This 3-star hotel is set on a peaceful waterfront location just outside of the city centre, but only by a mile – so you can jump in a taxi and be in the hustle and bustle within a few minutes. This hotel is all about contemporary comforts, with bright and modern rooms, all boasting luxurious en-suite bathrooms with high pressure showerheads. This is a fantastic choice if you are planning on spending your weekend out and about in Manchester and just want somewhere relaxing to rest your head at the end of the night. The simple rooms feature desks, complimentary WiFi and flat screen TVs – and, as if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also get a complimentary breakfast the morning after. Perfect.
