Whatever reviewers say about this place it does a job by providing reasonable overnight accommodation with meals and drinks with car parking at a very low price. I don't know where you can match it elsewhere in Manchester. Yes, it has flaws and if I had to pay twice the price that I did pay then I would be twice as critical. My wife and I had DB&B deal for two nights for £116. Drinks were on top after one 'inclusive' bottle of wine and another that was 'complimentary'!! The breakfast buffet was fine - fruit, yogurt, good bacon, excellent sausages, good coffee. The dinner buffet comprised good basic ingredients even though choice was very limited and much of it had been kept hot for far too long. Most of the staff that I met in the bar and restaurant - Robin, Sean, Susan and others were extremely pleasant - but the guy who checked us in needs some training in customer relations. As for state of cleanliness, our room could have done with a deep clean but it wasn't what I would call dirty. The hotel itself is spacious and must have been very grand in it's earlier days. It will never become your holiday hotel and you'll have a little grumble when you stay, But all in all it will give you good value if you keep your expectations in line with what it is - a basic standard hotel for the budget traveler.
