"Great short stay"

yram, Warwick, United Kingdom 19/05/2022

Booked here for parka and stay when going to Italy. Room only as leaving 3.00am. Parking worked well. Room not ready but left overnight bags with Reception while we did bag drop at airport via taxi - quite expensive for a 10 min ride; black cab. More expensive coming back airport to hotel so if repeating would re-order company used by hotel. Park and stay price includes taxi to airport on day of departure and then ring taxi company to collect on return with no further charge. Writing while we are away so haven't finished our experience yet but everything went like clockwork so far and staff were very helpful.

"Very close to airport with EV charging "

User 05/05/2022

Excellent hotel, very close to Manchester airport about a 5 minute drive away. Clean comfortable rooms and has EV charging which was a godsend after a long drive down to Manchester. I recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again when using Manchester Airport.

Dear Claire S Thanks so much for the wonderful review! Delighted you enjoyed your stay with us, I do hope we can welcome you back again soon! Kind Regards Rob Nicholson General Manager

"Perfectly ok hotel unless you want to actually sleep"

MMBF1974, Beaconsfield, United Kingdom 01/05/2022

Spent two nights here, with a child, Friday night arrived v late and hotel quiet, room very pleasant and breakfast perfectly ok. Saturday night was a completely different experience. Two functions happening, zero sound proofing between the function rooms and the bedrooms on the first floor. I imagine it was a little like paying to sleep on the pavement on Canal Street at kicking out time from 10pm to 1am. We could hear every word of every song, every DJ comment, guests screaming and shouting inside and outside our window, and then running up and down corridors slamming doors until the early hours. According to staff they have sound limiters that cut the music off when it reaches the legal limit, proudly told me at 10pm it had already shut off twice, not sure boasting that the DJ was pushing the volume as far as possible over and over was a great response to our question as to whether there was any chance of getting some sleep that night. Also galling that they told us they call guests to warn them in advance, but only if you book direct. Apparently it's too hard to contact guests who book through any other system, although amazingly they managed to contact me three times to offer a paid upgrade and responded within hours to my note that we would be checking in late. We didn't need to leave until 10am, so managed to sleep from 1am to 8am, I feel incredibly sorry for guests who had an early flight on Saturday and had to listen to the incredible noise until 1am before rising early for flights. Advice…. Call before booking, if there are any events happening go somewhere else, if no events at all then a perfectly fine place to stay.

Dear MMBF1974, Thank you for your review following your recent stay with us. We are extremely sorry that you had such a badly disturbed night owing to the events that were taking place in the hotel.

Although we appreciate that you had a poor experience we do hope that you consider staying with us again in the future. Kind Regards Rob Nicholson General Manager

Paul G, Petersfield, England 18/04/2022

We stayed for three nights over a busy Easter weekend, to spend time with our daughter, son-in-law and new grandson, having travelled 220 miles to see them. Great quality breakfast, with excellent service. Our room was perfectly clean and well appointed, but a continuous mechanical droning noise caused disturbance - when we reported this, we were moved without fuss or drama to another room. We enjoyed our stay, despite the move, and would stay again. Thank you to all the lovely people at BWP Wilmslow, especially the chap who moved us at silly o'clock!

Rob Nicholson, General Manager at Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Paul G, Thank you for taking the time to write your review and for the great comments, despite their being a slight issue with your room. I'm glad to see that the team accommodated your change in room with no fuss and were able to show our passion for providing good customer service; especially at silly o'clock!! We do hope that we get the opportunity to welcome you back on a future visit to see your family; oh, congratulations on the new addition also. Kind Regards Rob Nicholson General Manager

NeilSmith3211, Sardinia, Italy 15/04/2022

Best Hotel if you are travelling from Manchester Airport or for a great base from which to explore Manchester and the surrounding area. 5 minutes from the airport and all motorways and the staff, rooms, food and quality cannot be faulted.

Nikki W, Luton, United Kingdom 06/04/2022

I stayed for one night at this hotel and was really impressed by the staff who were, without exception, really helpful and friendly. I had a single room and although the room was quite small, it was spotlessly clean and very well equipped and the bathroom was spacious. Nice breakfast too!

Rob Nicholson, General Manager at Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel on Wilmslow, responded to this review

"60th Birthday Celebration"

User 20/03/2022

We held my husbands 60th birthday meal at The Pinewood, so where do I start? The team were amazing from the arranging of the evening to second we left the following morning. Nothing was too much trouble. The best customer service I have personally experienced in a long time. The food was lovely and all our guests complimented the food. We hired a room, for our party which was dressed perfectly with white linen tablecloths and romantic candles. Our bedroom was spacious and clean and the breakfast was fab with lots of hot and cold choices. I would highly recommend this hotel for its staff, food and accommodation. Thank you again for making our evening go smoothly and enjoyably.

"Good Hotel close to the Airport"

Lawrence T, Jarrow, United Kingdom 15/03/2022

This hotel was very good. Easy to get to, clean and tidy, with good amenities. It was well priced with no additional car parking charges. The menu was limited in choice, but it was very good and not expensive. The only issue was that we had to leave before breakfast started. But to be fair not many hotels start breakfast at 4:30am.

Rob Nicholson, General Manager at Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear BigLoshT Thank you for taking the time to leave your review, I'm glad that you had a good stay with us. We hope you stay with us again, if you do, for early risers we can offer a breakfast to go which may be an option to take up. Kind Regards Rob Nicholson General Manager

willow771, Manchester, United Kingdom 12/03/2022

Groupon bed breakfast and evening meal deal.Well worth the money, lovely staff, great food, plenty of choice and clean modern room. We were given the choice of room up grade which we did and had a balcony executive room, nice added extras of coffee machine, toiletries and dressing gowns.Will definitely return.

Rob Nicholson, General Manager at Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear willow771 Thank you for the great feedback; I'm glad that you enjoyed your deal with us and chose the upgrade to the balcony rooms. They are fantastic rooms (especially during the summer) as they over look the great garden space we have. We hope to welcome you back to stay with us again soon.

I took mum and family for a mini break. All had a brilliant time. Hotel, rooms etc were very clean and tidy. Fab accessibility for our disabled. Staff were polite and professional. Breakfast was yummy. Great day pass for Total Fitness.

"Excellent stay"

CarrieC844, Dublin, Ireland 21/02/2022

We had the most enjoyable stay at the Best Western PLUS Pinewood in Handforth. It is just perfect for visiting my parents who live a short 5 minute walk from the hotel. Reception staff are welcoming and friendly, restaurant is spacious, relaxing and food excellent and staff friendly and efficient. Bar is well stocked, and staff friendly and helpful. Room is clean, beds very comfortable and room has all you need including a fantastic shower. Housekeeping did a perfect job making up our room during our stay. We will definitely be staying here again.

"5 star Family weekend at pinewood in handforth."

Go23806303154, Dublin, Ireland 21/02/2022

Just returned from a weekend in handforth visiting family and staying in the pinewood. 5 of us in total and we had 2 Rooms which were comfortable and clean with a shower you could spend all day in. Food was fabulous from breakfast through lunch and dinner. A decent selection of food to choose from but not so much that you feel like there is still some creative effort in each dish. But the standout for me was the staff who all represented the hotel with generosity, flexibility, personality,passion and pride. To list the folk I had a personal encounter with, housekeeping, restaurant managers, servers, bar staff and reception. What a great team. And afterall, the people are the hardest thing to get right and when away from home it is the people you encounter that make a place warm and friendly even if all the rest is top notch too.

"Extremely good value for money, and on site parking too"

5
Rich W, Yanque, Peru 13/02/2022

The hotel is basic but very clean and ideal for a short stay. Extremely good value for money for an outer London hotel. There is on site parking too for £10 per night. The only issue in my room was that the electrical sockets did not work but I didnt need to use them and actually forgot to mention the issue when I checked out. The reception staff were very efficient.

"Ok place for one night"

witneytraveller, Witney, United Kingdom 11/02/2022

Decent hotel, clean and functional. Room was small especially the bathroom but ok for one night. Food was good and breakfast offered good choice. However if booking the dinner offer be warned it's a very limited choice. Would stay again if price was right. Staff were friendly

"Terrible"

1
User 03/02/2022

Extremely noisy throughout the whole night. Walls are so thin you can literally hear every word from the adjoining rooms. Plug sockets are on the opposite side of the room to the mirrors so impossible to dry your hair unless you stretch the lead into the bathroom (not advisable). No plug sockets near the bedside table so unable to charge phones. Rooms are tired and not the cleanest.

"Brilliant Staff"

193georginad, Wakefield, United Kingdom 03/02/2022

We stayed at the hotel 2 nights. One night before departure to Cape Verde from Manchester Airport and we decided to book a night last minute for when we returned late from Manchester Airport. The hotel was clean and the beds were comfortable. The only issue that we had is that we had booked the Park & Fly Package and on the morning that we were dropped at the airport the taxi firm insisted that we pay him even though the hotel had paid the taxi charge. As we had a flight to catch we just paid the man and asked for a receipt so we could inform the hotel. When picked up for our return flight the man who picked us up did not charge us. When we returned to the hotel for our second stay we advised the man at reception who advised us to take it up in the morning with the manager. As a good will gesture the hotel gave us free sandwiches which we were grateful for as we needed some food before bed. In the morning the hotel manager refunded us £15 which was the cost of the taxi on the way to the airport. Brilliant customer service and very apologetic. We were also advised that this isn't the first time that the taxi company has done this, to which we said it wasn't their fault but the taxi firm were to blame. The staff however acted brilliantly and were very apologetic.

"Good Groupon Deal"

kellyMP143, Chesterfield, United Kingdom 24/01/2022

We bought a Groupon Deal for our first proper night away since we had our daughter. We had a perfectly nice stay, dinner and breakfast was included and the food was fine, very decent choice for the Money we paid. Our room was satisfactory, had everything we needed but was in need of a refurb. I know many rooms have already been refurbished but ours was a little tired. The bathroom in particular was ready for a refit. We stayed in an executive room which had a big bed and a coffee machine. There was hot chocolate in the room too which is always a little treat. We were above the function room which you could hear but it didn't go on too late, and as parents to a toddler with a rare night off we slept deeply!

"Wedding Reception"

User 01/01/2022

Our third attempt at securing a venue for our wedding reception on 29th December and we couldn't have asked for a better place! Staff went above and beyond and all the stress was taken out of our hands. The bridal suite was huge and amazing and we most enjoyed our second night for relaxing and enjoying room service! Food was brilliant and all the guests thought so too.

Dear Kirstie W, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review following your special day; I am so glad that the team and myself could be part of it and deliver an exceptional wedding day for you both.

"Awful stay"

1
Pioneer39432585413, Grimsby, United Kingdom 28/11/2021

This hotel is so overpriced and outdated unless you pay the high prices for the upgraded rooms but bear in mind you are then over the function rooms so they are very noisy! Rooms are cold and very drafty in the old part, no heaters available and nobody was bothered. Towels and bedding are worn and have holes. The weekend I stopped there was a big brawl at a wedding and at 11pm three police vans arrived- not what you want when away for the night! Food is all fried, fish smelt terrible. Don't waste your money on this hotel

Rob Nicholson, General Manager at Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Hel Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are sorry that we were not able to meet your expectations during this visit. Regarding your accommodation, as you had booked a standard single room, we could only accommodate you in a standard single room on this stay. I am aware that previously when you have stayed with us that we have given you a complimentary upgrade however, on this occasion the hotel was full and as upgrades being subject to availability, we were unable to offer this to you on this occasion. There is always the option to secure an upgraded room by purchasing this at the time of booking; again, subject to availability. I am sorry that you were impacted by cold rooms during your stay, the room that you were allocated was located in the old part of the hotel, I appreciate that whilst we have done our utmost to weather proof the 100+ year old building I feel it only fair to point out that part of the draft was coming from the then happening Storm Arwen. There was indeed a bit of trouble at a wedding during your stay; we do try and avoid situations that could affect other guests negatively; part of the solution to this is that we will request the assistance of the authorities to deal with situations that has got out of hand; we do after all have a responsibility to our guests and team members to look after their welfare. These occurrences are extremely rare and not what we would normally see or expect at the hotel however we are relying upon the good nature of other people during such events not to cause trouble. I have passed on your food comments to our Head Chef; hence my delay in responding to your review. As my Head Chef has stated to myself the only thing fried is the fish & chips, we order the haddock in fresh and to be honest we buy it and it sells so fast due to its popularity, it's never in the building that long; apart from your own feedback we have not received any other negative feedback regarding the fish. Thank you again for your comments and I have made sure to share these with my team for constructive use. Regards Rob Nicholson General Manager

"The Best Western Pinewood Hotel - a Real Winner."

Philip J, Quorn, United Kingdom 28/11/2021

After a tiring drive in the dark the bright Best Western lights of the hotel were a welcome sight. A cheery and airy Reception and lively bar/restaurant area with friendly and happy staff greeted our arrival. We were quickly checked in and directed to our spacious, spotlessly clean and well furnished room. The restaurant offered a wide ranging menu; the food was tasty, freshly cooked and well presented and friendly and attentive staff were on hand at all times. The breakfast buffet was equally impressive. In summary. For a splendid break in a caring and welcoming hotel, where value for money is given the highest priority, the Best Western Pinewood Hotel is a sure winner.

Dear Philip Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. It is great to learn that we were able to provide you with a fabulous experience from the start to the finish of your stay.

"Avoid at all costs"

1
User 27/11/2021

This hotel is way below standard of a 4 star hotel, our first night we pulled back the bedsheets to discover hair all over the bed, the deputy manager came up and changed straight away but I would not expect this at the apparent standard of a 4 star, first night was noisy, wedding was on which is not really highlighted on the website. We had dinner on our first night which was documented as alcarte- it was not- chips were frozen, with some actually still hard and cold in the middle. Breakfast - good choice but again food was cold, we were served cold coffee and the eggs were undercooked. Night two was by far the worst a wedding that was on had the music on so loud the whole room vibrated for hours, I called down to reception several times and spoke to another manager who did absolutely nothing, I also spoke to a staff member called Lesley who was patronising and put the phone down, when I called back to ask why she had put the phone down I was told to get on with it as it was a wedding so basically it wasn't her problem we couldn't sleep. Lucky for us it was only a weekend away so the 3 hours sleep we got over 2 nights wasn't much of issue, however if I was flying the next day I would of been absolutely disgusted with the lack of care for guests that weren't at the weddings!! Part of the hotel was actually blocked off and not able to be used during the day due to one of the weddings also so no consideration for other guests. The hotel is not worth the money or the 4 stars it's been given! Avoid at all costs unless you want to rave into the night with the wedding guests!!

Rob Nicholson, General Manager at Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Faye Thank you for taking the time to leave your review following your stay at the Pinewood and I will do my utmost to respond to you based upon the information that you have given and my follow up with the team. Firstly, I can acknowledge that there was indeed an issue with the linen on your bed on the Friday evening which was promptly resolved; my apologies that this happened in the first place and we are in the process of discussing this with our external linen provider and our team. Regarding your dining experiences; If we had been informed of your dissatisfaction at the time of dining we would have addressed any issues you had. I can assure you that we do not use frozen chips, our chips are prepared fresh on a daily basis and quality checked prior to being served. The temperature of all food is checked prior to going out on our breakfast buffet; if there was the chance that it had not been and we were to be made aware of a temperature issue with the food then we would have addressed it immediately and replaced; however, we did not receive any negative feedback across the weekend regarding this. With regards to your own room in terms of location, the room which you were staying in is located above the kitchen. On the Friday evening we only had one event taking place in the hotel, this was on the opposite side of the building from the room in which you were staying. On the Saturday we had 1 wedding taking place which was again on the opposite side of the hotel. We did have a small family celebration in a function room located on the side of the hotel in which you were accommodated. I am aware that a member of the management team did come to your room to see how he could assist with regards to the noise that you were experiencing but he was duly dismissed by yourself. In addition, the offer of a room swap was given which was also duly dismissed. We do work with our clients holding such events and our guests to ensure that noise levels are kept to a reasonable level for everyone's comfort and enjoyment; the party hosts were approached and asked to reduce their music sound level for your satisfaction of which they did do so, as we did not receive any complaints from other guests the action taken was deemed satisfactory. Whilst an alternative option was offered to yourself from Lesley on Reception, when this was refused unfortunately Lesley did not have any further alternatives to offer as the hotel was almost full that evening; the only room being available was the room that was offered to you. I have spoken to Lesley and the senior Manager, Gabor, that tried to accommodate you on Saturday evening; I have been advised that whilst apologies were offered and the above actions were taken, there were no further options to provide since the request of an alternative room had been declined and they apologised to yourself on the occasions they spoke to you. Regards Rob Nicholson General Manager

Stayed here to celebrate my sister in law's 60th birthday, the first time our family has been able to get together since before Covid. We had the most wonderful time. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable, the food outstanding but most of all the staff - they could not do enough for us - even had the chef helping us put up birthday balloons! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

"CAR PARKING PICK UP IS DREADFUL"

Travelling-Man008, England, United Kingdom 13/11/2021

Room was alright but pre paid taxi service was crap waited 45 minutes and it cost £39 return. Don't book it as it's rather annoying. Not the taxi driver's fault but the hotel need to be keeping a check on this. Also why did I get eight YES EIGHT emails about my stay?!!!

Dear Travelling-Man008 Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback following your stay.

User 07/11/2021

We stayed here while our grandson was getting married at nearby Styal Lodge. My wife was arranging the flowers and because we come from Nottingham, she asked if she could prepare them in our room. The hotel could not have been more helpful, including providing a cool store room for their overnight storage. And the rest of our stay was equally good - lovely large and well-equipped room, excellent evening meal and breakfasts - the sausage and bacon were especially delicious. And without exception, the staff were helpful and friendly. Would thoroughly recommend it! Rick in the restaurant was especially helpful.

Customer service was amazing, food was surprisingly great considering I got room service. There was so many options and it was delish. Room was a great size for the price and was well set up. Shower was really good which I find rare at most stays away. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff.

This was a pleasant place for a weekend. The food was tasty, and the staff were friendly - there were several girls there who really went out of their way to make us comfortable, especially Kathleen, and they created a very welcoming atmosphere.

The accommodation is acceptable but nothing special. The rooms are clean but a bit dated. The bathroom is functional. I don't like the use of a shower curtain that sticks to you in the shower and the bath is quite high to climb into. The toiletries provided are nice. Breakfast was good, service could be improved. The one bonus is having use of an electric car charging point.

"Overpriced"

User 18/10/2021

The room which was an executive double was quite outdated looking and did not reflect value for the price, you could get a similar room at a big standard travel lodge for less than half the cost the staff however were very pleasant , on the way to check out the lift was also out of order

"Amazing customer service"

Carrie T, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 13/10/2021

Staff were compassionate, courteous, polite and over all went above and beyond to help me in a desperate situation, when another hotel refused to allow me to stay despite having a paid booking. The staff were helpful, put my mind at ease and made sure I had all I needed. They made me feel safe and valued. Excellent, above and beyond customer service. All staff were friendly and helpful.

This was a very quick overnight while visiting relatives and we arrived late and left early so can't comment on much. However the staff were friendly, the room spacious and very comfortable so we look forward to returning and seeing more of what the hotel has to offer.

As a disabled guest you expect the lift to work , at best it was hit and miss. Not much use to me The booking was made and payed for six days prior .at £135 I had to leave my Debit card details on booking in . At this time we were told by the receptionist that we were not being charged for anything. But it was for if we incurred any extras that were chargeable . Checking the transaction receipt I discovered we had been charged £155 in addition to the first charge. It was replaced back on my card with the excuse .” It was a replacement on duty” All in all not the best experience we have had . Luckily we spotted the “overcharge” You have done better on the past !!! Slipping standards ?

Great hotel with clean rooms. Decor dated, and needed more electrical sockets near the beds, but everything else was spot on. Very friendly experienced staff. There was a lovely wedding going on but the noise was barely audible. Plenty of parking but don't park near trees. Had to wash the birds mess off my car. Not a pleasant experience

Jeanette W, Wrexham, Wales, United Kingdom 27/09/2021

Booked a Groupon deal for me and my sister to celebrate her 70th birthday. Made to feel very welcome on arrival and after a slight mix up of our room we entered our allocated room to find balloons, banners, cake platter and a birthday card which my sister very happy. I cannot thank the staff enough for making our overnight stay so memorable. Our evening meal was a delight and we were very happy with our choice even if the set-menu for our Groupon deal was limited, we were very satisfied. Breakfast was excellent - continental and hot buffet with very good quality ingredients. The strawberry/banana smoothie was delicious and not often found on a hotel breakfast menu. We were very impressed with the whole visit from start to finish. Very friendly and polite staff, extremely clean bedroom/bathroom and excellent food/service. Highly recommend and will definitely return.

"Really good stay for a decent price"

User 25/09/2021

I booked this hotel as I was attending a wedding. I can't remember the price, I think it was £68 it was well worth it. The room I had was a double and it was very spacious and the price included breakfast. The breakfast had a continental and a full English. The continental was very surprising as it usually some cereal and a bowl of fruit but here they had cured meats, some cheese and a variety of fruit and fruit juices. The full English was a good spread as well, it was self serve but usually with these things it's some horrible looking sausages, scraggly bacon, beans and watery scrambled egg. Here they had the full works, black pudding fried eggs, nice sausages and bacon, tomatoes beans. It was a really good breakfast! The staff were very very friendly from the receptionist, to the people helping with breakfast to even the housekeeping staff. I would deffinately stay here again and reccomend this hotel.

User 22/09/2021

This is a fantastic hotel with amazing staff that are friendly, professional and go the extra mile. Having worked in hospitality previously, I'm rather fussy. I was welcomed late in the evening by Jess, who is a credit to the team. Wonderfully polite and helpful, I saw her several times throughout my stay where she dispensed extra coffee, plasters and smiles throughout my stay. Upon opening the door to my room, I was very impressed with the cleanliness and amenities, which included the normal tea and coffee, a coffee machine and most importantly, a fan located in the wardrobe. The room was gorgeous and I had a wonderful night's sleep. The only criticism I would give is there wasn't a bath in my room, but the shower was lovely and warm. Note my room was upgraded from my original booking. I also made a special request when booking, and this hotel did not disappoint - see pictures for my framed photo of Spock ♥ Simon, the handyman/gardener was also lovely, stopping to have a chat (which means a lot when you're traveling alone) in the beautiful gardens. I spent rather a lot of time there in the peace and quiet reading, the roses are rather lovely. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and I slept soundly all night. I'm staying in Manchester City centre this evening and while the hotel is perfectly adequate it's nothing compared to the personal service and attention to detail I had here. Nothing is too much trouble and should I be returning to Manchester I will be staying here again.

StephnaieS, Burnley, United Kingdom 05/09/2021

Stayed for 1 night as a stop over between destinations, I was unsure due to the reviews but gave this hotel a try. Plus point was the free parking and located close enough to a supermarket/ food establishments. The staff were friendly and check in was easy enough. The room was an okay size but very dated which for me instantly makes me think the place is unclean, the bathroom was small and uninviting, we did not use the bath or shower as it just did not look pleasant. The hotel was just okay and I would not stay again but no issues overall

"Faultless Wedding!"

Wilmslow124, Manchester 05/09/2021

We recently had our wedding here, due to Covid we had to change our date 4 times and I can honestly Say the staff were amazing and made us feel at ease each time it had to be changed. A big shout out to Kathy, Katherine and Gabor. Gabor helped run our day, from the night before the wedding he was very reassuring calming my wedding nerves and ensured our wedding day went to plan. The food was amazing, the rooms were spotless and the service was faultless!! I would recommend anyone to get married at the Pinewood Hotel.

"Just... disappointing"

2
User 05/09/2021

Booked this for a short break with my kids. £ 300 for b&b for four nights seemed reasonable, and since it's a four-star hotel I thought I couldn't go wrong. Check-in online was straightforward and it was easy enough to find our room, kind of wish we hadn't. Dirty walls, stains on the chairs, a shower unit that was easily from the 1990s... I don't know how often the family rooms are used, but ours was in desperate need of an update. Breakfast wasn't much better. I'm aware that this could be classed as an airport hotel, but not all the guests are looking to get away early of a morning. On all the days we made it downstairs before the end of service, but I got the distinct feeling that everything was too much trouble for the staff. The service got worse as the week went on, culminating in us being told to 'find a table' as opposed to being shown to one, which I'd have been happy to do if they didn't all have used cutlery and crockery on them. The final straw came when I was served undercooked chicken on the last night. The meal was refunded, but I did start to wonder how the hotel managed to receive a rosette. I had booked the hotel so my children could play on the man-made beach, which remained closed due to the poor weather during our stay, which was fair enough. My eldest and I laughed off the irony of seeing it open as we were leaving! A hilarious ending to an awful stay. We'll not be returning. Top tip: If you're not a gym regular but are looking to use the fitness centre the hotel has a link with, take a padlock.

"Disappointing Stay"

2
User 03/09/2021

Stayed here for 2 nights with my family and was expecting so much more from reading the reviews. Stayed whilst there was a wedding at the hotel and they pretty much took over the hotel. The doors to the rooms cannot be shut quietly so you hear every door in your corridor opening and closing. Certainly wouldn't recommended this hotel for a restful break. Rooms are very dated and small. Room wasn't ready on arrival and receptionist tried overcharging us compared to rate advertised.

"Absolutely awful service"

1
User 19/08/2021

We booked this hotel for 2 nights for a work event and very much regret it! They cancelled one room of our booking and resold it, so when our coworker arrived she was left stranded as there were no other rooms available in the hotel. We had told the receptionist she can't make the first night when we arrived but she will be here in the morning, she said that was no problem at all she'll make a note of it. However they instead resold the room without contacting us at all. It was an eventful week in town and all other hotels were booked up- we ended up having to book our colleague in a motorway stop off hotel 40 minutes from us!! They were not apologetic and offered no form of compensation at all, we were stuck paying for an even more expensive last minute booking at the other hotel and a taxi for 40mins- absolutely disgusting customer service. If you do end up here, make sure youre not on the side where the garden is as you end up with the pub people out there being noisy until late! Do not recommend at all.

