Firstly, the staff are great which saves it from a 'dreadful' rating. I had a phone call after booking, that was regarding my additional request for an accessible room. This was friendly & helpful. On arrival, the welcome was warm & friendly. In fact all contact with the staff was good. Unfortunately, that was as good as it gets. There...

We aim to notify anyone with a disability or impairment in advance of their stay, in this circumstance after discussing this situation with our receptionists this was circulated to you, but I...

First time here 17-18 Feb 2016. Car park FULL but a function was on! Found the economy rooms on top floor, quite a walk but perhaps all the stairs could get me fitter! NOT ensuite unfortunately but ok for the price. Two shower rooms cum toilets at one end of corridor, bathroom with toilet at other end of corridor. All...

Dear Cb from Wales As you can appreciate we are a very busy hotel with regular functions taking place and this can sometimes lead to low availability, we do aim to offer advice to those who have unfortunately not been able to find a place as to where they can park temporarily until our functions have finished. We do have...

I was here just for a night. The lady at the reception was very warm and kind. She showed me to the room as the way to the same was a bit confusing (a few parts were under construction) Since I was traveling from Spain, I did not have the UK charger. The lady immediately gave me one when I...

Damp smell, creaky floorboards, really dated, no wonder they ask for the payment as soon as you arrive as you would go somewhere else. The only reason we stayed is that we had tickets for the Apollo and the show started within an hour of arriving so no time to change hotels. Couldn't wait to book out the next morning...

Dear Michael We are very sorry to hear you were dissatisfied with your visit, we do take pride in offering a good service and value for money. Having only recently acquired the hotel we are gradually refurbishing the rooms, we hope this will not deter you from staying with us in the future. Kind Regards Zachary Cairns

It's surprising how such places continue to survive through tough times. Though there is little competition in Stockport it's true, the Davenport is desperately in need of major investment in all departments to compete with the few competitors it has. There is nothing complimentary to say except to set your expectations low to avoid disappointment.

Staff are friendly, which is the only thing I can say positive about the place. Room is boiling hot with a large red ho watert pipe running through the length of it. Wall paper peeling off the walls. Patches of damp in every corner of place, coupled with a musty smell. Restaurant is only open Monday to Thursday.

Dear David We are very sorry that you felt dissatisfied with your room during your recent visit even though we moved you to another room as soon as possible when you made us aware of the damp smell. The dampness was caused by storm damage which affected a small area of paper to peel; the damage has now been rectified....

We wanted a budget place to stay to visit family. The two rooms we had were both pleasant, warm and comfortable (both en-suite). They both had old decoration but this really isn't a concern, it was still tidy and welcoming. Staff very friendly. Will use again if visiting the area.

Staff welcoming Entrance looked promising Once you go up stairs it changes into the film "the shining". The room looked like it hadn't been redecorated for 20+ years, damp and dated, stains on the sheets with matching stains on the mattress, no en suite, the toilet was down the corridor, wife too afraid to use in the night.

Reviewed 8 November 2015

I was very pleased with my stay. Although the hotel would benefit from a refurbishment my room was warm, clean and comfy. VERY generous tea and coffee supplies (best I've ever had). Only downside was absence of en-suite facilities but there were plenty of public ones and, heck, the room was very reasonably priced. Would always used again
