“Not That Nice And Not Recommended”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2011

We stopped here for 1 night due to seeing a concert at the Bridgewater Hall. Truthfully I wished we had stayed in the Premier Inn! We booked 2 rooms connecting and when we arrived were told that we had not booked this. We were told however that we had booked a room on the lower floor which we did not? Even though the hotel said we had booked a room on the lower floor they decided to put us on floor 6 (which happens to be the highest floor in the hotel). The staff member that checked us in was not very helpful and everything seemed like it was a problem. She even told us that for our troubles atleast our room faced onto the canal however when we got to our room there was no canal view! All we could see was a brick wall! Our room stank of a damp sweat type of smell. We thought it had something to do with the shower curtain in the bathroom so we had to had the window open as wide as possible for the duration of our stay. The rooms are extremely small. Breakfast was ok. The only thing really good about this hotel is that it is very close to the Bridgewater Hall so if you are going to see a concert there its only a 2 minute walk! Have stayed at the Jurys Inn in Newcastle in the past and really enjoyed it. I would personally not recommend the Jurys Inn Manchester and will not be staying at anymore Jurys Inn Hotels in the future.

Room Tip: Do not choose a room on the 6th floor. All you can see if a brick wall from your window!

The staff at the reception desk were very friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel was only 3 minutes walk from the city centre. I paid for 66 gbp for a Sunday night, it was worth it.

I arrived with my partner on Monday 24 October for a short stay whilst being on a Granada studios production. This was for 2 days and would have extended to 3 if we was needed. Thank god that did not happen as this place was awful.

To start with I will say the room was nice and fresh and clean and the hotel looks welcoming but looks and appeal can be deceiving.

First of all we was shocked to find although the safety deposit box was free from reception if you lost your key it was a whopping £250 deposit, yes £250 I am not kidding you. That to us was extreme as no replacement key for a safety deposit box would ever cost that much maybe £25 and up to £50 but no more its just extreme greed. We had to for one day for our passports but soon gave it back as we couldn't pay it if it had been lost and wouldn't have paid that much anyway and on doing so was told which was not done at the beginning when given the key that we had to have a master key first which took a sloppy and grumpy worked receptionist 20 minutes to do so.

The rooms well the key had to be recharged one day it it somehow would not let us use it for the lift (yes you needed it for the lift) the place was like a high security prison.When we reached are rooms tired from a 3 hour and a half journey from Skegness we found No bottled water in our rooms, the pillows with holes in them and the bathroom with soap and shampoo that didn't lather up well, a toilet that made a lot of noise when flushed so it woke the other person up in the middle of the night if you went, a view not to die for meaning a stinky canal and opposite offices meaning to get any peace and privacy you needed you curtains shut at all times, and a window that hardly opened and air conditioning that was faulty.

We went to breakfast on the last morning to find No milk for cereals or coffee or tea and no bananas, and as for the breakfast items of sausages,eggs and bacon very poorly cooked and dry as a bone.

We also visited the bar and asked for a small wine which wasn't poured up to the line and a half of beer which the bar man said they didn't serve half pints, we were flummoxed we asked how much a pint was and it was £3.78 which we declined, we asked why they had no half pints and the bar man called Donald said he did not know what a half pint looks like and had none but we saw one and pointed it out after which he remarked is that a half pint glass,we chuckled and said yes, the wine we asked for was supposed to be dry but it came out medium he clearly wasn't trained enough. Our bar bill came to £4.90. The brewery and weights and measures would have a ball. Anyhow we immediately afterwards complained and was offered a free drink but refused as it wasn't the principal and loud football on in the background with lager louts wasn't our forte. We didn't take it lightly to being ripped off at Night Club prices.

We never had dinner there as fish and chips for instance was £9.95 and a plain filled sandwich was over £5 I mean come on they are not the Ritz!!!

When it came to the last morning on our departure day we had a wake up call at 7am sharp of a loud telephone ring which we had not asked for as we planned to get up later around 9.30 am and then there was a loud noise of a bang on the reverse wall from another room how charming, so we got up, dressed only one of us had breakfast and then we packed and went to reception to check out and get out of the place. We told the receptionist of the loud bang and wake up call which we had not planned or bargained for and the receptionist said because we asked for an early morning wake up call on the Tuesday Morning it was automatically on the system for the next day and would not be taken off, I explained that if we did not ask for another one the next morning they should have taken it off the system, we were not impressed. So we checked out and left the Hotel not to be going back there again unless forced.

I would say view this hotel with caution as the prices are ridiculous for what you get and if you do try this place buy a B&B as a breakfast alone is £8.95 very expensive.

Just because its 5 minutes from the city centre does not mean they have to have city centre prices!

Book here at your own risk is all we can say.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the canal, only get a safety deposit box if you really have to, and be war...

6 of us went down to Manchester for a night out - we had 3 people in each room comfortably. Very clean - good central location - friendly staff - a shame there is no onsite car park - bar quite expensive, but like I said good for what we needed. Good Value

Stayed here for the second time for 1 night and again the bar area is very very poor. Arrived back after a concert at about 10.30 and bar staff were inefficient, ignorent, and spent more time chatting up girls than serving customers. They had no short glasses no Budweiser on draught despite two pumps for same, and the tables were dirty and and the general area untidy. Rooms are fine and reception staff helpful but breakfast at 8.50 was steep in my view. If i stay in Manchester again it will not be here.
