We stayed at this hotel for three nights in the week before Christmas. The Salford location is convenient, not in downtown but with very easy access via MetroLink (either MediaCityUK or Eccles line will do). We arrived by train at the Piccadilly and we switched to the MetroLink tram at the station. You may find buying a family tram pass...

I stay in this hotel quite regularly for business as it is close to my client and reasonably priced. The reception staff are always pleasant and helpful, the rooms are smallish, but always clean and the beds comfortable. The coffee machine is a bonus but the irons provided dont always work. The breakfast (included in my corporate rate) is good...
