  • I went into Manchester to St Ann's square to pay my respects and on my return to the station I needed to use the toilet. Not only do I find it a disgrace to pay to use it but the smell was disgusting and the toilets were in a terrible state. I wouldn't expect this from a free toilet let alone one that charges for the privilege. This needs addressing ASAP.
  • The main concourse is now a light and airy place to wait for your train or tram. There are a few facilities here, toilets, a few food counters, coffee shops and an information centre to book tickets and ask questions. The staff are generally helpful and knowledgeable of the local area and transport network.

Where to stay in Manchester

Some of Manchester's finest hotels are located near the city center. Staying there will keep you close to all of the city's main attractions, as well as its main road and rail networks. Manchester's centrally located hotels boast modern rooms, good food, and friendly staff. From there you can easily explore Manchester's famous pubs, rooftop bars, and restaurants. For a more leisurely and quiet experience of the city, venture farther away from the central areas. There you can explore a world of relatively inexpensive boutique hotels and self-catering apartments, especially convenient for visitors using Manchester as a base for exploring northern England and North Wales.
