Great value for the money!

Excellent location near the Manchester airport. I would have rated higher if it was not that there was mold stain around the shower and one of the employee was rather cold and never cracked a smile....very young fellow but seemed a bit snobish. All the other staff was just fantastic and very attentive.

Why book in advance?

Arrived to check in at about 2a.m. after a very long day to be told that there were no rooms available (despite my luggage having been delivered to the hotel earlier in the day with a message that I would definitely be checking in but likely very late). I was offered a hotel in another location - not acceptable as I was part of a larger party staying at the hotel. Why bother making a reservation and paying for a room a month in advance? After much discussion with staff, a family room was offered - so there was a room after all, they just hadn't wanted me to have it. Not good service at that time in the morning - I just wanted to get to bed!!

Absolutely awful!

We left within 30 minutes of arriving. We asked for our money back, but the rude guy at reception said that was not possible. So, we decided we would rather loose the money than stay there and we left to find another hotel. This hotel was like stepping back into the 70's! The room was more like a prison cell. The list is endless of how bad it was. We were just so glad we left and stayed no longer than 1/2 hour after checking in. To discribe in one word; DUMP!

Needs work

The hotel is a nice place, but as soon as I got to my room there was nail polish or some other red liquid on the carpet and bedspread. I told the receptionist who said he would be straight up. He never arrived (I did note that there were a lot of people checking in though). I stayed there because I had an exam the next day, but couldn't concentrate and couldn't sleep well because of the incessant clunking of the heating/water boiler. Finally, the room hadn't been cleaned properly and there were cotton balls and rubbish on the floor. Now I know why the room was cheap.

Room had blood stained carpet. Complained immediately and moved to another room. This proved no better. Filthy bed cover and dirty top sheet.
