Like many, we left our plans for the weekend late. We heard about Manchester pride taking place and optimistically searched for a reasonably priced city centre hotel. The gardens location is perfect. Right in the centre of town, walking distance from all transport amenities. If comparing the price to the location and friendliness of staff, it gets top marks from... More

Stayed here in July when we were going to see a show in Manchester. Brilliant location but the hotel itself is in desperate need of refurbishment. We stayed in a suite, and the bathroom was lovely, but the room itself was tired and old fashioned. My hubby didn't sleep as the bed was uncomfortable. The carpets in the room were... More

The hotel is a little worn and tired looking. The walls are paper thin. Nothing a bit of TLC wouldn't fix though The staff are friendly The location is superb though. Right in the heart of Manchester.

Good Morning Gemma, thank you for your comments. We do have plans for the future to refurbish and expand the hotel quite considerably so keep an eye on our website for details. Our location is superb we couldn't agree more. Thanks Katy More

I and a friend shared a twin bed window-less room for a weekend gig at the Manchester Arena. In terms of location in the heart of town, you can't complain. The room...well, that's another matter. It wasn't particularly boiling during our stay but we were sweltering and because the room only had 2 electric points, the fairly useless fan had... More

Hi and thanks for posting your comments, I am sorry that you had an uncomfortable stay at the hotel. Our internal rooms do get warm when we have good weather and recently it has been warmer than expected. We do have extensive refurbishment plans which will see climate control in all rooms and also an increase in electrical points within... More

Hello and thank you for taking the time to post a review. Our internal rooms are not actually in the basement of the hotel, they are on floors alongside other bedrooms with windows. They are a really reasonable way of staying in the city centre for the budget conscious traveller and always sell out first. Our location as you mention... More

We stayed here at the beginning of June this year, the weather was very hot in Manchester and our rooms were stifling as soon as we got in. We were not able to open the windows more than a couple of centimeters which was not enough to allow any wind or breeze into the room. This meant we had an... More

I booked a single room with window, I stayed in a spacious twin room overlooking Piccadilly Gardens that was, yes, tired and impersonal, but perfectly clean and comfortable, with a good shower. The (free) wi-fi worked well, which is key for me, and I was even allowed to store my bicycle in the room -this is an upside of having... More

Thank you for your comments, we will always try and help our guests out by storing items if we can, the office is very large. We do only have a few single rooms so a lot of the time we offer an upgrade to our guests at no extra charge. Hope to see you again soon. Katy More

I stayed here just for one night. the location is good, close to train station 10 min walking. the room is a bit tired and the place could do with a face lift. for the price I would expect more. but for just a 1 night stay im not that fussy.

We only stayed at the Gardens Hotel for one evening, but were left extremely disappointed with our experience. We didn't have great expectations, given that it was presented as a budget hotel, but we discovered that a hostel would have been more favourable, and certainly more hygienic. As we had a busy afternoon and evening planned, we simply left our... More
