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

Location or quality

Perfect location. Needs a complete renovation. Good price for its location however the room walls were damp and covered in mould. The entire room smelled damp and unfortunatly brought down the standard of our trip.

Great location

This hotel is great for the location. What you lose in supuberb cleanliness you make up for being right in the heart of the city. It had a shower, free wi-fi, two beds...all you need for a quick rest to go back out in the city. They provided fresh clean towels everyday. The only thing it lacked would be found with spots on the carpet and comforters, sheets not changed while we were there or the view. Wish it had air conditioning or a fan. While it is not Jury's Inn, it is a very friendly hotel, excellent and helpful staff and, again, a perfect location.

Manchester Arndale is right down the street with a food centre, excellent shopping, things to do and more. Ride the ferris wheel--seing the city is a wonderful experience.

Decent lodging at reasonable price

This was a one-night stop-over in Manchester for business in the Manchester Piccadilly area. Hotel is walking distance from Piccadilly station. I had a room on the fourth floor towards the rear, so it was very quiet. The specific room was a single room, but spacious (compared to London hotel rooms anyway) with wireless internet connection included in the price. Breakfast was not included in the pricing scheme that I had selected, but reasonably priced. Granted that the hotel is not brand-new, everything in the hotel is dated. That is reflected in the pricing.

Bang on

After reading few negative stories, was slightly concerned! I was pleasantly surprised with everything in fairness. Arrived at 800 in morning and had no problem getting early check in. The room itself was basic but perfect. Bathroom wasnt great but it done the job. Definetly using here again

Gardens Manchester

I was really very pleasantly surprised by the Gardens Hotel. Very centrally placed in the city and very cheap - I was ready for 'rough'! the experience was good from the first friendly but very professional greeting at reception through to fast check out. Room was comfortable, clean. well equipped and quiet - despite being att he front of the hotel facing a major city junction. Well done Gardens Team!
