Guest reviews

  • Group of friends

    it was in the right place for what we all wanted,very clean quite pleasent staff.

  • Older travelers

    We were going to an event at Old Trafford so the HI Express - Salford Quays was ideally located for the short walk to Old Trafford (10 mins). It was also easily accessible to get the metro into Manchester.

  • Older travelers

    The location was ideal for our purpose ie. close to Old Trafford, Lowry Centre and Mall. Parking space excellent, rooms small but op.k.

    The breakfast service was abysmal. Both mornings there was a lack of utensils & plates. Sunday morning was the worse: no utensils no seats, guests were eating standing up. Cooked food was not very appetising, I suggest either drop the breakfast or improve choice of cooked fare. This put a dark note on the stay.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel is modern, clean, well furnished and comfortable and ideally located for our visits to Manchester, which is a few minutes away by tram.

    The breakfast was not quite as good as on previous visits.

  • Older travelers

    We liked the close proximity of the hotel to the Lowry and Imperial War Museum. It seemed to us to be the closest hotel for these places of interest.Also the electric tram stop is just 200 metres away and provides a peaceful journey into the centre of Manchester. Cost 2.20p return.

  • Older travelers

    Good location with easy public transport to city centre. Room comfortable and quiet

  • Family with children

    We found the staff friendly and helpful. Atmosphere welcoming and warm.

    Breakfast area too cramped and small for amount of guests staying.

  • Family with children

    location was perfect for old trafford

    the massive increase in room costs because a match was on

  • Couple

    The location was brilliant. The hotel was what we expected but unfortunately nothing more.

    The staff did not seem very professional - during checking in and out the reception desk was extremely busy with not enough people to assist.The buffet breakfast was a nightmare - again the dining room was busy, the food and cutlery weren't being restocked frequently enough, and the tables weren't cleared.

  • Older travelers

    My husband is disabled and it was good that he could park his car at the hotel for free. As we were going to our son's graduation at the Lowrey Theatre it meant that we could leave the car in the carpark and walk to our destination. The staff at the hotel were extremely courteous and helpful.

    The only thing that comes to mind is that there was not an electrical socket beside the hairdryer - a lot of women these days have straighteners and the only socket in the room was nowhere near the mirror.

  • Family with children

    Location was ideal for us, directions from the website were perfect. Easy to get into the city & back again on the tram. Staff were really helpful.

    Breakfast was a bit of a nightmare - too many people, not enough tables, plates, cutlery or food

  • Older travelers

    Perfect location - short walk to The Lowry, BBC and Imperial War Museum and next to the Watersports Centre. Lovely terrace on the quayside, nice view over the quays from our very comfy room.. Stay made more relaxing by having approachable, friendly staff although we didn't need to bother them too much as there was also lots of useful information everywhere about facilities and times.

    It was quiet when we stayed but the walls are paper thin so I can imagine when there's something on at Old Trafford or a conference it would get noisy. Also - just a minor niggle this - but there was only one socket for the kettle at floor level. Not such a good idea to put the kettle on the floor to use it.

  • Group of friends

    the bedroom was very spacious and comfy

    i didnt like the fact that when i booked in we was given a room which was already occupied by a couple, who i must say was half naked when we walked in on her and had to say several sorries! we then went back down and asked for a room with a view over the water and was given a room looking over towards the football stadium. The breakfast was horrible on the saturday the eggs were just not right although it was better on the sunday.

  • Older travelers

    Beautiful location. Rooms clean and tidy. Staff friendly and efficient. Breakfast included made it better value than several rival hotel chains.

    No bacon for breakfast. There was scrambled egg but it kept running out and took ages to be replaced and then it was a bit rubbery as though it had been waiting for ages.

  • Group of friends

    Great quiet location! Nice breakfast selection and the hotel staff was very helpful