Rob Nicholson, General Manager at Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear 532catrinb Thank you for your feedback. I am disappointed that you decided to post such a negative review, however, I think it only fair that I set out the circumstances of the booking so that others can judge who was at fault. I have spoken to my team regarding your stay with us here at the Pinewood and I am aware that your room was not cancelled by the hotel. In fact, out of the 3 rooms originally booked only 2 rooms checked in on the arrival date and the other room went through as a no show as your co-worker failed to check in on the correct day. This room was released automatically by our system thus returning it for general sale whereupon due to the level of demand it sold quickly. In addition, we were then expected to automatically have the knowledge that your co-worker was not going to arrive at the hotel until the Saturday despite not being informed at any stage; either prior to arrival or upon the check in of the other 2 rooms. We were therefore expecting your co-worker's arrival, unaware that travel plans had been changed. As this was clearly not the error or fault of the hotel we would not be offering compensation. Our commitment to customer service is evident in the number of positive reviews we have received and it is unfortunate that you have decided to blame the hotel for a situation we are not responsible for. Regards, Rob Nicholson General Manager

Booked this hotel for its proximity to Peak District and to trial it for future airport hotel stays. Despite being very close to Manchester airport and on a busy road, the hotel and its very attractive grounds did not appear to suffer from a lot of noise. The food at the hotel was of an excellent quality and very well presented, staff were friendly and the rooms were satisfactory, albeit on the warm side. We will definitely be returning

Very polite and friendly anything I needed as I was best lady to groom he couldn't of been more helpful it's lovely to stay at hotel and for a member of staff go above and beyond his job role!!! Really was a pleasure to meet him not to mention the head house keep obviously being best lady I had jobs that I needed to do and she was on had all day if I needed more towels for hairdresser and makeup artist and the decoration of suit was a nice touch!!! Monica who also organised the wedding was fab we had a slight change to colours of tables and we asked her to just cross it out on seating plan but she re printed it for us just fab!!! And the general manage Rob!!! What can I say iv never meet a general manager who actually gets his hands dirty normally they are sat in an office and only come out if needed but u can see he truly values his staff!!! And not scared to get his hands dirty overall u guys are amazing can't wait to visit again and would highly recommend for weddings they go above and beyond!!!

"Don't stay in Room 115 if there's a wedding on!!"

3
User 05/08/2021

Despite booking our stay months in advance, we were unfortunately given a room (115) directly above the function room. There was a large wedding party so the noise continued until the music stopped at midnight and shouting/door banging continued till 1am. Honestly though the dj was in our room it was so loud! Young daughter was very distressed, despite ringing reception we couldn't move rooms as they were full and we couldn't fit into a nearby hotel as they were also full. I love a good wedding as much as the next person, but this was a huge oversight by the hotel to put a young family in this room knowing that a function was booked. Received a full refund in the morning.

Saskx, Coventry, United Kingdom 31/07/2021

Although based on quite a busy road you didn't really notice. The garden was lovely to sit in with a lovely atmosphere in the evening, whilst in the morning it provided a very chilled start to the day. The food was very nice. We had the sharing platters which were scrummy. Staff are stretched though - as in most hospitality sectors at the moment.

Diane S, Carlisle, United Kingdom 25/07/2021

Arrived home on Saturday 24/07/21, after an excellent 3 night stay here. I was with 2 friends and we all felt the same. From the moment we arrived until we left we were given 5 star service. I was in room 319 (accessible) - perfect! The food and service was excellent, lovely choice on menus. Special mention to Rick - bar, Charlotte - reception, and there was a young lady waitress that was working Friday morning who always went the extra mile. She has long tied back blonde hair, sorry didn't get her name. If I am in the area for an event again I will definitely book to stay, in fact I would return anytime. Thank you all.

"Gritty outdated rooms that were not clean and heat unbearable"

pinkgem1987, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom 25/07/2021

I'm sorry to say that when you arrive at the hotel and see the lobby and dining area and beautiful gardens you think your room will be the same. We booked a family room which was literally a room crammed with a travel cot and 4 beds. Heat in the room was unbearable for the young children. Mouldy chips on the floor when we arrived in the room and mould in the bathroom. The room was so outdated, carpet looks like it needed shampooed and not worth the money we paid at all. Very disappointed and won't be choosing best western again.

"A lovely stay and great package deal"

chloekerfoot, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom 23/07/2021

Me and my partner went over Friday evening to stay for 1 night with a 3 course meal and breakfast included in our package deal. We arrived and dropped our bags off in our room and went down to their beer garden for a drink, our room overlooked the beer garden - it was sunny, beautiful and had a great atmosphere. Upon arrival the card situation was a little strange, we'd swiped a card for our room but it was never connected when we went to use the tab for drinks, so we had to go back to reception to fix this. The meal was lovely and the food was great, although one of the servers did spill a tonic all down me and I was offered nothing to fix this except sitting in wet clothes. The room was clean and tidy upon arrival, they have really lovely rooms with great decor and modern bathrooms. We were not advised when to leave our rooms nor was anything mentioned in the letter we were given, but we were ready to leave already in the morning when the cleaning lady came to do the room. A very good stay, just a few minor things here and there but other than that it was great!

The only negative was the temperate of the room - very hot. It wasn't overly warm weather so we couldn't understand why it was so warm, but there was a fan in there that helped a bit.

SunSeaker66, Stockport, United Kingdom 02/07/2021

A lovely afternoon tea sat outside on the lawned area in the sun. Crustless sandwiches, tiny cakes and a scone with jam & clotted cream, lovely. A couple of glasses of Prosecco just topped it off. Very friendly and eager to please. Would go again. Only negative - smokers by the front door. Not nice to walk through, either on entering, or leaving after such lovely food. Spoilt it sadly, but not enough to not go again. Did report to man on the bar, but will it be addressed? Not sure, he wasn't overly bothered but was polite and thanked me.

User 04/06/2021

Recently had our wedding here and the hotel and staff were amazing! Didn't feel like a covid wedding at all. Staff were so welcoming and friendly and was there super quick for table service. Kathryn the events manager was absolutely amazing and so accommodating, she couldn't do enough for us and our wedding (and I was literally a pain!). We made so many changes due to covid restrictions and Kathryn was there to support us through it all. Our whole stay went smoothly with help from Kenny and Monica, who managed our wedding reception and breakfast the morning after. The hotel was perfect for our children as there was a huge sandpit area with sun loungers outside. We enjoyed breakfast outside in the gardens with all our family and guests the day after and it was just perfect! Can't recommend this hotel enough!

Despite a busy bank holiday weekend, our wedding was absolutely faultless! Thank you to Kenny, Monica, Kathryn and the team for looking after us and making our day extra special. Delicious food, amazing service and we'll definitely be back! Our overnight stay was peaceful and relaxing and the team went out of their way to decorate the room for our arrival. There were plenty of different options for breakfast and ours came hot and on time. We couldn't have asked for more!

First and last stay at the best western. Loud noise of music kept us up at night. 1 hour wait for breakfast and was not worth eating. Had a hair in my egg. Waiters were rushed off their feet and service was unacceptable. I would never stay in this hotel again.

We had my elderly neighbours wake here last week and everything was beyond expectations. We had 11 of us in our party in the end including 2 vegans. We had afternoon tea served in the marquee in the gardens and there was plenty to go around. The two vegans (who usually have low expectations when dining anywhere) were blown away with the standard of their offerings. After a solemn occasion, this was the perfect location for family and friends to reflect and refresh. Ric, Alex and Serena and Harry all on hand to help and kept the tea and coffees flowing. Thank you again.

User 06/05/2021

Made a booking and cancelled within hours due to cover restrictions. The hotel would not refund money paid, atrocious manner on the phone. Desperate, dreadful behaviour from a low rate hotel. Be very careful when booking with this company.

Rob Nicholson, General Manager at Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Simon M Thank you for your feedback. I am disappointed that you decided to post such a negative review, however, I think it only fair that I set out the circumstances of the booking so that others can judge who was at fault. Your reservation was made with Booking.com on an advance purchase non-refundable basis two days prior to your call and five days before your scheduled arrival date. When you first rang to cancel the booking, our Reception Manager, who is a highly regarded member of the team, explained that any refund must be made through Booking.com. We were therefore expecting your arrival, unaware that you had cancelled your travel plans, until you phoned the day after you were due to check-in to once again demand a refund. At this point the reception manager repeated that any refund must be provided by Booking.com in line with their terms and conditions and patiently dealt with your reaction. Our commitment to customer service is evident in the number of positive reviews we have received and it is unfortunate that you have decided to blame the hotel for a situation we were not responsible for.

The hotel is nicely situated in Wilmslow area. A waling distance to the small parade of shops. A large car park. Checking in and out was swift. Staff are very good and helpful. Breakfast set up and items were good. Harry at the Bar and at breakfast is very helpful. I got a take away from the Chinese shop near the chicken place. Very good. Room was a decent size and decor was good. I could not work out the air condition system but I thinks it was just me. Enjoyed my 2 day stay alot. Will definitely stay at the hotel again. Would recommend it.

Lovely spacious room in pristine condition. The shower works like a dream! The staff were all lovely and helpful. We were shocked at how good the food was when it arrived as the prices on the menu weren't bad at all. I would recommend trying the salmon starter with quinoa and wasabi, what a treat and at only £7.50. Caesar salad also delicious. Hats off to the chef. Breakfast was great too. Highly recommended.

Took my 91year old mother in law here for her birthday.The hotel is mobility friendly with a ramp at the front of the hotel and disabled parking. The dining area is contempory with views of lovely garden areas via patio doors. The staff were attentive and pleasant. The food was really nice. Mixed sandwiches, assorted cakes and scones with jam and clotted cream served with tea or coffee. Water on the table is complimentary. A great experience for an elderly lady.

Tyketto_9, Walsall 27/09/2018

Cant say enough great words about this hotel. Tge friendly staff, cleanliness and freshness of the room, and cheaper to stay there and leave your car for 2 weeks and stay overnight twice than use Manchester Airport parking. You can leave your car in reliable hands, and get transport to the airport included. The main reason for the 5 stars is that we arrived back from Florida after being awake for over 36 hours, and check in time was 2 o'clock, and we were tired to say the least. I explained this to the reception staff and they hurried the cleaning staff to prioritise the room and get us in there as quick as possible. By half ten our room was available and we got some much needed sleep, thank you .

smfromglasgow, Glasgow, United Kingdom 20/09/2018

We only stayed here for 2 nights, prior to and on return from holiday, flying from Manchester Airport. It was the first time also for using a Best Western. All we can say is if this is what the Best Western hotels are like, we are converts. I booked this initially due to the very competitive cost which included 2 weeks parking and taxi transfers. I was initially wary because it seemed really cheap and I wondered what I would get. I could not have been more wrong. The hotel was modern and clean but also homely and welcoming. It is set in nice grounds and about 20 minute transfer from hotel. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. They went that extra mile in ensuring that flowers, card, balloons, cakes were in the room for our return from holiday to celebrate my wife's birthday. The breakfasts were very good standard and always warm. The dinner in the restaurant was also very good. Overall a very good option to stay even if it is for the airport run. Extremely good value and the staff are a credit to the hotel and organisation

"A stay full of positives, just about keeps all 5 stars"

Matthew J, Lancashire 18/09/2018

This is a ‘Very Good' hotel, but I have decided to give the full 5 stars since we didn't actually come across any issues and felt the value for money was excellent. We booked a sleep park and fly package (we couldn't find a premier inn cheap enough and has forgotten to book airport parking) A room on Saturday evening, parking at the hotel for a week, and taxi transfers to the airport and back - £116, completely faultless, and far far cheaper than booking airport parking and a nearly hotel, particularly on a Saturday evening. Hotel has ample parking round the back. This whole process was so efficient, form filled out at reception for the time the taxi was to be booked for, kept up to date via text message and taxi waiting outside at the exact time requested. The hotel is 4*, and deserves just that, it is set in some really nice gardens just off a main road, but quiet enough to enjoy the ambiance. The staff were helpful and friendly but didn't doing anything outstanding - again, good enough for us. The room was spacious with some nice extras, docking station, coffee machine etc. A large TV with good range of channels, hairdryer, ironing board, iron, all the usual stuff. Bathroom had a shower but no bath, and the room looked out into the nice gardens. The bed was extremely comfortable, one of the best we've slept in this year. The room was spotlessly clean too. Negatives - few and minor - A wedding was ongoing at the same time we were there, and as others have said in their reviews, it's SO SO LOUD. People out in the gardens ALL NIGHT and still noisy in the reception area at 4am when we went to get in the taxi. This was a wedding reception so this can be forgiven, but perhaps the guests should not be allowed outside at such hours making so much noise. - No Air Con. It wasn't a particularly warm night, but the room was absolutely boiling, we had the window open which helped slightly, but it was too loud. There was a fan in the wardrobe which we thought would save us, but after turning it on I thought I was sat under an aeroplane engine it was so loud, even on the lowest setting - so that went back in the wardrobe. Overall, a great stay - may come back

Dear Matthew J, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. It is great to read such a constructive review and we will certainly use the information provided to improve the facilities for future guests. We have already invested in new tower fans for the rooms which are much quieter than the ones you had. We have also implemented a number of signs for the exit to the gardens requesting that guests respect those trying to sleep by keeping the noise to a minimum when they are enjoying the facilities. Around 70% of our bedrooms have both baths and showers and on your next visit please do drop us a note to say you would prefer a room with both and we will ensure that your room is allocated accordingly. We look forward to welcoming you back soon, Kind Regards, Hayley

"Free Parking"

Achnacloich, Copthorne, United Kingdom 13/09/2018

I stayed at the Pinewood when in the area on business primarily because they were running bed and breakfast offer which represented the best deal available in the area when adding in the benefit of free parking. I have stayed on previous occasions when a similar offer has been available. The hotel is located about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Handforth which offers some good restaurants if you are staying for several nights and fancy a change from the hotel fare The car park is large and there are always spaces available though if you arrive later in the evening they may not be close to reception. On the plus side if you arrive early and the weather is good then you can relax in the garden area. Check in staff were efficient and friendly and completed the formalities with the minimum of fuss. My room was nicely furnished and nicely presented though space was limited between the foot of the bed and the wall mounted television. There was no air conditioning in the room which could have been an issue had the weather been hotter Tea and coffee was available with enough supplies for several cups. The bathroom was spotless with reasonable lighting over the mirror. Toiletries were provided and were of a reasonable standard The bed was large and very comfortable and enjoyed a very good nights sleep Breakfast was a bit of a curate's egg. A good selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt and a cold buffet with cheese and cold cuts. However the hot buffet displayed the all too common practice of cooking large quantities of items and leaving them to sit on a hot plate. The fried eggs looked particularly unappetising and the top bacon rashers had started to dry out to the extent that I decided to forego what should have been my starter for the day. Tea and coffee was brought to the table and the staff were attentive in ensuring refills were available when required. Would I stay again? Yes, if there is an offer available as the Pinewood then offers very good value. In the meantime I will develop a liking for poached eggs cooked to order.

Very smart hotel, great staff. Ate in the restaurant, very limited menu I'm not a fussy eater but would struggle to eat in if more than one night stay. But don't let that put you off, just be aware. The bar and general areas are very good, will return some time soon. Great for the airport if you need a stop over. Hope you enjoy, thanks.

AndreVCheltenham, Cheltenham 08/09/2018

As in other reviews, the wedding parties are ridiculously loud - and I mean ridiculous. Intended to eat at the hotel but was far too noisy. Then back in our room it was too loud to even watch the television. I would not stay here if I were paid if I'd known this is what they do. Can't believe the management think it's acceptable to take bookings when they have weddings going on.

jules1311, wakefield 05/09/2018

Just stayed here for 2 nights but I have stayed in this hotel before and it is a lovely hotel. The reason why I didn't give 5/5 is the first night I decided to get my breakfast delivered to my room for a £5 supplement fee which I think is a fantastic idea and it was lovely. See photo! I then decided to do this again last night for this morning so the procedure is you have to hang your order on your door before 5am and they come around at your designated time however no one collected it this morning so I didn't have any breakfast, not sure how this was missed so I was slightly disappointed and hungry but I had to leave for work. Room was lovely and loved that there was a fan as it was needed! Reception very friendly too and called taxis when needed to get to work, very quick! I do enjoy staying at this hotel!

abbafan, Skegness, UK 29/08/2018

The Pinewood is always our hotel of choice when flying from Manchester airport. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. The park and stay offer is very convenient as you leave your car in the hotel car park and they include a private taxi to and from the airport in the package which can only be booked directly with the hotel. Another highlight of this hotel is the excellent restaurant which is worth the stay just to dine here. See separate review.

ProfD_12, Caerphilly, Wales, United Kingdom 26/08/2018

Like most large hotels these days weekends are mainly for weddings with other guests mixing at the edges. Besides the noise associated with discos booming until 1 am these rooms suffer from a major flaw. The heating system, once on, sounds like the pipes of someone running a bath with a constant 24 hours roar in the background all the time. Not once moment of silence not even in the middle of the night :-( You cannot alter it from your room. Even ear plugs in don't stop the roaring sound! Reception said you just have to put up with it :-( If you like a quiet nights sleep AVOID. Also large bed it two beds put together with a sheet over the top.

"Over priced, snooty menu and bland atmosphere."

User 23/08/2018

Have not stayed at the hotel only visited the main restaurant for a dinner. I will start with the positives, the restaurant is modern and stylish and with a good range of food and wines. Now the negatives, the menu was full of pretentious terms like jus, puree, pan fried, hand selected, kobe beef etc etc, it drove me made trying to dicherper what to eat. The waitress did her best to say that the hotel was trying to appeal to new foodie type customers, but this was a saturday night and the place was like a morgue. Although the food turned out to be quite tasty, the sheer pretentiousness of the menu and unnecessary complexity of it made for a rather irritating evening and as a group we all decided we would not be returning, overpriced, bland atmosphere and snooty menu not for me thank you.

If you are looking for an airport hotel when traveling from Manchester this is the one! We took the overnight and airport parking deal which was really well priced. The staff were all really friendly and helpful from the friendly lady taking the intial booking to reception and bar staff. The rooms were clean and comfortable beds. Nice outside area to sit and relax. We parked for the week at the hotel and were provided with complementary transfer to airport which was around 4 miles away and pick up on return. Fantastic service from hotel we will use again and recommend to all.

Visited this hotel with friends. Spent two nights one of which we all had dinner. (Around 60 people) Could not fault the rooms, the service. The food at dinner was exceptionally good . The breakfast had everything you could possibly require. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. You will not be disappointed.

We stopped here purely due to the ratings and feedback from previous clients and weren't disappointed. It is a comfortable and clean hotel with a good breakfast very reasonably priced. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We actually booked to stay there again the Night before we flew back to the USA because it was so close to Manchester Airport and very reasonable. Would keep this hotel in mind if we flew from Manchester again.

"Gone a bit downhill"

User 22/07/2018

We stayed here overnight again recently and it seems to have gone a bit downhill since we last stayed. There was a wedding on when we arrived and when my husband popped back up to our room to collect something he passed a couple of staff giggling in the corridor because they'd pinched a bit of the wedding cake. If that had been my wedding and I'd found out, I wouldn't have been impressed. At breakfast we were seated at a table that wasn't set properly and I had to go hunting for butter, jam and milk, all of which had presumably been used by the previous occupants. When my pot of tea arrived it had no tea bag in the hot water and again I had to leave my rapidly cooling breakfast to get a tea bag from one of the waiting staff. Dirty plates were left on the table despite staff walking past and seeing them there several times. This made it difficult to fit everything on the tiny table. These are basic things that are not hard to get right but there just didn't seem to be anyone in charge or in control of what was going on. I think some staff training might be in order. Particularly for the managers, if there were any present.

Dear Elizabeth D, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I am sorry that we failed to deliver the usually high standards you have come to expect from us on this occasion. All areas have now been fully investigated and addressed internally. Please rest assured that the team you overheard that had enjoyed a piece of wedding cake had not taken this from the wedding taking place on the day of your stay. We had a wedding the day prior as well and the bride and groom asked that some of the left over cake be given to the team as there was too much for them to possible hand out to their guests. Regarding breakfast this is certainly not the standards of delivery that we expect and a full retraining program is being rolled out to ensure that this is not repeated. I do hope that you will consider returning to us in the future and that you will have a much improved stay at that time. Kind Regards, Hayley

From check in to check out our visit was perfect. Lovely friendly staff modern hotel. We booked a dinner offer which was brilliant value for money, food was freshly cooked with lots of menu choices. Waiting on staff could not have been nicer and chatted with us and at breakfast. Rooms spacious and spotless just hot but we had a fan. We'd stayed the night before in a hallmark hotel there was no comparison we will be back

John-ChrisMc, Manchester, UK 05/07/2018

Our first visit to this hotel, and found the gardens and location, excellent. The tea itself, we both agreed was one of the best ones we have experienced. We are regular visitors for Afternoon tea, and have had many to be good judges here. We would have no hesitation in recommending this location. The quality, selection, freshness and quantity were all top class. Large pot of tea, and the offer of top up, or coffee later was also a strong positive. Excellent service by all staff met. Overall highly recommended.

"Paper thin walls. Can hear people in rooms either side talking though they probably weren't being loud"

capturethemood, Leeds, United Kingdom 24/06/2018

Booked here spontaneously and got a last minute deal. 85 pound for the night. We chose the hotel because it had reviews advising it was clean and tidy. We were given a room with 3 beds (only 2 of us staying), so we welcomed the space. The walls were paper thin and so it was hard to drown out the voices coming through the walls without turning the tv up. So we found it hard to relax. We would choose an alternative hotel next time on this basis. In addition I thought the room was expensive given it did not come with breakfast.

Meet here most months with friends for lunch and a catch-up. The food has consistantly been good, not one complaint from any of us. The only comment I would make is that service can be slow.

am2103, London, United Kingdom 20/06/2018

Stayed here on several occasions. This time travelled alone . Basic newly refurbed double room fine for one person but cramped for 2. Superior much better but more expensive. Walk in shower as I requested. Space in bathroom tight. Shower screen quite narrow so power of shower limited to avoid flooding. Several messages left on notices asking guests to report any breakages/ missing items/requests to open windows more.... Name of chambermaid recorded . Customer service at reception good. I did not eat here so cannot comment on restaurant.

HolidayFamilyUK, Stockport, Cheshire 19/06/2018

We celebrated a 70th birthday here with afternoon tea for the group. It was our second visit here so we already knew we were in for a treat. A good sandwich selection and a really good selection of cakes with unlimited hot drinks. A minor criticism would be that there are lots of different cakes so you can't try one of each (I'm likely sounding greedy and I definitely don't go short!). Also worth mentioning the staff who are super attentive and helpful! Also really nice gardens (often used for wedding photos) so take the camera and grab some lovely photos (weather permitting!)!! Well worth a visit and expect to return!

"Family wedding - couldn't be better!"

Neil B, Manchester, United Kingdom 17/06/2018

Our daughter was holding her wedding at the Pinewood and a good number of family members were staying over which gave us the opportunity to view several rooms - all of which were good sized, some were very spacious, all were clean & well presented and kitted out to a good standard. Fast WIFI - free of charge - is available throughout the hotel. The main event was the wedding though and that's where the Pinewood really came into its own. Karen & the team were really professional, organised and friendly and the function rooms, bar, terrace & garden all worked well to make it an ideal venue. Food was really good, from the wedding breakfast to the late night buffet to the excellent breakfast the morning after the wedding. I've entitled the review 'couldn't be better' and I mean it, a perfect day leaving some wonderful memories.

claire16986, Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom 10/06/2018

Stayed here on a last minute Groupon deal of bed, breakfast and 2 course meal on a Friday night for just £79 so we weren't sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised the room was lovely and modern and more than comfortable for 2 people overnight the rather large tv was an added bonus. The bed was so comfy and we slept really well. We went to the restaurant for our meal which was a £20 allocation from their menus. We ordered a rump beef dish from the seasonal menu which cost the £20 we'd had a bit of a wait for it which the chef sent his apologies for but said the wait would be worth it and boy was he right the meal was amazing the beef was cooked perfect and melted in the mouth and the smoked potatoes accompanying it were devine it was probably one of the best meals I've ever had. We had Manchester tart for dessert which I was really happy about seeing on a menu as I love it but have not seen it anywhere else I've been before and it was lovely and refreshing. If you get the deal on Groupon book it it's amazing value for money we will definitely be back to the restaurant when we're around that way we're and looking at using the hotel when we go away as it's close to the airport.

Dear claire16986, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us.

I visited this hotel with a McDonald's Monopoly win. It's more expensive than places I usually stay. Check in was easy, plenty of parking on site. Room clean and comfortable. WiFi accessible in room. Tea making facilities and nice shower too. Room was quite nice, although overlooked nearby houses. Good amount of natural light. Had meal in restaurant both nights. Pricey and portions not huge. Fancy names for normal menu items (eg fish and chips) Well cooked though. Breakfast was brilliant, continental and cooked, eat all you can. Good fresh fruit/smoothie options. This hotel is in Handforth, not much there, few small shops/ cafes. Airport not so close, I did not notice additional noise due to proximity, but I don't think it's hard to get to from here. A nice stay, expected comfort. Staff friendly and helpful.

Dear Elephantemg, Thank you for taking the time to write your review of your recent stay.

From here it moves up through our 180 menu to the seasons menu which is more of a fine dining option. I am pleased that you enjoyed the breakfast. We try our best to offer a varied selection and are very fortunate to have an excellent team to accompany this. We do hope that we can welcome you back in the future, Kind Regards, Hayley

Rockboffin, Swindon 04/06/2018

This hotel was booked by my organisation as part of a business trip and we chose it on the basis of location, price and facilities. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly and courteous staff and the hotel looked as if it was recently refurbished. The rooms were very clean and everything you need was available. The beds were comfortable and I had a king size which was very nice indeed. We decided to have bar meals on the first night of our stay and the quality and price of the meals were reasonable. I had a burger and was not disappointed.. My only complaint was the bun was a bit dry but otherwise good. Breakfast is excellent, good choice and variety, plenty of condiments, variety of fruit juices and excellent fried breakfast. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for business meetings , we had booked a syndicate room and the staff provided some equipment that we had forgotten so top marks there.

