This is a former Ramada property and this shows immediately when they can't even be bothered to replace the parking signs with their own brand....but so far, no big deal. Handy car park in the middle of grubby Manchester and with the nice touch of some seating outside for a smoke or a drink to chill out whilst overlooking some discoloured concrete brutalist architecture. That's where the luxury ends though, and once inside about midday we were told our room wasn't ready...right....neither was anyone else's with the result that at 2pm there is a massive queue of people who have been told the same thing- customer service big zero- Europeans and anywhere else in the world are a lot more flexible but I predicted this. Hotel- -60s brutalist starting to flake and peel- out of date as the majority of british hotels are. Tiny lifts whisk you up to your floor where, if you're not knocked out by the low ceilings then you get to your cell, i mean, room. Twiin room barely enough room to swing a cat- hopelessly outdates and flaking apart- two people cannot pass themselves in the room wtihout one person lying down- the twin beds roll about as though they are on ice, so where you started up you can assure you won't be ending up- saying that there is barely enough room for them to move about it- no mini bar- normal- brits can't be trusted not to pinch stuff and not pay for it- car park costs a huge rip-off TWELVE PPOUNDS! Breakfast- too many people and the breakfast area itself diminutive- the most basic of selection of foods and lots had run out and wasn't replaced with haste. I had a bit of fruit and left. All in all poor, but being Britain, what do you expect?
