The boys visited Old Trafford, home of Manchester United and some of the greatest players in history.
... t bother me and I returned the looks with a non condescending smile.
We went on the hunt for pizza which we had eventually found at a discount price from a scary chinese restaurant down the road. Not the smartest decision I have ever made in my life, but after the extensive search we settled. We returned to the bar for a few drink to compliment the pizza and I sent Nic on a mission to the nearest grocer for more drinks for the evening. We could save a ...
... my way around the place with all the familiar items, pictures and smells I finally broke down as I walked into the third bedroom with the old bunk beds we used when we were little. I have been avoiding thinking about my Grandpas passing but there was no avoiding here. I miss him terribly. But his home will hopefully help me get past this odd sleep cycle I have. (As I write this at 2:45am!!!!!!) I am going to show Dan ...

The only downside for them was to suffer through a long tutorial on bike racing tactics, ethics and history according to the Gavin brothers. The main event of the day was the ride up to Holme Moss that evening. He will stay there overnight to organize the bike storage at party ...
... huge number of people come to visit at that time (35,000, we heard), then the place shuts down for awhile, probably to clean up and give the staff a needed break. So our whole trip was basically constructed around the 6:15 am visit we were able to book 3 months before, at Dan's request.
There were over 20 of us from all over the world who finally (seems like they gave us a big window to get there, we could have slept in a few more ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Macdonald Manchester Hotel & Spa
Tolles Hotel, super Lage. Große Zimmer, tolles Bett! Erstklassiges, frisches Frühstück.
Me and 2 of my work colleagues have recently spent 2 nights in this not quite finished, but lovely hotel. We found the hotel without any hitch....I would recommend Google Earth route planner. The car park is a little mystery, but if you use a little geographic noggen you'll find it no bother. I have stayed in Manchester numerous times, but never in a hotel of this standard. We loved the sound system in the bathroom...listening to strictly come dancing on the loo....priceless! Also under sink lighting...WOW ideal for those middle of the night visits. Bedrooms very comfortable, but as many reveiwers have said "no drawers" there is however cubihole shelving in the sliding wardrobe, alternatively shove ya smalls on the floor of the wardrobe, not a problem.
Macdonald only average......
We spent the first weekend in December Christmas shopping in Manchester and stayed at this new Macdonalds hotel.
First impressions were a) they are still building it and b) what an unusual shape. Well the shape is odd because it was the old BT building we were told and yes it wasn't quite finished yet.
For a new flagship hotel it didn't feel quite right or that well thought out which might well have been because it wasn't purpose built. Considering it had only been open a few weeks it felt quite well used.
Pros: Friendly & efficient staff, modern rooms, close to shops and railway station, dinner was good, breakfast was forgetable
cons: Not great location, where's the restaurant?
OK.. Firstly, let's look at what was nice about this hotel..
Until we went for breakfast, this hotel would have rated a superb 5 out of 5. The room is one of the very best I've been in - spotlessly clean, large, well fitted (even an ipod speaker system) and a huge bathroom with both bath and separate shower.
Just returned from a weekend break with my friend at the Manchester Macdonald Hotel on London Road. It was excellent! The doorman Alan was friendly and helpful coming out to assist with our bags up the half dozen steps. We arrived at noon and our room was ready. It was on the third floor, with panoramic views of the city. The room was spotlessly clean, all mod cons including a huge walk-in shower and a full size bath; a wall mounted LCD tv in the bedroom with speakers into the bathroom. The beds are brand new (the hotel has only been open a few weeks). We had a bottle of champagne chilling in an ice bucket as this was an opening offer. As it was lunchtime we asked if the ice bucket could be replenished so we could drink the bubbly later and this was not a problem. The staff were exceptionally friendly and courtious. Only one grouse, there was a total lack of drawer space. There was not one drawer!
Stayed 2 nights here with my daughter and had a lovely time. Located a few minutes walk from Piccadilly station. The rooms are lovely and big and the bathrooms have a huge shower which is brilliant. Beds are king size and extremely comfortable.
This hotel opened on the 1st Oct 2007 we stayed in the hotel on the 4th and 5th with the builders still present. phase two of the hotel will add the spa and pool around the 1st Dec 07, so if your going for the spa wait until Dec 07.
Das Hotel hat am 1. Oktober 2007 aufgemacht und wir waren am 4. und 5. dort, zusammen mit vielen Handwerkern. In der Phase 2 wird das Hotel noch eine Spa und einen Pool bekommen, beides soll am 1. Dezember 2007 aufmachen. Also wenn Sie dort wegen der Spa hingehen, warten Sie bis zum 7. Dezember.
