I booked one night into this Hotal mainly because it was near the venue for cycling sportive on the Sunday and response to reviews. Due to current regulations on traveling and sport in current virus lockdown it was very quite at the Hotal and parking . The access had both steps and ramp access. The reception was managed I had to fill in form currently showing why I was there ,and meet government guidelines on travel. I had to give my reason for travel .
The receptionist was very friendly and ask if I needed teas and coffee etc so was given in individual bag all good practice. I was given a ground floor room over looking the car park so that was nice . Now the room ( see pictures) It was a comfortable room with all the basic features including kettle fridge and microwave flat screen TV double bed .
I must say the bathroom was first class newly renovated fantastic shower clean and tide towels. The main room was a little tired overall , the carpet had few stains and small section of wallpaper had come away and was hanging down . The microwave needed cleaning inside and I found three pork pies in the fridge? Had good night sleep very quite
Needed somewhere to lay our heads before a funeral and the free parking here drew me in.
Confirmed requirements and availability a week or so beforehand.
Arrived around 2200 having driven the 200+ miles from Hampshire and the receptionist was very helpful and efficient.
Covid restrictions meant the hotel was nearly empty and our ground floor room seemed suitably clean and secured.
A double room with standard wall mounted tv, fridge, microwave, kettle etc looked just the ticket. The bathroom was fairly small and the heated towel rail was on full blast - unfortunately, the WC is so close to this heat source it was impossible to sit down and not brand your legs!
The double bed mattress was quite thin and lumpy which, combined with the paper thin pillows, meant sleep was not as comfortable - or as easy to come by - as I had hoped.
We knew there was no food so packed stuff for our own continental breakfast in bee.
In hindsight maybe one of the nearby chain hotels would have been better, but their lack of inclusive parking meant I opted for the lumpy mattress and broken sleep. A wrong choice by me!
I had booked a room for 3 nights as working in the area.
They then send an email saying you can only book in from 3pm until 11pm with NO flexibility for me.to check in just prior to my shift starting at 3pm even despite the circumstances!!
Booking is now cancelled after talking to the hotel and explaining the situation and being told Tough
Hi, I stayed here for work as a shopfitter, couldn't fault the staff, very clean hotel, fridge and microwave in the room and very clean tiled shower/toilet room, very cheap, I got the room for £38pn, it is a bit off the beaten track but there is a petrol station and local pubs, it's about 1ml from centre
The first time we stopped in Manchester and booked here as the photos on the booking site looked decent. When arriving we were unsure as to weather the hotel has been closed down as it was dark, dingy and didn’t look like it was open. We made our way to the side entrance and on route saw an eye sore of a conservatory boarded up and full of junk. Alongside this was a full skip that was in need of emptying. Entering the building it was dark, outdated and dirty. The corridors running to our room were filthy, didn’t look like they’d been hoovered in a good while. Entered our room and it was basic but sleepable. However like the corridors all the floor in the bedroom was filthy and in need of a good hoover. The bathroom was the best part about the stay as it was modern, fresh towels and toiletries were provided however the floor was also dirty and stained. We stayed for two nights and both nights we were kept awake by people upstairs banging and shouting for hours on end. The banging upstairs we believe to be permanent tenets/owners. I have seen many reviews saying you get what you pay for but I don’t believe this to be true. If I’m paying for a hotel I expect a standard level of cleanliness that I just didn’t receive.
