“meets basic requirements (nothing more)”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

This student housing facility, managed as a hotel/pension in summer, meets the basic needs: it is clean, there is a kettle with tea replaced daily, cleaning staff services the rooms each day... However the furniture and trimmings is very worn and shabby. Also, I second the opinion that banging doors are noisy.
There is WiFi in the lobby, but it also reached my room, which was a bonus. I was only one floor above the lobby.
I did not get breakfast (they charge 10 quid a day) but other guests there said it was really good.
The location is excellent, very close to Picadilly and the center of Manchester.
I would stay here again as long as I remain on a student's budget.

Room Tip: In my room, on 3rd floor (1 floor above lobby), I could pick up the WiFi signal normally available o...

Minutes' walk from Picadilly Station. Tiny dormitory room, but very sufficient, and great price. One complaint: noisy slamming doors in hallways kept waking me up. It would've been worse if more rooms had been occupied.

These are student halls of residence and as you would expect from the room charges the rooms are very basic; standard single bed but comfortable enough, basic bath room (shower only). Also is a desk/office chair and wardrobe. Room was clean enough but showing good few signs of wear.

But for the cost the location is great, only a 5 minute walk from Piccadilly train station and 5-10 mins from main shops/bars areas. When we were there (weekend) it was very quiet on a night, i.e. no disturbances from either internal or external party people.

Staff in the halls were helpful as were the staff in the adjoining Manchester Conference Centre and associated hotel. Free wifi in the hotel lounge area as welll.

Breakfast was included in my £30 per night deal and was decent enough. Being a self service of hot "full English" ware and also croissants, etc and tea/coffee machines for numerous refills..
I would recommend this for short stay if you are on a budget and do not expect the rooms to be luxurious!

Room Tip: Think all rooms would be quiet.

My friend & I stayed at Weston Hall on a really busy weekend. We were extremely happy with the location, facilities and excellent price. Highly recommended accommodation!

If you don't expect much, you won't be disappointed - decent for the price. My room actually had decent wifi even though they say there is no wifi there. There is also ethernet connection in the room through the uni, which seemed to work. Otherwise, free wifi in the Days' hotel lobby.

It was quite noisy: hallway doors slamming, water running, people chatting outside - bring earplugs.

Staff were so helpful and just deadly for such reasonable prices. I know they were the Days Hotel Staff that are on reception but we never once were left to feel anything but a guest at the hotel....

The rooms were clean and the ensuite was so handy. For the price, what you get is great. I mean how can you complain!! I loved the biscuits in the room, nice breakfast treat!!

Iv stayed in some different places on my travel, for lots of different prices and for some reason this place was one of the best because there were no nasty suprises and it was value for money

Room Tip: Get a BLT in the bar, with a beer!!! Amazing

It's a hall of residence - if you've been a student yourself or visited this sort of flat style hall before then you know the drill. A compact room with lots of storage and an ensuite pod-style shower room, toilet and basin. My room was a little rough around the edges with curtains that didn't quite meet, a missing drawer handle on the bedside cupboard and a stain on the industrial style carpet but it has students living in it for most of the year and it was just cosmetics really. It was cheap, in a good location and I just needed somewhere to crash that wasn't a room with ten other people sleeping in it! A got a night's sleep and privacy and would happily stay again.

Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. Can I ask you to advise me which room you were in whilst here, we can then have a look at the cosmetic issues you encountered in the room, however, I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to welcoming you back to the hall when you next visit Manchester.
