Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave659 My second home
I have been staying here on Oxford Road at least two days a week, sometimes three or four days a week, every single week since January 2013 - it has become my second home.
What can I say?
The staff are great - especially Will and Graham - real gents.
The rooms are, as you would expect from this type of hotel, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and reasonably priced.
If you can, get an "odd" numbered room as these do not overlook the nightclub which, occasionally can be a little "thumpy".
I like odd numbered rooms up on the 10th floor as these are silent.
Parking is easy and cheap and there is a Spar directly underneath that is open 24/7 if you fancy something.
I initially chose this hotel as it is within a 1 minute walk to the place where I have been working whilst in Manchester, although I now use it when I am working at sites other than this local one.
My "go-to" Manchester hotel.
If ever they are full (which indeed does happen - especially when there is some football match on locally), you can be sure to get a room in the Salford Quays one. That's good too.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dave 88 Good for use of free Metro bus
A free No2 Metro bus stop was just outside the hotel. This made travel to the city centre during the day very convenient during the day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clive 1308 Great swish modern hotel
The location of this hotel is excellent in terms of having quick access to the main areas of interest in Manchester. If you are travelling by train, it is off at Oxford road and you have arrived. A really clean hotel, with excellent rooms that are very nicely laid out, the bathrooms are particularly swish with great shower room space. Very helpful staff and for the rates they charge offers great value for money. I would definitely stay again.

Breakfast selection needs improvement. Better airconditioning would be nice. I stayed end of June and it was so hot! Check out is 11:00 am but housekeeping knocked on my door at 9:45am asking what time I was going. Staff very helpful and friendly. Quiet and clean room, comfy bed, power shower so nice. Just outside the hotel is a free shuttle that takes me to the City Centre and only takes less than 10 minutes. Buses are frequent. There are bars near the hotel too. The hotel is a 20-minute walk from the City centre.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable bed and great service
Good choice for City Centre Manchester - not right in the centre but close enough to get there easily and far enough away to be a little more quiet

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Colster Excellent Staff
The hotel is very clean and pleasant and the Hotel staff went out of their way to make our stay a pleasurable one.
When we arrived the Aircon in the room we had wasn't working properly and as it seems the norm now to have all windows sealed shut it was going to be very stuffy in there! A quick trip to reception to see the Duty Manager he changed the room straight away. He could have just moved us across the hall, but being thoughtful he didn't as the pub /club that is nearby may have something on, and that would affect us in the room possibly. I wasn't aware of this pub / club but he made the extra effort to find another room that was away from this.
Breakfast was ok and the food available was of good quality, however I would liked to have seen a better option of the hot food. There was however Scrambled Egg, Sausages and Beans. Along with Toast, Cereal, Yoghurts, Fruit and Croissants. Personally I like a good fry up, but there was plenty on offer. The only drawback is if you time the visit wrong (The last hour of the breakfast serving time) Then you will have to queue for a table as there are not enough. May I suggest using one of the meeting rooms you offer as an overspill in these cases?
All in though it was a very pleasant stay and the late checkout option a definite plus!! I would stay here again should I ever return to Manchester.
