We stayed at the hotel for one night when we were going to a gig at the Manchester Evening News Arena.
On arrival, we checked in very quickly and were given a pass for the car park which we paid £8 for. Our room was on the 3rd floor but the lift meant this was no problem at all.
The room was fine, clean and had a full bathroom suite, plenty of storage, TV and tea/coffee making facillities. The beds weren't the comfiest in the world and the room was a little dark if I were to be picky but that is me lookingfor things to moan about there!
The hotel is smack bang opposite the Museum of industry and science, which is free to get into and good for killing a bit of time, it's interesting too.
A walk to the MEN (in high heels) took us approximately 25 minutes, we did get a cab back as my feet were killing after standing through the gig, but if I was wearing sensible shoes we could have easily walked it.
There are quite a few, bars, restaurants and shops within easy walking distant and the location of the hotel really is a plus point.
The communal areas were good, we had breakfast which was pretty good- full english with toast as well as a selection of yoghurt, fruit, cereal and juices.
We didn't use the Y Club but it did look good and if we had had more time, we would have definately tried out the pool!
Overall, the Castlefield is a great little hotel, very clean with good service in a good location for a short break in the city.
