“Great, great, great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

We stayed at Days Hotel for one night on a Wowcher Deal. Very impressed right from when I booked a few weeks ago. Great location, very convenient (and reasonable) car park next to hotel - cost £4 for an overnight tariff. Check in was quick with excellent service. Room was small but had everything you needed and a very large shower in the ensuite bathroom. A full shower screen would have been preferable as the spray did make the floor rather wet. However, a minor detail. Well decorated, immaculately clean with high end bathroom products. The rest of our experience and staff more than made up for the bijou bedroom.
Evening meal as part of the deal was excellent, speedy service and beautifully cooked and presented food. Breakfast was very good. Self service with a wide range of options for both "Full English" and continental breakfasters - plus great coffee. Pretty quiet for a city centre location so sleep not a problem.
A special mention must go to James who was managing the Conservatory Bar in the evening and heading up breakfast service the next morning. Most welcoming, friendly, made a point of coming over to speek to us at breakfast - a grand lad.
Great value deal but would certainly stay here again any time.

Room Tip: Perhaps go for an upgrade to a superior room if you fancy more space.

Excellent hotel, part of Manchester Conference Centre. Reasonably priced. Free WiFi. Good service. Easy access to Piccadilly Railway Station and Arndale Shopping Centre. Was a little hard to find at first - the Days Hotel logo was quite small and under the conference centre sign. Would definitely stay there again if in Manchester.

We were in Manchester for a concert and stayed at the Days Hotel Manchester . I have to say the staff were the most friendly people you could wish to meet anywhere nothing was a problem for anyone of them we met .the only down side of the stay was the room size it was very small but as I said the staff more than made up for this can't wait to return

I stayed in the Days Hotel in Manchester City at the beginning of October, and had special deal 2 days for £60. It is really excellent value for money, and highly recommended. Wifi was free, although not great!

Booked the Days for a Saturday night after most hotels i looked at were much more expensive. Reception was extremely friendly on checking in. Good location 10 minutes from Piccadilly. The room is small but perfectly adequate. All areas very clean. The hotel was obviously very busy especially at breakfast .The breakfast had a good selection though some of the hot items could have been hotter despite the high turnover of breakfasts. Once again all the staff helpful and friendly. If you want a decent budget choice this side of Manchester i would recommend the Days.

Have stayed here a couple of times over the years, on business, and always happy to go back. The staff are always very friendly, the breakfast is good and the rooms comfortable. Short walk from Piccadilly, really you can walk to anywhere in the city centre within 10-15 mins max. It's not necessarily the most inspiring hotel, either to look at or the rooms themselves, but I've never had any complaints and that's all you could really ask for.

We have just returned home from a very comfortable stay at this hotel. We found all of the staff to be extremly courteous and helpful, every need met with a smile and a calm efficiency. The rooms, although small, were very clean and comfortable. We arrived in time for lunch and we have to give a special mention to the chips which were heavenly. A taxi ordered for us by the hotel was a few minutes late in arriving but without being asked the gentelman on reception chased it for us and it then arrived a few minutes later. I would also like to give a special mention to the gentelman who looks after the coffee bar as he was extremely helpful in helping us to collect luggage and take it to our rooms. We enjoyed a comfortable nights sleep, very quiet considering the coach party on a hen night that turned up just as we were leaving to attend our wedding, which did give me a moment of anxiety. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of choice and all piping hot. It was a shame that we were only staying for one night and if we need a hotel in the area again, I would have no hesitation in re-booking. Many thanks to all who assisted us during our stay, you were all very helpful.
