I have stayed here on business on several occasions and on each occasion there has been an issue which is never resolved. On this occasion it was the heating/AC. It was a particularly cold week in Manchester and snow had been forecast. I was given the usual large room with flat screen TV and shower without a bath. A room of this size needs to be heated adequately. I tried to maintain the temperature of my room manually but it kept switching itself off. I spoke to the hotel reception on two occasions who said they would adjust the override and thus allow me to keep it on as long as I wanted. This never happened and in the end I got fed up and slept in my thermals. On the third occasion they offered to change my room at 9.30pm, I was due to check out the next morning and would have had an unnecessary upheaval. I understand the need to monitor the use of electricity but with temperatures were below zero outside and the with cost of staying at Macdonalds I resent sleeping in a cold room and not getting adequate sleep to have a conducive business day !
Breakfast was the usual high standard with lots of choice and the provision of soya milk.
The gym was adequately equipped with enough CV machines and free weights.
