You get what you pay for. Cheap weekend away in Manchester, hotel is in a great location, the centre is in walking distance and there are lots of bars and places to eat near by. Rooms are pretty standard, hair dryer didn't work, cob web on ceiling. Breakfast was okay, limited choice and no bacon. Okay hotel in a good...

Dear Alexstronach70, Thank you very much for sharing your experience about your stay with us. While I'm pleased to hear you made the most of our great location and overall had a good time exploring the area, I was concerned to learn about maintenance and cleanliness issues in your room. We are working very hard to maintain the hotel to...

Stayed here for 1 night with my partner and son and we were all really impressed with the place!! Booked through booking.com and it was an absolute bargain. Booking.com had not put our child down as staying even though we'd stated his name and age when booking, but this wasn't a problem at all, the receptionist was really friendly and...

Brand new hotel so everything is in really good nick. Rooms are reasonably priced, if slightly on the small side maybe. Free wifi in all rooms and decent views across the city if you get one of the rooms on the higher levels. There are a lot of decent restaurants all within walking distance of the hotel and the Arndale...

This hotel was a really nice surprise; way above expectation. An excellent location not far from some great bars and restaurants made it perfect for a night out. The room was spacious and comfortable, very clean, nicely decorated and, most importantly, absolutely quiet. We didn't hear a peep from outside or next door during our whole stay, even on Saturday...

Stayed here last weekend from Friday to Sunday with my 22 year old daughter, we visited Manchester for some shopping and sightseeing. Our flight was a very early morning flight and we arrived at the hotel at 9.30am hoping to just drop our bags, however the receptionist kindly advised there was a room ready and checked us in there and...

Stayed at the hotel on a Saturday night. We arrived early and were able to check in well ahead of time. The hotel is quite new, all areas were clean and well maintained. Staff all very pleasant and helpful. Room very comfortable and spacious, only downside was no bath. But that's being picky. Good free wifi (ihg club member). There...

This new outlet of holiday inn has basic but comfortable rooms. Different pillows are available depending whether you like harder of softer. The bar is more like an airport lounge than a place you have a cosy drink at the end of your day. Breakfast was no more than okay and for a new to stay I would prefer to...

Clean and modern hotel, with very comfortable beds and a nice bathroom with super powerful shower. Sofa bed for my daughter. Free wifi was fast enough too. Location was great, very close to the Northern Quarter (although use the High Street to get there, the walk there via Shudehill is off-putting!) but still quiet.

Good location, clean and great price with breakfast included. We had a double room with a sofa bed. A bit small and basic but clean. A few mins walk to the shops, restaurants and train station. Would stay again.
