“what a gem !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2010

It was like stepping back in time, full of character, charming hotel. Comfortable bed. My rooms was really well appointed and because I was fortunate enough to book on their own website, I received a FREE upgrade to my room. Which even at the higher price if I had paid it was well worth the money. The breakfast menu was extensive and freshly cooked and served at the table (no queing for anything). The only thing which surprised me was that it was not five stars, which it richly desereved.

Don't expect any understanding from the Asgrott if you need to alter or cancel your booking! We'd arranged to stay at the hotel and go to the John Mayer concert at the MEN Arena, but it was cancelled. When we phoned to discuss options the staff made it obvious they didn't care and just wanted our money. Best to find a hotel that provides some customer service.

We are sorry this guest was unhappy about the cancellation policy but he booked his room
through another website whos cancellation policy was a short one due to it being a budget
booking , it is all ways better to book direct .
Finally being rude and abusive to us does not help,he should take the matter up with the company he booked with.

Just returned from staying 3 nights here - lovely. From my initial booking enquiry, to our time of departure, David and Peter were really helpfull and friendly - nothing was too much trouble.
The room was very tastefully decorated and had quite a lot of "finishing touches" which are not always found in larger hotels ie: toiletries, cotton wool, hand lotion and shoe shining kit in the bathroom. A teapot was included on the hospitality tray, and on our arrival there was also an Eccles cake - which was devoured immediately! sadly, it was never replaced! (David was made aware of this, and he promised I could have one for the journey home - this must have slipped his mind 'cos I never got it!) - only joking!
On a more serious note, couldn't fault the hotel. Room was lovely, breakfast was great and the whole place has been refurbished very sympathetically.
The owners, David and Peter are really lovely guys and their dogs are cute too. Last but not least, I must mention Ann - she's a "gem" she works very hard but always has a smile and time for a chat. She even lent me her brollie for the weekend, because it rained heavily on Saturday and looked like it would for the rest of our stay. All in all, we had a fabulous weekend, and we will certainly be back!!

The Ascott suited me and my friend perfectly-- the hotel was lovely with all the little touches that just turns a good room into a great one.
We'd gone for a concert- so it was a taxi ride to get to the MEN.. but that was fine.
The breakfast was great and there were wholesome alternatives so it was a difficult choice.
Thanks, will be back.. what we liked was to enjoy the centre of Manchester (until the wee small hours when you've had enough and want to escape) and then jump in a taxi to get back to The Ascott-- very quiet and a good nights sleep guarenteed.
The weather wasn't great (we are talking Manchester here).. which is a shame as we'd have loved to have sat out in the garden.

I have regularly stayed at The Ascott Hotel for over 6 years now as our office is just around the corner and during this time have always received a warm welcome. I enjoy visiting the hotel which has become quite a home from home. I think I have stayed in most of the rooms , although I am not sure which one Ken Barlow stayed in!! Each room is very individual and a lot of thought has been put into making the rooms unique and different. The cooked breakfast is excellent and great care is always taken to ensure individual preferences are catered for. David, Peter and the team have always been very helpful to myself and my colleagues - advising local restaurants and attractions etc.when we stay and as it is just a short trip into Manchester, the Trafford Centre and Salford Quays - it is a great location to enjoy what is going on locally.

1. I've stayed here quite a few times, excellent value and quality in a pleasant, up-market Manchester suburb. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean; the style is original and different from the impersonal chains of hotels in city centres.
2. Excellent friendly service; the owner will do anything if you ask. Super breakfast but no restaurant however good selection close by and of course Manchester city centre.
3. Location slightly less because for some it is a little way out of the city centre however bus, train or metro into the city (or drive, not recommended) 10 minutes walk away (buses pass door) and parking on site or off-street which I've only had to do occasionally.
