We spent the night here using points. The room was ultra-modern and very nice. The lobby was very loud due to live music in the bar, a wee bit too loud. The Metrolink station is across the street which gets you into downtown Manchester pretty quickly. Overall no real complaints here.

Cannot fault the hotel and the staff were very pleasant and very helpful. Rooms are lovely and clean and our room was extremely quiet. Breakfast was very good. Would have no qualms about staying here again.

We stayed here for two nights having stayed here before a few times. The room was excellent. Very clean and modern. The bar is great and it serves an excellent range of cocktails with a barman who knows exactly what he is doing, The only downside was the check in experience. We were totally ignored by the lady on check...

Was good spending the weekend at your hotel . The breakfast was really delicious.The location of the hotel is great which close to the Old Trafford and the Lowry outlet shopping centre it's just around 10 min walk to the resturants around you such as Nando's and Chiqitus and many more.
