Manager arrived and we'll she was no better then the receptionist. Eventually... More

I have stayed here before but I suspect I may not again. It is cheap (cheaper than the nearby Travelodge when I stayed). The rooms need refurbing, the bathrooms look very worn. the restaurant was closed but no one thought to mention this when I booked. It is walkable from East Didsbury station. Access is appalling, badly lit and walking... More

Room small but adequate. Bathroom was disabled which neither of us are. Floor was soaking wet after shower and if you needed to go in after one I thought it was quite bad. Room 202. Staff were friendly which was the best part of the hotel. We missed breakfast so can't comment but friends said it was alright.

Entering down a very narrow driveway which resulted in the side of my car being badly scratched by the thorny overgrown bushes, was not a great start to the stay. Entering the reception area which battled for space and attention from the Leisure Centre entrance was also not pleasant, but the young staff member who checked me in was friendly... More

This hotel was affordable for the two nights while we were waiting for our flight home to Canada. The restaurant was just ok for coffee and toast at breakfast. We walked into town (a good 20 minutes) for all our other meals. The hotel is dated and kinda clean. The front destroy staff was helpful and friendly.

A last minute booking, very helpful staff who were more than willing to put an extra bed in for a child. The room was bright, airy and clean if a little compact. Was bitterly disappointed by the bathroom which was smaller than the wardrobe with a shower head hanging out of the wall and a plug hole in the middle... More

Not nearly as bad as some on here would have you believe. The bar area, restaurant and function suite are all refurbished. The gym is superb, with many machines I had never seen before. The pool area, changing rooms and the guest bedrooms are somewhat dilapidated with the ladies changing rooms currently verging on being ruins. I actually like ruins... More
