The Pendulum Hotel
Ranked #45 of 120 Hotels in Manchester
Reviewed 4 April 2014

This hotel is in a great location, a 3-4 minute walk from the Canal Street bars, and a 10 minute walk from the city centre.
The bar has a reasonable happy hour between 5-7pm.
The room we had contained everything we needed for a one night stay.
The room is pokey, and one side of the bed is against the wall, which makes it difficult for one person to get up during the night without waking up their partner or for one person to bang into the wall..
The bathroom was good and adequate.
Breakfast was about £7 for an all you can eat buffet style breakfast. This was excellent value for money and worth the investment.
The hotel is clean and practical, especially for a short stay.

Choose this Hotel for its proximity to Conference Centre (same building). For my one night stay the room was clean, functional and comfortable. The check-in was efficient and everything was explained. Fresh air on arrival in room due to window ajar smelled fresh, the bed linen was soft and white and the single bed provided a comfortable night’s sleep. The restaurant service was also functional, had to ask for water. Overall, a good experience that suited my one night requirement and would recommend for that purpose.

The room was clean and adequate for a business stay. The breakfast was good. I only stayed for 1 night but I would certainly stay again. The hotel is conveneiently situtaed for the railway station and road network. I walked into the city centre (about 10-15 minutes comfortabe walk) for an evening meal so I did not try the dinner that was on offer.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Greeted at reception with a welcoming presence and all the information we required for our stay. We will definitely use this hotel again. All aspects of this hotel were what we wanted for our stay. Staff were helpful, friendly and eager to please visitors.

I recently stayed at this hotel. The main reasons for staying here were the location and the cost was reasonable. the negative aspect of my stay was the bathroom facilities, i went to turn on the tap and it did not turn on. then i could not work the shower. But the staff were helpful and sorted out the tap for me so i was able to have a bath. but after my bath i went to pull the plug out and the plug came away from the bath.
on the plus side the bed was very comfortable. the breakfast was very nice and staff were helpful at breakfast time as well.
on the whole though i would stay here again if i was ever back in Manchester.

It was a great stay. The room was slightly small for the price, but the staff was the most polite and helpful I had ever encountered at a British hotel. The restaurant food was tasty and a great deal.

I stayed 2 nights while at a conference. The room was clean and comfortable, on the smaller side but perfectly adequate. The breakfast was good, enough choice and well cooked. Overall the staff were very friendly and welcoming - I would definitely stay here again. The parking across the road was £10/24 hours.
