Very comfortable nights stay and a good nights sleep followed by a very enjoyable breakfast served by very hospitable owners. I would say it has to be the place to stay when in the Rochdale area...

Set back from the main road in well maintained grounds, relatively unknown to even the locals, is this beautifully presented guest house. It is a guest house in its truest sense, as for 8 nights we felt like welcome guests staying with old friends. Anita and Paul strike the perfect balance of friendliness and privacy, allowing you real freedom of...

The Villas is a lovely hotel of real character - so very different to the larger chains. The rooms are large, comfortable and sumptuously furnished. The hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was generous and served in a very pleasant dining room. I was visiting to go to the football so only stayed for the one night but would...

What a wondrous stay we had from start to finish – three nights for a family wedding nearby. We agree entirely with every detail of all the previous fabulous reviews.

Staying at The Villas Residence feels like staying in a film set (location scouts take note!), in a really good way. The antiques are jaw-dropping but guests' comfort is top-notch too.The large room overlooked the driveway but was well sound proofed and there was little traffic noise. The bed was huge and comfortable with lovely linen. The wi fi worked...
