The check in desk is just horrible, the staff direct you to use the "self check in" even though the staff computers are right next to them, the self check in even couldn't produce the keycards due to a fault, that is due to be fixed, so why they stood with us using the self check in and not doing it themselves I will never know.
Otherwise the recent refresh at this hotel is good, the TV's are bigger and the multifunction connectors in the wall helps if wanting to connect your own Laptop etc., but they still haven't fixed the TV channels, some are not available due to weak signal.
The rooms are still the large size they have always been and the card entry system is still working well, but why needing to have the key card in a slot to turn on the lights seems odd, when plugs will work without it.
They still haven't got hair-dryers in the rooms in the last few months, a sign telling us they are replacing them isn't good, if Premier Inn's suppliers are having issues getting them, perhaps checking out a local electrical store, it doesn't take that long to get more.
Didn't eat at the restaurant, did look at the menu but it was so small choice and Manchester has lots of restaurants within a few minutes walk, and that's what we did.
Car Park is the let-down to this hotel now, not big enough for the number of rooms, and whilst there is a lot of spaces , Premier Inn only has the top level, and a contract car park company seems to have the other level, but will also fill spaces on the premier inn level so hotel guests cannot park or worse have to go to the NCP down the road.
Overall good hotel, good location, and clean, but let down by staff and facilities decisions.
