I stopped in this hotel with three friends for the soccer aid football match at old trafford. The hotel is very easy to get to by car, and has good parking facilities for only £3. The location is ideal as the hotel is situated right next to the Exchange Quay tram stop, with trams running every 10-15 minutes into the city centre. It is also in walking distance of a convenience store, petrol station with free cash machine, Tesco Express, Hungry Horse pub, Frankie & Benny's, Chiquitos, and a pizza/kebab takeaway. If you are visiting Manchester for an event at Old Trafford, I would definitely reccomend this hotel as it is less than a 10 minute walk from the stadium.
We booked two rooms, and when checking in we were given a room that had not yet been cleaned. When informing the staff at reception of this, they were very helpful and arranged a different room for us.
The rooms are very small and basic, the toilet has literally a foot of leg room between the toilet and the door and the shower cubicle is located in the main room as opposed to in a bathroom, so there is no area to get dry. I found the TV in the room difficult to operate as most of the functions on the remote had been disabled. We were also awoken early in the morning when the fire alarm sounded very shortly 2 or 3 times.
Overall, the hotel was good value for money and I would recommend it to anyone stopping in Manchester looking for a cheap stay.
