Outstanding

My room was excellent. Comfortable bed. Clear bathroom. Compact room but with almost everything I needed. Rather than a coffee table it would have been good to have a table / workstation I could sit up at to do work. The WiFi didn't always connect...

Nice hotel. Nicely designed, compact, quiet and clean. Very central location. Very comfortable bed. Not so good was being stung for an extra £15 on check in as there was 2 people sharing the double room. Apparently the booking had registered for 1 occupant on their system even though i had entered the details for 2 on booking.com. A common error i was told. This was easy to believe as another traveller was having a heated conversation with the receptionist next to me about the very same issue. No offer made to waive the charge even though the error was with the hotel and booking.com. Even though the hotel was great this type of service leaves a bitter taste in the mouth...

clean , efficient , great value , professional staff all round . Fantastic location , will stay again and recommend to friends and familily.

14.11.2017

Hotel very clean, reception very welcoming and friendly. Room a little compact BUT didn't detract from the overall experience

14.11.2017

Arrived early at the hotel and was checked in straight away. Nice clean tidy room, freindly helpful staff. Will certainly use this hotel again.

14.11.2017

Good service. Friendly staff. excellent location. aiming to return again when in manchester. bravo to all!

14.11.2017

Great hotel in a central location, very friendly staff and stylish decor. The bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in.

14.11.2017

Stayed for one night . Party of 8 people . Great value for money and location was brilliant . 2 mins walk from Christmas markets & 2 mins from Arndale shopping centre. Staff were great and stored our bags as our flight wasn’t until late on day of check out. Would definitely stay again as it was really central to everything.

14.11.2017

Everything is great about this hotel...the location, the staff, the bar, the lounge area and the actual bedroom themselves. The only comment I would have is that the shower water wasn’t hot enough, and I would have liked some shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the bathroom as you find in most hotels, and had to go out to buy some for my 2 x nights stay.

14.11.2017

Excellent city centre stay. Parking was a bit of an issue though. Close to all the city centre amenities and easy access to the velodrome. Our room was remarkably quiet for a city centre hotel but the room did face on to a back street rather than Cross street itself.

14.11.2017

Due to my knee operation I need to apply ice band , they helped me and put my ice band to the refrigararor everyday with friendly and kindness . I was very happy with the personnel . They are so kind . Thank you all again , location was perfect .

14.11.2017

Staff are lovely and welcoming, rooms are spotless, have everything you need. Perfect!

14.11.2017

Fantastic place fantastic staff thank you. Craig and Sue Harlng

14.11.2017

it worked....plain and simple. Good location. Good room. Check-in efficient, etc. Would have been helpful to have had a small desk in the room to work off of

14.11.2017

My room was excellent. Comfortable bed. Clear bathroom. Compact room but with almost everything I needed. Rather than a coffee table it would have been good to have a table / workstation I could sit up at to do work. The WiFi didn't always connect on the first or second attempt but I always go on eventually. I will certainly return next time I'm back in Manchester and will seek out Motel One in other cities I visit.

13.11.2017

Very nice and cosy hotel. Nicely designed rooms as well as the whole reception and bar. Very complete breakfast, friendly staff and central location close to the shopping area. Great value for the price.

13.11.2017

Excellent value

13.11.2017

Motel One never disappoints me, with amazing rooms which are smart, clean, and spacious. The customer service excellence from the staff really makes you feel so welcome and supported throughout your stay. I often stay here for work, so its great to be able to escape from all the stresses of work meetings and relax in style. With such affordable prices, I will definitely continue to stay in this hotel!

13.11.2017

Great visit.Very Helpful Staff

13.11.2017

Nicely appointed rooms and a good continental breakfast. Helpful staff and a very reasonable price. Only disappointment was a booking mix-up over a superior room.

13.11.2017

Excellent location and value

13.11.2017

The ladies taking care of breakfast were fantastic, thank you! The ladies at the reception were very kind and the room was spotless.

13.11.2017

Great hotel, friendly staff and perfect location. This hotel was lovely, great for a business trip and would definitely recommend for business or pleasure.

13.11.2017

Fabulous Hotel in great location! Spotlessly clean...small but perfectly formed! Extremely friendly and helpful Reception Staff...Michael and Annette in particular... Very highly recommended

13.11.2017

Exactly as expected, quick efficient check in, room and bathroom small but do the job, bed comfortable. Value for money and free WiFi Thank you again Motel One!

13.11.2017

Lovely modern feel with comfy bed and generally great facilities. I really enjoyed my stay. A couple of minor things which could be improved up on; I disliked it that the TV turns on and has a German welcome page when you walk past it (or may be when you put your key card in to the slot). There is no option to hold water in the sink (no plug facility) and the window barely opens due to the large wall recess. Finally the bed side lamps are poorly designed making it difficult to find the off/on switch. (The light was on and I was contemplating taking the bulb out before I finally found the switch). Whiskey in the bar is extortionate. How over £9 a shot for a 21 yr Glenfiddich can be justified is beyond me as otherwise the bar prices for bottled drinks were reasonable for a hotel.

13.11.2017

Fantastic. Clean modern and friendly in a perfect central location.

13.11.2017

Excellent central location, speedy no fuss check in. The room was pristine, everything very new and clean. Both the bedroom and bathroom are quite small but adequate for an overnight stay. Bed was very comfortable, lovely stylish décor, great lighting and plentiful amenity within the room for a budget hotel (hanging space, TV, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer, some basic toiletries). Very satisfied with my stay, fantastic value for money and would not hesitate to book again.

