Fantastic location. Just across the road from Salford Quays tram station, so right in the centre of it. Just across the way you will find The Lowry, The Lowry shopping outlet and the Imperial War Museum. A couple of stops away on the tram is Media City UK. A day ticket for the metrolink (tram) is £5 (off peak 10am onwards) which is a good deal, and you can add the metrolink bus to that for 80p.
The rooms were really clean and of good size but a bit "medical" for my liking. They looked extremely like hospital rooms, to the point where me and my partner were convinced it was a conversion! Non the less, if you are just using it as a stopgap and aren't spending much time in there, then its well worth it. The shower and toilet are separate, and the mirror & sink are in the middle of the main room which isn't really practical. Toilet door also didn't have a lock, which to me is really unnerving.
Free wifi which is always good, two lifts, so pretty easy access getting around the hotel, there was a cafe but couldn't see much action there. Breakfast is offered for around £4/5 but that is a continental breakfast. If that's not for you, there is a pub across the road if you would prefer something else at pretty much the same price.
Staff were helpful and there was always someone around.
Great value all over really, £43 for 2 people (booked around 8 hours before we were due to stay) so for a last minute deal is really good. Used booking.com for a buy now pay later deal which is well worth doing too.
Overall, well worth staying for a couple of nights if you have lots to do planned and need a place to stay.
