    The hotel is so quiet, the staff is accommodating. Booked a double room with a private safe, a sofa bed and a study table. Public parking nearby was provided. We truly enjoyed the property and will definitely visit place next time.

    Advertising proud to be involved with the Olympics, but had no information regarding the Olympics. When we asked about shuttle bus to Old Trafford to see football quarter final they said they had not been given any info regarding transport etc to the Olympic venues. Very disappointing. Definitely at odds with their advertising.

    I was staying in Manchester for a sporting event, I drove form Newcastle after work andhad to leave very early the next morning to get back for work and the hotel was very obliging in preparing a picnic breakfast for me. Would certainly recommend the hotel and extrememly helpful staff.

    Once located the Hotel was fine

    Very poorly signposted, No clear street / Road nameplates, hidden behind the Crown Plaza, I had to ask at the Crown Plaza where the holiday inn was ? not a good advert ?

    Great

    The staff were very helpful, the rooms were very clean and tidy,

    Your map stated it was next to the m e n arena, this is not the case it is about 3/4 mile away and everyone we spoke to had difficulty finding it. I would have helped if there was a sign at the end of the road. I think the kettle is in the wrong place...you have to put your arm over the kettle to get it off connection and there is a possibility of burning your arm. I think maybe the bar area could have been a bit more comfy other than that this is a great hotel.

    Perfect

    I stayed with my 10 year old daughter so we could shop/ visit museums ect without having to rush, We got off the train at Victoria and initally tried to find hotel with writen instructions and got lost, decided to get a cab who told us the directions and its only 3 minute walk on foot and found easily! Check in swift, professionally done. Lift to our room on 5th floor my daughter loved (its quick!!) Our twin room was spotlessly clean, fantastic comfy beds, choice of soft/firm pillows, bathroom spotlessly clean, modern and the power shower just fantastic and with plenty of room! Has air/con cool/warm easily controlled! Our room was 501 and near the lift, so was concerned we may be disturbed during the night but we never heard a thing!(our stay was on a Mon eve tho this might be different on a weekend??) Breakfast was good, its self service but it was quiet when we breakfasted, I can imagine when its busy it could be a problem! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, staff great about holding our bags after check out. I am going to book again when hubby and me are coming to Manchester in April to watch New Order!! Also great value for money!!

    Disappointed with our view from our room- a knackered old car park or something but thats not the hotels fault!

    Very good

    Convenient for shops/Printworks. Very short walk to the Band in the Wall venue where we attended a gig. Brand new hotel so everything very clean and comfortable.

    Breakfast was poor quality - no bacon, sausages over cooked and croissant was rock hard! However, for the price, it was still good value overall.

    Location

    The bed was tiny, 3/4 not double and my partner is 6ft5! The maid burst in at 8.55am to clean the room without knocking, we paid cash for the room yet they said they wanted a debit card as security in case we had drinks etc but was assured no money would be taken.... However when we chked our account it had been debited!! They breakfast was awful and cold and the bar was greatly over priced... For 2 pints of lager and an orange cordial it cos £18!! However we did not have to pay this as a sorry from the hotel. Will not stay again
