This pub is located in the Castlefield area of Manchester, opposite the Science & Industry Museum... The Ox dates back to the early 1800s and may not look much from the outside but once you step inside you'll be amazed by modern decor and great food & drinks... This historic pub offers a selection of good real ales on handpumps,...

Popped in for lunch with a colleague. It's a trad little pub, quite sweet. The host was so lovely. I had a burger, colleague had a sandwich; both came with chips. The burger was brilliantly well cooked, served pink and juicy. Sandwich was huge and well stuffed. And the chips were AMAZING. The biggest chips I've ever seen. Crispy on...

Booked with only a week or so to go after searching without success. Originally took only available triple room but was offered our preferred double after a cancellation - and at cheaper price, very honest of them! Large room, a bit dated and rough round the edges but clean and nothing to complain about. Located directly over the bar but...

Our room provided us with a good base for exploring the inner part of Manchester. The room is very simple with an en suite that is almost institutional in character. I got exactly what I paid for, no more, no less.

Went for a few drinks here for business last week and to be honest the pub doesn't look very nice on the outside. However, inside its very nice with decor and nice and comfy. Prices seemed to be quite good too!

Close to Deansgate Station. Arrived and checked in within 5 minutes. Was just a place to sleep after a concert and will use again. A clean comfortable bed is what i wanted and got. A pint before bed and a good lie in before check out. Next time I might sample the breakfast. The evening meals smelled good. Also has...

Room very shabby. Not ecpecting the Midland but somewhere clean and up to date. Pictures nothing like the real thing. We paid in full were not expecting something for nothing. Sorry not up to scratch.

Our room was in the first floor and the music from the bar was so loud you could feel the floor shaking. It's not mentioned in any point during the booking that the bar is open till 1am on weekends (instead of the normal 11pm). There floor has no soundproofing so you could as well try sleeping in the bar....

I was unsure how many stars to remove and settled on 3 as 4 is 'Very good' and I didn't feel that was fitting. The hotel rings you at 9pm to ensure you are still coming and can find it, which is attentive. However upon entering the large room there was a pungent 'drain' smell coming from the bathroom and...

“If you're a single here, stay on the top floor in the single rooms. Walk south to the Potato Wharf and you're surrounded by countless superb restaurants like Ahkbar and The Wharf.”
