I attended this venue for the work's Christmas do, and wish I hadn't bothered. We were made to queue outside in the rain just to get through the door, despite having booked our allocated tables with seating plans months in advance. Two other parties had been arranged for the same day yet it would be considered overcrowded with our group... More

The bathroom had two sinks shower room separate toilet room, this was a bit of a hike from bedroom upstairs! Upstairs had a mezzanine level bedroom... More

Situated just off Quay Street close to Granada it's handy for Deansgate and Spinningfields areas - car parking is dreadful and the wardens are hot here even at night so the valet parking was an...

December Christmas parties’ season Dear guest As with most hotels in December, parties are a nightly event and we apologise for any noise that has disturbed your stay. Unfortunately on this occasion 90% of the residents on the night you stayed were attending the parties and hence the noise in the corridors when they were returning to their rooms. We... More

Love this hotel, beautiful building inside and out. Most bedrooms are mezzanines with huge windows. Very romantic. The roof top bar and hot tub is a great touch - open till 1am. Very good staff. Debbie on reception was most helpful on our arrival. I have stayed in this hotel 3 times, and will continue to go back. Best hotel... More

The good - we had a nice client dinner, staff were helpful , the rooms are interesting. The bad - they forgot my wake up call , they forgot to order a taxi, reception didn't answer my call. Now, they can make the place look as nice as they want, the rooms can be as quirky as they please, but... More

Furthermore the telephone number she provided was incorrect and she couldn’t be contacted. As per the terms and conditions you signed when registering as a guest at the hotel you are ultimately responsible for any charges incurred if the agreed payment... More

We booked one Friday night and got upgraded. The room was lovely and found the hotel to be ideally situated for our night out in manchester. Staff were all courteous and friendly. Can't wait to stay again.

6 of us stayed and the rooms were great but far too hot and stuffy, the spare duvet in the wardrobe had a small blood stain in our room so not too inviting. The afternoon tea was good quality but after two bottles of champagne they ran out and could only offer room temperature of a different brand and the... More
