I was a bit anxious about our stay here after reading many of the reviewers complaining about noise being a problem - for us, it really wasn't even though we stayed over on a Thursday and Friday night. Sure, you can hear people standing outside chatting and a bit of chairs moving about in the evening, but if you - like us - are used to sleeping with the window open in a city, the noise is nothing compared to this, at least in room #1 where we were staying. We slept very well, even though my partner and I are both light sleepers.
The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, room was spacious and clean, wi-fi functioned without a fault, the bathroom was big and well-cared for, and The Ox is in walking distance of all of central Manchester. I'd definitely stay here again.
A few minor upgrades such as adding amenities to the bathroom (there was no shampoo, etc.) and some written info about check-out times, the area, etc. in the room would make the experience even better.More
