Hotel Football & Café Football Old Trafford Manchester Review

Hotel Football & Café Football Old Trafford Manchester Review: February 2018

Manchester United’s super star players, full back Gary Neville and retired winger Ryan Giggs, continue their play of the pitch and have teamed together to launch the football themed GG hospitality brand which encompasses the Hotel & Café Football brands.

Located smack bang opposite Old Trafford Stadium, the football themed hotel and café are looking to score winning goals and become a champion place for guests to play and stay.

I loved the ladies on reception enthusiastic, energetic and excited to pass on their passion for the place. Our game began heading on up all the way up to the dizzy heights of the eighth floor to executive room 801.  Back of the net…Gooooooooal – what a winning view – Breath-taking brilliance!

The well-appointed executive room was roomy, with a funky brightly coloured seating hub, with flat screen television, ideal to kick back, chill and catch up on some sports action.  The welcome card and cute chocolate footballs are a nice touch.

The Ryebeck Hotel Review

The Ryebeck Hotel Review: February 2018

Built in 1904, by prominent local builders G.H Pattinson, and formerly known as Fayrer Holme, The Ryebeck country house hotel has an enviable postcode located within five acres of gardens overlooking Lake Windermere.

Sympathetic, yet extensive renovations reflect and retain the original features and historical charm by combining contemporary and traditional to create an amazing Arts & Crafts decor with a quirky eclectic feel, which provides a unique space for guests to relax, reflect and recharge.

Delightful Duncan, the hotel manager, was the first face, that I saw, upon entry into this spectacular hotel, an opulent yet unpretentious, homely, warm and inviting place to be.

Checked in to one of the four gorgeous Grand rooms in the main building and they live up to the expectations of their Cumbrian dialectal name being “reet grand”, if anything it is an understatement.
