Just got back from second visit to The Midland in Manchester - this time we stayed two nights (Friday and Saturday). We were given a very warm welcome and although we arrived early we could leave our bags with the concierge while we went shopping. We asked for two twin-bedded rooms and they were very big - two double beds in both rooms - which were very comfortable (pillows were very good) and they had left champagne and chocolates in both rooms as an added extra. The staff were all very polite and extremely helpful - probably some of the best-mannered hotel employees I have met. The rooms were very quiet, so despite being in a vibrant city, I had a fantastic night's sleep each night. The breakfast was good - given the high volume of visitors at the weekend, the buffet was replenshed quickly. We tried out the swimming pool, which was quite small, and the sauna, which was fine. The lobby areas were very clean and relaxing. There was no "how to" manual in the room, but when I called Guest services, they explained everything was on the TV - so I was able to look at room service menus, and checking out time through the TV. The bathroom was very clean and the Hans Grohe shower was very good - shampoo, conditioner and shower/bath gel provided. I have already booked to stay here again in June. The hotel offers a number of special deals which if you book in advance make a big difference. A lovely weekend and a gorgeous hotel.
