    Historical Traveler Reviews The White Rose Inn Emporia

    Great place!


    Excellent stay with good service! Would love to come back.

    Great location & value for money


    Me & my boyfriend stayed here for our anniversary in March this year and had a great stay. The location was brilliant, close enough to shops and bars but far enough to be quiet at night. The room was nice and clean and we had a nice view of the canal. Only paid £60 for the room & full english breakfast which i thought was a bargain! I also asked if we could check out a little later and they let us check out at 1pm which was great! The location is great for deansgate locks which is where we had wanted to go. The leisure centre is attached to the building which u can use for free - my boyfriend treated me to a massage there which was excellent! Would definitely stay here again!

    Good location great swimming pool


    I stayed here for one night earlier this month, I visit Manchester regularly and this hotel compares well to the other ones I've stayed in. It's fairly new, right opposite the Science Museum, and very convenient for the city centre and near the bars and restaurants in Castlefields. It's also next to a network of canals with nice walkways to other parts of the city and beyond.

    The hotel decor is fairly bland, but clean and functional. I stayed in a single room which was ok. Best thing is that it has a really excellent swimming pool (no extra charge) and a gym (didn't try the latter).

    Breakfast was ok - prompt efficient and friendly service, but some of my cooked breakfast was a bit underdone.

    I booked this through - first time I'd used this site and got a good rate, particularly as it was hard to get a hotel room in Manchester at the time.

    A Good Mid Priced City Hotel


    I stayed here as I was attending a family wedding with other members of the family. On arrival I was met with a warm smile and very pleasant check-in staff, booking in was speedy and my request for a smoking room was met without fuss; payment is required on arrival.

    The lobby is large and airy with comfy sofas, a bar to the left, breakfast room ahead of you and access to the gym and pool; there is a spacious lift to all floors.

    The rooms are a good size with the usual complimentary amenities including a heardryer, large towel for use at the pool, writing paper, phone etc. The bed was firm with sheets and blankets. The bathroom was large and very clean; the only gripe was that the shower was not very powerful infact the pressure was very poor but there was plenty of hot water on demand. There is no air conditioning but the windows do open. There is also a modem point.

    Breakfast was buffet style with a constant supply of fresh coffee and toast. Plenty of fresh fruit, cereal and yoghurt. The hot food was the usual eggs (fried), bacon, sausage, mushrooms etc.

    There is also a large indoor pool and lots of gym equipment which forms part of the YClub - as a guest you are able to use all facilities.

    Location is very good - it is close to a rail/tram stop, good road access and has a secure car park for which there is a small and modest fee.

    All in all I would stay here again

    Loved the friendly and helpful staff


    A small and very friendly hotel on the edge of the business district of Manchester but close to the main downtown shopping area. Excellent leisure facilities with a full size sports hall, swimming pool, sauna and lots of exercise machines. We would certainly recommend this to any travellers to Manchester

    Good hotel, nice staff, good location


    We stayed for one night and the room was clean and spacious.

    We have stayed here in the past and it is has a good location - 10 min walk to centre but out of the way from the crowds. Opposite Science & Industry Museum.

    The area around the hotel is always quiet as its out of the way from the centre and has free parking and you can use the facilities of of the gym and swimming pool.

    Staff are always friendly and helpful.

    Bar food is excellent value for money and breakfast is buffet style (full english or continental)

    We would recommend this hotel and will be staying again on our next night out in Manchester!!

    Good overnight stay at this hotel


    stayed here overnight in a double room. More than adequate space with a really good sized bathroom. Reception staff were very friendly and eager to help in any way. Other reports questioned the breakfast but we thought it was very good standard hotel fayre. Certainly good value with consideration of the good gym and pool facilities which we also used. Hope they do family rooms so we can all go at a future date.

    Good deal; good value


    We thought the Castlefield was very good value for what we paid. Other accommodation we have had in the UK in this price bracket is nowhere near as good. For GBP65 (via the internet) we got quite a spacious twin room - standard hotel fare - with a good bathroom with tub/shower and an excellent breakfast. There is a large leisure centre, available to guests, next door. Our rate was GBP22 below that quoted going direct to the hotel.

    This is predominantly a business hotel, although it's quite small. It was full when we stayed, which was weeknights in Jan 05. The service was good, although my email requesting early check-in had gone astray. Still, they found us a room fairly speedily.

    The Castlefield is well (but not prettily) located on a reasonably busy road - a brisk 15 minute walk from the city centre; close to some good moderately-priced eateries; and across the road from the Museum of Science and Industry. The rooms have double glazing. The hotel sits next to a canal where canal boats are moored. Granada TV and trams to newly developed dock areas (where the Imperial War Museum and The Lowry arts centre are located) are also an easy walk.

    There is a lot of accommodation in Manchester, but the Castlefield seemed a moderately priced and reasonable quality option to us, given our online deal. The hotel was quoting a higher rate for weekend accommodation when Manchester United was playing at home. I don't know how gladly I would pay more (soccer is not my thing ...).

    Felt at home


    Castlefield offers the convenience of a small hotel with the charm and atmosphere of a B&B. I stayed for three nights in May and felt safe, comfortable, and well fed. Used the pool downstairs and walked everywhere from the hotel. Appreciated the friendly and helpful staff. Good choice for a woman traveling alone.

    Visit to Castlefield Hotel


    I spend an enjoyable weekend at Castlefield Hotel last summer, and intend to do the same this year. It is excellent value for money, the accommodation is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The staff are friendy and helpful, and free use of the excellent leisure facilities are a considerable bonus.

    I found the area of Castlefield very interesting, with the canals and redevelopment making it an attractive venue. The hotel is conveniently situated close to the centre of Manchester. Deansgate Station, a few hundred yards away has frequent train connections to Manchester Airport. I will be spending another weekend there next month.

    One slight word of warning! After having a swim, I left my towel on view in my room. The next day it had been collected by one of the domestic staff, and I had to retreive it from the hotel laundry!

    First step in any journey is leaving home, doesn't normally feel like this though. Felt fine while with family saying farewells but sitting alone in the airport bar is where it really hits you. I guess as social animals with strong family units it is hard to leave and not know when or if you will return to your social group. I'm going to be as honest as possible in these blogs as theres not much point in them unless they are real. The airport bar is where it is hardest ...
