I have to be honest and say that I would never have thought about staying in a Days Inn hotel, I thought they were just motoway hotel type places (sorry for my ignorance). So when I seen the £10 per night offer in a Sunday paper and noted the hotel locations I was pleasantly surprised.
I booked two nights for me & my husband to celebrate my Birthday & at a later date I booked another two nights for our son to come with us as he had never been to Manchester before; his room cost £49 per night which was really good value. I was a bit worried about our son been in a room on his own as he has Autism & a learning disability and normally shares with a room with us.
When we arrived we were greeted with a lovely warm welcome from Cheryl, I asked for rooms next to each other & we were given rooms accross the corridor from each other. We were on level 3, we over looked the conservatory bar but our sons room looked out on street level where students attending the university parked their bikes. Both rooms were city doubles, yes compact but comfortable and well designed with every thing we needed. I noticed the ironing board was very cleverly concealed between the bathroom & the bed (though I never used it). We love our cups of tea & coffee so it was nice to see quality tea & coffee & even nicer to see complimentary biscuits! I loved the colour scheme of the room & the lighting.
The hotel is only a short 5 min walk from Piccadilly rail station & the town centre, Manchester is a vibrant city, we managed to see the Annie Lennox exhibition at the Lowry, Imperial war museum north, Arndale Centre, Had a meal in the Print works, Canal street was lovely at night with it's twinkling lights on the trees, had a ride on a tram etc etc ....so much to see and do in Manchester! We will return as I missed having a look around Harvey Nicols & the Trafford centre! We enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation and stay at the Days Hotel Manchester again!
