Having just stayed at the Ivy Mount I feel incredulous about the very positive reviews for the guest house; either we are extremely fussy (we are not) or there are two Ivy Mount guest house's and we stayed at an inferior one! No just checked the address it is the same place.
I booked this place on the strength of the excellent reviews, what a mistake. we booked an en suite room and on arrival were shown into a room which could be described as en suite in that it had a shower and wc; the fact that these were the size of a large wardrobe and enclosed in a perspex screen which had an twelve inch gap around the top was somewhat alarming. How this arrangement passed building regs is a mystery.
The room was a bit shabby, stains on the carpets and poor quality furniture, but at least the bed was comfortable and it had a good quality TV.
Paul the owner is a friendly chap and is helpful with directions and information, he also is the cook and his breakfast was ok.
The breakfast room is tiny (three tables) while we were having breakfast some other guests came down expecting breakfast an were told to come back in half an hour.
I must say that if we had not been in such a rush(we had to be at the theatre shortly after arrival) and the fact that I had already paid by card over the phone we would have walked out. I suppose we have learned a lesson which is you get what you pay for and for £60 quid dont expect much.

I was looking for a place that wasn too expensive and close to manchester.
The Ivy mount was not only close but very accesable, with the metro and bus service very close by to take me into the city.
The staff were extremely kind, willing to go the extra mile to cook lovely food, give directions and provide great service of the best quality i have seen.
The rooms themselves were very well kept with a well lit, ventalated and clean presence.
I felt the rooms were very comfy and the inclusion of a folder containing taxi services, nearby food outlets and other helpful information was well thought out and detailed for any traveller.
It was a pleasure to stay and i would highly recomend staying there.

I stayed at the Ivy Mount Guest House as I had to spend 4 days at Salford hospital as an out-patient. It was an ideal place to stay as the owners were extremely friendly and helpful and it's an easy walking distance from the hospital. The bedroom was clean and comfortable; the ensuite shower room small but clean. The good breakfast set me up for the day and it was great to come back to a bowl of soup.
