Ivy Mount Guest House
Ranked #1 of 3 Eccles B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 October 2011

location: reachable by metrolink tram (40 minutes) or by train from Manchester Victoria (13 minutes' drive); from Eccles the B&B is located approx. 5-10 minutes on foot. Very well maintained and modern house, very clean and comfortable rooms. The host, Paul, is very nice and helps you out with a wide range of information on where to go and what to do and how to get there. The full English breakfast was freshly cooked and served downstairs in a small breakfast room and was tasty. The only slightly negative points could be the traffic noise if your room's looking towards the road and the showers which might be a little bit too small for a taller person. All in all I can recommend this guesthouse 100%.

I stayed there for 6 nights and this place is excellent. Breakfast in the morning was very good, I felt like home, Paul is a very nice guy, if you need anything, he can (and will) help. Shared bathroom was very compact, but also very clean.
All in all, this was an excellent stay at a great guest house.
Thank you again, Paul.

Was running late on arrival date so rang owner no problem key left in key safe for me. Had room at top of house but it was nice and cool at night and slept well. Breakfast good and freshly cooked. Plenty of information in room about trams, trains and buses into Manchester and owner had made a map to show directions very helpful. Thank you Paul for the welcome and also business suggestions would stay again if in the area.
