This is exactly as advertised - a no frills budget hotel at low prices.
Working in the area I wanted somewhere cheap and cheerful to stay near to Salford Quays. Looking at all the usual hotels this worked out the cheapest.
Room: comfortable, only one pillow and light duvet but it does say you can ask reception for more. Room has aircon/heating so room was cosy. No tea/coffee facilities but there are vending machines in reception. Very small desk but actually comfortable to work at with a lap top and free WIFI in the room was great. There is some noise from the road/tram but it dies down once it gets late. Also despite it being a popular hotel with revellers and football fans, there was no noise inside the hotel.
Facilities: Reception has coffee/tea/soft drinks. There is also an option of breakfast but never did this so cant comment on this.
Parking - this is the only thing that lets the hotel down. It is not made clear that not only is it limited, there is no option to reserve it/book it in advance. When I arrived I discovered that MUFC were playing at home and there was no parking anywhere in the vicinty due to fans parking everywhere, including at the hotel. The hotel staff just shrugged their shoulders and didnt help. It would be nice if there was a warning about this on the website.
