    Location

    Not up to the usual Best Western standard Mix up with room allocation Breakfast of Saturday was not as good as usual. Arrived on Friday around 7.pm not a friendly welcome and my room was allocated to someone else how checked in after me. As a solo traveller this did not inspire confidence

    The staff do not action you special requests after advising that they will be actioned, e.g i asked for rooms close to each other for my mother birthday. I was told this was fine however when we arrived we were told that the request has not been recorded and would not be able to be actioned. The floor board are loud when walked on which means you will be woken up at 4am. The staff are not accommodating and are abrupt! DO NOT USE THIS HOTEL

    Fabulous

    The breakfast was excellent. The location was good vis a vis bus routes into Central Manchester.

    Our room was on the small side - not too much of a problem as we were only staying one night.
