We stayed Sunday 23rd February before an early flight from the airport the next day. We took the opportunity of eating in a restaurant in Chinatown, which was great. The hotel only charged £49 for a refundable booking, what is not to like?

Stayed her for two nights beginning of March. Ideal location for Theatre, shops and restaurants. Reception were efficient and friendly and provided us with a map of the area. Room was clean and comfortable. Only downside was our room was at the front of the hotel and was a bit noisy. Our friends had a room at the back and was a bit quieter. Wouldn't put me off staying but would ask for a room at the back. Breakfast was good value and staff excellent in letting you know when they were closing so could have that last coffee.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel seem a bit quieter.

We booked this hotel 6 months in advance as we had tickets for Micheal Buble and got a decent room rate. The location of the hotel is great only minutes from the city centre and and train stations. Reception area is very modern upmarket unfortunately the room corridors could do with a make over ! The room itself is a good size with the usual basic amenities. Bathroom is like a plastic pod which is actually really good with a nice big shower. If you get a decent price on a room here it is definitely worth a visit.

Me and my friend stayed for one night having visited Manchester to see Michael Buble. Check in took about 5mins and there was a little confusion but we got there eventually, staff helpful and friendly, room clean and comfortable. Rooms were bijou, comfy beds, long but very narrow. Bathroom compact but clean, reminded me of a bathroom in a caravan and just as noisy when outside in the room. Only let down was disrespectful noisy guests. We had a taxi booked for 6:15 to take us to the airport so had an earlyish night but the noise from other guests, above us, and either side of us went on into the early hrs preventing us both from getting much sleep. On checking out there wasn't anyone present at the desk and we couldn't wait as our cab was waiting for us. We have emailed today and are awaiting a reply. It's not their fault that some people don't know how to behave but maybe a staff presence walking the corridors at night might stop this. A little disappointing but great location and friendly staff.
