Comfortable stay in a large room
Convenient location for Piccadilly station and Manchester Conference Centre. Staff helpful and friendly. I stayed in a Classic Double Room (King). Decor dated but it was large and comfortable. The large room safe and iron and ironing board were welcome. Bathroom was a good size with separate bath and shower. Good breakfast buffet. I would stay here again.
