“Good Central Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

A good well appointed hotel. Staff helpful and friendly. Rooms clean, comfortable and where I was, quiet. The hotel is modern and 'trendy' in decor. Near to all the Manchester Centre stuff, Bridgewater Hall, Exhibition Centre and such. Good pubs nearby for ale drinkers, Peverill of the Peak, Briton's Defence. Curry house (Swadesh) on the doorstep is a great place for lunch or evening meal. Undergroubd parking for the hotel is available and with a voucher from reception is £16 a night. Overall the hotel is well worth considering if needing a city centre base.

Room and facilities very good, clean and comfortable though no view from bedroom.No free wifi. Bar and lounge not very inviting so would prefer to have a drink outside the hotel. The breakfast was surprisingly very good for the price.

I stay in a lot of hotels for work purposes and will now be making a point of going Novotol where I can. Specifically, the food in Manchester is excellent (would especially recommend 'the Lamb' with the 'sweet potato fries') and the accomodation is immaculately clean and quirky (in a good way) - keep a look out for the 'wave' sinks in the en suite bathrooms. The staff are also polite and responsive without being 'over-rehersed' as is oftern the case in large chain hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for a wave sink!

After reading the reviews I was cautiously optomistic. On arrival was welcomed by the reception staff who swiftly dealt with my reservation. The room was clean and spacious, my only bug was the toilet and sink/shower were in different rooms, great if multiple people, annoying if on your own. The room itself was very quiet.

The most suprising part of my stay was the breakfast. The host showed me to a clean table, took my order of tea and pointed out where the buffet was. There was a good selection of hot and cold food including pastries, fruit, cereals, etc which is good if trying to watch what you eat. By the time I got back to the table my tea was waiting.

Would happily stay there again, location was good and nice comfortable clean room.

We stayed here for 3 nights during the pride celebrations, we have previously stayed in other hotels in the area which were also great however this one exceeded our expectations. There was such a modern feel to the place and the staff were really friendly, rooms were very clean and spacious everything you needed inc mini bar if you dared pay the prices as in every hotel. Breakfast in bed was available which we had one morning...very nice. The restaurant was excellent we only had breakfast though but was the best I've had. Very happy and will be staying again next year.
