I travel to Manchester regularly for business. I do so by public transport to allow me to work as I travel. So I'm not concerned by the costly parking in the city centre. The parking options close by to the Mitre, at £30 per night, are almost as much to pay as for the room at the Mitre.
The Mitre is a few hundred yards from the Printworks, the Arndale and Market Street. Indeed, my room overlooked Selfridges. Location is, perhaps, the Mitre's strongest point.
An interesting variety of glugs, gurgles and rattles emanate from the bathroom. One of the noisiest pluming systems I've heard. It supplements the noise from the street scene. The girlish giggles from a group drinking in the beer garden of Sinclair's Oyster Bar amplified as the evening progressed.
The smell of bleach is just short of overpowering. At least it assured me, the bathroom was likely to be clean.
A small TV, the AF coaxial lead was loose, requiring a jiggle or two to gain satisfactory reception. Basic freeview channels. Tea and coffee making facilities in room. Decor - jaded, basic and well used. Bed - a single, comfortable - but it abutted the window, which rattled in the blustery wind.
Small wardrobe, small bedside table and a drawer unit. Enough room space as to not feel crowded.
Full bath, in a good sized bathroom - towels, soap and shampoo provided.
Satisfactory. Can't say more.
OK, but I will probably look for somewhere quieter next time.
