We stayed for one night at this hotel because of good reports from previous Tripadvisor respondents. We weren't disappointed. The hotel is clean, comfortable and well placed and the staff we met were all really helpful, friendly and spoke English with an English accent! We travelled by rail and found that it's a half an hour walk from Oxford Road Station because only local trains stop at the nearer Deansgate Station.
The location of this hotel is amazing to anyone with a smidgen of interest in England's heritage. There's the Castlefield Basin within 100 yards (think Duke of Bridgewater's canal - the first commercial canal in England), the Museum of Science and Industry just across the road (think world's first passenger railway station), the Opera House is exactly 10 minutes away on foot (think Northern Ballet) and the Granada studios are within half a mile .. er, well perhaps the exception proves the rule.
The hotel's website is misleading in that it appears to offer only a continental breakfast. As the staff pointed out when we asked, this is inaccurate and the price includes a full English breakfast.
We shall definitely stay at the Castlefield again when next we visit Manchester.
