Stayed with a friend in May as we were going to a gig in manchester.
The staff were friendly enough on check in and the room (5th floor I believe) was nice and clean. Exactly what you would expect from a premier inn. We asked for a quiet room and sure enough we were given a quiet section of the hotel.
Before we left for the gig we ate in the restaurant on site. We were trying to hurry so we could get there early and told the waiter this but he didn't really seem too bothered. When we were ready to order he was no where to be found, and then when we did see him (at the till) and shouted him over he put a finger up at us and asked us to wait. Not the best service. We ordered pizza and chips between the two of us, the pizza was small and not very tasty and the chips were not fully cooked. Didn't have a great experience of the restaurant so would advise to steer clear on your visit.
The room, although On the fifth floor had work going on the street below our window and as it started at 7am, our sleep was cut short. It didn't bother us too much but when we mentioned this on check out the lady asked us if we knew about the good night guarantee and refunded us for the stay!
Overall I would say stay for the rooms but avoid the restaurant!!!
