Reviewed yesterday NEW

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....

Good hotel room - peaceful and good shower. Check in staff were helpful. Breakfast was busy but not great. A bit like a school canteen. Depends what you're there for. Good price and good sleep. I'd stay again.

I booked late for a Thursday night and got a good deal. Excellent location with reduced parking at the NCP printworks if you pay at the hotel. I was worried about noise, being central, but it was absolutely fine. A bit of a racket when bins were emptied but I'm a light sleeper and was only on the first floor....

I've stayed here a few times now for business. The location is great- beside the Printworks which offers discounted parking for guests staying at the hotel. You do need to get your ticket validated at check out at reception. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. Breakfast has a good self service selection but the hotel doesn't have...

The breakfast is good as well with plenty of choices in cereals, cakes, croissants and traditional English. Parking is close by in NCP car park at a discount rate of £12.50 for...
