Me and my wife stayed here for 1 night as we were attending a concert at Manchester Arena. I used a local NCP carpark (£25 a night) and then made our way to the hotel where we were greeted by very friendly hotel staff, paid our £50 deposit and went to our room (21). The room

Thanks for taking the time to give your feedback. I'm sorry to hear the room was not up to the standard you've come to expect from us. Please accept our apologies regarding the contact lens found next to the bin and seems like the mini fridge might have been unplugged so milk didn't last till the following morning, but a quick call to reception and team bring a fresh one. I have personally addressed the issue with our housekeeping manager to ensure this won't happen again. All our TV's are connected to the WiFi and to use any of the apps a personal log in is needed, apologies, not sure what happened at that moment, our reception team is on hand 24 hours, if there is anything at all you want to bring to our attention you can do this anytime so that we can try and resolve at the time. As part of our complimentary items unfortunately we don't offer instant coffee sachets as we have a coffee machine in each room, provided with refillable Illy capsules. After inspecting the coffee machine we couldn't find any fault and it was working fine. Apologies, but due to a shift pattern one of our managers was't quick enough to discuss this before you decided to leave a review. We appreciate your valuable feedback as it helps us identify the areas we can improve the guest experience. Kind Regards,
