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.

Great value

Convenient location just off of Picadilly square in the middle of town. Good wifi. Great price. Room had some stains and definitely had a "lived-in" look. But the bed was clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again.

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.

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!

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

OK, but was disappointed.

The staff was friendly and the location was perfect for someone like me who did not know Manchester and needed quick access to the train station. The room was below average. My shower water only ran cool to freezing cold, so I only used the bath tub, which did have hot water. The wireless internet did not work. Since I was only staying two nights I did not think it was worthwhile to mention these things. The walls are paper thin and it was kind of cold in the room. On the plus side, room service was quick and the food was not too bad. I think I would have had a better value for a hotel in the US for the price.
