“Great stay, but only one minus - location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

If you are a footpath tourists for the first time it so hard to find location of the hotel.
On the next day it was alright,while we were looking for it the day before, we knew all outskirts and all the ways to city centre)))
Its location good for auto,buses!

Now pluses:
- staff
- breakfast
- value
- cleanliness
- pillows&blankets were super
- big Sainsbury nearby

Chain hotel as always confirmed its reputation.
Great,thank you!

This was my second trip in 6 months to this hotel.
The second stay was equally as good as the first.
Staff friendly and helpful and a breakfast that fills for the day.
The rooms although compact are well appointed and clean and tidy.
Its great being able to order firm pillows as well.

Stayed here for 1 night as a solo female traveller. Plenty of parking. Welcoming reception area and staff and comfortable bedroom. Bathroom modern but needs a refresh due to wear. Hot towel rail not working. Bedroom contains usual standard of extras - pillow menu and tea and coffee with biscuit. Breakfast very good - traditional English plus tinned fruit plus croissants/breads/toasts etc. Gary the waiter very jolly and efficient. A pleasant stay and only about 1 mile from Spinningfields. Will stay here again.

Depending on the price you pay this hotel is a value alternative to paying manchester city centre. On reading some other reviews before we went I was worried it would be too far out from Manchester centre, however a 20 minute walk in a pretty much straight line got us to Deansgate and a few more minutes walk down to the Arndale centre. We walked back at around 8pm and that was fine but I'm not sure I would walk back any later than that as we were two ladies on our own. The next night we got a taxi to the bars around Deansgate and that was around £4. The one thing I do agree with on other reviews is the fact that they charge £5 per night for parking. As far as I can see this is totally unecessary as there is nothing around that might make them feel the need to charge for parking. Again it depends on what rate you have paid! The rooms were clean and comfortable and all the staff I had dealings with were pleasant and helpful. My advise for any hotel is check where it is on a map so you have no need to complain about the location!

We stayed here saturday night for my partners 40th birthday.....On arrival we were early the receptionist sat us down with coffee why she checked to see if our rooms was ready as they where she then checked us in over a hour early!!. All staff was friendly nothing was to much trouble. Rooms was clean tidy everything that you needed was there bathroom again clean tidy...I feel this hotel has been under raited by some its a standard 4* hotel that delivers everything a 4* hotel should at a very reasonable price.

The hotel is located just out of town in an industrial location but safe enough. The staff are helpful and the rooms are clean. There is a £5.00 charge for parking which is a cheek seeing that you can park at their other hotels for free!

Stayed here due to convenience for family visit. Unable to upgrade to executive room as previous visit and finally negotiated two glasses of free wine at the bar due to ambassador status.
Room was the same as last visit and quite comfortable, quiet and warm.
Breakfast fine but as usual the hot food is luke warm and looks like it has been sitting around for ages despite there being only the odd person sittind down to eat.
Paying for car parking is still a real pain. Having stayed the previous night at Holiday Inn Express Salford Quays, this is probably a better option if you have your own transport.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor at the back of the hotel
