Let's start with the good news: the beds are good quality and decent size, the rooms are a fairly decent size and the staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, that's where it ends. The hotel advertises 'free hot breakfast', in which the 'hot' is scrambled eggs and sausages, both of extremely poor quality. Fruit was not ripe, the only bread available was toast, and the sliced fruit was so obviously canned, it had no flavour at all. The shower was a miserable trickle of water, half the time it was cold in the morning. For most of my stay, one of the two elevators was out of order, without any clear notice. The hotel is located in a quiet region of Salford Quays, which makes the middle-of-the-night garbage truck extremely audible, even with the window closed. The AC-unit had a life of its own, switching on at sub-tropical temperatures at random times.
In summary: for a single night, it is not a bad deal and everything you can expect from a budget hotel. For longer stays I would definitely not recommend it.
