I stayed in this hotel with my partner, room was very nice, didn't have much of a view, breakfast variety was ok not great taste wise. Staff was a little unapproachable when I first arrived they was speaking amongst each other and I felt unsure whether to interrupt to try to check in.

Booked in over a period of a couple of weeks and found the location spot on as the Northern Quarter is a couple of minutes walk and the Arndale Centre is close by too. The room I had was comfortable and quiet, overlooking a pedestrianised area and I did not hear much of the other guests in the corridor. Overall...

A* review from me. You would expect a holiday inn hotel to be a budget looking hotel but our room was fantastic and good value for the money. Free breakfast the next day which was amazing. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at this hotel this week, very clean and staff friendly. Rooms were very nice, flat screen tv, tea/coffee and bathroom very well presented. If you want an evening meal at the hotel, you have to go to the Crown Plaza next door, no big deal and great food. Breakfast was very nice, hot and cold choice, all self service....
