got a good deal for a sunday night stop over while visiting xmas markets...very friendly reception staff ....first room offered was cold so swopped us to a warmer room...be it a small room....my only problem is that the lighting is so poor..once it dropped dark .we could hardly see to get ourselves ready at night......also woken up very early by traffic noise ..but i did request a room overlooking Portland street so my fault,,maybe a higher floor would have been better,,but a very pleasant and central hotel......
"Yes it is noisy but...."
There is no hiding the fact due to the age and location of this hotel it's noisy. You are on a main Manchester road, the windows are large but even with double glazing you are at one with street life. However staff are really nice, rooms spacious, very clean, beds a little too soft for me and I wish they had mugs instead of cups for the in room tea facilities. Wifi worked. Breakfast was good, black pudding perfect and served a la carte. Wouldn't make this my first choice hotel due to location and that road noise but if I had to stay again for work wouldn't complain. Liked the town hall view from my room.
"Good rooms, wifi issues, great eggs!"
Stayed in this hotel as an emergency booking as my booking at the Principal (amazing hotel) was messed up Its not fair to compare it to the principal, so I wont, but its not a bad reserve. The rooms are very good, they are large, comfortable and modern. The bathroom was excellent with a bath and a separate shower The reception and bar areas are a bit tired and the layout a bit higgledy piggledy The WIFI did not work very well, almost nothing and no ability to facetime or stream. rang reception but they were useless. said that was it really. Was going to give 3 stars but in the end the breakfast won back a star. The scrambled eggs were excellent (eggcellent) proper scrambled eggs and not bad sausages, its amazing how many hotels mess this up or use powdered or liquid eggs overall, a four (just)
"Clean and value for money"
Stayed here as it is fairly central to everything.. Check in was good and the reception staff were excellent. Room on 3rd floor was a good size and bathroom had separate shower and bath. All was very clean and tidy. Although busy main road outside , there was no noise... Would definitely return..Good 4star !!
Stayed here for a business trip, staff during the day where a little unhelpful however Kevin who is the night manager was extremely helpful. He is friendly and attentive and he is a credit to this hotel.
