Clean bed, furniture tatty, bathroom was not good, plug stuck in the sink so water wouldn't drain and shower curtain would not fix to the wall. Worst is the fire alarm went off 3 times in the night. Nobody told us it was a false alarm. No clean cutlery or plates for breakfast. Nobody apologised at reception when we booked...

Reception staff friendly enough room clean but cold. Stairs rickety ok for one night. Disconcerting that only the receptionist could open my room with the key on the outside. Would not go again in a hurry

Don't do it!!! Don't book. Horrible cheap and nasty place. Breakfast awful. Bar awful and reception least said the better. Bed clean. Had to give it a one as won't go lower. Unless you cannot afford the extra 10/20 for a better hotel I would never ever book this again. We had card payment compromised and it's the only place...

We stayed in a large group recently. I had looked at the previous reports which were less than complimentary, so we approached our stay with very low expectations and were not disappointed. The receptionist upon arrival was very helpful and clear, contrary to other reports, yet the night porter was utterly useless. One person seems to run the hotel reception...

Slighty wacky hotel, but in a superb location convenient to airport. In modern fashion no courtesy bus but decent paid (£5) taxi service. For this rate you must connect to linked taxi service. Ignore links on notices o/s. Go straight to airport info service who will undertake the hassle of getting an answer. After that the service is prompt and...

Stayed a number of times at this hotel. Main draw is it's location...literally built over a "Costa Coffee" branch and M&S Foodhall. Hale has good restaurants and bars and is a great alternative to Manchester city centre...a 15 minute walk takes you to Altrincham Metrolink Station then a 20 min ride to the city centre. Altrincham itself rapidly regaining it's...

Could not get them to answer the phone to confirm booking. On arrival I was confronted by a lazy Asian looking gentleman sitting watching television at the reception, I think that he was miffed at having to talk to me and give me my room key. The carpets were not only threadbare but could have done with a good scrubbing....

Ideal if you want a cheap bed for the night before flying out the following morning from Manchester Airport. Had single use of a twin room for one night for £34, without breakfast. You can catch a train to Hale station (5 minutes away) or catch tram to Altrinham (free travel on a Manchester Seniors card) then a £4.50 cab)...

Low price, low quality hotel tolerable for one night if using it for airport access. Previous reviewers have said it all and if you stay you will understand the comments. Room was freezing on arrival, heating only 'allowed on' after 6pm. However, I was truly concerned that behind the torn, worn filthy curtains was a shabby window with accompanying black...

My young daughter and her boyfriend checked into this hotel last night after landing at an awkward time. Within 20 minutes they had checked out. Threatening groups of men, a madman outside throwing tables and chairs, no proper lock on the door.... they fled terrified to a nearby pub where the landlord there said the hotel brings nothing but trouble...
