“Great choice for a Manchester United Weekend”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Stayed at the Copthorne Hotel for a weekend sleep over prior to a matchday at Old Trafford. The choice of hotel for this purpose was excellent since the hotel has great parking facilities and is within walking distance from the stadium. The staff at the reception are pleasant. The furniture in the room however is need of refurbishing as it has an old look. The breakfast was great and the hotel was clean and well maintained.

Stayed with my two kids on a package to watch Utd v Liverpool game. Location excellent for anyone over for a game. Any dealings we had with reception they were very helpful & nothing was a problem. Service at bar was also good. Never ate in the evening as went out for meal just down the road so can't comment. Breakfast had wide choice & something for everyone & again greeted well before being taken to our table with waitress taking time out to chat to kids & I, really friendly. Tbh the rooms were spotless with iron plenty of storage & mini bar ( bit pricey) bathroom was again spotless with plenty of clean towels. Beds very comfy . All in all I would have no hesitation staying here again whilst attending the football.

Stayed at the hotel on a Saturday night and ha a last minute deal so price wasn't too bad. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist which was a good start. The room was located on the first floor and have to say was very dated. Old style tv with a massive back, bathroom had very dated tyles on the wall and the drains seemed slightly blocked so when I was showering it was as if the plug was in, the wooden furnishings were in desperate need of replacing as were scratched. He hotel has the potential of being 5* however at the current state it is more like 3* at a push. For the price and location I would stay here again, it was clean, cheap and staff were friendly.

Stayed here last minute on a Saturday night with my partner as we wanted a night out in Manchester. Paid £38 for the night in a double room. Rooms an corridors are old fashioned, huge tvs, borders on the walls and old carpets! The hotel may have been a four star in the nineties but not now, it's in need of a good renovation and updating! Would stay again for the same price but would not be happy if I had paid more!

We used this Hotel when going to watch a game at Old Trafford. The Hotel is very conveiniant for the ground and just across the road the Tram stop with frequent trams to Salford and the city centre. The Hotel and rooms are looking tired but don't let that put you off. The rooms are good and well equipped. the Breakfast offers a wide selection and was very tasty. will use this Hotel again when going to a game as it offers excellent value.

I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews about the Copthorne being dated. I needn't have worried though it was fab!
After being welcomed by the lovely Stacey on reception, we were given a quay side room which was warm, clean and had everything you could want on a short stay. Ok the films on tv and fridge bar were a bit pricey but nothing you wouldn't expect at other hotels. We tried the room service and ordered the Beer battered haddock and the burger. It was all severed up within 30 minutes and was very tasty and hot.Compliments to the chef!
Breakfast in the morning was equally as good and we were well looked after by Colin.
Copthorne employers give these guys a rise they all deserve it !

Room Tip: Ask for a quay side room!

We stayed here on 23rd November after going to the football match at the Theatre of Dreams where we watched Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 3-1. Great time at the Red Cafe and then back to check in at the hotel to find they had only reserved one of the two twin rooms we had booked in advance. There were no rooms available on the same floorand eventually the rest of our party was accommodated two floors apart.

Our room on the first floor was comfortable, clean and adequate with a very old tv. This looked out over the bridge and road and didn't have the lovely view of the canal and Quays that we'd enjoyed on a previous visit.

Breakfast was not inclusive in the already expensive room rate, but £11 extra, so we went off into Manchester for a full English with cuppa for £5 each.

Manchester is a wonderful City with lots of great places to stay and I would not consider the Copthorne unless I wanted to be within walking distance from Old Trafford; with this in mind and, looking at the direct competition, the Copthorne then probably becomes a fair option.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the Quays!
