The hotel is great, service good and staff helpful. Our room was clean and spacious and the hotel central. I even got a plate of chocolates in my room with a 'Happy Birthday' message, how nice and thoughtful and delicious too!! We had an amazing weekend and would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to Manchester. Thank you... More

My partner and I had the best stay ever at this hotel. We spent three nights here over Pride and we couldn't have asked for more. We were greeted by such friendly and helpful staff in particular the Scottish girl in the lobby who somehow was always smiling. The bedroom was lovely, spacious and clean and we will definitely return... More

We stayed at the Macdonald Townhouse for 1 night on 30th August. Having read some of the previous reviews we were somewhat apprehensive about our stay. However, we needn't have worried. The hotel is ideally located for the city centre, the main shopping area being just a 10 minute walk away and there are plenty of bars and restaurants in... More

Fast and effortless check in. Beautiful hotel with equally impressive room. Helpful staff, particularly the Operations Manager who went out of his way to ensure sure we enjoyed our stay. Will definitely return!

I stayed in the hotel during the pride weekend in Manchester. The experience couldn't be worse... The room was noisy, the room was dirty and I could even see how one of the cleaning staff used a dirty pillowcase to clean the glasses. Something very unpleasant.

We stayed at the Macdonald Townhouse Hotel for 4 nights over the August Bank Holiday, Pride weekend in Manchester. The hotel is perfectly situated, right in the middle of all the action, although it is surrounded by 24 hour bars and clubs and busy roads - so be prepared for the room to be very noisy from dusk until dawn...

I have stayed at the hotel about 5 times now, each time for at least three nights. I love this hotel I think it's fantastic. The beds are so comfortable, the rooms are spacious, clean and especially dark and quiet at night. The staff are super friendly and make you feel really welcome, I can be a little fussy (i... More

I was disappointed by my stay at this hotel. The room was very noisy, with a busy road outside - very noisy on a Saturday night. The room was also smaller than expected, especially the strangely shaped bathroom. On checkout, the bill was £3 more than agreed, due to an extra credit card charge. I had booked through a third-party... More

Stayed for the Manchester Pride Weekend, extremely welcoming staff, great central location, huge comfortable bedroom and bathroom, huge selection of drinks in the bar, especially the Pride Cocktails. Will defiantly stay here again when I visit Manchester.

I loved my stay at Macdonald Townhouse. My room was clean, neat, and had nice amenities. The property is in good condition. I had laryngitis and the bartender made me his special concoction to feel better with honey, tea, and spirits. It may not have cured me, but I slept well! The bed was very comfortable and the room delightfully... More

Dear Serendipityquest, Thank you so much for your lovely comments and praise for the hotel and the team. It is very nice to hear that you were made to feel so comfortable, in particular as you were on such an extended trip. As a boutique hotel with three points of entry we do not have door men posted at each... More
