The hotel is situated at the end of the ramp to Piccadilly Train station and is a short walk to Piccadilly Gardens, Arndale Centre and is at the end of Canal Street so is in a great location.
The staff were always friendly and helpful when checking in and you receive a warm cookie.
The room is nice and modern with a safe and a fridge in the room along with an Iron and Ironing board in the wardrobe. The shower is fantastic in the hotel and always hot and powerful.
During my stay I ate in both the main restaurant and bar. The choice in both is rather small but there are good deals to be had in the bar. The restaurant food was of small portions but packed with flavour. The price is a bit on the hefty side swell.
In the bar they were doing a meal deal, any burger or fish and chips with a drink for £10.95 which was a great deal as a pint of Lager costs £4.20 and the Fish and Chips were around £11 by themselves. The problem was always the service. You could find a table straight away but if you weren't near the bar sometimes the staff missed you. When they did take your drinks order it took an age for them to turn up at the table. The same with the food, it took an age for the food to be cooked and served at the table (up to 45mins for a starter) even when it was quiet. if you don't stipulate you want a starter and a main course then everything turns up at once. When it came to getting the bill almost every night the meal deal wasn't put on so you had to wait for this to be sorted out.
The gym in the hotel has a good mix of weights and CV equipment situated on the first floor next to all the conference rooms.
Overall the hotel is nice, clean, modern and in a great location but if you're in a rush for food it might be better to eat out.
