    Just stayed for 1 night, just bec we need to catch a early morning flight, find a place to stay over get clean and pack out stuff before flying. Can’t say much with the location, very convenient.

    I took the room with shower, but the water wasn’t hot enough. How can we bath in such a cold weather with cold water. At last we still need to go to the public bathroom, with hot water but the water pressure is too low

    The staff were excellent, everybody working at the hotel were very accommodating. Bedding clean and comfortable. Location was good for Manchester centre and surrounding area’s.

    We stayed 3 nights. Our room bordered the rear of Morrison’s and The Travel Lodge, so we had delivery noise very early every morning. Also early noise from the dray delivering to the pub below. The alleyway also attracted many homeless sleepers who were hellbent on arguing well into the early hours. What sleep we did have was very welcome. Nowhere to hang clothes and no control over heating times. Double glazing would be a massive benefit.
