“Fab hotel”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We stayed there on recent trip to Manchester, stayed at The Midlands in the centre of the city. Loved the spacious reception area and the decor. The room was spotless, clean, well furnished and most importantly a comfortable bed. Decent breakfast the next morning, lovely friendly smiley staff. They must love working there (we stayed at one their sister hotels in Cheltenham a few months back, and the staff there were equally friendly and happy - what great staff training). My only niggle here is, like all city centre hotels, there's no on site parking, so the overnight stay at the nearby NCP did crank up the cost.

Went for my 50th birthday with friends, and we will revisit in the future. The hotel is ideally located between theatres, restaurants, and shops. The rooms were very spacious, clean and modern; you have full control of temperature which is a must for me. Breakfast was a joy, cooked properly and plenty of choice should you prefer continental. The staff are very attentive and give a warm welcome when approached. Overall excellent value for money.

We held our wedding reception at The Midland Hotel in March and I couldn't recommend the hotel enough! The staff, the service and the whole experience was fantastic from beginning to end, we were treated like royalty, and so were all our guests. For a reception of 110 people I couldn't have wished for a better day, everyone has remarked that the service was very personal. If you are thinking about holding a wedding reception or any type of event in Manchester City centre, then you will not go wrong with The Midland.

All the guests which stayed over at the hotel had fantastic rooms, at a very reasonable price, and all have said what a fantastic time they had.

In order to enjoy a recent theatre trip we decided to have a night stop over and chose to stay at The Midland as it was close to the theatre and had a good bed and breakfast deal on. Arriving by train it was a short walk from the station and we entered the grand foyer to be greeted by the concierge. Our room was warm and sumptuous and spotlessly clean. We slept well inspite of occasional police sirens flying by outside. Breakfast was excellent and staff were efficient and friendly. I would certainly stay here again when next visiting the theatre.

Although in the middle of Manchester this hotel is very quiet, the bed was more than comfortable and room service was good quality and the size of the portions is generous.
If you have business in the centre of Manchester this is an excellent place to stay with the convention centre just round the corner, but book early as the following night I stayed it was fully booked.
Buffet breakfast was good with a fair choice, rate I paid was more than reasonable.

Room Tip: Superior room a must
