End of an era, no more free overnight accommodation.

Certainly an improvement over the old derelict cop shop!

Looks a bit stark. Did they leave the stainless steel toilets in???

Nice photo, although it looks like a lego building. And can nobody design a sign that can be mounted horizontal rather than vertical.

Roughly on the site of The Adelphi public house (not sure of the spelling) demolished circa 1970. Good photograph Brian.

Joe Grainey, you are correct. Spent last night in a Premier Inn in Manchester. Room £80.00 Plus breakfast £ 8.25.

It should have been demolished and then rebuilt. As it is it still looks like the old cop shop

I stayed in the Carr Mill one for personal reasons the prices were a shock.
