Get off to a poor start and it will always be a struggle to recover. Myself and two other colleagues stayed here the other night on a business trip. At check in (about 6pm) we were greeted by a receptionist who barely looked up at us, couldn't be bothered to stand up and might as well thrown the keys at us. I thought maybe its just me but my other two colleagues were equally astonished at her total "surly teenager" ambivalence.
As I went up the warren of stairs I couldn't help but notice that all the carpets were very threadbare and poorly hoovered. When I reached my room it was tired at best and really needed a lick of fresh paint, hoover and refitted. I immediately asked for a better and bigger room and to be fair it was given to me. The evening meal was pretty average although the wine. list quite good and fair. Breakfast was fine. Really can't enthuse about the whole expereince.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Etrop Grange is a gracious Grade II listed Georgian Country House originally built in 1780 by school teacher William Moss and although located just a short distance from Manchester Airport, is anything but an airport hotel.Originally known as Moss House, the hotel was renamed Etrop Grange in 1984 by the owners after a local area called Etrop Green. Etrop Grange first opened for business in November 1985 as a fine dining restaurant on just the lower level and was slowly converted into a hotel over the next 13 years with a £3 million refurbishment. The Etrop Grange still retains it's Georgian charm with its stately facade matched by a luxurious interior of decadent chandeliers, heavy drapes and marble fireplaces.Due to modern intervention the hotel is now ideally located just two minutes from Manchester Airport and the M56, and is one of the few hotels in the area with no overhead aircraft noise making it an ideal hotel for business and leisure alike. Offering complimentary transfers to and from the airport and airport railway station (between 06:00 and 22:00), along with complimentary parking and WiFi for all guests, Etrop Grange is the perfect place to spend a relaxing day or night whatever the occasion. ... more less
