First stay at an Ibis hotel and really impressed! Great room size and so clean and tidy. Beds were a little hard, but for one night, it wasn't really an issue. It was very secure too - you can't operate the lifts without a room card, which means people can't just walk in at night.

We stayed here for one night while visiting Manchester for a gig at the Arena - the hotel location is right in the centre of town just a few mins walk from the train station. Good central location to explore Manchester. The hotel looks to have been recently refurbished, our room was spotlessly clean and fresh. The staff were all...

As the review below I was also there on the night of the fire alarm repeatedly going off. I went downstairs when the alarm went off worried that there may have been a fire for the staff downstairs to be very rude to me and tell me to go back upstairs as it was just a false alarm. On my...

I stayed 9 nights, caught the tram from the airport to St Peter's Square which is around the corner from the Ibis. I went to two shows both in short walking distance and two games at old Trafford again using the tram. The hotel is clean, all the staff friendly, and the breakfast a very good range to choose from....

The hotel looks lovely but if you want a nice sleep do not stay here. At 5 am the alarm rang but was stopped immediately suggesting it was a known fault. It then rang a further 10 times between 5am and 7 am. On suggesting we should get a refund as the purpose of a hotel is a good nights...

Excellent hotel for the price. The engagingly whacky decor in no way negates for cleanliness, friendliness, and surprisingly fresh and varied breakfast options. I have stayed in hotels for twice this price that are less friendly, stylish, clean, and definitely less imaginative in their interior design - check out the giant deckchair. It's clearly been refurbed very recently as, at...

Had a room on the fourth floor and was pleasantly surprised, paid over £100 but worth it. Beds comfortable, room really quiet, great location, bathroom amazing and breakfast was great. Charged only £1.00 to look after bags whilst we visited the Trafford Centre. Will definitely book here again when I'm next visiting my son, thank you.
