I recently stayed at this hotel when in Manchester to see a Alicia Keys concert at the MEN Arena. I found the hotel to be greatly located just a mile (20min walk or short bus ride to the Arena) and the landlady was very helpful and accomodating providing bus timetable, city map and other local details. The hotel was clean and comfortable and I would definately stay there again next time i'm in Manchester.
I can also highly recommend the english breakfast -- I was full all day after that!!
