Picked this as it was close to a venue for a birthday party in Didsbury, so location was key.

We arrived earlier than permitted check in (having checked before) and the helpful staff on reception showed us to our room and gave us the tour.
We chose the Duplex Room, and it was a good size, with characterful creakiness given the age of the property. The room faced the back of the house, away from the side facing the main road so it was quiet enough.
Breakfast was very good with a range of decent hearty choices, well needed after a big night out.
Very happy with the stay and would recommend.

Room Tip: Room 35 is the Duplex Room advertised on the website - if you are expecting the room with the bathtu...

We stayed here for one night prior to our honeymoon. We live locally and have heard good reviews about this hotel. It's one of the more upmarket ones in the area and we thought we would treat ourselves rather than returning home from our wedding. However we were so disappointed. We had high expectations for the place and when we were shown to our room it was such a let down, it was really pokey and dark plus there was a big stain on the ceiling!
The bathroom was nice with a large bath and the breakfast was lovely. On check out we were not asked if we enjoyed our stay or any other pleasantries one expects from an establishment like this. Very poor in comparison to where we stayed for our wedding and honeymoon out of the 4 hotels we booked for our wedding Didsbury House Hotel was a big disappointment. I'm afraid it gets the thumbs down from us which is a shame as we like to support local business.

We arrived at 8.30pm on the Saturday night as arranged. The Reception area was very impressive, Lovely and clean, well presented and the greeting we got was fantastic, Even down to knowing who we were. Checked in quickly and shown to our ground floor room (24). When we entered everything was beautifully presented as i had asked for. Rose petal turn down on the bed along with a single red rose. Champagne on ice along with chocolate covered strawberrys waiting. The shower was amazing and the roll top bath was huge. In the morning we went down for breakfast which can only be described as fantastic. The service was superb, coffee, toast, plenty of choice in condiments, and a very well presented full English Breakfast. We can't wait to return to this Hotel. I would recomend it to anyone.

I was lucky enough to win a competition and the prize was 2 nights in a hotel of my choice in Manchester. I chose this hotel and without a doubt I chose the perfect place.
A really lovely, boutique style hotel, just a few minutes walk from Didsbury Hight Street with its choice of bars and restaurants and about 20 minutes drive into the centre of Manchester.
We stayed in the Eclectic Room and it was beautiful! Spotlessly clean, very warm and welcoming, arrived to soft music in the room and was stunned by the roll-top bath in the actual bedroom. A lovely touch. Ample towels and toiletries, lovely soft lighting and french doors onto a pretty outside patio!
The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly throughout, nice bar area and breakfasts both days were superb. All freshly cooked to order and excellent choice of menu!
The whole building is warm and inviting, especially on a cold winters weekend in February!
Would 100% recommend this gem to anyone visiting the area! We stayed in room 23 which was quiet and peaceful, although if the outside area had been busy then I guess it may have been slightly different.
Just one small (and its very small) criticism, a distinct lack of space in the lovely bathroom to place your own toiletries, no shelf or storage, just a little ledge at the side of the sink, very narrow.
Loved it and would definately recommend!

On arrival we were very impressed with this hotel.
We were allocated room 10 which is on the ground floor next to the reception area.
If you want a good nights sleep then this is not the room for you!!! There is a constant loud noise which kept me awake all night. When we enquired what the noise was we were told it was the boiler which is housed next to this room. Also we could hear everything from the reception.
The mini bar is very over priced. £5 for a bottle of mineral water!!!!
Overall the hotel is nice but our stay was ruined by the noise so would not return or recommend to anyone. Shame.
