I have been staying at the Waterside every week at least one night a week for the past four months (work related). Whilst not necessarily the most spacious of rooms, they are nonetheless comfortable, with good mattresses and reasonable facilities (including rather nice Borders Biscuits). The Leisure Club saw a significant facelift last year and is very well equipped with... 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.
