4.0 out of 5.0

Very nice clean and modern hotel which is situated in a good location in Media City with plenty of places to go out and eat very close by. I didn't eat at the hotel but I did have breakfast there which was your average breakfast, better than some I have had at other places. The room was comfortable and clean, a little warm for my liking and if the air conditioning is on, then the noise keeps you awake. The only other point I picked up on was that whilst the bathroom looked new and had a nice big shower over the bath, the shower was very under powered and you have to stand very close to the wall to get wet. It wasn't just my room that experienced this as a colleague had the same problems in his room which was on a different floor.

We stayed here for one night while attending the Billy Joel concert at Old Trafford. We had some problems finding the hotel at first and passed it but when we turned round the sign from the other direction was obvious. We arrived at 1.00 and were surprised that we were able to check-in then. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room on the 11 floor overlooked the canal and buildings being built. It had everything we needed and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is well located for BBC tours, restaurants, shopping at the outlet centre and Old Trafford. It only took us 10 minutes to walk to Old Trafford. The hotel was reasonably priced and the multi storey parking near by was convenient and only £10 instead of £24.

Recently had the misfortune to attend this hotel one evening last week. The attitude from the staff was quite frankly disgusting. I have visited and travelled all over the world and can quite frankly say the staff were the worst I have ever encountered.

We came to Manchester for the Billy Joel concert at Old Trafford and the hotel was ideally located for easy parking £10 if hotel stamps it (just puts a hole in triangle), lots of nearby eateries, BBC studios tours etc. Could not give 5 stars as breakfast was poor (no glasses for juice, lots of empty containers of food in buffet) and our server did not say we could order from a menu. Sadly the bed was a bit saggy meaning we rolled together!! But overall, would we stay here again. Absolutely.

Stayed at the hotel for one night whilst attending Old Trafford for a concert. Only 10-15 minutes from the ground & so close to Media City tram stop. The check in staff were very pleasant and helpful. We had a twin room on the 15th floor and were very happy with our facilities.

Stayed here about 3 years ago and decided to use this hotel again as we were going to Old Trafford for the Socceraid game. What a fantastic hotel to stay in. It's convenient for the Metrolink to get into city centre, shopping outlet mall a 10 minute walk away and plenty of places in walking distance to eat and drink. The room was a good size, clean and comfortable. Relaxing bar area to sit and have a quiet drink. Breakfast was plenty, hot and tasty. Everything you need for a good few days away! Lastly, all the staff were wonderful. A big thank you to Amy(don't know her surname!)who stood out from the rest. Helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. She was brilliant! Will definitely be going back again!

I repeatdly stay at this hotel whilst working and it is fine for somewhere to lay your head, but nothing special. The rooms have great views and everything you need for a nights stay - iron, hairdryer, desk and breakfast. However I would not chose to stay here as a treat or on a holiday as I think the hotel does not pay great enough attention to small things - room service is slow, marks on the bedding, smokers in other rooms. Nothing has ever caused me to complain and I would definately have no issues staying for a night or two for work - just no luxuries or the feeling of 'special' at this hotel.

Great hotel and fantastic location.I would recommend anyone visiting Manchester to stay here.A very up and coming area for business and for family.Lots of restraints near by and a tram which gets you to the city if needed.

We decided to stay here for a birthday celebration and a coronation street tour, the rooms are massive clean and has excellent views. The staff take care of you as soon as you step in the from doors right up until you are checking out. Well done guys ! Will definitely be booking here again soon.

Stayed a night on business. Not been for a few months as prices can fluctuate between reasonable and outside my company’s expenses limit, but large comfortable room as always. Handy for Media City, BBC etc. Lots of bra and places to eat nearby if you don’t want to eat in the hotel. Only gripe is that once again the bathroom lighting is too dark to shave by.
