I needed a hotel to stay on Friday 2nd February so I could get some rest after seeing a theatre show in Manchester Central that same night. I found the West Lynne in the phone book on the Friday and as they had availability went to stay there.
The hotel is situated in the area of Crumpsall which is one of the most quiet, leafy areas in Manchester. It has takeaways, restaurants and numerous off-licences a very short walk away, as well as the centre of Manchester being a 5 minute bus journey or 2 minute drive away. The area is well served by bus and the cities tram network which I used during my stay. The buses run until the early hours which I found excellent. The view from my window was lovely, overlooking a nice field and trees.
Upon entering the hotel the hallway and stairs are decorated lovely. I was in room 28 which for me, a single occupant, was very spacious indeed! I had a double bed which was the snuggliest bed in the world! I have never slept so well in all my life! I thought with it being weekend and the hotel being so close to the city centre that my fellow guests would be making noise all night but no, even as a light sleeper, I wasn't disturbed once and upon meeting my fellow guests in the dining room the next day I realised why - there was one single man staying, a single lady probably there on business and an elderly couple.
My room was tastefully decorated with en-suite facilities and a desk. There was a colour tv and tea making facilities which were great! The bathroom included a bath, shower and toilet. There were 2 mirrors in the room, one being an almost full size one. There was a tall storage unit and an open wardrobe which was great. There was a direct dial telephone also in the room. The room was light and airy and the heating was on which warmed the room up nicely on such a freezing day!
Breakfast the next morning consisted of cereal, apple juice, orange juice, followed by a huge English breakfast with unlimited toast, tea, coffee and preservatives. It was delicious! There was also boiled eggs and toast, beans on toast and scrambled eggs on toast on the menu.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the West Lynne and i'm planning to stay again in the future. The staff are all so welcoming and nice, they can't do enough for their guests and for £35 per night it's brilliant!
