Old, semi decayed building. Small, old but CLEAN room. The rudest possible staff. Not a bloody smile on their faces. On my arrival, October 20th around 1pm, the woman at the check in counter (spanish accent, I'd say) had the nerve not to acknowledge my presence for more than 2 minutes, after I approached the counter and greeted her in...

Very good location on picadilly gardens with tramway and buses and 5 min from train station. Correct rooms, clean and with all facilities. A bit noisy. Perfect for a week end stay. A good compromise for quality and price.

Whenever I am in Manchester on company business this hotel is always my first choice. For £35 you get a spacious room, cooked breakfast, decent wi-fi, outstanding location, and all the usuals like an en-suite bathroom, TV etc. The rooms are not mind-blowing but they are certainly clean and comfortable. Of all the places I travel to in the UK... More

This hotel is in a very good location, but it is very dated and in need of an urgent refurbishment, with worn/threadbare carpets, cracked sinks, and generally a second rate feel to it, we were very disappointed with it for the price we paid at £83 for the night, if it was on that programme were other proprietors say what...

For the price (£30 a night) this hotel was excellent. Simple, quick check in, and a clean, spacious room. Only downsides were the faulty (unopenable) window and the Wi-Fi that connects but doesn't work. The breakfast was good, and staff generally helpful. I saw no evidence of the claims in the bad reviews on this website. Superb location-wise...walking distance to... More

The location for this hotel is very good, only a few minutes walk to Picadilly station and the shopping center. Staff at the reception was very friendly and helpful.The room was quite small, dark and noisy but for one night it was ok.

I recently stayed in this hotel for a business trip. The hotel is in a good location, however the hotel is dated and the room I stayed in was pretty dire and the pillow that was on my bed stank like it hadn't been changed. But the worst part of my experience was in getting an invoice. I booked my... More

Reasonably priced central Manchester accommodation. Very handy for conferences and general hanging out. Slightly dated rooms and facilities give it a kind of "period" feel. Walking distance from the station.

I usually stay here every week for work however for some reason, this week I paid more money and was given a disgusting room.
