Stayed for 1 night with family whilst attending concert, great location & good value in central spot. Comfortable beds & powerful shower made it a great choice for the family. Nice tasty breakfast and lots of space to eat together - could of been as it was so early. Don't forget to ask for discount for car parking.

We stayed here on a Friday night and chose it due to price, location and included breakfast. We normally stay at Premier Inn's but decided to try somewhere different. We were off to the Manchester Arena that evening. Check-in was pain free. We were informed that wifi was free, however this proved difficult to log into. Our room was on...

Me & my cousin stayed for 1 night to see a concert at the MEN. We booked in plenty of time through booking.com so the price was excellent (£79 for a twin room). It is a short walk to the arena and also the Arndale. The room is small but that is fine because it's nicely decorated, the beds are...

Stayed overnight. Room was spacious and clean. Downstairs bar came in handy for a few pre-dinner drinks. A nice selection for breakfast cold or hot. Concierge booked a cab with no problems. Cab driver even met me inside. Close to all amenities and not too far from train station. Would definitely stay again.

Very happy with this place. Would definitely stay again. Very clean and the staff were brilliant aswell. Good size double room. Bathroom was spacious also. Breakfast was lovely had plenty of choice. Only downside was that it wasn't well signposted and drove past 3 times. No onsite parking but the car park was a stones throw away Would definitely recommend

Stayed for two nights in March. Great location near the Arndale Centre and tram station. Usual HIE rooms but provided to a very high standard. Terrific breakfast with much more choice than the normal HIE. Clean well appointed. Can't fault it.

This hotel is a short walk from Victoria station and conveniently placed for visiting the city. The room I was given was modern, spacious, clean with a comfy bed and a great shower. The rooms are no frills but have everything you need for a stop over. Breakfast was quite good for this type of hotel, some of the bread...
