“A work in progress?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

I stayed here with two grown up sons. It was a last minute booking influenced chiefly by proximity to where we needed to be.
We had two rooms, my single and their double.The hotel is described by a previous reviewer as "tired". Mine was exhausted. and seriously needing refurbishment. I would not stay in it again. The other room, however, had been freshened up and was really quite nice. I used the shower in it as I simply could not adjust the aged, poorly repaired version in my room.
We were advised on arrival that there would be a party downstairs until 5.00 am and that we had been moved to the front of the build away from the noise. Unfortunately that placed me directly above the outside entrance to the bar where the smokers came out throughout the night to converse in ever louder voices.
The hotel advertises 24 hour Reception. It doesn't add that Reception is nomadic and is most often to be found behind the bar downstairs. Meaning, among other things, that the Main Entrance is locked for long periods and you have to progress to your room via the bar collecting your key on the way.
Another distinct oddity was the lack of Housekeeping on a Sunday. In years of travelling very extensively throughout Europe and worldwide I have never before encountered arrangements such as these last two.
It would only be fair and correct to acknowledge that the cost of our rooms was very modest and the larger was very decent value for money. However certain minimal expectations remain reasonable in any paid for accommodation viz. an open welcoming Front Door and daily housekeeping.
All the members of staff we met were thoroughly pleasant and I would want to add that painting was going on elsewhere in the hotel. So the Trafford Hall may be on the way to being the kind of hotel it could be.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family

Thank you for your valued feedback, we are currently in the process of re decoration throughout the hotel, we are sorry you were unable to use the shower in your room, should you have identified this to a member of our team, we would have been happy to help. As we are only a small privately owned hotel, it is more practical to run reception from the bar area in the evening, but we are open to feedback and if this is inconvenient for our guests, we would of course review this matter.
unfortunately we were unaware of your disappointment with regard to noise from the function downstairs, again if you had advised a member of our staff, it may have been possible for us to move you to another room.

We pride ourselves in our excellent customer service and we hope your experience did reflect this. we have noted your comments and strive to ensure feedback from our guests is acted upon.

We had a wonderful, big, spacious and extremely nice and convenient room, and our stay was good. Though turning to the main road, our room was quiet, warm and very clean. The bathroom ok, convenient. Staff very friendly, breakfast so so but ok. Well worth the price, we would stay there next time if in area. Thank you!

Room Tip: Ask for large room in quiet area.

Stayed for three nights at trafford Hall we were celebrating,the Wife's birthday on Monday with a visit to The Lowry for the National theatre production of War Horse (not to be missed fabulous show). The hotel was a little tired, but our room more than adequate, very spacious, large comfortable bed(3 great nights sleep), good sized bathroom with bath and shower,it had been recently painted so was a bit cold until we put the heater on then fine after that. The breakfast cooked by Brian & Jack set us up for the day never mind the morning the last two days we had to ask for smaller helpings so we could walk round, and the rest of the staff could not have been more helpful hey even got us tickets for Manchester Unitd V Shaktar on tuesday night, our first visit to the 'Theatre of Dreams', the hotel is 5 mins walk from the ground and 2 mins from Metro and access to the whole of Manchester.

Room Tip: We had number2 dont know about other rooms

Decent enough place and friendly helpfull staff.

Would stay again if in the area but it wouldn't be my 1st choice in reality.

Some noise from outside despite having double glazing and a draft but if you want cheap and cheerful with no hassle, then its worth stopping.

We stayed here as it is close to Old Trafford - that is as far as the good points for this hotel go.
The interior is ancient, the decor is very old and almost has the look of a derelict building from the outside.
The rooms are horrendous - I stayed in a single room, no heat in the room, the shower worked but with only cold water.
I thankfully did not have the breakfast the next morning but my friend did and he remarked that it seemed like it was reheated leftovers from the previous morning.
Do not stay here - reception staff are very unfriendly and the rooms are awful!

Thank you for your feedback, We are currently in the process of redecoration throughout the hotel, as you may have been aware we have notices up throughout the hotel regarding this.
We find it very unfair to say the rooms are horrendous, although we do appreciate you are entitled to your view, we would like to add though that we are NOT a five star luxury hotel, however our customer service is five star standard, we are a reasonably priced, basic and comfortable clean hotel, We are aware the hotel is in need of redecorating and as previously mentioned we are in the process of doing this.
With regard to your comments relating to staff, I completely disagree. All staff at the Trafford Hall Hotel, pride themselves in their customer service skills and this is reflected in previous reviews, as is the excellent breakfast which is cooked to order. We are disappointed that you feel your experience with us was not a positive one.

We stayed in this hotel as we were attending the Final at Old Trafford and after reading the reviews was unsure what to expect. We stayed in Room 18 which had just been newly painted , the room was very big and spacious with a nice comfortable bed, nice bed linen and pillows. The bathroom was very clean with a nice hot shower. The staff on Reception were very welcoming when we checked in at about 10.30pm. We had a space in the car park when we arrived for the game at 1pm and have got to say we enjoyed a pleasent few hours in the bar both before and after the game. Will stay here again when attending games at Old Trafford .

The location is not extremely bad, four tram stops to the downtow, however it is not in the city centre. I decided to give it a go after I had a look at the hotel pictures and i read some reviews.

The "Trafford Hall Hotel" disappointed me, the only advantage could be the cost (they charged me 30 quid per night, without breakfast).

The building needs a heavy refurbishment. The main stairs, leading to the rooms, were covered by a carpet patched with a thick black sticky tape, to not let the carpt falling to pieces !
The room was not clean. The shelves were covered by crambles and the room leaflets (to remind the customers about checkout, etc.) was covered in yellowish stains ! The provided mug and spoon (along with a kettle and some tea bags), were covered with brown scale. The toilet was the worst bit, stains on the wall, light not working, the hot water tap of the basin was not working.
An electrical shortcut left several rooms without electricity for the whole night (thus without heating).....the receptionist did not apologise after waking people up at quarter to 8 am to ask them about the shortcut.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE
