This was my 3rd stay at this hotel and it was once again of a high standard. I stayed in a twin room on the second floor with my 9 year old daughter as we were in Manchester to see One Direction at Etihad stadium. If staying here for an event at Etihad be aware that it is a good 30 minute walk to the station from the hotel.
The hotel is just across the road from Manchester Piccadilly train station, less than a 3 minute walk once out of the station. Reception is quick and efficient and the staff are very welcoming, you even get a warm cookie each on arrival.....yum! The rooms are clean and decorated to a high standard, each has a iMac which doubles up as your TV. There is a fridge in the room and the free wifi is good, I had no problems connecting to it. The bathroom was spotless and well stocked with Crabtree & Evelyn Citron toiletries. The bed was comfortable and I had a reasonable sleep (I don't sleep well when I'm away from home).
We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel as it was £10 each, which seemed a bit pricey. Instead we went to a Wetherspoons (around a 5 minute walk towards the city centre) and had breakfast there for less than £9 for us both.
As I had already pre-paid the room I used the express check out which was very easy. Basically you drop your room keys into a box near reception.
This is a good hotel and I would recommend it to my friends and family. If you can get a high room at the front of the hotel then the views are pretty good.
