A small, boutique hotel. A 5 minute walk from Piccadilly station. Room was very good, interesting décor, good facilities, good bar and drinks and a 'welcome tray'. Each room is decorated differently - the one I stayed in was very Highlands - tartan wall paper, antlers everywhere. Bed very comfy. The reception area was a big dark and pokey -... More

We visited yesterday for my birthday and as an overnight stay for a concert at the arena. We were so pleasantly surprised when we were shown to our room by the guy on front desk. Beautiful room, gorgeous bed, chandeliers, heavy drapes, big mirror... We were brought a tea tray within 5 minutes with biscuits in a little jar- these... More

Lovely hotel, stylish and tasteful. Attentive staff and lovely extras like home cooked biscuits and fresh milk in the room. Biggest most comfortable bed ever and breakfast was also top notch. Nicely situated easy walk to most of Manchester central.

For my first time in Manchester I was thrilled at our hotel choice. From the moment I arrived, I knew this was going to be something special. Gorgeous rooms, amazing staff, wonderful food and very well located. This gem on Canal street will not disappoint you. We stayed in the loft suite on the fourth floor and when we walked... More

The quirky rooms, service and all the staff are fantastic, I cannot recommend this hotel enough. In room food basket & mini bar are great as is the full breakfast, if you have space enough after the evening meal.

We stayed in the room with the big bath. The room was nice. We stayed for a week. On the 4th night our bottle of water left in the ice bucket disappeared after we returned from dinner. Housekeeping had done a very messy turn down and we assumed they took it as rubbish. The next day I was walking in... More

It seems that a combination of circumstances has led you to feel that our housekeeping service was less than adequate and I’m sorry about that. During the whole 7 days of your stay you had ‘do not...
