“I'd call this Holiday Inn lite ...”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

This hotel is fairly new and therefore the fittings and decoration are all still bright and modern. But anyone who stays at a Holiday Inn regularly might be surprised at the minimalist approach to the rooms. The only storage was a small wardrobe, which I couldn't find at first as it was behind the open bathroom door and a bedside cabinet size chest of drawers. I was staying three nights and had it been any longer, would have needed to leave my clothes in a suitcase. My bed was hard and reminded me of a much more basic hotel.
The bathroom is small, no soap and few towels, only dispensers for shower gel and hand wash. It is more like a Holiday Inn Express really. The shower water pressure was very poor.
The breakfast was okay but the fried food fairly greasy and it was make it yourself tea/coffee.
The area around the hotel is fairly desolate, except the venue is very convenient for the BBC, as it's adjacent to the studios, and the Lowry Theatre. But for me, that is the only reason to return to this rather disappointing hotel.

Room Tip: Everywhere is pretty quiet as the hotel is not near a main road.

We stayed at this hotel due to bgt, we wanted to be near the lowry theatre which it was jus across the road so it was perfect. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very pleasant. The only downside was food quite expensive. Would definitely stay there again without a doubt, would recommend this hotel!

Overall a really pleasant experience at this hotel. The check-in staff were lovely, as were the staff at breakfast the next day. Being a brand new hotel the rooms are in great shape, but even that aside, they're well equipped and comfortable. The only thing I would say isn't great about the hotel is the breakfast. It's a buffet and it's only ok, especially considering the price.

An outstanding Holiday Inn. Quite contemporary, but very comfortable. A new build that is extremely well run, the manager has a strong presence, and is very proactive, ensuring that the staff work as ateam.
The food is excellent, especially the lounge menu and the staff are all very friendly.

Room Tip: i recommend a high floor to enjoy the great views.

Chad and Andrea will welcome you well. The hotel is in a great location if you don't want to be right in the middle of Manchester. The hotel is clean, smart and the views are great especially at night.

Have stayed there a few times on business, it is quite pleasant.
New facilities, rooms are nice and well equipped.
Only issue is that you cannot open the windows - so it can get very stuffy in the rooms.
Also on most floors there is an issue with water pressure so at certain times the shower is very weak.

Restaurant is nice.
