My husband booked this hotel for us for our first wedding anniversary, based on the 5* status, however I do think that this should be de classified to a 4*. Whilst the service received was really very good, and there are no complaints in this respect, the actual hotel could do with some major improvements. The bathrooms need a re-vamp... More

This hotel is very easy to like because; Good location, close to the "trendy" areas for bars/restaurants yet nice and quiet, easy book in process and easy to park car (however not really that cheap to do this, 16.50 overnight bit steep) but was right outside. Hotel has a good feeling of space, wide corridors and the standard rooms are... More

First I would like to say this is a beautiful hotel and every person I saw was helpful and on the ball. My issue is with your very misleading advertising on line. I booked into the spa for the vitality package which is advertised as 165 minute spa package. Firstly I arrived and was seen straight away and shown to... More

Arrived to a warm welcome, bags taken up to rooms and checked in no problem (Was booked through Secret Escapes) - Staff all attentive and professional. Sent a iron and ironing board to the room as requested. Ordered breakfast to the rooms the next morning all to a very high standard. Will definitely stay again.

My girl friend decided to book a single night break in Manchester at The Lowry Hotel. On arrival we were met by a team of Concierge - very attentive - we used the Valet parking and it was the best i have used. The hotel staff on reception were again attentive, courteous and helpful. The bell boy was great showed... More

Stayed at The Lowry for just one night (unfortunately - certainly could have done longer) but found the staff to be courteous, friendly and very professional at all times. The room - city facing - was excellent and spacious and all we needed and more. Best of all though was the location; easy to reach from the ring road and... More

We went for a night away at the Lowry, the staff on arrival were attentive and welcoming. The room was bright and the bed was very comfy, the only gripe was the bin wasn't emptied from previous guest and the carpet needed updating as slightly stained. The building it's self is lovely and the staff were great, plus it's full... More

Just come back from an overnight stay at the Lowry hotel and honestly don't bother ! Their website is VERY VERY well photographed, reality is not the same. As it boasts its 5* precedence and Forte pedigree I certainly went with high expectation but unfortunately was left dissappointed, the expanse of glass and empty lobby's made it look like a... More
