Previously ate here which was excellent and again as a group the food was superb. This time I stayed and it was a huge disappointment. Check in ok. Room was a quirky mezzanine room with very narrow stairs up to room and en suite. Downstairs a small lounge and desk. Desk pretty useless to work on because glass top confuses... More

We stayed at great John street hotel as we was attending a wedding there. Even though it's a little more than you would pay for a hotel in Manchester it is definetly worth paying the extra. The rooms are large and spacious, the ultimate in luxury, breakfast was delicious too. The whole experience added to the overall wonderful day

We got married here in November last year and it was a fantastic day. We did not want a traditional, bog standard, function room wedding hotel and this place ticked all the boxes in being a chic city centre boutique hotel. This was the first venue we looked at and we fell in love with it. Nowhere else could compare.... More

Add to that an option for the kids and the selection potentially on offer for the ladies and I'm sold. But does Great Johns Street Gentleman's Afternoon tea deliver, oh my does it deliver.

Daughter picked this venue for her wedding, ceremony and reception, and it was fabulous. The hotel itself is an old school house and the rooms and corridors are named as such.
