I went during the day so I definitely need to check it out at night too but the view was incredible. I had to order the vegetarian version of the afternoon tea and I loved all the food. Bit pricey for what you got but it is the Hilton so I expected it to be.

Booked cloud 23 for my other half's birthday so we walked straight up, which was nice, however the service peaked there. Even though the place was deserted, we were waiting a significant amount of time to order. The staff were lovely, but not until we asked for a food menu were we told they'd stopped serving food - very disappointing... More

I really enjoyed the couple of hours spent here as the views were amazing. We had cocktails which were a little expensive, but we were in The Hilton so wasn't expecting any different. We did wait a while for service and in the end one of the party went up to the bar, but then the waitress was sent over... More

My top tip would be not to waste your money at Cloud 23. It is horrendously overpriced and the afternoon tea is nothing special at all. The whole place is very scruffy inside and the tables weren't cleared around us. For somewhere inside a 5* hotel the service is shocking. You get a great view of Manchester and the cocktails... More

We went yesterday as a group of 3 and I'd made a booking earlier so we were straight in. We were screened upon entry and put on some naff seats in the back corner. Once we'd sweeped the table clear of crisps and nuts, we unfolded the stained menu to look at the over-priced selection of drinks. It was literally... More

Lovley place to have a drink, great views of Manchester City Centre and also good service. However, from our experience on Saturday night i do feel a little let down by the establishment. Cloud 23 is in my opinion the kind of bar which attracts more up-market or possibly well mannered clients. So we were not impressed when a 'drunk'... More

We booked an afternoon tea on the day of our wedding anniversary with, as usuall our 3 young children. We frequent afternoon teas a lot, and for the views, quality of food and being child friendly the hilton wins! For me looses leaf tea would be better. On this occasion - mid week - mid day the service was slow,... More

We were booked on the guest list on a sat evening which is so much better than having to stand in the queue, and when on the guest list you get to sit in a different part with amazing views,I don't mind paying £10 for a cocktail but £34 for a bottle of Pinot Grigio isn't very impressive, the service...

Lovely venue, fantastic views. Afternoon tea was superb, good selection of sandwiches and nice quiche. Delicious scones DNS cake selection. Staff could not do enough for you, were very helpful and made the event special. Would highly recommend.