User 29/05/2018

Pros- Lovely rooms. Beautiful gardens. Fantastic service. (Special Thankyou to the young lady with glasses and braces who served us at dinner, unfortunately we didn't catch a name, lovely girl who couldn't have done more for us). Comfy bed. Good range of gins (definitely recommend the palma violet and Turkish delight ones!) Cons- Rooms very hot, with no air conditioning. They did supply a fan but would expect this to already be available or air con in a 4* hotel in 26 degree weather. Food not great for vegetarians. When booking we were advised that there were lots of veggie options (we are both veggie) and there was only one or two mains to choose from on the menu. Also very overpriced- this didn't affect us as we had prepaid for dinner but the standard charge for the average, cannelloni dish we had was £12.45; which seems a bit ridiculous. Also veggie sausages were vile. Final niggle, the bathroom is extremely small; only one person could be in there at a time and barely enough space to turn around, water pressure was also not great. All in all it was good but not the usual standard of 4* that we have previously experienced. Overall, the hotel was lovely and the selling point for us was the excellent service. The staff really do go out of their way to provide excellent service and are a credit to the hotel. A few small niggles that were overlookable as we were only staying for one night, but any longer and this may create some issues.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I can see that the room you had is unfortunately one of our smaller rooms and do apologise for this. All of the rooms vary due to the listed status of part of the building. If you return in the future please do contact me directly and I will happily ensure that you are in a larger room.

bexk74, Great Yarmouth, United Kingdom 25/05/2018

I stayed here from 18th May to 21st May and found the whole experience to be wonderful. I stayed with my parents as we were in the area to celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary. The hotel was beautifully kept to a high standard allowing us to feel cared for and comfortable. The gardens are amazing and give a real sense of relaxation and peace despite the hotel also being in a brilliant location to access all major roads easily. Once in the hotel you feel you are in the middle of now where and it was great for my parents and I to return there regularly and get time to relax before continuing with the various things going on for their anniversary weekend. The staff and food were superb throughout the entire stay. We ate in the restaurant, from the snack menu and enjoyed fantastic breakfast choice every morning. Liam was the chef whilst we were there and I think he did an outstanding job, while also finding the time to have a friendly chat with us in the morning. The two managers on shift at different times were also fantastic, being friendly and helpful, but unfortunately I didn't get their names. The lady manageress on the Friday night was chatty, friendly and very helpful, making me feel instantly relaxed on my first evening and th;e Bar man on our last night (Sunday) was also exceptionally chatty, friendly and helpful, despite nursing his broken heart at Man Utd being beaten the previous day ;-) Being in the industry myself I appreciate the effort that goes in to customer service and the Pinewood excelled in this area. The room was well decorated, kept brilliantly clean and very comfy. An added bonus for me on the trip was to find a bath in my room which was a luxury much needed for my aching bones after a long drive from Norfolk. All in all, as you can probably tell, I can not say enough good about my experience and should I find myself up North again in need of somewhere to stay, I will definitely be back. Thank you to the entire team for a fantastic weekend, you added an extra special touch to my parents Golden Wedding celebrations. Keep up the good work.

Sara B, Nottingham, United Kingdom 23/05/2018

We needed a hotel just for one night and managed to get a good deal on a room here. The room was spacious, no noise from outside the hotel or the corridor and the bed very comfy - with lots of pillows! :) The staff were really helpful and polite, check in and out was really straightforward. I can't comment on the restaurant as we didn't eat there but we did get a snack at the bar and this was fine - not the best I've ever had, but no complaints, and the staff in the bar area were again very polite and happy to help. I recommend choosing a room deal with breakfast included, it cost us an extra £20 for the both of us, but the breakfast was really good, I'm a vegan and there were plenty of options for me, and pleased to find lots of fresh fruit on offer as well. I'd definitely stay here again, easy access to the airport as well. Thanks for a pleasant, if short, stay :)

davidbarlow4, Preston, United Kingdom 23/05/2018

Altogether eleven members of the family had arranged for five rooms following attending a wedding at a local Golf Club. Despite prior arrangements having been made by the Bride and Groom to have breakfast included we were told this couldn't be given. Also the only rooms available were Executive Rooms, more expensive than those originally promised and not including breakfast. To rub salt into the wound when we woke up we found a dead cockroach in our room which I reported to the reception desk. The receptionist merely said she would report it to the cleaner to remove it, as if it was nothing. Very disappointed with the lack of concern. On the plus side the breakfast we had was very good although this did add £40 to my bill.

HayleyLane, General Manager at Best Western Plus Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear davidbarlow4, Thank you for taking the time to write the review of your recent stay with us. I am sorry that you did not receive the originally agreed room type and price. I have looked into your reservation and can see that the you opted to book via booking.com rather than directly with us. Unfortunately the offer provided to the group was for direct bookings only. Regarding the unwelcomed visitor to your room, I am sorry that this would have been the last thing you wanted to see. However I can assure you that it was not a cockroach, it was a Maybug. With the current, welcomed sunshine they do like to make their way into the shade and unfortunately your room was close to a fire exit that had been left open. I will however speak to the receptionist as this should have been explained you to once the beetle had been identified. I do hope that we can welcome you back in the near future and if I can be of any assistance when the time arises please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Kind Regards, Hayley

Visited Monday afternoon for food. Absolutely beautiful Afternoon Tea, the best I've had (and I've had a lot!). The food was delicious and plentiful, lovely selection of little cakes, homemade scones. Only slight disappointment was squirty cream instead of clotted. Service was fantastic; many thanks to Rick who looked after us. Beautiful garden to sit in as it was a gorgeous day. Highly recommended, already planned our next visit!

Stayed here last Friday night, check in was easy and quick. Upgraded my room for £15 and the room was huge, nice bath and separate shower, comfy bed and large tv with various channels. Only let down is no air con but there is a fan in the room which was loud and full of dust on the back.

Typical hotel you get nowadays, nothing stands out as good, but no air-conditioning, a reception that does not listen, or chooses to ignore you, make it 3 star rating, at best. We had no air-conditioning, so asked for a fan. We tried to phone reception but the phone was out of order, so I went down to reception to ask for the fan and informed them that the phone didn't work. I was told that it would be dealt with, it wasn't and no apology or reason why. Also wedding parties are held hear until around 12am on a Saturday. Not good when you're up at 4 to catch a flight.

HayleyLane, General Manager at Best Western Plus Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Karl S, Thank you for taking the time to write your review of your recent stay. I am sorry that we failed to meet your expectations on this visit. I have identified the receptionist with which you spoke and further training will now be delivered as it is not acceptable that no apology was given. I am sorry that you were disturbed by the wedding party and I can imagine that being kept awake when you have such an early flight is not ideal. We do try our best to allocate leisure guests away from any events that we are hosting however this is not always entirely successful. Your feedback will help us to make improvements and I do hope that you will consider returning in the future to see the improvements for yourself. Kind Regards, Hayley

"Extremely disappointing and noisy "

Karen M, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom 30/04/2018

Extremely disappointed. This hotel books weddings and parties and they don't inform you when they are. After arriving at the airport after a very long journey, we arrived and a wedding was taken place. A disco until 12.30am when all you want is sleep. This is not an airport hotel. The staff were disinterested. We were told it is a very popular hotel for occasions. We were on top floor but fire exit doors were underneath which were opened from the wedding. We could not eat in the hotel due to the noise and busyness. Very disappointing indeed. Go to the premier inn instead just down the road.

HayleyLane, General Manager at Best Western Plus Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Karen M, Thank you for taking the time to write your review of your recent stay with us. I am most disappointed that we failed to deliver our usually high levels of service. We have identified the receptionist that you spoke with and further training is being delivered. I am also sorry that you were allocated a room above the wedding. We do our best to ensure that leisure guests are allocated away from our functions however we occasionally fail to get this entirely correct. Should you be coming back to the area in the future please do contact us directly to make your reservation and we will then be able to advise you if there is an event taking place and ensure that you are kept away from any possible noise.

Norman C, Silves, Portugal 30/04/2018

Overnight stop after a very late flight arrival. Very disapointed, mainly that this is NOT as described an 'airport hotel'. Receptionist says they are allowed to call it an airport hotel if it's within 15 miles of an airport! Cost almost £40 return taxi just to get to and from the hotel. On arrival we found a big loud party going on in the function room next to reception - impossible to talk to the receptionist. Our room was directly above the function room and everything was shaking, the noise did stop after about an hour (just before 1 a.m.) but utterly disgusted. Room nothing special, OK but certainly not worth £100 a night. Full English breakfast was good, though the coffee was poor. Would not recommend the hotel for anything except the breakfast, if you need an overnight at Manchester airport pay the bit extra for one of the on-airport hotels and save the wasted taxi fare.

HayleyLane, General Manager at Best Western Plus Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Norman C, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am sorry that you found the hotel unsuitable for your stay and that you were allocated so close to the wedding. I would be interested to know which taxi service you used as our preferred company charges £11 to take guests to the airport and £15 for the return journey. This is then reduced if you are staying with us on a park and fly package. I am pleased to see that you enjoyed the breakfast. We receive a lot of compliments on our coffee but we are now investigating whether we should look at a different strength of bean. I do hope that you will reconsider staying with us in the future and if I can be of any assistance when such an occasion arises please do not hesitate to contact me. Kind Regards, Hayley

Darren L, Wareham, United Kingdom 28/04/2018

Needed to stay after a flight into Manchester on Business. The hotel feels fresh and modern and the room was comfortable and well appointed. I didn't eat dinner as I just wanted to catch up on some work so I walked up to the local Tesco express for a sandwich. The hotel is well located for my needs, far away enough from the airport not to be hounded by aircraft noise. I normally do not give 5 stars to hotels as I believe all hotels catering for business customers should provide electrical charge points for cars. I didn't see them but later was informed they have 2. So all in all an excellent find of a hotel on the BW points system

"Disappointing "

2
User 24/04/2018

Firstly, I don't complain to get anything. But I believe an honest review is feedback for the hotel as well as future guests. Now, I made a mistake through my online booking system through my work. At 2230 at night I booked a hotel for the following night but turns out it books me in for the same night. I've tried to book hotels for the same day before and it wouldn't let me. So yes I made a mistake. I had an email invoice from hotel. So I rang to ensure I was booked in for the night I wanted. The night I had booked (wrong night) was a double bed but now the only option was a single room or a support for 60 pound more. I contacted hotel as I am a diamond rewards customer with Best Western and explained that my company booking system had let me book the wrong night. I didn't ask for money back, but as I hadn't stayed, therefore I hadn't had breakfast, and my room hadn't needed cleaning and that I'm paying for another night as a diamond BW customer I could get the upgrade to the superior room. This never happened. Worth a try right? But I accepted the single room. And paid 99 pound for it. I have seen caravans bigger. I could lay in bed and touch the wardrobe on the opposite wall. How a hotel can charge 99 for a room this small is beyond me. My spare room in my new build house has more floor space. I went to dinner. Initially after being tired from work I would ordinarily order food to room but as the room was so claustrophobic I went to eat in the restaurant. I was greeted by some duty supervisor who literally told me off for not booking. She fitted me in and I was grateful only to sit in the restaurant filling 6 of the 25 tables I counted. The food was good. The pudding was good. The menu was good. The waitress that hosted me was very pleasant. I came back to the room the watch tv to find the signal kept making the screen blocking, making it impossible to enjoy it. I am a great fan of BW hotels but I must say, that despite the service of the waitress in the restaurant my stay here was quite disappointing. I will stick the the cresta court from now on, where you get what you pay for. 99 pound for a tiny room isn't, in my view, acceptable when a premier inn down the road would have given me a king size, a working tv and less claustrophobia. Maybe I need to understand what a BW “plus” means? Is it similar to a Tesco “metro”?

Bit disappointing, loud music until one in the morning then loud chatter that seemed to go on for another half hour or so. The room was small and claustrophobic. On the plus side the bed was comfortable and the breakfast very good.

andrew h, Anglesey, United Kingdom 17/04/2018

very disappointed after inadvertently booking 2 rooms, (duplicated booking in error). I asked hotel if could amend, but werent very helpful. So i cancelled one room, straight away, but i cancelled the 'flexible' rate room wrongly, instead of the non flexible rated room. Even though it was a genuine mistake there was no understanding or lenience, in my request to amend, as I had to change flight and was required for previous room. Sometimes we all make mistakes, but in this case, I paid for it, was charged, even though explained what had happened, and was treated just like any other 'number' customer i guess, with a not possible to amend unless i pay the new rate of £86.50 (after being pleased on previous visit to be offered a special rate of 58.50 incl breakfast. So guess I'll think twice, when booking not only through booking.com, (who were very understanding) but said the hotel wasn't able to be 'flexible' themselves! So i cancelled.

"Helpful staff disappointing room and noise levels"

Cara D, Tiverton, United Kingdom 16/04/2018

The staff are brilliant, helpful and efficient. Stayed two nights in an executive room. The room was very small, no room to put suitcase on the stand, only one socket for multiple use - lamp, kettle and phone charger, no sockets near bed. Bed extremely hard with horrid pillows and stiff duvet. First night woken at 4.00 am by a brief false alarm, this was loud and startling, difficult to go back to sleep after the shock. Second night disturbed until 1.00 am by a very noisy wedding reception. I was annoyed that we hadn't been warned about this. Guests for the wedding should be accommodated in rooms above the reception area so that other guests can be away from the loud compare and music. In all it was a very disappointing stay - you go to a hotel to sleep and on both nights this was not possible because of the noise!

HayleyLane, General Manager at Best Western Plus Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Cara D, Thank you for taking the time to write the review of your recent stay. I am truly disappointed to see that we failed to deliver our usually high levels of service on this occasion. I am sorry that the fire alarm woke you on the first night of your stay. As I am sure you can appreciate the health and safety of our guests is our priority and when the fire system is activated at night it does go straight into full alarms whilst the team investigate. On this occasion another guest was smoking in their room and once the issue had been resolved the alarm was silenced as quickly as possible. With the room allocations I completely agree that only guests attending functions should be placed in bedrooms that may hear residual noise from the event. Having checked your reservation I can see that you were attending a wedding at a local venue and thus the reason why you were allocated this room. We do try to ensure that anyone whom is not attending an event is furthest from the noise and unfortunately we do not always get this right. I do hope that you will consider returning to the hotel in the future and as such a time arises please do not hesitate to contact me directly and I will ensure that there are no events taking place on your chosen date and allocate you a quiet room. Kind Regards, Hayley

janine_richardson1, jrichy026 15/04/2018

Stayed here for one night after a wedding. The wedding itself was nice no problems there our room wasn't great however. Good points - all the staff we spoke to or dealt with were nice and polite. The breakfast was good we had to wait a few minutes for a table and the young lady that saw us to our table couldn't apologise enough for the wait (it was literally 2 minutes). Check in was quick. Comfy bed. Bad points - the room was £85 for the night, the bathroom was old and dated and had black hairs all over the place on the floor, at the side of the sink a long black hair from someone's hair in the bath it just didn't look clean. There were stains all over the carpet and I didn't feel comfortable walking round with no shoes. The room was cold so I turned the radiator up which made loads of noise so had to turn it down again when we got back as couldn't sleep with the noise. The windows didn't open to air the room in the morning. The furniture was all old looking and worn. We just thought for the price it was a rip off and they should be charging half the amount. The hotel corridors and if our room is anything to go by could just do with a makeover. We didn't bother complaining with us only being there for one night and it being a wedding but if I would have been there for longer I would have been asking them to give it another clean.

As above, the bed was extremely comfortable, room quiet, large Tv nicely refurbished room. I personally found the menu, difficult to choose from, Quite a lot of different style chips involved with the two menus rather similar and rather expensive. We found the third menu which is a two/three course menu the second night of our stay, still rather expensive. Eating out of a metal basket may look great for presentation but it is very difficult to eat from. Give me a plate anytime. The breakfast was okay but luke warm both days and the bacon looked microwaved. The staff are extremely friendly. I have given 5* for the hotel and 3* for the food making it 4*

Thoroughly enjoyed a relaxed afternoon tea at the Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel with my friend Amanda, who had made the booking for us. On arrival, the very friendly staff provided us with options on where we could take our tea. We decided upon the formal dining area, as the sunshine and views over the landscaped gardens were rather appealing. Sandwiches and cakes were beautifully presented and equally delicious, and there was plenty of tea. Background music was set to a perfect volume level where it didn't intrude on our conversation. Thanks to both the hotel and the staff for a really lovely afternoon.

We have stayed in Best Western before but have not been back in the recent years. BestWestern has changed or is this only true of Best Western in the UK?

Returning to Manchester Airport at the tail end of the snow storms. The M62 was closed so I needed to stay over until it re-opened. Room 401 is a single so small but as long as you are expecting small (I was) it is fine. Almost like a cabin it was just what I needed to last out the storm. Everything was clean and relatively efficient. I have seen a few complaints about breakfast in the reviews but thought it was better (particularly the coffee) than what I was getting in Germany. Can't really fault the place for anyone needing a sleep over near the airport. Certainly got me out of a pickle.

TMoult, Leeds, United Kingdom 06/03/2018

Stayed at the Best Weston Pinewood as this is a hotel that came highly recommended to us by a colleague, who uses this frequently. No issues with the rooms or bar, but my main point was the breakfast. There was three of us sat around a small table, with no room to put anything. The waiter just kept dumping food items wherever he could, regardless of how cramped we were. As for the quality of the food, the Bacon had been cooked at 6am along with the fried eggs. They were still there when we ate at 8! So Bacon jerky and rubber eggs it was. I did ask if there were any fresh items coming, but only got a gruff response, and no fresh items were forthcoming. Coffee was lukewarm, and the toast was warm bread that hadn't been toasted. Other than breakfast, it was a pleasant stay, just not sure if we would stay again.

Peter F, London, United Kingdom 05/03/2018

I stayed for one night due to an early morning flight, we booked a double room with dinner and breakfast through a Groupon deal. The room was clean and everything was fine with no issues, a little noisy at night due to a large party which had been drinking since late afternoon, I believe this was from a funeral, but little anyone could do. The dinner was good, but clearly as it was a groupon deal, the menu and content was paired down to meet the cost, however, the food was well prepared and very good service from the attentive staff. Breakfast was one of the best buffet style breakfasts we had had for some time, quality ingredients, but the preparation and the care of presentation, was excellent, also the serving staff were extremely friendly and very helpful, I could not fault the breakfast or the service from the staff, truly 5* My only comment to management would be over the start time for breakfast, service did not start till 8am on Saturday, with the Hotel clearly used for the nearby Manchester Airport, serious consideration should be given to an earlier breakfast start time ?

Dear Margaret C, Thank you for taking the time to write the review of your recent stay at the Pinewood Hotel. Please rest assured that all of our breakfast food is prepared freshly each morning. Having spoken to the team we are now reviewing the amount of food which is placed on the buffet on the quieter mornings so that it can be replenished more frequently from the kitchen. I do hope that this will resolve the issue and that on your next visit you will find the quality much improved. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind Regards, Hayley

We had 2 rooms double and twin. Both where a good size and clean. Staff where friendly and polite. Booking in and out quick and easy. All you can ask for from a large hotel chain. Didn't eat so can't give any feedback on the food. Would happily go back again

We chose this hotel as a stopover for a flight next day from Manchester. We were lucky to get a Groupon deal that gave us evening dinner and breakfast but putting the extra value aside the hotel impressed us right from the helpful check-in. The interior is nicely decorated in a contemporary style but at a much better level than your average sterile chain. Our room was large and again the decor good and all in good order. We went to the restaurant for evening dinner and were offered two different menus depending on what we wanted to pay. The meal was well presented (on black plates, a bit chefie but fine) and of a good standard. Staff were attentive but not over bearing. As you would expect the drinks menu for wine was a bit pricey but they have to make some money somewhere. Breakfast was equally good with an excellent range of food to set us up for the day. Overall we had an excellent stay which was above our expectations, rooms good, staff good and food good. We will definitely stay again.

"Surprised and disappointed on St Valentine's Day"

derek s, Cheshire, United Kingdom 15/02/2018

I phoned the hotel to ask if they had a St Valentines special on for the restaurant that night, I was told yes they do and it includes a welcoming glass of proseco and a red rose,very nice I thought, do you have any tables left? Yes she said, would you like me to E mail you over the special menu, OK I said, it dualy arrived so at £35.00 each I booked a table for me and my wife. As we don't uasully celebrate this event my wife was delighted with the surprise and was looking forward to the event. Although we only live about 800 meters from this hotel we haven't eaten there for about three years, any way although it was a dreary drissley night we put on our hats and overcoats put up our umberellas and walked there, this should be good. When we arrived and presented our selves at the wait here to be seated sign we were approached by a charming young lady who asked us if we had booked, to which I replied yes we have booked the St Valentine's Day special, with this she showed us to a table, hold on a moment I said do you think we could leave our wet hats, overcoats, and dripping umbrellas some where else, she checked with some one and they were then taken away. We were shown to a table about 2ft x 2ft next to a guy who was working on his laptop or something not Ideal for a romantic dinner, my wife asked if we could sit at a different table more suitable for the occasion and this was agreed to. Once we had settled in we where asked what we would like to drink, I pointed out that I was expecting a welcoming glass of proseco and a red rose for my wife, oh right he said, I had not mentioned this to my wife as I wanted it to be a surprise, so that was ruined wasn't it. So eventually the rose and Proseco arrived and we ordered our starter and main course, what dessert do you want, we don't know my wife said we need to see how we feel after the main course OK they said. Having finished our starter, very quickly, the main course arrived, who is having the steak he said, hold on I said we are supposed to be having a raspberry and vodka sorbet, oh he said like he had no idea what was on the special menue, so he took our food away and eventually came back with the sorbet, it was very nice By this time the fun had gone out of the evening and the rest of the night was just what it was. I think we where probably the only people in the restaurant cellerbrating St Valentine's Day and if the Hotel need advice on how to put on an event like this, this ex pressure washer salesman will point out how it could be made to be special for the customer.

"Mixed feelings - room bad, service good (at times)"

User 09/02/2018

Good: most staff are very pleasant and easy to deal with. Great selection of healthy but also indulgent food for breakfast. Bad: my room (401) was far too small to be comfortable. Seems like they found some extra space at the bottom of a stairwell and made it into a room! Also, the bed felt like sleeping on a bean bag. Pillows were poor. The decor in the room is tired and bordering on chintzy. At breakfast, espresso coffees are not included in the price - really??? Finally, I've never been to a hotel where they offer a laundry service but you need to drop it off at and then collect it from reception.

HayleyLane, General Manager at Best Western Plus Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Rrab M, Thank you for taking the time to write your recent review. I am pleased to see that you enjoyed the service received from the team and the breakfast. Regarding the room I am sorry that you found it to be unsuitable. Room 401 is a single room and thus one of the smallest rooms we have at the hotel. Although the bathroom has recently been upgraded the bedroom is due for a full refurbishment later this year. Thank you for bringing to my attention the issue with the mattress and the pillows. The pillows have been replaced. I am sorry that you found it odd to have to drop your laundry at reception. We offer a same day laundry service via an external cleaning company and in order to receive the laundry back for early afternoon we have to send the laundry out at 8.30am. As this is too early for our housekeepers to be disturbing our guests we request that you bring your laundry to reception or call reception and they will collect it for you. If you are happy to have your laundry returned to you on the following day we are happy for our guests to leave the laundry in the room and housekeeping can collect it after 11am. If you are returning to the area in the future I do hope that you will consider staying with us again and as such a time arises it would be great to meet you. Kind Regards, Hayley

Nice hotel, good clean rooms, food good. Disappointed about the lack of gym or hot tub onsite but they are linked to the biggest in the UK which is 2 miles away.

Use this hotel alot throughout year.. Stayed Saturday 3rd Feb. Found toilet to be dirty after inspection. Toilet overflowed after flush.. Receptionist upgraded us after we reported the toilet issue.. We were grateful to the receptionist. Had a light meal in the bar.. Sandwiches..Beef x 1, Ham x 1. 2 x chips= £20. Bread was poor quality and filling was none discript. During early morning a noise woke us up!!! Not sure if this was from the kitchen. As our bedroom was close/above kitchen!! Such a shame on last nights stay. As this is used frequent for business..

"No onsite parking!"

Bardsey, Leeds 10/01/2018

My friend and I had an early flight to Malta so booked this hotel has it included parking for the duration of our holiday but what it neglected to tell us until we'd paid and got the confirmation email was that parking was not onsite as expected but we had to leave the next morning and drive to the long stay 1 parking at the airport! We set off following the hotel instructions which sent us back on the motorway one junction and to the airport where it said long stay 1 would be signposted - wrong!!! Short stay, medium stay, jet parking all signposted but no long stay so we drove what seemed like miles and couldnt find it - it was after 6am and we needed to check in 2 hours before our flight at 8am - eventually we saw a Ryanair crew member walking along with her case so asked her and she told us that she was asked that every morning by lost travellers and gave us directions. Very difficult to find and also difficult to get a space - we drove round and round and eventually ended up parking at the end of a row that probably wasn't a properly marked bay but we were running out off time. We waited 15 mins for a shuttle bus in the cold until one came! The hotel itself was fine but I'd never stay there again as it isn't an airport hotel it's miles away! I only booked it as it said it was an airport hotel and led us to believe we parked up there! It had a grill next door which didn't open for a couple of hours so as we hadn't eaten since breakfast we had to go find a pub to eat in. Not a good start to the holiday!

Mojoblue717, Manchester,England 27/12/2017

40 members of our Social Groups Walking Section enjoyed a pleasant pre - Xmas evening at this excellent venue. This is the 6th year that we've held this event here, but the first time we've been so close to Xmas day itself; on Sat 23rd December. Surprisingly the venue wasn't as packed as usual, which made it a much more enjoyable evening, with only approx 70 of us in this pleasant function suite. The meal was bog standard Xmas fare, but well presented and quite tasty, served by a quite professional staff. Most members of our group anyway felt that the food was good value, though the drinks a bit pricey...£3.95 for a mainly lemonade Shandy and £5.45 for a small glass of wine.. Evening finished off with a good Disco and a great start to the Xmas Holidays

Dear Mojoblue717, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I am pleased to read that you enjoyed your party night.

