The good news for visitors to Manchester is that the city offers endless options for an affordable night’s sleep. For the first time or infrequent visitor, however, that can feel overwhelming, especially if you’re not sure where to start in your search. A budget B&B in this incredible city is the perfect option for many people. By stepping away from the push and pace of the high-traffic city centre and looking in quiet residential areas just a short hop away, you’ll find your options are broadened massively—and your stay will be all the happier for it.

Staying a little further out is an easy, sensible choice—thanks to exceptional public transport links via bus and Metrolink, the shops, sights and businesses of Central Manchester are always within easy reach. But why choose a budget B&B over a hotel or self-catering apartments? We think there are some great reasons; here are just a few of our favourites:


The personal touch

Unlike a large chain hotel or self-catering apartment, a B&B is all about the personal touch. Our home is our business, and we pride ourselves on being friendly, welcoming and approachable to all our guests. If you like intimate, individual rooms, you’ve come to the right place. Think of it as your home and away from home, and make yourself comfortable. Need anything? We live here too, so all you need to do is ask.


The owner at your disposal

We work in this industry because we love meeting people and helping them to get the most out of their time in Manchester. When you stay at a budget B&B you get the benefits of having local people at your disposal, happy to help. Wondering what the best local pub is? Just ask. Not sure which of Manchester’s museums is worth seeing on an afternoon off work? Let’s have a cup of tea and talk about it. Struggling to work out how to get from A to B cheaply? We can help.


Stepping out of the city centre

We love the beating heart of Manchester—it’s one of the most vital, fast-paced city centres in the country, and there’s always something happening. That’s great, but at the end of a busy day some travellers really appreciate being able to take a step back from the city centre, retreat to the quiet of a leafy residential suburb and curl up with a book or the TV. We couldn’t agree more.


Breakfast options in house

We have a lot of people stay with us who have used chain hotels or self-catering apartments in the past but now wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else. Why? Well, partly because of that second ‘B’— You’re never far away from a cafe in Manchester, but why leave the place you’re staying to find breakfast when you can wake up, roll downstairs and be enjoying either a light continental breakfast or a cooked full English before you’ve even walked out the door?


A sense of community

From chatting to other guests over breakfast to talking Manchester with us in the residents’ lounge over a cup of tea, we like to think that budget B&Bs—and particularly this budget B&B—create a feeling of community when you’re out on the road, whether it’s for business or pleasure. Better than the anonymity of chain hotels, and better than just being left to it in a self-catering property. You deserve better than that, and we can provide it.


New Central Guest House is the ideal B&B for your time in Manchester, whether you’re here to see the sights or earn your wage. Located just 1.5 miles from the city’s vibrant, cosmopolitan city centre, our family-run B&B offer comfortable rooms, cooked or continental breakfasts, free Wi-Fi and a very warm welcome at great prices. We look forward to sharing our Manchester with you—get in touch now using our contact page, and we’ll see you when you get here!
