I was visiting Manchester for work and the hotel was chosen for me. On arrival the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. I had a small room on the 9th floor with a big bed taking up the space in the centre. This made me smile! The bathroom was again in a narrow room but fully functional and clean.... More

I stay in Manchester very frequently, mainly on business. I've stayed in the Mercure once. The outside of the building is very dated and put me off staying before. I was pleasantly surprised by the interior. It was clean and had everything you need for an overnight stay. All in all a good budget hotel.

Dear Guest Thank you for posting your review following your recent stay with us for a business trip. The design of our building externally does reflect the time the hotel was built back in the 1960's, however, the interior of the building has indeed changed somewhat over the years and I was pleased to hear that you found everything to...

We have stayed many times when the hotel was the Ramanda chain and always found it very good for city stays. I must say it's now even better.

Stayed here in February after a Jason Manford stand up at the Apollo. Although we live only twenty minutes out of Manchester we wanted a night out, something different. Therefore we decided to book a room here for the night. How impressed we were! The price is brilliant for what you get, which is a great central location, clean and... More

We paid £130 for a standard on a Friday and £165 for the Saturday - then they charged me £30 to park at the hotel. Two nights = £325.

I have been staying at the Mercure for 4 weeks on business. I've found the hotel very clean and well kept. All areas look smart as do the staff.

Stayed four weeks in this hotel for training and found the staff, the service, the breakfast and the location excellent. The rooms are clean and good for one person. During football the staff made sure those on business were allocated quiet rooms (on different floors). Enjoyed my stay and looking forward to returning in two weeks time.
