“Central location and excellent value”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Ideal location for an overnight stop in Manchester. At £25 for the room it was a bargain. Room was small but fine for one night and bed was comfortable. Staff were excellent. Breakfast area very pleasant and food was good. Will definately use it again.

stayed here for one night while seeing The Lion King at The Palace Theatre and I couldn't find fault anywhere. I am a head housekeeper and the cleanliness of both rooms and hotel were excellent ! Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff we dealt with (even my request for extra teabags at 1.30am was dealt with extremely promptly) Breakfast was plentiful and with so much choice it was hard not to be greedy. I have never stayed at a Premier Inn before but myself and my daughter would definitely use them again - top marks !

Centrally located with a helpful, friendly staff. The rooms were large but sparsely furnished and a note on the bathroom door requested that we shower with the door shut so as not to set off the over-sensitive fire alarm. While the location was central, our room looked out over a fairly busy street and activity (sober or... not so) continued well into the wee hours, which made it hard to get a good night's sleep. Breakfast was very good, with a buffet and cooked-to-order eggs.

Room Tip: A room facing the inner courtyard might be quieter. Rooms facing the street are definitely not!

Stayed at the Portland Street Premier Inn for one night only and having stayed at Premier Inns frequently in the past, knew what to expect. However, I wanted to review this one because every member of staff I encountered (probably around 8 in total in reception and breakfast room & night security) was exceptionally friendly, professional and helpful. Premier Inn's recruitment team are doing a great job hiring people for this hotel as no amount of training would deliver the genuine warmth I felt from each member of staff. The breakfast room was light and clean and the "all you can eat" breakfast included fresh fruit salad, nuts and seeds, porridge + the usual "full English". All the staff seemed to be enjoying their work and nothing was too much trouble. I paid £60 + around £8 for breakfast. I felt a genuinely valued customer. Would definitely recommend.

Big welcome, fantastic location, dirt cheap but room in need of a refurb!
Appreciated being able to park almost next door and that at 30percent discount.
Good restaurants in the vicinity, particularly China Town .
Don't bother with the Premier Inn breakfast- there are better places to eat just outside the door!

I stayed here recently in a group of 15 males for a stag weekend. There seemed to be a series of stag and hen dos plus other groups enjoying a weekend away but at no time did it feel like that. The staff were very friendly and down to earth and and the location is great.

Rooms are basic but nice and large with a double bed and a sofa that converts into a single bed.

I would defo stay here again.

The hotel is very basic, but what do you expect for a city centre hotel, the downside is the internal noises, also not having a lounge area to sit in out of the bar area.

However having worked in Hotels myself the staff certainly made up for the hotel downfalls.
I was in a party of 9 who where attending the Cake and Bake show in Manchester, the staff went out of their way to help us as much as they could, from the security man around the back of the hotel who helped 9 women unpack there cars full of delicate sugar, bags and everything else we had with us to all the staff who welcomed us in reception, the bar /restaurant to security at night.

A special thank you to Tom from reception who helped carry everything back out the following day so we could and set up for the show, he also came to the show on the Friday as it was his day off and went and got us lunch, to Lisa who had a happy smile every morning when we went for breakfast and out take away cups ready, to Gobby ( she knows who she is on reception), infact all the staff a huge THANK YOU, from all at Team Cake, you certainly made our stay one of the best stays in a Premier Inn
