From booking in at reception where we were informed we had been upgraded to when we left following a very enjoyable breakfast we couldn't fault the service we received. We had a corner bedroom which gave a great view of Portland Street which looked fantastic at night with lots of night life, plenty going on but due to good double... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights the weekend just gone, we had a suite and the room was fantastic, with an incredibly comfy bed. The bedroom was very quiet , we could hear the noise from the street in the lounge, but this was not a problem as we weren't sleeping in here. The bathroom was beautiful... More

Me and my partner stayed here after a busy day shopping in Manchester. The room was fantastic and met all of our needs, I loved the decor and the bathroom was lovely also. We decided that we would eat in the restaurant that evening, unfortunately there was a big party on so it was very busy. The waiter was very... More

My partner & I had an overnight stay at Macdonald Townhouse Hotel as we were attending a jazz session in Manchester and thought it would be nice to stay over. This proved to be an excellent choice and great value for money. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff, they attended to our every need and even presented us... More

We stayed as a family of four in one of the suits with two bedrooms. Both rooms and bathroom were very spacious and clean. Overall the best place to stay when you´re in Manchester. Good breakfast with good service and good food (both warm and cold).

As a regular to Manchester, 2-3 times a year, Ive tried low budget (Campenile - not good), high end and serviced appts. This time I splashed out that bit extra to stay here... It was worth, top end room, lovely BIG comfortable bed, Egyptian cotton sheets, good TV options and really hearty Full English Breakfast "Northern style". Two comments, the... More

On business trip, mon-fri for summer months. A home away from home. Top class in every way. Modern, incredibly spacious, comfortable, classy rooms. Fresh breakfast cooked to order. Perfect for business or a treat. Feel like a person not a 'number'. Recommend the feature rooms! I was upgraded on my first stay! Very central location.

We chose the Macdonald Townhouse to spend a weekend (one night) shopping in Manchester, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The standard double room was small but perfectly formed, with a well fitted out bathroom. Breakfast was a highlight, with a good selection and helpful staff; we hit breakfast at a very busy time but this was no problem. The location is... More

Great location, small walk from Piccadilly Station. A few bars on the way. Reception staff good. Room great, nice bathroom and finishing touches. Robes coffee machine etc. Allround though quite expensive for a what you get. Didn't stay for breakfast, walked 50 meters up the road for a much cheaper option.

Just returned from a weekend stay at the macdonald townhouse. The hotel is in an excellent location and the lobby and bar/restaurant area is very stylish and modern. The room we had was nice and modern but the bathroom could have been updated. The shower was inside the bath which is not ideal and when using the shower in the... More
