Looking ofr any recommendations for accomodation in Manchester for a weekend in November. There will be 4 adults and 1 baby. ideally near Old Trafford/Salford quays. I've googled and there are plenty available but just wondered if anyone could give a personal recommendation!
Not beside Old Trafford but I'd recommend The Place (Ducie St near Piccadilly).
We stay there 3 or 4 times a year and it's pretty good - have gone as a couple but have taken DD since she was 10w and it's worked well.
Be aware that lots of apts mainly cater to groups/stag/hens and can be really noisy - have always found The Place good from that POV. Also like that it's more like a hotel than other places so there is a proper 24hr reception and security, room service, bar etc.
Unless you are going when Man U are playing at home you can usually negotiate a good deal. Definitely recommend getting a deluxe 2bed apt if there are 4+1 so you have more living space, standard 2 beds can be small.
I went with the kids to manchester last oct and used "staymanchester". Really couldn't fault it. They had various sites. Worth a look as we ended up paying £65 a night for a 2 bed 2 bathroom place that was really good. Then did "staydublin" as it had been such a success!!!
