Parking: The venue parking facilities are not amazing.  There are
parking meter bays on the street but it’s very expensive, only really
good for a short stop.  There are paid parking lots around the venue,

vouch for how good they are.  A lot of them, perhaps all, are are owned
by NCP http://www.ncp.co.uk/ .  If you can’t decide otherwise then park
in Manchester Arndale.

Public Transport:
Manchester Victoria (MCV) train station, Shudehill tram station and
Manchester Piccadilly bus station are all fairly close to The Castle
Hotel, see http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/53.48356/-2.23386

train station and Manchester Central Coach Station are not too far either.
