Having lived in Didsbury for a very long time, we know a lot about Eleven Didsbury Park and its sister hotel, Didsbury House. We’ve stayed at Didsbury House previously and have attended weddings there, and it really, really does have the wow factor. On this trip, we were also attending a wedding in Didsbury and decided that rather than imposing ourselves on friends, we’d stay in a hotel. Didsbury House was fully booked over the weekend we wanted, so we decided to experience the other hotel. And how glad are we that we did, because if anything, it’s even nicer. Located on the same road, it seems a little more private as it’s more set back. It’s a grand old Victorian villa, which has been restored very sympathetically – the decor is amazing and attention to detail is utterly stunning. The garden, which wraps around the house, but with the main part being at the back, is gorgeous, even in December when the trees are bare. Summer must be so beautiful at Eleven Didsbury Park.
However, we had the advantage of it being the start of the festive season, and so communal lounges were decorated with luscious Christmas trees and twinkling lights. Incredibly pretty.
We were super delighted to be advised at check in, that we had been upgraded and were now staying in the suite at the top of the house, with the outdoor bathroom! Luckily, as it was very chilly, there was also an indoor bathroom, but this little private getaway was just ridiculously decadent and lovely. Perhaps a return visit in the summer may be in order.
Staff were exceptional – they could not have been more lovely and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble, meaning that we had the most wonderful weekend stay at Eleven Didsbury Park.
And, the reason for our stay was the West Didsbury wedding of Annalise and Karl at Wine and Wallop, the first celebration of this kind held in the Lapwing Lane bar. It was a fabulous occasion and meant that as well as being a part of this special day, we got to catch up with so many West Didsbury friends. An amazing weekend, all round!
