We enjoyed a very good an generous afternoon tea. The only disappointment was that the actual tea drink was a little late in being brought to the table. It would have been nice to have the tea with the sandwiches,

Close for whatever you need in Manchester (except possibly class A drugs). Beautiful historic hotel with generous bedrooms and staff who can't do enough. Food (provided as part of conference package ) was only OK and did not live up to the surroundings. But bedroom nice and spacious and comfortable.

This hotel is located near the city centre, and you have restaurants, shopping etc nearby. The breakfast is very good here. The hotel restaurants seemed very nice, unfortunately I did not get the chance to eat there during our short stay. The hotel is very nice, rooms are nice and big. The employees in the hotel are very friendly and... More

The hotel has improved since Q hotels took over, albeit after a shaky start. Some of the rooms can be claustrophobic, but all are well equipped with hairdryers, tea/coffee makers etc. and very nicely furnished.

From the outside, lobby, bar and breakfast area, this is a pretty hotel. The location of the hotel is also very good - central but slightly further away from the main shopping areas so it was quiet (good for sleeping). The rooms were fine, though could use a retouch eg some small cracks in the bathroom tiles. We had the... More

Moved to the Hilton although booking was made 2 months in advance. Had to cancel restaurant booking in hotel also as was not prepared to return to hotel that had no accommodation for for us. Ruined anniversary, Hilton was very nice so will happily return there in future.

This had to be the best afternoon tea I've had. I visited with 2 friends and we all throughly enjoyed ourselves. I am a total cake snob and everything was superb, in fact I was upset I couldn't finish all the cakes. The staff were very helpful and attentive without being intrusive. It was the complete package, lovely tea, delicious... More

We love this extremely comfortable Hotel where all the staff are so very kind, polite and efficient offering such a warm welcome. The concierge persons were most helpful. Although we had not eaten in the French Restaurant we thought the decor was minimalist and uninviting and not at all in keeping with the image of the Midland Hotel.

I stopped here with my partner to celebrate a birthday. I booked the hotel only 2 weeks ago and I didn't think the price was too bad with it being such short notice. The hotel is very grand and it shines with this as soon as you walk in. Check in was very easy and the staff were friendly. They... More
