Ivy Mount Boutique

Enjoy a well deserved

break in the great city of Manchester

Hi! I’m Paul, owner of the Ivy Mount Boutique in the leafy suburb of Eccles.

This is how we turned our family home into a family business.

One day out of the blue, my Dad announced that he was going to turn our family home into a Bed and Breakfast – so the Ivy Mount Guest House was born.

My Mum and Dad ran the bed and breakfast for over twenty years, so as a young boy I used to sit in the dining room with the other customers having my breakfast before I started my walk to school – you could say that Bed and Breakfast life is in my blood.

Then in the year 2000, I was all grown up and looking for a project. My parents were of retirement age and were looking for a buyer for the business.

I couldn’t imagine anyone else running it as well as my Mum & Dad had done. It made perfect sense for me to continue running it, so I bought the business from my parents. Fast forward to today and I am married to Gita and have two beautiful children, Macey and Jasmine.

We got the Ivy Mount running so well we bought the two houses next door from our neighbours and built a reception and bar area. From just having 12 rooms, we quickly expanded to 22 rooms and two apartments.

Fast forward to March 2021 when Covid struck, we shut overnight and waved our staff off saying we will see them in a few weeks time. Little did we know, that would be the last time we would ever work with them again. To keep the business alive we changed to selling pastries and delivering around our local area and when that ran dry we changed to delivering our breakfast locally just to keep the roof over our heads.

The house was shut for nearly 18 months. It was a very stressful time but that has led us to where we are today with changing our bed and breakfast with 8 rooms to a room only basis and turning house number 33 and 35 into full houses that we let. Covid has changed everything, so let’s see what the next couple of years holds for us…

The Symbol Of Manchester Is The Bee

The worker bee has a special meaning in Manchester, where it has been a symbol of the city since the Industrial Revolution. Traditionally, they represent the city’s energy and sense of community. 

Bees are featured in Manchester’s coat of arms and on many public buildings. You will see them on lamp posts and bins all over our great city. The symbol of the Bee has really taken off since the Manchester bombing at the M.E.N Arena in 2018. You will see bees in the Manchester Graffiti on the walls of our city. Lots of people have had tattoos with bees on them.
