Just 20 minutes' outside of Manchester, Village Hotel Manchester Hyde, offers modern accommodations, on-site entertainment and free WiFi throughout. Starting with the staff...Megan on reception, Cheryl & Sandra & Gabriel in the restaurant were all very pleasant and could not do enough for us. Room was very clean, food in restaurant was exceptional, as was the red wine which was chilled for us. Parking easy and plenty of room After leaving our previous hotel (Bredbury Hall), due to that one being dirty and no fit for human beings to reside there this was just what we needed. We are coming back to the area in October this year for a two night stay, and have already booked to stay here again
My biggest problem was that there was no coffee available in the am until 9am on a saturday. And you have to buy a full breakfast of £10 to get a cup of coffee! I’ve travelled a lot over 30 years and I’ve never come across a hotel which only serves coffee as part of breakfast. Can I suggest that when Starbucks is closed that a hot thermos of coffee is available in reception as they do in so many hotels across the states. Tea is easier to make in the room but so many travellers these days don’t drink instant coffee.
I stayed on two separate occasions within a 10 day period. The first stay was good, nice clean room, wi-fi okay, basic but pleasant enough. There were no instructions to call room service or the desk. Nothing about how to work the tv or if you could get other channels. Breakfast was fine, if a bit boring. My second stay was in a different room... dirty sink, t roll holder hanging off the wall, a chair that was much too big for the room and left no space for a bedside table, no full length mirror and a dirty cup. Not the best stay. Breakfast was the same every day, no vegan options and bland...and no biscuits or mini-bar. Staff were very pleasant.
The hotel vibe was relaxing. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location was good depending on your purpose, it is 10mins by car from Tameside hospital. However, the hotel has a lot of facilities (gym, spa), except the important ones: fridge in room, closet, air conditioning for summer. - Overall the room looked clean except when I opened the toilet cover and found a spot of urine on the seat. When I removed the blanket off the bed, the bedsheet had a hair and some debris pieces here and there.
Hyde like many other market towns of Greater Manchester suffers from lack of investment in it's environment and green spaces. Local services have taken a hit due to government spending plans and council's lack of care. The roads are too busy, public transport is lacking and the town centre is dying. The surrounding countryside, which is beautiful is under constant threat of development and crime seems to be on the rise. Litter is abundant and the sense of community pride though present isn't obvious. It has two good restaurants - Pagliaccis' in the centre and The Joshua Bradley on the outskirts. Some good pubs and even a micro-brewery. No cinema, theatre under threat of closure. Library demoted to one small room in an impressive town hall building, while the old library building has been abandoned. Three or four supermarkets vie for supremacy. Most other retail outlets have deserted the town for the better looked-after Ashton-Under-Lyne or Stockport.
DOWNSIDE ; 2 single pushed together doesn't constitute a double. No mini bar available. Poor coffee/tea selection. Noises from banging doors all night. No contact details for managerial staff. Furniture old & in need of replacement considering the room prices. £10 for the breakfast, no choice. Restaurant very very expensive although good quality. UPSIDE ; Staff are absolutely brilliant. Facilities exceptional.
A rather dilapidated town, that has sunk from its former glory as quite an industrial centre dating back several centuries. The town centre shops are rather run down, mainly take-aways not many hotels in area.
