“An OK hotel but very convenient”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

We had a good room although it was very warm in it even without the heating on & a window open. Check in and out was efficient. Breakfast was buffet style & plentiful with tea & coffee coming quickly. Parking was free.It was an OK place but very convenient to the Metro, Salford Quays area & the Lowry Centre - about a 10-15 minute walk.

the hotel is never a 4 star the furnishings are dated nothing nice about the room, curtains brown, bedding white duvet cover mini bar removed all wooden furniture scabbled and old bathroom clean but lups out of enamel bath, no information book in room not told when breakfast was. Got half price breakfast deal on internet would not have like to pay £18.99 for it, as it was very basic need a full makeover, but was good value for what i paid and it was clean

Room Tip: overlooking the canal

It was an okay sort of hotel. Comfortable. Nicely located for seeing Manchester. Pleasant staff. But in need of an update. One lift out of action for our stay. Not a big problem. But on the last morning, both lifts were out of action. So we had to bring our cases down the stairs. We were also disturbed throughout the night by comings and goings from other residents (but I have had that in better hotels). Didn't use the restaurant, but the bar was pleasant.
I would use it again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back have a nice view of the canel.

Unfortunately this hotel is very dated and you feel it the moment you go to the room.

The only good parts were the staff, checkin took aged due to large groups ahead of us, seemed to me that checking in on a match day might take a while as well!

Decor is old and the bathroom is awful for a big named hotel brand. Defiantly needing a refurb, bed is soft and you sink in... Slept ok. TV was working well either.

Food buffet breakfast was good but considering the price it seems a bit over priced.

There are better hotels in the area for a cheaper price. This is the first and last time I will stay here.

Appart from initially being given the key to an occupied room and finding a guy sat in his underwear drinking tea, this hotel was ideal. Rooms are clean and tidy, restaurant is good (little expensive) and its 2 minute walk from the metro (exchange quay) which takes you right into the city centre. Also a really good place to stay if you are going to The Warehouse Project, just a 5 min walk over the bridge!

When this hotel first opened i remember it being of an extremely high standard. It is looking a little tired now with the carpets in my room looking particularly threadbare. The hotel itself is well located and there are nice views of the Quay and Old Trafford which looks particularly impressive when lit up at night. The bar lounge area is cosy enough and the breakfast was ok though a bit slow in getting tea or coffee to you

Good location but very noisy, road traffic, kitchen noise, other guests coming and going til 5.30 in the morning!!
Staff pleasant and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable.
Free wifi would be good too.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking quay, quieter I believe.
