we just arrived back yesterday (19/6/14) from a national coach holiday & stayed at this hotel for 3 nights,
Are there any window cleaners in Manchester? the windows & net curtains on this hotel look like they have not been cleaned for years! The lift is still out of order no matter what the manager posted in a reply & said it was fixed, its not ! other than that our room (102) was not big enough to swing a cat in , why in this day & age do hotels still insist on a very old tube type small portable in the rooms?, the temperature inside this hotel is unbearable, i spoke to people who came downstairs at 3 in the morning to get outside, you simply cant breathe in the place, this hotel is just a stop off for people flying from manchester airport, there were groups of lads who are working at manchester uni who sat in the smoking area most nights with there own cans & the hotel just supplied them with large ice buckets to keep there cans in , having said that they were fine & didn't bother anyone, just kept in there own company & were canny lads ,
The food was excellent , loads of choice & on the first 2 nights the staff were great, on the third night it went a bit off though, 3 tables in the area where we were sitting had 3 courses each & none of the tables were cleared between courses, you couldn't enjoy your meal anyway as it was just to hot, literally sweat dripping off your nose & on to your meal !! i asked the lad on reception if there was any air con in this building at all he just shrugged his shoulders & said " i think so", the bar area was nice , the drinks were cheap enough ( lager £2.20 a pint during happy hour & £3.20 after 8pm) sat down to watch the football, pulled the big screen down & was looking forward to the game, guess what? had to leave & go outside , it was just to hot , overall, if this place sorted itself out with air con , cleaned the windows it wouldn't be bad, lovely outside area to sit which was handy as most of the guests sat outside de to the heat inside !!
