Stayed for one night and really like this hotel. Booked months in advance and got the stay including breakfast for just over £100. For that this has to be the best hotel in Manchester. The Room is big, comfortable, clean and quiet. The hotel has a modern feel to it although the open area for the bar does lack a... More

My fiance booked this hotel for us to stay at overnight as we we were going to a gig at the 02 Apollo and didn't want to be rushing to catch the last train. It was also part of my birthday present too so he went for somewhere a little fancier than a Premier Inn. He dropped a bit of... More

Me and my partner stayed here last November in the panoramic rooms. Well, they are actually amazing. Surround sound in the room, including bathroom! Amazing views all around of the city, big comfortable beds, the list is endless. The rooms are 5* quality. All staff were friendly and efficient, both in reception, bar and restaurant. We dined in the restaurant,... More

An award-winning hotel chain, according to the banner outside the hotel, but could be improved further with a little staff training and attention to detail. We arrived on Saturday with the room booked until Wednesday, but by Sunday morning had to have the key cards reset. We used the face cloths on Saturday evening and Sunday morning, and when the...

I have given the hotel an average rating as the hotel itself was very nice, lovely room (bar the view), friendly staff. The description on the hotel website indicates it was a good location - it is basically located next to Piccadilly station in a very dull area and nowhere near the shops or Restaurants. The website also indicated we... More

I stayed here in July 2013 as I was due to fly to Madrid, but British Airways decided that they couldn't be bothered flying anymore passengers as it was past their pilots' bedtime. I (and around 30 other people) arrived at about 1am, tired and fed-up. The hotel staff handled it very well and we were all pretty much immediately... More

We stayed for 2 nights in Manchester (Wednesday & Thursday nights). We traveled from London by train & were delighted that the hotel was literally 2 minutes walk from Piccadilly Station. The welcoming staff at reception couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. The Executive Room was large, comfortable with huge room length windows, great bed & pillows, superb large... More

Really friendly reception staff, very helpful. Rooms absolutely beautiful. I requested a room gesture of scattered rose petals and this was done to a high standard. Everything was spot on and I would visit here again. Close to everything just a few minute walk.
