Not impressed

Would not recommend Sat, Jan 9, 2016
Dirty room when we arrived and had to be moved. New room duvet was ripped but sewed it up ourselves after previous hassle. Room was very warm and air con didn't appear to cool it down. Lots of room in our king size room and bathroom decent enough. View of rough sleepers camp site from bedroom not ideal. Breakfast average although sausages particularly nice. Staff mainly disinterested except for the night reception chap. He was extremely helpful in finding us a nice place to eat as the restaurant was full .

We stay in this hotel every time we are in Manchester. Hotel great. Ideal location, room excellent . Great choice for the breakfast. The only disappointing thing is that you now have to pay for the use of the spa.

Room for improvement

Would not recommend Mon, Dec 14, 2015
The members of staff were very friendly and attentive all the time. The dinner was superb. The room we stayed on the second floor looked tired and 'exhausted' the furnitures are old and in need of replacement. The decoration is basic and lacking in imagination. It was not worth the price charged for the room. The promotional video behind the reception staff showed more glitzy rooms. Our room did not correspond to what the advert implied. The room is overdue for an upgrade. The shower was good, though. The breakfast was good, the only criticism is that there was not enough on the fruits side. Fruit salad for example would be a good idea. The room experience was disappointing for the reasons stated.Did not use the spa or gym, so unable to comment on those facilities. Had I known the rooms were in such poor state, I would have taken my trade elsewhere.

Expected more

Would not recommend Mon, Dec 7, 2015
I stayed at the hotel for a short stopover visiting family. Trying to find the hotel car park was a real challenge for me. The hotel is on a busy main road next to the railway station. Having taken a route a few times, not able to find the entrance, I called the hotel. The car park was around the back of the hotel, reached by passing the station on the left hand side (just before passing the hotel). You need to go under a railway bridge and take a sharp right. The car park is on the left hand side just before you reach the main road (once you miss the turning, you are forced back onto the main road). The car park was expensive for the overnight stay - however, as it was raining, I had little choice. Check in was quick - however, with the twin room (and there were two of us) only one key card was provided - should we had wanted to leave at different times - one would not had been able to get in. Not what I'd expect from a 4 star hotel. The room itself was as expected - large and comfortable, but it didn't have some home comforts which I was expecting - a dressing gown and slippers - I was expecting a little more for my money. Due to the main road, traffic was heard throughout the night - this was not great. The hotel boasts a swimming pool and a sauna and spa - all costing more to attend. Gym was included in the price. Overall - I was expecting a little more for the price I paid - it was however, clean and comfortable.

Very helpful staff

Would recommend Tue, Sep 1, 2015
A nice hotel, very close to the train station and pleasant walk to the center of town. I thought the breakfast was very good. Climate control in the room was a bit of a problem. The staff, however did whatever they could to be helpful. For example, I needed an electrical adapter, and they found one to lend me. In the future I will surely remember that the UK uses a different voltage than Europe. (In fact, I found almost everyone in Manchester to be kind and helpful I couldn't have a map open for more than a minute before someone asked if I needed help.)
