We stayed here for 2 nights in a standard room, a train from Manchester airport to Piccadilly is £4 (single - one way) and takes about 20mins, once you come out of the train station just follow the road straight down and it's about a 5 min walk.
There was a little delay at check as the two staff (of the three on that appeared to be on duty) were doing something on the PC, so i was left waiting for around 5 minutes to check-in while both finished off doing whatever it was (which i didn’t like), when i got up to the room i rang down to reception for an iron / ironing board to be sent to the room as i wanted to go out, 25 minutes later i rang again wondering what the delay was, and i was told someone had rang in sick (i didn’t care about this, i just wanted to iron my clothes so i could go out)
The room although smaller than i was expecting was very clean and complete with TV, Kettle, tea / coffee, hairdryer and also the two extra pillows that i’d pre-ordered was there (which was good), the bed and pillows were very comfortable. There was a large safe too that was free to use, i did miss the room not having a fridge / mini bar.
The bathroom was clean and complete with complimentary toiletries, however the numerous cracked tiles around the bath made it look dirty (even though it was clean)
There is free WiFi in the rooms, however you can only hook up two devices to it, once i had connected my iphone & ipad my partner wasn’t able to use any of their own devices and was without internet for the weekend and had to use mine, so this was very disappointing...
We didn’t eat in the hotel as breakfast was £18 each, which is way too expensive... so there’s many other eating options within’ walking distance.
The location is perfect and is really the only reason that i would return, i paid £120 a night and i think this was a little expensive for what i got, but i would stay here for my next trip to Manchester because of where it’s located and the comfort of the beds
