Overall excellent, staff very helpful and friendly. Drinks, snacks and mini bar a bit pricey. Some other guests were noisy, could be clearly heard in the room at night when trying to sleep. Room temperature was difficult to control.

Key card didn't work, no extra bed for our child, they assumed our child would share the double bed with us(he's 11)! The lady at reception blamed me for not requesting an extra bed, when I explained that we had booked a room for 2 adults and 1 child she said that we hadn't told them the age of the... More

The hotel is really close to the Picaddilly train station but also very quiet, I arrived early in the morning and they were happy to let me shower in the Spa and drop my bags before I walked into town - 10 minutes. The room was comfortable and quiet. I had room service for dinner which was a good size... More

Would think twice before visiting the Manchester hotel again. Some elements of service slow and overly complex. Some items expected in the room were missing. Quality of staff very mixed from excellent down to poor

We are frequent users of Macdonald hotels across the UK. This is the 1st time we have used the Manchester facilities and will definitely be the last. We paid £114 for a Standard Double. On arrival we found that we had to pay and extra £20 for OVERNIGHT PARKING? Quite frankly that is disgusting given what you have just paid... More

Stayed here as part of a spa package. Lovely large room, very clean and comfortable bed. The spa although small is very good. I enjoyed a facial and foot massage which were excellent. The evening meal is a set menu which is included in the spa package. Very small choice but you are allowed to order off the main menu... More
