Nothing to see out the windows, room and corridors have an unusual smell (a few too many stag nights here I think) and the lobby is small, cramped and very busy....but over all I have no complaints about this place.

I managed to get 3 nights here for £185 total when so many other dives were looking for over £250, the staff could not have been more accomodating and the location was exactly where I needed to be so I was over all impressed. I did think it was odd that I was allocated a wheelchair room but I wasnt complaining because the bathroom was huge.

I had breakfast the following morning which was better then the one I had up in the Mercure a few nights earlier.

All in all I was rather impressed and would have no hesitations in staying here again if I was planning a weekend away!

Well done Premier Inn!

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room overlooking Portland St cos I had one the other side and could see nothing!

We stayed here 31st March for one night in a buzzing Manchester Jls were in town that night and also Man City playing Sunderland, so hotel was very busy but this did not effect the service and friendliness of the staff they were superb. Hotel room basic but very clean and the bed and pillows very comfortable. Breakfast excellent - plenty of choice all rapidly replenished. This was a "no frills" hotel but good value and all you need for a weekend in Manchester - take plenty money for the excellent shops- Arndale Centre is a 10 minute walk at the most, Trafford centre half an hour in the car (sure it is quicker if you know where you are going !)

Stayed 7-9th June. Room was clean and comfortable - appreciated the choice of pillow firmness. Good choice of food at both dinner and breakfast. Location great for walking round Manchester sites and shopping centres. Best thing was the friendliness of the staff. Good value all round - would stay there again.

Stayed for 4 nights June 2012. Double ensuite room, which we were happy to find included bath and shower.

large room, good bathroom, clean and well maintained.

Few issues with very loud adjacent rooms which staff attempted to quickly resolve.

Breakfast was fairly good value, at £8.25. Substantial choice of hot and cold options.
