“Weekend in Manchester”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

My partner and i had a weekend in Manchester. Hotel is in good location close to shopping area and the bars of canal street. Reception staff were friendly and helpful.
Only issue was with room, this was not cleaned properly only bed made nothing else cleaned or wiped down. Rubbish was not removed from the room.
Bathroom door did not close and bathroom light was flickering. Only one lift working all weekend and on Saturday both lifts broke although this was fixed by Sunday.
Not impressed.

Went with my son to visit University Of Manchester and had to stay over the night before for early start the next day. We chose the hotel based on proximity to the university as we wanted to walk in. The hotel is absolutley fine, the room comfortable (although the aircon/heater fan was rather noisy). The reception team were really excellent, and could not do enough to help. If Manchester is the final choice we will certainly be using this hotel in the future.

Subway next door and a cracking curry house across the road,Would stay again just i cant see why hotels are a allowed to up prices when someone big is in the city, we tried for robbie williams and it was 200.00 what is that all about, But i would recommend this hotel we went to canal street for a drink great place for a drink, food at the ibis is lovely the breakfast was just great. All in all a clean and great hotel,xx

Very clean and check in was smooth and straightforward(thanks to the receptionist!), when we first arrived TV was broken but that was quickly resolved. Free tea amd coffee and bed was comfortable. My only issue is the fact the WiFi is not actually free and I had to use my iphone for Internet connection. All in all a good stay! Would return for a short stay.

I stayed here with a friend for a girls night out in Manchester, fantastic value, clean, fantastic location on Portland Street right in the centre of Manchester. Hotel staff very helpful, I left my perfume in the room, I contacted the hotel the following day and they emailed me straight back to say they had the perfume and would post it out to me or keep it for me to collect......I have re-booked for August..........good enough excuse to go back!! :)
