Ok, but nothing Special

Stayed here because it was local to my destination. Room was Ok. Wifi didn't work during the night rung reception several time to report the issue that didn't go away. Next morning finally logged on reception only find that I needed a network that was never given to me the previous night! The only plus was breakfast..

could do better

Our, had a poor shower or friends in the next room had a great shower. The morning of our 2nd night stay , was disappointing as no hot food was available, as"there was only a few rooms occupied". The staff was very friendly & later rang to refund our breakfast for that morning.

Odd Vibes

I couldn't quite feel any decent ambiance the hotel lacked atmosphere but the breakfast was OK. Maybe a choice of how you would like your eggs would be nice. Shower was modern but a bit tight fit, no hanging rails or hooks in the bathroom.

Weekend Break

We stayed at this hotel on 11th January for one night. Location wasn't the best as there wasn't any signs until you get right outside the hotel and not a lot to do in the town centre. Overall we'd happily go back and possibly stay longer.

GREAT ECONOMICAL ACCOMMODATION

Staff very helpful and welcoming. Room small but satisfactory. Good prices. Lovely breakfast. Great location for Manchester Airport, although a little too far from Manchester centre. My son, who was not staying at the hotel, joined me for breakfast and this was perhaps a little pricey at £10.50!

not what I booked for!!

I booked this as a romantic treat for my other half who had been away for a month. The same time as I booked it online, i called the hotel and asked for a quiet room (as previous reviews had said that they have lots of weddings/tribute nights on and it can get very noisy until the early hours). I was told that I would be given a quiet room...aswell as a refurbished superior room. On check in, there was an 18th birthday party on with 200 guests... told that the room I was in was away from the noise..but was a basic standard room..and it was fully booked so couldnt be changed. The room was very, very basic, the curtains didnt fit the window so light came through at both sides..the bed was squeeky and soft...and the toilet wouldnt flush. I called to reception and told them..they said they were very busy and somebody would be up in half an hour. an hour later, we couldnt relax and unwind as were still waiting. called again...told to wait further...this was annoying as we wanted a quiet night in with a bottle of wine...but were sat around waiting for somebody to come and fix the toilet. After another 20 minutes, we called again and asked to change rooms..told none were available so asked for a refund and we would leave...said it was non refundable. in the end my fella took the cistern apart and messed with the toilet till the flush started to work. so much for our romantic reunion night!! we were happy to check out in the morning and leave! at breakfast, i didnt want a full english so asked for the other options on the menu (croissants and selection of cheeses)...neither were available. So i asked for just toast. I got brought one piece. at this point I had passed caring and was happy to just go rather that wait around or another slice of lukewarm bread. Hotel is ok for somewhere to stay for a night...but keep away if for a romantic night together..unless you have low standards!!
