Stayed here on 20th December with my husband and 5 year old son. The car park is round the corner but easy to find and easy to park and only £8.50 so for City Centre Manchester this is a bargain! Walked into the entrance and my son stood at the bottom of the huge Christmas Tree and was just awestruck! It was like Christmas many years ago in the most stunning reception area. Check in was quick and easy and our room, well, some people have complained about the hotel looking tired and dated - it is an old Victorian Building, the architecture is amazing - the carpet in reception is old and frayed, yet fabulous and adds to the whole feel of such an amazing old building. Now to our room, it was fabulous - room 260 - with a 5 year old, straight out of the lift and ahead and in we went - two double beds, a single bed, two chairs, a table, the tv, kettle, iron, trouser press, desk, phone, suitcase carrier - but the best thing by far was the enormous ceiling, the old tiles, the cosy feel and even the noise from the trains passing by the windows - it is a City Centre Hotel so noise should be expected but we loved it! Room service were brilliant, we ordered pizza for our 5 year old from the menu and I asked if they could make it as "plain" as possible as it was for a child - it arrived 25 minutes later and the gentleman advised me that they had decided to half the pizza, add some chips and add a pot of ketchup - thank you went down a storm, I am just sorry we spent all our cash at the Christmas Markets and could not have given you a tip! We woke at 8am, lazed around, went for breakfast, again lovely nothing to complain about - other than rude guests who were almost lying flat in their chairs and did not want to move, not the hotels fault and I take my hat off to the staff who deal very politely with such people! Ate our lovely breakfast, packed our bags and went to check out. The reception girl was training but was very polite and we were dealt with very quickly. All in all a fabulous experience and my son asked me tonight why I had not booked for longer because he loved his "new room in the hotel". We have decided to make it a family tradition.
