Clean, comfortable, centrally located

Posted 17-Apr-2014
Enjoyable 3-night stay. Spacious room, bed, and bathroom. Clean and comfortable. Large new flatscreen TV. The hotel is near everything in the center city as well as public transportation (St. Peter's Square is just around the corner). Many nice restaurants and pubs nearby.

Review of Hotel in Manchester

Posted 16-Apr-2014
Pros: Staff friendly and rooms well decorated.
Cons: Large Stain on carpet outside bathroom could have been cleaned by some method. Change of facecloth - we supplied one of our own and it was taken.
Location: Its a large town with lots of places to visit. Manchester has a Cathedral and lots of Museums and buildings that can be visited.
We stayed in this Hotel in Manchester and went out during the day. In the evening we came back to the hotel and rested for the next day. No problem with noise.

Nice hotel, good value for money except for Wifi

Posted 14-Apr-2014
Pros: Friendly staff, large and spacious rooms, very good location.
Cons: Wifi is expensive. Water pressure in shower isn't great. Hotel lobby/corridor areas feel a little cramped.
Location: City centre hotel, opposite Manchester Art Gallery and very near town hall and metro line. Close to Convention Centre, Gay Village and Chinatown.
Had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel, couple of small minor negatives that the hotel could improve on, in particular the Wifi is free for only the first thirty minutes although BT Wifi is also available.

Place of haven in central Manchester

Posted 13-Apr-2014
Was such a great deal through Expedia compared to budget hotels and larger chains - nice to go somewhere with individuality. Friendly and helpful staff, relaxed and calm atmosphere as you walk through the doors with the hustle of central Manchester left outside. Central location, so close to the convention centre, Oxford road station etc. Food and the ambience of the 24 bar/grill was lush, even breakfast in the morning was a calm experience.

Pleasant stay in a quality hotel

Posted 12-Apr-2014
Pros: High quality hotel, peaceful room, very helpful staff. In particular, Susan on the front desk went the extra mile to help me on the first day of stay.
Cons: The room service menu could do with diversifying. As much as the room itself is value for money breakfast is very over priced.
I haven't got the time to write a review which would do this lovely hotel justice in detail, but in short, a stay at the Arora is what staying away at a hotel should be like - you have a comfortable room with good facilities and are waited on by staff who can't do enough to help you.

Not as glam as on the pictures

Posted 31-Mar-2014
Cons: Pictures should be updated on the website
The hotel d├ęcor looked a bit tired so the pictures should be updated to reflect the true look and feel of the place.

Comfortable hotel close to the centre.

Posted 24-Mar-2014
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: We only went shopping.
We stayed at the Arora on a shopping trip to Manchester. The hotel was lovely, staff were extremely friendly and it was convenient for the Arndale Centre and within walking distance to the train station. The room had been recently refurbished and was extremely comfortable and clean, the bathroom was very well appointed. I would recommend this hotel to anybody visiting Manchester.

Older hotel, perhaps not worth the price

Posted 26-Feb-2014
Hotel was in a very central and convenient location for us, easy walking distance everywhere and parking facilities just next door. The room was small and the bed was tired. The mattress sagged and the pillows were old and worn. That said, the shower was powerful and hot and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I was disappointed with the price I paid for the two day stay though and would probably look elsewhere next time.
