Me, my partner and a group of 4 other friends stayed at the Macdonald Townhouse hotel for a refreshing break, and how delightfully refreshing it was. The overall ambiance, decor, service and friendliness within the hotel is, in my eyes, second to none. We arrived at the hotel in the afternoon to a very warm welcome. Jordan, the concierge behind...

Stayed for 2 weeks whilst training. Week one room was poor, week 2 much better. Staff friendly (especially breakfast team). Free wifi was good but tv was freeview and very limited. Not bad but nothing to rush back for. Functional.

My boyfriend & I stayed at the Macdonald townhouse hotel Sunday - Tuesday (mid November) & it has been fantastic. The overall look was very cosy & inviting & the reception staff are friendly & helpful. It is a 20 min walk from Shudehill bus station or a 5/10 min taxi ride (depending on traffic). On arrival we were greeted... More

I think this hotel is perfect to visit Manchester for business or pleasure. The rooms are comfortable and clean. It is very close to Piccadilly, China Town and two of the most important universities in Manchester. The only thing I miss is better coffee included in the breakfast.

I would happily have given this hotel a 4 star rating but for one major problem - our bedroom was absolutely unbearably cold and the heating system would only blow out cold air. We reported the problem on the way out to dinner and were told it would be looked at before out return. It clearly wasn't - the room... More

Booked two nights in September. We booked a Suite. Very nice. Lounge enormous bathroom and bedroom. Excellent value. Must be the best quality room in the city for the price. Hotel itself is ok. We found it a little quiet. Breakfast very good. Staff ok. Only complaint really was room service which was non existent which you wouldn't expect. But... More

Very smart place in ideal, central location for exploring Manchester. Menu for dinner is very short but VERY good. The food on both nights was excellent. The breakfasts are also excellent. As is the service. The room was the right size for us and had a bath AND a walk in shower. The staff are friendly and helpful - in... More

Great hotel in the middle of Manchester. Can't fault the location at all. Yes, it can be a bit noisy outside but you're in the middle of Manchester on a busy road, so what do you expect? I stayed in room 105 (on the first floor) and the noise is really not that bad. The windows are double glazed which... More

We had an executive double and the room was very nice. Actually happy that it was fairy cool. Only criticism is traffic noise. Sounded like rush hour at 3 in the morning. They do have secondary double glazing but I hope they are considering an investment in proper double glazing in the future. The bar was nice if expensive. A... More

Very nice hotel in a good location for city centre/china town/Canal St. Everything was spotless, rooms were spacious and beds very comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Hotel rather expensive for food/drink - £5.90 for a pint of bulmers! looking £17 pp for breakfast which is ridiculous after paying £260 to sleep in a bed for 2nights! i really think this... More
