Average hotel, great location

The grand staircase at the entrance of this hotel gives the appearance that this hotel is going to be something special. However, once you enter the lift to go up to the accommodation floors the hotel becomes your average hotel. Whilst the corridors & hotel rooms are a little dated, the room was clean & the bed was comfortable. If you want to use this hotel as a base to explore Manchester it's perfect, if you are looking for a little more luxury try elsewhere.

cheap utilitarian overnight

Quiet, clean room, with all the facilities one would expect, polite staff, conveniently close to Picadilly Station. Aching after a long journey so loved the big bath-tub!

Great if you keep your eyes closed!

I booked two twin rooms for a girls weekend away. The cost was £104 per room. Check in was smooth but the rooms were a let down. We were in the middle of the hotel so the room had no window. Not good if you get claustrophobic. The air conditioning didn't work either but as we were out all evening and planned to get up early we didn't make a fuss. The room was quite tatty but the bed comfy enough. The bathroom had had a quick once over cleaning wise as the last guests hair was still there. The shower was awful, hot one minute cold the next. I did spend ten minutes trying to get it at the right temperature. I would not return which is a shame as it has been a lovely hotel at one time. Great location though.

Way too loud

Location excellent. Apart from this it is average. Dirty stains on carpet. And as for the noise coming from the nightclub downstairs. If you are on the first floor you may as well go down to the club and get drunk as you dont have any hope of getting any sleep whatsoever. Disappointing to say the least.

Not the best

Staff on arrival weren't very useful/helpful. We're given a smokers room when asked for non smoking then to change rooms due to smell and no window had to pay extra money, then moved to a room on the top floor with a tiny window that barely opened. The carpet had scorch marks all over it the remote for the 1980 tv didn't work, the shower leaked onto the carpet in the main room.

Not even justified by the price

The hotel is tired - something not exactly justified by the price, which (whilst cheap) really is expensive for what you actually get. Rooms smell of smoke, and are rather uncomfortable. Better of staying in a Premier Inn.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Check out the numerous bars in the Northern Quarter. Awesome place for food during the day (try Home Sweet Home, Takk or Teacup on Thomas Street), and bars at night - try Port Street Beer House, Shack or Hula Tiki Lounge.

sufficient

the woman at the reception was rude & had 0 people skills, I found her to be quite aggressive & wanted to complain about her on the spot ! my room was DECENT there was huge curtains but behind them was NO view as the windows were boarded up which was a let down, we were on the 5th floor & could hear people walking up & down for atleast an hour before me & my partner actually fell asleep ! BUT it was ideally located & was very convenient, it was a "does at it says " kind of hotel, nothing more & nothing less ! also the bar staff were rude ! also the shower is mounted on the wall & so water leaks from it & onto the floor which was annoying as the floor was constantly flooded & had to use the hotel towels to dry it & that wasn't even enough
