Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rocket1973 Ideal location but.....
Perfect location and lovely views, clean and bright and breakfast was really hot and good value -
BUT - family room was a double bed and an old rusty sofa bed which was supposed to sleep 2 children and my two children found t so uncomfortable, did not sleep well. The mattress was wafer thin and the spring loud and squeaky. There is no way anyone could sleep on it. Then the shower - we tried adjusting in all different ways and even asked Concierge but they were unhelpful, all that came out was a slight trickle and very disappointing. The hot and cold taps wee the wrong way round which I believe is pretty dangerous in a family room.
Overall - we only stayed one night whilst visiting a friend, got in quite late and left early. I would stay again but never in a famil room have 2 doubles instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dmafma Such friendly and helpful staff
All the staff we had dealings with were unfailingly cheerful, helpful and polite. More like staying in a small private hotel than a chain hotel. Well done to everyone

We stayed as a family for one night so I could enter an open swim competition at the water sports centre next door to the hotel.
Tom was very helpful and we were able to have a late check out so that I could shower and change after my competition.
The breakfast was excellent with a seamless top up of anything that needed it.
Very helpful, cheerful staff, a clean well appointed room and a fantastic location.
Will definitely return!

I stayed for the Robbie Williams concert at the MEN and the desk staff were friendly and prepared with transport details to the venue. The rooms were clean and comfortable with breakfast included. We were able to leave the car in the car park after check out which was ideal for shopping the following day.

Stayed for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding at the Lowry Theatre. Needed to relax and unwind before the wedding and then get back to unwind after and before travelling home. Hotel, room and all facilities gave us the means to do this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary and John A Wonderful weekend
We arrived early but had no trouble parking the car or checking in and changing before our visit to the Lowery which is only 10min walk away , our room at the rear of the Hotel on the 3rd floor was excellent with a good view of the area as a bonus.
The Hotel is in a quiet area so there was no noise at night even with the windows open( we did switch the Aircon off) . Breakfasts the both days where good with a good choice of pasries and fruit along side the cooked food if you wanted it .
All in all we had a most enjoyable stay and most certainly will be back when we visit the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andy_mc86 A good hotel for work
Stayed here on Monday 9th June and had a very good stay. The hotel is well located and there are plenty of nearby places for an evening meal if required. The room was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable - just what was needed after a long day of travel and meetings. Only slight downside was needing to pay for parking but that seems quite common of hotels and retail parks around that area of Manchester.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pietkoos Good, but definitely room for improvement. Ecellent setting.
This hotel has home away from home feeling with nice setting next to the water with excellent access to quite a lot of restaurants within walking distance.Basic rooms, but very clean!. Room service disappointing. Cleanliness of breakfast cutlery unsatisfactory two stays in a row. Also limited range on breakfast menu. Good in general.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lovelysweetpea Decent hotel, though watch out for parking charges
Have stayed at this hotel before and once again had a good stay. The only downside was the long time to get served at the bar following an evening out. They only had one girl serving, which was inadequate for the demand for drinks, as a lot of residents had all returned from the same event at Old Trafford. Also hadn't realised there is now a parking charge - not huge, but a bit annoying

I was very impressed with the location of the hotel over looking the Quays. IT was nice to wake up in the morning and see people having a swim in the quays and all the activity going on in the various clubs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kevinthefisherman Convenient location and attentive staff
Hotel is in a good location for visiting many of the sights. Impressive waterfront location with half the bedrooms and the lounge area facing the quayside. It lacks a restaurant, but there are plenty of eateries in the area. Bedrooms are adequate with choice of firm and not-so firm pillows (not soft enough for me - but hotel pillows never are!). My rooms have always been clean. Parking tip - if using the car park, make sure the receptionist keys in the corrent number of nights or you may get a hefty parking charge in the post.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jade1234 Very friendly and helpful staff! :)
Myself and a friend stayed at this hotel when we were going to a concert at the MEN Arena. We booked it not realising how far away it was from the arena (we had no car with us!)... However, there was a taxi rank near the Media City which was very helpful for us!
The room was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful! Although there wasn't a huge variety to choose from at breakfast, it was all very nice anyway!
I would stay here again, but bring my car with me next time!!! :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chocbrownie26 Very comfortable room and friendly staff
On arrival the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely very quiet clean and everything we needed was there. I liked the choice of pillows which meant a great night sleep. Location was great for a concert at the Lowry and being near to the metro easy to get into the city centre. Breakfast was lovely. Good choice of hot and cold food.

Having recently had an over night stay at the holiday inn salford quays, i found this really pricey, hence it was the manchester run and magic weekend this i feel the reason to over charge.!! On arrival i booked a double room, only to find i'd been given a twin. Rang down to reception where they were helpful and said come back down we will put you up in your desired double. Having done so i went to my new room only to find it was a twin again, obvieously frustrated by now i wanted this sorted. So eventually an hour later i get my double room at the third attempt. My partner was very upset by this with her not really feeling well after our 3hr drive down.
I also again found the breakfast half hearted there was no bacon on the cooked breakfast, nor was there hash browns or tomatoes or mushrooms!!! To be perfectly honest it was sausage, beans, rubbery scrambled egg, and toast. Same with the continental where i didnt see a yoghurt in site. Overall experience was very disapointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by greystone Good location and excellent service.
Great location, on canal and close to Old Trafford football ground and Media City whilst only a short tram ride into city center.
We went to watch a concert and do a spot of sightseeing.
The hotel was very clean, comfortable and with good decor. The front desk staff could not have been more helpful.
