We decided to stay at the Blue Rainbow apartments in Manchester as a change from staying in a hotel when visiting family. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for £100 a night. This price included bread, butter, tea, coffee, cereals and a pint of milk.
The apartment was large, with 2 decent sized bedrooms, though they are not the biggest Ive ever seen. One bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with just a shower, sink and toilet. There is also another bathroom complete with a combined bath and shower.
The kitchen is compact but has everything you need, including a dishwasher and combined washing machine and dryer (with the relevant washing tablets included).
In the lounge, there is a nice large TV, a dining table and a coffee table. For some strange reason they only have one sofa in an apartment that could easily fit four adults in.
There is also a balcony. It is only small, but you could fit a couple of chairs on there.
There are a couple of downsides to these apartments. The first is that they are extreamely warm. We had all windows open and a fan on and we were still cooking! Also, the lighting in the bathrooms was a bit poxy, so we were shower in very dim light.
These apartments are really close to Deansgate train station in Manchester. As it is in the centre of the city, it is also close to the shopping areas, though it is easier to get the tram instead of a hike up Deansgate.
