As a frequent UK-US traveller, I look for special places to spend a transatlantic stopover night rather than book into a boring airport hotel.
The Wizards Thatch is a true gem and worth the 10 minute taxi ride from Manchester Airport. From the moment you arrive at the thatch covered entrance to when you open up the 300 year old door of your suite you know it's going to be an exceptional visit. I stayed in the Wizardry which is like stepping back in time with a vast variety of historical artifacts openly on display. Although Alderley Edge has a great variety of restaurants, my recommendation would be to grab a curry from the Balti House and a bottle of good wine from Corks Out (both within a 4 minute walk) and enjoy them back in the ambience of your room.
It is very rare to find a 99% Tripadvisor rating - but in this case it is thoroughly deserved.
