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 The hotel is nice, although a little outdated.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 decided to visit Manchester for the first time for a long weekend. Finding the hotel by car and parking was simple - plenty of space. First impressions great - a really good spot. From the hotel we walked to the tram (to visit Manchester city center), walked to the Lowry art gallery, walked to the childrens play area across... 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. Salford Quays is just beside the Lowry Centre and Media City with several good bars and restaurants and there's an... More

Really convenient place to old Trafford and nice scenic view at night. It is here I caught an awesome sunset photograph. Missed the breakfast. End at 930am. Rather early. Staff are friendly. Bed comfy.

Very clean, comfortable twin beds, good powerful shower, tea and coffee in the room, helpful staff and the breakfast was great! Much better than expected, especially as it was included in the roomrate. We ate at 9, apparently after the rush. I can't understand anyone thinking the breakfast poor! But we stayed Sunday night and we got a reduced roomrate... More
