Receptionist's English was not good and we had difficulty getting her to understand our problems. Our room was dull and shabby but very clean. The fan in the bathroom was very noisy and the bathroom door hit against the loo. There was no shaving socket for our electric brushes. There was lots of corridor noise from doors which made sleep...

Absolutely terrible hotel. Clearly the rooms are converted student halls. It isn't even possible to walk around the bed. Avoid at all costs. Walls paper thin. Manager was awful when I complained while he receptionist looked embarrassed.

This hotel is a short distance from both Piccadilly and Oxford Road stations, which is very handy. The staff were friendly. My annoyance here was when I checked in, the hotel had booked me in under the wrong name (got my first name and surname the wrong way round). Given that I book online I would expect that no one...

great service - friendly helpful staff. Room compact but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast included in our booking which made it an even better deal for a city hotel on a Friday night. Didn't find it noisy. Would stay again. Definitely recommend.

The old Days Inn Hotel has been remodeled as The Pendulum - essentially all the same as it was before! The rooms I am sure were once student accommodation, they are small but I guess functional is the best way to describe them. No AC and the heating was on full blast! The window only opens a fraction so it... More

Location: The Pendulum Hotel is located about a 5-7 minute walk from Piccadily Station in the centre of Manchester. This is very convenient as you have access to the MetroLink, bus services and the train service. There are lots of pubs and restaurants within walking distance so getting meal should be no problem at all. Rooms: We stayed for 1... More

Thank you for your kind recommendation and pleased that your compact and cosy 'City Double' room was comfortable, well-furnished and perfect for an overnight stay. Whilst our 'City-Doubles' offer great value hotel rooms in a city-central position, our ‘Classic-Double' or Twin rooms do offer more space if this is an important consideration for a longer stay. We hope to extend... More

Stayed overnight at this hotel last week. The staff were friendly and efficient and the room was nice and clean with all facilities you would expect. A short walk out of the city centre just passed canal street. Stayed bed and breakfast, breakfast was buffet style lots to choose from.

Everything was good for if you are looking for a economic stay.But my main problem was that it took more Than 20 minutes to check in.I booked it online and payed for the room already and they didn't had my reservation. So the reception remade the reservation while they wanted to hold the price of the room in my visa.... More

We pride ourselves on offering great value, friendly hotel accommodation in the heart of the city centre, so we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in a “decent room” with a nice breakfast, all at a very good price. It is unfortunate that the 3rd party booking reservation you made (not booked with us directly) had not been... More

Modern, clean, well presented hotel with helpful pleasant staff and a good city centre location. The compact room was quite small, but spotlessly clean and the fixtures and fittings were modern and clean and tidy. We didn't eat there with its close proximity to all the many restaurant options of city centre Manchester. The fatal flaw is that the hotel... More

Pleased to read that you found our hotel to be modern, clean and well-presented with helpful, pleasant staff. We are genuinely sorry that you encountered some disturbance from a couple of late night revellers. Whilst it’s not a common occurrence; weekends are definitely the busiest and most popular time for every bar, club, hotel and restaurant in the city centre.... More

The rooms were always clean throughout my stay. The breakfast was really filling. The staff was friendly and smiling all the time. Location was really perfect close to both city centre and Piccadilly station. The only mysterious thing I found out after returning home is that 50£ deposit they required when checking in besides the full fare must not have... More

Thank you and delighted that overall we were a very good place to stay with clean rooms, good breakfasts and a smiling, friendly team. It is our hotel policy to take a pre-authorised £50 deposit, which covers for any incidentals. The £50 pre-authorisation is then removed when no incidental charges have occurred. Thank you for your kind comments and feedback... More
