My partner and I stayed at this hotel in a King room for one night midweek to attend a concert at the MEN.
Basically think Travelodge but with better facilities and a gym.
About a 10 min taxi from Picadilly station.
Lovely staff on reception/bar.
Nice bar area.
Good sized room.
Comfy bed/black out curtains
Free wifi in room.
Plugs are next to the mirror (but see below).
Fab pool/gym/squash courts/cardio room/weights room/sauna/steam (pool was lovely and warm!)
We turned up and couldn't get into the car park as it was full of gym users. Also once you're in the car park queue you can't get out of it although you've no guarantee it'll move for an hour or so!
The room was a bit battered in places. A broken lampshade etc but to us for one night it wasn't of importance.
The biggest issue was the lack of plugs! There were only 2 plugs in the whole room!! That's right, just two and neither were next to the bed??? (So couldn't charge mobile next to bed/use as alarm). Plus both were already in use!!
One had the wifi box plugged in it and the other had the TV.
So if you wanted a cuppa you had to sacrifice either the wifi or TV! Same for drying hair/straightening hair so it didn't go down well with my other half!!
Overall: a good value hotel. I'd bring a plug adaptor and arrange to arrive at gym/car park off peak time but I would definitely stay here again. A better than good budget hotel.
We didn't eat in hotel so can't comment on food.
