We stayed here recently for a couple of nights on our way up to Scotland. The staff were lovely, the rooms were a good size with comfy beds and a nice en suite. Only a couple of minutes walk to anything and everything you would want to do in Manchester centre. Full buffet breakfast for 3 hours in the morning was a bonus! Would definitely recommend, and definitely stay again!

Don't expect much from a budget type hotel. Booked into the holiday inn on a recent trip to MEN . Really struggled to get a room as a big concert on and several theatres with large productions on. Took what was offered on website and expected a low budget hotel with basic rooms. The rooms were gorgeous ( we had interconnecting room because we were two ladies travelling with our daughters.). The room was great. So modern and clean . Would have given it 5 stars but the kettle didn't work in the room properly and the breakfast was a bit of a free for all, not the hotels fault. Had a nice enjoyable stay, in a lovely hotel, with pleasant staff and a stones throw away from the city centre. Will definitely be visiting this hotel again. It will be my first choice in future,

Room Tip: Excellent inter connecting rooms for families

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel , I am pleased we were able to exceed your expectations. I am sorry that the kettle didn’t work properly during your stay we did have a temperamental batch but we are removing and replacing as we are informed of them. Hope to see you, your friend and daughters again soon

I stayed here to attend a concert on the 4th October. The hotel is situated a 5/10 min walk from the city centre and MEN arena. The hotel staff were all very friendly and our room was very clean and modern and the bed was extremley comfortable. The staff put signs on the pillows to indicate which pillow was soft and which was the hard one which I thought was a nice touch even though it was not required. The bathroom was big and clean. We had breakfast in the morning and usually when you have a cooked breakfast from a buffett in hotels the food is luke warm... Not here it was piping hot and very good. The breakfast area could be a bit bigger but its nothing you cant live with. Would definitley recommend this hotel and if i come back to manchester I will be staying here again

Me and my friend stayed there for 2 nights to attend a rock concert in the MEN Arena. We chose this hotel because it is only a 10 minute walk to the Arena and about 15 minute walk from Piccadilly Station. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by very friendly staff in a modern looking reception area. Check in was very easy and quick. We were in a room on the 3rd and we were extremely pleased with our room. The rooms very clean, modern and spacious. The shower in the bathroom was also powerful and there was never a problem with lack of hot water and the beds were extremely comfy. As well as its location to the MEN Arena this hotel is also close to the Arndale shopping centre and The Printworks which is good for restaurants and pubs. I will definately be staying here again if i'm attending the MEN Arena again.

Nice welcome, nice clean room

totally value for money and within walking distance of the train station, arena and the Arndale centre.

A bonus was breakfast for free

Will definite stay here again if going to the MEN again

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights when attending a concert at the MEN arena. The hotel was clean and bright, good size rooms with large walk in showers. We had read lots of reviews before our trip and agree with those that said that the breakfast area was a bit small, more like a corridor, but this wasn't too much of an issue. The hotel is ideally suited for walking into the town, bars and arena, once we got our bearings. The only critisism we have is.....please stop people attending breakfast in night wear and with bare feet!!!!

Thank You for your great review of the hotel, I am glad you found the location suited for your visit to the arena and shopping areas. I could not agree more about the minority of guests who try to come to breakfast in nightwear and bare feet and this is something of a bugbear with me. The team do inform guests to go back to their rooms to put shoes and appropriate clothing on as it is not only unhygienic but also a health and safety risk unfortunately a small amount of people especially at busy times manage to slip past but I can assure you it is not tolerated once spotted. We hope that you choose us for your next visit to Manchester
