      Pleasant Stay

      Very warm welcome from all staff. Spacious bedrooms. Well stocked tea and coffee tray. Safe in room. Fridge in room. Bed comfortable. Air con. Pillows too thin or could benefit from having 2 pillows each. Shower temperature too variable - ran very hot or very cold. Breakfast not great value for money.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Bar closed even though Expedia advertised as open. No remote control for TV. No facilities but still took a £20 deposit - without being able to provide a sensible explanation. On checking out, I asked how long it would take to return my deposit and was told “between 5 to 7 working days.” A few seconds to take and potentially 10 days to return. Avoid this hotel. Plenty of better places to stay in Manchester. I won’t return.
