On arrival the hotel reception staff could not have been nicer they explained about breakfast. They then explained about the leisure club and pool times as I had a child with me. Within a couple of minutes I was going up to the room. The room was what you would expect from a hotel chain but there was a large flat screen TV which was lovely to watch whilst lying in bed. The bed was very comfortable with the best pillows I have ever had in a hotel, this resulted in a great nights sleep. My only concern was the bathroom, as I have a disability I requested a room to suit me and was allocated a room that was suitable for wheelchairs. Indeed it was there was plenty of space and the bathroom was huge with grabrails around the WC and the sink was accessible for a wheelchair, but there was a high step to get into the shower and there was no seat inside, I found this a little odd as if I had have been in a wheelchair I proberbly would not be able to get in let alone stand to shower, as it was I struggled to access it and getting out was really bad as there was no grabrail on the outside. Breakfast the next morning was totally stress free. We arrived about 9.10am and it was fairly quiet. We were shown to out table and was given a good explaination of what was on offer and where to find it. Food was very nice and there was plenty of it, and there were helpful staff on hand if you needed anything. The leisure club was very nice but on the morning we went the heating was not working so the changing rooms, showers and pool hall were all quite cold. The pool was ok but not to the usual temperature, this did not bother us to much and by the time we came out the showers had started to get a little warmer. Check out was very easy and again the reception staff were very friendly.
Incredibly helpful staff changed booking at short notice to accomodate my daughter coming from France to join my son and I at a wedding in nearby Bolton. She got caught up in French train strike and reception staff were able to help her check her return travel arrangements on line.
They found a catholic church for my son to attend, found a sewing kit when my dress unravelled an hour before we had to leave, helped us book a taxi and when the driver had never heard of the wedding venue looked it up on the internet so we has the postcode for the drivers sat nav.
The room was clean and big enough even with a large teenager on the sofa bed, the pool was an unexpected delight and the food in the Verve restaurant good (although the service was very slow).
Would recommend highly
This is a smashing hotel. A friendly welcome, clean spacious rooms, great service in the restaurant, bar and leisure facility, nothing was too much trouble. Don't miss the volcanic rocks in the verve restaurant, cook your own steak, bought over by the restaurant manager. Good breakfast, great choice of food.

Bury itself is a delight. The food in the market is beyond compare. People are so nice everywhere. Had a fab time.
I stayed here with a group of 12 friends for a break and to go out into Manchester. Overall we had an enjoyable stay but there were a few issues that bring down the general good standard of the hotel. The check in staff and pub/restaurant were excellent and could not be faulted. The pool and leisure areas were all to a very high standard and fairly quiet on the saturday afternoon when we went. The public areas of the hotel are all very modern and clean and there are different areas to get a drink and have a sit down so it doesn't feel crowded. We were given rooms all together and away from the main area of the hotel so it was very quiet and we were all able to get a good nights sleep. We had no issues with the availablity of our rooms and even though we had booked as one group and arrived at different times there were no issues with this.

And on to the problem !

Rooms - the hotel seem to get their priorites wrong within the room. The were a few areas that were very shabby - the celling tiles were stained in the room and the bathroom had cracks in the celling (around the lights above the showers which can;t be that safe !) and dirty grout and stains on the walls. These are all things that could be easily and quickly fixed by the hotel - but instead of doing jobs like this the hotel have put brand new huge tvs in the room !

Breakfast - the food itself was plentyful and of good quality - especially the muffins and cakes ! The service was a bit hit and miss but as we were having a lazy sunday breakfast this didn't matter. There were only a few young staff working who seemed to be very busy. They forgot to come and ask about tea/coffee and we ran out of plates - but on asking these were bought quickly and politly. What I did have issue with was the behaviour and attitde of the restaurant manager/supervisor to her staff. She was giving them instructions very loudly in the middle of the restaurant - usually next to our table ! Rather than have to resort to this and disturb people it would have been better to recruit a few more staff !
I visited this hotel with my husband and young son on 31st May. I had visited previously several years ago but found that common areas had been redecorated. I'm not quite sure about the new decor. It was so dark inside.

Our room was very clean and looked out onto a small river at the rear of the property which meant it was peaceful - no road noise.

There was a fridge in the room (no mini bar though) which I was pleased about as we had brought drinks and snacks with us.

We used the Leisure facilities on the morning after our stay and found the family changing rooms to be of a high standard and staff were helpful and friendly.

Breakfast was good. Not a huge choice of food but perfectly adequate and any problems were rectified quickly (coffee machine stopped working but was fixed within minutes).

