                  The carpark had plenty of spaces and the room was spacious

                  The hotel staff had shocking interpersonal skills and the the atmosphere around reception was not good.

                  Fantastic hotel which exceeded expectations!! Plenty of facilities including Indian restaurant, Nightclub and Spa.

                • Family with children
                  3.8

                  The room we booked into was too small, there were finger prints on the wall and cobwebs in corners. We asked for an upgrade which we had to pay for , the upgrade room was bigger but stank of cigarette smoke we cplained & the too Was sprayed but the smoke smell still came through. The room was noisy. T I hose this hotel because of the pool & the gym, but my children were limited in times they were allowed in & we had to pay on top of the extra up grade. We had run out of money & therefore did not swim, all in all the decor was shabby & in need of up grade. Shame . Could be really nice. We had a diss appointing birthday weekend.

                  Good location for access to city or pleasant trip into Didsbury. Generous parking. Great facility to leave luggage in cloakroom to enable easy travel on public transport. Helpful staff.

                  Poor system for ID of lost property - property not labelled with details of when and where found. Housekeeping for lost property only open 9 - 5.

                  Nr to Man Airport

                  Overpriced appalling food served in cavery. Facilities eg lifts old and inadequate. Thankfulluy did not have a breakfast there as we perceived overpriced. Did not expect coach trips to take over hotel no space in bar to use wi fi facilities. Would not recommend it.

                • Group of friends
                  6.6

                  the grounds of the hotel are really nice and the hotel has lots of facilities to use.

                  can be noisy for other guests when wedding receoptions are heldand others guests have to be up early for transfers to airport.

                  The Location was great!

                  The room smells, there was hair in the bath and it wasn't clean at all. It tooke me about an hour trying to contact the reception to explain that I nees to take a shower and the bathroom needs cleaning!!

                • Family with children
                  5.4

                  It was convenient for the purpose of my visit to Manchester.

                  The rooms were not particularly clean. The pillow cases were'nt changed, just turned inside out. The staircases and corridors did'nt smell very nice.

                • Group of friends
                  4.2

                  Nothing

                  The hotel is very over priced for what you get. In my opinion it is not a 3 star hotel and it needs a total re vamp. A very large percentage of the staff speak only very basic english and communication with them is difficult.

                • Single
                  3.8

                  I was most unhappy, that, having booked a double room on line I was told on arrival that there were no double rooms available and was given a twin room. In my opinion this is miss selling! The staff were at best disinterested, and at worst rude and the breakfast was very poor value for money.

                • Single
                  7.0

                  Good breakfast buffet. Neat toilet and complete toiletries

                  lack of wireless internet facility in the rooms. Room is small for double.

                • Family with children
                  5.4

                  Price though I would not stay there again

                  The breakfast was terrible and the room was just on the edge of being O.K. This hotel was a cheap affair.

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  Real good value and we use the hotel every time we fly out of Manchester.
