“good staff and great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2011

We stayed for one night when going to the theatre in Manchester. It was a bit chaotic checking in as the system was down however they got there eventually only to find they were showing us into some one else's room! The receptionist dealt with this brilliantly and immediately ungraded us and was very apologetic. The suite was weird in that the bedroom had no window just a curtain with some lighting behind however as we were in the centre of town on a night when Manchester United were playing we were very glad later to be well away from the street noise!
We had breakfast in the hotel and it was truly excellent, freshly cooked, very good quality ingredients and in fact one of the nicest hotel breakfasts we've ever had and we've had a lot of them, both here and abroad.

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in a Superior room, it was very clean and comfortable. The bed was a kings size which you could watch the 32" television from.

The room also had a table and two chairs and a comfy chair and footstall.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, if you had a query they would sort it out immediately. The breakfast choice was so good that you sometimes found it hard to decide what to have. Definitely recommend the full english.

Room Tip: Contact the hotel direct either by email or phone

I've stayed in a number of Macdonald hotels and they always get the basics right; a REALLY comfy bed, top notch bathroom and I love the tea tray. However, I was disappointed during my recent stay in the Manchester Townhouse hotel. Given this is Manchester city centre I would have expected them to put in better double glazing to cut out the noise of traffic and various drunken parties on the streets outside. Also, the room wasn't as clean as I would have hoped - I could see smears on the furniture where a dirty cloth had been used by the cleaners. Also, biscuits were soft (old). All in all, I got a fabulous rate for the room and would definately stay here again, but usually find this chain of hotels takes a little more attention to detail.

We were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff at reception. The hotel has recently been refurbished and so everything looked clean and new. The bedroom was pleasant but a bit cramped, the bed was rather small, and we found quite uncomfortable to sleep in. Despite it being May the radiator was turned to maximum, but we soon fixed that so it had no effect. bathroom was well equipped but the lighting very poor. We had to leave the lights on while we were in the room as they seemed to take ages to brighten and was very dim. The hotel is centrally located, in a lively area and the secondary glazing only kept a certain amount of the noise out, but did not affect us too much. Overall a pleasant stay.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and it is always my first choice. Even during the refit the staff were exceptional and standards are even higher.
It is close to the bars and China town is opposite with some excellent restaurants or if you want to eat in the Bistro has some great dishes to excite your taste buds.

Lovely hotel, within walking distance of the Northern Quarter for shopping, Chinatown across the road but not intrusive. Considering in city centre room nice and quiet. Breakfast very nice, stayed mid-week and not too busy but didn't feel empty. We used our tesco vouchers so was great value! Recommended.
