Stayed here for a hen night, it is what you would expect for the money, the rooms were extremely dated and only borderline clean, it is a good location but i would not stay here again out of choice, we had to put down a £200 holding fee which is expected due to the nature of the trip but apart...

Booked as a group in 3 rooms, was not expecting much considering the price The beds were ok, rooms not clean, rooms not near each other even though we had empty rooms next to us, narrow and wonky stairways, very outdated and needed a good paint job inside and out. The breakfast service was surprising, it was the best thing... More

Booked a triple and a double room - they sent us wondering around the hotel up 3 flights of stairs - it was boiling hot - the stairs are very narrow! We finally changed rooms so we were next to each other.. The rooms were very basic..... More

We have just left the Manchester hotel after staying there for my hen weekend. I will first say how great the staff were, especially Rob on reception! Very friendly and helpful in all that we needed. We had 5 rooms booked and initially when we got there they were not all on the same floor. After speaking to the they... More

The staff were lovely it was clean and comfortable and a good location to the town centre I'm sure the hotel would modernise it but if I were them I wouldn't bother. There's no... More
