Had the misfortune of staying here for 4 nights while working in the area and definitely will not be returning. Here's my review... Location - Great for Sainsburys if you want to do your weekly shop but being on the side of a busy road it is very noisy and there isn't much in the area. 20-25 minute walk into the city centre so not too bad. Check in - Staff were friendly and check in was smooth enough. No issues there. Room - This is where everything went wrong. At first I thought we had accidentally checked into a local prison. The room was tiny and didn't smell great, I'm pretty sure that the 'No Smoking' rule isn't enforced in any way, shape or form. Also from the smells in the corridor it wasn't just Cigarettes that were being smoked! The beds have to be the most uncomfortable I have ever slept on, the mattresses couldn't have cost more than 7 or 8 pounds each when they were new in 1987 and the bedding must have come from the Sainsbury's basics range (Sorry Sainsbury's that might be a little unkind to you!). The pillows were actually ok, Possibly the best part of the room. Other basic necessities are provided i.e a kettle, some cups and a bit or Tea, Coffee and milk. A Small wardrobe, A radiator that might have worked at one time and a TV. The walls are tastefully decorated in 'Hint of Nicotine wood chip' which went nicely with the brown carpet. The bathroom - Again a very small space with a bath that even Warwick Davis wouldn't be able to relax in. The shower wasn't too bad with plenty of hot water but I found it hard to get clean with the shower curtain attacking me like an over friendly ghost! Only 2 small towels provided and no hand towels. All in all not the best hotel I have stayed in!

Booked this hotel for 1 night for myself and 2 friends.The room was very basic,smelly and dated!Very noisy ALL night with doors banging and shouting!!Anyone could just wander in entrance,felt quite unsafe as room right near main door!159 quid for a room that looked like someone had died in it!will not be returning!

Stayed here with my two boys and thank god it was only one night. We arrived late otherwise would of looked for else where and first room smelt of something bad, changed no problem but not much better just less the smell. Corridors smelt of someone smoking not to good a things, room very basic, Widow not shutting properly. Moved one of the beds and Big stains on the floor, Cups all stained to. Couldn't wait to leave.

I stayed here whilst in Manchester this month to watch a football match. I understand that because football is on, prices will go up, however I paid £159 for what can only be described as dated and tired, hostel style accommodation. I see now that it is rated 2 star, but my fault I didn’t check this before booking. Saying that, the staff were genuinely fantastic and helpful, and I did get a good nights sleep! ( my room wasn’t facing the road). Free parking was included. About a 35 minute walk to Old Trafford.

Reading some of the reviews on here and looking at traveller photos I was a little apprehensive. I stayed here over a decade ago and it was a clean, basic, safe place to stay. That's still true but it is showing its age now. To be fair everything works but evidence of patching repair work to the walls is there to see in places. Furniture is modern and in excellent condition and the bed was comfy. Rooms are warm and clean especially where it matters with clean stain free carpets. Bathrooms are basic but again clean with hot powerful showers with a very clean showerhead - the half-size continental size baths are not really meant for bathing. Tea/coffee making facilities include the nice touch of disposable cups alongside mugs so you can make a cuppa and have it in the hoof in the morning. Guy on reception on arrival was very friendly and helpful. Yes it is in a separate block but it’s literally a handful of steps away from the rooms. Bar and restaurant are of a very high standard of decor, reasonably priced and the food was very good (proper open kitchen and no sound of microwaves pinging!). Service got a bit patchy at the bar later in the evening though. Parking feels secure and no shortage of spaces. It is by a busy road but I didn't find road noise a problem. I got a good night’s sleep, but the walls are paper thin and it really is dependent on having considerate guests next door. Not sure I'd stay here on a Fri/Sat night as I imagine it would be popular with clubbers/revellers. All in all I'm really not sure what some people expect for the price (£39 per night for me). For a clean, warm, functioning comfortable room walkable to the city centre with free parking it's excellent value for money. Great for an overnighter for business.

My partner and I had booked last minute to have a night to ourselves, the staff were lovely, the rooms are quite basic but for the price paid I wasn’t expecting anything fancy. We had also booked breakfast and were very happy there were vegetarian options and soy milk on offer which we have struggled to find at other budget hotels. We were provided with a code to use the WiFi upon request and were able to take drinks from the bar back to our room. The only negative we found was that due to the minus temperatures we are currently experiencing the room was rather cold, there was only a tiny radiator to heat the whole room and no heating at all in the bathroom which made bathroom trips quite uncomfortable. Overall we were satisfied with our stay.

Tired rooms, average service, poor food and kept awake by idiots in the next room even after asking reception to sort this out. 1st and last time will stay here!!! Avoid like the plague, probably better hotels out there for the same or less money

Excellent service nice clean and spacious room and the food in the restaurant was amazing enjoyed and will return here again in the future staff are very polite and are well manned everything is local and close by so is easily way round

I’ve paid less money and had better facilities. Felt like I was in a backpackers hostel. Very basic and for the first time I had to pay to use wi-fi! No room service and restaurant is in a separate building. On a positive note, the food was excellent and they bagged it up for me to eat in my room. I’ll stick to premier inn next time!

We had a room on the third floor and while looking a bit dated, for what we paid it wasn't bad at all. The beds were clean and comfortable, the tv was modern and bathroom large and clean (small bath). We also had free parking which is a bonus and free Wifi for booking directly. The only issue I had was being positioned near the busy main road and the opposite restaurant, the noise was pretty bad. The windows are so thin it didn't cancel it much (if at all) and I had a lot of trouble sleeping. A shame really, you may have more luck depending where your room is!
