This would only be a hotel I would visit if I need to get the head down with the lads for a weekend or night away. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar area is ok. It's all very tired and the room I had which seemed to be the same as my friends was pokey and bathroom was...

I guess it is fair to say that our standard rooms are not overly large but we also have superior rooms that have a much larger footprint which may be more suitable in the future. Not aware that any of the rooms are damp but will check extracts. On a brighter note it was good to hear that the staff...

This hotel is great for the airport we stayed the night before flying out and had 17 days parking while we were away. A lovely hotel with great transfers to the airport, checking in and out is so easy and close to a few pubs and restaurants if you want to venture out. Although they do sell meals in the...

Thanks for taking the time to write this review and sorry to hear that the TV volume did not meet your personal expectation but do try to please all hotel users some of whom would have been very interested in the football. Noted the comments about food and will review with chef. Paul Rodgers General Manager

This hotel has the most friendly and professional staff although the hotel rooms are quite tired and are in need of general maintenance. The communal areas are clean and tidy with a good atmosphere, as you would expect from this chain of hotels, the breakfast was excellent.

The hotel is actually far better inside than the somewhat 'tired' impression one gets from the outside. However, the bar prices are really expensive and beware of a 'hidden' bollard when entering the car park, especially at night. It is straight ahead when driving in on the level car park area and is not immediately visible However, the car park...

I guess that inside exceeded expectations from the impression formed before you entered the building which is in my opinion a good thing. Not really had other such comments about parking other than a recent one which could be from the same source as it is almost identical in content. Taking a look at this however to see if there...

3 night stay with breakfast. Asked to change rooms because certain furnishings in original room 104 were tatty - curtain linings in shreds and almost non- existent. An embarrassment to the hotel!!

The staff were really friendly on reception and the toiletries in our room were really nice. They are the only positives about our stay. Our room was downstairs in what felt like a basement. The locked door to get into the corridor for our room was an absolute nightmare as our card didn't work half the time. We had to...

Average hotel close to the Manchester airport, but a bit out of Manchester city. outdates and run-down hotel. OK for a night stay, but not for more. Staff is friendly but certainly don;t make the extra step. Breakfast also average.
