This hotel is nice clean and with great ambiance. You look out over the city old and new from the club rooms on the 8 floor. Room service breakfast isn't great black pudding rock had bacon but sad looking but the pastries are better. Reception/concierge are good responsive and give a professional feel to a well appointed hotel.

I stayed for one night and booked a double room using iHG points. No upgrade on arrival as there was none available but we were offered access to the lounge. No welcome letter either?

Perfect location for shopping. A ten minute walk to the Deansgate and the bars of Manchester. The breakfast was superb and the housekeeping was of an excellent standard. I would definitely stay here again.

Decided to use this hotel to cash in some ICH reward points; really good move. Location is great for the City centre and access to busses and trams. Reception & check-in is swift with the room being available on arrival about one hour early (1pm) so that was pleasing after a three and a half hour drive. Rooms are kitted... More

Location of this hotel is excellent. Not far from the shops. The Christmas markets were on in city centre which in itself was wonderful. Staff were pleasant. Breakfast was standard enough. Very functional hotel for a base to the city . Will defiantly return.