12.11.2017

Excellent staff - can’t do enough to make our stay wonderful.

12.11.2017

Great spot. Good service. Might be too small if you have lots of luggage...

12.11.2017

I was really impressed with your hotel having not heard of you before. I have already recommended you to family and friends and will definitely use this chain again.

11.11.2017

Very comfortable stay. Staff were very friendly and could not have done any more. Good choice of restaurants close by. I will most certainly return when next in Manchester.

11.11.2017

Room sizes are a tad small but the cleanliness and decor along with friendly staff make up for it. Highly recommended for business travellers.

11.11.2017

Great value in the heart of Manchester.

11.11.2017

Excellent value for money. Lovely styled hotel and very attentive staff. Great location and quiet at night . Super comfy bed. When was last time you checked into hotel and someone subsequently knocked on your door with cheery smile to make sure everything was ok ? Highly recommended.

11.11.2017

Great rooms and great price . Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating.

10.11.2017

Really nice place with a plush feel in an excellent location. The staff were friendly and very efficient. The rooms do seem small however have everything you may need including a very large comfy bed! They are decorated nicely too. Would definitely stay again and recommend to family and friends

10.11.2017

I enjoyed my stay in your hotel. Bed was comfortable and on the 7th floor it was quiet so I had a good night sleep. Enough variety on the breakfast buffet, croissants were delicious! The only problem was that when I went for breakfast my room was not on the list even if I pay when I checked in, so it was a bit awkward.

08.11.2017

Overall a lovely modern property in the perfect location. I enjoyed my stay very much and this is my second visit to the hotel. Staff are great and, this time, I had time to enjoy the bar and meet the chatty knowledgable staff who had good tips on places to visit in the city. One area that I suggest for improvement is the TV reception as the screen freezes up a lot making it impossible to enjoy, for example, sports programmes. Everything else was perfect and I will certainly return.

08.11.2017

Rooms and location were brilliant. Staff not so good. Cleaners never left toliet roll in the room on Sunday. I requested an early check in which I was told you would get to arrange. Arrived at the hotel at half 12 and asked to check in. 4 times we were told check in isn't allowed until 3 o'clock. Told them about the email I received and reply was who told you that. Had to ask if we could leave our luggage and come back at 3 o'clock. Why we were not just told your rooms won't be ready until 3 o'clock but you can leave your bags here if you would like. Spent 2 nights in the hotel. I am a smoker so was up and down for a smoke a good few times. Not once did any staff member even say hello to me. When we checked out. Again rude staff. Didn't even bother to ask if we had enjoyed our stay. Lovely hotel but some of your staff could do with learning some manners

08.11.2017

Always a very warm welcome and quick check-in. Lower rooms as specified. Not much bad to say apart from our rooms weren't cleaned for the 2nd night. Maybe this is policy? I did leave the DND sign on all day but normally i'd expect them to check if I was in. My friend's room was part cleaned. Nothing major on a 2 night stay. Things i'd like to see...Better beer selection in the bar, Manchester is home to Cloudwater and there are several others in the local area. More selection on the bar snacks too.

08.11.2017

Where to start. Top location the hotel was even better then could have imagined. Yep it's "cosy" but the room was so lovely and the mahosiveTV was tops. Loved The fish tank that came on automatically when you entered the room so relaxing. The bed was divine. The shower bliss. Great to have midday check out too. Will defo be staying again. So central, with great bar. Hands down beat so called 5* star hotels on value and quality. One to visit.

08.11.2017

Its really nice. However, my shower head leaked causing a weak flow. I complained after the first night. The receptionist said I could have another room for the second night or they would try and fix it. She said she understood the problem and would be able to fix it herself if necessary. I did not wish the inconvenience of changing room and agreed to the fix. The shower was not fixed and I was not informed that it did not get done. When I checked out on the second morning and complained the receptionist just said the maintenance man was not available. You have an excellent hotel. But poor service has let you down.

07.11.2017

Check in, room, cleanliness and location superb ! Bar service was non existent unfortunately though. I tried four times to get served and couldn't three times because of no members of staff (I'm in the industry and understand people get called off to do other duties but literally nobody was available to serve and I waited upto ten minutes on each occasion) The other time I was refused a bottle of wine to take to my room after returning late after a sports event to be told to come back at breakfast ?! Now I like a glass of wine but not with my granola.... overall though an excellent stay and I will certainly return.

07.11.2017

Nice stay, good location, the room a bit small.

07.11.2017

Great location. Very comfy bed. Lovely room. Relaxed atmosphere in bar area and lobby. Staff attentive and friendly. Could have done with a bit more storage space in the room to put stuff. Already recommending it to friends and family.

07.11.2017

Stayed for 2 nights and couldn’t have been more impressed. The hotel was perfect, really stylish decor and the room was exactly what we needed. The price was amazing! (Cheapest in manc by far) and the location was literally next to everything! Can not fault my stay at all and would 100% stay again!

07.11.2017

Excellent service from staff, beautiful rooms, great atmosphere in the bar

06.11.2017

Tidy rooms, comfy beds and fantastic staff

14.11.2017

Top Lage, Änderung von Doppelzimmer zu 2 Einzelzimmer wurde dank freiem Zimmer ohne grossen Aufwand erledigt.

08.11.2017

Die Verkleinerung der Zimmer hat in diesem Hotel nun seine Grenze erreicht. Kleiner gemäß Mindestabstandsvorgaben geht nicht mehr. Lüftung im Zimmer 524 hat stark gezogen, Problem wurde nach einem Tag erledigt.
