Superb hotel”

This hotel is easy to find, the location is in the heart of Piccadilly. The staff were so helpful. Rooms clean tidy and comfortable, we had a twin room and we had plenty of space. Breakfast was served 7-10 and it was a feast, iltjete was something for everyone. We were there to watch a football match and they ordered a taxi and within minutes it was there. I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. Thanks

Good place to stay”

Convenient location as a central hotel. Parking at Charles street in multi-storey car park for £4.00 overnight during the weekend. Comfortable bed, heating was a but of a struggle as you can only set it up for 2 or 4 hrs, so by morning it is pretty cold. Bath is very narrow (i am one of those very skinny people) but every time I turned around, i banged my hips into the shower gel holder or got the shower curtain stuck on my back. Sunday early morning a very loud music was coming from the hotel lobby and woke us up (highest floor room). Did the job

Accommodations in Manchester are not cheap, so if you're looking for a reasonable-priced place that's clean, with friendly staff and a fantastic location, this might be the place! The facility is kind of worn out and really could use a complete makeover, but they seem to be caring for it the best that they can. Breakfast was very good.
