We had a delux room for two nights with dinner and two breakfasts. We also had Xmas afternoon tea with mulled wine. The food was fab and the service flawless. Breakfast was fab with buffet and specialty items such as Manx kippers and eggs benedict made to order. The showers were the most powerful I have ever had in a... More

I came with my wife as she's never experienced a Manchester night out. I didn't want to pay the earth for literally a shower and bed. The thistle hotel was great value in a great location. I'd say it's an upmarket Travelodge however a lot more comfortable. Staff were very friendly. Bed was very comfy. Shower was brilliant. As i... More

Stayed here 4 nights while on a training course nearby. So, it's a great location. A short walk from Piccadilly train station, tram and bus stops close to hand and right in the centre of the city. Reception staff were very helpful. Check-in and check-out were simple and they were happy to take my luggage before and after. I had... More

Booked this as a Secret hotel from TripAdvisor and it turned out to be a gem. £57 for the night for 2 of us in a twin room was a great price considering I booked closer to the date than I shouldve (1week prior). Location was great, close to everything and within walking distance of anywhere you need to go.... More

Very small room , noisy air conditioning, hard and not a comfortable bed. staff friendly but not full star service. Very good location for centre and railway station. Quite room otherwise and clean. They Seem to be more interested in business suites than beds. Breakfast good selection.

Convenient location, helpful reception staff. Good choice at breakfast and friendly staff. Very small room but clean and with good facilities. Lumpy bed. Quiet overnight allowing good sleep and working air conditioning/heating. Good shower but shower screen would be welcome rather than the shower curtain installed.

Our room was small but had comfy beds, nice large bath towels and was clean and presentable. We didn't spend much time in it so didn't need a spacious room. The breakfast was excellent and the staff in the restaurant and bar were friendly. Marcus who was the Bar Manager couldn't have been more helpful and deserves a special mention.... More

The fact that this is the fourth time we've used this hotel indicates that its not terrible, however its not brilliant either. The rooms are small and looking tired. We had to move on our first night at 3am as the air conditioning unit was making loud noises even though it was switched off. The staff were friendly and the... More
