... We had no idea of how much of one until we were walking back upstairs and saw the poster on the wall enlightening us that there was a drag show on stage every Thursday night at 9:00, and Thursday it was!


We enjoyed a great night of drinks and movies and departed the next day with a great deal of plans ahead of us. We were a little bit more prepared for what lied ahead that day as we made our way past the rainbow flags and flagrant signs. We were both taken ...

I'm. So. Tired.

I'm struggling with sleep. I always do when I travel to England but normally I can sleep it off by ruining a day or two. But this time I can't really do that. Being constantly on the move and having to carry a backpack while exhausted is not as easy. Plus Dan has already made me run with my backpack on. What an awful moment! Not to mention my shoelace came undone. So obviously I was going to fall to my death. (Only ...

The Tour kicks off....somewhere.....

Apparently Stage 1 of the Tour kicks off today in York and the riders will see a giant swath of West and North Yorkshire. I have to admit the main focus for us what the preparation for the next day and the all important climb up Holme Moss in Stage 2. I spent the morning recovering from the rigors of the race the previous evening and relaxing. The big event during the day was lunch ...

Stonehenge and Stourhead

... perfect camera perspective. I had seen Stonehenge once before when Sara and I gone to the UK, but Dan appreciated me agreeing to go again. I remembered seeing the initials of Christopher Wren (St. Paul's Cathedral architect), who had lived a few miles away as a youth and was inspired to leave his mark, and maybe also to also design great things. This place does take your breath away, even if you aren't fixed on the mythical aspects of it.

    Won't be Staying Here again

    from

    We stayed here for one night whilst visiting the MEN Arena to watch Lee Evans in November. On arriving at the hotel the bar area & reception looked newly decorated. The rooms were very different though. Our room was tiny with a double bed and didn't look like it had been decorated since the hotel was built. We are no snobs, and as long as a hotel room is clean we are not fussed about luxury, but this room was disgusting, windows wouldn't close properly and the bathroom was just awful. There was a sign on the taps saying "caution water gets hot" The water didn't even get luke warm. I didn't walk in the room bare foot, it was that bad.

    Nice location, shame about the room

    from

    I was pleased to find the hotel so well located. It is minutes walk from Victoria Station, MEN Arena & the main shopping area.

    The bar/reception is fine & the meals are good.

    The bedroom was very poor. There was no real wardrobe & the TV was tiny with no remote control. The shower room was unbelievably small. On a positive side, the bed linen was clean enough & there was plenty of tea & coffee provided. The room overlooked the cathedral so was quiet for a city centre hotel and the view was pleasant.

    Not worth the price at all!

    from

    We went to see a concert in Manchester this past weekend and when we arrived at the hotel, already we had the feeling that it wouldn't be worth the £100 per night we had been charged.

    Superb, welcoming, well located hotel

    from

    I work in Manchester and we often have nights out in the city, which for me means avoiding the half hour journey home. I have two options. I can get the train home at a cost of £5 and be forced into dashing back to the station to catch the last train home around 11:30pm, or I can pop into the Mitre Hotel and get myself a fantastic deal on a comfy bedroom for one night.

    Never again

    from

    This hotel has its good points-lovely building and great location.We left our bags at reception,which wasnt quite as shown on the web-site photos but was ok. Returned later to check-in.person on desk (manager?)was rude,wouldnt listen to our questions.Rooms were awful-asked for two singles next to each other but they were far apart and both very grubby looking (lots of ingrained dirt)with very poor bathroom fittings.Not at all the impression we got from the web site! The window in one room wouldnt shut,door security very poor.Bad attitude from staff when we refused to stay!As two single women,we didnt feel comfortable or safe staying there.

    A WASTE OF MONEY

    from

    I'd already booked this hotel before seeing the reviews on here...I wish I'd cancelled!

    Great location for the arena (we'd booked to see Simon & Garfunkle) and that's about it. The chap on reception when we arrived hardly spoke, no welcoming smile so I knew immediately what to expect and I wasn't wrong...The room cost 70 (no breakfast) and could only be described as worn & shabby. Decor, furniture, the lot. The bathroom had pitted lino on the floor, wonky shower rail and a cheap attachment to the taps that counted as a shower! Water only warm etc. We will never return here again and would advise anyone to avoid it at all costs unless it has a total refurbishment.

    Bad deal

    from

    Ok, where to I start. Ok on the good points. Fantastic location. a couple of minutes from the arena, and opposite the main shopping street.

    Just Awful

    from

    I booked in at the Mitre for one night because of the positive comments here, rather than at the Sacha's or Brittania, which are rather down-at-heel but can usually be booked for less than £40 if you look in the right places. So here goes:

    'Fantastic time- thanx very much the Mitre Hotel'

    from

    i was part of a group of 20 who stayed at the Mitre in February 2002 and we found the staff fantastic and accomodating and so friendly, they couldnt do enough for us, i for one would certainly recommend the hotel, it is also situated in an ideal location near to the main shopping district.

    Great staff

    from

    I stayed at the Mitre recently with 3 friends. The two bedrooms i saw were basic with ensuite bathrooms, the decor in the rooms wasn't fabulous but they were clean. The rest of the hotel was fine & the breakfast(what little i ate of it due to a hangover) seemed fine too. The thing that impressed us more than anything was the staff, they were very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them. So if you're looking for reasonably priced accommodation i would not hesitate to recommend this hotel, i would definately stay there again.
