Hi NFMac and anyone else interested in replying !!
I address this to NFMac by name because he (you) (and Thomofthenorth also) gave me some very good pointers last year for my annual December trip to Manchester....
Well, it's nearly that time of year again so I am back looking for some advice for our (a couple) 4 day break...
Firstly and very disappointing I must say is that unlike previous years, we will not be able to stay in the Midland as it is fully booked out for our trip dates.
Whilst this is bad news, I have gone ahead and booked the Arora so hopefully this is an ok hotel ?? I know it's fairly central but would appreciate any feedback on the area it's in etc..
Also, whilst staying in the Arora, I decided to treat myself and herself to a Saturday evening meal in Obsidian. What are the views on this choice. Is it a good restaurant?
I know it's probably expensive but hopefully it's worth it?
The rough plan is EastzEast again (we really liked this place last year) for Indian, Yang Sing for Chinatown on the Sunday night and something like either the Gaucho Grill or Grill on the Alley for another night. What does that sound like?
Has anyone any feedback on either the Gaucho Grill or Grill on the Alley and what would be the thoughts on the better one to book (if either)?
That leaves one night unaccounted for, so recommendations please on the basis of the above decisions for the other nights!!
Any other recommendations re things to do (besides the shopping, Christmas Mkts etc) would also be appreciated.
