This hotel carried off the hard act of being right in the city centre (Princess Street) and also being a quiet place to sleep. Housed in a beautiful large old stone corner building, the inside decor is typical modern neutral hotel style. My room on the second floor was spacious with high ceilings, big windows, very comfortable bed and great... More

Fantastic location in the heart of Manchester sadly let down by reception service. Some (thankfully not all) of the staff were rude and patronising in the most unhelpful way. Check in was haphazard, rushed nothing explained (car parking, bar, breakfast ...) no offer of wake up time, or newspaper. It felt like we were an inconvenience. Although we weren't asked... More
