Stayed here during pride weekend, this made it loud but that was nothing to worry about. I had wished we had been informed it was pride weekend as we are not from the area but noise stopped just after half eleven so for us was not too bad. The location of the hotel is fantastic, just a five/ten minute walk... More

We stayed at Manchester pride weekend and booked here as a birthday surprise. We have stayed here before and been very impressed. Not sure if it was due to the hotel being full due to pride but it wasn't quite it's usual standard. The room was small but we'll equipped. It was really noisy. In the middle of the night... More

Although it was a bank holiday weekend and the staff where busy, they made every effort to make us feel individual and welcomed. Overall the stay was comfortable regardless of the surrounding noise of the city.

Weekend trip to visit family. Staff excellent & very accomodating. As it is a listed building, double/triple glazing is out of the question so for country bumpkins like us it was noisy...externally. Breakfast spot on & waiting staff were very pleasant & jovial.

We were welcomed at reception by quite possibly the most friendly and charming receptionist I've met, Eloise, She was welcoming and friendly, and made us instantly relaxed, we arrived very stressed as our travel down to Manchester was a bit of a...
