The Bulls Head & Lodge
Ranked #2 of 7 Altrincham B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Today is my last night at Bulls Head here in Hale Barns and it has been very memorable experience. I have been here for over 8 days now. The staff is extremely polite and helpful. The restaurant staff is also equally helpful and would even cater to your specific needs that are not in the menu card. For eg., for some strange reason, I was on a salad diet for the supper and there you go each night I have been getting a plate full of salad and a bowl full of fruits, that is not shown in the menu card. The breakfast, though charged separately is not very lavish but caters to your specific needs and a special mention there for John, who has always been smilingly catering to the customers each morning.

In all a memorable experience and I strongly recommend to all. The only negative point is the sound each room door makes while shutting and if you are not a sound sleeper, that can wake you up in the middle of the night. The rooms are comfortable with a tea cattle and other usual stuff.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor overlooking a lawn.

Needed a hotel on a night that Manchester United were playing at home, left it late. Tried the Crest at Altrincham they quoted £87 for a twin room not including breakfast normal rate is £63, staff not interested. Called the Bull they had a room and were most helpful the room was £55.00, clean comfortable with everything you need. Staff really helpful

Had an early morning flight and needed somewhere to stay the night and to leave the car. Came across the Bulls Head and read the reviews, this is so convenient, lovely room, clean and warm and quiet, also ate a substantial meal in the pub itself, manager booked a taxi for us which was Trafford taxis, £6 to the airport. We will certainly use the Bulls Head in the future.

We only stayed for one night (Saturday) but will happily be staying again. Room was bright and clean. Shower (over bath) was really strong and blasted any grime away, lovely, plenty of hot water and easy to use. Bed was large and comfortable with no roll together.

Dined in the pub next door and the food was excellent.

The gentleman on reception was very helpful and friendly. From our experience we would highly recommend both the Bulls Head and the Lodge.

Arrived on a Friday to visit my brother and family to stay till Sunday as my brother had no room to put us up, so went on Google search and found the Bull`s Head in Hale Barns, only about a mile from the M56 and Manchester Airport. We were given a friendly reception in the Lodge by Dennis the owner/manager.who checked us in quickly.We asked for a twin ensuite on the ground floor and that is what we got. The room was big and very clean indeed and had tea & coffee making facilities, a modern freeview tv on a large desk with drawers underneath and a hanging robe for coats and dresses/suits.The room also had a table, a rocking chair and an ordinary chair. The wall heater which was we could control ourselves kept us warm.The beds were very comfortable and with adequate bedding giving us a good night`s sleep. The room also came equipped with a trouser press, and a hair dryer in one of the drawers. The ensuite bathroom was well equipped with 3 towels each and 2 bath mats, and the bathroom also had soap dispensers at the wash basin and also over the bath and tissues were also provided.
We had breakfast both mornings in the Bulls Head pub just next door. There was a huge choice of food, too much to mention individually plus a full English breakfast. We really did have a very comfortable weekend here and as the title suggests, we will be back! Gwen & Pat Oneill

My parents live in Hale Barns and my dad booked me in here to stay with my partner for 3 days over the Christmas holiday. The Lodge itself looks like a motel and there is ample car parking. Inside we were greeted by a friendly lady who checked us in and gave us information about the room. The room itself was a double; it was spacious, very clean and had lots of useful amenities such as Freeview TV, a large desk, plus a kettle with tea and coffee. The bathroom was very large, clean and we were provided with lots of fresh towels. The shower gave hot water almost instantly and was powerful. The bed was extremely comfortable with soft duvets.
We did not eat at the pub next door as we were eating at my parents' but the pub serves food all day and can also provide a full English breakfast for £7.95.
Overall I thought this was place was very good value for money, the staff were friendly and everything was clean and worked.

Like many other reviewers, we stayed here before a morning flight from Manchester Airport.

The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Booking in and out was quick and easy.

The pub next door serves very good food and the portions are quite generous.

Overall an excellent place to stay when using the airport.
