Stayed for a week during a cold wet April on business.
The gym is brilliant, superb facility, full service, clean, great weights area, super pool, brilliant classes (own spinning suite), and if you want to stay away and exercise this place has to be on the list....
Rooms are average, ample size, but rather dark for working, and comfy beds. Apparently some rooms are shower only (mine was a decent rain shower over a bath)....
Food takes a while to arrive on room service (c. 45 to 50 mins on the 2 occasions I ordered), and when it does you wish you'd walked to the Nandos (3-5mins across the car park).
No real fruit / healthy option at breakfast (good fry up tho for a weekend in Manchester).
Noise from the motorway with the window open was disturbing to sleep (although I just put ear plugs in)...
Caution ... they do not provide an alarm clock in the rooms... the shower gel and hand gel is the stuff from the gym (the girls I was working away with were not happy about this).
We negotiated a rate of £65 a night, and for that I have to say, great gym, good to have Starbucks on-site, full service hotel, not falling apart, worth every penny ....More
