  • The toilets are disgraceful. For 30p, you would expect a clean and well maintained facility, but it stinks and fittings are broken. Also, on my last visit, I almost missed my train when they changed platform information with 5 minutes to go and I was on the wrong platform. Thought it was quiet!!😠😠
  • I visited this station on Friday 11th November - to use the ladies toilets is 30p ( same price as Euston) - now for this you would expect clean, immaculate toilets especially since the restoration work. However this is not the case - they were disgusting - the smell coming from the toilets was terrible. Returning to Manchester yesterday unfortunately we needed to use the facilities again - nothing had changed infact it was worse!
  • Absolutely disgusted with the service today we got a return ticket and they failed to tell us they where off peak so when we where making our journey back they would not let us through even though we told them we had to get home because we have kids waiting. they where extremely rude when we asked for a refund because they failed to tell us about it being off peak and told us to go to the ticket office. as soon as we got there they tried charging us another £14 for the tickets and we again tried to explain what had happened in which he cut us of and threw the tickets back at us and told us to come back at 6 o'clock. we ended up having to beg him to sell us the tickets so we could get home to our kids. he also told us that this has happened about 40 times yet they still are not informing people of the tickets they are selling?? 3 people in the line itself overheard us and told us they are having the same issue. its robbing. I will never use this service again I will stick to busses. Disgusted.
  • A modern developed station mixed with the old traditional structure.
  • I missed my train st Victoria station because of incorrect information from Google, however the lovely gentleman from platform from 1 directed me the best route to get to Leeds.
