This hotel is a good solution for who is traveling for business in Manchester.
The location is good and the rooms are not bad at all. The staff is very friendly and open to help.
I kindly recommend this hotel in case you're visiting this city.

This is one of the newer Hi Express hotels with nicer decor and bathrooms than some of the older ones.
I used it for a city break and the location was excellent and so was the price. Staff were helpful and they have a great taxi booking app at reception. Walking distance from the main Manchester attractions and lots of good eating places nearby.
Breakfast is only so so but it is free so hey!

I chose this hotel due to the great location (its fantastic, especially if you want to visit the northern quarter) and also its very reasonable parking rates. Upon check in the staff were very friendly and informative and our room was clean and very well decorated. Negative points included the fact that the wi fi was shockingly poor and the bathroom lights had to be kept on all the time otherwise they didn't get bright enough for us to even see when we were in the bathroom. The worst point though was the breakfast. Upon arriving at the breakfast area we weren't even able to find a seat. After waiting for a while we were able to perch up at the bar. I went up to get some breakfast while my partner stayed seated. Everything was empty, there was no pastries or hot food, it was all waiting to be replenished. I returned to my partner and as we waited for the food to come out the queue was getting bigger and bigger so in the end we left it and went and got some food from the Spar opposite the hotel, very disappointing.

Extremely impressed with the room we had, it was spotless, the bathroom was very modern. Could not fault the room at all. The staff were extremely polite and helpful. Slightly disappointed with the breakfast, the choice was very limited and the coffee was terrible. We ended up going to a coffee shop across the road. But for what we paid for the room, it was still well worth it. Would definetly stay here again and will be recommending it to people venturing into the city.

Just stayed for 5 nights here while on a course in Manchester, nice clean rooms. Great location for Arndale shopping centre. Good breakfast considering the price of the room. Would definitely stay again. Lovely friendly attentive staff.
