It's a real shame because I stayed here 6 years ago. I saw an offer on it and decided to book again. The room was for 2 people for 2 nights and advertised as double. I kid you not, it just fit a double bed in. The "shame" part is that I wanted it to be good. Staff are really...

Stayed one night and that was enough. Bar food was greasy fish and soggy "chips" cooked in what was clearly old fat. There were hairs on the bed covers, dirt in the sink and half used complimentary shampoo. The hotel had builders in who started banging and hammering at 8:00am,with no warning. And breakfast, it took so long to come...

Great service - we found all the staff to be welcoming and friendly. The twin room was cosy and comfortable and the hotel's leisure facilities are excellent. The leisure club seems popular with locals and you can see why. Very pleasant relaxing hotel.

For a family of 2 parents and 3 children, we loved the room, the facilities, pool, and Jacuzzi. Breakfast was great too! A lot of hotels just don't think to have a jug of water at the table, and that made a great difference for me, as I'm always thirsty when I wake up! We will most definitely be booking...

I always book here when I am in the Manchester area. Rooms are clean and tidy, the beds are very comfortable and allow you to get a great nights sleep. The hotel has a leisure complex that looks amazing but I have never used it (Not Enough Time on my part). Breakfast is always good. The team are a credit...
