              good breakfast, excellent location for University, easy to find, clean.

              Squeaky floorboards

              Friendly staff and a nice dining room for breakfast.

              Lovely upgraded room clean with nice bed linens,quiet with good facilities and near restaurants and pubs. Lovely receptionist from Hartlepool.

            • Single
              6.2

              Only a short bus ride away from Manchester Academy... And it was just about the cheapest room going. I'm sure that there are many hotels in Manchester charging £80 a night with no better facilities or such inexpensive parking.

              No cold water in the bath taps... Water pressure not enough to shower, the tiniest room you could ever imagine a double bed fitting in. I know it was a single, but still. Almost claustrophobic.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              the staff member who went the extra mile to ensure we got some breakfast before leaving at three thirty in the morning for our journey to the airport

              there was some work going on and i felt the stairs were a bit dangerous due to the workmen and the wet weather

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Convenience for Mancheser University, ability to park the car until late afternoon on the day after arrival, and a comfortable bed and a good breakfast.

              I wondered about the cleanliness of the bathroom and was not sure whether the floor was dirty or just patterned in that way. ( Room 50)

            • Family with children
              5.0

              the staff were friendly and helpful, for a small hotel help with liggage was available and offered

              the room was in dire need of refurbishment but more importantly was , sorry, filthy. Another problem was the the number of people smoking at the entrance to the hotel, one literally had to fight through a large number of people to get to the entrance, this got worse the later it got. there was room at the rear of the hotel? garage area to accomodate a smoking area, pity this was not used.

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              Good Staff, Nice rooms, Comfy bed, Easy to get too, situated near to local amenities

              Only building work, but that was being done in a tidy manner and with the improement in the hotel to benefit

            • Single
              5.0

              Willowbank was adequate for an overnight stay close to the University. There is work in progress to upgrade which is much needed - the room was very dated and shabby.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              complimentary bucks fizz at breskfast -a nice touch!

              we struggled to find our way back through the corridors and stairs to reception on the 4 times we tried!!

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              Friendly helpful staff.

              Our bedroom was a little cramped and the bathroom had nowhere to hang towells etc., a little tired looking. Tv worked but the channel changer did not.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Room and bathroom both very small but extremely well-appointed and comfortable. Restaurant wine a bit cheap and nasty but food excellent and good value. I had the butternut squash risotto, which is easy to make very dull, but which was delicious. The carpark security was reassuring, though I would rather they just added it onto the room rate then make a separate charge for the car.

              Plastic cups rather than water glasses let the room down, compared with the quality of the rest of the fittings.

            • Family with children
              8.8

              We were able to stay at this hotel with our dog.

              We liked this hotel but unfortunately it did not have a lift although there is a luggage porter.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Loved the hotel, location very good for us comfortable and the staff where all very friendly. Breakfast first class kept us going all day. Rooms very clean and tidy, once in bed we heard nothing untill the morning.

              9.6

              All of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the room was very comfortable and the breakfast excellent. Good secure parking.
