“Brilliant budget hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

So very impressed with this Premier Inn.
The receptionist was very friendly, efficient and helpful. The room (602) was spotless and a decent size.

I didn't eat dinner but did have breakfast, buffet style, all food looked very fresh and plenty of choice. The waitress (Sammi) was so polite and friendly for early in the morning!

This hotel is well positioned for Piccadilly and Central Manchester. I will definitely stay here again and would recommend it. I do a lot of travelling for work and so on my own, in this hotel I felt very safe as a lone women traveller.

Stayed October 2013, travelled on business

We have stayed in central Manchester on previous occasions in various priced hotels, but this couldn't be beaten. Fantastic central location with car parking directly opposite the hotel. Clean rooms with all the amenities you need for an overnight stay, plus a great breakfast in the morning. If I wanted to be really fussy I would say the pillows are a bit hard and the beds could be more spacious, overall a brilliant budget priced hotel that will be hardtop beat.

Room Tip: The higher up you are the less noise from the traffic outside.

Thank you for your feedback on the hotel.

I hope that the location suited your needs for your trip to Manchester. The hotel rates do remain competitive to the rest of our competitors and good to see you got a valuable deal.

We do have two choice of pillows in the room. The firm pillows are located on the bed and soft pillows in the wardrobe. This is across the Premier Inn estate if you choose to stay with the brand again, just a helpful tip for you in the future.

We hope to welcome you into Manchester again in the near future!

Hotel is in a great location for visiting Manchester. It is very close to Manchester Piccadilly main line & tram station & within easy walking distance of many attractions/shops/restaurants etc. and to catch one of the many trams to the suburbs. All the staff in this busy hotel were great and happily provide a map or giving advice on the best way to get to places. This is another Premier Inn hotel where a small safe would be welcome in the room. I would have appreciated the hotel providing an order & pay for a morning paper service, a few Premier Inn hotels are doing this.
We eat in the restaurant for breakfast on the first day but found better food for less than half the price at Linda’s Pantry 2 minutes walk away at 23, Ducie Street. I had 2 rashers of bacon, 2 fried eggs (I didn’t want a sausage) good portion of mushrooms, one slice of toast & a mug of coffee for £3.50. Larger breakfasts are a bit more & the morning walk before breakfast after a late night was also needed!!! Linda's Pantry is closed on a Sunday.
However families with very hungry children (having 2nd or third helpings) may find the hotel breakfast more suitable?
We would definitely use this hotel again the next time we visit Manchester.

Room Tip: We never order the dinner or breakfast in advance, plenty of local restaurants to choose from or pay...

Great location situated two min walk from piccadilly station and piccadilly gardens.fast check in and check out hotel is fairly new so decor is very good.
Didn't eat there so cannot comment on that.
Used the bar quite a bit and Chelsea the new girl did a great job on her own for most of the time.
Room was big and big comfy bed a little bit low but was fine once you got down .Car parking was directly across the street and was £8.50 for 24 hrs.
Found it to be very quiet I was on the eighth floor.
So all in all I would certainly return especially if you good a great deal like I did £79 for two nights

Thank you for your feedback on the hotel.

I will certainly feed these comments back to the team especially Chelsea. Great to see with it being her first week in the hotel. The hotel location is a great strength to the city as its within close proximity to many common facilities within Manchester.

Fantastic to see you enjoyed your stay with us, thank you again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

I thought this hotel was great, good location, clean and tidy rooms, not sure if its psychological but I really did sleep well here, as per their guarantee. Staff are friendly and could answer all my questions, easy check in and out.
Didn't eat here as plenty of choices outside.
My only gripe is that to compete with other budget hotels Premier need to offer full free wi-fi even if its at a lower bandwidth, pay more for faster access,because if it came down purely to price I would choose a hotel that offers free wifi to one that offers 30 mins a day.

Stayed here for two nights while attending a wedding in Manchester. Reception was good and they walked us through the screen check-in as this is not a usual practice in the states. First room we were given was on the 7th floor but had a generator that hummed loudly outside that could be heard through two closed doors. Called reception and they immediately moved us to the 4th floor. After the first sleepless night I requested another set of sheets and duvet for the couch / sleeper bed that was in the room. I was aching all over from the rock hard mattress. I examined the mattress and it was covered with cheap ticking material. There was no padding at all over the springs of the mattress. You could feel the hard springs. I encountered the same mattress in the livingston Scotland premiere inn so this must be a corporate decision to have cheap mattress. I've never slept so badly even at a cheap hotel! But the couch was okay

Room Tip: Unless you like a really, really hard bed. Don't stay at a premier inn

Thank you so much for your recent feedback on the hotel when staying in Manchester.

Great to see that the team accommodated you in trying to get a comfortable room. However, I would like to apologise for the discomfort you encountered with the bed on your stay. We use a supplier called Hypnos and with only being open a year, we should not encounter such problems with the quality at this early stage.

We will certainly look into this for you as we like to ensure every guest has a great night sleep with us. We apologise for this inconvenience and thank you again for your comments!
