We stayed on the Sunday night of a bank holiday weekend and the hotel was extremely quiet and was obviously running on a skeleton crew. We just happened to arrive as the receptionist was attending the bar area, so we had to go and find her, but the service was excellent.
The hotel is on an industrial/trading estate and is obviously aimed more at business customers, but it is easily accessible from the M62/M606 and has ample car parking. The route to it is a little obscure, despite it being visible from the M606 - so make sure you have directions or a satnav to find it quickly.
The hotel is remote from the City centre and shops/restaurants. However, the City is not too far by car, and there are some eating places within a few minutes' drive. There is a bar and restaurant on site which serves straightforward meals. I would say the pricing was fair for the convenience.
Breakfast was buffet style, but a surprisingly large group had arrived (despite the hotel being virtually empty!) at the time we chose and the continental buffet was soon depleted, despite being quickly restocked by the kitchen. We had booked for a full cooked breakfast, which would normally have been a buffet too, but due to small number of guests, was cooked to order. The sausages and bacon weren't the best quality, but were hot and well-cooked. At half the price of nearby hotels the breakfast was perfectly acceptable.
The room was very clean, and a good size. Separate toilet and bathroom. Excellent shower - hot and powerful. The bed was very comfortable. Limited TV channels but enough for a short stay.
All we needed was a comfortable room for a night's stay at a good price, and that's exactly what we received. No frills, good value.
