I needed a room for a gig at the arena. The location was good, infact it's just behind its upmarket cousin (The Crowne Plaza). It's ideal for the trendy Northern Quarter and of course the Arndale shopping centre.
The rooms although small are well appointed with a fresh modern feel and most important of all they are spotless.
The breakfast is usual express fare of sausage and scrambled eggs, but substantial enough to last until lunch.
It did feel abit like a school canteen queuing with your tray, but really what is wrong with a trip down memory lane.
All in all a great hotel and. I would stay here again.
