Our room could not be faulted, clean, comfortable and fortunately at the far end of the hotel away from the wedding party staying that weekend. Because the main dining room was being used by the party, it was out of bounds to other guests and we were served with our evening meal in a small "library" room which was quiet and the service very good. The food had to be chosen from the bar menu and was tasty, piping hot but laden with salt and no vegetables. The sweets were good and well prepared. The second day we shared breakfast with the wedding group and in the evening we had to eat in the bar because a gala of some kind was in progress. I would possibly use this hotel again if there was no wedding party taking precedent.
The hotel advertised free entry to the Lowry museum but could not supply either tickets or directions to get there. After almost 2hrs search we found the place which had free entry anyway. And I don't have satnav.
