The staff are great. But the hotel is badly designed. Two lifts only for a massive hotel just leaves you having two many awkward minutes not looking at the multitudes of other people waiting the eternity for a lift. The corridors are so long to your room it feels like a scene from a sci fi movie just walking to... More

Excellent hotel with professional service with a smile. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Good breakfast selection and service. Second time that we have stayed at the hotel and can not fault it. Will be staying here again.

One of the very best places to stay in Manchester. Ticks all the boxes with comfortable air conditioned spacious rooms, courteous staff, fine dining, internet access, full freeview and gym (only trouble was I was here on work so didn't get the chance to enjoy it as long as I would have preferred!)

We arrived and our room was ready, so it was a straight check in. We went and had some lunch and a couple of drinks in the bar and the food was lovely. I had a hot steak and mustard sandwich and it was delicious. It was cooked exactly as I asked. We didn't have breakfast in our tariff, I... More

Had a nice dinner with my friends in The Scottish Steak Club and was very well looked after by one of the staff members named Harry, who provided a good service & a good sense of humour. A fun night & we will definitely will return!

Been to this hotel many times and always choose when going to Manchester due to the large rooms and customer service. This time wasn't so good and I will be sourcing a new venue for the next trip. First of all on check in we were placed in an accessible room (no idea why) and the room smelled, the bed... More

Very central to the train station. Very clean and comfortable. My first impression was not the best as the card machine was not working and the staff blamed my card not the machine even though the next 2 guests cards declined as well. Scott

This is the second time we have stayed here and we went back because we loved our previous stay. The hotel is impressive and our room was huge with a really comfortable bed and a huge bathroom and 2 toilets. My husband had ordered champagne as a surprise and it arrived just after we had got to our room. As... More
