“Great place - shame about the details”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I booked this accommodation as was driving down from Glasgow to a business meeting and wasn't keen to be driving back on the same day. Apartment was fine (when I eventually found it) and young man on reception was polite and helpful. Apartment itself seemed really clean and well appointed. I found the bedroom to be really warm and with the addition of a winter weight duvet, I did not have the most restful night. That being said, I am used to a lightweight 4.5 tog all year round so may just be my age :). My main and only concern in the morning was the shower; I have never seen so much dirt on the shower head - I had to clean it with my scrunchie before I could contemplate getting in... Once cleaned (and despite a dead scrunchie) the power and temperature of the shower was perfect. Just a little more attention to the detail would have made this so much better. That said, I would book again (just check on the wee stuff before staff are off duty)

Don't stay here if you want a peaceful nights sleep as it's opposite The Birdcage club. But other than the noise, the apartments are excellent. Opposite the Arndale centre and next to The Printworks (bars and restaurants). The beds are really comfy and the apartments have everything you need.

This is the worst accommodation I have ever stayed in. Windows so dirty you have to open them to see outside. Then once you get them open to see outside you realise you are sleeping right across the road from a ridiculously trashy nightclub.
The carpet is crawling with dirt and stains as is the fridge and cooker.
Was kept awake by loud music and drunk people shouting outside till 4am and then 5am delivery vans start. So lucky if you get an hours sleep.
Brought all these points up to reception for them to reply "the accommodation is what it is"... Really???! I get the impression the staff didn't want to be there as much as I didn't.
All in all avoid this place at all costs!! You have been warned!!

Great job, The Works! I only stayed a couple of nights over a business meeting in the city, but I wished I could have stayed longer! So comfortable and roomy – while still feeling ultra-slick and modern. Brilliant. Will definitely keep on my radar for future trips.

Was called to say apartment was no longer available, upgrade obviously cost more. Sleep not possible due to nightclub, alarms, and poor glazing. No possibility of sleep here. But nice and clean. Reception person was no help at all. Not his problem. Wake up. Customer service is inportant in 2014.

Nothing wrong with the cleanliness or the accommodation if being used by a couple only. As two couples the second bedroom was really a single room with a double bed in it No storage or hanging units of any description and just the main single celiling light switched on and off from a wall switch on the wall opposite the door. Ok for the night but no more than that
Unfortunately we were on the second floor at the front above and opposite nightclubs, not a problem unless you do want to sleep at some time.
Could not fault the guy on reception who was so helpful and stored our bags while we went and got breakfast.

Room Tip: Try to avoid a room overlooking the street if you want to sleep. Very noisy from clubs below and opp...

I was down in Manchester visiting my son James, who’s studying at the MMU. Not wanting to sleep on his floor I plumped for an apartment with The Works and was really pleased. Fantastic location, and great transport links to the student halls. Rooms were really nice. Would recommend.
