“Manchester hell hole”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2006

This must be the worst hotel experience i have ever had the room was so dirty i felt like giving it a good clean myself. room either freezing cold (daytime)or roasting hot even with the window wide open (night time).

Bathroom was as filthy as the room and shower was totally unusable as you would have been scalded by the un-controlable hot water.

On the plus side hotel on good bus routes to city centre and airport, and staff fairly friendly.

Avoid at all costs.

The Drop Inn is truly a DIRE excuse for a hotel! As the other reviewer for this place has written, the place is in a massive need of a good scrub as there was dirt, grime, mould in the room and an awful smell in the corridoors!
The room was too hot, even with the window open - in December! The mattress was like a sponge and gave me about an hours sleep all night. The 'shower' was a super hot piddle of water.
I'm not usually a complainer on websites but this place took the biscuit! Seriously people, avoid this place!

We stayed for two nights in the Drop Inn, if it had have been any longer we would have moved to another hotel. Grand for a short, very short break.

The rooms are very basic, smell and need a good cleaning, especially a good vacuumming!! However good points include really warm rooms, indeed too warm, also the water is piping hot, enough to scald you, and it ran brown when I first tried the shower (once I had worked out how to use the shower, couldnt turn it off). Also a cab fare into town in reality is about £12. But plenty of buses, and students if you are that way inclined.

The staff were really nice and friendly and infact were the nicest thing about the whole stay.

will not, ever be back!!
