Great for a spontaneous trip”

I booked this hotel late therefore was very suprised at the very competitive price. The room wa the lowest price available so I didn't expect much. I won't lie; it's no 5* hotel with oodles of facilities and perks. The bathroom didn't have any real supplies and the room wasn't too well equipped. That said... for what I paid it was spot on. The chap who greeted me wa very friendly and even let me stay in a double room (I paid for a single). The room was warm and the bed comfortable (more than my own). The shower wa a treat and had plenty of power in it and the room was quiet with no disturbances. If I wanted a holiday I'd look elsewhere (preferably somewhere that needs a plane journey), but if I want somewhere reasonably priced and comfortable to get my head down whilst visiting my home city, then sure.. I'd happily come back here.

Be sure you know what you are getting”

This is not a 'Guesthouse'. It is some old dingy rooms over an old pub. While the location is very good, the accommodation is very poor. I went here with my 18 year old son for the week end to taken in a Manchester United game. For two guys, we didn't mind much as long as we had someplace to lay our heads, but if you go there expecting a certain standard, you are likely to be quite upset. The place is not clean, it is old and run-down. The shower holder was broken, but I managed to use it as a hose in my hand. There is no shampoo or shower gel. Some bits are held together with tuff-tape. You get the idea. You do get a kettle and some tea bags. It is old and run down. Positives: If this doesn't bother you, the beds were at least clean and there are no creepy-crawlies. It is cheap. Check-out comprises of putting your key into a mailbox inside and closing the door behind you. Nobody bothers you and it's relatively quiet for so close to the city center. Just be aware of what you are getting when you book it.

You get what you pay for”

This is a "you get what you pay for place". Very cheap, but there is damp, the wallpaper is coming off the walls, carpets are worn, it's very pokey. There are also Christmas decorations up. A note on the stairs says that a film crew are filming a Christmas TV show but I saw no evidence of this. Having said all that, my room was warm, my bed was comfortable, it has 24h access and it's close to central Manchester so has plenty of restaurants etc in walking distance. It is good value, but remember value = quality/price.

A very cheap price”

Friendly welcome and straightforward check in. The bed was comfortable. The room was generally clean but some areas were quite dusty. Corridors and stairs could do with decoration. TV would not change channel and there was no volume. Don't expect luxury accommodation. If you just need somewhere to sleep within walking distance of the city it would be hard to find a better price.

Wasn't worth it to us”

We arrived and thought that it must be closed down. The door was reinforced with a confusing message taped to it. Once inside the Christmas decorations were up (it's the end of July) it's was dark and bleak in the pub. I use a wheelchair and we were given a room on the top floor meaning I had to climb the narrow stairs up two flights as there was no lift. The lights on the stairways were flickering resulting in headaches and dizziness among the group. The room itself wasn't initially too bad although upon spending a few minutes there we realised that the door to the hallway outside didn't lock so we ended up not sleeping well, for fear that someone could just walk in. There was no double glazing on the windows and the window was also cracked meaning the room was freezing cold. To make it worse in the morning we spotted the bedbugs retreating back into their home full of our blood. A member of the group had a room that locked but had no door on his bathroom. Overall the hosts were alright to us but the hotel wasn't at all suitable and I doubt that they've ever updated anything or replaced anything that was broken. I won't be staying again.

'Bates Motel' would probably be more comfortable.”

Good location for where we needed to be. Checking out involved posting the room key in a letterbox

We stayed here for a night. After reading reviews averaging around 3 stars, we expected cheap and cheerful at best. What we got was horrific, and falsely advertised. The images are easily dated 10+ years ago (an ash tray is pictured on one of the bedside tables, suggesting they pre-date non-smoking laws - something we noticed too late). The outside of the building appears derelict. The front door was fortified like a night club, (key-code number to enter after 11pm), but showed signs somebody had attempted to kick it in recently. Credit where it's due; the staff were friendly enough, and the bar area appeared cosy. However, the staircase leading to the rooms was like stepping into a different era. The wallpaper was peeling off everywhere. The woodwork was nicotine-stained. The written warnings about not taking food into the rooms due to food hygiene laws were ironic, considering crumbs would be the very least of the hygiene issues in the rooms. The door to room No. 10, where we stayed, would not close properly. It appeared to have been kicked in a few times. It could have easily have been pushed open even when locked. The ceilings and walls were cracked. More peeled wallpaper. The stench of damp and bleach was nauseating. The bleach-stained bed linen had not been cleaned, and the velour headboards had some rather suspicious looking claw marks on them… The teacups provided were unsanitary. The bathroom was carpeted, damp, peeling, and absolutely horrendous. The toilet’s overfill drained directly into the shower! The shower had hair all over it, and the shower curtain was mouldy. There was a strategically hanged mirror to hide a big hole in the wall where pipes were exposed. On top of all this, there was dirt, dust, and grime virtually everywhere, which had obviously accumulated over a number of years. This “hotel” should be shut down immediately. Don’t make the same mistake we made. Do your research; take EVERY bad review seriously, and book elsewhere.

not expensive, free bus routes near by, close to MOSI

The room is okay, bigger than I would have expected. Clean inside the room but the corridor and stairs are very worn out. There are free buses going on street nearby. My room was facing a bridge where trains go by so it was a little bit noisy but still not too bad. It is okay for my budget.

Absolutely terrible experience - not sure how councils allow such hotels. I am still in shock!”

Firstly, Guys - Do not book this hotel. I am sure you will remember my words if at all you book this hotel as soon as you step into the doors. Its like nothing i have ever imagined in my dreams and the worst nightmare.... The carpet is stuck to the floor with muddy outlines and is probably 20+ year old. The rooms are never cleaned, repainted or maintained for years. You will surely have a sick feeling once you enter until you leave. The things that done work: Only tea facility provided... no coffee kit provided No Soap/Shampoo Provided Old water diluted handwash soap (Terrible) Wifi connects but drops every 2 mins. - In effect never works. Please avoid at all costs OR risk booking this hotel - upto you
