how to get to this hotel? pls help!

Hi all, i'm going to stay at Manchester Marriot Victoria & Albert Hotel. I'll be taking train from York and will reach Victoria station. How do i get from Victoria station to Salford Central station which is the nearest to the hotel? or is there any bus which i can take from Victoria station to the hotel? Thanks in advance!

There isa train from Mancheeter Voctiria to Salford Central but it's still a half mile walk from there to your hotel. If you have luggage it would be easier to take a taxi from Victoria.

But if you do still want to take the train then are very frequent -

there's one every 5 or 10 minutes. And the journey only takes 5 minutes.

There isn't a bus that's any easier.

Hi reistarz.

Single fare is GBP 0.95 after 9.30am or GBP 1.25 before 9.30am. No need to book in advance, buy your ticket at Victoria Station when you arrive.

Web site for all Manchester's buses, trams and trains is

www.GMPTE.com

Good info, as always, from Cheshire cat. However, I think it would be easiest to get a cab. Shouldn't cost much more than ��5, probably less. Be about 5-10 minute journey time, depending on the time of day.

Yes, forget the train idea - too much hassle and still quite a walk. Also too far to walk from Victoria to the hotel. Taxi cab is ideal - quite short trip so lowish cost. You've made a good choice of hotel, by the way.
