“Very charming hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Stayed here for two nights for a work conference - excellent staff, the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, characterful rooms with low beams and exposed brickwork, great breakfast and dining room... the list of positives goes on. The rooms were really lovely and charming although the low ceilings made having a shower a slight challenge (and I'm only 5 ft 6)! Not perfect - the room was a bit draughty and noise insulation not good - could hear next door's TV and hairdryer; I sleep with ear plugs at night so can't comment on any noise at night - but all in all a lovely hotel which I'd heartily recommend.

Stayed her with family for a weekend break. Numerous positives : Level of Customer service was second to none. Hotel is smaller than most giving a "family feel", Hotel has been symatheically renovated with exposed brickwork, timber ceilings & iron work exposed to offer a glimpse of the hotels previous life. Bar area is spacious with river views. Large good quality beds allow for a decent nights sleep. Hotel being approx 5 minutes walk to the shopping areas. All in all excellent.

Room Tip: 1) Ask for a room facing the river, you get a decent view & avoid any road noise. 2) Hotel is a...

Stayed here again due to a work function end of November. We got a much better room than during our previous stay and I did manage to get to sleep this time in the really comfy bed. I was awakened very very early hours by the sound of traffic reversing outside and then other guests one by one waking and flushing lavatories, closing wardrobe doors and room doors which can be annoying.
On the whole the hotel areas ie the function rooms, bar and the breakfast area are welcoming and the whole hotel is decorated nicely, the only problem is the lack of soundproofing and for me a 4 star hotel should really have an onsite pool and leisure facilities. I know you can use the Bannatynes in Manchester but its not exactly next door.
Again i wish their was a 3.5 I could use as 3 seems a bit low but 4 seems too high.

Stayed here for a business meeting followed by a meal in restaurant and overnight. Excellent service and staff, really good location just 5 mins walk from the city centre. Good price. I've stayed in a number of Manchester city centre hotels and this is the best by far. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here for one night after a night out in Manchester. The building is quite interesting, a converted warehouse and our room was a bit more characterful than some hotels. The staff were fine and we had a good night's sleep.
It is a short walk from the centre but this does mean you are not in the noisy main area.

I wanted somewhere a bit special to take my wife for a meal on her seventieth birthday. I booked a table and mentioned the occasion.

On arrival we had a drink in the lounge bar with the head waiter wishing my wife a happy birthday, on being shown to our table there was a birthday card from all the staff wishing her a happy birthday. We had an excellent meal and the final touch was her dessert which came with three lit candles and happy birthday piped in chocolate on the plate.

These little touches made it a very memorable night. We had a nice table overlooking the river, all the staff were extremely friendly and made a good night great. We shall certainly recommend the V&A to all our friends.
