This hotel was excellent from start to finish. At reception, having already checked in online, we had a slight delay but a perfect time for a coffee. The rooms are functional, a little on the small size but has removed all the tat you usually get for no reason. The room came up to the usual high standard expected of... More

Not a patch on the old hotel. Writing this at 02:34 as cannot get to sleep because of wonky air conditioning, noise outside and hearing every move of the moron in the room next door. I asked for a quiet room. Room small, no storage, cheap and tacky and a wash basin that has no plug. Total rubbish. Will never... More

Having stayed here before on a number of occasions, I was excited to see how it had changed now that it has been re-branded Ibis Styles. It took me a while to work out that the 'style' of this particular hotel is the weather. My first disappointment was the reception - replaced by a very plain table and receptionists using... More

Excellent contemporary hotel. Top notch customer service, very welcoming and easy going/helpful. They even refused a tip! Couldn't fault if I wanted to! We didn't get a room with a view but only there one night so it didn't matter. For mid Man City centre, it was very quiet, loved the metal strips around the blinds blocking out light and... More

We were on the 5th floor. Room decor was lovely, bathroom good . Easy check in and early check in which was a bonus. However, window in room needed replacing/ very cold. And the bar downstairs stopped serving at 10.45pm-even for Hotel guests, which we found astoundingly bad; considering it is a City centre hotel! Breakfast was free but was... More

Overnight stay for a gig at the MEN. Reception area is lovely, airey and clean! That's where the good review ends! Our room was dated and tired. It looked like somebody had broken into it too, as lock was loose and you could see evidence of a forced entry. I'd say in major need of renovation. Unfortunately, this seems to... More

The hotel reception looks nice and new but the rest of the hotel was a dive. The room had previously been broken into and the lock was still broken. The bathroom was dirty, the bedroom walls were shabby and we were woken up by building work that was being carried out in the next room. Horrible horrible place. Expensive price... More

Very nice but small rooms. In the middle of a refurbishment during our stay but we were not affected by it. Nice linens, did not hear any street noise. Great breakfast for an Ibis! Good location for Piccadilly Station and bus travel. Hotel offers a discount for the city garage around back but it is still expensive.

The last leg of my journey was to have been the 2-hour dash over the Pennines from Manchester to Hull courtesy of First Transpennine Trains. The time to have been spent snoozing prior to having a lift home. However, due to the inability of Network Rail to dispel water from the tracks at Stalybridge, I found myself stranded along with...
