Very basic, you only get what you pay for. Service with a smile but the other guests in the hotel were not particularly friendly. Walls paper thin & basic furnishings. The bathroom & WC facilities are shared on each floor with other guests. It served a purpose but I would not stay again.

Relatives came from abroad for wedding. Opted for Tramways. Major mistake. Can't use front door, constantly locked (rear door shabby and usually had a group of people gathered outside) Apparently some sort of half way house for migrants awaiting Home Office migration decision (This was here-say, but I wouldn't disagree). Room on top floor, no lift. Main downstairs room (??Bar)... More

I would not call this a hotel. The Tramways have a long way to go to be a hotel, we thought it was more of a hostel for DHS. Washing on radiators in hall, iorn and iorning board left in hall way, Fire doors jamed open. We found hairs on our bed sheets short and curly ones. We slept on... More

Perfectly located just a five minute drive from the city centre it is perfect and really convenient if you are heading for a night out in Bolton city centre. Compared with chain hotels the tramways are reasonably priced and the rooms are clean and tidy too. I love the security that is in place here that is why i have... More

Based in a very popular busy area of Bolton, ideally situated for restaurants, take away outlets and public houses, easy access by public transport to the scenic and tranquil area of Belmont. Lovely welcome on arrival and departure, fabulous value for money. Highly recommended. First class accommodation.

a friend and I stayed at this hotel at the end of october on the final leg of a bike ride across the country, the hotel is easy to locate not far from the centre of Bolton, there was a great atmosphere in the hotel with some strange, yet eccentric residents (not sure if they were living there or just...

On asking them to check we weren't one of the bookings making them full I was then told it was closed for refurbishment that... More