Philip W, St Ives, United Kingdom 27/12/2017

We were booked on an early flight from Manchester . so to avoid any chance of a poor journey from home we booked this hotel . The Airport ones were expensive and quite a few wanted to charge you for parking whilst you stayed overnight ,so they were out. When booking our stay at Best Western I thought less than ten minutes to Airport and pretty reasonable tariff . Lots and lots of free parking , WiFi that works and the room was very nice indeed ,big ensuite and comfy beds . Great value Thanks Best Western Plus .

After a very successful Christmas day lunch 2 year's ago my family & I booked for the same experience this year. Sadly we were all very disappointed with the food,very limited choice, poor quality & very amateur presentation.Smoke salmon starter was a 'non starter'. Beef main course mean & tasteless. Turkey dinner bland! Butternut squash tart a joke. No way did the price reflect in what was served up. Redeeming feature good staff, very polite & helpful. No way will we be back.

The room was great and clean with a lovely view over the garden and the bathroom facilities were excellent.

The staff on Reception and in the dining room were all most pleasant and helpful and the food and choice very good.

amp-qld, Noosa, Australia 16/12/2017

I stayed here my last night in the UK due to the easy access to the airport. I arrived at 1.30 pm, hoping to check in a few minutes early as I had an appointment at 2.30 pm. However, I was asked to wait in the lounge which I did. When I went back to reception soon after 2 pm, I got the impression that my room had been ready for some time. It would have been good if someone had come and told me when my room was ready. I found the room somewhat stuffy and oppressive and would have expected a mini fridge in the room in a 4 star hotel. On the other hand, the hotel was good value for money, the staff were friendly, I had a good night's sleep and I made my appointment (just).

It would be better if the fan system in the bathroom would switch off at sometime, an observation not a complaint, unfortunately I was accommodated between storage rooms that were used as linen and towel refreshment storage.

"One night stay"

BuffyRocks, Sheffield, United Kingdom 24/11/2017

We stayed for one night before our flight the next morning. Check in was smooth however when we reached our room found that it was a disabled access room meaning we had no bath and the wet room meant flooding the whole bathroom floor making any further visits to the bathroom very damp under foot. The toilet flush was weak. The room itself was small but annoyingly the radiator had a blue square glowing light directly at eye level when lying in bed which caused discomfort when trying to sleep. We skipped the overpriced breakfast which cost more than in the airport itself but did have an evening meal which I can only call average (the steak in Guinness pie was overly rich so the flavour was heavy and I left half as hard to enjoy). Would I stay here again? Probably not, there are more spacious hotels in the area who will allocate bedrooms with able bodied bathrooms. Perhaps I should have returned to reception to moan about the room when I arrived but it was a one night stay so figured it would be fine at the time until we used it. Lesson learnt.

HayleyLane, General Manager at Best Western Plus Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear BuffyRocks, Thank you for taking the time to write your review of the Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel. I am sorry that you were not happy with the bedroom allocated to you or the food in the evening. It is a requirement of all hotels to have adapted bedrooms available and we take great pride in the fact that ours incorporate the full wet rooms and recommended safety features. Obviously for yourselves these features were not necessary and I am sorry that they made your stay less comfortable. Did you mention this to any members of the team whilst you were at the hotel? If so I am sure that, subject to availability, they would have happily moved you to an alternative room. The Steak and ale pie is a very rich dish and not to everyone's taste. As one of our winter warming dishes it is very popular and I am sorry that it was not to your liking. I do hope that the team offered you an alternative meal. Please rest assured that we take all feedback into account at our team meetings and we will be looking at the issues you have raised in order to improve our service for future guests. Should you return to the Pinewood in the future please do not hesitate to contact me directly and it would be great to receive your feedback in person, on what I hope will be a much more enjoyable visit. Kind Regards, Hayley

Stayed here in August 2017 before an early morning flight Didn't see much of the hotel but the room was clean and bed very comofrtable. Hotel bar was chilled and staff were friendly. Good distance and travel routes to the airport so this is ideal for anyone looking for a nights sleep before/after a flight at Manchester AIrport The only slight issue was that when we first went to our room, a wet towel on the floor was holding the door open which seemed rather odd. Obviously we just moved this to one side but didn't give the greatest initial impression.

Dear Luke H, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay and found the team to be friendly.

Often housekeeping leave a towel on the door handle to signal that they are still cleaning the room or that it is ready to be checked by a supervisor. From your comment regarding the cleanliness I believe that it was probably the latter on this occasion. Sincere apologies for this. I do hope that this will not deter you from returning to the hotel in the future and I look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind Regards, Hayley

Spent a Saturday night after a family function. Got back to the hotel to find a party going on past midnight. Wasn't told when booking, had to wait over an hour to go to bed. Went to reception, was told we should have been told when booking and there was nothing they could do as hotel was full. If you get a room on the second floor at the weekend, expect to be kept up! The rooms are dated and not to the plus level I'd expect of a Best Western. Much more like any generic dump half the price. Pretty scummy place with bare plaster on some walls and worn carpet. Avoid if possible.

Dear Stephen F, Thank you for taking the time to write your review after your recent stay. It is disappointing to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us and I would like the opportunity to speak to you further about the issues raised. We regularly host events at the hotel and all entertainment finishes at 1am. However guests that are not attending the events are allocated as far away as possible. Please could you contact me directly via Hayley.Lane@Pinewood-hotel.co.uk so that I can ascertain the date of your stay and the room that you were allocated in order to investigate further. Kind Regards, Hayley

Hotel was easy to find and in a good location. Hotel very nice looking with a nice garden area loads of parking. Our room was fine although we had two single beds and the room got so hot we had to have the fan on all night after unsuccessfully trying to turn down the heating as the radiators weren't even on...very strange. Bathroom ok quite small but good shower and nice bath - a bit high to get in and out of and bath mats would be an idea - I read in the welcome brochure that they are available at reception but would be easy enough to provide for the convenience of guests. Enough towels and an iron with ironing board too. Television was small but had Freeview channels. Didn't order room service as the food seemed very expensive with £5 just for brining it on a tray - dominoes delivery was a lot cheaper ???? I would recommend this hotel and probably would return again ??

Dear Elen M, Thank you for taking the time to review the Best Western Pinewood Hotel. All feedback is reviewed with the team in order for us to improve the facilities and service that we offer. I am sorry that you found your bedroom to be too warm, it would be great if you could make contact to let me know the room number and then we can investigate this and rectify the issue. We have recently introduced a new menu in the restaurant and lounge called "Something Simple" which should help with the costs of room service. This menu is designed to change on a daily basis which is why we cannot display it in the rooms. The menu offers two courses for £20 and 3 courses for £25 and is based on the daily fresh produce available from our local suppliers. I am pleased to hear that you would return and it would be great to hear your feedback on the new menu's at that time. Kind Regards, Hayley

Andrew P, Norwich, United Kingdom 03/11/2017

Booked 2 rooms here in October. Travelled as a family of four and stayed for one night. We enjoy the extra space of having two rooms - my son and I in one room, my wife and our 2 year old in the other. This only works well if the price is right, but this hotel was no more (maybe less) than similarly located Premier/Holiday Inns and the standard probably a bit better. Here are a few of my thoughts - 1. Location: we were visiting relatives in South Manchester (Fallowfield) and the hotel was around a 10 minute drive when the traffic was quiet. On the Sunday night we stayed we could have chosen virtually any hotel in the city but opted for the less-hassle option of heading away from the city and parking more easily. In this respect we were not disappointed - road links are good and the car parking seemed plentiful. 2.Service - cannot fault anybody who we met during the stay - check in was polite and efficient. Initially we had rooms on different floors but this was changed swiftly enough when requested. 3. Quality of rooms - I get the impression from the website and other reviews that some rooms are really impressive. My wife stayed in an executive double room and was happy enough. I found the room a little lacking in space and was glad to get to the other room we booked. I'm not sure what this room was - I'm sure we originally booked a double and 2 single bedded family room as our second room but this room had a double and one single. Obviously we changed our room on checking in so I was not going to query this. In any case, this room seemed much more spacious, the bathroom was bigger, it had dual aspect windows being on the corner of the building. Overall, I was quite happy spending time in this room. We also ordered room service, which seemed fine. Wifi worked fine. Everything about the stay was more than adequate. For me, a comfortable 4/5, possibly deserving a bit more though the double room just underwhelmed me a little. Although I'd be happy to visit again, it's not one of those hotels which wowed me and left me wanting to return.

Dear Andrew P, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review of your recent stay at the Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel. I am pleased to see that overall you enjoyed your stay and have shared your feedback with the team. All feedback is important to us as it is the best way of us focusing on the areas that most need our attention in order to improve both our facilities and our service. As you noted from the rooms they are all quite unique and there is quite a large difference between our standard and executive rooms. I have now had the opportunity to revisit a number of the double rooms and we have begun to implement a number of upgrades to the décor and facilities within them. I do hope that if you visit again you will approve of the changes and it would be great to hear your feedback on them. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future. Kind Regards, Hayley Lane

Stayed for one night before traveling to the airport .The hotel was pleasant disappointed that access to the leisure complex was by car due it being in Wilmslow. The food was good both in the bar and at breakfast . The staff were excellent and very skilled. Taxi service to the airport was efficient and a reasonable price. It was a good experience but do not think we would go again as there was nothing we could identify as “ special “

Stayed for one night and upgraded to Superior room. Stunning! Super king bed with sofa, armchair and coffee table. Bathroom was huge and beautiful. Large bath, large shower, fluffy towels. Perfect. Towelling robes and slippers provided. Fresh ground coffee and cafetiere. All immaculate. Ate in lounge bar - food was excellent and we'll presented. Breakfast was buffet-style. Food was hot and there was a good choice. Staff very pleasant and attentive.

I stayed at the Best Western Wilmslow Pinewood for one night, a Saturday night, for a work related trip. The day before I arrived I had a phonecall from reception to see if there were any specific queries or requirements I wished to run by them - a lovely, proactive touch. Nice. I needed an iron and ironing board and these were in my room when I arrived. When I checked in, the reception staff were really welcoming and efficient. No queue either. I was in a rush to get to my work appointment, so asked if someone could help me unload my car, which they did, and kindly took my things to my room. I was so grateful as this helped me to stay on time for an extremely important appointment! Spacious double room, everything I needed. Biscuits were particularly good! 40 inch TV. Clearly this room had been refurbished, probably within the last 18 months. The bed was lovely and comfortable, plenty of pillows, 2 soft, 2 firm. Loads of towels, good spacious shower, high quality modern fixtures (throughout). Decent quality shampoo etc. Only issue was the volume of the party in the function rooms downstairs. It would have been appropriate and (I hope) understood by the party goers, if the music was turned down after, say 10pm, but it went on until 1am. This didn't affect me tremendously; perhaps I was just tired, but I do see there being some lack of consideration here. I would't be surprised if other guests complained. Decent stay, nice quality, affordable hotel.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night on 20th September prior to flying out to visit friends in USA . I booked some months prior and a few weeks before our visit I checked out the recent reviews (some of which were far from complimentery) so I was a little apprehensive - I didnt need to be - dont believe those negative reviews - this is an excellent hotel , good food , attentive staff , and yes they DO help you with a taxi to the airport. We had an excellent and trouble free stay

"Modern Hotel"

CheshireReviewer, Wilmslow, UK 11/10/2017

Having once lived in the area we returned for 3 nights to visit family. The room was modern, good wi fi, no bottled water and a bit stuffy. The room could do with better storage eg hooks by the door for coats, drawers in bedside tables and dressing table would be useful. It had a huge TV!! I know this is used by people travelling to and from the airport - hence the crowded carpark which we just managed to squeeze into. Breakfast was extra and as we don't usually eat this meal it wasn't a problem but this made the room rate a little more expensive. The bar area seemed to be frequented by a few local drunks - though not causing trouble it did bring the quality down a bit. I don't think this hotel caters for visitors of more than one night - they seem to be concentrating on the airport park and ride customers which is a bit of a detriment to others. The disco was quite loud too but it did end fairly early for a Sat night.

HayleyLane, General Manager at Best Western Plus Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Cheshire Reviewer, Thank you for taking the time to complete your review of the Best Western Pinewood Hotel. I have only recently joined the property and all guest feedback is invaluable. I have now been around a number of rooms with our Head Housekeeper and Maintenance Manager and we have actioned several measures as a result of your feedback. Although most rooms have draws in the bedside tables the ones that do not will soon have shelves. All rooms are having coat hooks added to the back of the bedroom doors in addition to the hooks on the bathroom doors. We are looking to relocate some bedroom mirrors above desks so that they can be used as dressing tables. Regarding the car park we do offer a stay, park and fly service and will now be enforcing that guests using this facility park in the over flow car park rather than the main car park. I am sorry that the disco from the wedding disturbed you however this is why we have the strict rules that music stops at midnight. We are a popular wedding venue and this may also be why most guests appeared only to be in for one night as they were attending the function. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay on the whole and thank you that your feedback has allowed us to make improvements for future guests. Kind Regards, Hayley

hotelinspectors2, Derby, United Kingdom 06/10/2017

We stayed here in 2016 as it was much better value than the local budget hotel's and more convenient for the airport and parking. We decided to stay again in June this year before flying to Jamaica the main reason for staying here is there park and fly deal works out better value than the local budget hotels and airport parking, due to the hotel organising free transfers to and from the hotel I find this makes for a good start and end to the holiday. ARRIVAL / CHECK IN Parking in the long stay car park around the back of the hotel there was plenty of spaces available. The check in girl was very friendly and helpful telling us every thing we needed to know and arranging our taxi transfer for the following morning to the airport. THE ROOM The hotel called a few days before we were due to arrive and said all standard doubles were sold out and would we like and executive double at just £10 extra we decided to go for this. The executive double was a very good size room for 2 people the room was very clean and tidy with all the amenities you would expect from a hotel like this. THE BATHROOM the bathroom again a good size and very clean, I did notice some areas looking tired in the bathroom and some one seems to have gone mad with the sealant every were. The bed was very comfortable and we both got a good nights sleep. RESTURANT AND BAR We booked a table at the restaurant for the evening, being honest there was no need as it was dead only two other couples in there. PARK AND FLY the hotel has a separate car park for park and fly customers around the back of the hotel, plenty of spaces available, due to the over booking at T2 car park at Manchester airport we didn't want to take the risk and the price for the room and car parking was less than 1 weeks car parking at T2 great value for money from this hotel. to say how dead the restaurant was the service was quite slow and the staff not overly friendly or talkative. the food was ok but nothing special at all, the price as to be expected for this area was high. Generally a ok meal but nothing to write home about. the bar was very busy that night with a group of people who had far to much to drink they were being very loud and causing a nuisance. In my last review I mentioned the taxi drivers were very impolite and unfriendly this time round both taxi drivers were very good. We are looking to book soon of our 2018 holiday.

Dear hotelinspectors2, Thank you for taking the time to complete your review of the Best Western Pinewood Hotel.

With regards to the restaurant we have now introduced a new, lower priced menu in addition to our existing menu's so that we can cater for all tastes. The new menu is called "Something simple" and is just as it says, simple, honest, homely food at a good price. When accompanied by the rosette awarded 180 and seasons menu we are confident that both the quality and service provided by our food and beverage teams will impress you on your next visit. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind Regards, Hayley

We were using this hotel in readiness for an early flight the next morning, so we wanted peace and quiet and a good nights sleep, and we got it! We had a refurbed room on level three which was lovely. Could not fault the hotel at all, and would recommend the early bird deal at the Italian down the road.

I was lucky to be able to attend a special tasting menu event at restaurant one eighty recently. Well, what an experience! The restaurant has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, the staff are attentive and professional and the food is amazing. The flavours and presentation of the dishes was exceptional, can't think of 1 thing to fault. This was my 3rd visit to this restaurant and definitely won't be last. Special thanks to the chef for such a special meal.

Viktorija A, Southampton, United Kingdom 01/10/2017

Visited the hotel on 01/10. I was checking in quite late, therefore emailed the hotel to notify them not to put me into no show. Got a very quick answer that they do not resell the rooms after certain time. Which is a very good thing! Check in was very quick. Receptionists organized me a wake up call, taxi, invoice for the morning and even a lighter. Rooms are very clean, however the only minus no bottled water in the rooms. Great service from Will, couldn't catch the name of the other receptionist. I would recommend this hotel and looking forward to come back again in a week!

Went for a family funeral so not the best of visits. Was told we would have a discount on room because of the funeral tea being held there. No discount because we booked through Booking.com. even though we were told it could be sorted out at the hotel. Not a helpful receptionist at all. We had a meal (9 if us) in the restaurant booked for 7.15pm....the menu should read...what we have left!! A joke at that time in the evening. The food was terrible and the chef should be sacked. Cannot fault the other staff who were fighting a losing cause and were commendable, esp. the lady who was there in the evening/morning and afternoon. For the money paid it was terrible and we would not stay or recommend it to anyone.

Stopped here for one night as en-route to Manchester Airport the following morning. Upon arrival staff were extremely friendly, curtious and helpful, the process to our room booking to transfer to the airport the following morning was excellent. The hotel has had a recent refurb since we last stayed there and must say the rooms are excellent, lovely colours and a warm comfortable feel to them, so spotless ... would definitely recommend and certainly stay there again when travelling. Well done all... keep up the good work..

As we live an hour or so from the airport we decided to stay the night before so not to get caught out in the traffic. We arrived during darkness and rain so we didn't have much chance to see the outside of the hotel but it looked nice. We had a nice room which had everything we needed. We had a couple of drinks in the bar and had a snack from the bar menu. The hotel was very quiet but it was a Sunday night. In the morning even allowing for roadworks it was an easy drive to Manchester airport. We would definitely use the hotel again for early flights. Easy check in/out No problems at all.

svedros, San Francisco 11/09/2017

This hotel bills itself as an airport hotel, and although the hotel is close to the airport, the hotel does not offer a shuttle. Expect to pay 26 GBP (!) roundtrip. The hotel staff also refused to help me book the taxi, so I had to do that myself over Skype while abroad, and their recommended taxi service was not organized or efficient, so it was a scramble to get to the hotel. When I arrived, I discovered that my room was up several flights of stairs (hotel desk staff did not offer to help me with my luggage, I had to ask). I was in a single room, which was clean and comfortable, however the very loud noise of water rushing through the plumbing system kept me awake. All in all, this was a disappointment despite the Best Western brand.

Brian M, Settle, United Kingdom 11/09/2017

My wife and I were unfortunate enough to stay one Saturday evening. We should have anticipated trouble after having been served the worst lunch ever, but not wanting to start our travels on a bad note, let it lie. We went shopping for the afternoon and returned to the hotel around 8 pm. OMG....ten feet from reception was a reception room with the door open and music vibrating the building. We couldn't even communicate with the staff to ask how long the music would be going on for it was so loud. Grim face we went to our room on the first floor above reception. Needless to say the floor was vibrating. As we were getting up for an early flight I decided to talk to the duty manager and find out when the madness would stop. It was going to be 11 pm for the live music to finish and midnight for the DJ's music to finish. We went to look at another room on the second floor which was no better, in fact a little worse than the room we were already in. It was now 10 pm and we had little option but to face a sleepless night. We insisted on a refund, which we received, however faced a 14 hour flight tired and worn out. NEVER AGAIN......

We booked the park stay and fly package direct with the hotel as I couldn't find anything suitable on the usual holiday extras websites. What a great find! The whole experience from getting a phone call from the hotel prior to our stay to check if we wanted restaurant reservations to the complimentary taxi to and from the airport made a stress free start and end to our trip. All the staff were extremely pleasant, our room looked like it had been recently refurbished as everything was new, clean and modern. but the best part was dining in the hotel. The food was amazing. The chef really knows his stuff. Far better than the usual airport hotels. Will definitely be staying here again next time we fly from Manchester.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a executive room. Lovely hotel in a quite suburban area outside of Manchester, massive, comfortable bed in a good sized room. We had a nice view of the gardens at the back of the hotel. Room & bathroom clean & well maintained with complimentary toiletries. Good selection at the buffet style breakfast with tea, coffee & toast brought to your table, no waiting for those awful toast machines that either give you burnt offerings or warm bread. All staff we encountered were friendly and very helpful, even on checkout on the Sunday morning when we asked if it was OK to leave the car in their car park so we could have another day out in Manchester we were told no problem. The train station is a good 10 minute walk away with direct line to Manchester picadilly station. There are lots of places to eat out near the hotel although we didn't try any as we spent most of our time in the city. Would stay here again.

"Lovely hotel but far too hot!!"

User 12/08/2017

I have stayed here approx six times now on business. This hotel is very close to Manchester Airport which is good if you are travelling. The rooms are quite spacious with full tea and coffee facilities. Good selection at breakfast time too, staff are very friendly and more than helpful. Conference facilities are basic but they have coffee and tea on tap! The only drawback for me is that the rooms are very very hot it gets very warm at night, the window can be opened but there's very little air can get in. I have been offered a fan but it makes little difference and is noisy!!

"Close to the airport parking but rather crowded that weekend"

silverfeet, Southampton 05/08/2017

We arrived early and although we couldn't check in we were invited to sit in the lounge and buy coffee at the bar after we parked our car. We had arrived on a weekend of car clubs gets together. The foyer was filled with one lot leaving and another arriving and some, apparently, staying on. Oh, and there was the party for a 3year old girl - lots of shrieking, music and a booming PA system talking them trough party games. Time to check in, band on 2-00pm and a long wait for the lift to the 1st floor - lots of holiday cases, too heavy to walk up stairs. We got to our floor and found it full of enormous dirty linen containers and lists of busy staff. Unsurprisingly or room was on the others side of them. A well equipped room and good bathroom but out luggage took up a lot of the floor space and it was somewhat of an obstacle course to get from one side of the bed to the bathroom. Returning back downstairs to explore we again had a long wait for the lift, when it arrived it was full of dirty laundry containers and staff. We walked down. I'm sure this hotel is usually less disorganised but I was glad we decided to not have breakfast but leave early for the airport.

"Nice hotel, close to the airport"

ajt_austria, Wolfsberg, Austria 01/08/2017

This hotel proved to be a good price for a hotel so close to the airport.Reception and staff were friendly, the hotel clean and the room comfortable. It's everything you'd expect from a Best Western. The hotel has plenty of outdoor free-parking.Cost of a taxi into Manchester centre was approx £25 and £18 with Uber (off-peak). Nice choice if you need a good hotel close to the airport.

User 24/07/2017

I stay here occasionally when we have a family gathering and we need to stay over. The rooms are always clean and the service good. Last time I stayed however the breakfast wasn't great. Everything was a bit over cooked and not that hot. The last time we stayed was for a family birthday. We stopped in at the bar for a last drink and the barman was a bit abrupt and slow. Also £22 for three drinks on my bill the next morning was a bit of an unpleasant surprise.

Sian H, Wisbech, United Kingdom 20/07/2017

The staff were particularly helpful. We had booked a room 'without stairs' for our elderly mother who had difficulty with mobility. When we arrived we found all rooms only accessible by lift and her room unsuitable as it had a bath not shower! We should have specified disable access. The staff scoured suitable rooms to change. The hotel was totally full making this difficult, however they did manage a room swap and upgraded our mother.

Nice hotel, but lacking in friendy service. Everyone (except the bar staff) seemed distant and made you feel inferior (I am an owner of 3 successful business'), and care deeply for MY staff. Do not expect late check out without cost, period. No shuttle to airport (Taxi only). Restaurant nice but unpretentious.

Stayed her last year before our flight, had the superior room which was fantastic, full on comfort, enjoyed it so much we are returning this year before my special birthday trip to Italy, and bringing the kids, again superior rooms. Thanks to all the staff who were so helpful, and made the start to our holiday a very enjoyable one. We had our evening meal here also, which was quite good value, and really nice. The hotel is only a short drive to the airport , and in a good area. Thanks again guys see you on 31st august .

Greeted at 3am, with pleasant smile and offer to help with luggage. The room was beautifully decorated, very restful pale and deep greens. Immaculately clean and bed soooo comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, cooked my egg on request to perfection, all the staff were so helpful, even the young man on work experience. Can't mention just one name, all staff were so pleasant.

justmybit, San Antonio, Texas 12/07/2017

Very quiet hotel, far from the train station, but closer to the airport. We booked it thinking it might have a shuttle, but no such luck. The room was a good size, but with twin beds and no air conditioning. Although, it was cool outside, it was a bit stifling in the room and the window did not open all the way. The staff was very helpful and the hotel was very clean. A good place to stay if you don't mind catching a cab to the airport.

Ideal hotel for Manchester city centre or the airport. Rooms clean and tidy, great breakfast lots of choice and large free carpark. Wifi good speed and lifts to floors which is helpful with a pushchair. Can be a bit pricey but is worth it for standard you receive.

mandihorwood, Cheltenham, United Kingdom 11/07/2017

Stayed here mainly to take advantage of the park and fly offer. Sounds great and worked well from the hotel to the airport. The room itself was adequate for our needs. However, although we followed the instructions for the taxi pick up on return and having been told one would be there in 10 minutes, it was actually an hour of standing by the information board and several calls before the taxi arrived. We complained to the reception manager who sympathized and offered a cup of tea but frankly the cost of the taxi at least should have been refunded. Poor service with no explanation as to the delay. Will not use thus hotel again.

User 04/07/2017

The room was very small with very poor amenities. Did not have a fridge which I required to put my medicine in. This room had very little space to move around and storage of our luggage was very limited. Where we were accommodated was very noisy and every time a guest open the fire door it was very loud. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Disappointing and noisy."

Stanhope10, Kent, England 01/07/2017

Booked two nights in an executive room as this was advertised as being 'more spacious' than the standard room. I would not describe our room as spacious at all, it was on the smaller than average size for a hotel room, I have stayed in Premier Inns with bigger rooms. It was also a bit dark and the decor and furnishings were in need of a complete make over as it was very dated. However the biggest problem was how noisy the room was. We could hear every conversation of people in the hallway and unfortunately hear explicitly everyone's visit to the toilet and bathroom in adjoining rooms. There were a couple of functions in the hotel on the Friday night which went on till 1am with loud music which kept us awake. Our room was immediately above the function room and bar. Unfortunately we were not advised when checking in that functions were happening which is usual practice. The bar and restaurant were very pleasant and staff very friendly, we had a snack in the bar which was very good. Breakfast was ok . The cooked food was very good but the rest of the selections pastries, yogurts, fresh fruit exc. left a bit to be desired. Looked dry, and very little choice. When we checked out we mentioned the above to a member of staff. She advised that our room (110) was one of the quieter rooms. Not sure how! Bearing in mind that this is a BW plus, we would consider staying here again.

