My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night while we were in Manchester for a gig. The location is great in terms of being within a half an hours walk to the city centre, plenty of shops and restaurants around whilst walking towards the city centre and the hotel was easy to find using google maps. The hotel take a £25 security deposit upon checking in and then just deduct the parking charge (£14.50 I think) but the car park was very secure and we felt fine leaving the car over night. Our room was a great size with everything we could’ve really needed. Hairdryer, iron, kettle, tea/coffee, a fan etc. Very spacious room and did more than enough for the one night we needed it for. My main issue with the hotel is the fact that the bathroom didn’t have a door, and although I was staying with my girlfriend, we found it rather uncomfortable showering etc. with literally no door and the bed being right outside the entrance to the bathroom. Again, the pressure of the shower was great but our temperature knob was broken and fell off as soon as we tried to change it so we were stuck with quite a hot shower. Another issue is that we booked a double room, and the preference was a double bed but our bed seemed to be two singles together with a big sheet over the two. Over all it did the job for a single night but any longer and these things may of been a bigger issue. The young girl on the desk who checked us in and out was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The front desk and the bar are open 24 hours if either are needed.

Hotel's Favourite
The Ainscow is a lovely hotel just minutes walk from Spinningfields which is full of great bars and restaurants as well as some high end shopping. The hotel is immaculately clean and well looked after. The only maintenance issue we had was reported and dealt with well. The staff are friendly and professional. It’s a great location with on site car parking (reasonably charged) and only twenty minutes walking distance from Manchester City centre if you want to go that far. The Ainscow breakfast is fresh and service excellent. There is no full restaurant for dinner (so many good restaurants on the doorstep though you are spoiled for choice in Spinningfields so no issue with that) but offers pizza and bar drinks in the bar/lounge with really great prices for drinks - offering bottle wine from £12.50 when we stayed which is very good value. This is our second stay and we will always book the Ainscow for our Manchester visits.

First impressions were great with a lovely reception and bar when you walk in. The staff were really friendly and welcoming. Our room was lovely and a good size with all amenities we needed and comfy beds. Plenty of space in the car park. We didn’t walk into Manchester so not sure how long it would take but it was only a short taxi journey

When coming back to the hotel by myself, I was on the phone and irritated about something entirely external to the hotel, and the man at the reception cornered me and demanded that I prove to him that I stayed at the hotel, despite not asking anyone else to do this. When I asked why I was being selected, another receptionist jumped in and claimed that everyone is asked to prove that they are staying here, despite that not being true. When I pointed this out and showed my key card, the managers were still horrible and rude and laughed at me when I asked to understand why I was the only one selected. Do not stay if you value being treated like a human being or like polite staff. The staff treat you like muck on the side of the road despite being paying customers. Worst treatment I have ever received from a hotel in my entire life. I will never stay here again and I would ABSOLUTELY not recommend staying here.

Booked two nights at the Ainscow Hotel for a short Staycation. The entire booking process was quite easy through Booking.com. Did the check-in online a few days before, arrived at the hotel and did not had the wait too long to get my room key. I booked the mezzanine room (325) due to be somewhat spacious, I am not comfortable with small rooms. Restaurant, Kitchen and bar are available. . The hotel: Modern building, clean and good access expect the main entrance, no wheelchair access. - The staff: Very respectful, professional, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. - The mezzanine room I was in is spacious, the spiral staircase bit narrow since I'm quite muscular and the they wobble a bit, the steps are slight narrow. Downstairs there's a bathroom, some cupboards, kettle, unfortunately no mini refrigerator a small sofa bed and a tv. Upstairs a bathroom with shower, the bed is quite comfortable, TV screen (2 tvs both share the same remote). And need to say with honesty that the carpets are in desperate need of a full cleanup and good washing, there's bit of an odour coming from the carpets. Downside is the noise coming from the room above, the floorboards make a lot of noise when people are walking back and forth. - Wi-Fi available however somewhat unstable, good connection for about 5 minutes, then disconnects for a few seconds then back again, so if you are planning work from the room and use a company laptop it can become challenging. - Good road access to Salford and Manchester City Centre, carpark available however not free. I honestly recommend this hotel, I had a good staying and will book again.
