The Castlefield Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I have stayed several times on business and have been very satisfied with all aspects of the hotel. You get a smile when you check in, the rooms have always been spotless. You also get a greeting and a friendly smile every time you walk past reception or bump into any of the staff. This is one of the few hotels around in central Manchester with a proper swimming pool and a full sports facility. I have even played truant from work and spent time in the Museum of Science and Industry opposite the hotel.

Marc & Saadat was very helpful tonight and was lovely and help us throughly through the night. And the chef David Dore was a great help with directing us around Manchester for a good night out great stay would recommend!!

Paid a visit to the hotel and was quite disappointed. Reception is basic, unmanned and not what I was expecting. The facilities in the bar are basic and unflattering. The car park is expensive and a hassle to get in and out. The toilets look tired and is in need of a refurbish. Better bars and hotels to spend my time.

Mario is by far the most customer centric person I have met. I didn't stay at the hotel but I was lost in Manchester and my phone had died and was cold and needed help. I walked up to the front desk and was warmly greeted by Mario who went above and beyond the call of duty to help me out. I will never forget how kind and thoughtful and helpful he was. He will go far in life!! Thanks Mario! I really appreciate your kindness xxx

have been here recently initially we have booked into the pub nearby but they had a flood and could not put us up. We were only a few yards down the road in arrival our room Was not ready that was just around 2pm not great considering we have the inconvenience of having to stay at a nearby hotel we were also told that breakfast was 20 for two or 24 on the morning if we didn't book the breakfast at our initial hotel was in 14 for two but no one on reception was really able to make a decision if we have it at the 14 price.. Room clean and nearby access to trAins shops snd bars clean and friendly

We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of December. We'd gone as a group of 8 and stayed 1 night because we were going to a gig at the Arena, but 4 of us decided a few weeks before to book an extra night. So glad we did. The hotel is lovely. Situated near Deansgate. It's a bit of trek if you come on the train but we drove. It has it's own parking. £10 per day. If you do use the parking, the main reception is up the stairs, not the YMCA entrance as you come out of the car park. Check in was quick and easy. Our room was clean, spacious and had a view of the amphi-theatre. Don't be fooled by the room numbers in sequence. My fiancee & I and my best friend & his fiancee had what we thought were neighbouring rooms, but we was in 1 wing and they were in an other. Nevertheless, still enjoyed the stay. There's plenty to do in the area. The industrial museum is just 5 minutes up the road and as I said above, Deansgate is at the end of the road with a nice stroll into town with plenty of bars and restaurants on the way. If you need a taxi to take you into town just ask reception and they will order you one without a problem. The driver will come and get you because the main entrance is not on the main road. Overall, we all enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend this hotel again.

Hotel cant really moan about it it's basic clean and tidy Only thing it's a small bit out from the city and breakfast spread wasn't much but other than that can't really go wrong simple basic hotel 4 mark rating just because of location nothing around you and breakfast

I was there in January for a computer club meeting from Friday till Sunday. We had two conference rooms and they were quite suitable. Nothing to complain about those rooms, except there was a misunderstanding about our own snacks and a kettle. Anyway, that got sorted out but if you want to rent the conference rooms and use your own snacks and drinks, please make clear what terms and conditions they have, just to prevent misunderstandings. My room mate and I arrived at Friday about two o'clock in the afternoon. As the room was cleaned we could directly move in to it. The room was on the first floor. It was clean and neat. It looked like it was painted just a while ago. It was also quite warm, but I like that :-) The shower and toilet were also as you might expect from a hotel. Nothing wrong with that. The rooms are noisy. During the second night I woke up in the middle of the night due to the noise of some drunk idiots in the adjescent room :-( The breakfast is good. You can choose (or combine) a full English breakfast and several kinds of bread. As a visitor from the Netherlands I really enjoyed the Engish breakfast. Also the meals in the evening are good. There is not much choice but it tastes well. Maybe a bit expensive compared to restaurants in the neighbourhood. Although the main doors are double, they went open and closed at the same time, it was cold in the lobby, especially right in front of the doors. Please fix that. As a hotel visitor you can use the leisure fascilities of the Youth's Club next door. You just have to ask for an entrance code at the reception and you can use the fitness, sauna and swimming pool. Those are clean as well. It's a pity that you have to wear swim waer in the sauna and steam cabin. It's so much nicer to wear nothing in a sauna :-) But I can understand that you can't let people walk naked at a public swimming pool. The showers at the leasure fascilities are also nice and clean. People write negative reviews here about the parking. They shouldn't. It is published on the website that you have to pay for parking so you know it in advance. We payed £20,00 for parking from Friday evening till Sunday afternoon. That is a reasonable price IMHO. If I ever visit another meeting in this hotel, I will surely book my room here again.

Stayed here for an evening, received a very warm welcome from reception staff, Excellent hotel, room had a lovely view of the canal out of the window, great staff, thank you for an enjoyable stay, clean, and central location.

I had a fabulous experience at this hotel from start to finish. The staff were courteous, friendly and very helpful. The manager was actively speaking with guests to make sure everything was ok with their stay. The check in experience was quick, easy and informative on check out Emily made sure we had enjoyed our stay. The rooms are large with everything you would expect, clean and modern. The hotel is located in a great location very close to everything in Manchester city centre. The transport links are also good with Deansgate Train and Tram station just a 5 minute walk. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for somewhere nice to stay in the city.
