“not expecting much I ventured in....”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

Having booked months before to attend the Party conference I was horrified to read the reviews just hours before I arrived. What do you expect for £58 a night for a double room including breakfast? Well there was a friendly welcome and the room was clean with decent sized towels, The bathroom was small but clean and the bed comfortable, For the price it was a bargain - other hotels in Manchester were charging at least double even for a 3 star hotel. It's great for the shops and I would stay again - yes it is like a boarding house but at least it was friendly

Room Tip: It seems like pot luck but take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper tell them if you can't mana...

Stayed here once before in a nicer room. Average accomodation - bit noisey due to location.

Good breakfast and staff ok!

my partner booked this hotel online ,initially it looked good due to the fact it was within walking distance to m e n arena where we were due to go and see peter kay.,
upon arrival we had to negotiate a flight of stairs to get to reception(not good with suitcases)
reception was well presented with polite staff. we were given our key with directions to room(another flight of stairs couple of sets of steps narrow corridors still struggling with suitcases)
THE ROOM! ....
reminded me of a student bedsit!!! the bed was i think a stone slab masquarading as 1!.it was hard and very uncomfortable
BATHROOM!
was so tiny,after using the loo it was a job to ""turn and adjust your attire"" no vetalation and little room to dry yourself properly after a shower.
THE VIEW
was looking straight at the cathederal which in it self was lovely....however throughout the night it is illuminated likea football pitch so even with the (waferthin) curtains drawn the room was illuminated as well poor nights sleep DID NOT wake up happy or refreshed.
would we go there again??? not realy no.

Room Tip: ask to see a couple of rooms 1st then you decide upon it.

Given its location, this could be the best hotel in Manchester. What a waste. Not particularly cheap and certainly much more than Travelodge which would have been cleaner - something for me to say!! Breakfast was cheap salty bacon, cheap fatty sausages, rubber egg and over cooked beans - all for about £7.50!! - go to Cafe Rouge for breakfast, it's cheaper and better. I had a single room with an en-suite the size of a broom cupboard. Toilet smelt every time it was flushed suggesting broken pipes or 'Muncher' which kept going off in the night. Strip lights on the outside window sill so constant light though thin curtains.
Towels were clean though and duvet clean.

Was seriously concerned when i booked the hotel last November for this Augusts Pride. However first impressions were great, when we eventually realised we had to go through the bar & upstairs to find the hotels reception. The bar looked very modern & stylish with its decor, chandaliers and furniture so a good first impression was had so far. When we got upstairs to check in, the reception room/area was the equally pleasing to the eye Same decor/style, very clean & modern ( see photos enclosed ) so i was pleased so far having read the mixed reviews.

We were given our room key & we were greeted with the same stylish decor in our room. Then on close inspection it changed a little, a shelf that was in the room was not straight and looked very unsafe if items were placed on it. A chair in the room was actually postioned next to said shelf and looked like it was indeed supporting the shelf Then there was the bathroom because it had no extractor fan, the wallpaper to the bathrooms walls were falling off in places espacilly around the shower ( due to the condensation from the shower ) Also a wooden panel had fallen off and had simply not been replaced or re-postioned ( put up to hide the water pipes etc ) Although it was clean the room was simply let down by something that would take just 5 or 10 minutes to rectify.

The beds were ok a little hard but ok, we did ask to see another room but when we saw it we decided to stick with the room we had. One bed in the other room was really low & both were old as the mattresses were really hard. Breakfast was ok though with a good full english or vegaterian option being available. Staff were very friendly and welcoming so even though our room needed some tlc in places we were happy with what we paid and generally how the hotel looked. It was at the end of the day clean,central & a decent price.

O.M.G just says it all. I have never stayed in a place as bad . The bar and resturant look very nice and even the reseption. But past that point it all goes wrong the rooms are the worst i have everseen. and the bath and shower rooms are a nightmare. IF U WONT CHEAP AND DIRTY THIS IS THE PLACE TOO STAY . THE HOTEL INSPECTER WOULD HAVE A FIELDDAY
