“Nice stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Only stayed here one night on coach holiday. Quick check in, lovely reception area. Room nice and bed very comfortable. Room was clean and of a good standard but was little put off when I found a previous guests smelly old sock under the bed! which was a shame as the standard of cleanliness was overall pretty good. The hotel is in a nice central location. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and staff very attentive. Had good nights sleep and comfortable stay

Room Tip: Check under bed!

We stayed for one week at the end of May for a conference. The hotel was very accommodating and allowed us to bring a kitten with us. The staff were very welcoming and really looked after us well. The buffet breakfast was consistent each day and offered lots of choice. The hotel was very clean and overall we could not fault it. Next time we need to stay in Manchester this will be our first choice of hotel.

We were slightly concerned by some of the reviews for this hotel but didnt need to be. We stayed after a visit to see Ant and Dec at the phones 4 u arena. Good impressions on arrival. Multi story car park next door (15% discount if staying at the hotel). We arrived just before 12 and our room was ready. We booked a family room and this was one of the best we'd stayed in (better than most 4 and 5 star hotels we have stayed in). The room consisted of a lounge area with large flatscreen tv, a bedroom with good sized bed, tv and en suite bathroom and another sperate room with bunkbeds for the children and their own tv and bathroom. So for £159 we had a 3 roomed suite, dinner and breakfast for 4. Dinner and breakfast were great, so was the service. We also used the small swimming pool which my boys loved. Overall a great hotel, in a good location with fantastic family rooms.

Staff were very welcoming and efficient on arrival. The room was large enough for two, comfortable and clean . The view unfortunately was a brick wall but at least I was not overlooked., and it was a budget room.
The downstairs facilities and reception rooms were good and well decorated. The food was reasonable and was impressed that a friend who was a coeliac was excellently catered for ,with a good selection., with special dietary food.
It was great being so near the shops and would probably visit again in the future.
