    The biggest advantage that the Light offers is the excellent service and incredibly positive nature of it's staff. The gentleman that greeted us on our arrival was a joy to engage. I cannot recall his name but he had a shaven head and a Geordie accent, if that helps. He is an absolute keeper and adds value to the business. Location was perfect.

    Their are some simple things that can be added to make the accommodation just right. A full length mirror with a convenient power socket next to it in all of the bedrooms. A bedside cabinet on both sides of the bed. My spectacles cost more than the hotel bill so I'd prefer them to be off the floor. We couldn't fit a vauxhall insignia in the hotel car park. Their was parking opposite in a multistory car park but it's locked overnight and we had to check out at 4am to catch a flight. Luckily the reception allowed us to park on the ramp into the hotel car park for the night but if this had been occupied who knows what we would have done.

    Room was well presented and staff could not have been more helpful during the stay. Paying for the car parking space is well advised.

    We visited Manchester to attend an event at Manchester Arena. The Light was clean and perfectly situated. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the view from our apartment was fantastic. Everything was as described, except for the towelled robes, but not a problem as I asked at reception and they provided them. Would definately stay there again.

    Car park was a bit on the tight side but it was still nice to know it was safely parked during our stay.
