I spend a lot of time in IHG hotels and finding the right one to where I was working at the Museum of Transport, Greater Manchester for a three night stay was difficult until I came across HI
Manchester Central Park.
It is a busy hotel during the week and parking can be difficult but not impossible, besides it is also secure.
Check In was smooth, friendly and efficient. My room was quite spacious with a very comfortable bed and a good sized bathroom but the largish chair prevents you working comfortably at the desk for you end up sitting sideways on to the laptop!
Dinner was quite ordinary yet very filling and reasonably priced. Breakfast was self service with all you can eat and more! I wasn't enamoured by the processed scrambled egg though and there was no egg alternative to be seen on any morning.
Check out was equally friendly and efficient. [Less]
