Fantastic hotel to stay. I landed in Manchester after coming from Aus around 8 am the staff was no nice they checked me in at around 10. Breakfast was very nice. Thank you so much for making my stay there so wonderful. In future this will be my hotel of choice.

We stopped for three nights last weekend with a family. Very nice staff, friendly and helpful. Room was immaculate, really nice bathroom, plenty of hot water and soft towels. Breakfast was fine, nothing special but more than adequate for the inclusive price. Good location, near to the town centre, but far enough away to be quiet. Would defiantly book again.

Hidden behind another hotel and beside some construction work we finally parked the car and walked to the hotel having glimpsed it down lots of one-way streets. This is a fairly new hotel and it is very clean and modern. We arrived on the wrong day and the receptionist couldn't have been more helpful in fitting us in and giving us an alternative car park choice. She gave us bus maps to get to Coronation Street and explained about the free breakfast. The room was very clean and the bed super comfy. The internet worked immediately. Breakfast was very tasty and even with another big party of tourists managed to keep everything stocked up.

One night stop over for business. Room was excellent, clean, spacious. Great shower cubicle. Efficient check in an check out, can't even grumble at the breakfast as it was included.

One minor downside was the noisy blown air cooling system. Even when turned off there was a faint almost 'alarm' noise, didn't stop me from sleeping however!

Location is excellent, right on to High Street, Northern Quarter with plenty of options for food and drink. No car park, but there is a spot 100 yards away charging just £5.00 for 24 hours.

We were there for three nights. Everything you need in. Top service, great rooms, comfortable beds. Great breakfast. I recommend that people should stay at this hotel. Located close to Arndale Shopping Center, Primark, H&M and other shops.

We have just spent four nights at this hotel and were really impressed with everything.

When we checked in, the receptionist was polite, friendly and efficient. She asked us if we had a preference with regard to which floor we were on. I said the only preference was to be in a quiet part of the hotel, if there was such a thing. She put us on the top floor (no one walking above us!) and towards the end of the corridor so that few people walked past our bedroom door. This was more than we had expected.

The room itself was great: a good colour TV with Freeview channels, comfy beds, a good view and a huge shower unit. The bedroom was immaculate, as was the bathroom. Hand soap and shower gel were provided free of charge, so there is no need to bring your own. They provide complimentary WIFI, but they explain it is only for light use, and if you want a decent connection then you will have to pay, but it was adequate for our needs. The air conditioning was welcome.

The hotel provides a complimentary breakfast: choose from cereals, cooked breakfast (sausage, scrambled eggs, beans), apples, oranges, juice, mini croissants and mini pains au chocolat and toast. We didn’t experience any problems finding a seat or having to queue for plates, utensils or food. We went for breakfast at various times and had no trouble.

All in all, this was a great hotel that was within easy walking distance of the city centre, just 10 minutes walk away. This would be our first choice the next time we stay in Manchester.

Comfortable rooms, efficient service when requested extra pillows. Breakfast choice limited (cooked breakfast) and in a room that is short on space.
No car park but parking nearby, £5 for 24hrs.
Overall enjoyable stay.
