Reasons for trip


Perfect for the mature, or solo, traveller. Less than three miles from Manchester Piccadilly railway station, this theological college in a quiet side street is ideal for those wishing to have a peaceful stay, or in need of quiet reflection. The room was comfortably appointed, extremely reasonably priced, tidy and clean. Bed was very comfortable, as were the pillows (unlike a much more expensive place I recently stayed). Shower pressure and temperature adequate, as was clothes storage; washbasin hot tap was very hot! Room was very warm – being a northerner, I’m used to colder so had to turn the radiator off! Continental breakfast was comprehensive – plenty of choice, and the gentleman attending to it was very friendly and helpful.

There is a quad garden in the centre which is very quiet, despite the proximity of a very busy main road, and a chapel, which I did not use.

My partner, who is a wheelchair user, had stayed during the previous week and had been allocated a family/disabled room on the ground floor; he found the helpfulness of the staff excellent. Wifi is via password and worked well for me on the first floor but my partner found it didn’t work so well in his room. However, he was given access to the staff wifi, which was much better.

Not a place for noisy, active children – they would find the quiet and other guests inhibitive, I believe, but excellent for everyone else!
