This is a very pleasant,comfortable and friendly place. I only stayed for one night as I was attending a concert at the Apollo theatre. Less than fifteen minutes walk to the Apollo. Only about five mins from either Oxford RD,or Piccadilly stations,so an excellent location. I was surprised at how clean and bright the entrance and reception area are. Just... More

It's fine for a crash pad, and the reception staff were helpful and friendly. The price isn't bad for central Manchester. Our room was very clean but tiny - no space to pass each other around the bed (and we're both small people), which made unpacking and generally spending time there awkward and unpleasant. The lighting was inadequate for dressing... More

Stayed here overnight on Friday 27th November 2015, really liked it here. The gentleman on reception (Jerry I think) was very welcoming and knowledgeable of the local area, the room was small but very well designed and very comfortable, it felt like a home from home. We will definitely be back. Mr and Mrs Crawford.

For a one- or two- night stay for business, the 'compact' rooms are fine. Reasonably comfortable with the right facilities for the price. I wasn't overly happy about being a ground-level with a courtyard, but didn't have any problems and wasn't woken in the night. The staff on the reception desk were welcoming and helpful. If you're looking for a... More
