Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Grounds are kept to a very high standard and are a pleasure to enjoy. Staff are friendly and helpful, and seem reasonably relaxed. The rooms are clean and reasonably kept with a TV, kettle and the usual amenities but they are rather basic and show signs for wear and age, could do with a repaint in areas and in suits are in need of a fix up to cover rust and wear.

All in all. A very reasonable price for what you get and a nice place to bed, clean standard rooms just a little dated.

Was further out of town than indicated cost a lot on taxi fares. There is only one chair to sit on. Towel rail broken/ non-existent. TV only shows BBC1, and there's nowhere comfortable to watch it for 2 people. A toilet roll holder would have been preferred to toilet roll round the floor. The room was far, far too hot, and the radiator regulator was broken. We didn't know that you had to specifically ask for the bed to be made. Although staff had been inches room to clean mugs and replenish coffee, milk etc

Another good if short stay at one of my favourite budget venues. Nice quiet atmosphere. Usual COVID-19 precautions you expect these days. This is a great location for us. Martin at breakfast is a lovely fella. The only problem, as in other hotels, can be unthinking fellow guests - the room directly opposite started playing loud music at 6.30am. Just unnecessary. So I knocked and politely asked them to turn it down.

Needed somewhere cheap for one night near the Christie Hospital. The Britannia last time was awful so I was willing to pay a little more or go further afield to avoid that again. Luther King House was so cheap it put me off at first, as it was too good to be true. I had searched for somewhere with parking, WiFi and breakfast included so when the double room came up at £32.13 I thought there had to be a catch - maybe it isn’t en suite? I checked and it was - it is college type accommodation so that’s why it’s cheaper. But the facilities were better than expected. The room was big enough, the bed comfy, it had a tv and even had biscuits with the tea and coffee making facilities! The location was quiet and rooms are on first or ground floor around a cloistered quadrangle with a little fountain in the middle.

The continental breakfast had so much choice I couldn’t have eaten more even if they’d had a fry up! It was served in a lovely dining room with an extremely cheerful, chatty host who was keen to make us feel at home and tell everyone all about Manchester.

I have stayed in much worse places for double the price of this room. Highly recommend.

Needed to stay in the south of Manchester and chose Luther House based on a recommendation of a friend. Unfortunately either he was drunk or they have graded rooms based on how you book. I was given a room on the ground floor next to the stairs and the exit door leading to the garden. Unfortunately this meant I was constantly hearing the thunder of footsteps going up and down the stairs coupled with the endless loud creaking of the door as it opened and closed. The room itself was quite basic with TV is on the same side of the room as the bed, which meant you couldn't really watch TV in bed. The wash basin was separate to the toilet, there was also no light near the wash basin which made it tricky to shave as the mirror was shaded by a protruding wall.

Halfway through the evening the radiator went stone cold, and the fact that the room was next to the exterior door, made it go cold pretty quick, not to mention that the windows had no double glazing. I tried to call reception but got no reply so made my way across, only to find a sign on the desk requesting to take a seat and wait for the person at reception. After waiting almost 20 minutes, he finally returned and promptly handed me a convector heater to use.

The only positive thing about Luther King House is the breakfast which although a bit sparse, was served by a very friendly chap, eager to help. On checking out I handed my keycard to the lady at the desk who took it without the slightest word of thanks or whatever. Not a hotel I'd recommend to anyone.

Stumbled across this on booking.com as the Premier Inns I usually stay in on work trips were too expensive or full. Magic place, with the feel of a friendly student accommodation hall. The courtyard and gardens are truly an oasis of calm just off the Curry Mile. The library is the perfect place to do some work and the bedrooms are basic but spotlessly clean with good bed linen. The breakfast buffet is a feast and the chef is totally charming, and so friendly and helpful. A perfect ambassador for Manchester for the interesting multi-cultural guests of all ages staying there. I was held up in a meeting and missed breakfast and when i told him this later, when he asked about my day he said 'You should have come and found me in the kitchen. I would have got your breakfast no matter what time it was.' I will definitely be back again. A real home from home.

