4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

great location, price and overall value for money. Me and my 19 year old stayed here and had a few cocktails and a meal out. The rooms were clean, spacious and the beds was comfortable. The hotel is being done up and renovated at the moment but did not spoil our stay.

Stayed here for one night for work. Hotel is very central (5 mins from train station) , the exterior and lobby is very nice, but the rooms (fourth floor) are dated and in major need of redecoration etc (hotel currently having a refurb so hopefully this will be sorted once complete). Noise from outside is an issue. However, free wifi... More

The rooms must have been renovated recently because we could smell paint but! They are fantastic rooms! Quirky furniture, fixtures and fittings. The door painted like a front door to a house, wellies painted on the wall, great art work on the walls. Hairdryer, iron and ironing board provided in the room. Fantastic large television. VERY comfy bed. We were... More

Stayed 1 night. Hotel was clean and basic. Shabby in areas but currently having a refurbishment hope it brings it up to scratch. Staff were absolutely lovely especially staff in the makeshift breakfast restaurant. Hotel is situated in a good central area.

Staff great, location excellent. A short stroll from Piccadilly Station and public transport on the doorstep for out of town places. Exiting the lift on the sixth floor Mr Meldrew was immediately with us, carpet depicting scattered Autumn leaves lead us to our door (all of them like No 10) to be met by more leaf images up a wall....

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is a 5 min walk from the train station. Very central so close to many shops, pubs and restaurants. Very comfortable beds and quiet at night considering it's on a very busy road. Good access to buses and trams to get you around the city and there's a taxi rank... More

I stay in hotels around Manchester every other week, I love when a hotel can fill me with happiness and excitement. I enjoy being away from home in a new bed, a lovely bathroom and everything freshly made up when you leave and come back to mints on the pillows, fresh towels and new refreshments. Unfortunately, this was all a... More
