      A real find.

      Almost on the Tarmac but you could be in the country.

      Excellent staff, large room.

      Not your typical airport hotel

      from

      I was quite taken aback at the exterior of the hotel, considering its proximity to the airport. It has the look of a charming country mansion. However, in comparison the rooms were a bit of a disappointment to be honest (I've stayed there twice now). Quite small and the bathroom could have been better, and as a few other reviewers have commented, extremely stuffy (I had to sleep with the window open but then I was freezing, as the bedclothes weren't really up to the job).

      I found the staff on the whole efficient and welcoming, which was a pleasant surprise having phoned up to ask where I should wait for the hotel shuttle and being met with a very sullen "the airport"! However, early morning checkout was protracted and nearly made me late for my plane. I had to go through the rigmarole of explaining to yet another member of staff that I needed 2 separate receipts, which he argued with then took ages actually doing, despite having arranged it all at the time of booking and even having it written in black and white on my booking confirmation, and despite assurances the night before that a note had been made of my particular billing requirements and that everything would be ready for me.

      I know I ate there (the bar, rather than the restaurant) but can't remember the food at all, which means it was neither very good nor very bad. Breakfast was fine as well - a good choice of cooked or buffet-style. A word of advice though - don't be tempted by the tea/coffee and biscuits at the bar. We had to practically beg for the biscuits (which turned out to be HobNobs), and my coffee was indescribably bad. You're much better off sticking with the plentiful & good quality tea & biscuits provided in your room.

      Only a couple of minutes' drive from the airport too - phone ahead to arrange for the shuttle to pick you up. If you need to get to/from the airport outside shuttle hours, the hotel will provide you with a taxi free of charge.

      Just the Ticket

      from

      I have stayed several times now and have never been disapointed. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff helpful, the building quaint, and the beer cold.

      The rooms are quite small but very cosy with comfortable beds. Very close to the Airport, which is ideal for early-morning flights.

      I will stay again.

      Dirty, dirty, dirty

      from

      We stayed at this hotel in Dec 2004 before flying out to Portugal. The room was disgustingly dirty. The bathroom had mold on the shower, the floor by the toilet, and on the window. The bed was terribly uncomfortable with two flimsy pillows. We chose this hotel because of its close proximity to the airport and parking was included with the room, but it was not worth it.

      Ideal stop-over!

      from

      The Etrop Grange is a lovely, quaint hotel. We stayed for one night before an early morning flight with another couple.

      The staff were very efficient. We did not have a meal at the restaurant but enjoyed a couple of drinks at the bar!

      Our rooms, although small (but huge compared with New York) were very comfortable. It is like staying in a country house. I would definitely recommend this hotel especially in winter as it has a nice 'cosy' feel.

      Beware of wedding receptions

      from

      we arrived on Friday night for a two night stay, nice looking hotel but so busy inside we could not even get to the bar or even find a seat to relax we were due to meet freinds in the lounge for an evening of chatting eating and drinking but due to the 100+ wedding guests we were forced out of the hotel to relax. And guess what the same thing happened on the Saturday night. The room was okay but very hot our freinds room was small dirty and did not get cleaned over the weekend.

      The breakfast was so expensive at 14.95 and you even had to queue to get it as if you were at school.

      The hotel is to small to look after wedding parties and residential guests. In the end we discussed our thoughts with the manager who refunded us half of our bill but should you be put in this situation in the first place

      Okay hotel if you only want to stay before or after flying but dont expect much from this so called 4* hotel

      Not bad, but....

      from

      Rooms small and stuffy, so you can either open the window and get ventilation and aircraft noise, or stifle. Don't stay there in the summer! Would be reasonable value at half the price - but it is an airport hotel. Cheerful staff, clean and not as tired as some. OK for a night.

      Best hotel ive ever been to

      from

      the hotel was brilliant, we had to phone to get a lift from the Jaguar but we got there about 8 a clock at night, so take the phone number of the hotel just in case its not there.

      The room was lovely, very clean, we where comtemplating on knicking the bed! (for an idea height wise, im 5ft 3 and it came waist level up to me) you get plenty of free tea and coffee (kenko instant really smooth/and kenko decaff, and twinnings tea bags, so you have an idea) not just the usuall 2 wee bags of tea, the room was spotless - we did have a wee problem cause someone had knicked one of the batteries out of the remote, but the staff delt with it quickly and efficently.

      another person we were comtemplating stealling was the chef who made us the pasta, this was the best pasta ive had in my life!

      we are actually just back from there today, and soon as our next paychecks are in we are planning our next trip to etrop grange, the photos dont do it justice, you have to see it by yourself

      Not the hotel for us!!

      from

      The hotel room was very small and noisy as we were above the kitchen.

      Although the staff did move us to another room, this was also small and very dusty! The staff were not very helpful, we paid for 2 weeks parking at the hotel while we were on holiday, and on return they had lost our car keys which did eventually show up..... Overall we have stayed at far better hotels for the same price.

      Little England

      from

      Stayed at the Etrop Grange prior to an early morning departure on holiday. Easy and friendly check-in, together with a very snug and cosy room made this a very good choice of Hotel. Attentive staff both for meals and drinks made staying a real pleasure - the holiday had really started a day early! Nice to travel to the airport in style via the Hotels Jaguar - the chauffeur was very helpful and on time. On return we had to share the car with another traveller, but there were no problems at all.

      A superb Hotel - well worth the visit and with terrific service from the staff. My only criticism? The bed had the 'lived-in' 'V' in the mattress - somewhat uncomfortable - but I forgive them, as everything else was superb.

      Will certainly go again.

I finally arrived at my new home.  I'm staying in this awesome, brick front, 2 story home - 2 bedroom, 1.5 ba...super homey.  I took the day to unpack and walk around town a bit to grab some essentials. Check out the pictures and until next time! Cheers, ...

So yeah, let's go be tourists!) was only five miles away. Dunham Massey, a couple of hundred year old house that was used during WWI as an auxiliary hospital (kinda like the first season of Downton Abbey). I suppose we weren't thinking about taking pictures ...
