The Castlefield Hotel
Ranked #60 of 120 Hotels in Manchester
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I have held a small conference at the venue on two occasions and found the hotel to be quite excellent in all areas. The situation of the hotel is very attractive in the heart of the historic and pedestrianised Castlefield area near to the centre of Manchester. There are many excellent bars and restaurants nearby. The leisure centre is extensive with very good pool and gym. The food and accommodation were really good. The hotel was very good value. The main attraction however are the staff who were consistently helpful and friendly.

Warmly recommended

Tony B,

Thank you for commenting about your recent experiences when hosting your conferences.
Your comments cover all that we strive to do well and about the hotel's excellent location.
With 3 meeting rooms the Castlefield is ideal for such gatherings andthe flexibility, friendliness and attitude of the team are a boon to your meeting and the hotel.

no complaints at all room was clean and staff were lovely( apart from the girl in the breakfast area in the morning she made you feel very unwelcome in there)
we enjoyed the swimming pool steam room and sauna
food and drink was good from the bar and a good price
slap bang in the center and we made it all round manchester on the free bus system
we will be back
thank you to all the staff who made our stay so enjoyable

I stay at the Castlefeild Hotel when I am in Manchester, which is infrequently but a few times a year. A good location within 15 mins walking of most places within the City centre.

Whilst I stayed last time there was a loud intruder alarm going off at a building across the road meaning I couldn’t sleep, whilst this was clearly not the hotels fault they moved me to a quieter room which was a god send given I had a early start and a long drive the next morning.

Room Tip: One away from the main road is preferable.

This hotel is well located and is in good walking distance to shopping and dining. Located by a canal and historical sites. Room is certainly adequate and staff friendly and helpful. We would stay there again without question.

I always stay at the Castlefield when I go to Manchester. It's not the most palatial hotel, but for location it can't be beaten. Close enough to the city centre to make everything easily accessible but not so close that it's troubled by crowds or excessive traffic or too much noise. The rooms are being gradually refurbished so they are fresh looking with modern linens and decor.
One of the best things about it however, is the superb fitness provision. Staying there means you can use the pool - big enough for a decent swim and varying depths, never too busy; their extensive gym, with trained staff to help if you need it, the squash courts and running track are also well appointed. There are classes nearly every day which guests are welcome to join - and the others there are very welcoming and encouraging. I've even been to join their badminton club a couple of times, and even though I'm a complete stranger to them, they were happy to lend me a racquet and include me in the games.
It's owned by the YMCA (don't worry there's no singing Indian, policemen, construction workers etc!) so there's also a chaplaincy and offer of more spiritual support if you feel the need while you stay.
I recommend the Castlefield for short or longer stays but don't all rush there as I need to be able to book a room when I need to stay!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back overlook the canal basin where sometimes skateboarders gather in the evenings but...

Julia W,
Thank you for your comprehensive comments.
Delighted that you make full use of the excellent leisure facilities and the classes, which are open to all.
As you say, the Hotel is owned by Manchester YMCA but operates as 2 seperate businesses with the original Manchester YMCA re-locating here some 22 years ago and deciding to build a hotel above the excellent facilities.
We do have a continuous refurbishment programme ongoing and improvements are made continually to ensure the hotel remains up to standard and competitive.
We look forward to welcoming you back.

Hotel location and service was good. A short walk to great eating places by the canal.

The room was clean however the overall rating is let down as the rooms are badly in need of refurbishment. Of three opening windows only one would open. One window had the handle broken off the other was warped letting in a draft and the catch very temperamental.

In the bathroom no towel rail for hand towels, cold tap partly seized so only a trickle of water, veneered surfaces water damaged.

May Bank Holiday! Magic Weekend for Rugby League fans everywhere (Held at Manchester City Stadium).
I went with friends and stayed over Friday, Saturday and Sunday night (£40 a night). We had a group of roughly 8 people (Some only stayed Friday/Saturday etc). Not one complaint from any of us!
We arrived to the hotel, where we were greeted by friendly staff, who checked us in. We went to our rooms and I must say, It was clean, tidy and had a decent view! No problems whatsoever.
We made good use of the bar!! All the bar staff were friendly and had a good laugh too (Some hotels can be so serious sometimes!!).
In the morning, we used the Gym, Pool, Sauna and Steam room. All of which I would definitely recommend! All clean and easy to use. My personal opinion, the Pool could do with a new lick of paint! However, it isn't a deal breaker!
After this, We would go to breakfast. Very good selection!! Tasted very nice too! Not one empty/unhappy stomach in site!!!! I speak on behalf of a group to say that breakfast was very enjoyable!
I would recommend this Hotel to anyone. We will be going back to the same place, same time next year.
Thanks for the great stay Castlefield! See you next year!

Room Tip: We all had rooms on the second floor. No complaints from anyone!
