We were most impressed with the hotel and the best part was the flexibility that allowed our free meal course and wine to be taken at lunch rather than in the evening. The staff were SO very helpful, well done to them ALL.

Being self employed, when searching for work accommodation I look for a hotel that is inexpensive, easy to get to from public transport, and has wifi. I searched on line for a while and booked this hotel. It met all my needs and exceeded them: a 10 minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly (railway station) and I had arrived and was greeted by friendly reception staff. The single room had a 'big' single bed, small en suite with excellent shower and nice washing stuff, and there was a desk, TV, ironing board and hanging cupboard. What really pleased me was that wifi was good, the bed was comfortable and lighting was excellent so I could work late. I was also pleased that there was natural light and a window that opens - I dislike air con!
Breakfast was very good indeed - serve yourself from a wide range of continental and cooked options, with attentive staff clearing away. Good coffee.
The only minor annoyance of the visit was that my room was in a block adjacent to student halls (possibly formerly student hall) and the student noise went on quite late! However, I guess that there could have been just as much noise had my room faced the main road.

A shortcut through Uni campus provides a walk of about 5 mins to the venue, so very convenient both to Picaddilly train station and the Conference Centre. Pleasant room with natural light, all amenities, although the pillows were a little sad. Reception staff were friendly, helpful and personable. Couldn't get the TV to work but by then I was settled, didn't want to switch rooms, and browsing for an hour wasn't that important.
