We booked the Macdonals hotel as we were attending a function at the venue and paid £90 for a twin room for the night. On arrival at the hotel friends of ours were still waiting for their room to be ready at 5pm (with the function due to begin at 7pm) and our own room was not cleaned properly following... More

Loverly hotel. Only problem we had was check in and the room being ready. Hoped to check in early 11.30 but room not ready. Came back at 3.30pm to find out still not ready. Got to our room after 5pm. Drinks expensive

Great location for city centre with about a 10 mins walk to the shops. Parking available for a fee. Friendly staff who are very helpful. Spacious clean rooms with comfortable beds. Would stay here again.

Fantastic location (round the corner from Piccadilly Station), and superb value for money. Stylish furniture in rooms, which makes you think it would be a lot more money! Huge bathroom & comfy beds :)

Lovely hotel with spacious rooms. And friendly hep,ful staff. Very convenient for Manchester Picadiily station. My only niggle is that there isn't free Wifi. Trip advisor insists on 200 characters for a review. Why can't it be short and to the point? I was only there from one night!! As you can see I'm writing this last part to keep... More

Came for a long weekend break to visit the city for a bit of shopping and to see a comedian at the O2 Apollo. This hotel was a great location for both, the city is a 10 minute walk, if that, to the main centre and Ardendale shopping. It is also only 2 minutes from Piccadilly train station. For us... More

Picture window really was a nice bonus, although view over Uni Dig is nothing to write home about! Staff were pretty average, breakfast staff were poor. After asking if I had visited before (no) they dumped me... More
