Gardens Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location near The Northern Quarter. The staff was helpful and very nice. I do not suggest this hotel is you are spoiled to central air especially traveling during the warmer months. overall satisfied.

The hotel is in a convenient location close to Piccadilly station...all parts of the hotels were as advertised, The hotel is an older building but my room had no maintenance issues. The price + location was a good value for the money spent

It's pretty old, not very clean (especially carpets). The best thing about this place is in the city center. The location is priceless and that's all it's got. It doesn't have parking lot and I paid 20 pounds for a garage.

Would no stay there again. Elevator smelled. It should be a 2** and not 3. Location is good. However, bikers and people hang outside the front that one has to pass to get in the building. The hotel needs an overhaul. They were painting the ground floor while I was there. DCC

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.

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.

Great location, free internet, cheap, small but clean roooms, noise can be a problem.

This hotel is great for the location. What you lose in supuberb cleanliness you make up for being right in the heart of the city. It had a shower, free wi-fi, two beds...all you need for a quick rest to go back out in the city. They provided fresh clean towels everyday. The only thing it lacked would be found with spots on the carpet and comforters, sheets not changed while we were there or the view. Wish it had air conditioning or a fan. While it is not Jury's Inn, it is a very friendly hotel, excellent and helpful staff and, again, a perfect location.

This was a one-night stop-over in Manchester for business in the Manchester Piccadilly area. Hotel is walking distance from Piccadilly station. I had a room on the fourth floor towards the rear, so it was very quiet. The specific room was a single room, but spacious (compared to London hotel rooms anyway) with wireless internet connection included in the price. Breakfast was not included in the pricing scheme that I had selected, but reasonably priced. Granted that the hotel is not brand-new, everything in the hotel is dated. That is reflected in the pricing.

Very good value and excellent location right in the heart of Manchester. Room was basic but clean, and the staff friendly and helpful. The free wireless Internet in all rooms is a big plus. Breakfast was very good, but make sure you ask how much the full English breakfast costs, as I thought it was included and didn't realize there was a separate charge for it until I checked out. The restaurant staff never mentioned the price, they simply ask you what you want when you sit down for breakfast.
