“Excellent Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Better than I expected to be honest. I read a few reviews and came to conclusion that the Gardens Hotel sounded a bit like a Travelodge, a reasonable budget priced hotel. Yes it is a little tired around the edges, but it was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The location is excellent, as it is right in the city centre. No need to carry your shopping bags around all day, we dropped ours off and then went back out again! The purpose of our visit was to go to the Palace Theatre and it isn't too far of a walk away. At £45 for a twin room it was a bargain and I would definitely stay there again.

Good Morning and thanks for giving us the opportunity, I am pleased that you thought we were better than expected. As you mention we are a little tired around the edges, We are currently in the planning stages of a refurbishment programme at the hotel so exciting times are to come with new bedrooms and conference facilities. In the meantime we are working hard to keep the hotel as clean and comfortable as possible for our guests and your recognition of this is appreciated.
We hope to see you again in the future. Thanks

Stayed at the gardens at least ten times rooms clean bit dated but its a cheap place if all the other hotels are full or on a low budget breakfast is included if you book from their website lovely breakfast cereal fruit cheeses pastrys as well as full english staff friendly only downfall no loyaltys for being regular customers and putting people forward for custom i think you should look after regular customers in way of a treat every now and then but its worth staying for a place to get ready if your on the town n a place to crawl back too when you have had one too many also great location with being right in centre next to piccadilly gardens

I WAS WHAT YOU CALL A WALK IN CLIENT
walk in at 10 pm late ask for a room for the night and the staff was so polite
kind and welcoming.
the rooms are clean nice and cosy
tea coffee, shampoo soap, tv towels
hair dryer ......
some rooms do not have windows and they do tell you this when you ask for a room
so the choices is up to you
this is a very good hotel in a very nice location
Bravo I will be back

Room Tip: rooms with a window are more expensive. If its just for 1 or 2 night go for it

Very good for the price, rooms could not be faulted and the staff were friendly and nothing was too much travel, will definitely recommend and stay again.
It was very central for our needs,(my son's graduation).


Room Tip: Very spacious

I certainly got what I paid for and the hotel is in a great location. Room was well cleaned with fresh towels every morning but I was an internal room during the hottest week of the year and although a fan was provided it fought a losing battle in the oven like conditions. Would certainly consider re-booking but maybe in the winter!

Room Tip: Don't book an internal room in the summer

Good afternoon, thank you for taking the time to write your review, all guest comments and concerns are taken seriously and action taken wherever necessary. Although you have mentioned we did provided a fan for the room , extra fans / heaters are available from reception. in extreme weather conditions like we have experienced recently , we are unable to determine how many fans etc to place in each room,. We do also have Standard Rooms Avail, each all have natural daylight which may suit your needs rather than an internal room

I have stayed in this hotel a number of times when I go to Manchester is once or twice a year to visit my uncle.
The Gardens is right smack bang in the centre of Piccadilly, so central, 10 mins from train station and 5 minutes from bus station so is very well located.
The hotel is very basic but is clean, staff are very friendly and it is just what you want if you are going for a short visit to this city. We normally only go for night, I was only there this week and we got the room for 2 for £50 which included breakfast. I thought this was excellent value and the breakfast is very nice too.
The rooms could do with a bit of TLC but are functional, it might be an idea to ask for a room that is not internal but then you have to deal with noise from outside if you are staying at the front of hotel so just be warned, it is on the main drag in Piccadilly and quite close to a lively pub so just be mindful of this.
Would I stay in the hotel again, most definetly!!

Room Tip: The internal rooms can be a bit claustrophic so I would try and get one that is at the front of the...
