We stayed here mainly because of the free onsite parking and proximity to Manchester University. After heavy rain some areas of the car park were flooded! The rooms were fairly comfortable but in general the hotel is rather tired with only one slow, creaky lift to access the upper floors. The buffet restaurant food is fairly good but the overall...

I have lost count of the number of times I have stayed at this hotel which is incredibly reasonably priced for its proximity to Manchester Airport with parking included in the room price. My most recent stay was as a single traveller and it is probably the only time I have been rather disappointed with my room – tucked away...

Stayed recently, none of us slept due to the very hard lumpy beds, fire doors slam so that when you do fall asleep you wake. Reception staff not particularly welcoming, and when checked out barely acknowledged us! Pool is £5, which is extortionate, therefore we decided not to use it. Food (breakfast) adequate, but do not cater for.vegetarians. Cleaning staff...

Dark ,gothic interiors,yet another "Herman Munster" type mansion. Evening dinner was actually ok with a decent choice of items served buffet style. Upon returning...

Upon arrival it had a good impression, it was only when we got to the desk and met what can only be described as a moody teenager who was not helped what so ever that we realised our mistake. We got to the room which was like an inferno, and riddled with dust/grime and a view of a half trashed...
