This hotel is home from home, Good food , good friendly atmophere, helpful and friendly staff, and whenever business colleages stay over they insist they stay at the Broadoak Hotel, a country pub in the heart of town.
The bedrooms are all individual and and very tastefully decorated in a traditional style the ideal place for that homely stop over.

A genuine welcome at the door, making you feel good at the onset. The rooms, all of which are en suite, are of top quality with all room services you could wish for. All the meals taken at the Hotel were excellent and the dinner menu very extensive. The hotel is obviously a popular place for the local people and the number of people having dinner give proof to the quality of the service provided.

We had our wedding reception at the broadoak hotel on the 25th september 2009. The staff there were very helpful from planning the reception to the service we recieved on the day. They took the time to make sure all the guests were happy and treated us like we were royalty. The attention they made to our wedding was fantastic especially by Micheal Frith nothing was to much trouble at all he even came and saw us having our pictures takin in the park which im sure is above and beyond his job!. The food was superb every member of the weddin party commented and will now go to the broadoak hotel for a meal, it was really good value for money . All we can say is that our wedding reception couldnt of been any better. Thank you very much and we will be comin back.

We stayed only overnight for a function in the area. What we got was a friendly happy welcome, a lovely room, excellent room and superb food. This place really does go out of the way to make you feel welcome and the biggest bonus is that it is spotlessly clean!
A full clean bill of health here!

My partner and I stayed at the Broadoak as it was local to a school renunion I attended.
We stayed 2x nights, arriving on the friday and leaving sunday morning. The room was of very high standard and much better than the usual pup type rooms.

Friday evening we dined in the Al A Carte restaurant and found the food absolutely fabulous. There was lots of choice and both of us thouroughly enjoyed our meal which was very reasonably priced. We then ventured into the bar for a nightcap and got chatting to a few of the locals which made us feel very welcome.

Saturday we enjoyed a full English Breakfast and then hopped on the train (10 mins walk) and headed into Manchester for some shopping.

Saturday evening we ordered a room service snack before we ventured to our renunion.

A thouroughly enjoyable stay, friendly staff and great service, and I would recommend to anyone staying in that area.

A large group of us booked Christmas dinner at the Broadoak. It cost £55 each and the food & service were extremely poor to say the least.
They had run out of vegetables, we had 4 sprouts between 13 on our table. The turkey was processed not fresh.
We had to keep going into the kitchen as some of the party hadn't been served & the staff were sat in the kitchen.
We did complain but no one was interested.
I would advise anyone to think hard before booking a Christmas meal here.

The Broadoak is an imposing red brick urban pub in a residential part of the town. Ashton under Lyne isn’t everybody’s favourite holiday destination but if you are staying there The Broadoak will serve you handsomely.

We stayed here on a Saturday night to be used as a base for a night out in Manchester. At £75 for the two of us, this was an economic alternative to the city centre and it doesn't take that long to get there.

The pub is a large substantial building with a big bar, restaurant and plenty of parking. Everything inside is similarly ample – furniture, timber beams, bar, solid doors etc. The Broadoak is not going to fall down any time soon.

Our room was equally generous. The large double bed didn’t seem to fill the room at all, there was plenty of space to spread out and make yourself at home with more furniture than you would normally expect (I don’t suppose there were the same penny pinching constraints on the design and construction of this place when it was built as there seems to be nowadays in the hotel business). The bedroom and bathroom were both spotlessly clean.

The abundance of space though, meant that the small TV high up on the wall wasn’t that easy to watch. A small fault but the only one I can think of.

We didn’t have much opportunity to meet the staff. On arrival we checked in at the bar where, because the girl was on her own, we had to find our own way to the room. I’m pretty grown up now though and I don’t find it much of a chore navigating round a strange building. We did have a drink at the bar later and found it has a friendly atmosphere and some good beer.

Breakfast was excellent. We didn’t feel like exploring the kitchens repertoire so just asked for a “full English”. We got what we needed and it was fresh, properly cooked and came along quite quickly.

All in all, staying here was a pleasant experience. It’s a pub don’t forget, so you don’t get porters or receptionists on work experience, you get friendly, engaging staff and clientele who live, work and socialise here – adding to the whole experience.
