite bathroom was clean but the toilet roll holder was hanging off the wall. There is a hideously massive TV on the wall; the money would've been better spent on decorating the room to a more welcoming and acceptable standard. Luckily the room was surprisingly quiet as the main road is not used heavily at night. However this room is above the kitchen and it really smells once the fryer for breakfast gets going. There is also the noise of the front door to contend with. Breakfast is fine, nothing special, and you make your own tea and coffee from an urn; reminding me of a greasy spoon. Paul is kind and pleasant, qualities which I would say prompt most of the good reviews, but the overall standard doesn't compare favourably to other similar 3 star B&Bs I've stayed in.

A very pleasant guest house, affordable, extremely clean and well looked after. The parking is quite limited, but there was plenty of space on the roadside if the car park is already full.

It was really helpful to have a dvd player in the room too, which I didn't know about before (I had a training dvd to watch for the course I was attending).

The owner, Paul, seemed lovely even though I only met him briefly. Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: There is a road at the front, so request a back room if traffic noise will bother you. All the rooms...

Stayed here for one night whilst on a course at the hospital nearby. Very handy location for that purpose and lovely clean rooms. Best bit is Paul the owner... really friendly and makes you feel like you've been a friend of his forever!! Thanks Paul and so sorry it took me so long to write this review!! Will definitely recommend and would certainly stay again if I was in the area.

Booked a double room with shared bathroom - on arrival was upgraded to ensuite, simply because they had one available. Lovely room - immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Very comfortable bed, really helpful welcome binder giving me wifi code and listing available facilities. Mentioned a hairdryer I hadn't seen - found it in a drawer - lovely surprise. Mentioned tea and coffee making facilities and an ironing board - found them tucked away in the wardrobe so that when you walk in the room you get the full effect of it's charm and elegance, but then you find all these extras tucked away - loved it! Lovely big TV mounted on the wall. Quiet location - easy to park. Owners were so friendly and helpful. I had a lovely nights sleep (unusual for me, particularly when away from home) and generally a really enjoyable stay. I wish I'd been staying longer - highly recommended!

My wife and I arrived early to Manchester and were exhausted from our flight. Paul and his team were extremely accommodating and allowed us to check in a little early, letting us get some much needed rest. He recommended a cab and was helpful in every way possible. We stayed in the double en-suite room 10 which was very clean and welcoming. Paul was very friendly and genuinely interested in our visit and it was like seeing an old friend. Should we be back in Manchester we will definitely stay at the Ivy Mount again!
