Second time we have stayed here. Hotel is in a great location with regular tram service just a short walking distance away. Nothing fancy but rooms are clean with shower, bathroom, air conditioning/heating, bed and tv, all we needed anyway 😊 no hairdryer in room so advisable to bring your own if needed. Breakfast is available in hotel or you... More

Check in nice and easy as I'd done most of it online. The room was fine, standard budget IBIS stuff. The beds were clean and comfortable. The only thing I hate about the Budget IBIS hotels is the location of the shower and toilet. There's no privacy whatsoever as they open directly out in to the room. Not such an... More

We were attending a show at the Lowry & although "Budget" (as per Hotel title) this was perfect for a "room only" stay--easy access to "The Lowry/Media City" as there's a tram stop right opposite & also a "Frankie & Bennys" for a great breakfast deal (the hotel only has snacks!)--"Budget"-- like it says on the tin--but serves its purpose.

Stayed here for a night recently. I don't think £79 is particularly budget. It's cheaper but I've stayed in premier inns nicer and cheaper. All went smoothly except for some reason, without explanation I wS given a disabled room with grab rails shower seat and wet room. I'm assuming obviously the room want needed for a disabled person but it... More
