Former Manchester United player Gary Neville has responded to criticism of inflated prices for the new hotel which he part-owns which is to open next month in the shadows of Old Trafford.
Sky Sports pundit Neville, 39, is opening the hotel on February 28th along with former team-mate Ryan Giggs, 41.
The hotel, which has 133 rooms is over 10 storeys will be able to host 1,500 fans on match days, but some fans have been unhappy with the proposed prices for the new venue.
But the ex-United star, said the beer was good value, and the same price as pubs nearby.

So, everyone seems to agree that @GNev2 should have built a hotel for local people. Hmm.— joeboff (@joeboff) January 17, 2015
@GNev2 3.50 a pint in your hotel? Maybe for city fans but what about united fans haha— M A T T H E W™ (@M85Official) January 17, 2015
@GNev2 hope your hotel venture goes well but £270 has priced me out, I will however happily spend the £60 fuel money to get to the game!!— Adrian (@adetattersall) January 16, 2015

And addressing the rumours a pint would cost nearly a fiver, he said: “You’re looking at London prices, mate. Pint £3.50 like Trafford Arms and others!”
