Clean and comfortable room. Very helpful staff. Breakfast was fairly tasty - Kellogg's cereals, nice croissants among the standard self-serve fare. Ideal quiet location for MediaCity. Would recommend.

Visited on our UK trip because of a match at old Trafford to see Manchester United. If you are coming to Manchester to see United, this is definitely a great hotel to stay at.

Stayed for two nights in May to visit Coronation Street studios & Old Trafford. Unusual location on canal. Walking distance from Old Trafford and convenient for trams into city centre. Staff could not have been more helpful, particularly Kazia who was a mine of information about transport and points of interest. Would definitely recommend

Overnight stay following a concert at the Lowry Theatre. The hotel is ideally place for all attractions in the Salford Quays area. A short walk to the Lowry Theatre, the outlet centre and the Imperial War Museum (North) which is well worth a visit. The hotel is clean, modern and comfortable, and all the staff are to be commended. They... More

Personally this is my favourite place to stay in Manchester. A lot of the hotels can be expensive especially toward the middle of town. We got this at a brilliant rate for a two night stay from Saturday till Monday. As usual breakfast and WiFi was included in the price. It is extremely close to Old Trafford, you can see... More

This hotel is exactly what you would expect from a HIE. It's quiet, clean, comfortable and a buffet breakfast is included. The hotel is located in the redeveloped docks area so the scenery is nothing to write home about. The hotel only offers pizzas to eat in the evenings but there are other eateries within a short walk. As to... More
