Great location on the Salford Quays as there is so much within a short walking distance including Media City. The rooms were very clean, and it was nice to have a free breakfast in a hotel! The staff was friendly.

(£3 per day). However, we were able to access our room immediately which was a great bonus. The room and facilities were as expected and...

It is like a better Travelodge or Premier Inn,because it has it's own dining area for a free breakfast and also a bar area.If you are going to Salford Quays it's ideally placed. There is a metro tram close by for getting in to city centre.
