Scratch beneath the surface, however, and it falls apart. Let's start with how the windows don't open, they're painted shut. This leaves you gasping for fresh air and with a sense... More

My wife asked for tomatoes and mushrooms for breakfast and was served half a tomato and half a mushroom, that was all. The service allows for ordering meals up to 10 p.m. We tried to order at 9.25 to be told the Chef had gone home, there was no hot food. This is the worst McDonald hotel I have ever... More

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

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).
