Had several nights here this week whilst working in the area. Nice waterfront location, in a slightly quiter area of the quays - borne out by the fact there seemed to be a resident heron on the lock behind the hotel. Breakfast of limited choice (as expected at HIE) but hot, tasty and plenty of it. Place was clean 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.

I think I can safely say that the staff at this hotel are the best ever. What pleasant, friendly people and with a sense of humour too! Breakfast was good. Only one down side the bed was rock hard - I don't mean firm I mean cheap hard. What a pity but everything else was faultless.

Wanted hotel near to The Lowry Theatre - this hotel ideally situated to enable easy stroll to and from the venue. Good overall facilities and excellent value for money and an excellent choice for anyone looking to take advantage of all the events on offer around the Quays.
