We booked to stay here for 2 nights in December as location was good to do some Christmas shopping. The reception itself was nice and clean and The room itself was clean. The bed however was the worst bed we have slept on. It was hard and uncomfortable and the pillows were flat. We had the worst night sleep ever.... More

This hotel is perfect if your staying in Manchester, don't let the fact it's in Salford turn you off as it's right opposite a tram station and it's 10 minutes into Deansgate. The rooms are spotless and designed in a modern funky way, and the shower is the best I've ever had in a hotel - and i've stayed in... More

As far as budget hotels go, this is one off the best. The room was very well laid out and modern and most importantly clean ! It was in a brilliant location for an event I was attending at Bowlers. Close to Media city, several places to eat, shops and the tram to the airport/city center stops right outside. Old... More

We stayed here last week, it was perfect for us going to watch Wicked at the Lowry. Staff here were brilliant and so helpful. Parking is only £3 a night. Beds are a little hard but I slept brilliantly. I would definitely recommend it for the price payed and will be back. Thanks

Let's get the positives out of the way with first. The room was clean. Negatives. £84 for one night in a 3 person room not exactly a budget price for the night we had. The third bed wasn't made up which was also a bunk above the main bed. The pillows were flat. The bed was rock solid. Only 2... More
