My partner and I stayed at this hotel after booking a last minute night in Manchester due to changed plans. We have stayed in a number of hotels in the city and although we have been previously spoilt for choice regarding locations (having stayed at hotels facing onto Piccadilly Gardens) this is still a great location in the city centre.
The hotel itself is very comfortable and felt modern inside. The lifts are slightly awkward to use with a keycard system and at busy times you could be waiting a while. Staff were standardly friendly, nothing which really stood out. The only negative of the stay was the very limited space in the restaurant area, which resulted in people having to take their trays of breakfast to their room or indeed people hovering over your table waiting for someone to leave. The queue for food was also quite unacceptable; obviously you expect to wait a little time on a Sunday morning right before Christmas but the breakfast/restaurant area really isn't fit for purpose.
Overall it was an enjoyable stay and although we would use it again, we would definately investigate other options in the city before booking again.
