Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike557799 1st Rate Room - Very Modern
For a budget hotel, I found it to be 1st class, much better than Expresses of old. Excellent bathroom and comfy bed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by StevenSue Right price , right location
Smart hotel in the centre of Manchester, ideal for getting into town. Easy and secure car parking within walking distance. Room clean and comfortable. Great view from higher floors, we were on the tenth.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dee625 Design and comfort good, service lacking
This hotel has lots of minor issues mostly relating to housekeeping, maintenance and attitude of desk staff (*does not apply to one good desk staff person). You can get sleep here (providing air is working, there are no windows). Be on lookout for poor housekeeping. Very good breakfast, but watch for many dirty dishes. Good internet service. Several eating establishments and lots of pubs, convenience stores in area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Alright hotel, however next to noisy night club
Wouldn't recommend staying if you want a good night sleep. Hotel rooms right above a nightclub which had loud music from 10:00hrs to 04:00hrs. Very heavy baseline which vibrated the windows, was unable to sleep at all. This was on a Saturday night so maybe different throughout the week. Receptionist wasn't very customer friendly on arrival, and night receptionist was unable to offer me a room change. Breakfast was ok, not a huge variety, gets very busy late morning. Good location, bit out of the central area but not bad if you don't mind walking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SueUK Great service from caring staff
I booked this hotel because of its proximity to the university, and it was ideally located for that purpose. I later discovered that the free bus shuttle that travels around the city stops very close to the hotel, which was very useful.
While not in the hub of the city centre, the hotel has plenty of small shops and cafes around it, also a small cinema with cafe/bistro just down the road (the Cornerhouse), both of which we tried and can recommend.
The staff were so helpful and welcoming to me - I'd phoned to let them know that I'd had my car broken into and my luggage stolen, and they could not have been more helpful. It was also nice to be greeted by staff as you enter and leave the hotel.
The bedroom was a good size, well-equipped, clean and the bathroom modern and well-appointed. The view wasn't the most scenic at the back of the hotel, but it was quiet at night.
Although the hotel doesn't offer meals beyond breakfast, they do have a small bar downstairs, where breakfast is also served. Breakfast is complimentary so is adequate when taking that into account, but if I was staying for more than a couple of days I would become bored with the lack of choice. That said, there are cereals, fruit, toast, croissants, muffins, juice, beverages and a simple cooked breakfast buffet available.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by beebee66 Great Stop-over
This is a clean, comfortable hotel that was great for a short stop-over in Manchester but would have been equally nice to stay in for an extended period. The reception staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Breakfast was adequate although nothing remarkable. I'd definitely recommend staying there if you are looking for a good, clean, modern no non-sense hotel close to the city centre.

Used the car park nearby this was good value too for overnight. Room very dark which I loved.
