Stayed here for the Lamb of God gig at the Manchester Academy 1, it was a short trek there but not unwalkable. Check in was fairly quick as there was no one else there. They ask that you pay them 1p on your card then they refund it to prove your the person who booked it which was not mentioned beforehand - just hope my card doesn't get blocked for a 1p transaction by my bank as they tend to do that for ridiculously small transactions. Staff were pleasant and reception area was clean and tidy. You have to swipe your room card to access the lift. Room was an acceptable size and clean and tidy. Beds are reasonably comfy and have mattress toppers on. Room meets basic requirements - it has a flat screen tv and a kettle with tea and coffee etc. Bathroom is small but adequate - two plastic cups sit by the sink and face/body/hair wash hangs by the sink and in the shower. Two light switches in the bedroom were incredibly grubby and dirty though. Hotel was quiet enough. Breakfast was a disaster! Everything was sat in it's pan as it had been cooked in, food was of a very low quality. As someone who cooked mushrooms fresh almost every day, I can safely say these mushrooms were obviously tinned, scrambled eggs were dried out. As soon as it hit 10 she wiped all the food away back into the kitchen. So I went up and said are you not putting anymore food out and was met with a puzzled look and her saying well it's 10. Ridiculous. They should at least serve till the people who are in and have paid have finished eating! So then she said well what do you want to eat? And I was like oh I was going to get some more scrambled eggs, so she came back out with the pan of dried out scrambled eggs that had been there before and plonked it down on the side. They should be paying me to eat this 'food', it is that bad. The breakfast was nearly £8 too so not exactly cheap. Ibis you have lost two stars because of the rubbish breakfast. Shame cos the stay in this hotel was otherwise faultless. They also had revolving doors on the entrance which you have to push really hard to move round which again is not very good as they were quite heavy. I would also like to note that they don't put bins in the bedroom.
