            Individual guest reviews

            • Couple
              3.8

              very disappointing. tried to make a complaint on web - no joy

            • Couple
              4.6

              Liked its location

              Pretty much everything. I paid £89 for one night, and i should have booked a travel lodge instead. The whole corridor and room smelt of smoke, everything was dated and you just felt dirty after spending the night there. Would never stay here again, disgusting.

            • Couple
              8.2

              location of the hotel was perfect for a short city break, easy access to train station and city centre. value for money through Booked.net

              I thought the room was quite dated and in need of refurbishment, however it was clean. I would not have been happy to pay the hotel's own double room rate of £170 per night as I didn't think the room was worth that. However, for £89 per night which is what we paid via Booked.net, I thought was acceptable.

            • Single
              7.8

              The hotel was clean and staff were friendly when I arrived. The location was excellent, only a 5 minute walk from the train station, shops and bars all very close, so need to pay for taxis. Check out of 12 noon was good, compared to some hotels that check out at 11am. Good safety as we had to show room keys when arriving back late at night, meaning only guests can enter hotel; travelling as a woman on her own this was reassuring.

              room was a bit small, as I was only there for 1 night this was not an issue but would be a bit small for a longer stay. decor was acceptable if a bit dated.

            • Couple
              6.2

              Location is very good.

              The advertise a pool, but when you get there they call it a plunge pool. We had a corner room with barely any space in it. Nice TV, but you could not hook anything like USB or gaming console to it, they had the programs taken off the TV. Misled on parking prices

            • Family with children
              5.4

              was very close to shopping and the train station

              room to dark, hole in the wall next to window,to expensive for what you got. hotel room looking tired needs bringing up to date

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Within excellent proximity of the city centre and excellent amneties, comfortable bar open 24 hours.

              it would of been much appreciated to have more, milk, coffee, biscuits in the room, but overall well worth a visit.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Very good location

              Room wasn't great, pool and gym a throw back to the 80's !

            • Family with children

              Locality

              Stayed manchester several times,first and last time thistle. Its a dump. Would never dream of recommending this hotel to anyone

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Hotel is very central, with access to buses,and trams very near. Less than 10 minutes walk to train station.

            • Single
              9.2

              The location both to the venue I was attending and travel links to the airport. The hotel was pleasant and welcoming. The food (breakfast) was good. All in all good value.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              Got an excellent rate for an upmarket hotel. Very good value for money. Ideal location for everything in the city.

              Room slightly on the small side.

            • Single
              10.0

              Being upgraded to a suite. Central location

              Would have preferred greater choice of fruits/continental breakfast options

            • Family with children
              10.0

              A great hotel in the heart of Manchester. Reception area was beautiful as were the bar and restaurant. The bedrooms were very small but very clean and comfortable, a small price to pay for being in the city centre.

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              Excellent location .. unlimited access to the leisure center and all its facilities ..

              Did not eat in the hotel as surrounding restaurants offered far better value .. however the Hotel menu did have a wide choice of dishes Our room was quite 'compact' would have liked a bit more space Rm 544 miss it if you can
