I booked this hotel to share a friend as there was a special offer that worked out at 13.25GBP per person per night. Breakfast is only 4.25GBP per person and can be added on at the hotel, which was handy for me as I was staying for 2 days but only needed breakfast on one morning, as on the day I left, it was too early for breakfast. There is a choice of cereals, fruit, bread, croissants, jams, honey, hot drinks and fruit juice.
The hotel rooms are small but adequate. I found the bed to be fine, although an extra pillow would be nice. I just put my coat under my pillow. There is a tv with a wide choice of UK channels and radio stations, varied light settings, with strip lighting as well, a small WC cubicle, a sink/mirror area in the room and then a shower in a little cubicle area, with a shower head that lights up red, green and blue whilst in use! The shower was fine and there was no problem getting hot water. I didn't have any issues with slipping in the shower, as previous reviewers had said that a shower mat may be needed. There was heating in the room, which was very handy, as the temperature was around 0 degrees in the day time during my stay on 19 and 20 Jan. The hotel is very clean and only about a 10/15 minute walk to the city centre/Manchester Piccadilly train station. There are buses around and the hotel can call a taxi for you if you require one.
There is free wifi in the hotel, just ask for the password at reception. I would recommend that once you return home, to change passwords for websites that you have used, as sometimes the security can be compromised.
If I needed to be in the same area again, I'd consider this hotel as the price was very good and the staff were very friendly.
