“Horrendous”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Made a phone booking as we have so many times before. We confirmed this again by phone on the day of travel to Mrya. When we got there she told us she never heard of us. No apologies, was rude, ignorant and.out right nasty. We ended up staying in saches which turned out to be cheaper and.far more superior for a triple room.

Mira the manager is absolutely delightful and takes a real personal interest. Nice beer in the pub downstairs.

The room was small and above a pub, so it wasn't a quiet evening, though that was fine for a short stay.

We stayed at The Little Northern Hotel earlier this week after seeing Fleetwood Mac at Manchester Arena. I received a call from Maria while we were on the train on the way (half expecting a 'we are over-booked' scenario!) just checking we were coming and what time. When we arrived, it turned out she was checking because she had many people asking about a room and didn't want to turn away business if we were in fact not coming - fair enough! We were given room 203 on 2nd floor, which we were told was the nicest room (turns out it was because it has a window!). Anyway, the room was small, BUT it was spotlessly clean, en-suite shower room was also very clean and we had towels and a TV remote. Karaoke was in full swing when we arrived, which made for a fun atmosphere in the pub. Very little noise could be heard from our room, which was good. All in all, if I needed somewhere central for an overnight following a gig, I would more than likely stay here again. If all you want is somewhere clean to sleep and shower the next morning it's perfect...but if you expect luxury, don't bother!

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms probably quieter, and make sure you ask for a room with en-suite.

The word 'Hotel' probably should be removed from the title in my eyes because this place is nothing more than a hostel and a bad one at that.Any hotel ive ever stayed in has had toilet/shower facilities IN the room whereas the twin room i stayed in didnt,instead they were across the hall in another room.The room itself was basic,no bedside lamp,no tv remote(at reception,and deposit needed..!) Wall sockets were away from the bed,this may sound trivial but not when trying to use your phone while in bed.All in all this place was not worth £45 per night,better facilities at the nearby backpckers hostel for half the price.Sorry but i have nothing nice to say about the LIttle Northern.P.S. there are no towels provided either,no even a hand towel.Joke.

Room Tip: make sure you have a toilet/shower IN the room!

Stayed here for two nights bank hol sun to tues. Lovely place great location 2 mins walk to pic gardens shops and 2 mins opposite direction to the tram and bus station. Basic rooms but clean and tidy exactly what we were looking for. Lovely staff very helpful. On the day we were leaving our flight wasnt to the evening so they let us leave our luggage while we went shopping. A bit noisy on the sun night

Well we only stayed there for 3 nights so I think it was ok. We stayed in a 1st floor room but except Friday night (which was our last) the noise from the pub didn't go on after 12 o'clock. The room was clean but the only thing the cleaning staff did those 3 nights was to empty the trash bin once because I asked. Most of the staff was very good but a little bit unprofessional which caused some misunderstandings. Very helpful on the other hand and kind. We enjoyed our breakfast a lot. The location is very nice. There are a lot of things to see and do around. The street in front of the hotel is a little bit crowded at nights (I guess that is because of the summertime) and since it was very hot these days we had to sleep with our window open (there was no air conditioning) and that was a bit of a problem especially on our last day where we were awakened every 5 minutes until about 3 past midnight.
To sum up, a bit loud but that was to be expected because of the pub downstairs, great location.

Room Tip: As we stayed at a 1st floor room I think it's wiser to ask for a room in the 2nd floor.
