“Basic but good location and staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014 via mobile

A small hotel above a pub, which smells like a pub would when you enter, not a hotel.
Receptionist and other employees friendly, helpful and professional.
The room was small and floor slanted. Bathroom basic too. For a two night stay it did the job, especially for the price.
Location is good from both Piccadilly or Victoria stations. The shops and eateries are close by and the area does feel safe.
Only complaint of the room would be the noise through the thin windows from the road below early morning.
If you're looking for a cheap and no thrills room, stop here.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

Dear Guest,
Thank you for you review, we do like to pride ourselves on our high level of customer service and are happy to hear you received nothing less. The building itself is a listed property and some floors are a little unlevel. This is not a job that we are able to rectify easily however we feel it adds additional character to the hotel. We hope to see you again on your next trip to Manchester.
Kind Regards
Management

We booked this hotel last minute and was reasonably cheap compared to other hotels .loved the location ,staff were friendly .we booked into room 18 with stunning views of the cathedral .The room itself was what i expected for the price we paid .yes it does need a little refurb inn places which i believe is in progress .But the bed was comfy and linen was clean so did have a good nights sleep .would definatly use this hotel again but maybe upgrade to a better room .

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review. As you mentioned we are in the process of refurbishment, however being a listed building some work is easier to carry out than others. We hope that you will come and stay with us again soon.
Kind Regards

Worst hotel I have ever stayed in . Live Wiers were hangging out of a wall light that looked like it had been ripped off above the bed. Airial was cellotaped together and was dangerous. Radiator didnt work. Beds fell to pieces when you sat on them. Also the lock on the door was not secure as it looked like it had been bashed in . Not worth money atall. Only good thing was the location and the view of the church . Even the food wasnt homemade as states in menu . Awfull.

Recently stayed two nights. First - the positives! Great location, pleasant reception staff. Unfortunately that's about it. I had to haul my case up three flights of creaky stairs up to the attic. My room was very small, claustrophobic (couldn't open windows) ,frayed dirty looking carpet, thin duvet,cheap flat pack white melamine furniture - the back of the wardrobe was hanging loose, the vinyl in the bathroom cut too wide around the base of the sink, tiles missing around the shower and blackened grout, no bedside light, the place was dirty, black specks of something in the chest of drawers so didn't dare put my clothes in them, noise of bottle bins being emptied around 5 am, quite an uncomfortable nights sleep. The whole place needs a revamp. It could be really nice with a bit of work to it, which I hope will be done, as the building itself is full of character.

The location of the hotel is ideal and the staff were friendly.
Unfortunately there isn't anything else positive to say. It is run down and everything other than the bed linen was dirty. I stayed with my mother and sister in a large family room. At £129 it was not value for money. I wouldn't stay here again. Grim.

I stayed at the Mitre and the experience was poor, even though the location is great and staff is friendly, the room itself leaves a lot to be desired.

The floor is carpeted but very noisy and uneven. There is a Pub on the ground floor and sort of a beer garden surrounding the location which is great as enjoying the nightlife starts at your doorstep.

There were stains on the walls / I am guessing from humidity therefore it needs painting.

The TV has no remote control and Internet can only be used in the reception lounge.. The staff was friendly and courteous.

The bed headboard was not even attached to the bed. It was a standard base bed and a leather headboard was moving so I removed it in the end. See pictures attached

The price was reasonable 29gbp per night however I will be looking elsewhere next time. The carpet had white stains and the chest of drawers where the TV stands does not close, the first drawer opens all the time.
