I have booked this hotel very last minute as i decided to stay in manchester one more night was very pleased with the price my only wish is i read all the reviews on here.. Corridor leading to our room stunk of weed the room was ok thought to myself its only for one night how bad can it get?? People staying next door started shouting, running in the corridors, slamming doors and swearing around midnight ended up having a fight right outside our room in the morning and police coming and arresting them.. my 14 year old was quite scared.. will definitely not be back!!!

We were booked into the hotel for 2 nights. Only stayed one and even that was a struggle. No window or working lights in the room, camp bed like mattress, damp, no safe fire exit, wardrobe doors falling off, lights hanging off walls, cold showers. You can hear everything from all the corridor and other rooms, even the girl in the next room obviously on the phone saying ‘I can’t believe I’ve paid over £100 for this!’ Absolute scandal they can change for this money, may as well make it the I’m a celeb castle. Photos are very misleading as no photos of the room we were given. Ash tray randomly in our room, when I asked was told they had smoking rooms and we’d been put in one- not ideal for someone with asthma. Oh and that’s without the ridiculous queue to check in! DO NOT STAY HERE, I REPEAT, DO NOT STAY HERE!!

Ridiculously overpriced for the quality of the room and experience. They have a rule that people can only check in at 2pm on the dot and this led to a huge queue, meaning I had to stand in line for two hours to check in. This was also true for elderly and disabled customers who were given no alternative means of checking in or support. The staff were quite rude and apparently unbothered by the delays. They also struggled to communicate and to understand customers' comments and questions. There were also too few staff available, with only two computers and two staff who also had to deal with the numerous customer complaints, often leaving one member of staff actually checking people in. The room itself was reasonably well kitted out, although the shower head was broken, leaning it towards the wall and the bath drainage was poor, leading to standing water. There was no perceivable heating and certainly no way to adjust the temperature, meaning the room was freezing cold. The only plus point of this hotel was its location, as it is very central and allowed easy access to much of the city. However this was not enough to make up for the stress associated with the rest of the stay and the premium cost of the room for such poor service. I

Starting with check in, my experience was bad, staff was rude and clues. Room was in an acceptable condition. Old and sticky carpet, so horrible to walk on. Shower didn't work at all. No sockets beside the bed. Telephone line dead, couldn't even request anything from room. The most hilarious thing was that if you need an iron and iron board you needd to take your clothes to iron in the lobby, which is surrounded by drunken people. Honestly this was the worst experience in my entire life. I would never be back and also would never suggest it to anyone.

Room Tip: Try to avoid this place even though it sounds central and affordable. It's a trap.

Where to begin really, so I booked what I thought was a 3 star establishment, on arrival the place looked like it was lost in time, once entering the building the challenge begins! to what I can only describe as i felt like I was playing the squid games, I waited patiently in line for over an hour for a key to our cell, after entering room 501 the games start, you're faced with a large curtain which Reveals a chair and a brick wall, Me and my friend took it in turns to sit in the chair, close the curtain and simulate what life would be like in solitary confinement, while the other friend had to lay on the concrete slab they call a bed, after punishment we left the gloomy dark cell and proceeded up the uneven corridor stoping to admire the antique wardrobes randomly placed through the building heading swiftly towards the exist, we both decided we needed to get seriously beved to take the pain away. Please please don't make the same mistake and book somewhere else, I still haven't recovered mentally and don't think I ever will.
