Stayed here to go to Manchester Opera House to see premier of Bat out of Hell the musical. Fantastic hotel and friendly relaxed staff. Not at all pretentious but extremely professional and meticulously run.

Reading some of the reviews and I don't understand why we couldn't fault our stay. We stayed here for 2 nights and the rooms were clean, spacious rooms, comfortable bed and a huge tv. They also provide a very nice breakfast. Thank you to all the staff we had a lovely stay here and we will definitely be back in...

Currently staying here and everything looked okay on initial inspection but then I realised there was no shower gel and the tissue hadn't been replenished which was somewhat forgivable but what unforgivable was the very long strand of hair on the towel in the bathroom - gross. I tried contacting housekeeping but the phones were seemingly unmanned as no one...

After the 3rd fire alarm in 48 hours I can safely say we will never stay here again. The hotel is clean but road is noisy and the room is not set up for working at a desk which for a business trip is unhelpful. Off to bed now but no doubt the fire alarm will wake us all up...

Unsure what the main point of this hotel is. The rooms are nice, the lobby smells, the breakfast is very poor. If all you want is a nice room then perfect anything g else then go to another place to stay

I have stayed at the AC many times. This was the first time since Aug 2016. Some of the staff have changed which is normal and all are very friendly and welcoming. The new menu is very good with a far better choice. One or two things happened which did not happen last year when I was there for 4/5...

I travel regularly with business and I can say this is the worst hotel in the salford/trafford park area in my opinion. On check in I was told that my room was not paid for and had to be paid by myself, fair enough this sometimes happens but bthe staff were so rude about it! The bar area is fine...

Ordinary, poor 3 star trading on proximity to Old Trafford. Avoid if possible on match days it's a rip off. Charged £200 per night . They left one pair of slippers.
