Stayed for one night on a Saturday whilst attending a show at the MEN, so we only wanted somewhere to rest our heads. Have stayed in several Premier Inns before so I knew what to expect. The room was clean, well kept and very comfortable. There was little internal or external noise and we had a good nights sleep. The price we paid (£74) was very reasonable. A walk to the shops in the centre of town was about 5 -10 mins down the road so a good location.
However there were a few niggles. The first being that they have started charging for the use of a credit card. I have never had this before at a Premier Inn. The staff were unsure about the charge and merely advised me to use a debit card.
Secondly, we asked the staff how to get to the MEN arena. Was told "trams go every 2 minutes from the centre of town". However this was not true information and we were nearly late for our show as ended up having to walk, as the trams were not nearly as frequent as that.
The other niggle was over breakfast. Firstly we were told wrong info over the breakfast times, staff told us they served till 9.30 when it was 10.30. I asked for continental breakfasts for me and my friend. I have these every time I go to a Premier Inn, at a price of £5.25. I was told they don't do them here and we would have to pay £7.99. I said I only wanted cereal and fruit and I was not going to pay £7.99 for that. The member of staff looked annoyed and said that she "would do it this once but would probably get into trouble!" Not exactly pleasing the customer are they?!!!
If I stayed again in Manchester I would probably go to another Premier Inn.
