Lovely looking hotel but look closer and it’s not so pretty. The food in the restaurant is dreadful. Starter was cold and raw inside. My main meal was burnt to a crisp so much so I could have taken someone’s eye out with the bacon. Manager could not have cared less if he’d actually tried.

Hotel in need of refurbishment

Hotel is stuck in the 1970's, room and bathroom very different from pictures. Noisy location. The staff are very friendly and helpful though.

Copthorne Salford Quays

Good location, friendly staff. Avoid on MUFC match days (unless going to the footy!).

Functional and served a purpose

Pros: Location
Cons: Wifi and décor of the rooms, the bathroom in particular.
I was in Manchester for the Marathon, the location suited for the Start/Finish of the course. But the hotel is not modern, I presume it caters for a lot of match goers, given its location. Wifi was terrible in the hotel. Breakfast was a poor selection. It had a very dated appearance.

Romantic Weekend break

Pros: Location and view
Cons: See earlier comment
Location: 10 min Tram journey into the heart of Manchester. Great bars, eateries, shops and out door ice skating to get you in that Christmas spirit
Lovey location view from room was lovely. Breakfast tasty. Building looking a little tired inside and could do with a refresh and good clean. Overall staff very friendly. Was a little irritated Sunday morning having to wait a long time to be seated for breakfast. Saying this...had a lovely time and we would most definitely return.
