We decided to stay a night at this hotel as we were due at an exhibition the next day held at Old Trafford stadium and this is very close to it. So good if you're going there. Problem was, night we were staying there was a match on so lots of drunken football fans...! On arriving, we easily parked in their car park which was handy as I know other hotels don't have onsite parking. The reception girl was friendly. Definately got a gloomy vibe as we walked up the stairs to our room. The room looked pretty manky. It was big enough (especially as we needed a cot as well), but it seemed very dated and a bit grubby - my young son accidentally pulled the coffee jar onto the carpet and in picking the sachets up, I had a handful of hair... yuck!! Put me right off! The bathroom was dated and whoever picked the tiling (with RED grout) must have been blind - gastly! Although our friends room had a much better, more modern white bathroom so maybe (hopefully) they're updating. Both our rooms had mould/damp round the windows and sil. Anyway, on to dinner which wasn't very nice either. The starter was ok but the fish of the fish and chips was clearly the frozen kind you can buy at the supermarket. On to bed, the floor boards are HORRIFIC in this place! You can hear people below you, above you and trying to creep about whilst my son was sleeping was impossible. The next door room was loud, I clearly heard conversations of the 4 men in there obviously getting tipsy on their room booze, it was ridiculous. I put up with it for a couple of hours then got seriously irritated by the increasing f'ing, especially as my son was stirring. I called reception and the girl called them immediately after (I heard the conversation of course) telling them to quiet down and go to the bar if they wanted to drink, which thankfully they did. Oddly, I never heard them return! But thank you to the receptionist who did act on it straight away.
This is a basic hotel, at a cheap price but sorry - too basic for us! Only good sides were the staff were polite and helpful, the cot was decent enough (this is a big issue in some hotels Ive stayed in!), and I guess the location and car park. Only stay here if you're a football fan coming back drunk, only then will you sleep well here.
