I booked the Glitz hen package for a group of 17 travelling up from London to Manchester for the weekend. The package included one 10 person penthouse and then other luxury apartments. On the week of arrival I was contacted by the hotel to be informed of how our group would be split. I informed the hen group of accommodation arrangements only to find when we were checking in that this had been changed again; our 10 person penthouse had been split into a 6 and 4. I was a bit disappointed that I had not been informed of this before we arrived at the check in desk, especially as communication to this point had been fantastic. Every time I phoned the hotel to check details everyone I spoke to was so helpful. This is probably the only small disappointment of the stay.
The apartments were well decorated and clean and airy. The base penthouse had been decorated with hen banners and balloons and this was a really nice touch as the group arrived together and we had no time to pre decorate before the bride to be arrived. We were provided with wine as part of our hen package and also complimentary sparkling wine was included. Again, it's things like these and the l'occitane gift bags we were all provided with which all add to the stay.
The apartment is very centrally located with a Tesco express just next door and also cafés nearby for late breakfast/lunch.
I would definitely return to Manchester and definitely recommend the Light to a group who are looking for good value, well located, good standard of apartments. Thanks again to all of the staff at The Light who I spoke to in the run up to our stay.
