Location. But it doesn't make up for the other problems.
On arrival we paid in full in cash. I tried to use my laser card for shopping (which my wages had been paid into that morning) it wouldnt work, spoke to my bank and was told the apartment had tried to take the full amount out of my account. Spoke to the most ignorant woman(who could do with a good wash) on reception who showed no empathy whatsoever, who explained that the money was on hold and she would do nothing to put it back(my bank said all it would take was for their bank to authorise it to go back) so I was left with no money for my long awaited trip. To this day 6 days later it has still not gone back to my account. Bills are not being paid and I have no money all because of a stupid hotel. Amenities in apartment didn't work like the shower,lights & tv. Never cleaned or rubbish taken. I never leave bad reviews but made an exeption for this kip. No responses from complaints.
Convenient for shops and transport, however did find the appartment very hot. Staff were friendly and would book again.
We went up to watch the football, it was in a perfect location , clean , and all around nice to stay in , the girl at the reception was also helpfully and friendly .
We liked the apartment as whole. Nice bedroom Good to have a kitchen and Fridge and living area. Good location
Applicance were flakey, Taps coming off both bathroom and sink basin. A disaster waiting to happen. No toliet role, no cleaning agents or towels to use in kittchen after cooking. Drains blocked in bathroom. No hangers in wardrobes. All can be fixeable but could put people off staying
Broken lights Broken radiators Broken loo seat in ensuite Rubbish shower in ensuite Loose floor tiles in ensuite Not enough glasses
Convenient from the railway station. Close to supermarkets. Easy walk to city centre.
Water heater not on so no hot water,when it was turned on it leaked. Lack of grill pan or anything to use in the oven to cook. No toaster. No tin opener. Spa bath couldn't be used as it tripped the electrics out.
Very nice appartment, good facilities.
There was no one at reception when we arrived we had to ring a number to check in. After ringing this number the girl on the phone said there was no one under that name and said 'we had to sort it out ourselves and it was our job to ring up' she was very rude on the phone and in the end we had to ring the website we booked with and figure it out ourselves. A very stressful start to the weekend, it took us 2 hours just to check in.
The first room I was allocated had a power cut; after unpacking so I had to pack everything up again to move to another room. The rooms were very cold when I first arrive and I had to put the heaters on. So for the first hour whilst they warmed up I was freezing. No one explained that the emersion heater needed to be switched on to get hot water which spoilt my timetable for the first evening and resulted in me being late meeting up with friends. No full length mirrors in either room. The water from the taps in the second room was brown from arrival to departure (a health risk !)
It was within walking distance to everything , very central x
Great city views and proximity to Piccadilly train station. Comfortable beds too.
Dirty corridors with sopping wet areas lent an uncared for air. Once inside the apartment though all was comfortable and clean. Bafflingly there was an unplumbed and unconnected washer/dryer in a utility cupboard. Apartment instructions would be a useful addition.
There was no security or any staff at the front desk the whole weekend 1 bath towel between 4, 2 loo rolls between 4 the whole weekend,there were 3 homeless people sitting asleep by the receprion area,will not be staying there again.
Quiet - no noise on a night time! Apartments a decent size for purpose of weekend visit. Size of rooms suited the needs. Kitchen well equipped. Jacuzzi bath and hyrdo-massage shower were a nice touch. Balconies by the lounge area. There was an issue with oven not working in first room, but rang emergency number and a man came out, we were moved rooms without any fuss and very quickly - customer service spot on in this instance!
Electrics tripped a few times for different reasons - hydro shower, oven and lights in kitchen. Lots of codes to remember which i know makes it more secure! No on site parking available, but secure multi storey close by!
Good facilites and accomodation was at a good price.
Badly maintanied. Carpets (particularly in corridors) were poor and stained. Room was fair but many lights didn't work no plug in the bath and the jacuzzi bath feature didn't work at all. If the accomodation was better maintained it would be a good facility.
Location, right by city centre. Stayed here twice in 6 weeks with a group of mates as our football club played away at Man City and Man United football clubs. Easy enough access and transport to both grounds and the nightlife around Manchester. No free parking available, but car park next to hotel was just about affordable...
Quite pricey - approx £200 a night for quite small two bedroom flats. But this is a city centre location, so I suppose you get what you pay for. Also we stayed twice in 6 weeks, and paid the same price each time but one apartment was significantly larger than the other, even though they had the same amount of rooms.
Nice apartment, excellent location and really comfortable bed. Large bath and powerful shower too.
It needed a bit of attention to detail. Nightmare checking in as you need to phone a mobile number for door codes and noone is ever around to help. Internet is really slow, room is lacking a few key utensils and the hot water is intermittent at best (can take 45mins to come on)... Also, jacuzzi didn't work and was told it wouldn't be fixed for some time.
