A few of our friends have used this hotel in the past; we used to live in Manchester and occasionally come for nights out. The location can't be beaten; it's smack in the centre of town, but it's the only good thing anyone could possible say about the place. It's a bit of a running joke amongst our friends, but for normal travellers expecting some kind of quality I would definitely advise them to stay away.
The whole place is in desperate need of gutting and refurbishing; it's hopelessly dated, and stinks of cigarette smoke and toilet bleach. The lifts are creaky and terrifying! We stayed in a twin room; the sheets were clean and the beds were comfortable, which made a change from the last time some of us stayed. The carpets and walls are grubby and the bathroom was rusty, mildewed and generally awful. Extractor was broken so very muggy in there; toilet flush faulty.
The thermostat in the room barely worked so we were absolutely boiling all night; there was a window, but too high up to reach and covered with an old, frayed rug stapled into the wall. Two friends who came round to get ready with us had allergic reactions because of the abundance of dust. Drinks in the bar downstairs are incredibly cheap if you can stand sitting in the depressing place for more than 5 minutes. Have never eaten any of the food there but honestly I wouldn't dare.
For the quality of the stay and cheap price of the room, it was a bit rich that housekeeping were already banging on our door twenty minutes before check out time - frankly the management should pay the guests to stay there.
For somewhere to simply sleep and then get straight out of there the next day it's just about bearable, especially if all the other budget hotels (Travelodge, Premier Inn) are sold out, as they often are - otherwise, avoid like the plague!
