The hotel rooms are large and spacious. The bathrooms are enormous and the shower is really large with a separate bath. If you book bed and breakfast you have the option of having a hamper breakfast in your room rather than eating in the restaurant. The hamper is deluxe and worth a go. The hotel is walking distance from Manchester... More

Nice warm welcome on arrival. Room a good size, very clean, modern feel. Staff friendly and courteous. On returning one evening I found there was an envelope slipped under my door. Inside was a very formal note from the management on hotel headed paper.... What could it be? I was to report to reception to receive a message..... Fearing it... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of June 2024. Beautiful room and bathroom, very clean and modern. Breakfast was fab. Cost a lot to park the car but being in a city centre I suppose it's expected. There are closer hotels to the shops/bars/restaurants, but if you don't mind walking or a short taxi it's perfect here :)

Me and my partner went there on a friday night without having a booking, the night manager was very helpful and kind and gave us a room and explained everything. We were supposed to leave the room at 12.00pm and we run a bit late, we got at the reception at 12.15pm and the girl on the front desk charged... More

This is a lovely hotel that is very modern and well kept. The rooms are very spacious and nicely furnished. The bathroom is amazing with a spacious bath and huge walk in shower. If you book here you wouldn't be dissapointed with the accomodation. I had a room on the 8th floor which afforded really nice views across the city.... More

The hotel and rooms are great, however, there seems to be penny pinching and poor service at every possible stage of the stay. For example, having paid for the room and breakfast in advance, I was told that I would be charged £50 per night on my debit card - in case I used the facilities and it would be... More

Having stayed at the Randolph in Oxford last week was looking forward to another Macdonald hotel. From an accommodation point of vIew I was not disappointed. Large spacious comfortable room, definitely one of the biggest if not the biggest for a 4* I've experienced, tho' not the best of beds for comfort. However, bar dining was disastrous.
