My rating is average but I like to say that it is between Poor and Average. The hotel has been good a few weeks before we came as I accidentally booked the room twice so had to get a refund for one booking. It’s not a 15 minutes walk from Deansgate if you use google, it was more like 20-25 minutes. The hotel looks good from the outside, but once we got to the room, it was really basic or near basic. The room was just an average size, probably half the size of a Premier Inn room. For a Italian Hotel company, the standard of the room was really poor, if all the other rooms are the same as the one we stayed in, the recommendation would be to have a major revamp/renovation for every room including the bathroom. Cleanliness off the room is again between poor and average, but I think it’s due to the place being outdated and not fully modernised. The room needed a lot of thins replacing. Would I recommend staying, well yes if your not too bothered and your staying for one night only, but if more then one night, then sorry it’s a no.

I think we was lucky reading reviews, we stopped in 319 top floor ( no lifts) in middle of night I guarantee you hear sirens! Not the hotel fault. You are next to shops like Sainsbury's, home bargains, Argos etc.we catched the number 33 bus cost £9 for 2 all day trip. Getting back to hotel went for a drink cost £9+ Stella and wkd, lemonade. Only 2 towels in room, and stopped at the back looking at River and building site., But didn't spend much time at the hotel. Bear in mind you are out the way from center and Trafford centre. I never went in but there is a casino outside hotel and kfc, MC D's Overall not bad and would stay again if price is right

I stayed here for work recently and it is easily the worst place that I have stayed in. The hotel rooms are in a different building from the reception and breakfast room and there was no lift so my colleague and I had to drag our large suitcases, laptop bags etc. to the relevant floor. When I got to my room, I was welcomed with the stench of urine which ended up coming from the shower curtain (?!) which was not pleasant. I appreciate that the housekeeper had obviously tried to air out the room a bit by keeping the window open but with November temperatures this meant that it was an ice box. The radiator's dial was all faded so I couldn't tell if it would be blasting heat or not, but it eventually heated up none the less. The shower pressure was hopeless and because I didn't want to be anywhere near the smelly shower curtain, the bathroom was soaking by the end and with a limited number of towels provided, it wasn't the easiest to clean up. For some reason the internet in my phone didn't work while I was at the hotel and the taxi driver confirmed that this was due to it being in quite a built up area apparently. WiFi was advertised as £8 for 24 hours or something, but it turned out that we had it included in our booking so that was a plus! The continental breakfast was good with lots of selection. My colleague recommended the cooked breakfast but I had one (uncooked) boiled egg which was disappointing. Despite our client suggesting that we "didn't step outside of the hotel" due to the surrounding area, we spent most of our time away from the hotel and in the centre of Manchester which was lovely! But turns out this hotel is in the middle of a building site and there was just constant construction sites all the way into the centre. Overall my trip was unpleasant and disappointing and when I am back in Manchester in March I will not be booking into this hotel.

After reading the reviews I was seriously concerned about our 1 night stay here. We’d emailed the property to see if we could have an early check in around 12.30 as we were going to a they’re matinee. They contacted us straight away & said if they weren’t too busy, they would do what they could. We arrived, spoke to a pleasant girl on reception & told we could check in! Fortunately, our room overlooked the car park & not the main road so we didn’t suffer traffic noise. Upon entering the room (I was frightened to look)! A bathroom on the left, spotlessly clean, which led on to the bedroom. The great thing was that there was a door so you could close that separating the hall & bathroom from the bedroom avoiding any noise from the corridor. Comfy bed & pillows. Cheap rooms so we didn’t expect luxury. It was clean & basic & what we would expect for the money we paid. Greeted in the morning by one of the housekeepers who asked if our room was ok! I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Room double but very small could not walk round bed although very comfortable. Very noisy traffic and other guests, rough element staff on desk we could not really understand had ask him to repeat himself but he was pleasant. No floor towel on floor in bathroom only one hand towel with two bath towels no plastic mouth wash cups in bathroom. room was clean only good thing was free parking. Well over priced.

I needed a stop over as I was attending an event in the city . Never intended to spend any time in the room / hotel as the event was from 6pm to 1am. The room price was cheap at £42 and provided everything I needed. Free parking was available and essential as I know the car park prices in the city are expensive . The location is easy to get too and the check in very simple & efficient. It's not luxury , could do with a bit of TLC but for the price it was a bed for the night and ticked all my requirements .

I don't even know where to start writing as really don't stay here. Not only is it really outdated but it is dirty! There was mould around our windows, the bathroom tiles needed cleaning as did the shower curtain!!! (See pictures)... The walls were so thin that you could hear the people in the next room having sex!!! The worst bit however, was that we booked for 2 adults and 2 children (a normal family!) and they don't have family rooms and thought it was a good idea to put us on 2 separate floors!!!! Really and seriously don't bother staying here!!!!

Stayed here for two nights and although a low rated hotel I'd expect so much better from a large hotel chain! Bathrooms and bedrooms battered and worn out with horrendous road noise! Why you wouldn't install better sound insulating windows on a building close to a main road is unbelievable! The amount of police/ambulance sirens and general road noise going past on both nights made for very little sleep! Would have been better off checking into strangeways...which is where I thought I'd arrived originally walking up the filthy looking stairs to my room! My first and last campanile visit!

Used this as a stopover in a Friday night. For the price you pay there isn’t much to complain about. The rooms are basic, nothing more so don’t expect an iron or other amenities. Positives are location , 5 minute drive to the city centre, about 15 minutes to the Trafford Centre. The hotel also sits parallel to a retail shopping centre so you have options such as Sainsbury’s superstore, boots, Argos, JD gym and few clothing stores. There is also a Macdonalds across the main road. Negatives is the quality of your stay, weekends tend to attract a somewhat noisy young crowd so expect a sleepless night if you end up near them. There is no security at the hotel so would not classify it as the safest around. The area had had extensive regeneration program but would not take a walk there. Unless you have a very limited budget it is best to the elsewhere first.

Fairly basic motel but incredibly noisy! I was surprised that the staff didn't intervene given the high level of noise going through the night to at least 4 am. Expensive breakfast but McDonalds is close by. Not recommended.
