Just a shot trip!
I just needed a place to stay as I had an early flight out of Manchester airport the next day. Check-in was easy... everyone was friendly. Was within walking distance to the centre of town. Free parking was a bonus!
Ivory, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
Not suitable for business travellers
The website says free wifi but it's not available in the rooms. The bathroom stank of sweat, it was too hard to even use it. For the price, there was not even a water glass in the room.
CHITRA, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
It was good value, however I did not sleep well due to a lot of noise in the room. Part of it was just the luck of who your roommates are, but the bunk bed was very noisy and didn’t help.

Stayed one night, checkin was all okay. Bathroom cleaning was not good. Water pressure too low to flush toilet
