Stayed here over the weekend (30th November) as a group of five. We booked two rooms one that had a double bed and three singles and a second room with a double bed.
The hotel was easy to find and ample parking was provided. Parking was free of charge and we were allowed to leave our car in the car park while visiting Manchester the following day.
Reception were always happy to help and provided access to a direct line to a local taxi firm which charged £15 from Oldham to Manchester (approx 15-20 minute taxi ride)
The hotel was quite busy when we arrived, however reception had two colleagues quickly assisting guests and ensuring everyone was allocated a room. We were also given a small packet of biscuits each to go with our cup of tea in the morning. My friends and I were quite surprised by this as for a budget hotel you usually expect nothing but the most basic!
The staff on the reception desk were very friendly and chatty and made us all feel welcome.
Both rooms were on the 4th floor and easy to access. The rooms were clean with fresh bedding, additional towels and pillows all provided (Travelodge could take a note out of this book! When I book a room for three I expect three bath towels!).
Although a little dated they provided everything you needed for a brief stay in Manchester. A selection of tea and coffees were provided including sachets of Cadburys hot chocolate! :) A real nice touch!
The bathrooms in room 405 and 401 were spotlessly clean, the suites had minor cosmetic damage but were fully functional. We were even provided with a selection of toiletries including shower gel, shampoo and a toothbrush/paste kit. My friends and I were in agreement that these little extras really do make the stay a whole lot nicer. My only complain would be the pressure of the showers, they could have done with being a little faster flowing!
The beds were comfy and easy to fall to sleep in and I was surprised to find I didn't roll towards the middle! The electric heaters in both rooms were fully functional and all of the TV sets worked. The rooms were not air conditioned however unlike most hotels the windows in these rooms opened quite far allowing for a lot of air flow.
Very quick and easy again with exceptionally friendly staff.
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel while visiting Manchester for a event at the Arena its close proximity and the fact it was £24 a night instead of £145 like the Travelodge sweetened the deal. For a Saturday night you really can't find cheaper in the area.
The staff at the hotel really were great and a credit to the hotel and I look forward to staying again the next time I visit Manchester.