Check out was quick and efficient. Overall for the price we paid I can't complain. I would stay there again.
Quite supprised by this hotel. Never been before. This was the closest hotel to Manchester City Centre I could get because of the UEFA Cup. Nice rooms, comfortable, bathroom is a bit small but still nice. Watched the football in the hotel bar, beer is average price. Had a Thai curry for an evening meal, not too bad which was also reasonably priced. Few problems checking in, but that was between the hotel and my booking agent. If travelling by tram from the city centre, it will cost about £5.20 for a taxi. Would reccomend to others if staying in the area.
We have stayed here several times now and really like it. It's close to a good road network, next door to a great pub for a little variety and good food. Also very handy for the Trafford Centre and Salford Quays.

The hotel is always busy, the rooms are clean and the normal type of hotel room you would expect. The reception, bar and restaurant have been updated since our last visit and that has made a difference.

Unlike the reviewer below we have never been faced by the scenes they witnessed. Although there were several weddings going on this did not impact residents there for a quiet weekend. The bar was reasonably priced and the food very good.

Breakfast was a scrum on Sunday but Monday the hotel was quieter and it was a nice leisurely affair.

My only gripe was the monday morning receptionist who was downright surly and obviously need to go back to charm school. that aside the rest of the staff were great and worked so hard over an extremely busy holiday weekend.
We've stayed at the Village several times and enjoyed clean, spacious rooms and value for money. To get the cheapest prices do not book direct with the hotel but go through the central on-line booking system for Village hotels. For not much extra we also up-grade to superior rooms.

The leisure facilities are superb! They can get busy at popular times but early and late on we found them to be quiet.

The downside? The bar always seems to have just 2 staff on and at busy times that is no where near enough. Big queues form so be prepared to queue or alternatively go across the car park to the nearby pub for really nice food. Also breakfast is self-service and again at peak times long queues form and food tems often take time to replace.

But overall good value for money.
Booked a 2 night stay to attend a family wedding (elsewhere). Lobby and restaurant appear to have been upgraded to a modern style, that is, dark! Lobby had plenty of chairs and tables. Rooms could have been cleaned better. Chambermaids ignored "do not disturbed' sign. Could do with the décor being updated as they are rather tired and tatty. No radio or alarm clock in room. Receptionist failed to give us any information about facilities or timing of breakfast etc. Plenty of car parking so that isn’t a problem but disabled access is not the best, with elevator requiring a walk to get to it, and didn’t seem to want to work efficiently. Without use of disabled elevator a lot of steps to climb to get to reception as it is on the second floor. First floor houses swimming pool, gym and café. They only one elevator in the hotel itself.

Evening meal in restaurant is only average with service slow and we were not informed of the specials. Breakfast on weekends is busy and not very good, if you arrive at the wrong time. Coffee machine is too complicated; a machine designed for staff to operate! Breakfast is allegedly cooked to order during the week but much of it appeared to have been left standing!

We only paid £59 a night for B&B for two so in terms of value you can’t complain as you are not likely to get a price locally. However, you require a car as it isn’t near any other amenities.
Food quality very good
Swimming pool, Gym
Thursday night was karaoke-night so I could not sleep because of the noise.
Negative point : no minibar in the room.
We have just returned from a two night stay at the Village hotel in Bury. The location was picked as we have friends who live near by. I was slightly nervous due to the not so brilliant reviews on TA, but I found a great deal on Laterooms which was 2 nights B and B, with dinner on the first night for £139 (for the 2 of us!), which I thought was a bit of a steal. The meals were lovely and the bed was comfortable and there was full use of the health club which included a swimming pool, sauna and a steam room. Great if you can get it at the right price!
The Hotel is part of the De Vere group oddly I have an aversion to "corparate hotels" I do not know why and it is irrational as most places are.
Any way I was quite surprised the room was standard nothing special nothing adverse either. The leisure facilities are fine sauna steam room gyms pool etc.
What seperated this hotel was the staff they are genuinly friendly and helpful. As I was attending a function i cant comment oin the restaurant save to say thet the menu at the function was fine the bar wsas not a rip off which is what normally mars a place.
Access is ideal straight off the m66 junction 2.
Just got back from a last minute weekend break here and had a great time. Had promised the kids a weekend's camping trip but we chickened out as the weather turned fowl, and we hunted for an alternative to the camping experience on the eve of our break and came up with this.

