Very cheerful and helpful staff. Receptionist on arrival very welcoming. Good facilities and central location. Breakfast was good with lots of choice. Only five mins walk from Piccadilly station. Would definitely stay again.

I visited The Pendulum Hotel for the first time on Wednesday 25th march 2015 at 18:10. In the following order I met these members of the hotel team. All these individual people showed me much hospitality with a much professional approach. Lasma who worked behind the main bar was from Latvia was so passionate about what she did there smiling...

Can't fault this hotel, definitely value for money. Our room was really quite small but had everything you may need including fan, iron, iron board and hairdryer. Breakfast was lovely and buffet so eat as much as you like. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The manager Jay who was on duty was helpful sorting out a booking made through... More

Stayed here recently with my partner, the size of the room was a big disappointment and the bed itself was very uncomfortable. Apart from this though I could not fault the hotel. The food was exceptional and the location was perfect. Not sure if I'd stay here again though there are better alternatives.

Pleased that you enjoyed exceptional food, and you found our hotel was in a great location. Our compact city double rooms are our smallest doubles and well-equipped for an overnight stay. Our classic doubles, twins or exec-suite rooms offer more space and separate seating areas, if room size is a more important consideration for your stay. Thank you for sharing... More

There's nothing wrong with it as such. But this is an odd hotel. On the plus side, fast free wifi. And an awesome location. A very short walk into Manchester city centre. On the negative side, the building was clearly designed by the work experience kid at the architect's office. It's full of weird twisty corridors, and strange uses of... More

We are pleased that you found our central location to be ‘awesome’ and our famous pendulum to be ‘cool’. Whilst we are not typically reviewed on our architectural merits, we certainly enjoy our local guest ales in the bar – and are pleased you thought they tasted good too. Our compact ‘city double’ rooms are our smallest doubles – ideally... More

I have just spent a night at the hotel with a group of friends for a hen do. The hotel was really easy to find and close to a 24 hr car park that was half-price at the weekend, which was a bonus! Check-in was breezy and the lady behind the desk very pleasant. The rooms were very clean and... More

Just spent a night here, in this excellent hotel. The staff were very good especially the manager who was on duty. I think he was called Jay. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are lovely, and the breakfast was extremely good. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends, and I would most certainly stay here again!
