We needed a retreat for the late afternoon of a full day family wedding. Somewhere to just chill out for a couple of hours before the evening do and also somewhere to rid myself of my of my Alexei Sayle style suit. I'm sure it used to be baggier.
The Wycliffe proved excellent in both location and comfort. The whole place is nicer than I expected considering the location. Not that Edgeley is particularly bad but it isn't one of the more picturesque areas of Stockport.
Check in was straight forward but, unusually, we had to pay on arrival as opposed to on departure as is more usual. This was unimportant really and I only mention it for completeness. There were two couples in our party and we were allocated rooms 9 and 10, adjacent to each other on the first floor. I didn't see a lift so I'm guessing there isn't one, I may be wrong.
On entering the room I was surprised by the fairly large size and also the apparent newness of all the furnishings. The decor was the expected neutral colour and every thing looked clean and in working order. There are additional pillows in the wardrobe if the one each on the bed isn't enough. The quilt is at least 13 tog and I was really hot during the night. However, if you have the window open the aircraft noise is worse obviously. The bathroom is large and well appointed with a fairly decent sized shower cubicle. There is no bath. The pedestal is situated between the shower cubicle and the wall but even for me there was ample room to sit comfortably. Toilet roll was of good quality and the limited toiletries supplied were OK. Back in the bedroom, it was initially cold before we turned up the radiator. It did not seem to be on all the time and may be on a timer. Again I could be wrong about this. The brew facilities are good with ample supplies of everything and good quality biscuits. All in all everything was OK. The bar service was fast enough even though the hotel was fairly busy with it being Valentine's Day. Prices were probably what you'd expect for a hotel of this quality. A medium Pinot and a pint of San Miguel was £8-50.
Breakfast was great with everything seemingly freshly prepared including black pudding as standard, always a plus in my book. There is fresh fruit, cereal, fruit juice, toast etc available in a small buffet area and cooked food is ordered seperately.
I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to anyone visiting Stockport.
