Firstly, this isn't the premier inn right near Piccadilly station as a previous reviewer said. Its 0.7miles (15mins walk) away on Portland street. The prices he quoted as £35/night were very different also. I paid £109/night midweek!

I stayed there for a work conference when our usual hotel was fully booked. I was apprehensive having never stayed at a premier inn before. It was much better than I was expecting. Very friendly staff at reception that always acknowledged us coming & going & couldn't be more helpful.

My room was warm, comfortable & clean. The shower was really hot with ample supply of water. The 30mins free wifi was handy & the price for a whole day is only £3. I would have liked a shower cap to be provided, but a minor thing.

A colleague arrived at 11pm & once in the room, realised that the towels were used & the room hadn't been cleaned. He had to wait at reception 30mins for it to be ready. He hated the whole hotel experience & would never stay there again. Others in the team said they have stayed at nicer hotels nearby which were cheaper.

I didn't go to the bar or restaurant, so not sure what they are like. A colleague did ask for more sugar for her coffee & a whole tray of sugar sachets was brought to her room. I'd stay there again & would recommend it to others.

New build, so modern and clean. More or less next to Piccadilly, so great location.

Rooms are typical "budget" but for the price we paid (approx £35/night weekend) you can't go wrong.

Fully recommend it as a budget/quick overnight stay hotel.

An efficient, no hassle hotel perfectly situated in central Manchester. It's close to all the restaurants and clubs and yet very quiet and well maintained inside. The wifi is excellent and the room is big with a comfortable bed. Also, the room temperature of the room is perfect. The only down side is that my holiday schedule only allowed me to stay here for just one night. I would have loved to stayed more nights. Also, I wish where was a power outlet next to the bed for easy use of my computer on the bed.

All in all, you can't go wrong staying here. The staff is great and everything works well in this no frills yet modern and fully functional hotel.

One thing I really like about premier inns is that there are no nasty surprises! You always get nice friendly staff, a clean well designed room & bathroom, tea & coffee and an extremely comfortable bed. What else do you want for a fantastic price? This premier inn is no exception. It is located in a very central spot in Manchester city centre & near Chinatown. Underneath the hotel is a very handy Boots the chemist & wether spoons. There is a McDonald's on the other side of the street. Our room was very quiet and I have just booked this hotel to stay again in November.

I spent 4 weeks staying at this hotel while lecturing in Manchester. The 4 rooms that I stayed in during this period were comfortable and clean. I found the staff helpful and friendly and prepared to answer questions like 'is there a barber locally'. As a vegetarian I cannot comment fully on the breakfast but what I had was well cooked. I eat in the hotel's restaurant twice and on both occasions found the service and food acceptable. My only reservation is the limited choice of dishes for a vegetarian
