The Pendulum Hotel
Ranked #46 of 120 Hotels in Manchester
Reviewed 17 November 2013

The hotel staff was really friendly and helpful. Very clean room with modern decor. Even though towels were clean they were torn at some points. The worst part was a student party from the "student section" of the hotel. I called the reception asking when the music stops and a receptionist came immediately to check that indeed there is loud music on. He apologized and the music made the student stop the music but they kept shouting. Girls screaming out of excitement every five minutes even after midnight is not the best lullaby you can have

The area looked a bit weird at night - full of bars -taking a taxi makes you feel much safer

This is a very good hotel and good value for money. It is conveniently located in the city centre close to the train station. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The rooms are excellent, very clean and nicely furnished.

Days Hotel is closed to Manchester Piccadilly train station and situated nearby the town center. Ideal for shopping and touring around! A very clean, friendly and spacious hotel. Though the room may appear small, it is very well decorated, well thought through and most importantly well equipped with very comfortable bedding! A place i recommend without any doubt!

The room I stayed in while here was small but clean and comfortable. The hotel is very centrally located within easy reach of the city centre. One of the lifts was out of service while I was there and sometimes meant a long wait to take the lift. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Reception staff (Ahmed) very helpful, smooth check-in. Room quite small but adequate, the double bed (my side) was against the wall which was not great as I like to 'hang over' the edge normally. Bed comfortable, pillows not so but I always miss my own pillow when away. Very clean and tidy, nice bathroom, powerful shower. We had bought a 'Wowcher' deal which gave us a meal (either burger & chips or fish & chips) and a drink. My fish, chunky chips and mushy peas was lovely as was hubby's burger, chips and salad. Both freshly cooked (gorgeous chips) and piping hot. We were the only ones in the dining room at the time (6o/c ish). We did not linger as we were going to the theatre.
Room was quiet and we had the window open all night.
Breakfast was fine tho busy. There was obviously a conference on (midweek) and we had to wait for dishes to be topped up for cooked breakfast. We had to share tables with strangers as did most people as no tables for 2, and only limited tables for 4. Business people on our table obviously did not want to speak with strangers which was a little awkward. Breakfast fine though.
Hotel handy for centre of Manchester. Approx 15 mins walk to shopping centre/trams. 10 mins walk to Palace Theatre.
A good experience all round and excellent value for money.

Room Tip: We were on 3rd floor overlooking a courtyard - very quiet
