I have stayed in a few hotels within Europe and as I have been invited here by Marriott I thought I would share my thoughts. The best hotel I have stayed in is The Worsley Country Club, why: The staff are friendly and very helpful, it is within easy reach of the trafford and City centre - which are both excelent for shopping and evenings out (more the City for the evening). The Golf is fantastic and the food is of good quality. The Grandest is The JW in Bucarest very fancy but stay away from the casino!
They are my thoughts if you need some where to stay in The North West of England. I would be interested in hearing from people who have stayed at the resorts in Phuket and Cancum as I may head there this year:-)