We have just spent three nights at the lovely hotel. Couldnt fault the staff or service. My partner was doing the 10k run in manchester. So only a short train ride away from hotel. The only problem was that the noise and bad language from a guest attending a wedding at the hotel was quite bad. It carried on till early hours of the morning . When we told reception staff the following morning they did appologise and said they had a wedding party in the next night too and it shouldnt be too bad ..... although still noisy there wasnt any foul language ..

Liz C, Perth, Australia 23/05/2017

Checked in by a pleasant member of staff who arranged for help with our bags, although no trolley's are available perhaps that is something to look at in the future. The room was clean with a queen bed but the window is security wired so will only open a few inches and as there isn't any AC that might be problematic if we get a good summer in Manchester! We booked an evening meal which was nice with plenty of choices for food and drink, after a rested night sleep ( I would ask for a room at the back next time away from the traffic noise, not excessive but nevertheless) we had a buffet breakfast which was freshly cooked and my husband assures me the coffee was really good, check out went just as smoothly and again we were helped with our bags, it is just a short drive to Manchester airport so we arrived refreshed and relaxed.

I stayed here for a night a few weeks ago. The location is very convenient for Manchester Airport, and is a half hour drive from the city. There's local shops and restaurants within walking distance in the village. The receptionists were all really friendly and check in was very quick. My 1st floor room was a little on the small side but was fine for a night. It was well decorated and had plenty of desk and storage space. The bed was comfortable and the ensuite was clean. The bar is reasonably priced, the staff are friendly and the garden is a lovely peaceful place to relax with a drink in the evening. Overall a pleasant stay- I'd happily return if need be (which I'm sure it will!) and the would definitely recommend this BW for a stopover.

Errol789, Lancaster, United Kingdom 14/05/2017

Attended a wedding at this hotel Friday and Saturday night. We arrived on Friday evening and on booking in at reception were told they had an event on. Our room was on the 2nd floor 2 floors up from the event so we would not be disturbed by noise. If the reception staff believe this to be true they must never have stayed in any of their rooms. The noise from the ,event, finally stopped at 1.15 am. That was the time we actually managed to get some sleep. Unfortunately the experience was repeated on the Saturday. We were even further away from the disco but it did not stop the constant drumming. I can only assume that when the rooms were added to the hotel there was inadequate insulation and soundproofing installed. It may be ok midweek but if you are booking with a view to staying prior to a flight from Manchester Airport I strongly advise you enquire if they have any events on that particular evening.

Pete H, Washington, United Kingdom 13/05/2017

Lots of parking & a warm welcome on arrival. We were advised at check-in of a function that was taking place in the evening, but the receptionist said as we were on the 3rd floor it shouldn't affect us too much. We went out for an evening meal & returned around 21:00 to find the function in full swing. After going up to our room we found it was too warm (it had been a sunny day) so we opened the window. This unfortunately meant we could hear the loud music from the function. So we were left with a dilemma. Have the window open & be unable to sleep because of the noise, or have the window closed & be unable to sleep because the room was too warm. We decided to leave the window open. But we did not expect the function to continue until 02:00! Breakfast was good, but all in all, we did not enjoy our stay as we were unable to sleep. This spoilt what would otherwise be a lovely hotel. We do not plan to return, and based on our experience we will not be recommending this hotel.

User 12/05/2017

This is the second time i have stayed for business . Yuck yuck yuck. Customer service is non existent . I was put in a twin room that was approximately 10 foot by 10 foot . No air con and no opening window . It was a sauna . I asked to chane rooms that one that had adequate ventilation and was told they were all booked up except for one above a function until 1/2 am . I advised I wasn't here for work and needed to sleep and was told tough luck. At 130 pounds for two nights with no breakfast it's too much to ask for sleep. How is this even adequate h&s when the window is locked shut and can't be opens until 8 am , and no air con in a box room which is without exaggeration a sauna . I have pre hooked pinewood best western for several Months stay and will be looking at cancelling . Whatever you do I sincerely advise you don't stay here .. you may be lucky to get one of the rooms that has been done up and has a window or you may not . Apart from that customer services that says at 10pm tough luck is way outnofmoreer !

I took it upon myself to check the bedroom today after receiving your comments, Saturday 13th May. The bedroom is in very good order and the sash window opens a good distance to let fresh air in. Unfortunately we do not have air-conditioning in the guest bedrooms, however we do provide a fan upon request.

janemac, Isle of Man, United Kingdom 10/05/2017

We stayed here for one night before flying from Manchester on holiday. We would normally stay on the airport but so glad we didn't. This hotel is an absolute gem! We had a fabulous double aspect bedroom in the old part of the building looking out onto the lovely gardens. Our two course evening meal was perfection but wine a little over priced. Breakfast was equally good and the dining room also looks out over the garden. Friendly and helpful staff who made us feel very welcome. We will certainly stay here again next time we travel through Manchester...well worth the extra taxi fare to get here. We feel like we started the holiday from the moment we arrived in the hotel!

Stayed one night here before a flight from Manchester Airport. Booked in for Room Only plus taxi to the airport (15 mins. drive) and back again a week later to retrieve our car. Taxi service very efficient. We had dinner at the hotel. The food was good. Wine fine too, but expensive, but this is par for the course at airport hotels. Our room was fine, but the radiator was horribly noisy and warm, despite being turned off (it was a warm night). I phoned Reception and a member of staff arrived within five minutes. She said she didn't have anyone on site to deal with the fault, but she would move us to another room on the same floor, if that was OK? We were fine with that and the room happened to be an executive room at no extra charge. The member of staff was very helpful and we were impressed with the customer service.

"Our wedding"

We had our wedding breakfast and evening celebration at The Pinewood on Wilmslow on 30th April 2017. From the first time we went to view the hotel until we booked out we were met with the utmost politeness and professionalism. The staff made our celebration an amazing event by the manner and helpfulness. Our guests stayed over and joined us at breakfast and again the staff were truly helpful. The room for our celebration was beautifully presented and we were able to leave everything to them, leaving us free to party.

"Should have been 5* but let them selves down badly "

Working in Wilmslow for 4 nights so based on reviews, this was one of the places to stay, so I did. Everything was as on the box described, ate in the restaurant very deserved of the 2 rosettes. Wifi great, room decor all good shower pressure could be a bit more stronger for me, but that's just me, all in all a great experience so far. Then Saturday afternoon /night arrives and then it went to s##t. Firstly after working a particularly hard day, was having a quick snooze in the Arvo and off goes the fire alarm, not once twice, 3times and more. In the end, I rang reception and was given an explanation that there was an issue with the ventilation, that's it. My issue is why, didn't the hotel let the guests know via public address system, what was going on instead of me having to ring and find out, the guest across the way, got out the shower ventured into the hallway to find out what was going on, very un professional on all accounts and certainly not the best health and safety practices. This leads on to the highlight of my visit, whilst I fully understand that your venue caters for weddings/events, I can't for the life of me understand why paying customers, and you certainly are not the cheapest option in the area, need to be subjected to hoards of pissed up wedding guest marauding through the hotel, shoe less in a lot of the case, imagine if I had done that on a non wedding night, basically making it like a Friday night in Blackpool. Some one actually spewed up in front of the lift. The noise kept me awake till past 1am, and your answer, two a4 sheets, blue tacced, with a request to try and keep the noise down as guests might trying to sleep Well done chaps, it didn't work and lastly to top it all off, somebody scrapped the side of my van, I'm assuming pissed up trying to get out, but I'm only guessing but a pretty good guess I'm betting. What started as a great visit become a truely awful experience.

John S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest My sincerest apologies in regards to your recent experience at the Hotel. It is disappointing to say the least that you suffered from noise disturbance from the Wedding guests and the inconvenience of the fire alarm sounding on several occasions. We eliminated as quickly as possible the reason for the fire alarm sounding which was due to the amount of heat being generated from a candy floss machine in one of my function rooms. Unfortunately the fire alarm wont reset until the detector heads are clear of an disturbance hence why the alarm sounded on several occasions. We did silence the alarms as soon as possible so not to cause to much disruption. On busy nights we do put quiet signs on the corridor doors and in the lift to encourage guests to be mindful of other guests sleeping. My apologies that your Van was damaged in the Hotel carpark, very disappointing I must say and unacceptable. Please do contact me at the Hotel to discuss your concerns in more detail, my contact number is 01625 529211. My apologies again for your disappointing experience. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards John Scott General Manager

If your looking for an airport stop over dont bother with the horrible overpriced hotels round the airport stay here. Lovely tranquil setting, absolutely spotless room, comfortable and modern. Nice well Lovely grounds, this is a really great example of hotel that the owners take a real pride in looking after. Great staff. Only 5 mins to the airport. Nice area with local shops and pubs. Plenty of free parking. Highly recommended.

Loved this hotel, I booked a superior room with balcony -it was gorgeous! Thoughtfully furnished and stylishly decorated. I had the best nights sleep in the king sized bed. I will be a regular whenever I'm in the area on business! Super standards thank you!

Tony S, Newcastle upon Tyne, England, United Kingdom 25/04/2017

Booked in for a night while attending an event in Manchester. Got to the hotel late in the evening and car park was very busy but lucky its also on the large side so this wasn't an issue. Check in was quick and easy as we had pre-paid. Room was on the 3rd floor and was very nice, clean and tidy. The only small issue was the bathroom was a little too small no bath just a shower (a bath would have not fitted in). However saying that the room was quiet and comfy. Breakfast was nice, lovely sausages and quick service. Overall would happily stay here again, Very nice hotel!

Sara232323, Cumbria, United Kingdom 20/04/2017

I booked a superior room as I knew our flight would get in late and this hotel looked good and was handy for the airport/our parking. It was our first trip abroad, just the two of us since our honeymoon 20 years earlier and i wanted somewhere nice. The room was lovely and spacious with fruit and bottled water, lovely comfy bed and well fitted bathroom. The cooked breakfast was really tasty, but I have to mention the granola bar where you could mix your own cereal - finally no dried fruit (made me happy anyway). Great staff, clean and comfortable room and lovely food. Finished our short break off perfectly. We've booked again for this year (with the kids this time, wish us luck). Looking forward to another visit.

"Great loction for luxury travellers"

DanCarmody, Doncaster, United Kingdom 20/04/2017

Me and my girlfriend stayed at this well-situated hotel prior to our flight out to Sicily in July. It's ideal location to the airport, scenic gardens and luxurious, countryside-esque presentation made it a top choice when choosing our pre-flight slumber destination. Being in early holiday mode, we made excessive use of the bar (be warned - bit of a toll on the wallet). The bar area was a very relaxing and friendly environment, consisting of leather sofas and televisions showing live sports. An extensive range of drinks and bar food is also available However, as we were on the liquid tea menu, I couldn't comment on the standard of food. Please note, the reception and bar area were quite rowdy due to a wedding currently taking place (a regular occurrence I'm led to believe). However, if you are wanting a quiet evening, do not let this put you off, you cant hear anything once on the above floors where the rooms are. Following a good skinful and a stagger to the local village for a kebab we retired to the room to get some sleep. The rooms were above-average standard, complete with comfy beds, regular amenities and a pleasant, clean bathroom. If you are wanting a luxury stay ahead of jetting off to a holiday destination, this is definitely worth considering.

"Noisy by the lift"

leannec1984, Leeds, United Kingdom 19/04/2017

We decided to stay here as it was half the price of on airport hotels. Everything was fine with the hotel, the room was comfortable and it wasn't too expensive to get to the airport the following morning. The main issue was that we were in the room next to the lift. Every time the lift arrived it made a loud 'ping' which went on throughout the night. Another issue was that people getting in and out of the lift throughout the night at 1am, 2am, 3am etc. didn't seem to have any awareness of the locality of the bedrooms to it so chatted away at quite a volume. In a normal hotel this probably wouldn't be quite as much of an issue but with this being near the airport people are coming and going at all hours. We had to be up at 4am to get our flight and I felt like I had an hours sleep in total. So overall, I'd recommend this hotel if you want a cheaper night before you fly but if you get to your room and its next to the lift it might be a wise idea to ask to move.

Just back from one night stop over here and have to say had a fab time. The hotel is lovely and spotlessly clean and the gardens are beautiful and lovely to sit in and relax. I didn't eat in hotel but chatting to others there they said the food was very good. If you fancy heading out to eat can recommend the Bulls Head had a wonderful meal here and staff were great. It is only about a 10/15 minute walk from hotel. Will definitely stay here again

"Bargain offer"

Achnacloich, Copthorne, United Kingdom 16/04/2017

I stayed at the Pinewood when in Manchester on business primarily because they were running a special Easter offer of bed and breakfast making this hotel the most competitive in the area. Hotel is close to Manchester airport and the centre of Handforth with its restaurants and shops. There is a large car park and plenty of spaces though those on the far side of the garden require quite a walk to reception. When I arrived I was warmly welcomed and quickly checked in. The reception staff were very friendly and ensured that I was made aware of the busy periods in the restaurant and where all facilities were located. I was allocated an “accessible” room on the third floor that had been recently refurbished. The room was clean and bright with a large double bed covered in the now obligatory array of cushions. The bed was very comfortable with a firm mattress and soft pillows. All the usual facilities for tea and coffee making were provided plus some very nice shortbread biscuits. An iron, and ironing board were tucked away in the wardrobe. Due to the large “accessible shower room with wet area the room was smaller than normal and with the table and armchair a little cramped. There is no air conditioning and heating is from a very effisient electric heater though the control panel is so bright it acts as a night light if left switched on. The shower room was vast with a large wet area for the shower. It was brightly lit with excellent lighting over the mirror and a plentiful supply of toiletries. Towels were large, fluffy and soft. The shower was very inefficient with very low water pressure. Not the best to rinse away the nightime cobwebs. Breakfast was served in the restaurant and for once no issues with toasters as toast and tea or coffee is prepared and brought to your table. However it does mean coffee lovers cannot have the variety that is available from self service machines. There was a good selection of fruits, Kellogs mini pack cereals, fruit juices and cold meats on the buffet. The cooked breakfast was limited to bacon, sausage, egg, saute potato, beans, tomato and mushroom. Scrambled and poached eggs were also on offer. Throughout breakfast the staff were very efficient, quickly clearing away empty plates and offering more toast, tea or coffee. Overall this was a good value stay, though at normal rates there is better value to be found in other local chains. Would I stay again, absolutely as at these rates it is great value, but at normal full price perhaps not.

User 12/04/2017

Clean, spacious rooms, although lacking a bath if that's important to you. Large TV in the room with facilities such as an iron, kettle, safe, hairdryer. A pub, along with a different range of takeaways and restaurants are just a short walk away, if the restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel is too expensive for your liking. You won't find anything such as a gym, pool, spa etc here - but then again, a lot of places don't offer this service. Parking is off road and feels safe and secure. Staff are friendly and make the stay easy. The Metrolink (East Didsbury) is just a 10 minute drive away where you can park for free and jump straight into the centre of Manchester. Would stay again if the correct price became available.

Modon20720, London, United Kingdom 09/04/2017

We have stayed here as a couple and loved both the room and the restaurant, but this time booked our daughters in too. We had a room in the new block which was not up to the standard of our previous stay, NO BATH, which was unexpected for the price. The room was also uncomfortably hot with no way to override the safety catch on the window to enable more than a 2 inch opening, and no air conditioning. The restaurant served really good food, but the service was somewhat erratic as they really busy with a wedding and it eventually trailed off completely. We would have liked coffee but everyone had disappeared. It was still a good night's stay but I'm not entirely sure we received the service we expected for the price.

Any changes or new bookings she very confirmed them in a prompt manner, also Ruth kindly upgraded our room which meant the morning of our wedding when I was getting ready with family and friends there was plenty of room. On the night before the wedding we also had a nice meal in the restaurant area, breakfast both mornings was very nice too. Thank you Ruth you were fabulous and a credit to the hotel.

Stayed here prior to a meeting I was having in Stockport. I can HONESTLY say it was an absolute delight - from entry to departure. Reception (Sarah?), was welcoming and efficient. The room was slightly on a smaller scale than most hotel rooms, but it was well laid out. Clean and well stocked incl safe. Dinner was DIVINE. I had the burger and truffle & parmesan fries, which I still think and talk about today. Service was also excellent. Nice area to relax with a drink afterwards. Plenty of parking + free WiFi.

Thea R, Split 21/11/2016

We stayed here because most of the hotels in Manchester were full or ridiculously priced due to the Christmas market and big Mancs vs Arsenal match. A little bit further out than we would have liked for a city visit but great for the airport. All staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful - a joy to be served by staff from the area as it lends to the sense of place when you're travelling. The decor generally was good, bedrooms well appointed, beds comfy and rooms quiet. I would have liked a hairdryer in the room, but I'm sure reception could have provided one, so a relatively minor point. Breakfast in the morning was of a good standard and the buffet generously provisioned. Would stay here again.

Close to the airport, which is why I stayed there. The staff seemed like I was bothering them when checking in or ordering food and drink at the bar. The room was difficult to get to, had to get off on the third floor, go up stairs, down stairs, and finally found my room after a maze of a hallway. Room was VERY small with tiny shower. It was fairly clean.

Bandrat, Weston super Mare, United Kingdom 13/11/2016

We have just had a three night stop at this hotel, and must say what a pleasure it was from the moment we parked the car. Yes a car park with ample space. On getting to reception we were greeted by a lovely warm and friendly receptionist who took care of all the booking in side of the visit. Into the room and what a great feeling of cleanliness and comfort. Superb. Warm and friendly staff throughout with nothing being too much trouble. Public transport into Manchester is virtually right outside the hotel on the other side of the road. It takes about 50min but saves all the parking worries. The one and only downside we could find was the cost of the restaurant. There are other restaurants just down the road in the village of Handforth should you so wish. All in all a very worthy stay. Thanks to all the staff.

Welshman_on_2ur, North Wales 13/11/2016

Stayed here for one night with a party of delegates visiting the UK. Prior to arrival: Due to the M56 being closed as a result of a bad accident, we arrived about an hour and a half late. During that tortuous journey to the hotel, the front desk staff were excellent in providing information to us about the closing time of the restaurant etc. Location: A bit out of the way, but a nice semi-rural setting; plenty of car parking but not so good for a coach. Check-in and out: Smooth and organised; providing luggage storage for a short period of time etc. Restaurant: Good quality late meal with very good service for a group of people; extensive buffet breakfast. Public areas: Tastefully decorated with a comfortable bar area. Bedroom and bathroom: I was in a standard double and it was comfortable, albeit rather dated. The bathroom had some dubious grouting and mastic work - not up to 4* hotel standard. Our driver was in a single room and he informed me that he struggled to sleep because of the size of the bed. To sum up: The hotel served its purpose well as a last night stop-over before going into Manchester for the day and then flying from Manchester Airport. All members of staff we encountered were polite and friendly and all in all, it turned out to be a good overnight stay.

We stayed here the night before our holiday in October 2016. we found this to be an excellent hotel in every respect. The staff could not be more helpful, and the hotel is very nicely appointed. Our room was clean and comfortable. Although the restaurant and bar looked nice, We did not eat here as we wanted to go into Manchester. We were advised of the location and distance to the train station by the hotel receptionist (10 minute walk). We chose the park and stay option, and paid £108 for the room + 17 nights parking! this price also included a return taxi service to and from the airport. Absolute no brainer if flying from Manchester airport. Highly recommended.

Tom C, Val d'Isere, France 10/11/2016

We had a lovely looking large room but the noise from a golf club party below was extremely bad. We complained but were told there was nothing they could do. The next day we met a manager and were granted a ~50% refund and told that they had never had any complaints about noise in that room. Looking back through TripAdvisor, we see numerous complaints, so they knew all along that we would have had a problem. They should never have let the room to anyone other than someone attending the party. Even then, they would have been disturbed by staff clearly up afterwards and very loud plumbing sounds.

John S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Tom My sincerest apologies in regards to the noise disturbance that you experienced whilst staying at the Hotel. We do from time to time have a none-resident function taking place whereby many of the guests are local and do not stay over at the Hotel. When the Hotel is fully booked with none function guests we do allocate as best as we can so that noise disturbance is kept to the minimal. We also ensure that all guests are made aware upon arrival of what time the music will finish and on this occasion it was around midnight. I am so pleased that one of my Managers discussed matters with you in the morning when you departed and gave you a 50% refund. My apologies again for the inconvenience caused on this occasion.

Tarryn K, Greater London, United Kingdom 04/11/2016

Recently stayed in one of the suites of the hotel. Really lovely spacious room with lots of complimentary goods. Had room service from the hotels restaurant, excellent food. Bed really comfortable so really good nights sleep. Good selection for breakfast- cooked breakfast and continental available. Would be nice if breakfast did cater for allergies so for me the selection was slightly limiting. Very friend staff at the hotel and I would stay there again.

User 30/10/2016

This was a real surprise. We had fairly low expectations of a c.£60 per night hotel near an airport, but this place appears to have received a comprehensive re-fit fairly recently and is therefore modern, comfortable and quiet. A ten minute drive to the airport makes it very convenient for an early morning flight, and we will certainly stay again when the need arises. We didn't try the restaurant or breakfast, so can't vouch for either ( though the evening and room service Menes looked fine).

This is a decent hotel, staff are helpful although the layout of the hotel means you dont really get a chance to see them. Its a bit convaluted and hard to find rooms but you get a mix of people there coming for all sorts of different events which makes it fun, the breakfast is nice too.

"Perfect for the Airport."

MissPowell, Lewisburg, Pennsylvania 26/10/2016

I needed a comfortable, reasonably priced, easy to find hotel with 24 hour desk, and easy journey to Manchester Airport. The roads around the airport can be horrible in the morning, especially on a Monday. I needed to check in late, park my rental car, check out early, drive to the airport, return my rental car, and get to my terminal with minimal problems. This hotel provided everything I needed. Perfect spot for an early morning drive to airport. Friendly staff, wake up call, tea kettle in room, comfortable, spotless room. good night's sleep ....perfect. (And even a clearly marked route to the airport, and a petrol station en route ....perfect!).

Overnight stay for early flight was not a good experience - no wake up call as requested and WORSE, they sent my taxi away!! I woke by chance at 4.40, rushed down to be told the taxi didn't know the room number so they sent it away. I was not pleased! I did get to the airport later than planned but it was not a good start.

"Park & Fly Package"

BeachBum713, Preston, United Kingdom 24/10/2016

Myself & my mum stopped here for 1 night before our flight the next day from Manchester. The staff were all very polite & helpful. When we arrived and checked in the receptionist said we wasn't booked down for breakfast, having explained that we had already paid for this when booking the room she soon sorted this out for us, I think her name was Kathryn. We had some dinner in the bar area, which was very tasty & a few drinks. There was a wedding on at the time so the atmosphere in the hotel was great. We had a twin room which was perfect for a one night stay, slept well & couldn't hear a sound from any other guests. Breakfast in the morning was buffet style, help yourself. It was great, lots of choice from cereals, continental, to cooked breakfast. Tea, coffee, juice etc. Within the park & fly package we got a twin room, breakfast each, parking for 3 nights & also a taxi to and from the airport, the hotel use a taxi firm called Lynx & they book the taxis for you when you check in. On the morning we checked out waiting for our taxi, after half an hour it still hadn't showed up, reception gave them a ring for us and the taxi firm said they hadn't received a booking for us. Which was a lie as i got a confirmation text through on my phone, however after reception phoning them they sent one out straight away. They was also about 45 minutes late picking us back up from the airport, even after we had rang them to say we had collected our baggage! So the only fault was the taxi firm, the hotel was great & would stay there again!

Me and my new wife Danielle just wanted to say a massive thank you to the Pinewood team. The feedback is a little late but it really was the best day of our lives and the Pinewood did not disappoint us. We had over 100 guests for the day and around 170 total for the evening and everyone we have spoken to since said what a wonderful venue it was and how good the staff were. A special mention to Lucy who co-ordinated the wedding for us on the day and had everything running to a tee and made us feel massively at ease as soon as we arrived. We really cannot fault anything about the hotel from the rooms to the food on the day which was superb. Thank you so much for all of your help in making the day extra special for us and sorry about the delay in feedback. Thanks Matt and Danielle Lillis

I believe in praise where it's due, we stayed overnight for a family visit. From arrival to checkout, this hotel was faultless. Our executive double room was gorgeous with a very comfortable bed..and the little touches were all place for you , pillows were numerous lol and the decor was modern and light....a flat screen on the wall opposite the bed made having a morning cuppa very comfy....a big plus for me was the staff...from night to day the staff were friendly and attentive...breakfast was hot with plenty of choices even though we were almost at the end of breakfast service. Overall I'm very impressed...lovely relaxing overnight stay..

Ample parking on arrival, reception staff friendly, efficient and welcoming, reception area, bar and restaurant warm and comfortable. Had booked a balcony room, not particularly useful in Manchester in October, but would be nice with decent weather. Room large and well equipped and nicely decorated, bed very comfortable, bathroom clean and asthetically pleasing, only negative was the glass shower door which wouldn't stay in position, allowing water to flood the floor

Stayed here before our flight from Manchester Airport, good clean rooms in the new building and we found the staff very friendly and helpful. Didn't use any of the other facilities, including bar or breakfast, so can't comment on these. A word of warning if your planning to leave your car in the car park for a few weeks or so, watch where you park your car and make sure it's not under one of the many trees in the hotel grounds, as you may return to a car covered in leaves and tree sap, and the inevitable clean up job. Perhaps the management could think about bringing this to your attention, by placeing a warning note on the taxi pick-up information sheet that is handed to you at check-in.

Tolroy, Nottingham, United Kingdom 15/10/2016

It was meant to be a simple overnight stop before our flight. Being a touch delayed we rang in to see if we still had time for dinner. Our experience from Sophie at reception who was super attentive and helpful to Karen the restaurant manager, was first class. Above average food, tasteful well designed bedrooms, attractive surroundings and a 10/15 drive to the airport. On top of that very good value price when we booked. Thanks a great stay to start our holiday. On important point. There are two Best Western hotels in this area with Winslow in the address. Just make sure that your satnav has the correct one. They do weddings.

