Stayed here on the recent bank holiday weekend which was our third visit – we have another booked for later on in the year – thought it was about time I put a review up.
This is a great location for seeing a show at the Lowry, which is what we use it for. Last visit we also took in the Media City tour which is next door to the hotel.
On all three visits the check in has been seamless and always very friendly.
The décor is not like your usual holiday inn, it’s quite contemporary and really relaxing.
Rooms are very good. They still have that newish look about them and are really inviting and comfortable. The first two occasions we stayed in an executive room on the top floors – you will be able to see quite far if it ever stops raining! The last time we booked just the standard double. However we were given a corner double room which was fantastic size and very roomy.
The air conditioning can be a bit noisy but I’ve never stayed in a hotel yet where there isn’t some form of noise from the unit.
Bathrooms whilst small, are very well fitted with a great colour scheme. They are really soothing and relaxing whilst soaking in the bath.
After each show at the Lowry we have come back and sat in the bar for a while. There is always a really good reception from the lads behind the bar.
I must point out before going further that I am not a fan of buffet breakfasts and have yet to find a hotel where I find the breakfast okay – no matter what the star rating of the hotel. I never find the food hot enough but again must stress that it is my opinion and it may well suit other people.
On the previous two occasions I have had the same problem with breakfast here that I have everywhere else. However, on the last visit due to the number of guests staying that weekend, it was breakfast to order.
It was great – lovely lady at the front of the restaurant took my order and a short while later came great freshly cooked hot food. It would be lovely if it was like this all the time although I accept that if the hotel was at full occupancy then it would probably cause too many problems with the kitchens if that system were in place.
I must point out though that the restaurant where breakfast is served has to be one of the comfiest and peaceful rooms out of the many hotels I’ve stayed at. It’s lovely.
Overall a great place to stay in a great location for shopping/BBC Media City/theatres/restaurants
