Innkeeper's Lodge Alderley Edge
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Stayed for one night on business - room was clean and adequate, it was quite small but fine for one night. There was a very pleasant bar area with log fire and the manager was extremely friendly. We did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment on the restaurant. I would say that we paid full price as on business you are never sure if plans alter at the last minute. However the full price only included continental breakfast and cooked was an additional charge.
I would certainly stay again if on business.

My family and I recently stayed for two nights whilst house hunting as we are relocating to the area. The bar and restaurant were excellent and the service was exceptional. We ran out of toothpaste so Adrian literally went to the shops for us. Fantastic! We will absolutely be recommending our friends and family to stay here when they visit us. Thank you.

Very comfortable hotel, well decorated, spacious and well stocked room and bathroom had nice toiletries. Only stayed one night whilst meeting colleagues for a Christmas meal but will stay again when in business. Nice breakfast, good service.

Room Tip: Room 1 a little noisy from the smokers outside of pub below.

Very friendly staff. The rooms are very nice and large. Food in the restaurant was excellent. The Staff does care about the customers. Thank you Adrian for giving us a lift in the evening. I will return for the next business trip.

Delightful meals at the restaurant, although the ambient music can be quite loud in the evenings. Overnight accommodation was agreeably up-to-date but frankly dank (slightly smelly bathroom, clammy sheets) on a dark autumn night...and yes, there is the problem of noise from downstairs, although I found it less distracting than some other reviewers. (Always take earplugs when staying over a restaurant or pub.) The real standout, here, though, is the service, which was among the friendliest and most attentive I have enjoyed lately. I will return whenever I am in the vicinity, especially to the restaurant for lunch.

Trip advisor review:

I needed to find accommodation near Alderley Edge for 3 nights for business and The Merlin was recommended to me. I also stayed for another 3 nights the following week.
• Staff are very friendly and helpful.
• Pub atmosphere is lovely, especially when by yourself. Very cosy and good for people watching.
• Pub food is good but a reduced menu might work better – there was almost too much choice.
• A cold breakfast is included (hot breakfast at extra cost).
• 10-15 minute walk into Alderley Edge (a cab was only £3) where there are great restaurants and bars (Bubble Room, Alderley Bar & Grill, Gusto, The Botanist)
• Stayed in Room 4 first week then Room 6 for second week. These are rooms at the front so there is some road noise and possibly bar noise too but I wasn’t bothered too much. I preferred Room 6 because it had a bigger bathroom and a shower, whereas Room 4 had a shower in a bath. Feather pillow and duvet – very comfy bed, but not so much during week 2 – I think the duvet wasn’t feather. Rooms are spacious and decorated with a contemporary feel but there were a few small things that could have been improved: cold water tap in Room 6 needs fixing; many wires / cables visible which could be tidied away.

Overall the stay was very nice and I would choose to come back here. My other colleagues have stayed in the ‘posh’ Alderley Edge Hotel (tiny rooms) and the Wilmslow Premier Inn. They agree this is much nicer.

Today it offers 10 comfy, modern rooms and a cosy pub and restaurant, where you can savour fresh, seasonal food in the warmth of a crackling open fire.Alderley Edge may boast the highest number of millionaires per square mile in the country, but there's much more to this pretty village than star watching.
