I can't comment on the rooms but this pub is great to meet up and have a few drinks before moving on to one of the nearby restaurants. I met up with friends before doing just that. Good atmosphere with good beers.

This is a pub at the heart of Manchester, we had a room probably the furthest from the bar, downstairs. It was clean, tidy with a double room with enough space to feel comfortable. Ensuite facilities clean and spacious.
Would I recommend it as a place to stay? Yes. It is basic but you are not paying hotel prices, I would be happy to stay there again. There was no problem with noise downstairs.
People, lets be fair to those working in the B&B/hotel industry. Many working in the industry provide a good service for what we pay. Tripadviser has been abused by those paying B&B prices and expecting services you would expect from the Hilton or the Savoy, come on keep it real.
The Ox is a convenient place to stay in the centre of Manchester, it is clean tidy and the staff are helpful and polite.
So to anyone from The Ox reading this, well done and thank you!

we were recommended this pub for accomodation and food and it lived up to it's reputation!!
on arrival, the staff were fantastic. taking bags to rooms, speeding up cleaning and, as we decided to eat and were travelling without kids, seated us away from other children in the restaurant.
food was really tasty and great value.
rooms are basic but clean and well maintained.
the pub is in a great location and fantastic value.

stayed here for 2 nights wed/thur as we were going to see Peter Kay ( who was fantastic). the place is clean and tidy and the rooms spacious. We ate in the Ox and the food was lovely and the 2 course special is a good deal. good idea to book as it gets very busy. the staff were friendly and polite. it is ideal for the MEN arena as it is just off deansgate and the arena is about 15mins walk away. There are plenty of drinking and eating places within the vacinity, especially down Deansgate. Just be aware that the Ox is a room only ( no Breakfast) establishment. Also parking is a real problem. The car park that is talked about in other reviews was full, parking on the roads is an absolute fortune and when we went to the other car park for all day parking at the bottom of the road the man looked at me and had probably worked out that we could not find anywhere to park and said that it would be £25!!! ( welcome to Manchester!!) even though the signs outside were a lot cheaper, not really a good start to our stay and certainly not encouraging us to come back!! overall the ox very nice to stay in but the people who are in charge of parking need to try and help the business's out!!!

My husband and I stayed here recently and would recommend this hotel/restaurant. The rooms were fine but the restaurant and bar were excellent. We ate there and loved our meal and found the bar to be lively and provided a great atmosphere. Would go back if returning to Manchester especially for a meal!
