My partner and I stayed on a weekend with another couple. The room and bathroom was reasonably sized, clean and a lovely view of Manchester. Beds are extremely comfortable and big! We had drinks in the hotel bar; the staff were very attentive and table service was provided. People have mentioned a cheaper parking at the back of the hotel,... More

Lovely hotel and lovely room. Cant fault anything apart from the hotel charging £20 to park your car in their own carpark, I have never known anything like it, it should be free! Wifi wasnt working in the bedroom.

We chose to visit this hotel based on a previous stay that was fantastic. We were in Manchester for a concert and the hotel is very conveniently located next to Picadilly Station. Unfortunately this time the hotel did not meet our expectations - whether just an off day or if standards have slipped I'm not sure, but we had a... More

In general, the hotel and service is good. However, I'm listing some of the issues I had Laundry seems to be an issue - the plastic bag was there without the paper to mark the clothes. I called reception to send someone to pick it, no one showed up. I was forced to take the clothes to the reception. The... More

Very welcoming, clean adequate rooms not really anything more than a premier inn. Bar staff very helpful but prices on steeper side. Right next to train station so some noise disturbance. Ok stay overall

Lovely hotel, close enough to centre, shopping etc. Very comfy beds and soft fluffy robes. Rooms nice and quiet despite being on main road. Would not like to stay anywhere else now when in central Manchester

This hotel was very Comfortable, Central and welcoming. Staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside was having to pay extra to use the spa on a weekend. If this had been included it would have topped it off perfectly

Booked this hotel for a anniversary getaway and glad we did. Hotel is in great location, Just next to Piccadily station. We upgraded to an executive room and was more than happy with our choice. Nice touches such as bose sound system, nespresso machine, huge bathroom with his and hers sink. Only downside to the room was it did smell... More

Hotel was very nice ideally located right next to train station. We had the panoramic suite at a cost of £153 for one night stay. Apparently to be given on arrival was a "taster" plate from the chef, we had 4 sweets that could of honestly came out of a packet, would be very surprised if the chef made these... More

We stayed a couple of nights and enjoyed our visit. Spacious rooms and a very good shower. Well positioned next to the station - Oxford Rd and various University buildings very walkable. Staff were lovely, very helpful and always smiling. Breakfast good and hot food on the buffet was fresh. Dinner finished at 9.30pm. Coffee in the bar very expensive... More
