Lovely hotel. Very clean, and friendly staff. Unfortunately the walls are very thin and we could hear the neighboring room occupants, especially in the bathroom! Which was very disturbing to say the least. If noise from other rooms is an issue you may need to rethink this one.

I stayed here whilst on business in the area. This hotel albeit a good price for the location is definitely lacking in several areas. The communal areas are nicely presented with the lobby, bar and restaurant all being a good standard, aside from the torn carpet in the lift. However the bedrooms are a different story. Scuffed walls with torn... More

I was at a conference for the weekend and needed somewhere nearby that was comfortable and restful so chose The Copthorne because it was on the Quays. I would agree with a lot of other reviews that this hotel is tired but I can forgive this as the view from my room was a delight. Although I have to say... More

We stayed at this hotel as we were entertaining clients at Old Trafford the following day. The price for one night was a staggering £219 which was excessive considering the state of the hotel. This hotel was built in the 90's and I don't think that has seen a lick of paint since. It so needs updating it is unbelievable... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the hotel. I have stayed at the several times before. It seems to need a little pick me up really. All seems very dated now in the rooms. They could do with updating the bathrooms as it is a 4 star hotel & certainly not cheap. The bar area is placed in an funny place... More

If what you want is a nice room that is clean with a good bed and a nice shower then this is a good bet. It ticks the boxes for these things. But....

Arrived early evening, and check-in was a fairly effortless affair. Was checked in quickly, but was not directed to our room until we asked for directions. Receptionist offered a complimentary morning newspaper, which never materialised on either the Saturday or Sunday morning.
