Historical Traveler Reviews Eleven Didsbury Park Manchester
Individual, stylish and friendly
I booked this hotel on laterooms and wasn't sure what to expect. I had booked a suite as it was a special occasion. The hotel is lovely. The public areas are comfy and welcoming but also very modern and funky. Our suite had a great walk in shower, a large roll top bath in the bedroom and all the usuals that you would expect. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is wonderful, I had the eggs benedict and my husband had the full irish. That plus the pastries, fruit and homemade smoothies meant that we didn't eat anything else all day. Didsbury is a lovely village and we pottered around all day on Saturday and didn't actually make it into Manchester city centre. When we did go in the evening(by cab) it took about 15 minutes and cost about £12.50. It was only £12 to get back after midnight. We have come back feeling relaxed and pampered and we will definitely be back. We had only 2 tiny gripes there are no bathrobes provided and the coffee in the room is only instant sachets. Somehow this didn't match the level of everything else which really was superb.
Heaven @ Eleven!
We stayed at Eleven Didsbury Park last Friday and had a really nice time... We booked on Laterooms.com about an hour before we set off that evening. When we got there we were met by a great girl who checked us in. We decided to have a few drinks before going to our room in the lounge. It was a warm night, so we moved out to the terrace which was at the tip of a fantastic English garden. Sitting there sipping G&T's, watching the sun set was absolute bliss. Around 7am we went to our room where all the lamps were lit and classical music was playing. There was a bath in the coner of the bedroom on legs and a little livingroom at the back. We slept well and had a great breakfast in the morning. For the money, this was an excellent hotel. From now on we will be staying in privatley owned townhouses - They care more!
Not worth the money!
I stay in 4/5 star hotels all the time this has to be one of the worst ! I'll tell you how it is if your happy with this then go if your like me go to an established Hilton,Radisson,Thistle etc.
*Poor standard of finish on decor ( my dad could do better!)
*Smell in bathroom (Damp shower curtain)
*Stains on the carpet
*Rooms no aircon so really stuffy at night
*They have a cat roaming inside the hotel
*Cheap looking furniture
*If your car is bigger than a mini you will struggle to park
*Management are poor and if you complain there is ashrug of the shoulder attitude.
For the money stay elsewhere if there are problems they will sort it out or at least there will be a customer service department to look into it for you.
Eleven didsbury parks attitude is "we've got your money now like it or lump it"
i lead a busy business life in manchester,a daily commute is out of the question,which is why this hotel is the ideal place for a young business man to relax after a hard days work,you forget where you are and can unwind with the surperb assistance of its staff,top notch 5 stars,home from home,bravo didsbury.
Manchester's little secret
I stayed at Eleven Didsbury Park with a collegue as every other hotel in Manchester was full. Before we arrived at the hotel, we didn't know a thing about the place and were in for quite a surprise. The hotel small and quaint with a beautiful garden and cosy lounges. The bedrooms were lovely, with huge beds and gorgeous furniture. So much effort has gone into every little detail with this hotel it is hard to fing any faults. I think we only saw about 3 members of staff during our stay but they were so friendly it made this hotel a real home from home. There is no doubt that if we're back in Manchester we will definately be back at Eleven Didsbury. Or perhaps their other hotel Didsbury House which looks just as lovely!
After reading the reviews given about this hotel i was looking forward to going away to Eleven Didsbury. When i arravied i got a taste of the accommodating staff which let us have the room early, but that was about the only impressive factor about the place.
The trouble stated when we were taken to our room it was very small and for a deluxe but at the time never thought anything of it after all a hotel that everyone raves about would not charge for a deluxe room and then place its guests in a standard room, would they?
Anyway on entering into the room we were faced with a room that was colder than the mancester weather outside. On reporting this to reception a member of staff came in to the room letting us know how to turn the heating on with no avail. Left in a cold room in novermber was no joke. No one thought to give us a tempoary heater. later on in the evening when most people would be settled in their room we are asked if we would not mind a handy man to come in the room and sort the problem out. This was no problem for us, as we thought that at least this would sort the problem out. Even though our first night was ruined we would have three other nights to enjoy.
