Very good location, friendly helpful staff, big comfortable bed, decent breakfast.
Not much space in the room for anything but the bed, no volume control on the shower so it felt a bit like a scrubber.
Location, room style
Shower and bath
Great location for a night in Manchester
Staff very friendly. Great location.
Bathroom very small
Location to City centre
Bedroom and bathroom very dated
The siting of the hotel was excellent, for access to Piccadilly train station and the University. It was also well placed for a number of good restaurants and pubs. I did not use the hotel restaurant, so cannot comment on it. The welcome reception was very good, and the staff very friendly. The room was comfortable and very clean.
The room was rather spartan, but otherwise comfortable and certainly very clean. Nevertheless, it was not a room in which I wished to spend any time. The bathroom was also rather uninviting, although again clean and with a reasonable shower. I did have to wait a long time for the shower water to heat up, and it was never too hot.
Heart of Manchester
Location, friendly staff
TV didn't work, Mattress lumpy
The beds were very uncomfortable and the walls paper thin so could hear everything in the rooms either side so did not have a good nights sleep
Great location, friendly and helpful staff, quiet, comfortable and solid wifi
lovely big rooms soft comfortable bed
Love how close it was to the center and the staff was very helpful x
Good facilities Great breakfast
Bar to pricey
The location was bang on , right in the centre of Piccadily , not too far from Deansgate and the shops and bars / restaurants of Manchester, room was clean tidy and despite being inner city the windows kept the noise out !
Wasn't anything disliked really was great.
everything was perfect
Location and cost
Location from Piccadilly Train Station. Location for shopping. Staff. Breakfast.
Nothing really, perfectly adequate for one or two night stay due to location.
We only stopped a night but it's bang in the centre of Manchester. Nice hotel room was clean and comfy good air conditioning and free WiFi !
Other than the bath being quite small the shower made up for it.
help full staff/ shower pressure/ comfort of bedroom/ breakfast /
tired gym and pool facilities
Great location Ideal for for the city centre Good for the museum of football Close to bars and plenty of places to eat if not eating in hotel the breakfast was very good
Had a fantastic weekend in Manchester and having a great hotel sure helped
The beds where extremely comfy and the room was very clean!
The location was great breakfast and staff v good.
The room was v small and disappointing for the money we paid , the bed was extremely uncomfortable both suffering from bad backs after vist and a lot of tossing and turning .
The Hotel has polite friendly reception staff, the rooms are clean and comfortable. Beds are quite soft but I didn't mind and I slept well. Iron & board in the room which was great. It was Mardi Gras weekend but the room was still quiet (6th floor front). I would definitely stay here again.
Having somehow made it back to the hotel while intoxicated the night porter asks to see your room key! I never realised how difficult a challenge this is while barely able to stand! The Wi Fi signal was week and slow but I lost my phone on the first night so no longer needed "free wi fi".
