We’ve been coming here for years and years and never had a ‘bad’ experience - a few issues along the way but where been a fair few times. Every room has a large bath, filling in a few minutes with a separate shower which again is a huge walk in type and very powerful. Beds are king size and very comfortable, with plenty of pillows. There’s a flat screen tv, these are quite small for the room size but generally acceptable. Fixtures and fittings are getting slightly dated but we’ve not had a room yet where anything was in dire need or broken and never had to complain. Large panoramic windows throughout and full length blackout curtains complete all rooms. Regarding parking, it’s a complete rip off at £25 a night, that’s almost half of the cost of a standard king room on cheaper nights - we’ve never parked there. There is a car park directly behind the hotel costing £4 for 24 hours and we’ve never come back to any damage etc. The suites, especially the very top ones are particularly impressive, they are HUGE. Two large rooms, two bathrooms, one with large bath and shower, a large table, sofa style chairs and two televisions - very reasonably priced too. We keep coming back due to the low cost the hotel manages to keep, as little as £50 on third party sites on quiet nights.

Covid safe night before the wedding, my daughters and I had adjoining suites. The receptionist was friendly and very helpful, explaining the safety rules, room service and instructions on the breakfast hamper. The rooms were clean and comfortable and service was excellent especially given the reduced staff numbers and extra workload. Look forward to visiting in the new normal to add spa treatments to our experience. Thank you all.

Visited with my brother in April 2019. We were going to see the Manchester United vs Barcelona game. We traveled by train to Manchester and this hotel is right next to the station. It is easy to walk from the hotel to great locations. We got taxis for places further afield. Clean, nice hotel with lovely staff even at busy times.

I booked and paid for a double room back in March for a job interview. Obviously with the pandemic I had to reschedule. I was told I can change the date of my booking until December 2020 as the room was non refundable. I then moved the date to next weekend but I am unable to go as my area is under local lockdown. Even though they initially said I could keep moving the date to suit, The hotel is now refusing to let me move the date of my booking, even though they know I can’t go and stay there without breaking the lockdown restrictions. So they’ve just stole my money. Disgusting behaviour from such a large company!
