We stayed for one night and this is more a gym that happens to have rooms. The gym is very busy and the hotel bar, reception and restaurant are shared with members visiting the gym. The rooms are so small they are claustrophobic and not worth £85. They advertise that it’s cheape

Stayed for one night while visiting family in Didsbury. What a great little hotel. The staff were amazingly helpful and welcoming. They really couldn't do enough for the guests,but were also really genuine. The room was a little cosey, but not a problem as I was traveling alone.

I would highly recommend this hotel. The staff literally could not have been friendlier or more helpful. They went the extra mile - helped with suitcases, with pool access, finding an item we'ld lost in the room etc. The family room is small but clean and perfectly suited to ou

Is there a safe in rooms and is it big enough for laptop?
Hi, Unfortunately there are no safes in the room, I would also suggest that if you would like we can keep your laptop at the reception desk safe for you. All our small double rooms do not have desks but the majority of them do, if you require a desk just give us a call and we can allocate a room with a desk for you.

Hi how far by public transport is old trafford stadium
As others have mentioned the Waterside Hotel and leisure club is ideally located for public transport. Approximately 10 minutes away is the East Didsbury tram stop which will take you to Trafford bar, from there it is about a fifteen minute walk to Old Trafford. What is great about this is that if you are attending a football match you will get to experience the build up and excitement of walking down sir Matt Busby way with like minded football fans. At check in we can provide you with a small map which will give you further details.

"1st floor room -excellent! gorgeous bath, huge bed!"
"The small double is very small"
"Try book something bigger than a standard room, we found it very small."
"The best side of the hotel would be facing towards the Mersey River. If you wish for a bigger room, ask for a King Size."
"Ask for a river view room."
