“Cracking Little Inn”
It sits in the middle of the Northern Quarter, so there's a fair bit of noise from revellers and traffic, however that suited me. The pub downstairs was fairly typical, not expensive and had a few different ales on as well as the usual stuff. The twin room I had was perfectly serviceable, wardrobe and drawers, tea & coffee, and was obviously cleaned to a high standard. It was a shared shower room which was also very clean and, for a hotel, had a decent new looking shower unit. I checked in in the afternoon, and was shown how to access the rooms via the beer garden after hours. On the breakfast bar there was a couple of different cereal types, yoghurts (chilled in ice!), fresh orange and an urn to make tea or coffee. I opted for a cooked breakfast which was bacon, sausage, egg, mushrooms, toast, beans, grilled tomato, and black pudding, and it was brilliant! Cooked well and seemingly decent ingredients. Whilst I was sat there I saw a couple of European travellers have ham and eggs, and another guest had a vegetarian fry up, so they seem to be flexible in their offering. I stayed on the Manchester derby day so was lucky to get a room, which is understandable considering its central location and its value for money. I had low expectations but I'm pleased to say I was wrong. When I come back to Manchester I'd definitely stay here again.-- James
I stayed at the Crown and Anchor whilst visiting Manchester.Arriving by train the B&B was a leisurely 10 minute walk from Piccadilly Station. The B&B is Ideally situated near many shops and the City Centre is a few minutes walk away. I had a full english for breakfast which was very good. I could help myself to cereal,yoghurt,tea coffee and juice while i waited for my breakfast. They do a midday meal and across the road is their sister establishment that serves evening meals with a 20% discount for guests.-- Pat
“Would stay again”
Room and shared bathroom very clean. Our room was a little small but had everything we needed. Nice breakfast cooked to order. friendly staff. Large outside seating area to back of pub was unexpected. Good location, just a short walk from Manchester Piccadilly. I would stay again.-- Tracey
“CHEAP BUT FANTASTIC”
If want a cheap hotel 10 minutes from the Manchester Piccadily railway station, then this is it. The room was basic but had a tv, comfortable bed and blackout curtains. There is a shared bathroom but it is very clean. I cannot fault the hot freshly cooked breakfast - egg, sausage, bacon, baked beans, hash brown, mushrooms and toast. There are cearels, yougart, jam, plenty of tea and coffee. had previously stayed in a hotel in Chigwell, which cost me £95 a night and the breakfast was luke warm and horrible. Very friendly.-- Lesley