Enters a man that was very pleasant (one thing i have to say their staff are friendly) after about 20 mins of messing around he is left baffled and then about another 20 mins later eneter 3 other men trying to sort the problem out (one of them being the manger.) coming and going, in out of the room it was not the first relaxing night i had imagined.
Three men and myself and a friend in a very small room was one of the most Uncomfortable experiences that i have had in a four star hotel. The problem was still not sorted out so we where moved to another room (which we were greatful for). Only to be faced with another problem which was that every time somone went to use a toilet in the corridoor a horriable, discusting sewage smell would enter in to our room. We asked the staff to enter into the room to show them that we were not complaining just for the sake of complaining, but the smell was so bad that the staff refused to enter into the room.
We were moved for the third time to a even smaller room i didnt have any room to walk around the bed never mind have a relaxing evening.
After this nothing major happened no attempt was really made to make up for a wasted evening that had cost us £114. We asked for our first room back just because we had a littel more space, the heating still didnt. An expert was called the next evening which ment another wasted evening but we thought at least the room would be warm, the electrician said the work would take about an hour, so we waited down staires an hour changed into a couple of hours so i went to reception to ask about the work had it finished she turned around and said it finished out half an hour after we came down staires. No could be bothered to tell us the work had been done. looking forward to a heated room we were faced with a radiator that didnt work unable to complain nor longer, we asked for electrical heater and made do with that.
We made the best of the four days that we had been looking forward to for months. On leaving the hotel one last blow was yet to come when going down to the second floor the cleaners were clearing out the rooms as we went passed we saw how big these rooms were (also what the reviews had been talking about , the reason why i had wanted to stay in this hotel in the first place.). The room that we had paid for was not actually given to us but we were charged the price. The most dsopointing thing was been lied to and been charged for something that we did not recieve.
The whole experience has left me feel cheated i can not think why a reputable hotel would treat a Guest in such a way, maybe because we were Asian and they thought we dont know any better.
although this review looks like somthing out of a comdy film it was no joke I dont like to be cheated but that exactly what happened when you stay in Eleven Didsbury hotel Manchester.
A sweet small hotel in a beautiful location
Stayed for 4 nights at 11 Didsbury - loved the location, bathroom was wonderful, bed a little small in the deluxe room. Outdoor garden and patio was comfortable and enjoyable.
My major complaint was the construction going on outside my bedroom door. The desk was not able to provide me with a simple map of the area or a map of the public transportation, which was a problem for me. Also, breakfast was not inluded in the room rate.
The biggest bed ever!!!
We stayed one night here and were very impressed. The rooms were clean, big and had great furnishings. The bathroom was great with plenty of useful toilettries. The breakfast was lovely. Staff friendly and helpful. The whole place had a great feel. Would definitely stay here again.
Were originally booked into Le Meridien Palace, decided to move here after dreadful service there. Maybe a smal hotel, but immaculate rooms, good helpful service. Nice big beds, tasteful simple decor. Have stayed here several times since original visit, still good.
Lives up to the hype
I found a weblink to the hotel while searching for a hotel in the Didsbury area. Only afterwards did I hear back from other Manc friends who had heard a lot about it.The owners have gone out of their way to make 11DP stand out from the crowd, and it's certainly eye-catching, in a tastefully-modern way, taking a lead from the Malmaison chain.There's a laid-back feel to the place, with an open-plan reception area, and a door through to the back garden, which includes seating, croquet and a golf practise net.Each room has its own entertainment system, including a CD player, and there is a free CD library (equally tastefully modern :) at reception.Breakfast was top drawer - comparable with 5-star hotel stays I've blagged.My only black mark was that there are no non-smoking rooms. You can never get rid of that pong!
