“The friendly and accommodating staff make this a place worth trying”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We stayed here two nights while attending a couple of plays at the Manchester International Festival. I like its location, nice outlook over the canal basin and realatively quiet area. The rooms are cosy and comfortable enough. What makes this hotel a bit more special is the friendly and appproachable staff, they deserve 6 stars. Give it a try, it is just 3 star but special 3 star.

Adrian O, Thank you for commenting and very happy that you have highlighted the 'difference'. Every hotel has beds/food/drink but the real difference is the people that deliver these srvices to you.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

My philosophy is that you get what you pay for. We paid £65 for one night as we were attending my son's graduation. It was perfect as it is very central and had secure parking at £10 per 24 hours which is cheap for this part of Manchester. The breakfast was okay - a minimal choice of cereals, hot food and toast and preserves etc. The room was a good size but not air-conditioned so in the current hot weather it was very warm. We opened the windows for some air but then we got quite loud ttraffic noise from the road. So ask for a quiet room overlooking the canal as opposed to a room over the road. the rooms were basic but clean and we had a good night's sleep.

Room Tip: Ask fro a room away from the road and overlooking the canal.

Stewartm, Delighted you found the hotel value for money and, as you say, with onsite overnight parking at £10.00, a fair price for city centre parking.

Stayed in this hotel for a weekend. Brilliant location, walking distance to the city centre. Lovely walking around the canal area as well as near lots of shops, bars & restaurants. Fantastic Spa Facilities and I'm already making plans to go back for a girlie pampering weekend. Breakfast was great, lots of choice, hot, well cooked and fresh.

I have held a small conference at the venue on two occasions and found the hotel to be quite excellent in all areas. The situation of the hotel is very attractive in the heart of the historic and pedestrianised Castlefield area near to the centre of Manchester. There are many excellent bars and restaurants nearby. The leisure centre is extensive with very good pool and gym. The food and accommodation were really good. The hotel was very good value. The main attraction however are the staff who were consistently helpful and friendly.

Warmly recommended

just back from manchester and stayed at the castlefield hotel for 2 nights but ended up there for 3 as we enjoyed it so much
no complaints at all room was clean and staff were lovely( apart from the girl in the breakfast area in the morning she made you feel very unwelcome in there)
we enjoyed the swimming pool steam room and sauna
food and drink was good from the bar and a good price
slap bang in the center and we made it all round manchester on the free bus system
we will be back
thank you to all the staff who made our stay so enjoyable

I stay at the Castlefeild Hotel when I am in Manchester, which is infrequently but a few times a year. A good location within 15 mins walking of most places within the City centre.

Whilst I stayed last time there was a loud intruder alarm going off at a building across the road meaning I couldn’t sleep, whilst this was clearly not the hotels fault they moved me to a quieter room which was a god send given I had a early start and a long drive the next morning.

Room Tip: One away from the main road is preferable.

This hotel is well located and is in good walking distance to shopping and dining. Located by a canal and historical sites. Room is certainly adequate and staff friendly and helpful. We would stay there again without question.
