Clean room comfy bed and great shower. Restaurant / bar food is tasty and OK, slighty pricey but suited me out of convenience, although on the two nights I was there, it was very quiet but the rooms were full.

Outrageous prices for meals that consist of 2 mouthfuls for around £20. Eat out! The breakfast staff are more concerned as to whether breakfast is included in your bill & getting you to sign a till chit ahead of finding you a seat. Lovely hotel with some great staff but move the focus from penny pinching in the Restaurant &... More

Me and my mum stayed here after we saw a show at Phones 4 U Arena, and it was such a lovely and welcoming place. Room service was excellent and rooms were absolutely spotless. The staff were amazing and chatted to us about the show we saw. We never noticed the noise that other people have mentioned but we didn't... More

We booked a room here on Orbitz and wasn't quite sure what to expect. We received the best room I've ever enjoyed in the UK. The decor is modern but comfortable. We found the room to be very quiet and well suited for sleeping in every morning. Special thanks to Kimberly at reception who was superb. The location is ideally... More

The rooms were clean and the hotel is in a great location for the town centre. The staff were friendly and breakfast was good. I would stay again as the hotel had a relaxed but elegant feel. We had a deal were we received a free cream tea. It was lovely to relax after a days shopping.

We had a wonderful stay here on a short staycation to Manchester. Got a better deal on their website than a well known website which gives you cheaper deals. A lovely, clean, modern room with classy furnishings. The hotel was well situated as we were within walking distance for everything we wanted to do, shopping, museum, corrie tour and meals... More

I enjoyed a night of luxury whilst staying at the Macdonald Townhouse Hotel. The room was amazing, with a huge bed and probably the best shower I've ever had! All of the staff were great, especially the bar staff who recommended some great cocktails to try. I was sad to leave and am already thinking of an excuse to book... More

I stayed at the Macdonald Townhouse on Friday night with my girlfriend- what a great hotel! Our room was spacious, spotless and modern. The location was perfect and the staff amazing. We enjoyed delicious cocktails in the bar, all expertly made! Our fuzzy heads the next morning were soon gone after breakfast in bed (great sausages!) and a nice hot... More
