Reviewed 26 June 2012

We stayed here a week ago for 1 night as we were there to go a gig at the Men arena .The check in was swift and painless at 1 30pm .Its less than 5 minutes from the coach station .The room for 1 night was small but very well arranged .Breakfast and the bar area were fine and its only a 15 minute stroll to the Men via the Arndale centre .Also the area around Sackville st seemed pretty safe and had many bars and pubs nearby .I would go again without hesitation

Stayed overnight cos Bruce was in town! Can't fault the hotel - near the station, clean, good breakfast, friendly staff. I'd stay there again. There's a pub on the corner that sells food for those (me next time) on a budget. Oh, and you can get snacks late at night, apparently, from room service.

We stayed here as we were attending a concert. The staff on the front desk were very friendly however I had requested directions and a map a week before we went, after phoning and emailing nothing materialised. We arrived at the hotel at 2pm and were told we couldn't get in our rooms until 3pm, there would be a supplement for an early check in. Not a problem we left our cases at reception and went for a drink. When we got to our room I wished we hadn't bothered. W had paid £80 for a shoe box which stank of stagnant water, a window which wouldn't close and we were on the ground floor. We complained but the receptionist told us there was nothing they could do as they were fully booked. The breakfast was dried up and cold, I honestly think it was from the day prior! We still had to pay in full despite complaining in the morning aswel.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel!

This is a great hotel, a little further from the train station then other hotels, but it is clean, comfortable and excellent value for money. Yes, I guess the rooms are a little small, but I find them quite adequate. The breakfast is satisfactory, as you would expect from a budget chain. The staff are excellent, and now I returned on several occasions they have started to remember me, which is a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this for any one on business trips or for traveling.

Stayed at this well located hotel, close to a multi storey car park (£10) in March. Fortunately we stayed on a national newspaper discount deal and therefore paid only £10 for the room. One of several hotels we have stayed in under this scheme, including other Days Inn hotel group.

The check in was efficient, we were allowed to our room early, however it can only be described as tiny. The room was clean, tidy and well formed, however the shower room was little more than a cupboard and the bed was crammed up against the wall. Even as a single room it would have been small but you can tell was previously a students room.

For £10 was okay value, for full price would have been dismal!

A tad disappointing overall.
