Chose this hotel for an overnight stay for the football match. A good price for our stay. The not so good aspects were poorly positioned a/c units in rooms ie over beds so was too noisy so needed to be switched off which defeated the purpose. There was no fridge in room either. Ask to be put on the non...

A fantastic place to stay by the quays and Old Trafford(although not a United fan!). Everything was pleasurable with a nice room and courteous staff. The only downside was the quality of breakfast - more variety needed. Would stay again for a walk along the canal at night.

Another pleasant stay at this hotel, this time had a room on the 6th floor overlooking Old Trafford. Friendly reception, comfortable room and hotel is a convenient walking distance to the Lowry Centre, or tram if you want to go further afield. Several restaurants within walking distance too. Nothing exceptional about the inclusive breakfast, a problem with the coffee machines...

I was surprised to find this hotel was in such a good spot whilst still having parking. A very reasonable £3 overnight parking charge was no problem. Breakfast was what you expect from these places and wasn't that great in all honesty, especially as the room rate was quite high. A good spot for a nice walk down to media...
