We came here on a mystery trip with National coach holidays and only paid £40 so for this price this hotel was excellent. Staff were very friendly rooms were quite nice and food was excellent. For what we paid it was an amazing deal and a nice place to stay.

We arrived at the hotel at 2:20pm to Check in. The...

The executive double room we stayed in is in desperate need of renovation(room 470) The room stunk of stale cigarettes which was very off putting. Although having said that, the bed was very comfy and the self service breakfast was decent. It was not worth the money we paid £146.00 for 1 night inc breakfast for 2 and would not...

Just returned from a 5 day stay over Christmas at this Hotel. Concerned at reading reviews before travel so pleasantly surprised. Frist impression at Reception - Good. Met by a cheerful lady (Julie?) who quickly and efficiently told us our Room number and gave us keys and Hotel details. She then gave clear directions with a smile. The room was...

Butlins but a hotel. Stayed in worse but stayed in better. Full of kids running around all over. Ate here the first night not the second. Didsbury down the road has some amazing bars , so worth the 15 minute walk. Good for a base to explore the area. Don't expect too much.
