One night stay

Hotel was nice & staff were helpful. However, the nights sleep was horrendous due to other guests cavorting on our corridor between the hours I'd 3.45 & 5.15 am, which was disgraceful. I called Reception twice and they did attend but it continued. I would not stay there again, area not good & obviously attracts a certain clientele.

Sleepless in Manchester!

Quality of soundproofing double glazing very poor and as a result lots of noise from people outside and road noise that spoilt our stay.

Great location, poor choice of lager and pricey!!

Great room, great location, lovely staff. Only 1 thing to moan about would be the price of the drinks and food!! £11.90 for a club sandwich is ridiculous and your lucky if you get any change out of a £10 for 2 drinks! Sort this out and it's a perfect place to stay!!
