Arrived early, but Carl on reception gave us our key. The room whilst a tiny bit shabby was very clean with nice pure white bedding and towels. There was a large modern t.v. on the wall and a large supply of tea and coffee. The breakfast was an English breakfast with cereals, pastries, toast, bacon ...
During the Industrial Revolution, Manchester was a churning crucible of enterprise, innovation and radical change. It resounded to the sound of steam-driven spinning machines and was also home to forward-thinking publications like the Manchester Guardian. Today, Manchester is still on the cultural map but for different reasons. The club and music scenes are what attract many visitors nowadays, but the city's great industrial heritage is still embodied in any of its imposing buildings. There are many world-class museums and art galleries for visitors to enjoy and Manchester has a bright, cosmopolitan air about it, and is still brimming with energy and enterprise. Stay at an affordable Manchester two-star hotel to enjoy this great city at its best.
As money flowed into Manchester during the Industrial Revolution, much of it eventually found its way into municipal building projects. The situation that the poor who drove the wheels of industry found themselves in began a movement for a more equable and fair distribution of wealth and newspapers like the Guardian were founded, which is still going strong almost two centuries later. The slum clearances that took place during the 1950s and the creation of smokeless zones helped transform Manchester into the modern metropolis it is today. From any Manchester two-star hotel you can see much of the industrial heritage in the preserved and restored cotton mills and warehouses, and the docklands area is particularly interesting in this respect.
If you're agonising over a suitable destination to take the family to for your next break, try Manchester. Staying at a Manchester two-star hotel is fun and affordable, leaving you plenty of funds for exploring the city and beyond. The kids will enjoy taking a ride on the trams in the city centre, and you can find brilliant attractions all over the place. For example, the Imperial War Museum of the North is in the Manchester regenerated quays district. It's full of interactive exhibits and shows documentary films examining the impact of war on local people. There are also museums and art galleries, and some good theatres too, not to mention the buzzing nightlife.
If you want to explore the industrial heritage in more depth from your Manchester two-star hotel, in a fun and enjoyable way, try visiting the Museum of Science and Industry. Here you'll discover displays on the city's textile and engineering industries, with live demos of weaving machines in action and working steam engines. The museum in many ways epitomises what Manchester is all about, and a walk along to the Manchester Ship Canal will bring the city's heritage into sharp context. This was the epicentre of the mighty Industrial Revolution in England, and what it achieved can still be seen all around us. Manchester with its canals and museums, mills and factories, has a proud heritage and is still today a fascinating city to visit, and a comfortable two-star hotel in Manchester such as the Trafford Hall Hotel will provide all the facilities you need.
