Absolutely brilliant experience. We booked online last minute and the host came through within minutes to arrange all our details for a check in within the hour. The customer service on location was on point, with a personal walk through of the house as well as fresh milk in the fridge and a variety ...
Nice welcome and polite, the bed wasn’t the best I could feel the springs. Breakfast was nice. Well worth the price considering all that.
Staff were incredibly helpful when I had issues with my booking and also helping me retrieve my iPad which I had left in the room after checking out. Many thanks to the team!
Basic but decent enough. No real issues. Nice friendly staff. Very good for the price but don't expect luxury.
Manchester has a reputation for being a gritty northern city, and it's true that this was once a powerhouse of the Industrial Revolution and still has a thriving textile manufacturing industry. But Manchester is also a highly cultured metropolis, and when you stay at a Manchester hotel you'll have a world of museums, galleries and fascinating industrial heritage to explore. There are also sports stadiums and many green open spaces, such as Buile Hill Park, the biggest and most popular in Manchester. When you've had enough of shopping and sightseeing, come here to take the weight off for a couple of hours and enjoy the sunshine.
Buile Hill Park has an interesting history, and links with some notable figures from the Manchester area. LS Lowry used to regularly come here before achieving fame with his paintings. Frances Hodgson-Burnett, author of 'The Secret Garden', supposedly wrote her famous children's book while visiting Buile Hill Mansion, a Grade II listed building. This is one of the Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest on the English Heritage Register, and it's a lovely place to come when you're out for the day from your Manchester hotel in the more hectic heart of the city. The park has outdoor gym equipment and tennis courts, and a children's play area. Bring a picnic along for a family day out, and enjoy refreshments in one of the designated picnic areas.
Buile Hill Park has been completely transformed since it was used as a military base during both world wars. After the second of these conflicts it was reopened in 1948 and various additions made thereafter. A garden for the blind and a Pet Corner were two of these, and visitors today can enjoy a wonderful sense of calm and wellbeing here, away from the shops and offices. Wherever your Manchester hotel or guesthouse may be, you can easily get along to Buile Park for rest and recuperation, or to enjoy lunch outdoors. All great cities need big parks, and Manchester's is one of the best.
