Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review we will look into the comments highlighted and rectify where possible. We are at present carrying out maintenance work around the hotel which is neither intrusive or disruptive to guests, however being a listed building some jobs are harder to carry out than others.
We hope to see you again soon.

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.

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 .

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.
