    It is boarding house”
    The entrance is in an alley strewn with garbage, people fighting, teens taking drugs and supermarket loading bay noise at 06.00. It is just a room with shared toilets and showers- It is not a hotel. No breakfast as stated, in fact no dining room. No internet except in (apparently) a locked lounge room. Reminds me of 'The Shining' - very empty.

    Absolute toilet of a hotel”
    The first room didn’t have a workable lock. They moved me to a second room, which also didn’t have a workable lock. They moved me to a third room. The curtains fell off the wall. The windows haven’t been cleaned in about 50 years. It backs onto an alleyway which fills with Manchester’s most vocal drunks at about 4am. The shower was on another floor to my room, meaning you have to walk past reception in your towel! But they don’t provide towels. The shower barely works and can’t be attached to the wall. There is no WiFi in the hotel apart from the lounge, where people seem to always be asleep. AVOID THIS HOTEL LIKE THE PLAGUE!

    I arrived at the merchant hotel at 23:10 due to the late arrival of my train. On arrival at the hotel I found the door locked and a message saying after 22:00 ring a number posted on the door. I rang this several times and every time it went straight to answer phone and nobody rang me back. There was no mention of This policy in my booking. With no way of getting in I llet and tried other hotels but with joy. Finally I decided to head of up to the airport for my flight the next morning. I will request a refund from the booking agent for this.

    Grim on the outside - nicer in the bedroom”
    On first impressions, this hotel looks awful from the outside. It gets no better on first entering through the security door - there is no reception, only a hatch on the first floor. The corridors are grim and the carpet is thread bear - it all looks very tired . The bed was very clean but the room was drab (a few coat hangers on the wall on hooks. BUT - I paid the cheapest price for a centrally located hotel so what should we expect for the money. If you only want a clean but very basic place to lay your head for the night in the city centre and if cost is a big factor, then this hotel ticks all of those boxes. If you are expecting any sort of luxury then this hotel is not for you. You get what you pay for.

    Dire”
    I had read the reviews before I booked but thought as I was only staying one night, how bad could it be. It turns out very bad. Everything is/looks run down. The shared bathroom was not on the same level as the bedroom so you need to pass through public Reception hall and head upstairs any time you want to use it. Sign on reception says 'towels £2' (no towels in room). As for Breakfast' please have no positive expectations. Cereal was OK but a 35p carton of juice, a couple of biscuits and a scrunched up 'crepe' in a plastic cover does not a decent breakfast make! The sash window in the room didn't function and was propped open with a block of wood which proved both difficult and dangerous to remove when I wanted to shut the window. The daytime receptionist was pleasant but the evening receptionist was extremely rude, ranting and unhelpful. I was very relieved to check out the next day.

    The worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in.”
    The hotel smelt of weed, the reception was very rood when I tried to complain, then chased me and my friend up to our hotel room, we then had to leave late at night in a panic having no where to go.

    Pretty horrendous.... rooms terrible & bare with sink in corner. Carpets terrible . It was in all honesty the worst place I have ever stayed in the UK. Unable to leave No stars for the rreview and so against wishes have to leave 1 star for each rating . The only plus side is location

    Agoda Are Misleading”
    Agoda are very deceptive in the sense they fail to tell you that the facilities do not include ensuite. You have a shared bathroom and toilet. We would not have booked if this information was provided. A clear case of mis-interpretation of goods/services received!!

    Disappointing ”
    The property is very dated. TV did not work. Staff made no effort to do anything. The breakfast included only means I’d that you get a small box breakfast to carry to your room. They wanted to charge two pounds for towel and soap. The room was very noisy and one could hardly sleep with very loud noises from the street. Not worth at all.

    The hotel door is located at the scary alleyway and the room doesn't include a bathroom (its a shared bathroom with no showers!). The window also had a wood stock to leave it open. The room left me uncomfortable that we had to get another hotel. I say son't book it. Ever!