We got a great DBB deal for 2 nights for £129 for the 4 of us (2 adults + 2 kids),(kids ate breakfast for free but we needed to pay for their evening meal in the restaurant, this was very reasonable at around £4 each). We had a nice spacious room with a double bed, bed settee for the 2 kids and a table and 2 chairs. The bathroom had both bath and shower and the room was clean and modern in decoration. We loved the pool and leisure facilities. The hotel has a huge gym with seperate ladies gym if you prefer. We found the service to be excellent throughout and wouldn't hesitate in returning to this hotel, or maybe we'll try one of the other hotels in the Village chain next time.

On the whole, we did this weekend on a tight budget and spent our days exploring the local Lancashire countryside and put our NT membership to good use - Meaning the weekend came in under budget with 4 happy people. What more can you ask for? :-D
We paid £59 per night for a twin room including breakfast.
At this price, the accommodation was on a par with similar alternatives e.g: Travelodge et al.

The room was not huge by any means, but pretty clean & with a superbly powerful shower. The bed did seem somewhat older than the hotel itself (built 2001) but wasn't uncomfortable. Personally, I didn't think there was any difference between a duvet & a quilt, but we certainly had one or the other!

The main benefit of staying here is the free access to the pool, jacuzzi, steam room & sauna which were quite satisfactory.

Breakfast was fantastic for the price paid, but I would have expected perfection if I'd paid the ad hoc price for it ( £9.95).

One thing that might have irritated some more than others was the music from the bar which went on fairly late. Fortunately we were tired/merry enough to get to sleep in spite of it.

Bury town centre is walkable but if you're going to Gigg Lane for the footy you'd have a fair old hoof.
This is typical hotel in the Village chain. Excellent leisure facilities including pool, spa, sauna, gym and squash courts.
The main entrance approach is up a large flight of steps which may be a problem with heavy suitcases. There must easier access from the side but it's not immediately apparent. The car park is large and generally busy with leisure club members' cars.
We booked this hotel through and managed to get a DB&B for £144 for two nights which is £44 cheaper than the price quoted to us by the hotel booking service.
Handy for a trip to Manchester city centre. A taxi costs about £20 but a cheaper alternative is to use the tram from Bury station. We stayed here after going to a concert at Manchester MEN and a shopping trip to the Trafford Centre and because we like the good economy and usual good service these hotels provide.
Salingers restaurant in the hotel provided us with an excellent evening meal and the breakfast buffet offered a good choice of cooked or cold fare.
The Village Pub is a bit drab. Loud football matches on Sky TV and a smokey atmosphere didn't encourage us to eat in here. We went to the large Pub opposite the hotel and had a decent meal smoke-free when the hotel restaurant wasn't open.
The staff are generally friendly and efficient.
We had to move rooms because the first room had a toilet that wouldn't flush. The second room was ok, though the shower heat control was broken but luckily not too hot and the bed creaked like an old rocking chair! Rooms are spacious and air conditioned with TV and tea/coffee making facilities and the second had a mini fridge.
Modern decor and a comfortable lobby area. I would use this hotel again for any future mini-breaks in the Manchester area.
I went here with my husband (i'm 28, he's 35) and we both had a great time. I don't understand how anyone couldn't like this hotel. Looks amazing from the outside- very grand and inside is even grander. Lovely, modern, spacious rooms and the a la carte food in the restaurant was gorgeous. Then there's the pool- wow. It's a big pool, very clean and very well maintained. Sauna and steam room were also good. I liked the fact there was a snack bar as well as a bar with a bar menu and posh restaurant too - offered lots of choice. Found the staff to be really friendly and pleasant too.
There was karaoke in the bar and a good atmosphere which was great.
This was my second visit here and i am sure i will return for a third.
Stopped in a twin room for one night with a friend for a couple of pamper/shopping days. Arrived early and was able to go straight into the room. Booked a taxi to Bury which came in a couple of mins had a great time shopping. Back to the hotel and spent a while in the room which was relaxing, nice bathroom too. Had an excellent meal in the restaurant after a drink in the bar. Spent the next day in the swimming pool area after a good breakfast, and had lovely treatments in the Spa. Altogether a most enjoyable time at a great hotel which we got really cheap on the internet. Only complaint was the noise the lift made in the night, would ask to be further away from it next time.
We stayed at the Village hotel for one night (a Friday night). We stayed in a very spacious superior double room. The room was quiet, clean and very nicely decorated.

We had a meal in the hotel restaurant which was reasonably priced and well made- the service was a little slow, but to be expected for a Friday night. The bar was comfortable and also offered a nice relaxing place to sit and have a drink. The breakfast was excellent, though the rashers of bacon were welded together!!

We thought this may just be another bland hotel, but every aspect of the hotel was excellent. We've just stayed in a top De Vere hotel and both said that we'd prefer to stay here again!
