The staff were always helpful & friendly and provided great service! Location wise it's brilliant right next to bbc studios and on the doorstep of itv & the Lowery. Breakfast selection was wide and... More

Great location. Decent shower. Friendly reception staff. But the bed and pillows were very uncomfortable and we suffered a poor night's sleep and woke up stiff as a board. They offer two types of pillow: soft, which is non existent, and firm - like a brick. The bed was not much better. Another hotel chain whose branding is on the... More

Located in the busy Salford Quays, great location and very modern up market bedrooms. Parking in the adjacent NCP park is£7.50 per 24 hr stay and a 5 min walk. Breakfasts plentiful and good standard, excellent service and a very comfortable bar area serving light meals all prepared in the Marco Pierre Restaurant located on site. Great office facilities in... More

This hotel is so modern and clean. There was only 1 small problem which ended up working out really well. I was 14 at the time and I went with my mum after we visited the theatre. We booked two single beds but we was given a double room. Being with my mum, we decided sharing a bed was not... More

We were here for a wedding at the Lowry and it is only short walk away. We were in an executive suite on the 16th floor which provided fantastic views. The beds and pillows were really comfy and the shower was also powerful. The breakfast was amazing! The best choice I've ever had in an English hotel. We had some... More

I only stayed for one night. Car parking is around the corner in the multi-storey as you drive in which is a bit of a pain when you have loads of gear you can't leave in a car. Reception and arrival was great. Slick and simple. Room was really nice, modern, spotless and spacious. The toilet and shower was also... More
