First time visit to this hotel and we weren't disappointed, most of the rooms already before the 2 o'clock check-in, the reception staff were extremely helpful and sorted taxis for 18 of us as this was a new location we weren't sure the best way to get to the Trafford centre. The rooms were spotless and spacious, we all really...

This hotel is exactly what you'd expect. Clean, basic rooms and near the attractions. Service was fine and staff were helpful. We had a room with a sofa bed which was made up (as requested) when we arrived. The Tv remote needed new batteries but for a one night stay this was a good hotel choice. Breakfast was a free...

We stayed here to go to the arena. It's ok. Found the bed to be a bit too soft. You need to choose the right time for breakfast too as it gets very busy. Loved how close it was to the centre and arena. Only 10 minutes walk away from arena. Felt a bit uneasy leaving car in the Euro...

Stayed here 2 days ago for 1 night, the hotel was within walking distance from Manchester Victoria station (about ten minutes walk) and was in a perfect location for the arena and nearby shops and restaurants. The Arndale shopping centre is 5 minutes walk away, so is the Printworks and Northern quarter so couldn't have been better situated for us....

A great hotel perfectly situated for the Manchester arena, it was only a 10 minute walk away. Our room was a decent size and very clean and comfortable. The bathroom had a great sized shower and was again clean. My only complaint would be that there was no bacon for the breakfast in the morning!! Would recommend and use this...

This hotel is not flash, but it has professional, welcoming and friendly staff and the room we had was spotless - could not fault it!
