This hotel is cheap, but you get what you pay for! I reserved a room via Hotels.com and got the room only at a rate of £45. On check in the reception staff tried to upsell me a breakfast which was £13.95!!!! (You could get it for the bonus price of £8 if you paid there and then). Considering the room cost this is extortionate!
The hotel itself is fairly clean but it is also right in the centre of Wigan with a number of major roads around the perimeter resulting in it being very noisy. The rooms are OK, but the bed was way too soft for my liking, the staff were non-engaging and didn't seem to be that interested.
The restaurant and bar were empty both at dinner (I ate elsewhere) and at breakfast (I went to the 24 hour Tesco over the road and bought my own). The hotel car park was full so one can only draw the conclusion that the food and service are not up to much either.
To be honest, I wouldn't stay here again. There are other hotels in Wigan I would try first before returning here.
