Arrived here Friday afternoon, reception open ( during office hours) arrival before or after this and you go through the bar, not a problem though as usually someone around and helpful enough. Room allocated and key given, along with easy directions to our room.
Hallways and decor fine, sure they could do with a touch up but which hotesl couldnt at this price!
Room was basic, tea and coffee facilities on the table, plenty of storage, nice flat screen TV, decent double bed with nice clean linen, clean towels available, generally just a basic room. Decor was tired adn definately needed a clean up, however at this price ( £33 per double room per night ) it was fine for what we needed, somewhere to put your head after a day/night on the town.
many people have complained about it being dirty and run down, however when your paying the prices this hotel charges you wont get the new bathrooms, new carpets and the usual trappings that other offer, if you want these then go pay MORE elsewhere.
the bar area is clean and tidy, sky TV, pool table etc, just like a normal pub.
Location.. well its a good few miles out of Manchester City Centre, a taxi from Picadilly is a tenner straight, however the Metrolink station is very close to the hotel ( when travelling to the hotel its off the Metrolink, out of the station, left, across the station bridge and left again, 250 yeards and your at the hotel ) Prices for Metrolink are 2.60 single or 3.00 return , off peak - before 9.30 am ), always get the return, its better value and runs till gone 12 on a night, extremely handy.
All in all this is a budget hotel and does what it says on the tin, my only caveat os that by the time you have paid taxi's into Manchester and back you may have been able to get a hotel in the City Centre, swings and roundabouts i suppose.
For the price we paid it was good value and not a bad location, we will be going again!
