The first impression of the hotel is of a medium security detention facility. It is located in a run down industrial area, and has high fences and CCTV all around. There is free parking for guests, and that CCTV is reassuring, although we never felt unsafe or uncomfortable in the neighbourhood.
We chose the hotel because it is in walking distance of the Velodrome at SportCity, meaning it's also in walking distance of Manchester City's stadium. It's not in easy walking distance of the city centre, so if you're looking for a central hotel look elsewhere, but remember you'll likely have to pay for parking. The hotel is on a regular bus route into town.
The room was a reasonable size, there was tea and coffee, and although the bed was 'continental style' with twin beds locked together to create a kingsize it was comfortable and we slept well. Almost everything worked, we couldn't get the plug out of the bath but that was not a major problem. There is Sky Sports but only in the bar, the in-room TV just has standard channels. We didn't try the restaurant or blow £10 each on breakfast.
The location made this hotel a winner for us, we'd certainly choose it again for events at the velodrome or Man City.
