Attended works Christmas party last weekend in November. Late preparing room and bar so left with small prosecco for over 40 minutes. Shown to room which had a small low stocked bar in another room. Food poor, cold and minimal. Drinks overpriced. Very expensive for what was on offer. Fortunately the company was the saving grace of the evening. Will... More

I looked forward to staying at this classic hotel, having had to cancel on two previous occasions. Stayed in a superior room, which was well appointed and very comfortable. Good service and the public areas well maintained. Excellent location right in the heart of Manchester. Breakfast a disappointment, but otherwise a solid four-star hotel. However, quite expensive for what it... More

After a few months at home we had a night away in Manchester to visit the Christmas Markets (the less said the better!) and we stayed at the best hotel in my World so far. Sheer, utter, absolute and unequivocal Heaven. From the moment we were welcomed with quiet, friendly efficiency by the Receptionist to being sent on our way... More

Lovely hotel in the heart of the city of Manchester. The food at Coopers restaurant was lovely and the staff very helpful. The room was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. No complaints whatsoever with this hotel. We had a comfortable stay and were looked after well by the staff.

Have stayed in this hotel numerous times and often work from the lounge area when passing through the town. The lounge service is excellent with good breakfast and lunch menu. Rooms are well maintained. Minibar which is a dying breed these days. Phone signal is downside, but expected in solid built building. The hotels history adds to the overall grandness.

I have stayed at the Midland multiple times for business over the past few years. Obviously, it is a historic property...with all the good and bad that comes with that. There is always a doorman quick to open the door or hail a cab. The lobby is grand and bright, but could use additional seating. I have always been treated... More

A charming old hotel ( with the emphasis on old) with lots of original features like ceilings in your room that seem a mile high and floors that creak when you walk across them but all of this is good and adds to the the overall charm of this hotel, it has a couple of places to eat, Mr Coopers...
