“Reasonable price for a reasonable hotel”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

We booked this hotel as it fairly close to the Manchester Apollo where we were going for a concert.

Our room was small, but everything was clean and reasonably modern. Being as we were out in Manchester most of the time, it was suitable for our short trip. Staff were very helpful and we were checked in very quickly. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in the rooms.

Did not have the breakfast so cannot comment. All in all, a reasonably priced hotel.

We were staying overnight in Manchester after a show at The Palace Theatre. The location was convenient for the theatre as well as for Piccadilly station.
Staff were very helpful and friendly both on reception, in the cafe and in the restaurant for breakfast.
Breakfast was a hot buffet but also fresh fruit salad, cereals, continental breakfast, cold meats, etc. - anything you could fancy. Food was hot too!
Room was better than most hotels in this price range with an iron, ironing board, hairdryer, shower gel and FREE wifi. The bathroom had a slight smell of wee, but not enough to make me want to swap rooms and didn't make the room smell.
Room service was not extortionate although I didn't order anything so can't comment on the quality of food or service..
I would definitely stay inn a Days Inn again. Very impressed!

My wife and I booked a Dinner, Bed & Breakfast deal at this Days Inn via Wowcher for the night of Friday December 6th. The room was small but clean with a good shower and comfortable bed. Our surprise came when we tried to order dinner! Although not made clear in any correspondence from Wowcher or Days Inn our dinner menu was........................., wait for it............................., '---Fish & Chips or Burger & Chips---!!!!! Laugh?!?!** I thought my trousers would never dry! The breakfast was good though.

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay. It is unfortunate the Wowcher DBB deal prevented you from fully enjoying your time at the hotel. We are confident the necessary adjustments will be made, in order to achieve complete guest satisfaction.

Thank you again for your comments, we look forward to serving you in the future.

Average stay in an average hotel. It is close to Manchester Picadilly train station. The room was very small but ok, the bathroom had 2 hairs left in the sink so hadn't been cleaned properly but was warm enough and I slept ok. Bar and restaurant bland but ok - suitable for a business stay but I wouldn't take family

For a city centre hotel this was a pleasant stay. Just for the one night we needed a good base to visit the German markets with relatives. Our room on the 3rd floor was very small but adequate for our needs for one night. There was no bath but a very large powerful shower.Everything was clean and all staff very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the bigger rooms if staying more than one night.

After a nightmare journey from london I found the hotel within easy walking distance of the station or via a short taxi ride. Checked in no problem via reception and was in my room in no time. At check in the duty manager explained a special menu they were offering along with a free drink offer. I went up to room, showered and changed and then for the next couple of hours has a fawlty tours moment. I went down to the bar to find it had a nice buzz but the bar man disappeared after serving 6 other guests, I then went up to the restaurant to find about 14 other people dining. The guy on duty basically turned me away until I got the duty manager who got me served but it took 2 hours for 2 courses. However the food was excellent! Breakfast the next a.m was also great. I would def go back again as great value and near bars and other places etc!
