    Good central location Parking on street is free between 8pm and 8am. You can pay by phone so don’t have to get up and load a meter. Rooms are fine and comfy. I was near some crazy loud generator so an open window on a hot night let in a fair bit of noise. I was tired so not a big issue. Both times I paid under £50 for a room. At that price it’s a good stop over location.

    Good budget option close to Manchester Piccadilly”

    I arrived late and left early – so I don't know much about any facilities there might be. But I do know they have a really friendly 24-hour reception and it's just a short walk from/to Manchester Piccadilly station. That combined with a nice old building, a clean room and the very good price works perfect for my. I will come again.

    A decent place for the price”

    Very good central location at a decent price. Breakfast was also good with freshly-made full English breakfast and a buffet with bread, fruit, cereal, etc. On the minus side, the walls are are thin and floors a bit creaky, so you can hear people talking or even walking in the hallway or the neighboring rooms. The rooms were also a bit more worn-down than the pictures had us believe, but not so bad it would have been a serious disappointment.

    Delicious breakfast and good value. Nice places to sit and work quietly downstairs. Nothing too much trouble for staff. Excellent value for money. Despite being Friday night it was calm and restful. Good places for reasonably priced evening meals and picnic food on the doorstep. Buses handy, also close to train and coach stations.

    Staff great, hotel convenient ”

    Staff very helpful and willing to give a little extra to assure that you are having a good stay. No A/C but in Manchester, that usually isn't a problem. 5 min walk to Piccadilly Train Station and buses / trams are close. The only issue I had with hotel, which is a safety issue and I get it, is that lock the doors at 11 pm and you have to ring on intercom, your name and room number. And dodgy looking characters sitting on the steps of the hotel. Also, no guests are allowed with was fine for me as I understand the problems with inviting non guests back to your room.

    The location is unbeatable. Right in the middle between Piccadilly station,coach station and the shopping area, everything's just within few minutes of walk. However, the only window in my room was broken and cannot be opened, even there's a fan the room can get pretty hot during sunny days.

    Location is great, just about 10 min away from Piccadilly Station. But there are about 5 to 6 steps before reaching the main entrance, so a bit uneasy with big luggages. The room is a bit old, but still acceptable for a stay. The staff is also nice.
