Stayed here for our first year anniversary and we're not disappointed. The room (opus grand) was truly opulent and if we went again we would order food in and make more use of the room! The staff were really helpful and made the stay very special even though there were two events on the same night we were there so... More

Lovely afternoon tea with wonderful service from the staff. We were made to feel very welcome and relaxed there for a few hours, they even brought out a birthday chocolate slab for my sisters birthday. Would definitely recommend!

We booked here just for 1 night away to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. A complimentary upgrade was nice. We had a spilt level room with open balcony bedroom to the lounge area below. No view out of the window and noisy pipe work all night! Aside from that it was a lovely room, romantic and comfy. The staff were... More

Spent two nights at this remarkable hotel in Manchester from the 20th-22nd June. We were guests at Laura & Chris Stone's wedding party and we had the best time from start to finish. This hotel, a former school, is quirky, characterful and a real jewel in Manchester's crown. From the outside you would never dream what beautiful old fashioned yet... More

Booked a last minute rate, price quoted doesn't include VAT and it wasn't cheap. Our room was lovely, very big bed and a bath in the corner along with a wet room. Good touch of home made cookies and real milk on arrival. Staff were very nice and although we didn't eat there we had drinks on the residents terrace... More

Took 3 requests to get spoons so could eat Eton mess. Had to ask for jam and cream for the scones and was told could only have jam, yet adjacent tables all had cream so we had... More

We had a fantastic stay here while on business in Manchester. It was a great hotel and good location. Gym is perfect for winding down after a long day. We are two lawyers who live in central London and often eat out/brunch in both restaurants and hotels but we were extremely shocked by the price of breakfast at £18. This... More
