Stayed here for two nights with my family just after Christmas. Very pleased overall. Hotel is in a great location right in middle of city. Check in was very quick and staff could not have been more helpful. We had two rooms both of which were very nice. Only issue we had was that there was a lot of loud music playing from the function rooms below so if you are staying at weekend don't book a room on floors two or three as otherwise it may take you a while to get to sleep. In fairness when I mentioned it the hotel dealt with it really well so no complaints.

If I had a criticism I would say that the food is not five star standard, especially the breakfast which could be improved by more fresh fruit and a wider choice of slightly healthier offerings.

Dear bambergfan,

Thank you for taking the time to review The Midland. To be fair the Midland is a four star property although we try always to deliver to a five star standard. We serve daily at least 4 different types of fresh fruit (segmented or in bowls for guests convenience) plus bowls of fresh fruit on our cold buffet as you would expect so as with your views on what to offer as a more healthier option please feel free to get in touch as I can't think of too much more that we are missing that we could offer.

That said thanks so much for all your feedback and please be assured that were you have seen an opportunity for us to improve we are already working on matters.

Kind regards

Once again, the Midland excelled itself with a fantastic 2 night stay. New Years Eve in the French Restaurant, superb food. This is our third stay and found all the ambience that you would expect from the Midland Hotel Manchester. We will be booking again very soon.

This was our second stay at this hotel. Our first some 12 months ago was when going to a show. The stay this time was as good if not better. The room was clean and modern with all amenities required. The staff were friendly and very approachable. This is a Hotel I will revisit soon our stay was relaxing and just what was needed. Thank you Midland staff.

A once grand hotel now pushed firmly in mediocrity. Rooms used to be special, now they could be from any 3/4 star chain hotel. Very much pile it high and sell it cheap. What a shame, hopefully one day it will be taken over by soneone willing to put it back where it should be

My son and I went to Manchester on a weekend break for his 18th birthday. From the moment we checked in to The Midland, we received great service from Carlo Petza - getting an early check-in at 10 was no problem. Our twin room was clean and comfortable, just what we were after and breakfast was superb - my son declared it the best breakfast he's ever had! All the staff we encountered were helpful and polite and the concierge had great local knowledge. Five minute walk from Oxford Road station, with St Peters Square (tram stop) just opposite the hotel. The hotel's impressive ambiance was complemented by a great pianist. Look forward to our next stay...

Had a really enjoyable stay again at The Midland as part of a Christmas Party group.

Our car was parked up for us with minimal fuss, check-in took a bit longer than i'd of expected as there were only 2 people on the desks. The room was nice, clean and functional (the room had a trouser press).

The food was very nice (although the portions could of been slightly more generous), the service was great too.

The room was facing away from the street so there were no noise issues and the breakfast was very good.

I'd be happy to return again next year.

We stayed here on New Years Eve 2012 and attended their Black and White Ball. It was fabulous and the staff simply couldn't do enough to help. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Beautiful surroundings / decor. Lovely room. Lovely food. Lovely people. Great entertainment. Price wise - not cheap but felt it was worth every penny and great value for money. Would go there again. Thanks for a great night's entertainment.
