It's ok for a short stay.
The service at reception wa just ok, they need more committed staff.
The location is not bad, although too close to the road allowing for noise pollution from moving vehicles.
It could be better as they need to enhance the availability of basic facilities in their rooms.
The neatness of the sheets and bathroom made my stay enjoyable.

This hotel is centrally located close to the Manchester Arena and is very easy to find. Although you do have to pay to park outside the hotel it is off the road and the cost is clearly stated during the online booking process. On arrival all areas were spotlessly clean. We arrived at 22:00hrs is a party of five and within minutes we purchased food and drinks in the hotel bar. Breakfast the following morning was to a good non greasy typical English cooked standard. There were also cereals, croissants, toast etc available.

We stayed in this hotel for just one night to attend the McBusted show. It is located only 2 minutes away from the arena and 5 minutes away from the city centre. If you reach Manchester by train (as we did) I'd recommend getting a taxi as the city centre is really busy. Our room was spacious and clean and the bed was really comfortable. The hotel was crowded of people going to the concert so the corridors were quite noisy but the rooms seemed to be soundproof as we had no problem to sleep. The staff at the reception were very kind.

This is a great location 5 minutes from the train station and just set back from the busyness of the centre. The room was basic but well maintained and had all the essentials. One slight disadvantage is that the hotel is unable to offer anywhere to store baggage for an hour or so after check-out so if you're thinking of lunch in the city before heading home, cases/bags have to follow. I would highly recommend this hotel and you really cannot grumble at the value for money here!

I came with a group of girls for a hen night - either someones sat nav wasn't working or the postcode is wrong as it took us ages to find the place. Check in and room OK but then went down the bar for a drink but no on was there to serve us. I asked at reception and 1 poor bloke was trying to check-in a queue of people as well as work behind the bar at the same time. In the end we just drank our own drinks, and would have ordered food but there was no one there to ask so didn't bother. Lost out on some cash there! However, I will say not far to the nightlife (once you knew which way to go!), comfy nights sleep and the breakfast was much better than expected. Breakfast staff very attentive. Would probably go there again, especially if going to the arena.

Not been a fan of Travelodge, previously, but this one is quite new, so room was ok, but basic. Location 15 minute walk to "Printworks". Its a fair option if your looking for basic accommodation. The bar is good, open 24 hours,if thats an attraction, did not test it personally. Did not use cafe so can't commment. Big let down for me was lack of air con in room, it was a hot day, (YES I KNOW IT WAS MANCHESTER)

When we arrived to check in, nearing 4pm, we were told the accessible room we'd booked was unavailable as some were 'out of order' and others had already been allocated to other guests. The receptionist did his utmost to help us by showing us other rooms to see what would be most suitable for a wheelchair. He was extremely friendly and apologetic, always asking us if we were okay when we bumped into him during our stay, but this does not excuse for the massive mistake that had been made. Particularly as my partner noticed a large group of males staying in the accessible room across from us, who had no obvious need to be there. We had travelled over 250 miles that day and so could not have arrived at the hotel any faster to ensure we got allocated the correct room. It would've been interesting to see how it would have been dealt with had that room been absolutely necessary to us...

However, all that aside, this was a decent hotel, perfectly clean and quiet. It was only a short 5/10 minute walk to the city centre which is much less than we were expecting, and was very easy to find. Cannot comment on the breakfast/dinner as we did not eat at the hotel once due to being out and about doing other things.

Overall, we had a lovely stay here but I feel it is important that the mistake that was made is noted to ensure it does not happen again to other guests.
