My husband and I stayed here in April, 2015 for 4 nights. The purpose of our stay was a soccer game at Old Trafford, so because of the ideal location of this hotel and it's proximity to the stadium we chose to stay here. The hotel is nice, although a little outdated. It could use a little updating, and the... More

We were down for 3 nights for the local derby football match and a concert. The hotel is clean and comfortable and only 5 minutes walk to the tram stop from which you can get just about anywhere in Manchester.
