Stayed for 2 nights at the Castlefield Hotel on 30/31st December where we were meeting friends for New Years Eve.
There were a couple of reasons we chose this hotel, one of the reasons was because of their secure car park which was available at an extra cost of £10 per 24 hours which was a good price and the other because of the swimming pool / leisure facilities.
First impressions of the hotel were lovely, the reception / bar area felt very welcoming and the receptionist was lovely, she even recognised my name from when I booked about 6 weeks before which was nice.
Our room overall was very nice, a good size and was clean. The only thing I would say about the room was the windows which were very drafty and I could hear traffic from them and the lighting was quite poor, I had a bit of a nightmare trying to do my makeup before I went out!!
We did not have breakfast as we met our friends out of the hotel and with regards to meals, we didn't eat at the hotel but we saw a couple of meals coming out and they looked lovely.
The hotel was set a little but out of time which was fine. It was within 10 mins walk of Deansgate Locks so we visited these bars on our first night.
Because we stayed on new year eve, the hotel was closing by 12pm on New Year's Day so when we checked in, we were told we had to move our car out from the car park before this time. As we were paying for parking per 24 hours, we had timed out check in with the time we wanted to leave on the following day (because of parking), had we have known this beforehand, we would have travelled up much earlier on the day of arrival.
That set aside, we had a very enjoyable visit to Manchester and the hotel made this more enjoyable. We would stay again when we visit next time.
