Reviewed April 15, 2014

We found this hotel a couple of days before our stay. We visit Manchester a lot, and have never noticed this hotel. It is right on Piccadilly, and from outside you would never know it was there. Once you walked in, it was lovely, and you couldn't believe it. Our room was nice, and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was brilliant too.

Would stay here again, and would recommend it.

Thanks for the comments, so many people walk past us as the entrance to the hotel gets missed being in a row of shops and we are looking at ways to increase our visability. I will pass on your favourable remarks to the staff and also the chef responsible for the good breakfast. We look forward to seeing you again.

Couple of lads on a night out so wanted something in town. Had one of the rooms with no windows as cheaper. Not my fav. room but did the job. Just enough room, clean bathroom needs updating but breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Don't have room with no window very strange and very warm

Thanks for taking the time to post a review following your recent stay at the hotel. Our Internal rooms are really good value if you need somewhere low cost to stay, we are in the process of updating rooms but this does take time. I am pleased that you enjoyed your breakfast.

Arguably the most inexpensive hotel, the centre of Manchester yet it competes with some of the other more expensive hotels in the area. It's location is it's strength. Very central allowing walking distance to almost anywhere in Manchester. Rooms are clean to a high standard. Staff at the desk are friendly and always willing to help.

I've been coming to this hotel for close to 8 years and it has never let me down.

Room Tip: Avoid some of the internal rooms. One of the rooms I stayed in had no windows. Awful during the sum...

Enjoyed my stay, Room was tidy and had an iron, ironing board, space for clothes, kettle all in working order! Only thing which i did not like was the view from the window! The receptionists were very helpful! Thank you, Onkarr

Good Morning and thank you for your review, I am pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay and that you found us value for money, unfortunately we cannot improve on the views from the windows. Hopefully this will not deter you from staying again in the future.

Great value for B&B @£49 in April with conferences in full swing. Hotel is clean and room comfortable and decent size. However rather tired, some stair carpets getting threadbare, towel rail in room didnt heat (known problem when reported), up some wallpaper torn etc. Clearly focussing on value rather than "niceties". Room lighting is rather gloomy when there is no daylight but desk light adequate. Staff friendly and location excellent.

Good Morning and thank for posting your review following your recent visit to Manchester, I am sorry you had a problem with the towel rail. I will ask maintenance to look into this as I certainly was not aware of it not working and we only have half a dozen rooms with towel rails so should be easy to sort out.

We always stay at the Gardens as it is so close to Piccadilly Station and the Trams.

We can get a late train from London, walk to the Gardens Hotel, sleep, have breakfast and do a full days work in the morning.

The staff are all friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Book directly to save money.
