A 10 minute walk from the hotel to Deansgate is probably the best thing to say about the hotel! The rooms are basic but clean. A little curly round the edges but somewhere to lay your head. You get what you pay for I suppose. The staff were friendly and welcoming but the walls are thin and there was quite a lot of noise from the corridor ( I was on the ground floor near reception. I didn't eat there as there is so much choice in the centre not far away. On the whole, there is nothing particularly wrong with the hotel but it is a real 'no frills' establishment

I stayed at this hotel for two nights last week. The staff were friendly and the room was more than adequate for my needs. There was a nice TV with lots of channels that I didn't have the time to watch but it was nice having the choice. Good wardrobe space, tea and coffee, kettle, hairdryer (which I didn't use due to being follically challenged) I noticed pretty soon that the bed didn't have the best mattress, but I slept well on it so can't really complain. As someone else mentioned in their review, the bathroom was quite small but I found it quite amusing that they got everything into such a small space (luckily I'm also small built) . As my room faced the front of the building, I was concerned about outside noise but there were no distracting noises in the morning or evening to disrupt my peaceful stay there. The only thing I didn't like was having to stand behind an iron gate to buzz in when I returned in the evenings, telling the guy on the other end my name and room number before being allowed through. But at least it's good to know that any stranger off the street can't just walk in at night I suppose. Checking out was simple, pleasant and they even kept my bag safely stored, at no extra cost! unlike other hotels. Oh, and the free wi-fi during my time there was greatly appreciated.

Great hotel if you're visiting the arena, friendly check in and the room was adaquite for our needs, Room clean and the bar was open late which is also a plus haha. cant really complain considering the price paid.

Stayed here for 3 nights & had a very pleasant stay. The hotel is very close to Manchester Arena, the Arndale shopping centre & the city centre. Free parking provided site at the hotel & breakfast can be included in your room package or bought on the day. We didn't go for the breakfast as £8.99 seemed a little expensive & there are plenty of nice places to eat in the city centre which is only a 10 minute walk. The room was small however wasn't a problem but the walls are a little thin & other guests can be a little loud opening & closing doors etc. Very enjoyable stay & would be happy to stay again.

Average rating but for the price & proximity & free parking would be difficult to find better value. A number of issues but as long as you don't expect too much this is ideal for an overnighter or a weekend to city. Staff are good.The breakfast is not included we did pay for the English breakfast £8.95 it was sufficient to set you up for the day but quality was lacking. Continental did seem a bit lacking & apart from the pastries quality again seemed a bit of an issue. The rooms are compact dated & could do with better maintenance but importantly clean. Ask for a room away from the road but this does not dampen the interior noise. I think the walls may be rather thin. We were on ground floor and people talking at normal volume sounded like they were in the room with you! Luckily this was not a frequent occurrence so if you do stay wait till your in your room to chat :o) Could be a gem with investment.

Considering the low price of the rooms, this is a decent location in walking distance (or a cheap taxi ride) from the centre of the city and lots of popular locations just outside of the centre such as the Manchester Arena. It's got all the amenities, tidy bar/restaurant, decent sized car park, tea/coffee facilities in the room. Breakfast wasn't included in my room, and I felt was a bit over priced but there's lots of places in the city for a reasonably priced breakfast, so if you can wait to eat i'd recommend waiting. The staff were really good, very chatty and had lots of recommendations of places to go in Manchester (most of which worked out well). The cleaners were discrete and managed to clean the room without being noticed. On the subject of the room, it was clean and tidy, but very cramped. The TV was about the size of an iPad, the bed was about shoulder width and the bathroom wasn't much bigger. There were no locks on the bathroom door so I had to be careful not to burst into the room while trying to towel off...if I was going to stay for any more than 2 nights, i'd rather spend the extra money for a bit more comfort. Free WiFi is a big plus point.

Due to very busy Manchester over Bank Holiday weekend we almost had to book this hotel and at £164 for room only for the night it was overly expensive (considering it's normal price). However, nothing really to complain about. The hotel is what it is, basic accommodation but clean and tidy with all the facilities you would require from a double room, everything worked. Free on-site car parking is definitely a bonus and ten minutes straight walk down to Deansgate makes this a good location. Did not have breakfast there nor used the bar facilities so cannot comment on those. Having been doubtful initially, we would stay here again when next in Manchester.

WE chose this hotel because it was perfectly located for our visits to Manchester House restaurant and The Arena. Sadly, that's the best thing I can say about this hotel. The service was really nice and friendly though in all fairness. We got rooms facing the street and there was a construction site right across the road which was really noisy as was the traffic. The breakfast was really quite rubbish sadly as well. Good parking though.

Stayed one night room only and felt at £112 was over priced. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Small but comfortable bar area. Very small room with small double bed. Very old fashioned with discoloured painted wallpaper and paintwork that was nicotine stained. Room smelt of smoking and tv didn't work. Black mould in bathroom. Overall good location for city centre but way overpriced. Desperately needs refurbishment

Stayed a night as we were going to an event at the arena which is around 10-15 mins walk. There was plenty of free car parking outside the hotel, the staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was clean and the bathroom was spotless with lots of clean towels. The room had a TV and a hairdryer and lots of hanging space for clothes. We went downstairs for some food before going to the arena. The food was delicious and quickly served - we were both very happy with our meals.
