couldn't fault the hotel at all, very helpful staff from reception throughout. Organised taxi's and room requirements for me brilliantly!! Only downside was the bath in the wheelchair accessible room. For me personally a walk in shower is preferred, however if you can get in and out of a bath from a wheelchair, its fine. Bar and surrounding areas were... More

The hotel is next to student halls so I would recommend you only visit here if you know students or when uni not in session!! The room was very well equipped, clean and compact. Courtyard and bar very welcome and reasonably priced. We had a room over looking the courtyard which edged the student halls and it was VERY noisy... More

We are genuinely pleased that you returned to stay with us following your previous ‘Great Stay’ and it is a shame that you had to leave before breakfast, which is served between 8am and 11am at weekends. We did offer an alternative breakfast to take with you for your early weekend start. Rooms are available in a range of sizes;... More

I'm an American who moved to Manchester. I had to stay here for 3 days before my flat was available. I had a fantastic time. The room was very clean, the hotel was quiet and centrally located, and the staff were very helpful, especially about finding a place to eat, a pharmacy when I was sick, and keeping my luggage...

This hotel was booked for me, so I didn't have high expectation, but hotel was lovely. The restaurant and receptionists were exceptionally friendly. The bar and the courtyard were unexpected gems, the menu was limited but what I had of it was very good. I would stay there again and will recommend it

We stayed here one night - totally surprised by the hotel. Very smart and professionally run, good rooms, spotlessly clean and spacious. Lovely staff - so helpful.

Basic hotel and as the title says, nothing really special. The hotel is very noisy. Could do with some soft closures on the room doors as they slam shut with one hell of a bang, and at 11.30pm when you've just drifted off to sleep after a really long day of travelling and meetings, it's not a nice way to...

Cheapest non B&B place I could find in central Manchester, room was clean and had everything you needed. Very business orientated facilities and room set up. However, bed was extremely uncomfortable, and the doors extremely loud when shut. There was also some kind of alarm in the corridor that went off for a few seconds every hour or so, not... More
