Good location close to road network and the centre of Manchester. Friendly staff and good facilities. Parking is available but not clearly sign posted for easy access. I've stayed here a few times and would recommend it.

This hotel is absolutely fine. It's a large hotel so it has that corporate feel. The check-in was fast, the room was clean, and the breakfast was nice. It won't blow your mind, but I can't complain at all and would stay again.
