Nice stay

Very warm welcome by reception check in staff. I was even given a complementary upgrade to next room up. Only thing missing in the room was WIFI connect info and room service contact info. I had to physically come down to reception to get the number. Other wise i enjoyed the stay. Thanks

A good and economical hotel great value for money and well plast for Manchester airports. Had a good and comfortable nights sleep. And a excellent buffet lunch for only £9.95. Would Definitely use again.

Would never stay here again.

The hotel looks ok from the outside but once you go inside it's much different it's old and dirty would need a major make over The doors on the corridor to the bedrooms could do with a painting as the paint has all peeled off the carpet is so worn and dirty . I would never stay here again . Staff not very friendly either.

Below average

I stayed here for a week on business First impressions of the hotel is generally pretty good, as it has a nice looking hotel lobby. h However once you get into the depth of the maze of corridors the decor is dated and poorly designed. My first night I was tired from travelling so I ordered room service. The burger tasted and smelt like what can only be described as canned dog food. I ate a few of the chips but the smell of the steaming piece of hand crafted meat completely destroyed my appetite. I was actually pleased to find a long black hair in the centre of the burger. This gave me an excuse to return the food and recieve a full refund. My room was boiling hot the whole time, and I had a constant sound of industrial equipment on the roof top opposite my room. My view consisted of a lovely site of rusting metal pipes and a light that beamed through my room at night. I didn't bother trying any of the restaurants if the food was to be of the same standard as the room service It didn't cost me a lot to stay here but I will be spending that extra bit more in the future... The sole reason I chose this hotel was the close proximity to my place of business, I would not recommend this to any family stays or business trips.
