“Great staff and great location”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

All the staff were very friendly and helpful, from the gentleman that checked us in right through to the lady at breakfast. The room was clean and had everything we needed including an iron and ironing board, yes we did hear party revellers walking past the hotel in the early hours but it is a city centre location so it is to be expected. The only downside was there was a mildew smell in the bathroom, the bathroom had no windows so perhaps could benefit from an extractor fan. Breakfast was lovely and they catered for vegetarians aswel which was great. Beautiful canalside location, and i would book here again

If you are looking for value , cleanliness and helpful and friendly staff , this one is for you!
As a guide, my wife and I paid less than a total of £60 each ,for bed , breakfast and two course evening meal and drinks. Also includes parking and free wifi ....The sports facilities are first class , including a large swimming pool.
It is about twenty mins from City Centre centre.
There are several neighbouring hotels where we would have paid almost double .

Recommended.

Tommos, Many thanks for your feedback and delighted you enjoyed your visit and the value for money included in your deal. Your post proves the value of shopping around when, occasionally, you discover a gem,which you certainly did with this promotional rate.

We stayed here for a weekend with a bunch of friends. We checked in early and the room was pleasant, but expensive for what it was. The facilities (pool, sauna, steam room) are actually a leisure centre attached to the hotel - not explained when we booked it. We arrived back from drinks in Manchester centre, to find that the staff were noisily clearing away a 60th birthday part, which went on into the early hours of the morning. The rooms do not have air con, so opening a window is a must, but the noise is so loud this prevents sleep. We then arrived for breakfast in the morning to find that it wasn't included and was an extra £7.50 per person!!! This was not explained when we booked, or when we checked in. We especially asked about when the breakfast would be served, and still weren't told. I would not stay here again, and found it expensive for what it was.

Room Tip: No matter where you stay you will be disturbed by noisy roads, screaming people in the street, doors...

Rosie Bu,
Thanks for the feedback and sorry that you were not happy with all aspects of your stay.As you say, the leisure centre is, like many other hotel based leisure centres attached to the hotel, being 1 floor down from reception and I am not sure what your issue is with this nor with the fact that the team were cleaning up after an event held in the hotel.Not sure what the alternative to this is.

We are city centre based and no, unfortunately we do not have air conditioned bedrooms. The noise you refer to is not excessive for a city centre and I am sorry this upset you.

The fact that you booked a 'room only' rate is your decision and I can only suggest, should you have such specific needs of a hotel in the future, you ask about them beforehand.

Stayed here a few times and always a great experience. Very friendly and helpful staff on reception. Great secure parking, clean smart rooms. Breakfast is very good to and ideal location for the city centre. Given where it's situated it's very quite too. Top place.

We stayed in a standard double room back in June, mainly due to the location. About a five minute walk into deansgate and the main shopping area. There is a £10 charge for parking in the hotel, which we didn't consider too bad considering being in Manchester city centre and in a secure gated compound. The rooms were not the largest but still a decent size for a couple. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, they even sent an item of clothing back to our home address after we left it in the wardrobe. Good value and would stay again if looking to stay central.

Thank you for commenting and delighted we were able to be helpful both during and after your stay. As you say, on site parking at such rates, in central Manchester is an added bonus.

We stayed here recently for a night as we were going to two concerts at the Castlefield Bowl. The hotel could not be any better located for going to an event here. We booked a twin room and it was lovely. All the staff were really accommodating, we had to leave our car in the car park for a full day that night as we were leaving after the concert and they were really helpful

Stayed here exactly 12 months ago ... Was a bit dated then but good value ...
NOW..
It's battered and seriously needs a major revamp honestly couldn't stay here again ...
Great location and nice surroundings but the rooms are seriously POOR ....

Wouldn't pay more than £20 per night (that's the standard )

Sorry but it's true ....
Staff are friendly helpful and very pleasant ....
Owners spend some money on a refurb ...!!!

Jondh72.
Thanks for the feedback and your call to arms re investment.
I am surprised by your comments as, during the last year we have added new curtains to all rooms, upgraded to 32" TV's in all rooms,added total new bathrooms to 33% of rooms and replaced carpets in 25% of rooms. Added to this we have a new, full time, additional maintenance person specifically tasked with ensuring rooms are kept to standard so our disappointment with your comments is deep.

From the above you will appreciate that we recognise the need to re-invest and are actively doing so.I am sorry this was not apparent in your case.
