Needed a quick heads down before a 6:25 am business flight to Iceland. arrived at 8pm to a teenage receptionist who thought it more important to answer the phone (rather abruptly) than properly serve the two fantastic ladies in their dotage who were in front of me and piled high with animal print bags and a sense of adventure, clearly on their way to a high old time. I was latterly handed a key and pointed towards a stair case ( by the erstwhile teenager still enraptured in said phone call).. this lead to a corridor which grew increasingly swampy and mouldy ... and a Rigsby designed room with WET pillow cases - I tried to open the window - the damp curtain fell off onto me like a scene out of Psycho. I tried to ring down to reception to no avail. So I trudged back down to be given a second key . this room was 27 degrees - hot yoga territory! the air-con didn't work and the ground floor window opened pretty much onto the motor way - I suffer from asthma a bit so the choice between a very damp room and these exhaust fumes was interesting . I tried to ring reception using the 'reception' button on the phone --- nope= constantly engaged . trudged back down to reception where I was told -"them phones don't work you ave to press zero ( Me "I wasn't told this ) "you should know that" .....(me) "why is it so hot and my air con doesn't work"... ( reply)has it ( the aircon) got a band-aid on it - well that means it doesn't work.....brilliant - Thank god for George who was a star and at least new that he was working in a hotel full of paying guests and tried to make my night more comfortable .Thanks George ! but no thanks to Etrop Grange - I hope those Ace ladies had a fantastic holiday despite this pretty low level start. Run Away !!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Etrop Grange is a gracious Grade II listed Georgian Country House originally built in 1780 by school teacher William Moss and although located just a short distance from Manchester Airport, is anything but an airport hotel.Originally known as Moss House, the hotel was renamed Etrop Grange in 1984 by the owners after a local area called Etrop Green. Etrop Grange first opened for business in November 1985 as a fine dining restaurant on just the lower level and was slowly converted into a hotel over the next 13 years with a £3 million refurbishment. The Etrop Grange still retains it's Georgian charm with its stately facade matched by a luxurious interior of decadent chandeliers, heavy drapes and marble fireplaces.Due to modern intervention the hotel is now ideally located just two minutes from Manchester Airport and the M56, and is one of the few hotels in the area with no overhead aircraft noise making it an ideal hotel for business and leisure alike. Offering complimentary transfers to and from the airport and airport railway station (between 06:00 and 22:00), along with complimentary parking and WiFi for all guests, Etrop Grange is the perfect place to spend a relaxing day or night whatever the occasion. ... more less
