Stayed here for a business trip to Manchester, wasn't sure what to expect but I was really pleasantly surprised. It looks like the hotel has recently been refurbished, the decor is quite 1960s in a trendy (not tired and out of date!) way. Bar had plenty of comfortable seating, free wi-fi was available in public areas.
The restaurant was the biggest surprise, wasn't expecting to see such reasonable prices. I had a steak which was perfectly cooked, the chips were a bit of a disappointment as clearly frozen given their texture and lack of taste, but the squid starter was better than I've had in many restaurants. Breakfast provided a good choice of cereals, bread products and cooked food.
The room was large, with a sofa as well as a bed, slightly odd to have a separate toilet to the bathroom, but everything was very clean and worked as expected. I slept very well given that the hotel is in the heart of the city and just off a busy main road - very well insulated for sound.
All in all, it was a pleasant surprise and I'd certainly recommend to anyone visiting Manchester for business. For anyone visiting for leisure it's well-placed for Oxford Road train station (2 minutes to Piccadilly and the main shopping area) and Chinatown.
