Me and my friend booked our stay at The Ox online. When we arrived at around 9pm on a Sunday we welcomed at the bar and the check-in was really efficient. During our stay, we contacted the staff several times with questions of directions og tips about what to do, and they could answer anyone of them satisfyingly. Our room... More

Stayed one night midweek and chose them based on location. Very friendly place. You check in at the bar and I paid £44.95 for single occupancy in a double room. Room was reasonably clean and the bed comfortable. Food was excellent and good value (try the black pudding and crispy poached egg) and there's a good choice of real ales.... More

We expected a lot more, The pub itself and interior are wonderful; cosy, intimate, overall a great vibe. The staff and food however, really let the... More

You get what you pay for. We paid £40 for a Saturday night. The room was clean and comfortable enough (no toiletries supplied though) and in a brilliant location for central Manchester. However if you come in a car the parking options are really limited anywhere near the hotel. The major issue is the noise from the pub below. If... More

Stayed here again as I was perfectly happy with the last stay. Not as good this time I'm afraid. I'd booked the room some 2 months prior to my stay through www.laterooms.com and got a rate of £49.95 for a double room (single occupancy). Not bad for a Friday night stay in December Checked in after work at around 5.15pm.... More

Stayed here for the first time last night . It is spotless , warm, welcoming and I will be staying again. Just a couple of little tweeks needed, the mattresses are uncomfortable we could feel the springs in both mattresses which is a shame because that's what is most important when staying in a hotel. Also the food looked amazing... More
