I'm never good at rating hotels but made the effort this time as I had a wonderful stay. I usually stay at Hilton as I travel regularly however this time I was looking for something less expensive. Firstly I stayed at the Piccadilly premier inn for 3 nights with a friend for a bit of shopping and sightseeing before going to Manchester airport. I arrived alone at 8.30 am and was greeted by friendly staff at reception who kindly checked me in much earlier than usual and assisted me to my room with my luggage. The premier inn is an 8 min walk to Piccadilly gardens where there is plenty to see and lots of shopping at Armdale shopping centre. You can take X50 bus from Piccadilly gardens direct to traffics centre for 4 pounds return. The premier breakfast was excellent value. No it's not quite the Hilton but you get what you pay for and highly recommend this to anyone. The rooms are spacious double room was perfect.
