Stayed here as part of a friends wedding also held in the hotel. The hotel is modern, but a bit quirky, rooms are beautifully laid out, spacious and facilities are superb. Our friends wedding was delivered with genuine care and attention for their special day on the hotels lovely rooftop terrace. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel is in one of the best locations in Manchester, its adjacent to Deansgate, Spinningfeilds, great restaurants, shopping, theatres and numerous attractions. The rooms and interior of this chic town house have special features, and are all individually designed. Its well worth a visit, you won't be dissapointed. We're looking forward to going back there soon.

Loved our stay at Great John Street. Hotel/ room were lovely with a really comfortable bed. Room can be a bit warm but a fan was supplied to help with this. Great location - close to deansgate, spinningfields etc. A bit disappointing we couldn't go on the roof terrace due to an event however we were notified about this beforehand... More

I travel for work regularly so have seen much of the spectrum of upper-mid-range hotels around the country. This one falls into a really nice category for me of a little bit different, and a pleasure to stay. The rooms are quirky, comfortable and very homely. Definitely recommend staying here if you get the opportunity.

Our evening was great with Good Service, Good Food and Nice wines. This was a business meeting which had been arranged by someone else, but we found this new property ideal for what we will look for when taking weekend break in the heart of the city.
