Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stevie B1971 Nice Hotel, No natural air and broken air con
Having looked at the pictures of the rooms on the website, i thought they looked very modern, however the window is one big piece of glass and on arrival we noticed there was no way of opening them, the room was stifling hot, there is air con in the room but you have to call reception every time you want it put on so you have no real control of it. I would guess this is a cost cutting exercise due to the intense heat while we were there rather than an 'issue with the control panel as suggested by the staff, this resulted in either a very restless uncomfortable night or a very noisy restless night when the air con was on.
other than that the staff were nice enough and the hotel looks good and is well placed for most things in Manchester, just don't expect a good nights sleep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Clean hotel, relatively new
Good room, but was smaller then I expected. A/C unit was a little noisy.
Parking was complicated, pay machine is either coins or pay by phone, and access to the front of the hotel is down cobbled lane, and due to construction work all around the hotel it is hard to see in the dark. (I didn't have any noise from the building site).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by clareboo1978 Nice Hotel - Shame about the bar prices
Overall our stay was good, but we were very disappointed with the bar prices - even with 25% off for Happy Hour the drinks were still extortionately priced.
Check in was a bit chaotic as my booking seemed to have been processed incorrectly online and they wanted more money from me which I refused to pay as my booking confirmation was correct for the number of people I had booked for, and the receptionist was very helpful in sorting this out.
The look and feel of the hotel was lovely and it is in a good location - the décor

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Westwood Great location
A good hotel well positioned for exploring Manchester. Plenty of nice bars and restaurants nearby. Parking is a bit of a pain, but cheap enough and current construction work outside of the hotel made it difficult to temporarily park up safely whilst getting parking details and ticket from reception. I would certainly consider this hotel if returning to Manchester.

This is a great hotel if you want to be close the Arndale centre. There are plenty of places to eat close by so lots to choose from.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alison9463 Comfortable Bed and a good tea and coffee machine
Was a good stay in Manchester. The hotel was located near manchester city centre, which is very handy if you want to go down to the centre. The coffee and tea machine are very use for making a cup of drink. the bath room was clean all the time and bed is always made when we are out. Only disappointment is that i found the pillows a bit uncomfortable. But overall, it was a great stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AAL1970 Excellent hotel
I am very satisfied with almost all aspects of the hotel - from room to staff to breakfast. I would highly recommend it.
Just a couple of notes: 1) "Free internet everywhere" is basically not true. The connection quality is very poor when you choose the "free" option, which forces you to pay 4.50 pounds a day. 2) The compact fluorescent lamps in the bathroom take ages to reach maximum capacity - and even when they do, they are not too bright. They could isntead use either better quality CFL or use LEDs, as long as they are "warm white/ 2700-3000K, anything else is too "cold".3) It would be nice to have a minibar.
