Enjoy a well deserved break in the great city of Manchester
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 a 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 called Macey and Jasmine.We got the Ivy Mount running so well we bought the two houses next door of our neighbours,and built a reception and bar area,so from just having 12 rooms we quickly expanded to 22 rooms and two apartments and 8 staff.
