The website has some enticing photos of beds with huge bundles of luxurious towels all ready and waiting for you on arrival. The photos show fabulous , pristine and sparkling clean apartments. These things are not true. On arrival there were NO towels in any of the four apartments we booked. One of our party managed to get us a... More

Location is pretty good, very close to mall, downtown and train stations. Other good points... that's about it. Check-in was a pain. Only one frazzled receptionist and a line almost out the door. Very dark downstairs for no apparent reason. Even getting onto the elevator was a challenge. Reception was often empty despite claims of being 24 hours. No one... More

I stopped on Manchester High Street, we were originally put in room 103 but finding that room to be substandard we were moved to 416 which I am afraid to say was not better. Firstly, each room was dirty, it is clear they have not been cleaned properly for some time with dirty handmarks in the bathroom wall, marks on... More

Firstly when you enter (if reception are there to let you in) they sit at a desk in the pitch black. We were charged £100 per room as a deposit in case something got broke. When we got to the room it seemed a bit of a cheek to charge that as pretty much everything was broken anyway. The lamp... More

I stayed at this place two weeks on the trot and waited until the second week to review - I wanted to be sure that the first week was not an aberration. My initial thoughts were more than confirmed during the second stay. The place is a farce; once you manage to get in to the place, assuming the receptionist... More

I've been on many weekends away and clubbing holidays. This place is definately the winner for the worst place I've stayed. On arrival there was 1 dim light on at reception the rest was dark, looked so creepy. The the guy tells us we need to pay £100 to stay there on the card it's booked with, even though we've... More

Sofa had totally collapsed and was covered in stains. The bed had someone else's hair in it!!! His clothes were smelling of damp after the 1st night. Completely unacceptable to... More

I usually read trip advisor reviews thinking 'it can't be that bad....' and it usually isn't but this place IS TERRIBLE!! I've stayed in both Manchester locations in 2013 and it was fab!! But I don't think the cleaner or the maintenance man have been back since either! Just awful, not enough glasses, mugs, cutlery, towels, pillows. Dirty broken furniture,... More
