Tidy clean hotel, great parking. Staff were all polite and helpful. Would stay here again if I visit Manchester again. Twin rooms fair size and furnished to a modern standard. Good breakfast too plenty of choice even for a veggie! :)

Myself and a few ladies stayed here for two nights on a hen weekend, the hotel was very quiet but believe it or not we really enjoyed having the bar mostly to ourselves. The staff on reception we very helpful, friendly and polite, we checked in earlier than stated and found the rooms very good on the first night of our stay we had no hot water, reception was spoken to and they resolved this issue immediately. This did not really effect us at all. The bar and restaurant staff were fab, as you can imagine being on a hen party there were times when we were quite loud but the staff never asked us to be quiet they were very accommodating and up for a laugh. When we required a taxi into the city centre the reception ordered for us and we had our transport within minutes, the taxi journey was about 7/8 minutes to the centre and cost us roughly between £7-10 depending on the time of day. I would never of thought this a typical hen or stag party hotel but it was perfect for what we wanted and recommend to anyone traveling to Manchester who does not want to stay in city Center with the hustle and bustle. Breakfasts were lovely in fact all the food we ate was to a high standard we even ate when got back from the clubs as the menu provides 24 hour food for certain items on the menu just what you need when you been out drinking and fancy something to eat. I would definitely stay here again in fact were currently planning another trip and will definitely be booking into this hotel.

stayed here on 8/6/13 for a concert was very impressed we was given a executive room, we didn't expect it being so nice, it was very clean & comfortable, the staff on the reception was very polite & helpful, iv stopped in a different holiday inn in Manchester & it wasn't half as nice or appealing as this one, i would defiantly stop in this one again :) also its in a great location for concerts at the Etihad stadium google maps says its 35 mins & it was only 10-15 mins walk :)

Room Tip: cant say there is any preference to rooms as the room we was in was fantastic

The greeting we got on arrival was not what I would expect - to be advised that the hotel had over booked and they were going to move us to a different hotel even though I had booked it six months ago. Had I not stood my ground I would not have been offered a room. They did offer taxis to and from the event but how on earth was a taxi supposed to pick us up bearing in mind there were 60,000+ attending the concert!!

We were put into a small room which was very clean/good decor - however my husband did not like the location - only 2 doors away from the reception and the car park immediately outside of the window but as the receptionist had done his best to get us the room and we were only staying one night I was not going to insist being relocated. We were a bit worried as the area for the smokers was right outside our window that we would be disturbed if anyone was in the bar late on the evening.

I wish we had done a full recky before we insisted on staying here rather than being moved into the City Centre. I booked this hotel as it was described as a 10 minute walk from the Etihad Stadium and tram line to the centre of Manchester. It was in fact over half an hour's walk away (over an hour round trip) - and as it was a weekend - through a very deserted industrial estate. No amenities nearby at all where we could eat or drink - had to eat in the hotel and the menu for lunch/dinner was a bit limited. Had it not been for a few of the other guests going to the same event at the stadium I would not have felt very safe walking back to the hotel after the concert in the dark.

If I do go to a concert there again I will probably stay in the City Centre where we usually do in the Printworks area and just get the tram to the Stadium.

On the plus side though the staff were very helpful with requests and the breakfast selection was lovely.

Room Tip: Don't get one on the ground floor near carpark/reception/smokers bay.

Dear Guest
Thank you for your feedback, which I have shared with my team. My apologies for the lapse in service during your stay, your booking was incorrectly handled at the time of check in and this has been addressed with our Reception team. My sincere apologies for the inconvenience and unsettling experience.
We do advertise our location on our website as we are not in the city centre location and my apologies if you felt that this was not walking distance to the stadium. We do always try to provide accurate directions to ensure that the minimal distance is covered.
I am pleased however that you found our staff to be helpful and the breakfast selection lovely.
Kind Regards

This is the second time I've attended a course at this hotel and it's a brilliant venue.
I have never stayed overnight, but two on our course did and I heard very good comments from them.
We were using the academy rooms on the top floor, pastries and coffee were served at each break and lunch was also included in the restaurant. The food was fantastic, different everyday, tasty and hot. The two girls in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful.
We were looked after by Dean, a superbly attentive and friendly young man, who made sure we were happy. He's a credit to the hotel, cracking sense of humour too.
I'd happily recommend this as a venue for training etc, big car park too which is always a bonus.

Stayed for three nights for business purposes. The staff were friendly and helpful - both in the restaurant and at the front desk. The restaurant was a plus - with good breakfasts. The rooms are in need of an update - my headboard was also torn (see previous reviewer comments). However, in contrast, the towels were some of the best I have experienced! The bathrooms were clean and the shower pressure and temperature were excellent. So some "plusses" but do not expect luxury. My bill was not accurate and needed to be reprinted - but this was done cheerfully and quickly.Safes were available, but in an alcove off the lobby. Would be nice to have a safe in the room.Thank you to the staff of the hotel for your hospitality.
