“Clean B&B - Good location”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Single traveller, 30£ cash per night as the only room left was a family one (4 beds) on the 2nd floor (I believe single rooms are cheaper).
The bedroom was clean and had it’s own shower cubicle, TV, heating, towels and toilet soap. Good english breakfast, huge collection of Marilyn's memorabilia all around the place.
I couldn't stay longer as to enjoy the pub but it looked real nice to have a pint in such an atmosphere.
The hotel is ideally located just next to Piccadilly train station.

Not a bad little pub/hotel if you are staying in Manchester.This hotel is nice and convenient if you are travelling to Manchester by train,being less than 5 minutes walk from Piccadilly train station,it's also a short walk to chinatown and Piccadilly gardens.

The decor is a bit cheesy with Marilyn Monroe being every way you turn,the price of a pint was the most expensive i had in Manchester,and the rooms could do with a serious refurbish.But at £40 for a double room and breakfast in the morning,what more do you want?

i must say i usually book with premier inn for my overnight stays in Manchester,but if i was stuck i'd consider booking a night at Monroes again.

my arrival into Monroe s bar area was of a pleasant, vibrant atmosphere...popular music played, whilst a young man present inside Monroe s entrance, noticed my long white cane and offered assistance to the bar area, where attentive staff prevented any anxiety i may have had arriving alone, before my friend arrived for his birthday treats.
the room was pure poetry,,,lighting from Manchester s Picadilly approach, and London Road, traffic, and vibrational sounds from Metrolink trams, all made for a nostalgic memory geography, especially when room lights were turned off, and curtains left undrawn... pure poetry made in Manchester, with love and a devotion only afforded to those who revel in Manchester s transitioning history from it s prominant place in the industrial revolution, through to arts, music and a northern soul all of it s own.
Monroes sheets were starched and clean, towels plump as peaches,,,and each bed was adorned with a keepsake bar of pink pears soap... marvellously delectable touch...thanks

Cheap and cheerful! We were there for a project at The Lowry and some weeks later for an exhibition. Yes, we were expected to pay up front, no cheques taken and no cards accepted, but what do you want for twenty quid a night each B&B? The rooms and beds were clean, breakfast was enough. Ann and Noeline did a good job. MY ONLY COMPLAIN IS THAT THE ROOMS STANK OF STALE SMOKE! THEY MUST STOP SMOKING IN THE ROOMS!!!

We booked for a double room at monroes as we needed to get away for the weekend and decided to go to manchester monroes was right across the road from piccadilly railway so we thought that it was and should be a very good idea. when we called they said they had no double rooms but would book us into a triple room for the price of a double we thought wow cant go wrong. we traveled 45 min by train to get there when we walked in it looked okay although they did drag us through the pub and then the kitchen and then to the room well where do i start. they seemed friendly enough and took us up to our room. when they opened the door to let us in we were in shock we were a couple hoping to spend a quiet weekend away together. our room didnt even have a double bed there were five single beds in a really large room so we couldnt even sleep together so we thought okay not a problem we will just push the beds together. All the duvets were old and smelt the only thing clean on the bed was the sheet well i hope it was clean. when we decided to go to bed thats when it really started first of all there was no double glazing so the traffic was really loud all night long there is a rave across the road that you can hear all night friday and saturday till six in the morning sirens allways going off and driving past we got about six hours sleep from friday till sunday we couldnt even get up for the breakfast as we were to tired the only thing i enjoyed was leaving i couldnt wait the only reason we stayed is because we paid cash up front and couldnt find a room any where else the only way you would get some sleep is to be really really drunk and would have to pass out otherwise you have no chance. Sorry it needs a good clean as well.
