For the purpose of the trip, it could have been better

Would no stay there again. Elevator smelled. It should be a 2** and not 3. Location is good. However, bikers and people hang outside the front that one has to pass to get in the building. The hotel needs an overhaul. They were painting the ground floor while I was there. DCC

For me as single is very good for money

I spent 4 days and it was so great , the location is in center of Manchester and everything is near. The train station is 4 minutes walking and all the historic buildings are 10 minutes walking distance. The wheel of manchester is just in front of the hotel. So as I said it's really good hotel for everybody. By the way, they have breakfast every day from 8 to 11.

Just what I needed

Easy to get to from Manchester airport, good central location, an older style hotel but clean and tidy with friendly staff. I would happily stay again.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Room is basic and does the job. Hotel is very centrally located and is perfect for a budget seeker. There's even carpet on the walls of the lift for those who love interior design :P

Weekend away

Great location in the middle of everything shops,bars easy to find . Only downside was the key card to our room it didn't work the whole time we were there wasn't so much of a problem until it came to go back to room after night out had to go to the reception twice and then having a very rude reception /porter very rudely tell us that there wS nothing wrong with the key card. On departure luggage can be left and collected later.overhall great hotel and won't be put off from staying there again.

Nice hotel Manchester downtown

Nice Hotel on the main square. We enjoyed a short stay (2 days). The staff is friendly, the rooms a bit small but still ok. The best advantage of this hotel is the good quality/price ratio and the location from which you can visit the whole city on foot. I would recommand it

Where I will stay in Manchester from now on

The location which is a short walk from Piccadilly Station, the free Manchester shuttle bus around town and shopping was fabulous. While the hotel otherwise does not seem to be in a great location that is like NYC's Times Square, the hotel patrons were very nice--many were middle class business travelers- and security there is tight. The breakfast was excellent as well.
