A special birthday weekend made even more so by this hotel. My husband and I stayed a couple of nights and booked our son in for one night and we all thought the hotel was fabulous. Nothing was too much much trouble. The car was parked, check in was instant and cases quickly arrived at our room. The staff were all very polite and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were spotless, very spacious, comfortable and so quiet. You would never have known how close we were to all the shops!! The gym was good and I had several treatments in the spa and both therapists I saw, Vicky and Kim, were excellent. We ate in the bar late the first night and then a group of family and friends joined us in the main restaurant for the second night and none of us could fault any of the food. All in all an extremely successful and enjoyable time was had by all. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay in Manchester and it is the only hotel we would consider now!
