Great location for city centre. Easy to get to with cheap parking. Fairly clean, living room floor was a bit a sticky in places. Bedroom sheets were clean and fresh. Bed was comfortable. Both Bathroom were missing a few light bulbs each which made it very dark as there were no windows for natural light. The master bedroom had no... More

I originally stayed here 4-5 years ago and we had a great time in a high quality apartment. This occasion, August 2016, couldn't have been further from that. The receptionist upon arrival really needs some customer service training, I would have been prepared to overlook this but for the shoddy quality of the apartment. There wasn't a single room where...

Initially booked at the one on the high street? Won't again!!! read the reviews and if you drive parking is £18 for 24 hrs ... Plus you cannot park close to the apartment ... Reception rude as ever and they don't care about their jobs or customers.... We got moved to commercial street which was amazing bar a few let... More

I stayed here last year. Very clean. Large space. Very quite posh. Lovely staff. And would definitely go back here if I went to Manchester. It's a bit hard to find so make sure you know your way. Shop just around the corner. It's a good drive in to the main city. But I loved staying here I would definitely... More

We have stayed here on several occasions but not for the last 3 years. We won't be coming back. The apartments have deteriorated. They are old, faded and certainly not loved! Our apartment smells like a shake and vac ad has been filmed in it! The floors are sticky and the carpet in the bedroom disgusting. The fridge freezer, integral,... More

We parked in an NCP car park which on the sat nav said was only a short distance walk away. This did turn out to be true but not before I had to call the customer service number to get directions. The apartments were on the main road not far from the Arndale centre but the door to the apartments... More

When we first arrived to the apartment they had double booked somehow and had told me that they had no available rooms for us. If I didn't continue to ask them for alternatives they would have left me without for that night. She finally told me they had a emergency apartment spare but the only thing wrong was that there...

I imagine that these apartments were great when brand new. Some of the decor appears nice on the surface. However, our group had a miserable experience here. We had to move apartments, due to neither shower working! Sadly his was not the only problem. The freezer and overnight didn't work and the only maintenance guy was on holiday. The shower... More

The inside of this hotel looks amazing. Brilliant design. The apartments I can only imagine looked out of this world, when first built. They really are in need of being refurbished now. Knocks everywhere, items damaged or broken. It does let in a lot of undesirables. Probably to keep the money coming in, but in doing so I can only... More

These apartments are in such a state of disrepair. Sinks and showers that don't drain, freezer completely frozen up, dishwasher didn't work, no shower curtain, HAIRS CAKED ON THE SHOWER WALL FROM THE LAST GUESTS... The bed they provided in the living room had a SunBed mattress on it and was so uncomfortable I had to sleep on the sofa... More
