Stayed here last night whilst we went to visit the Christmas Markets. Stayed in MacDonald Doubletree last year but couldn't get in it this time. Check in was efficient, receptionist very helpful. Stayed in an executive room on 4th floor. Room was large and spacious, no drawers if you were staying longer than overnight tho. The bathroom lighting was somewhat... More

Very comfortable room, take a map to get all the way round the comfy bed. The room got quite warm in the night. The room could be improved with better lighting for dressing/make up etc, bathroom and room were ok for general use. Waitress staff very pleasant, barman had no smiles left. Breakfast was disappointingly greasy, but tasty. Good tea... More

Comfortable and welcoming hotel. We were pleased that the hotel had taken note of our request for a quiet room and we were on the top floor, in a quiet corner. We enjoyed a lovely meal in the restaurant in the evening. Only grumble was an under powered shower.

Fantastic hotel in terms of staff, cleanliness and location - lovely welcome from reception staff, who knew I was a member. We have stayed in many Macdonald hotels and we will stay in this one again on future visits to Manchester.

Really great hotel in a very central location. Staff are very welcoming and hotel is of a top standard. Quality of rooms / bathrooms is high. Have only eaten lunch & breakfast here, but they were high standard and well presented. Good for business meetings too with excellent conference / meeting facilities.

I stayed in the MacDonald Townhouse after a conference in the city and chose it for its location and large sized rooms. The staff were helpful, I was greeted with a plate of chocolates saying "Welcome" in my room and was attracted by the size of the room. I had a King sized bed, a sofa and chairs, a table... More
