Great location to walk into the city or use the central train station. Very comfortable room and pleasant staff. Excellent breakfast options though a bit expensive at £15.50. One big issue we had was with locating the car park. The hotel website suggests a post code to use on your sat nav but our device, having found the hotel, couldn't tell us how to access the car park. I thought directions would be useful and hope the hotel web-site will soon be of more use in this regard as we had frustrating tours of the city, passing the hotel three times, before deciding to ignore a no entry sign. It seems that many travellers had similar trouble and the that the hotel staff often have to direct weary drivers.
If you find the hotel on your right as you drive by on London Road, take the second left (Granby Row). Turn right onto Echo Street. Turn right onto Fairfield Street. Go straight over the lights on Fairfield Street. Do a hairpin right onto Travis Street. Turn left onto Berry Street. The car park will be on your left. You will need to call the hotel or have someone go to reception for the entry code. If you pass the hotel on your left, take a right and turn round as soon as possible as you will soon be on an unavoidable tour of Manchester.
I wish we had this information on our arrival.
Apart from this, however, the hotel and its people were great.
