Yeah, good cheap accomm. Exactly what it said on the tin and what you'd expect for the price. For what I paid I am more than satisfied. Really handy location and if you're going by train it couldn't be more convenient. Cool staff. Clean room. Hot showers. Gruntled!

Wanted something reasonably priced and very central to the train station as we were arriving late at night and leaving for another train at checkout time. Arrived at 10.20pm reception polite and helpful. Room ideal for a quick one night stay, tea and coffe in the room very welcome after a long day travelling. Room very clean and everything we needed. Lovely hot invigorating shower in the morning. Didn't book breakfast. Would stay again no problem.

After reading few negative stories, was slightly concerned! I was pleasantly surprised with everything in fairness. Arrived at 800 in morning and had no problem getting early check in. The room itself was basic but perfect. Bathroom wasnt great but it done the job. Definetly using here again

There was no hot water when I arrived and this wasn't fixed until 9am the next day. The bath was filthy and the cold tap didn't work. The noise from the street (drunken ramblings from the local crazies) drifted up into the rooms. The only positive was that the hotel was conveniently located near the train station and Piccadily Square. But it was definitely overpriced.

I booked a single room - the room was very large with three single beds it was the end of November and through my 4 nights stay the radiator in the room would not work - I'm a heating engineer by trade so I know when a heating system is not turned on and this heating system was off - I phoned reception to explain the room was very cold - about an hour later they delivered a very small electric radiator to my room which was not really powerful enough for a room of this size so I had to keep my clothes on all the time I was in the room and had to get into bed as soon as possible. The room amenities where well worn and needed some maintenance updates and there was the stench of smoke in the room some one must have been smoking in the room on a regular basis - the only thing I would praise about the room was the view of the main street Xmas lights as this room was on the front of the hotel (to be continued)

The price was a little bit to expensive for the room we had. We couldn't close the window correctly and there's a draught all the time. But the location was perfect: 10 minutes from the station, 5 from the center.

The hotel is in a good location in central Manchester, and provided a bed for the night. The breakfast was reasonable. But the hotel is tired, shabby and not very clean. Just looking at the state of the lift was not a good introduction. The room was smelly - in spite of opening the window, which was not easy, the smell remained. I think it might have something to do with the carpet. The whole place needs a thorough 'deep clean', redecoration and renovation.

Basic as in there are the things you need for a short stay and the cleaning standard is quite good.

We understand why this hotel has both good and very bad reviews. Its good location and lowish price makes it popular for those visiting Manchester on a limited budget. On arrival, the crowded reception area (we were early and people were waiting for rooms) made it feel like a hostel rather than a hotel. The staff were efficient and helpful and the room well equipped and of good size. The decor was faded and the rooms could do with a complete refit. Decoration of the public areas was being done during our stay. For a base to visit central Manchester it is fine - if you want hotel luxury go somewhere else. We have stayed in worse (Travelodge, Deansgate) and usually stay at Holiday Inn, Salford Quays and use the tram to travel in and out of the city but would be prepared to stay at the Gardens again. It is in a super location with the entrance on Picadilly Gardens.

Excellent location. 5 mins from train station and very central. Decor slightly dated but the room was large, clean, comfortable and everything worked as it should. Could not really expect more for the price paid.

Hotel wouldn't be to bad if they knew how to clean, towels provided smelt, so i went out and brought my own and no maid to tidy room afer the first night. The location is a 1 minute walk from piccadily station is very handy but the hotel itself has very low standards.

good quality hotel room had all facilities you needed. the only thing that the hotel could improve on would be airconditioning in room or a fan as the rooms were very warm other than that it was a very enjoyable stay adn i would recommend.

Outside looked a bit dingy but inside was fine. Ideally situated for city centre shops, buses and mainline station. Would certainly stay there again.

We chose to stay at the Gardens Hotel simply because of the Location and Price and on this basis we were not dissapointed. However should you pay full price or be looking for a Good Quality hotel this is not the hotel to choose - I would rate it as a smiple 2* Hotel, the rooms are very dated and in need of redecorating, the bed is extreemly uncomfortable and the bathroom appears to be dirty - it's not but its just old and worn which makes it look un-clean. The 2 bedside Lamps were beyond repair, with burnt shades and loose fittings. We booked a room with a window which looked out onto the extractor unit which when it was on was very noisy. Location is perfect, right on Piccadilly Gardens with a Subway Takeaway and Wetherspoons next door which are ideal for breakfast and restaurants and shops just a few yards away.
