While back in the UK taking a break from our digital nomad adventure we planned a break away to London to catch the SHOMOS and also made it to Manchester for BlogOn.

I don't think there is anything you can fault with this hotel, it is in a great location and has everything you could possibly need. While you are out of the city centre it would be a simple 15-minute car ride away and public transport links available. Though we wouldn't usually pay so much for one night in a hotel, I definitely feel I got my money's worth. The hotel is great and the room is even better.
While staying in Manchester for one night coming straight from London to Manchester for BlogOn we chose to stay at the venue of the event at hotel football.

Hotel Football is located out of the city centre next to Manchester United football ground. The hotel is in a perfect location for anyone visiting the ground for a tour or for a match. We got the train to Manchester and an Uber to the hotel. There is parking available but is not joined to the hotel.
The hotel is located out of the city centre but there are bus and tram stops a 6-minute walk away and can be in the city centre by car within 15 minutes (traffic dependent).
We stayed in a double room with ensuite on the 8th floor, the room was directly in front of us at the end of a long corridor. The room was bright, clean, comfortable and came with everything you would need and more.
The bed was very comfortable and a bonus for us was having two pillows each. The room was large and spacious with plenty of storage, seating options and a desk area to work or do your hair and makeup like Helen did.
The room came with plenty of other surprises and goodies to make you feel even more like a celebrity. Things like the mini fridge stocked with drinks and snacks, the robe and slippers (which Helen wouldn’t take off) and of course the amazing views of the football ground and Manchester.
The ensuite bathroom was very clean, spacious and bright, stocked with shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The best part of the bathroom was having not just a shower but a separate bath too, perfect for leaving your wife to spoil herself while you’re at a football match.
The hotel had a dining area for breakfast, with a sweet shop bar and bar for the evening. The reception was clean, tidy and very welcoming with bright colours and a cool feel. The hotel was decorated in a great cool theme of football but in no way did it ever feel too much.
We had breakfast included in our night stay and so took advantage of the cooked breakfast, after being seated we could help ourselves to fresh fruit juices, selection of cereals, pastries and toast. The lovely staff took your tea or coffee order and brought it to your table.
Breakfast was wonderful and definitely what you need to start the day, Helen doesn’t like beans and sometimes forgets to order her breakfast without but this time was different and they came in a cute little dish on the side which she loved.
This is definitely a place I would stay again and recommend to friends and family for their trip to Manchester. I really enjoyed the small details in the room to help you feel relaxed, I really enjoyed the luxury of the Hotel without feeling out of place.
If you have stayed at a Hotel Football before and have any experiences let me know in the comments.
