    Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Manchester Ancoats

    Hmm Prefer the Premier Travel Inn

    from

    We checked in on the 21st May 2006 for 1 night as we were going to see Take That.

    The first impression is bleak! There were broken glasses on the floor and a pair of dirty knickers thrown out of the window.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful with all our needs.

    The rooms were what you'd expect from a city hotel but the curtains were dirty and needed a clean. Also the duvet cover had many stains on them.

    A tip is to take a towel with you as you only get 1 large towel and two very small towels.

    I found the location quite rough and there wasn't much around. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the Arndale centre and i wouldn't like to walk back at night as it's quite dodgy!

    Overall i'd choose to stay at a Premier Travel Lodge nextime.

    Excellent value

    from

    have stayed here twice in two months. An absolute gem. Comfortable and clean rooms. Excellent value and the bar doesn't shut!

    Fantastic value

    from

    This hotel really was fantastic value- we got a room on the travelodge website on their supersaver deal for only 10 a night. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the room was the standard comfortable travelodge room. Wasn't quite convinced of the neighbourhood,as one of the side streets seemed a bit dodgy, but it is the middle of a large city and otherwise felt really safe, especially as the lifts needed a key card to be operated.

    What a lovely surprise!

    from

    Driving up through Manchester to Ancoats from the South and watching the modern office blocks give way to derelict buildings wasn't exactly inspiring. We couldn't find the car park from the directions on the website (which are definitely wrong!) and were starting to worry about how safe it would be to leave it overnight anyway!

    From the outside as you drive past, the Travelodge looks pretty grim. Once we had eventually found a car park (better to drive past with Travelodge on the left until you find a Car Park sign directing you left), we set off up some grotty back streets past a couple of sex shops to get to the hotel.

    We were checked in efficiently and paid 45 GBP for one night. I was expecting the worst when I opened the door to the room, but was shocked to find a newly refurbished, clean and reasonably spacious bedroom and shower room. No bad smells, no stains, no fag burns. The bed was a little saggy and soft, but that was my only complaint.

    The location is great for getting into the centre for shopping. It's also almost next door to the Frog and Bucket comedy club and about 10-15 mins walk from the MEN arena (our reason for chosing it).

    There is a bar/eating area and vending machines available (although try the Crown and Kettle (?) over the road for a slightly more pubby atmosphere). You also need your key card to use the lifts and get in after 11, so it's pretty secure.

    I've never rated anything on here as excellent before but for a budget stopover, it was better than some much more expensive hotels that I've stayed in.

    Well done to the Travelodge!

    Great Stay

    from

    We stayed at the Travelodge Manchester Ancoats for 2 nights recently and the place is just what we wanted. The rooms are spacious and very clean and the staff were very helpful. This was a bargain as we only paid 10 for the room per night.

    The area around the hotel is a bit quiet with no shops or pubs but the hotel is within walking distance of Piccadilly Station and is about a ten minute walk to the Arndale Centre and the Printworks which is great for a night out.

    We would definately stay here again.

    What a bargain.

    from

    Great budget hotel near the city centre.

    Rooms clean, nice bar and very friendly and helful staff. Highly recommended.

    Perfectly fine and clean

    from

    We only paid 26 per room per night which was very reasonable. The rooms were standard, clean and perfectly fine. Same as you would expect from any budget chain hotel really. The only thing which I found a bit odd was that they only did rooms with one king size bed or a Family room with King Size and pull out beds. Its strange to not have the twin bed option.

    The location is fairly central, though if you value location over budget there are numerous more central hotels. It takes maybe 5-10 minutes to walk into the middle of town. The side streets you walk down to get to the hotel are a little dark and undeveloped but if there is two or more of you you should feel relatively safe.

    For the internet price I got these rooms for I would highly recommend this hotel. At the standard 46 rate though I would probably opt for the Travel Inn over Travelodge.

    Great for the weekend

    from

    excellent budget hotel, literally a five minute walk from picadilly...good food and even a small bar which opened late....great for football weekends and for a night on the town.

    Top marks hotel

    from

    This Travelodge is nicely located in the centre of Manchester and just a short walk away from the nearest Carpark and all the shops.

    The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and advised me on good restaurants. They also helped me out with providing some ice for my ankle which was injured the weekend I stayed.

    Top marks go to Travelodge Great Ancoats Manchester.

    What you'd expect from a Travelodge

    from

    The scene...3 double rooms requested - and prepaid for via the website.

    They normally start at 26 when there is a special offer, but worth 65-80 in my opinon (for Manchester). (Due to an I.T. error actually got 3 rooms for 8.67 each - nice one!)

    Seems to be a newly refurbished travelodge - although the locksmith didn't do a great job - in my first room - you could give the room door a shove and hey presto, it was open (no keycard required) - complained to reception and they moved me (they didn't fix that door and put someone else in the room) - also this happened to someone else in a different room -- so watch out!

    Hotel bar is open past 2am which is a plus, and the place clean and modern (inside), thick windows so you can't here the noise etc..

    Would stay here again if looking for cheap rooms - and walking distance (10 minutes from the very centre of manchester)

    Day 8. After a morning spent fitting a cupboard door, with some difficulty, we drove back the lovely Spa town,Buxton. We called at the "Druids" to catch up on the news, water the plants and tap into the wifi. A trip to the supermarket was needed to stock up on supplies for the weekend. Upon our return to Gradbach, we met Paul, just back from a sailing expedition on the Norfolk Broads. Catering dept. set ...
