We booked this hotel mainly on the previous reviews and can only agree with all the positive responses from other guests. We stayed in room 401 which overlooked the plaza. The room had a huge picture window where it was lovely to sit on the sofa watching the world go by. The hotel is very central to the city and the quirky little cafes and restaurants in the Northern Quarter. The room was spotless and the bed very comfortable also the staff could not do enough to help out with any queries regarding best places to park, eat and visit. The breakfast was more than acceptable it did not have a huge choice of hot food however, what was available was well cooked, hot and tasty. The continental breakfast was as good as any 4 star hotel that I have stayed in. We would definitely stay here again if visiting Manchester.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking the Plaza

I was on a business trip with work & wasnt feeling that great when I arrived so just wanted to relax in my room before a training day the next day.
There was a short wait at reception desk (reception area is quite small) and only 2 people serving but I was checked in very quickly & advised of the free breakfast in the morning & also complimentary wifi throughout the hotel!
My room was very comfortable & the Shower was HUGE & looked very high quality (no bath)
The room was quiet- I managed to get a great sleep & the bed was super comfy!
Only down side was my room was freezing even after turning the air conditioning off- but this could also be down to me not feeling 100%
Breakfast was quite busy in the morning but was well equipped.
Would recommend to others & def stay again if I was away with business.

Room Tip: Beat the rush at breakfast by going early or if you have a late start at the end of breakfast servic...

Quite difficult to find, down a side street, with no drop off point, parking is a 5 minute walk.
Hotel looks nice, clean, tidy, rooms are nice enough, clean, no wardrobes but external shelving and hanging space, so enough for a night or two!

Location is decent, 5 minute walk from most shopping areas in the centre.

Breakfast is where it does wrong, an "alleyway" of a buffet table, very cramped, then toast a conveyor outside this room means your breakfast is cold by the time you have your toast. Biggest moan- THEY DON'T DO BACON!! Why on earth not!!?

Other budget hotels could learn from this one. I arrived by train and could
Walk to the hotel. Friendly welcome, great room, quiet and well soundproofed breakfast was excellent and included in the room charge. Good free wifi. Overall made my stay in manchester even more enjoyable!

Room Tip: All rooms would be far better than other chains. The shower was spectacular

Stayed here as we were off to see an event at the arena and then a night in Manchester. Although there is no parking there was a big car park nearby which wasn't too expensive. Location very convenient! Our room was an accessible room so had a wet room style shower we hadn't booked accessible so unsure as to why this was but no complaints as to the room itself. Comfy bed and very clean! Would stay again

My wife and I spent three nights at this hotel and really enjoyed the experience. Clean, modern rooms. Comfortable beds. Excellent breakfast buffet. And a terrific location with an easy walk to the Arndale Centre and the MEN Arena. Finding the hotel is a bit of a challlenge without a GPS but the nearby parking is convenient and worth the £4.50 charged by the hotel. Friendly helpful staff. Excellent value for money - remember you are right in the middle of Manchester!

Room Tip: They are all good - you can't go wrong.