Magnificentmo, Brampton, United Kingdom 12/10/2016

We stayed at The Pinewood the night before our holiday flight We arrived at the hotel following a horrendous journey through thunderstorms and torrential rain, indeed the hotel had been flooded at the entrance. On arrival we were told that our room had been upgraded and as this was my birthday this was a lovely surprise. Dinner was lovely apart from my choice had run out. Compensation was a glass of Prosecco for my husband and I. Unfortunately the taxi booked for our transport to the Airport was delayed by 1/2 an hour apparently due to the taxi firm not picking up the email. The staff were lovely, friendly and polite. It would have got 5 stars but for the taxi problems

GringoStarr27, Abersoch, United Kingdom 12/10/2016

The hotel was well presented on arrival with friendly staff, and since we were only there for 1 night before an early morning flight, the room was basic but just what we needed. Unfortunately for us - and for others I'm sure - the walls are paper thin! I could hear every word from the guests next door, and when trying to get an early night for an early flight, this was annoying. Having eventually gone to sleep, we were then woken by next door's alarm which was as loud as our own alarm would have been. So, even though the location is okay for the airport and the rooms are great for a quick stop over before a flight, don't expect any peace and quiet!

We stopped here for one night while son was having a party at home!! Very welcoming when we arrived, easy check in. Room had plenty of room for wheelchair. Very comfortable beds (twin beds). Excellent shower room, plenty of room and even had a shelf to put shampoo and shower gel on, which most wet rooms don't. Large smart TV with great picture. When we went into bar there was a wedding do going on in the function room, so was a bit noisy but not bad. When we went up to room coud not hear any noise.

"Not a good experience this time"

2
Maz99EastYorkshire, East Yorkshire 05/10/2016

We have used this hotel a number of time for park & fly from Manchester and have in the past been very satisfied with the accommodation but unfortunately not this time We arrived late Friday afternoon and were booked into room 245, there was a wedding party going on so it was busy but not unduly so and we went straight up to our room. Room quite small but sufficient for just the one night so we sorted our bags out and rested after our journey. We went out to eat and arrived back at about 7.15pm and as we had a very early flight we showered and settled down to watch some TV before getting some sleep. However, we were over the room where the wedding party was going on, although we were two floors up and the noise was extremely loud, we could hardly hear the TV or the music going on below. After about an hour I rang reception and asked what time the disco below would finish and was told 1pm, I then asked why we had been put in that room why not put some of the wedding guests in there that were at the party. We were offered another room quite a way away and told we could leave our luggage in the original room and just sleep in the new one, I went to have a look (in my pyjamas, meeting other guests on the way) that room was lovely, I asked why were we not offered that one originally and was told it was a new receptionist!! Anyhow it was quite a way away and it just didn't seem realistic to be tripping about the hotel in the early hours in our night clothes so we declined. We had to be up at 4am so had roughly 3hrs sleep, needless to say neither of us were in the best of moods the following morning. They did refund us 50% of our bill for the inconvenience but we now would not stay there again. More thought needs to be put into putting guests into the correct area of the hotel according to their needs, If you are booking a park & fly I would check whether wedding or parties are going on because they do a lot of them and where your room would actually be.

"Noisy overnight stay"

JNW51, Pickering, United Kingdom 04/10/2016

We stayed here for one night after a late flight into Manchester airport. When we arrived the reception area was full of noisy and drunk wedding guests. The staff were trying their best but were clearly under severe pressure. We were told the bar was open (1.15 am) but was so busy with argumentative customers and a harassed barman that we gave up on any hope of a nightcap. The room was large and well equipped. We were allocated a disabled room (assume that all other rooms were occupied) which was next to the lift. We did not get to sleep until 4am due to constant noise from the wedding guests outside the room - some people really are very inconsiderate. Whilst we accept that it's not the hotel's fault that folk get drunk at receptions they should surely make sure that non-wedding guests are not grossly inconvenienced. To cap it all we found a biscuit under the bed which does not speak well for the cleaning staff and whoever does the checking. The taxi service works very well to and from the airport. On any other day of the week bar Saturdays this probably a reasonable place to stay.

bigpaul22, Doncaster, United Kingdom 03/10/2016

This is a very good hotel, we used it for an overnight stay before flying off from Manchester airport. It is set in a very pretty location which attracts wedding venues, the only issue we had was attempting to access the bar which was over run with wedding guests, its time the hospitality industry woke up to the concept of adequate staff during busy periods. That was the only gripe otherwise we would have given a 5 star rating. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the room clean, comfortable and quiet, the taxi service to and from Manchester airport was seamless a very good park and fly service. We will stay here again.

Stupotran, Immingham, United Kingdom 01/10/2016

I like Best Western hotels , never had a bad one yet , again this came up to standard & was great for an overnight stay for the airport Approx 10 minutes drive. Nice clean room with an amazing shower .. Only one bad point & I let it go as they seemed to be under pressure, I came down for breakfast & had to find a table for myself , asked for some coffee & was asked rather abruptly if anyone had taken my name & room number WHOOPS SORRY , however all was soon put right as a senior staff member had overheard & I was very quickly served with fresh coffee & lots of hot toast. Wi fi is a little slow but that's normal in hotels, & what can you expect it's free anyhow. Over all a pleasant overnight stay & I would go back again ...

We recently stayed here the night before we flew from Manchester airport. We also parked our car here for 2 weeks. The reception was lovely and a very pleasant and helpful lady on duty. She booked us a taxi for the airport upon request. Our room was spacious, extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. We did not have breakfast due to an early flight so can't comment on this. However we did have a meal in the restaurant and it was superb. Would definitely return.

If you are going to stay anywhere near this hotel and you want decent internet and a fair price choose here. I realize this is not a big comforting endorsement, when the choices are worn out cookie cutter premier inn hotels with the half a MB of free internet data and daily fee of 5 L to update to 5 MB. The BW Pinewood is a great find, now I would personally prefer the Raddison with its larger rooms, air conditioning and fast Internet. The BW is a safe bet, I would consider this place again for an extended stay. My coworker tried the breakfast and could not handle it, which is why I never tried, check it out before you consider prepaying for it. BTW Internet in the room was tempermentle but when it worked you get 35 MB at no cost.

We had a late return flight back from our holiday so decided to book this hotel as it was pretty close to the airport and on the way home. Even tho it was early hours of the morning the gentleman on reception was jovial and very polite and had a couldn't do enough attitude. He explained everything clearly and precisely and left us in no doubt about where everything was and the facilities available to us. The room itself was super with everything we needed accessible and simple to use. The tea, coffee and biscuits were a welcome sight. The bed was was extremely comfortable and we had an excellent nights sleep. The breakfast room was easily found and we were seated immediately and offered tea/coffee and toast which arrived within minutes. The breakfast itself was buffet style although you could order speciality items if required (Kippers and the like) There was an excellent array of cereals, fruits, yoghurts and pastries. The quality of the cooked items was exceptional everything was hot and very tasty. Our whole experience of this hotel was fantastic, we will definitely stay again and highly recommend it. This is a four star hotel with a five star quality and attitude.

We stayed overnight prior to flying from Manchester airport. Our room was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean with good bedding and soft fluffy towels. It has a very welcoming feel to the lobby when entering the hotel. Our meal at the restaurant was fabulous, the slow cooked belly pork is a triumph to the very creative and competent chef. I would stay here again even if I wasn't going to the airport.

"Commercial style hotel"

Buncrew, Eastbourne, United Kingdom 25/09/2016

Adequate for what it is. A bit soul-less. Handy to have a Tesco store five minutes away. Our room was over he kitchen/restaurant and far too hot. Housekeeping quickly provided a fan. No issue from them.. They must know the small window which only opens a couple of inches is in adequate. Also, the hotel information indicates use of a gym and sauna. This is a bit of a con. Yes you do get to use these facilities but they are away from the hotel which requires a short drive.

John S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest Thank you for your overall feedback in regards to your recent stay at the Hotel. I am so pleased that my Housekeeping Team reacted so well and provided you with a fan due to your bedroom being rather warm. As you rightly mention the leisure facilities (Total Fitness, Wilmslow ) are off site, around 3 to 4 minutes drive, my apologies that this was not made clear. Thank you again and I do apologise for the inconvenience caused on this occasion. Kind regards. John Scott General Manager

"Very good hotel for the money"

hotelinspectors2, Derby, United Kingdom 24/09/2016

We had booked a flight from Mancester airport that would leave very early in the morning, we normally fly from Mancester and stay over the night before. We would normally book Premier inn as its close to the Airport and we have stayed there before but they were asking £90 for one night I felt this was very expensive for a Premier Inn A quick search on Booking.com bought up this hotel at only £57 I thought there had to be a catch a best western at only £57 surely not!! I booked the hotel expecting a sort of 70's bed and breakfast but was very surprised by how nice this hotel is! We arrived very late at 11.45pm the man of reception was friendly and checked us in but I did struggle to understand him as he spoke quite broken English. We had booked a twin room as this was on the £57 deal and due to our late arrival and early departure we would only spend 4 hours in bed any way! The room was a good size and looked clean and modern. The bathroom did look abit tired in areas but every thing worked and it was very clean. A few days before we arrived I realised I hadn't booked car parking for the airport looking on the airport website showed parking was limited and prices sky high £100 to park in the multi storey for 7 days I called the hotel who said they offered parking and had a separate car park onsite for long stay parking, they were a lot cheaper at only £40 for the week and included free taxis transfers to and from the airport I thought this was excellent value for money. On a site note both taxi drivers were very rude and didn't help with loading or unloading of our cases. We will defiantly look to stay at this hotel again next time we fly from Manchester

"Nice hotel slightly let down by service (and very early binmen!)"

UkJammin, UK 24/09/2016

I stayed at the Pinewood for 2 nights whist attending a meeting in the local area. In advance of my visit I emailed to say I would be arriving late and included my Best Western rewards details which I asked to be associated with my booking. On arrival at around 8:30pm I was told by the receptionist that my booking was Room Only and asked if I wanted to pay for breakfast. I told her I was sure it was booked on a B&B basis and even showed her the confirmation email but she insisted breakfast was not included. I was charged £20. I emailed my company to confirm the details of the reservation and the following day it was confirmed I was booked in on a B&B basis and they had contacted the hotel who would be refunding the amount charged to my card. Upon check-out there was ample opportunity for the same receptionist to apologise for the mistake but she took the opportunity to blame the booking for not being clear. The same also happened to another of my colleagues also staying at the hotel I wasn't welcomed as a BW Rewards Diamond member and didn't receive any of the advertised benefits of the loyalty programme. Whilst raising this might seem a bit petty in the grand scheme of things, Best Western constantly promote the virtues of being a member of their loyalty club - so the 'over promise and under deliver' makes it worse. The glass recycling bins (all 5 or 6 of them) were emptied at 6:15am on Thursday morning and even the heaviest of sleepers couldn't not be disturbed! The above niggles aside, the Pinewood was modern and clean, my room was small but had everything I need including a very comfortable bed. I ate in the hotel bar one evening and the food was tasty although the portions were rather small for the price (see other reviews for recommendations of places to eat locally - there's quite a bit of choice within walking distance). Breakfast had a good selection of hot & cold buffet and the dining room has lovely views over the garden. Despite the negatives above, I would give the Pinewood another go, as I was probably just unfortunate in my encounters with some staff.

John S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Manchester Airport Wilmslow Pinewood Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest First and foremost my sincerest apologies in regard to your concerns raised. I will certainly discuss your comments with my Reception Team in regards to your reservation and the way in which you were dealt with. Being woken up by the emptying of the bottle bins is unacceptable, my apologies and I will certainly get to the bottom of this. Your issues raised will be dealt with in the appropriate manor and I do apologise of the inconvenience caused on this occasion. Thank you. Kind regards. John Scott General Manager

A really nice hotel, clean and comfortable. Have stayed there several times. On last visit the breakfast service was non existent but my main complaint was the cold unwelcoming and unhelpful attitude of certain receptionists - not all I hasten to add as one of them was the extreme opposite.

We just had a great stay at this super hotel where the staff are friendly and helpful. The food is well served and cooked to perfection. Wonderful selection of breakfast items. Our room was extremely hot (probably due to being on the top floor with a flat roof on the hottest days of the year) Would highly recommend this hotel with its lovely gardens to enjoy. Overall this was a good choice. Thanks to all staff.

Ada C, Tamworth, United Kingdom 16/09/2016

We stayed here prior to flying from Manchester. We're given a great room very big with bunks as well as kingside bed. Bath and walking shower seperate. Good tea tray. Hairdryer, safe, iron, fan. - great. Can't comment on restaurant as didn't use it. We're room only. See reviews on Dilshad (indian) and Helles (greek) both easy walking distance and great food. We paid extra £40 for park and fly included private taxi to / from airport. (Good value as a taxi one way to airport is £10) On our return from holiday we booked to stay again we arrived at 8.30 am and had been told in advance we could check in at 10am. Room was ready for 10.15 which was great as regular check in not till 2pm. Many thanks for that. Only problem with room (306) was the heat !!!!! Even with fan going and window open it was stifling hot day and night. With only double bed which after the super king in Mexico felt tiny !!! No bath in this room but very large shower and all other facilities. This room did have a lovely garden view.

dvin2015, Bradford, United Kingdom 14/09/2016

Excellent overnight stay and delicious meal in the restaurant. We didn't require breakfast as we had an early start to the airport. We were met at the door and helped with all our luggage including golf bag. Easy check in by friendly staff. All luggage taken to our very comfortable room. We intended eating out but the restaurant menu looked varied and appealing. Our meal was truly delicious. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would certainly use it in the future for our overnight stays when we need to travel from Manchester Airport. It's only a very short journey to airport by taxi. All organised by the friendly staff on reception.

Spent one night there last week on a business trip and was very impressed. 16 of us were booked in for dinner and the food came out hot and was very nice, apologies to anyone else in the restaurant as some of the conversation on our table tended to get a bit loud. Staff were very friendly, breakfast was also very good and given that it is close to where we normally have our meetings, we intend to use the hotel as a base again. Downside was the temperature in my room and it was a very warm night. Other than that, very nice hotel.

Hamutal F, Tel Aviv, Israel 13/09/2016

I arrived at about 1 am, after an exhausting flight. The receptionist was nice and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable (room 115, 2 single beds). My room amenities included full body mirror and standard complementary tray with cookies and instant coffee and tea. Both were very useful to me. I connected easily to the Wi-Fi, which supplied very satisfying surfing experience There is no airplanes noise from the airport, but I did have some usual noise from the corridor and adjacent rooms. I took a taxi from Manchester airport and paid 23 pound. I am not sure if it is the usual fee.

zeinab1, North Wales, UK 13/09/2016

Stayed here for a few days to relax. Nice welcome, easy check-in, all staff were friendly and helpful, beautiful well cared for gardens to sit in (weather permitting) and nicely decorated. Room with free WiFi, tea/coffee making facilities + biscuits, TV with many channels, clean, comfortable bed, nice bath & shower with plenty hot water and lovely towels. Asked if possible to stay an extra night and was given a good price. Various events held whilst I was staying there and I even received an apology if the noise from a wedding disturbed me (but it hadn't). Food/drinks reasonable prices. . Bus stops very close to hotel in both directions towards Manchester and Macclesfield. Also walking distance (approx 10 mins) to train station. Small variety of shops, take-aways, restaurants and supermarkets just a few minutes walk from hotel. Not far from the airport, they don't have a shuttle to the airport but can arrange a taxi for you, the cost of a taxi is £10 Would recommend and definitely stay again when in the area and need a place to relax.

Attended a wedding reception at the Pinewood in August 2016. The dining room was decorated beautifully. The staff were lovely and we were looked after.

The pinewood is a good hotel for a short stopover break but not a longer holiday . The hotel is clean and well-appointed rooms are good not great but the staff and bar / restaurant areas are lovely . The Hote is on a busy road but has nice grounds to chill out in (if a bit noisy). Breakfast was great buffet style with a good choice . We didn't eat in the restaurant but walked down the road where there is a lovely Italian restaurant which was fabulous .

"Hard to find, poor customer service"

User 28/08/2016

It took us a couple of hours to find this hotel, which was advertised on-line as being in the vicinity of Manchester International Airport. It is definitely "off the beaten path." On check in, we were asked if we would like to upgrade to an executive king suite for an additional charge. We prefer king-sized beds, being tall people, so we said yes, and paid the extra. We were shocked to find what, in the U.S., would be a double or queen bed (not sure which--definitely not a king bed). Moreover, the clerk would not refund the money, despite having (probably unintentionally?) misled us. On the positive side, it was very clean, and the bed was on the new side of the spectrum. It is in walking distance of some local restaurants, which was nice.

Modon20720, London, United Kingdom 26/08/2016

We stayed for just the night, arriving after 7.30. Staff were very welcoming and happy to book us in for dinner at 8pm. The room was spacious and cool , as they had opened the window, unlike many stuffy rooms we've experienced before. The dinner was expensive but worth it, really lovely and interesting. The printed menus, with two separate menus didn't reflect the sophistication of the cooking, and having the wine list upside own at the back didn't add to the experience. Breakfast was again excellent. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Dear Guest I must say your kind words are much appreciated and welcomed, thank you.

I-am-JC, East Anglia 21/08/2016

Working away from home for long periods can be tedious and monotonous but having stayed at the Pinewood hotel for four to five months has made it all the better. This hotel is extremely well run and managed which is a great credit to John and all his staff. Every single night I have stayed here has been a pleasure. There are a good number of other long term repeat clients staying at this hotel and that in itself is testament to the quality of the hotel and its staff. The hotel is well appointed with nice communal areas, lovely outdoor spaces, easy parking, relaxing lounge bar and restaurant and welcoming reception area. I have stayed in a number of room types on all the floors and each and every room was more than adequate even for extended stays of five or more consecutive nights. The beds where always very comfortable and the bathrooms perfectly adequate. The standard of housekeeping is excellent. On nearly 100 nigh stays at this hotel the room was cleaned fully and all items replenished every single time. I never once had to ask for anything. How often can you say that about other hotels! The staff here are absolutely brilliant. I have witnessed the hotel at full stretch and all the staff always seem calm, friendly and professional no matter what the situation. The check in process is streamlined and always met with a smile and friendly hello. The restaurant serves decent food nicely presented and I never had to wait for my food even when the hotel was at full stretch. I dined here on nearly every single night I stayed and never had a reason to complain. The prices are about average for the area so shouldn't break the bank. Breakfast is a buffet affair with a good selection of items to suit most diets and as always there is a friendly welcome from the staff. Obviously having stayed at the hotel for about 100 nights I am well placed to observe the day to day running of this place and genuinely can't find a single fault or cause for complaint and that has to be a great credit to the manager and his staff. I would like to extend a very special thanks to Bobby and Alan behind the bar who work hard but always have a friendly and welcoming smile and are obviously very efficient. For me there is one stand out member of staff who has always impressed me greatly and she has always made time to help me with local knowledge, improve my language skills and just generally cheerful, polite, efficient, courteous and friendly so a very big extra thanks to Monica. Whilst I have named certain members of staff here I think all the staff deserve full credit for the way this hotel feels and runs. They are the heartbeat of the place and the manager should feel justifiably proud. Whenever I am back in this area this will be the only hotel I will call at. I have tried all the others and believe me this one is miles better than any of them.

Dawn T, Pontefract, United Kingdom 08/08/2016

We stayed here the night before our early morning flight from Manchester Airport. The package was room, parking and private taxi transfers to and from the airport. Lovelly hotel that has just been referbished. There was a wedding reception the night we stayed which didn't encroach as much as you would think.The room was large with a king sized bed and brilliant bathroom. I can't comment on the food as we ate at a local Indian Restaurant ( Dilshad - fantastic! ). Our taxi was booked for 3.45 am and arrived 10 minutes early. On returning after our holiday we rang the taxi company and our taxi arrived about 15 minutes later to take us back to the hotel for our car. 1 night stay, transfers and 10 days parking was £94. Bargain! Will deffinately stay again if we fly from Manchester.

Bilal I, Peterborough, United Kingdom 08/08/2016

This hotel is a lovely place to stay. All the rooms have their own theme....i would definitely recommend asking for a room with a view of the grounds as they are very well maintained. We stayed here as a family while visiting some friends in the surrounding area and outer manchester. For the price i don't think you'll find better!!

"Not a great start"

LauraN1980, Sheffield, United Kingdom 07/08/2016

We stayed at this hotel 21st July 2016 before our morning flight from Manchester, our room included parking and transfers. On arrival at the hotel at 8pm we found that there was no parking spaces at the hotel, after an hour drive with a small child this was not a great start to our holidays. We abandoned the car to enquire at reception what we should do about parking and we were told that as there was a couple of conferences on that night there may be car parking spaces later that night or in the morning. At this point we mentioned that surely they must know they have guests arriving that have park and fly and could they not have reserved spaces for these guests, the receptionist just said "what exactly do you expect me to do about it?" We gave up at this point and just left the car parked at the main entrance on yellow lines and checked in, the room itself was nice and clean but there are a few steps in the corridors which when you have luggage is not ideal but we managed. The walls of the room seemed very thin and it did not help that the room next door felt the need to watch the TV at full blast until midnight. Private transfer was on time but it was just a local taxi which on reflection we probably could have stayed in a premier inn and booked our own transfer. Not a great start to the holiday and will not use this hotel again!!!!!

We stayed again at this hotel before going on a special trip for our Ruby Wedding. Staff we have already met were very welcoming and this was a good feeling. We had a very big room with fruit strawberries and chocolate sauce as an added extra. We spent the night here and had a beautiful meal as usual. On returning to the UK from our exotic holiday, we had the same room. fabulous room but unusually for UK ,the weather was exceptionally warmer than we had in Mauritius. The room very warm and although a fan had been put in ,the hotel obliged with another fan. Staff as usual were great and the manager, checked to see if everything was OK. Would recommend this hotel to everyone.

This hotel , its facilities and mainly it's superb staff make it a welcoming and restful place to stay. We used it last night as a stop of on our journey from France to N Wales and can only say" this is the first of many stays in the future " Excellent room, Great facilities, and a beautiful breakfast served by fabulous staff! From the Night Porter who checked us in and served us our night caps to the Breakfast Waitress and receptionist, all staff were friendly and courteous. We will be back.

"Caught in the middle!"

Peter S, Daventry, United Kingdom 04/08/2016

At the first glimpse it looks like a very nice hotel on the outskirts of Manchester close to the Airport. What makes it worse are the details. I paid £16 extra for exec double room on top of standard twin room charge. I was hoping to make a pillow fortress in the middle of the bed and have a good sleep before busy day at work. What I didn't realise is that double room in this hotel = two beds put together with two mattresses. So I ended up caught between mattresses and had to sleep at the side making it a single bed. When I asked receptionist about that she said there are no true double rooms in the hotel. To sum it up , decent hotel brought down by beds and very narrow bathtub that will leave you with no choice but to hug with shower curtain while showering. Also no A/C.

DA_2011134, London, United Kingdom 04/08/2016

I stayed at this hotel for one night. The staff were friendly and the bar area downstairs was nice. However, the room itself was old and cramped. There was an old school shower and the bathroom mirror was at waist height so I couldn't see my face in it. The road outside was very noisy and being next to the airport the planes were very loud. When it rained the noise from the roof was comparable to being in a caravan. The dinner menu was clearly aimed at people with a business allowance, overpriced basic food. I ordered steak and chips which had lots of things added to it, would have been better left alone. This with a drink cost £27 which really isn't worth it. Breakfast was a disorganised buffet. Plates and tongs crazily hot. Food quality not great. Also took 20 minutes to get a cup of tea. My colleague paid extra for the Executive Double room, only to find out the double room is a twin room in disguise, with the beds shoved together. This apparently was very uncomfortable. When he mentioned it to the staff they said all of their "double" rooms are like this. I think Best Western need to think about what "double" actually means! Overall it is fine to stay there if it was <£50 a night, but certainly isn't worth any more than that and I won't be going back.

Had two night here when visiting Manchester. Great not to be living in the city. Handforth is a lovely village. My room was great and the hotel has beautiful gardens which I enjoyed. In fact very difficult to drag yourself away from the hotel gardens on a sunny day..nice sun terrace. Bar and restaurant great and food good. But best of all the staff.. Every member of the team from the barman, restaurant staff, management and housekeeping all lovely..made you feel really valued as a customer and genuinely friendly. Great team....oh..and did I mention the food!

BeckyO88, County Durham, United Kingdom 30/07/2016

We stayed here for a overnight stop before travelling to Manchester Airport, this is the third time we have stayed here for this reason. Hotel has gone through a refurbishment since our last stay and has improved the reception and bar area. We were able to check in slightly before the set time - our room was on the 1st floor and was really nice. We didn't eat in the hotel but went to the waggon and horses pub which is a short walk away. We had an undisturbed nights sleep which was perfect for our 3am alarm. It took us approx 10 mins to drive to jet park plus where we left our car for our holiday. Another good stay and we will be back again if flying from Manchester airport!

"Not able to sleep due to a wedding party"

PaulJNewton, Reading, United Kingdom 29/07/2016

Good Points: We chose this hotel to be close to Manchester airport, it is close, and it was an easy drive to the airport at 3am. Nice grounds. Nice Restaurant Pleasant staff. Bad Points: We had booked a twin room for our children and a double for ourselves. The children's room they allocated for us was two floors away from ours at the other end of the hotel. This would not have been acceptable if our children had been any younger, as it was it made it hard to check everyone was up in time to leave.. On arrival we had explained we would be leaving at 3:30 am, and at that time it was suggested that we book a table at the restaurant early to avoid a wedding party. At this stage they might have told us we would not get any sleep or they probably could have asked if we wanted to move to a different room in a quieter part of the hotel - but no they gave us a room over the dance hall. We did not realise this until it was too late to ask to move room. As a result we were kept awake by music and the DJ shouting until past 1 am. On leaving we did not have time to discuss the noise, but the porter said he was surprised we had not been warned in advance by email or phone. Best Western did have all our details and had ample time to warn us. (We had booked by phone with Best Western - not direct with the hotel.) We normally chose Premier Inn and have never had a problem like this.

