£149 for a single box room on a Tuesday night is unconscionable. No smoking room ostensibly, but it reeks of smoke; The previous occupant's litter was still in the bin under the desk; one small handtowel instead of a proper sized towel; radiator belting out heat that cannot be adjusted; crusty carpet; No iron and board (told there is a...

I've stayed here many times over the years and the place is fading now. The bathrooms are well past their best but the beds are large and comfortable. Mostly, the rooms are large which is refreshing when compared to the chains. The location here is a plus, central and very handy for Piccadilly Station.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here last weekend, mainly to see the Christmas markets without worrying about how to get home. This was the cheapest hotel we could find throughout Manchester and this hotel worked out at £180 for one night. When we arrived we was told breakfast was not included in the price, so had to pay extra for...

Dated rooms. Filthy and stained carpets, broken furniture in room. Noisy heating. Leak in bathroom. Shaver point not working. Bathroom towels and walls covered in other peoples' hairs. Disgusting breakfast. Had to buy my own wipes to clean the room as obvious staff didn't care about cleanliness Felt like I was staying in the hotel from The Shining and just...

We stayed last night for one night to visit the Christmas market. We had a turret room at the top which was perfect for what we wanted. Room was clean and comfortable, perfect value for the £48 we paid online. The hotel is perfectly located for the centre for shopping & Christmas market. Would definitely return in the future, good...

The barman at first said "no we don't do coffee only but I will ask the waitress"' the waitress (maybe restaurant manager) said that was fine and brought us coffee for two,...
