For spending a night in Manchester this hotel is great for location, just being minutes away from Victoria station and the MEN arena - though not so great if you're going to be on the other side of the city centre. Also, the Boddington car park right next door is also really handy - £3.50 a day, shame it's not 24 hour tickets instead.
As for the hotel I'm a bit disappointed for the quality. Paying £53 for a night I'd expect a bit more out of it. I requested to be on a higher floor, personal preference, which has normally been okay but the water pressure here was ridiculously bad, both from the tap and shower head. I can only imagine being on the top floor is what caused the issue, otherwise I'd be pretty disappointed. On top of that, the shower temperature was quite hot and refused to change regardless of how it was set. There was no hairdryer in the room, which you can get from reception desk but it does mean having to go to the desk yourself, as there's no other way to ask for one.
I think it's good Travelodge are trying revamp and redecorating their hotels, but I don't think they've done it in a great way. Poor lighting, small bathroom and yet again the mirror is so far away from any plug socket it makes it even more pointless having it there.
On the brightside, the bed was comfy! I'd consider staying here again only if a room was available at a much cheaper price. If you're finding it at a similar price I'd recommend trying elsewhere.
