“Great location - and surprisingly quiet”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

Have stayed in this Premier Inn a couple of times in the last few months. It is in a great location, right across the road from the Midland Hotel and very near the GMex, Bridgewater Hall and library. When I stayed in December, it was just around the corner to the huge Christmas market - lots of prezzies bought and delicious snacks eaten!

I've also stayed at the PI which is a couple of minutes away (Portland Road?). That is also good, but this one is quieter & it has a gym - so if there wasn't much in the price is (and I seem to often see them both around £70), this is the one I'd pick.

What I liked:

* Big, comfy room with Freeview TV, extra pillows and big windows
* I was asked if I wanted a bathroom or a shower-room when I checked-in - really liked this!
* Couldn't believe how quiet it was, both times I've stayed here.
* Great location, near Oxford Road station, tram stop and just around the corner from the free bus from Piccadilly Station
* Friendly staff, especially at breakfast

What I didn't like:
* I don't like the one-price breakfast, £8 is pricey if you just want cereal and coffee
* The coffee at breakfast wasn't the best.

Just one more thing I'd like to add in praise of this Premier Inn. When I arrived in my room, I noticed the aircon was very noisy - but then immediately saw a letter from the manager explaining that there was a fault, but that electic heaters had been put in the room so that the aircon could be turned off. And there was an invitation to request extra bedding if needed - things do go wrong from time to time, but when problems are dealt with this well, that gets a big tick from me!

I've now stayed in three of the central manchester premier inns and this is as least as good as the others. Only issue I had was room air con was very noisy - but this was explained by staff in advance and it was not needed - it is to be fixed I understand.

I recently came to Manchester on vacation for a week from Canada and chose this hotel on the advice of friends who live in Manchester as we don't have Premier Inn's in Canada. It was a great experience from the moment I arrived until the moment I left. The room was perfect size and was extremely clean which is a huge plus. The bed was VERY comfortable and the bathroom was perfect size. We had a view facing away from the street which I read was the best way to go for noise control. We booked well in advance and got the saver rate which made the trip cost minimal. It's super close to the tram stop which takes you all over Manchester, it's within 5-10 minutes walking distance from the Arndale, 235 casino, China town, short tram ride to Old Trafford Football Stadium (GO United!) and only a short cab ride or longer walk to Piccadilly Station. I will definitely return to this hotel whenever I come back to Manchester and would recommend this to anyone wanting an inexpensive and centrally located hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the street if you want a quiet room.

I travel to Manchester a lot on business trips and this is definitely the best Premier Inn in Manchester (and there are a few!). The hotel is modern, and has a Fitness First included which you can use for free. There is also a Top Table bar and restaurant attached, which other Premier Inns do not have. Only downside I have for Premier Inn is on business they really should give you free wifi access. Check in is easy and quick and the rooms are also immaculate with tea & coffee. This Premier Inn is centrally located opposite the GMEX arena and is easy to get to from Piccadilly station (£5 taxi).
