I stayed at this hotel on 18th June as I was attending a concert at the Manchester Arena. I checked in at just after 3pm and was greeted by friendly staff and my check in was quick. Had a nice room on the 5th floor. The room was spacious and had a great shower in a little cubicle. The hotel...

Just been to see a take that concert and it was good that the hotel is only around the corner from the arena/Victoria train station. Staff are friendly, very clean hotel. Good location only downside is internet is very week and scrambled egg at breakfast is flavourles. Will return in the future.

This hotel is a good location for bars and the Manchester Arena. The rooms are big but basic. The lighting is very dim and yellow and there is no mirror near the main window which makes getting ready for a night out quite difficult. The breakfast is ok, but there isn't much choice midweek. If you stay here, make sure...

One of my criteria for choosing a Manchester hotel was free wifi in rooms, but don't be fooled by this promise by this particular hotel. What they actually mean by this is that you will have access to extremely slow, at times non-existent, wifi in your room, and if you want to be able to do anything much more than...
