Very friendly and helpful staff. Unique, luxurious rooms with very nice to touches that set it apart from average hotels. Good Bar and restaurant. Definately my hotel of choice when I visit it Manhester in future.

i'm all supporting the pink pound but the food here is poor. Cheap food dressed up in nice surroundings. I've given them 3 chances in the last 12 months and all I've got on every occasion is basic over cooked badly presented food. They use the cheapest ingredients with no wow factor whatsoever. If you're looking for good food go... More

Stayed just the one night, what a lovely hotel. It felt stylish and intimate on arrival, with a really pleasant welcome from receptionist. The room and bathroom were really nice, with the added touches of bathrobes and slippers provided. A tray was brought up to the room after checking in with filled ice bucket, sliced lemon and lime, milk, biscuits.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my short stay. Friendly, welcoming and hospitable - genuine service. The whole wall of my room was like an Italian fresco and the bed very comfortable. Bathroom was fabulous - unfortunately did not have time for a bath and would have liked to have stolen the rubber duck..but did not!

Warm welcome, room was cold but air con / heating effective. On the whole an OK sort of stay, slight musty smell and some of the paintwork and detail was a little tired. Toilet seat was almost falling off.For an establishment calling itself 4 star and charging around £ 200 a night for a standard room (weekend price), I would... More

Dear Guest, I'm sorry to hear that there were some elements of your stay that you felt fell short of what you would have expected. Due to our high occupancy levels, our rooms are used pretty much every day and therefore cleaned and aired and inspected, pretty much every day. So I am unhappy to hear that you thought it... More

Really lovely stay with my boyfriend, first time him visiting my home town and was really pleasantly surprised how great (and quiet considering its on canal street) the hotel was. Super helpful friendly staff and a great breakfast and the room was smashing with the biggest bath I've ever seen!! Only downfall was that the bed was really rickety, when... More

A two night stay in one of the Penthouses was excellent. Room was brilliant. Staff were attentive without being over bearing. Super location and an very good resturant/bar attached. Canal Street is a buzzing part of the City Centre.

The room initially looked nice but once we had unpacked we realized that a lot of the furniture was quite warn. The room was however well stocked with iron, ironing board, drinks and mini bar. I always take my own... More