Ashef, Reading 27/07/2016

We stayed for our fifth time in the past few years. We were really impressed with the new developments and general enhancements since our last visit in November 2015. As you enter the hotel, the quality is apparent, with welcoming reception and efficient bar staff. The bar area has good seating for drinks and food. The garden is accessible from the bar with exceptional patio seating and plenty of lawn to view and admire. Viewed from the main road the hotel looks quite small, but as you park up,either at the front reception area or the extensive parking area around the hotel and garden, you realise its extent. There are no parking problems and plenty of open garden area to enjoy. The bedroom was of a good size including a desk for working at and plenty of storage for clothing and luggage. The bathroom was well equipped. A safe was available, but be careful to follow the instructions and press the red re-set button before doing anything else! Don't worry though, as the staff are amazingly helpful in case you lock all your valuables away by accident! The restaurant was really excellent. There was a very good menu choice with efficient and helpful service. The food was of good quality and freshly prepared. Nothing was too much for the staff to make the experience very memorable. The IT billing system to room is seamless, as it follows you from bar to restaurant and then back to bar, without fuss or error. I have to congratulate the hotel on its new lift, undoubtedly added at great expense since our last stay in November 2015. Large and smooth and non-claustrophobic. It was well worth the investment. We will return to this excellent hotel before too long.

Lyn P, Bristol, United Kingdom 25/07/2016

My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights, recently. The first room we were offered seemed very noisy because it was on at the front of the building on the main road, we asked if there was a quieter room and were offered one but told it was a very hot room with only one small is window. We decided to stay in the first room, the first morning we were woken early by the heavy traffic, the second by a delivery lorry directly below our window and the third by some very drunken, foul mouthed revellers from the wedding held on the Saturday - not great from a sleep point of view!! But 95% of the staff were so pleasant, friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were very good, as was the restaurant, that overall our stay was very enjoyable. I would suggest anyone booking asks if they can have one of the recentlyrefurbished rooms which would be much quieter and presumably very up to the minute decor.

236DavidE15, London, United Kingdom 25/07/2016

I booked this hotel as my flight was arriving in the middle of the night and I wanted some sleep before continuing my journey. The hotel was a fraction of the cost of the airport hotels, and only takes about 15 mins to get to from the airport. WARNING: do NOT use the black cabs at the airport to travel to the hotel. Their fares are astronomical. Instead use the private hire cabs at the airport - they are less than half price of the black cabs. I didn't see much of the hotel during my brief time there, but check in and check out was friendly and efficient. The layout was slightly confusing. I had to take the lift up to the 3rd floor to go down some steps to the 4th floor then go down some stairs to my room. My room was small, but comfortable. It had no view apart from the concrete of another block, but I wasn't there long enough to let that bother me. I slept well. SUMMARY A useful hotel for airport travellers, at a fraction of the cost of airport hotels. I would use it again, and hopefully have time to enjoy more of it next time.

Stayed with my mum for one night after visiting the Tatton Park flower show. From start to finish, our stay was superb. Room lovely, spotlessly clean but a little hot. On request a fan appeared which saved the day! We had dinner in the restaurant which was delicious, good quality, fresh ingredients and lovely Merlot wine. Very quiet during the night and we had a great sleep in the very comfy beds. Breakfast was definitely one of the best we have had, again quality of food was fantastic. Sadly, my mum had a fall, however, out of this came the realisation on just how good the staff are there. Special thanks to Staci who was an absolute star, however the manager John really is superb. You can tell that he has a really good team behind him. We will definitely return, gorgeous hotel.

This hotel was clearly refurbished to a high standard a few years ago and retains lots of attractive features. Our bedroom had a large bed - probably larger than king size, bath/shower room, iron and board TV and free WiFi. there was even a computer downstairs for anyone to use. It was easy to find and the breakfast was as good as we have had anywhere. They also offer free entry to Totalfitness gym which is 5 mins drive away. This is the best gym I have been to; with 9 pools, tropical and artic showers, steam room, sauna, hot tub you could swim in, 2 floors of gym equipment including a ladies gym and an indoor running track.

The staff are so friendly and polite. They attend to any requests in an efficient professional manner. Beds are very comfortable and rooms well equipped. The transfer to and from the airport is excellent. The hotel uses a local private taxi firm with polite drivers with clean and well maintained vehicles. John Scott the hotel manager is always in attendance making sure the hotel runs smoothly. He has a good relationship with the staff. Creating a good work environment.

Stayed Thursday 14th July, we have always stayed at one of the hotels on site at Manchester airport, for some reason their pricing has increased to a level where I looked a little further out from the airport. We decided to try the Pinewood.. we were not disappointed. we booked an executive room, the room was modern, nice décor. flat TV on the wall, very comfortable bed.. excellent bath room. We didn't have anything to eat, because we were on a 6.20 am flight. Travel time to the airport at 4.30/4.45 am was around 8-9 mins. We will be using again.. great hotel, great pricing.

My husband and I stayed here after a concert in Manchester while the hotel itself was very welcoming we found the opposite with the member of staff who greeted us on arrival. Ruth was very off hand with myself and other members of staff behind the desk. It was as though everything was too much trouble particularly when asked about wi-fi in the room she proceeded to point at the key fob and told us to read the instructions. I know it's a busy place but I feel manners cost nothing. As I stated earlier the hotel is lovely just a shame our experience was spoilt by a rude member of staff.

I've stayed here several times on business since the refurb, and is now my preferred hotel in this area. The staff are friendly and efficient, ample parking inc overflow, grounds been redone & great for a drink outside when it's warm enough. Food in the bar & restaurant is of good quality with plenty choice, and chef is always up for requests. Good wifi which is free & plenty tv channels. I've stayed in both the refirb'd rooms which are much better than the older ones, so suggest you ask what's available. I've never been disturbed by noise, although only there mid weeks, am sure the reception and porters would help, as I've always found them very professional. Would highly recommend!

Since my last review I said I would give this hotel another try. Well I have stayed in this hotel every month since in various room with the last two visits being in the executive room. Yes the room was very spacious and pleasant on the eye with a very big bathroom with separate bath and walk in shower. However the room get food smells from somewhere (kitchen maybe below the room) along with the beats of music, which could be drowned out with the TV. For me I just don't and haven't felt a sense of friendliness or welcoming to this hotel compared to all the other hotels I have stayed in.

Dear Henry Thank you for your overall feedback in regards to your recent stay at the Hotel. It disappoints me to say the least that your overall experience again has been one to remember for all of the wrong reasons. I do apologise that you could smell food being prepared through your bedroom window and that you could hear music from somewhere within the Hotel. I will certainly look into your concerns in more detail so that my other guests do not experience the same issues as you have done. It is very unusual to receive a negative comment about my Team not being friendly or welcoming, however I will certainly take your comments on board. I would like the opportunity to discuss your concerns in more detail and to be given the opportunity to restore your faith in the Hotel. Would you be so kind and contact me at the Hotel at your own convenience so that I can personally discuss your concerns in more detail. The Hotel telephone number is 01625 529211. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you again and I do apologise for the inconvenience caused. Kind regards. John Scott General Manager

"Best Western near Manchester at Wilmslow is very good"

We stayed here after a journey from around the other side of the world. The hotel reception staff were very understanding and helpful and the room quiet and comfortable to catch up on some serious lack of sleep. That evening we took a lovely short walk through the hotel gardens to the village where we bought dinner (at a take away) and some other food from Tesco. Also checked out the suburban train timetable for the trip into Manchester Piccadilly the next day for our forward travel to Cumbria. The breakfast was extensive and fresh. The only thing I would mention negative was a wedding party using the main rooms that evening and some of the guests were still laughing, crying (and possibly arguing) late into the night in the Carpark adjacent to the rooms...hardly the fault of management...more likely just tired and emotional people.

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to complete a Trip Advisor review in regards to your recent stay at the Hotel.

User 08/07/2016

I booked this hotel a couple of weeks before via booking and it was only 55 pounds. I was expecting a budget hotel being so close to the airport. Room was around four star level with nice taste, bathroom fine although one small point is I didn't like shower as being over 6ft tall it reached my shoulders. I ate diner in restaurant night before, food was excellent a la cart, prices in restaurant average. I like this hotel as it's very high quality for the price. Parking was an issue though as they had a conference as well but it is a large car park. Staff were all professional. Would recommend.

ian b, middlesbrough 04/07/2016

Used the Best Western the night before early flight from Manchester Airport, very easy to book, got a fantastic deal which included breakfast for 2, parking for the duration of our holiday AND private taxi to and from Terminal 3 ( about 8 minutes drive ) ! Receptionist was extremely friendly and efficient, explaining everything clearly, and, we were given a free room upgrade. 6 foot bed was extremely comfortable, we got a great nights sleep, large bath, powerful shower, what an excellent start to our holiday, would most definitely use again, even without the upgrade, although I wouldn't say no ! As we were flying out fairly early the breakfast was continental style up until 7.00am, we would have taken the full breakfast had it been available to us, and I am sure that would have been excellent, maybe next time ! Once again highly recomended and we will definitely be back

This was the second time I have stayed at this hotel the night before I was flying out of Manchester. The location is a quiet residential area that is not congested. The rooms are well appointed and very clean, with modern up to date fittings. The staff was particularly helpful and friendly, really made me feel welcome. Located only a few miles from the Rental Car Return Center at Manchester airport, and you can get there on back roads avoiding the motorway. I'll definitely stay here again if I need something close to the airport.

First visit to this hotel and had a wonderful one night stay.Arrived in the evening when there was a big wedding being held. The receptionist was very pleasant, providing a warm welcome and explained about the wedding.With the wedding in full swing we were allocated one of the new bedrooms on the Third floor. The noise was minimal and the standard of the room was excellent.Very clean, well laid out and with a very comfortable bed.Next morning down for breakfast shown to our table immediately,order taken for Tea/Coffee and toast, served quickly and advised to proceed to the servery for the full breakfast. Offer of extra tea and toast towards the end of our meal. No faults found in the dining room. We booked direct with the hotel and it worked out cheaper instead of using Internet websites.

This was our first stay at this particular Best Western and we were not disappointed. Close to the excellent shops in Wilmslow and Manchester airport if you are flying.

We stayed here when going to a wedding at Alderley Hall. It was within 10 mins of the venue and ticked every box. Plenty of parking, good clean comfortable rooms which were well decorated and good showers, great breakfast with loads of choice and nice coffee. Lifts were a bit annoyingly busy at breakfast and stairs sent you round the whole hotel (we were on the third floor). Would definitely return if we needed to again!

"Convenient location for airport & motorway connections"

MidlandsTravelg, Midlands 21/06/2016

We found all the staff at the hotel to be very friendly, welcoming and pleasant. There is plenty of free car parking. The reception area, bar & restaurant are stylishly decorated. The hotel does cater for wedding parties at the weekend. A new extension has added additional bedrooms to the hotel, these are nicely decorated, well appointed with wall mounted flat screen TV, tea & coffee facilities, free safe, iron & ironing board, adequate hanging space, comfortable beds,free wifi however they are rather compact. So not a huge amount of room if you have large suitcases. We had booked a standard double, this did overlook the car park to the rear of the hotel. Suprisingly there is no air conditioning, room heating was by means of an electric radiator, fans were available from reception. The shower room has a walk in double shower, shaver point & magnifying mirror, an electric heated towel rail, the large anti mist mirror was a bonus and toiletries are provided, but again this room was also on the small side, in fact there is no where for housekeeping staff to place any towels,these are left on your bed when you arrive. The buffet breakfast was very good offering an a reasonable choice of juices, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt to start. The hot selection was kept well stocked with bacon, sausage, both fried & scrambled, beans, saute potatoes,mushrooms. In addition to this they also provide additional items on a cooked to order basis for example porridge at no extra charge. Cold meat & cheese was also available. In addition there was a selection of breads (including gluten free bread) & pastries. Tea & coffee are brought to your table as is toast. Service at breakfast was efficient & friendly. If breakfast is not included in your room rate the charge for a full buffet breakfast was £14.95pp or you could have continental for £7.50pp. Whilst the new rooms are compact we found the hotel to offer excellent value especially if you include breakfast within your room rate.

"Easy commute to Manchester"

Murron M, Glasgow, United Kingdom 20/06/2016

Stayed here for a night with two of my friends and my boyfriend, we had two separate rooms mine was a double bed room, the bed was massive and it was extremely comfy, my friends had two single beds which they found comfy aswell. Both rooms were clean and well kept. The bathrooms were also nice, in particular the showers were great, lovely amount of water pressure and heat, loved the shower. We stayed in Handforth as we were going to see The Stone Roses in Manchester and Handforth was easy to commute to via train. The hotel was about a 10/15 minute walk from the train station and it was a straight road walk. The only negative thing about the stay, not the hotel, the area, as lovely as it was it wasn't very good for takeaway or any sort of food late at night. Being from Glasgow and having everywhere open at all hours of the day and night we assumed/hoped that Handforth would be likewise. Basically if you want food late at night either get it in Manchester before you commute home or go out to eat earlier. We also requested a later check out before we stayed which was perfectly fine. All the staff were great and i would go again if i was in the area and looking for a good price for a good hotel.

We stayed here overnight before our flight and left the car parked in the hotel. The price was brilliant and very cheap compared to similar packages. The hotel is lovely and very clean and modern the staff were friendly, although the gym isn't located on site you are able to use one about a 5 minute drive away that is brilliant and more than makes up for it not being on site. A taxi service collects you for you flight to and from the airport with is arranged and paid for by the hotel when you check in. Overall a wonderful and very convenient hotel and I will definitely be staying again in the future

Staying each week at the hotel for the last 2 years, together with the recent upgrading of the rooms means that the Pinewood feels a delightful home from home. Lovely welcoming staff, luxury bedrooms and the opportunity of an upgrade as a Diamond customer. Views of the gardens are particularly welcome to remind me of home (a country village in North Yorkshire) and the hotel substantially helps to make working away from home each week more beareable. The hotel provides easy access to major towns in the area (great for work).

User 17/06/2016

Used some best Western hotels several times and this will be the last. It has to do with the tolerance and flexibility. For 68£ the hotel has lost me as a customer. My busines trip was cancelled one day and a half after my booking and although the cancellation of the room was done inmediaetly - and with one week in advanced to the arrival - they decided to charge me the room at my credit card. Bad business for your company!

Dear Josefina Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor. I have looked into your reservation further and I can see that the booking made was through Booking.com which was non refundable and non transferable. It is always better to book direct with the Hotel whereby we are more flexible with our rates and often enough we can give the customer best price. Thank you again. Kind regards.

Bob L, Loganville, Georgia 14/06/2016

This is a modern hotel that fits well into the surrounding residential area. Thus it was surprisingly quiet for a hotel near a large airport. There are restaurants within walking distance, but we enjoyed a dinner out in the landscaped garden adjacent to the hotel. The staff were friendly and efficient. They were especially helpful in printing our boarding passes. It is a short drive to the Manchester airport/rental car return or a shuttle can be arranged.

Christopher E, Derbyshire, United Kingdom 09/06/2016

The good: Location 8/10 - Minor aircraft noise, otherwise quiet, 5 minute walk to town centre for local shops and takeaways, etc... Shower 9/10 - could be a bit higher, but great pressure and temperature. Room 9/10 - Good size, storage, and hanging space with tea, coffee, biscuits. Bed 8/10 - Good, but needs more pillows. Wifi 9/10 - Good speed, free, easy to connect. The bad: The window (singular) only opens 1 inch (see photo) so even in early summer (June'16) sleep was impossible due to the temperature. A fan was supplied on request, but an industrial one, making so much noise you'd can hear the TV above it - and all it's doing is blowing the hot air around. In the winter probably a very nice hotel, in the summer, AVOID

jujo_12, Glasgow, United Kingdom 06/06/2016

We stayed at this hotel for one night as part of a "park & fly" package and then stayed for 3 nights upon our return to attend a family wedding taking place at the hotel. The hotel itself has been recently renovated and the rooms and public areas have been decorated and furnished to a very high standard indeed. Really comfy bed, tea & coffee making facilities in the rooms, high quality bathroom minis, and an extremely powerful shower (always welcome), flat screen TV (though I think I am one of the few who never watch TV in a bedroom so cannot comment on it) and plenty of drawer and wardrobe space. Breakfast was superb and our park & fly was so simple to arrange at the reception desk upon our initial check-in. The wedding we attended was so lovely and all the attention to detail was perfect. The food was delicious and the glorious gardens made for some delightful wedding photos (and, of course the sun helped there too!). All the fantastic staff are a true credit to this wonderful hotel. John and his amazing team are always on hand with a smile and a cheery word and nothing is too much trouble....if you need something, want to ask something, whatever, just ask, they are only too happy to help.

"Fond memories of my wedding 45 years ago. Pinewood still has the same charm and beauty."

downtowngal123, Toronto 30/05/2016

My sister surprised me with stay at the Pinewood Hotel before my return flight from Manchester to Toronto in May 2016. Why the Pinewood ? Because I had my wedding reception there 45 years ago. What a nostalgic and wonderful surprise. It is still a beautiful and traditional hotel. In 1971 there was just the white building at the front of the property but now Best Western has added a wing to accommodate more rooms and meeting facilities. Tastefully done and they have maintained the charm and uniqueness of the original hotel. One staff member, Rick, a local lad who knew the history of the hotel, took us to what used to be "The Penny Farthing Suite". It is now a meeting room but with a little imagination I was there as a young bride. I had Lancashire Hot Pot in the One Eighty. Delicious and also comfort food. Breakfast the next morning was outstanding. Before leaving for the airport I had a photo on the steps leading into the garden. The exact stair and garden that we had a group wedding photos. I recall some wedding photos around a pond in the garden. And it's still. It's some kind of a planter but I recognized it. Thank you for the memories and maintaing the charm and beautiful of this this treasure of a hotel. All the staff were friendly and efficient. A warm welcome,. Thank you. Even without the memories, I'd recommend the Pinewood Hotel to all guests.

John S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Pinewood on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Guest Fond memories indeed... It must be wonderful to come back to the Hotel after this length of time and reminisce. As you have seen the Hotel has been through a lot of change over the years and I am so pleased that you found the Hotel beautiful and traditional. The Hotel has been privately owned now for over 5 years and within the last 3 years we have invested £4 million into the property and the transformation has certainly been welcomed by my guests and my team. I have a wonderful Team who go out of their way to make sure that all guests are looked after to a high standard and this certainly shows from your kind words, much appreciated thank you. Ric has been working at the Hotel for 10 years now and remembers the Hotel from old. The Penny Farthing Suite has been called the Tatton Suite for sometime now and it was very good of Ric to show you into this room where you have many fond memories. All the best and I look forward to welcoming you back to the Hotel in the near future. Kind regards. John Scott General Manager

"Avoid Rooms Above the Function Suites"

OliveandBingo2016, Stourbridge, United Kingdom 30/05/2016

Firstly this is a very pleasant location with helpful staff and good facilities. The grounds are very secluded and soothing and the location for the airport is excellent. The staff are pleasant and helpful and the rooms are modern and functional especially as we stayed in the newly refurbished rooms. You could smell the newness of the carpet. The only gripe. Upon arrival we were told that there was a joint 40th birthday party but because we were staying on the 3rd floor it will not affect us. Unfortunately it did and for five hours we had to put up with the thud of the DJ's music. Upon ringing the reception they were genuinely surprised at this and it transpired that there were soundproofing issues in some of the new rooms. They refunded us half the room rate for our troubles. We would return again but would insist we are nowhere near the function suites!!

Dear Olive Thank you for your overall feedback in regard to your recent stay at the Hotel. My apologies in regards to the noise disturbance that you experience and it is pleasing to read that my Reception Team gave you a 50% reduction on your room rate as compensation. It is pleasing to read that you found my Team very pleasant and helpful and that you enjoy the look and feel of the new bedroom that you were allocated. Thank you again.

"Wilmslow Break"

sjch2015, Camberley, United Kingdom 27/05/2016

We picked this hotel for being conveniently centred for us to visit various 'Trust' Properties and other holiday activities. We found the hotel to be nicely presented and the room small but attractively presented and we particularly enjoyed the patio and garden setting.....very pleasant to sit and have a drink. My only complaint would be that on our 2nd night a rowdy party went on late at night on either the patio (or the room next door - we were above the patio but couldn't see it, so it was difficult to make out exactly) we did phone down about 2.20am and asked if something could be done but nothing happened and the noise went on for another hour or more.

Dear Guest Thank you for your overall feedback in regards to your recent stay at the Hotel.

Fantastic Hotel cannot rate it High enough, My husband and I celebrated our 11th Wedding Anniversary, we chilled in the afternoon with a few wines, staff very attentive and friendly. Room was stunning with a beautiful view of the gardens. Our evening meal was fabulous , finished off with coffee in the bar. Breakfast was great lots of choice and the food was lovely and hot, I love it that toast is brought to the table so you don't have to stand at a machine like most other hotels do. We will be back!

"Stayed again before holiday."

SoulgirlCarnforth, Carnforth 26/05/2016

We have stayed here numerous times before going on holiday, it's a great hotel with excellent staff. We paid £113 for park and ride in a balcony room with 15 days parking, it's £99 in a double, which this time unfortunately we couldn't really use as it was raining, but not a problem as the view over the garden is great. We were too leaving too early for breakfast in the morning but if you want for £5 the hotel will make you up a light takeaway one. We always have an evening meal in the hotel, the food is fabulous and reasonably priced,compliments once again to the chefs and all waiters and waitresses. The room is very comfortable with the usual tea, coffee, biscuits, flat screen tv, all the necessary toiletries and the safe , which is free, enabling us to put our passports etc in for safe keeping. Handforth Dean shopping centre is only a 15 min walk or 5 min drive to have a nosey round and get sandwiches for the airport or last minute bits you have forgotten. The taxi firm(lynx) were spot on time both ways, and send you txt messages to let you know your taxi has been booked and also when it has arrived, which always makes the stress of the airport a little better. We will be back again next year when they may have finished adding more rooms, thanks again for a lovely stay.

"Great Staff Nice Rooms"

John C, Wilmslow, United Kingdom 25/05/2016

I have been staying at this hotel almost every night for the past couple of months and it is my hotel of choice for this area. What sets this hotel above the others in my opinion is the staff who are always friendly efficient and courteous. Sadly that is not the case with many of the other hotels in the area. The staff here do go the extra mile to help and assist you and seem enthusiastic and well prepared for all situations. The rooms are always left fully stocked and well cleaned and the food here in my opinion is very good and I have not had a bad meal from over 30 visits. It's a little pricey but what other hotel gives better value and service in the area, not many! If I had to make one complaint it would be the bacon at breakfast. On every occasion I have dined there the bacon is always so over baked its dry and hard and at £15 for a breakfast perhaps it could be improved but the rest of the breakfast offering is always to a good standard. The hotel itself is pleasant, well laid out and the standard of décor is good. The rooms are adequate and well appointed. The beds in some rooms are better than others but none are that bad. A few of the rooms are located right next to the lift shafts which could be annoying especially when airport users depart at very early o clock! and a few others do seem to pick up a slight noise from air con units or other fans near the room. I am sure the hotel would happily accommodate a room swap for light sleepers but I have never been that badly affected to request this yet. I am currently in a disabled room although I do not require it but I can see it is equally well appointed with all the required equipment fitted. Like I said before I have been here probably 30 times in the last 2 months and will probably do the same in the next two months (by choice) and as yet I have been very impressed and all credit to every member of staff and special credit to the guys behind the bar.

"Second time here."

oldator, The Colony, Texas 17/05/2016

We stayed here in 2009, and everything was great. This time it was terrible. We checked in on April 30, 2016. Staying just for the night as we had an 11:00 am flight. Around 7:30 or 8:00pm, there was a terrible racket from one of the party rooms that continued until 12:30. This noise was supposed to be music, but it was loud bass sounds that vibrated the TV and rattled the walls. I called the desk to complain and was told there was an, 'event', going on in one of the party rooms. I was awake till 1:30am with a headache. They can not pay me to stay here again. Sunday morning we down to have breakfast at 7:00am, but was told they don't start serving until 8:00am. Our taxi picked us up at 8:15 to take us to the airport, and we managed to grab a ham sandwich before boarding.

John S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Pinewood on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Guest, Thank you for your overall feedback in regards to your recent stay at the Hotel. It is very disappointing to read your comments and I will certainly make sure my Team are aware. While we do hold events at the Hotel my Reception Team do allocate the rooms above a function to guests who are attending the event to minimise the disruption to other guests staying in the Hotel. Our breakfast service commences at 8am on Saturday and Sunday, however we can provide a continental breakfast earlier when arranged the night prior, this should have been discussed with you upon check in. My apologies for the inconvenience caused on this occasion. Kind regards John Scott General Manager

Janice T, Sheffield, United Kingdom 17/05/2016

Booked a stay prior to flying from Manchester airport, which included parking for the duration of our holiday and taxi transfers. All went smoothly and the staff were friendly and helpful, both on reception and over breakfast. Apparently the hotel has just undergone a refurbishment. Only slight niggle, which did not affect us but might affect someone less mobile, was the lift does not fully service all the rooms. We had a small flight of stairs to negotiate to get from the lift to our room. We were offered assistance with our cases, which we declined, but anyone with walking difficulties would be advised to check where the lift access is in relation to their room on booking or checking in.

Dear Janice, Thank you for your overall feedback in regards to your recent stay at the Hotel.

We had a lovely meal and the lady in charge, sorry can't remember her name but she was from Sardinia was most accommodating when we were give the wrong bottle of wine.

"EXTREMELY UNACCOMMODATING and not a 4 star hotel!"

TravelBuff97, New York 06/05/2016

We arrived from the US after a long flight tired and in need of both sleep and shower. We emailed ahead to request an early check in, but were made to wait 1.5 hours on a sofa in the reception area until 2:00 on the dot, check in time! So our greeting was a bit less than welcome. When we finally got our room, it did NOT look like the pictures from their website, at all. There were two single beds and one small twin bed. My husband and I were less than delighted, to say the least. Our room overlooked the parking lot with a construction site in the distance, so while there was some noise during the day, it was more quite at night. The room was clean and had heat, but no air conditioning. But it was a cool evening so we were able to open the window. Bed was comfortable, and pillows adequate. The bathroom was also clean, and there were adequate towels. There is a teapot in the room for boiling water, and complementary tea. Overall, this is a 1 star hotel with dreadful customer service. Definitely NOT a four star hotel. My recommendation: Stay if you must, but there are too many other great choices to enjoy at much better prices.

