Suggest you avoid the area close to train station, not so good. Better to be 10 mins walk away in city centre. As a starter, no idea of your budget - Mid-range prices - I recommend Novotel, Ibis, Premier Travel Inn all close to each other on Portland St / Dickenson Str - ideal location in city centre (The actual centre is quite compact by the way, 20 mins stroll say, from one side to the other)

Assuming that you will be arriving at Piccadilly Train Station the nearest Hotel is probably the Malmaison which depending upon your budget may or may not be suitable. As another poster has already mentioned the area around the station is not all that nice although there have been improvements made in recent years. The Malmaison is withing walking distance of the centre but you may find cheaper or more suitable hotels nearer.

The Ox

Liverpool Road 0161 839 7740

Small hotel situated above a plush pub that serves the best pub food in Manchester. All rooms have tv’s and coffee making facilities and all that kind of thing, and the staff are very helpful. Home from home.

£44.95 per room

Budget

The Burton Arms

31 Swan Street 0161 843 3455

Cheap, cheerful and a great breakfast.

£30 pppn

Merchants Hotel

Back Piccadilly 0161 236 2939

Simple, no frills type hotel, but pretty comfortable for the price.

£25 pppn

Try these ones...have never stayed at any of them though, so I have no idea if they are suitable for you.

There is also a pub called The Old Nags Head which does accommodation, which is down one of the backstreets, right in the City Centre. The address is 19 Jacksons Row, M2 5WD. Tel no-0161 832 4315. I've been in the pub, which is nice - but, again, have never used the accommodation.

Avoid the station area as there are building works going on and it's messy and noisy (is anywhere here not being built on at the moment?). The city centre is quite small and can be walked across in 15-20 minutes though there are 3 free "hop on-hop off" buses (Metroshuttle - every 5-10 minutes) which will carry you around town from 7am-7pm most days. Numbers 1&3 from just outside Piccadilly station will take you into the "heart" of the centre. Accommodation should not be a problem as it's not that busy mid November as the football stops for International matches, though the Christmas Markets (daytime crowd pullers) do start November 16th. Try www.visitmanchester.com to order guides and maps for free. The information centre is based next to St. Peter's Square Metrolink tram stop for further info. Hotels? Ibis (2 of them), Premier Travel Inn (4) and Travelodge (2) are standard, clean places and go from about £55 per room (d/t/s) per night. For less "clinical" places I agree with Burton Arms, Millstone, Mitre etc from about £30 per night. Bear in mind most of these are in/above/around pubs so it may be noisy til at least 12pm. Still, it makes crawling up to bed easier!!

Hi there,

as its a two night stopover i would suggest you check out the corporate chain hotels such as Express by Holiday in , travel loadge or Ibis in that order of preference. That way you know you will get a room which is of the standard corporate profile,clean and comfortable. Certain bigger independant hotels pretend to be very grand, charge more but don;t deliver. I suggest you read tripadvisor reviews of Britannia hotels and make your own judgement. If you need something a bit more upscale then check out the Jurys Inn, The Castlefield hotel or the Palace. There are many others which other readers can no doubt suggest. You really do need to book NOW as hotels get booked up quick in Manchester, mainly business travellers etc. Express by holiday inn and travel lodge have websites. Manchester is an easy city to walk around.

Fell free to email if you like
