Superb!

This was a very last minute booking for a weekend getaway into Manchester. Was very impressed with the appearance of the hotel itself (inside and out). Hotel as a whole very clean, the rooms had everything we required. We only booked a standard room but were very impressed with the layout and size of the room. The bed was very comfortable as well. Staff very helpful and carpark literally around the corner! Couldn't have been happier.

Cramped but adequate

It is well located but our "double" room was a single with a double bed. Very cramped.

Great location, friendly staff

Good clean budget accommodation close to city centre. Ideal for a night out. 10 mins walk from Oxford Rd and Picadilly stations. Free wireless. Only negative is our room was very small. Not an issue for us but could be for others. Would use again.

DREADFUL! DIRTY.

Bar area and courtyard were shockingly filthy. Room was tiny and cramped. Absolutely abhorred by the money paid for this dreadful experience.

Small cramped noisy student type accomodation

A room to remind you of your student days, with a kettle, iron and hair-dryer included. You can listen to the rowdy arrival in the middle of the night of your fellow guests though the thin doors and semi-sealing window. Sharing a double bed will leave one of you hugging the wall in the small rooms. Yes, it's good on price and the staff are friendly and helpful. Close to the centre of town and station Good for groups that can book a whole section of a floor to themselves.

Good value for money

This hotel is situated between Picadilly station and the city centre. Seven minutes to each of them. Good value for money for a weekend. If you are going to Old Trafford you can also pick a tram from Piccadilly station.

No frills but good service and handy for town

I booked a double room for me and my wife because it was close to the conference venue that I was attending. It was also close to the main railway station and the centre of town. The staff, and I mean all of them that we met, were friendly and helpful. On the downside the room, whilst it had everything we needed, was small and rather cramped. Since we were only really there to sleep (out early, back late!) it was ok. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the food.

Good price for good hotel

The staff were pleasent and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable although nothing special. Good location close to bars at Canal street and just a short distance from Arndale centre. Would book again for just a Saturday overnight stay.
