Along with two coach loads of fellow residents I recently spent a very enjoyable couple of nights at the Manchester Hotel. After reading other reviews I was very apprehensive as to what I might find. I was pleasantly surprised by having a small, but clean and tidy room to myself. It comprised of two single beds, tea and coffee making... More

We booked as a package through clear cut weekends for my hen do! 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

The staff were there to welcome us in as they always do every time we use it. I organise a coach trip every... 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

Had a weekend here with my mates for my stag party and had no problems at all, helpful staff, come and go at whatever hour you desire. It is a stag and hen hotel, so wouldn't reccomend for family stays,close to town centre and beach, CCTV in carpark

Not as bad as the previous reviews makes out ,its a hotel that hen and stag organisers use so you get what you pay for ! 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

Ok, lets start by saying I have just returned from a weekends stay here for my sister hen weekend. We were expecting the worst after reading previous reviews. Well i don't think its any where near as bad as people have made out. Yes its VERY old-fashioned and in need of a massive make-over but the beds are comfortable &... More

Stayed in hotel opposite from 29th June to 6th July. Noise from here both nights. Fights seem to be the norm. The residents have no respect for the people in surrounding hotels. I thought good manners and a sense of fun should be what a holiday is about. Not at the Manchester. Drunkeness and rowdy.

I have stayed in a lot of hotels and hostels all around the world, however this was without a doubt the worse. The hotel is so outdated it is quite unbelievable, its like stepping back in time a few decades, but not in a good way. The hotel is disgustingly dirty. We had to change out rooms because the first... More
