Reviewed 17 February 2014

Brilliant service and great food. Only thing wrong is the price of a night's stay with breakfast was £105! Which i find quite pricey for one night even though brilliant hotel don't see why was that much. The breakfast was excellent and even though self service food was fresh and piping hot refilled every half hour and tea or coffee served at table.

Located in a fairly decent location, a short walk away from Piccadilly, with a conveniently placed cark park next door, which costs £2 for 24-hours Saturday and Sunday, which is the cheapest I've ever come across. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful on arrival, even when we arrived early before check in, they were able to look after our luggage and advise us on the best places to go for food and drink. The hotel looks as though it used to be a student accommodation block, the interior is very cruise like, with narrow corridors and dated décor, though the rooms are compact, they're clean and the beds comfortable. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant and had breakfast elsewhere in the morning. Overall the hotel seemed fairly good value for money, but never-the-less this is definitely a budget hotel.

Hi all, I just wanted to relay my sentiments in regards to my stay with Days Hotel in Manchester City last week. My partner and I had travelled over from Ireland to attend the Man Utd and Fulham match and were simply looking a cheapish hotel central to all the City ammenities. I have to say that we got that and more with this hotel. It was central, clean and quiet and I have to say that the staff were exemplary and eager to go out of their way to help. Food was delicious, especially the self-service buffet breakfast, however we did go for an evening meal in the Bistro and while our grub was terrific, we did experience 3 other patrons moaning about how their steaks were not cooked as asked. Come off it, this hotel isn't the Ritz and nor does it try to be!!! Overall I'd say that I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel for the money charged and would definitely recommend to family and friends!!!

Room Tip: My only mark down goes to the fact that the double room we had was borderline small, however it was...

From start to finish overall extremely satisfied once again. Ben was our host refreshing our tea coffee in a very prompt and timely manner. Also adhered to bringing us refreshments during our lengthy conference. Thank you Ben, Myra on reception was very friendly and helpful, and the food for breakfast was superb. Will definitely be holding our conferences here in the near future. The only improvement in my eyes was the size of the bedrooms. A little too small for me, all in all my delegates and myself were truly happy.

Hotel is quite a busy hotel. I felt we got fair standards to suit the price we paid. Hotel is not a 5 star hotel by any means but I would say it is a comfortable place to stay. Room had anything we needed. Breakfast was very nice and there was a good selection to choose from. The lounge was nice to have a quiet drink and a chat in. We also had food in the lounge which was very good. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful.