John S, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Pinewood on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Guest Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor in regards to your stay at the Hotel. First and foremost I must apologise for your arrival experience. Unfortunately there was some communication issues regarding your request for an earlier check in which I have addressed with the Reception Team. It is very disappointing to read you had to wait for an hour and half until your room type was available. I have certainly used your experience and further customer service training has been given to prevent other guests for experiencing the same issues as you have done. We do have a variety off room types all too different standards which we do advertise on our website. The family room that you had been allocated does unfortunately look on to the nearby building which is under development at the moment. I would like the opportunity to discuss your comments in more detail and restore your faith in the Hotel. Would be so kind and contact me at the Hotel on 01625 529221 or via email lwilson@pinewood-hotel.co.uk so that we can discuss your comments in greater detail together that would be appreciated.

Spacious clean room with comfy beds. Although undergoing renovation work this did not impact on our stay the only problem being the lift was not working but our luggage was taken to our rooms and we only had one flight of stairs to climb. We ate in the restaurant the food was very good especially the Lancashire hotpot although a little pricey but i guess that's what you come to expect at the Best Western these days. The receptionist organised a taxi to the airport which was good value, prompt & efficent. Overall good price paid for a one night stopover we would visit again.

"ONE NIGHT ONLY ..."

Gordon M, South Shields, United Kingdom 21/04/2016

My wife and I stayed here recently en route to Manchester airport (a very short distance away) as were had a very early morning flight. It was reasonably priced and the room comfortable and clean - considering we only needed it for about six hours (we left at 3:45 am!) Needless to say, because of the short time in 'residence', we accessed no other services and thus can't comment on them. However, the check-in was straightforward and we had an alarm call booked. The only downside was that we had to use the stairs (there is presently no lift in operation) to access the room - which is an issue for those, like myself, with a disability, especially if you have a considerable amount of luggage to carry. In this instance it wasn't a major problem for us as we left the main luggage in the car, but would be for those with significant mobility problems.

The room was very clean and had a large shower (some are tiny in other hotels).The evening meal was delicious and the service was attentive without being obtrusive, all washed down with a fine rose wine, as recommended by the manager.

Stayed over here last weekend for a friends' wedding nearby. The room was as expected for this level of hotel, really. Bathroom was fine, had a bath as well as a shower. The bed was big and comfy enough, no problems there - my only complaint is that I couldn't find a plug anywhere near the bed. Not a huge deal, just a bit annoying when I needed to charge and use my phone the following morning. Sadly didn't get down to the breakfast I'd paid for as I was viciously hungover after said wedding. The grounds were very nice and green, and the bar was alright albeit a little small/slow for such a big group of post-wedding guests. I'd stay again, I reckon.

We stayed here recently while attending a nearby wedding. We decided to eat in the restaurant even though it was empty. We all enjoyed our two course meal and thought the menu suited most tastes. The Lancashire hot pot was amazing. Our rooms were standard, no complaints but a few more milk pots would have been nice as we need two per cuppa. Four is a bit mean. Breakfast was good but the dirty dishes were not taken away so the table got overloaded. We had to ask for extra coffee too. Would stay again if in the area.

"Very disappointing!.... "

Kathy K, Wilmslow, United Kingdom 03/04/2016

We decided to visit the hotel for a late lunch & sat in the bar area, the restaurant looked empty/closed. I fancied a roast dinner but as only the bar menu was on offer and it was after 3pm, we thought we were too late for this & ordered from that. Long story short, the vegetables, were disgusting, old & a carrot was even mouldy! My salmon was tasty & well cooked, but the sauce was gritty. Strange. My son & a friend had the burger, which they said was ok, nothing special. However, overpriced at over £12, for what it was. (They said they preferred Macdonalds over it). Lipstick on the coffee cup, table not wiped after the meal was cleared, had to keep finding a member of staff for service & nobody bothered to ask if we enjoyed our meal, so we paid the £53 & left feeling disgruntled & ripped off. All in all, not a good experience at all. We've had Sunday brunch here many times & always had great service & been looked after by a fantastic lady (blonde hair & glasses), she wasn't there today. What a shame. The fact that a man sat down in the bar area near us and had what looked like a lovely fresh roast beef dinner, didn't help the situation. I should have asked if it was available, hindsight & all that. Anyway, We won't be visiting again, but I don't think anyone will be bothered, to be honest.....

I last stayed at this hotel more than 5 years ago when it was a Menzies hotel, as a Best Western now and undergoing renovation work I feared the worst but was pleasantly surprised. The general standard is very good, room was modern and clean. I ate in the bar area and the food was OK too. My only gripe would be that the reception seemed under-staffed, juggling many things between conference delegates and hotel guests, so the check-in and check-out was slow - but friendly!

desdan, cumbria 29/03/2016

Stayed here for one night, prior to catching our flight at Manchester Airport. The problem is here that other people are doing the same. We were set to get up for 05.15am so we could get showered and arrive at the Airport in good time. The problem was that we were woken at 3am by a noisy shower from next door. If you had later flight, I think the sleeping would have been hard. On the other hand, the room was clean, only 1 pkt of biscuits:(. I would only recommend this hotel for a overnight stay but ask to be put in room away from other travellers wanting an early wake up call. On the downside we asked at reception for a early breakfast but this request was not passed on and we had to wait for our carry out which consisted of a cereal bar, Banana and French pastry. Coffee.

OK so it's a Best Western, but this one seems to have been recently upgraded - either that or the staff have kept it in almost pristine condition. The lift was out of service due to the extension to a new level, but that was no problem as staff were available if we needed them -this may be the situation for a short while yet but do not let it put you off staying there. Bedroom was superbly presented and the overall ambiance was totally fine for a pleasant evening preparing for dinner in the Hotel which was not 5 star cuisine, but in every other way acceptable and great value for money. Breakfast was a similar good experience and we would consider using this hotel as an add-on to flights from Manchester at some future date. IMy wife and I are 'fans' of the Best western venues and this visit simply cemented that view to another level. Thank you for a fine night!

I eventually checked in and was point in direction of my room only to come all way back to reception as the key card didn't work. The room and bathroom were clean and warm but small and dated in style. I needed to do some urgent work and struggled to do this with the men taken the scaffolding down and associated noises, after an hour at around 4,30pm I asked reception when they plan to stop and I will resume my work then. They stopped quite soon after my call. I ate in the restaurant and had a nice meal but again was put off by the staff setting up the unused table for breakfast. Had breakfast in the morning and nothing stood out for me to think this was any other hotel at breakfast time? I might try this hotel again when works are completed to give it a chance.

John S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Pinewood on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Henry Thank you for your feedback in regards to your recent stay at the Hotel. Since October last year the Hotel has been undergoing development works whereby a new floor has been added to the building. The scaffolding has surrounded the Hotel throughout this time however now that we are coming to the end of the development works the scaffolding has been taken down. My apologies in regards to the noise from the contractors, I will certainly communicate your comments to the Site Manager. I am pleased that you found your bedroom clean and warm. As you rightly mention some of our bedrooms and bathrooms are dated and in time we will be up grading them. My apologies about your key not working and that the Restaurant Team were setting up for breakfast whilst you were dining. I will certainly communicate your comments to both my Reception Manager and Restaurant Manager. It is pleasing to read that you enjoyed your evening meal and I will certainly communicate your comments to my Head Chef. Thank you again and I do apologise for the inconvenience caused on this occasion. Kind regards. John Scott General Manager

We picked this hotel for its proximity to Manchester airport. We had a one night stay previous to a flight to Florida. Warm welcome from reception. Good room. We had a meal in he restaurant which was very good. Next morning, easy check out, help with luggage. John Scott, general manager, was particularly helpful. Very good experience.

Celebrated both my Grandparents 90th birthdays here in last six months. Very courteous efficient staff, very hard working committed team. Good food. Drinks okay, perhaps a touch over priced. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Very Comfortable beds. Good tidy facilities. Good breakfast buffet. I'd stay again. Professional outfit. Many thanks.

Stayed here with my husband and it was such a lovely get away. We were greeted at reception by Emily who was so polite and met our every need, every question was answered even before having to ask! The lift was not working and even though our room was on the first floor Emily insisted we left our bags and someone would bring them to us. Had a lovely meal in the restaurant, the Egyptian waiter (forgot his name) is a credit to your team, could not do enough for us. Our room was spotless and very modern. I would recommend this hotel to all my family and friends for the great food, friendly staff, lovely room and good location. I look forward to staying with you again.

Lovely clean place with really nice staff who do all in their power to give good service but try not to die of shock when you order a drink. They seem to be making up numbers from the telephone directory when you get the bar bill.

Gary S, Gloucester, United Kingdom 17/03/2016

Stopped at this hotel for one night after a flight back from Europe. The staff were very polite and courteous . The restaurant was excellent with high quality food and top notch service, nothing was too much trouble! Room was well presented and had everything one needs for a comfortable stay. Breakfast was also excellent, good extensive choice and catered for all requirements, from healthy options (fruit, smoothies, yoghurts etc..) to the full English options. Sat in a nice location, with a pleasant patio & garden (perfect for a cold drink on a summers evening), I would highly recommend this hotel. This was a excellent example of how a hotel should be presented and it's a credit to the Manager and to the Best Western brand.

User 11/03/2016

Wouldn't recommend this hotel what so ever, had an overseas visitor and was totally embarrassed, Gentleman had to carry his own bags upstairs because the lift was not in use, when the booking was being taken not once were we informed that there was major building renovations taking place, we had to ring 3 times to get an email of confirmation of booking took 3 days!!!!! the food was just awful, 'boil in the bag burger' anyone ever had such a thing, hoping the head chef must of had a night off surely the food can not be this bad all the time , and the hotpot just was grey!!!!! woke at 7am workmen were banging !!!! Paying at the restaurant was a joke !!!!! 6 attempts to pay they couldn't get service on the card machine. had to almost go outside

John S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Pinewood on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Guest Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor in regards to your stay at the Hotel. First and foremost I must apologise for the catalogue of issues that you have experienced throughout your stay. The development works started in October last year and are due to finish in May this year. Unfortunately we have been without a lift since January due to the lift shaft being extended to the new 3rd Floor. We do offer luggage assistance to all guests however due to your comments I have emphasised to my Reception Team the importance of making sure all guests are asked or even that we insist that we take guests luggage to their bedroom for them. We have communicated to all booking websites and we also mention to all guests at the reservation stage that the Hotel is undergoing a refurbishment so that all guests are aware, however I will discuss your feedback with my Reception Team to make sure that all guests who are booking direct with the Hotel are being made aware. I will also discuss with my Reception Team the lack of communication via email in regards to you obtaining your reservation confirmation. In regards to your poor dining experience, the Steak Burger is cooked in a water bath for 1.5 hours at 56 degrees whereby the burger is served medium. From your comments I feel that this has not been mentioned to you when your order was placed or that the explanation has not been clear. We have been experiencing various issues with our telephone lines hence why our PDQ machine was not working correctly, this has been rectified now. The contractors should not have started work until 9am, I will make sure that the Site Forman is aware of your comments so that other guests do not experience the same issues as you have done. It does disappoint me that you will not return due to the issues in question. I would like the opportunity to discuss your comments in more detail and restore your faith in the Hotel. I unfortunately do not have your contact details so if you would be so kind and contact me at the Hotel on 01625 529221 or via email jscott@pinewood-hotel.co.uk so that we can discuss your comments in greater detail together that would be appreciated. Thank you again and I do apologise for the inconvenience caused on this occasion. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards. John Scott General Manager

We booked one of the suits at the Pinewood for a 50th Birthday. Well, from start to finish the staff were amazing, nothing was too much trouble! The room itself was 'decked-out' beautifully, the 'in-room' bar was excellent and the buffet food was superb. Just wanted to extend a massive thank you to John Scott and all the staff for making this special occasion one to remember, for all the right reasons! Thank you Justin Covil

Stay for one night. Check in was smooth however lifts weren't working and I had been allocated a room on the 3rd floor!. Laptop, suite case and handbag all dragged by myself to my room only to get there and find that the key card wasn't working. Lucky I spotted a house keeper who was kind enough to let me in the room and then called reception and sorted another key car for me. No apology from reception! I booked a signal room and honestly it was the smallest room I had ever seen, there was no space for my case or anything else. It was a single room and then bathroom and toilet added to it. Basically a small box room. The room deco and the bathroom was old and dated. Really didn't enjoy my stay. Never booking again.

Stayed here for one night as we were in the area for the weekend. Very modern, clean and friendly receptionist. The bathroom and the shower were a bit old and we couldnt really close the bathroom door in our room. The view from our bedroom was scaffolding and the hotel lift was broken. Despite all that, our room was big. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean. Nicely decorated and very modern. So overall, it was a good hotel.

John S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Pinewood on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Guest Thank you for your recent review in regards to your overall experience at the Hotel. From reading your review I can see that the majority of your stay has been enjoyable which I am pleased about. My apologies in regards to the scaffolding and the outlook of the Hotel. We are in the process of building a further 19 bedrooms on the roof of the Hotel which in turn causes disruption as you can imagine, one of which is having our lift out of service due to the lift shaft being extended. The building works will be complete in May this year and the lift will be installed and ready to be used my April this year.

We use this hotel on a regular basis to stay and park when we go on holiday. The hotel is extremely well run with very friendly and helpful staff for which nothing is too much trouble. It has a very good restaurant with a good selection of dishes and a well stocked bar. Following a recent holiday we also stayed on our return into the country rather than drive home. The hotel is currently undergoing building work to add extra rooms . This is being carried in a discrete manner and is not affecting how the hotel operates. As part of this work the lift is currently out of action however there is always someone available to help with luggage if it is needed. Once these works are complete it will make a great hotel even better.

My wife and I stayed here for one night before our flight. The staff were extremely helpful and we had a good welcome. The room was fine though perhaps a bit on the small side and lacked an easy chair. It was very clean and had a super bathroom. The breakfast was very good and hot, unlike some hotels where the breakfast buffet is tepid. There is an option of having your breakfast specially cooked. Presently there are renovations going on but noise did not trouble us and work only started ay 9.00. There is free Wi-Fi and you get free use to a nearby fitness centre. We would come here again.

steve t, Hartley Wintney, United Kingdom 11/02/2016

I've stayed here frequently for the past 5 months, but am now working elsewhere. Would always stay here if I was working close. The main reasons are: 1. Lovely friendly hotel, with great staff 2. Food has always been superb. Great buffet breakfast, with really good ingredients well cooked. One of the best, scrambled egg is simply the best. Evening menu varied, and great value for the quality. 3. On site parking, never had any issues finding a space, easy links, although A34 roadworks cause minor delays. 10 minute walk to station with direct link to central Manchester. 4. Comfortable rooms with good beds, and nice and quiet. 5. Value for what you get. Perhaps a little more than a budget hotel, but this offers so much more. For me no comparison. A great flagship for Best Western hotels. Hope to return soon

I've been to 3 functions over the past couple of months and felt i had to leave a quick review as each visit has been outstanding! I went with my family ( 18 of us including 5 children) on Xmas day and the whole experience was outstanding. The manager John gave us a private dinning room so the children had room to play which was great. The food choice was super and we had no issues with my food allergies or catering for the children. Food was hot, well presented and amazing service throughout. The atmosphere was so festive and we are booking again for next year. I also attended 2 party nights over xmas and both were faultless , great music, 3 course meal, brilliant service with the food and on the bar. Management were on hand the whole evening making sure all went well. Excellent! looking forward to my next visit.

For me this was a great hotel in a great location.. Free car parking, and only 15 minutes from Cheadle/Gatley.. The lift isn't working at present, which was news to me upon arrival.. That said the staff were very helpful with luggage.. The breakfast was nice, a reasonable selection of hot and cold food stuffs.. The room I was in was a little dated, that said the shower was really good! I slept well and despite the renovation going on at the hotel at the moment I did not hear any noise.

User 23/01/2016

I stayed here Friday - Sunday as I was working in the area. Rooms fine, staff friendly but on the Saturday night I got no sleep at all. There was a very loud disco pumping out music downstairs until 1am....and I mean pumping it out. And from 1am - 3am I had people screaming through the corridors, banging on my door! Rather scary when staying alone. I understand some hotels host parties/weddings, but given it affects other guests so much in this one (I was told by a staff member that you can hear the music from every room in the hotel - there is no escaping it) why was I not told about this function on arrival or beforehand! The worst night's sleep I have ever had. I work in this area frequently and will definitely be booking in somewhere else next time!!! Also, the lift was out of order so you need to be fit, goodness knows what disabled customers do! There were also construction works going on with scaffolding outside the hotel and the gym is definitely not 5 minutes away - more like 15! Overall very very disappointing. Worst sleep quality I have ever had in a hotel!

User 16/01/2016

We came to The Pinewood on Saturday 19 December 2015 for our Christmas Party. We arrived at approx 4pm and checked in at reception. Before we went up to our rooms we had drinks in the bar. Our rooms were lovely, nice and spacious, comfy bed and pillows, very clean and tea / coffee facilities. At 7pm we all met in the reception for pre-party drinks before going into the party room. The room was dressed lovely, the tables were fab with lots of Christmassy bits on and hats. The food was probably the best I've ever had at a party night, the turkey and beef were superb. Please pass our thanks on to the and chefs for a fab meal and the hospitality team for making it a really enjoyable atmosphere. A few of us weren't particularly keen on the songs the DJ was playing but you can't please everyone. Could of done with playing more Christmas songs throughout the evening. That didn't stop us though we danced the night away, had a great time and were the last up I think. Breakfast was great, cooked just how we like it (not just showed the pan), good selection of cereals, breads, fruit, meats, juices etc. As much tea and coffee as you required. Thank you to all the staff they are a credit to the hotel, John you have a good team there, look after them.

Shropshireskiers, Shropshire 15/01/2016

This was our third park and fly stay at the Pinewood hotel and was as good as on previous occasions. The charge includes accommodation, parking and taxi transfers to and from Manchester airport. The hotel is undergoing a major extension/facelift so there is a lot of scaffolding on the building. We were allocated an executive room which was of a good size and comfortably furnished, although it was starting to look tired. A hospitality tray is provided as is an in-room safe. The public areas are stylish and comfortable. The restaurant serves good food which is nicely presented. Alcohol prices are as one would expect in this type of hotel. My husband was pleased to see that a bitter ale has been introduced since our last stay. We like this hotel and will continue to use it when we fly from Manchester airport and recommend it. Staff are efficient and friendly. Housekeeping is good throughout the hotel.

Stayed in the hotel for a few times in the last few months. Hotel has nothing special and is under reconstruction. Rooms are little oldfashioned and would be great if matrasses could be replaced. Feels like they have not been replaced in the last 20 years. Great bar and excellent breakfast. Very friendly service. I just book it because it is very convenient for my meetings.... otherwise would never consider to stay here.....

The inside of the hotel is nice - smart restaurant and rooms. Lots of choice (hot & cold) for breakfast but beware that they clear away the hot breakfast food buffet a full half an hour before breakfast stops being served. You have to ask for a cooked breakfast then. Why not just leave it out until the end of service? Looks like they have regular coachloads of Japanese/Chinese tourists staying so make sure you time your breakfast to miss the rush. Staff are all friendly & polite. Would go back if needed to stay in the area again.

Dear Guest Firstly I would like to thank you for your positive feedback regarding your overall experience at BEST WESTERN PLUS Pinewood on Wilmslow I must say it is extremely encouraging to receive such wonderful feedback about the Team and I will certainly discuss your positive comments to them. In respect to the breakfast experience I can only apologise that this part of your customer journey left you feeling disappointed. On quieter days we do however cook our guests breakfast to order. Such large quantities of food is unnecessary to be out on the buffet due to low numbers but I have certainly taken your comments on board. I do apologise for the inconvenience caused on this occasion. Kind regards Lucy Wilson Front on House Manager

After my daughte's wedding on 30 Dec our extended family along with the grooms family decided to take in a NewxYears Eve dinner and Masqurade Ball at Best Western's Pinewood. What a fantastic atmosphere and enjoyed evening by all 15 in our party. The staff were brilliant - obviously the Manager recruits and trains well. Polite, going the extra mile so much so that everyone in our party complimented me on choosing the venue. The evening's organisation was a very slick operation with good timely service for all at the ball, which given a 5 course meal was a well executed feat. Currently work building 19 extra rooms is underway but inside the building you would not be aware of this. Cannot fault this venue and close to airport and Manchester. Well done!

"Christmas Day Lunch"

JAGUAR088, Cheshire, England 03/01/2016

All the staff were very friendly and obliging. Food was very good. Not as good as home cooking but so lovely to have food put in front of you and NO clearing up afterwards! Personally, I would have liked just a plainly roasted turkey. More vegetables needed and more gravy. Roast potatoes were not so good - not crispy like they should be! Having said, the overall meal was very good.

Dear Guest Thank you so much for your overall feedback in regards to Christmas Day Lunch at the Hotel. We have started to call all guests who attended Christmas Day Lunch to receive their feedback whether it being positive or negative. I was working throughout Christmas Day and I personally checked back on all tables to ensure that all guests were satisfied with the food and the service that they received and the feedback I received was very encouraging. I will certainly take your comments on board and communicate your feedback to my Head Chef so that he is aware. It is pleasing to read that my Team came across very friendly and obliging and that you enjoyed your overall meal. Thank you again for your feedback and I do apologise for your concerns raised.

We attended a wedding reception at this hotel and it was ok. Parking was a bit tight, the bedroom was fine, garden was pleasant, breakfast was good. My wife ate the vegetarian option for the wedding breakfast (a curry) and was sick soon afterwards. The bar area was quite small and the choice or beers limited. Overall it's not bad for a one night stay if you're in the area and that's what you need. nothing to get excited about either way.

Dear Guest Thank you so much for your overall feedback in regards to your recent stay at BEST WESTERN PLUS Pinewood on Wilmslow. I do apologise that the vegetarian curry that your wife ate made your wife feel ill. I will certainly discuss this comment with my Head Chef to make an understanding of what may have been in the dish that could have caused this reaction. The parking does get rather tight on some occasions, however we do have 120 car parking spaces which normally is ample. It is very rare that I receive a negative comment in regards to the choice of drinks on the main bar, however I will certainly bare your comments in mind. I do welcome your positive feedback about your bedroom and breakfast, much appreciated thank you. Thank you again and I do apologise for the inconvenience caused on this occasion. Kind regards.

What a lovely hotel this is. The reception, dining area and bar are a pleasant first view when you enter. We stayed here with family as part of the last stage of the new years holiday. Our experience was totally faultless. The atmosphere, the staff and total experience was extremely pleasant.

Over the last few years we have visited this hotel, only for an overnight, on route to a holiday destination. On all occasions we had a superb and friendly welcome experience. We also left our car for the duration of our holiday,were taken to the airport and returned. This was organised by our the tour organiser. The restaurant food and service was excellent and would highly recommend it. This Christmas my husband booked it as a Christmas present to go and see "The Bodyguard" at the "Palace" theatre in the centre of Manchester. We had planned to get a taxi to the centre of Manchester which would have cost approx £30 each way. However we took a walk in the morning to see where we we were and discovered a station. The , returned at a fraction of the cost of at least £60. Have to recommend this hotel for friendliness, cleanliness and professionalism, especialy in dealing with any little problems. High reguards to,I think "Rick" who helped us move rooms. Stacey, the restaurant manager, John,the night watchman and very importantly, John, the General Manager. Not sure of the bar mans name but welcomed us back and remembered the drinks we had ( a true professional) Thorourghly recommend this hotel. sandra

"Christmas works night"

smokiecheshire, cheshire 26/12/2015

We were booked here for our second year for our works party night in the Tatton Suite Three tables in a good location and nicely set with Christmas hats on each chair and a nice selection of party things on table The food in general was good especially for such large numbers my plate for my main course was so hot I couldn't touch it Lovely turkey meal and nice chocolate dessert Sadly for the second year running my colleagues who had the fish were not impressed. The main big negative for us was the terrible DJ when asked if he had any Christmas music his reply was "Christmas? " No The music he played was terrible and many of our party left early One other issue some people from another group who would not stay off the dance floor with drinks!! You really need to police this better Overall we have decided that maybe this year was to be our last.

John S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Pinewood on Wilmslow, responded to this review
Dear Guest Thank you for your overall feedback in regards to your company Christmas Party that took place at the Pinewood Hotel. The feedback from our Christmas Parties has been very positive generally with various companies re-booking for next year due to how much they enjoyed every aspect of their event. I do apologise that one of your guests felt the fish dish was not satisfactory, I will certainly review your comment with my Head Chef. The feedback in regards to the DJs has also been very positive and it would helpful to know which night you attended so that I can look into your feedback in more detail with the DJ in question. I have certainly taking your comments on board in regards to guests taking drinks on the dance floor. As you can imagine it is difficult to police, however this is an area I will discuss with my Team so that we can improve moving forward. I do appreciate your positive feedback about various dishes that you were served and how well dressed the tables were and looked. I'm sorry to read that you have decided not return next year, however I would like the opportunity to discuss matters with you further so that I am given the opportunity to restore your faith in the Pinewood Hotel and continue to welcome your business in the future. Please do contact me at the Hotel at your own convenience, telephone number - 01625 529211. Thank you again for your feedback and I do apologise for the inconvenience caused on this occasion. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards John Scott General Manager

"Too cold for me"

york1, Yorkshire Uk 15/12/2015

I have stayed in many Best Western Hotels, both in the UK and aboard and showed my loyalty card on checking in as I have usually been given an upgraded room. Not so on this occasion. I wasn't too bothered as I was only staying for one night but the room I was given was not at all satisfactory. The bathroom was freezing cold and the radiator not working. I asked at reception if it could be turned on but was told it had been turned off for health and safety reasons. She said she would send a portable heater to the room which I thought would be more dangerous in a bathroom than a radiator. The heater never arrived so I has to suffer the cold. I was expecting hot chocolate along with the tea and c
