Stayed over Thursday to Sunday and was made very welcome, I have problems with balance and climbing stairs but every member of staff from arrival to departure helped with carrying luggage up, assisting me up and down stairs and ensuring I was ok at all times. Room was great, comfy bed, fantastic shower, close by for eateries and other bars....

The New Union at the bottom - or top of canal st depending on your approach is a great little institute of gay Manchester. Often the first gaybar chickens will visit. Cabaret is ok. Drinks prices are ok. I've never stayed over so can't comment. Lived in Manchester over x10 years and never heard anything about the budget accommodation. Good...

On a night out in Manchester it is difficult to find a place which is friendly, has a positive atmosphere, comfort setting and plays great music. We stumbled across this bar last night and from the overflowing throng of the masses, this pub was a brilliant place to gather at yourself. The beer and spirits are what you would expect...

Myself and two friends stayed here on a Wednesday night. We was going to see Ghost the musical and booked this hotel as we knew it was nearby. Nice spacious room with 2 double beds, nice easy access through a side door. Only thing was when you came to check in you had to walk through the pub (which is...

Stayed there for one night on my last night in UK. My experience was terrible. Party on the bar downstairs went on till 4 am. Tiny and not isolated walls do not help with very loud music. The whole room was vibrating with the lower frequencies of the woofer and it was really unbearable and impossible to get some sleep....

Typical basic room for 45£ through booking. Large bed was amazingly comfy. Modern clean bathroom and hot water ensuite. Very friendly. Rooms situated above a bar and based at the end of canal Street. Expect noise from pub and nearby until around 2am ish- my visit was on a Wednesday so not as busy as it would be at weekends....