My wife and I stayed here in March. We had stayed here twice before, without issue. On this occasion we were given room 715 which was obviously a single room that they had tried to make into a double. The bed was against the wall on one side which meant the person sleeping on that side had to crawl up from the foot of the bed. Despite it being cold and rainy, we had to keep opening the window as the radiator could not be adjusted and the room was stifling. The bathroom was small and the sink was tiny. The toilet had a poor flush and there was not even a small shelf for us to put our toothbrush on. We were provided with 2 bath towels, one hand towel, a bathmat and 4 sachets of shower gel.
Breakfast was good but over the weekend a large group had been booked in so that all the tables were taken as soon as breakfast started and the queue was out of the door. The kitchen staff (who were lovely) had apparently not been informed in advance and struggled to keep up with replenishing items.
It was annoying to learn that other guests who had booked for one night had been given the bigger rooms, when we were staying for 4 nights and were given the smallest of rooms. Overall, we were disappointed and will not be staying here again.

Was attending a gig in Manchester so decided to find a cheap / affordable place to stay as we didn’t need a massively ‘fancy’ place to stay. lovely location as it’s only a 10’min Uber / 20 min walk to Oxford Road, but you also feel out of the way of the hassle of the city. the courtyard is so peaceful to sit out with a coffee, and feels like you’re abroad!

lovely fella in a white shirt that was always smiling and offering things for breakfast, truly an asset to the place.

didn’t expect too much from the breakfast given how cheap the stay was, but a lovely selection of continental breakfast, cereals, fruit, pastries, toast etc, juices etc. really enjoyed it!!

the bedrooms were basic but the beds were so comfy and the room was spacious!! window didn’t stay open, but we just lodged something there and it was fine. :)

would honestly stay here again if we came to Manchester as it’s deffo worth the money considering you’d pay 3x this for a standard Premier Inn with no outdoor space, no breakfast etc.

thank you to the lovely reception staff and gentleman in the white shirt!

Enjoyed the included continental breakfast, the coffee is exceptional.
Lots of free parking and lovely gardens to sit and relax, many regular busses into the City centre - only £5.30 for a day saver.
The staff are all helpful very friendly too.
Ok the rooms are a little tired, but comfortable beds, good shower and clean rooms.
We are really enjoyed our stay, for a bargain price.

Not even 1 star is worth it!!
I tried this hotel on the advice of friends because I’m in Manchester on a regular basis. However this hotel shocked me big time. I’m in room 714; the window can’t get locked, the door frame has fungus and the shower couldn’t get warm. But this wasn’t all. The bed was dirty, the pillows smell bad, the chair in the room contains sperm cells (I guess) and the shower tub was rotten. I want to have a different room.
When the receptionist walked with me to check the shower, the door couldn’t be opened bec the batteries in the door system were empty and she said; I’ll give you a different room for 1 night, I’ll let the shower get fixed, but than you can go back. Anyway.
I got a new room; 713. A bit cleaner, better shower tub, the window can be locked but damn this is again not worth the money! Dirty bed, rotten window frames, dirty shower, dirty chair, dirty everything! Oh and the curtain fell off.

A hotel can be cheap, but it should at least be CLEAN and the paint from the window frames shouldn’t fall off!

Decided to book a different hotel and spent a little more money.

Hi. I am a woman over 70 years old who lives in rural Wales. I have stayed at Luther King House and would do so again on my own with no anxieties at all. The short walk to and from the bus stop to travel into Manchester centre is well lit . The grounds of the property are well lit and once inside the building the staff are friendly and helpful and the whole atmosphere is welcoming and non threatening. It has an international clientele many of whom are strangers to the UK.

Do i need to take my own toiletries, towels and a hairdryer? X
Answer from Khatpandwa
London, United Kingdom42 contributions29 helpful votes
Towel & shower gel is provided. Hair dryer most likely provieded as well. Although I have stayed there 4 times, unfortunately I have forgotten. Reception telephone land line is available. However, in my experience, they never anwser a telephone call. So it's hard to ask a question. I suggest ask them by email, about hair dryer. Travelling from manchester city centre to airport, this location is about half way. Walking distance from main bus lines, restaurants, super markets, petrol pump and green parks. I like its location. Sorry about a late reply.

Yes Eggs are available on the counter already boiled. The buffet breakfast is mostly cold with exception of porridge, toast and coffee/tea. The selection is very good considering the price. Yogurts, fruit, cereal, muffins, ham, cheese fruit juices etc.
