We stayed in the Victoria and Albert for one night in September 2013. The staff were professional throughout and check in was complete in less than two minutes. Arrived early morning before check in but leaving our bags with the concierge was no issue and allowed us to explore Manchester without having to lug our baggage.
This is a converted warehouse and so has lots of character - including low ceilings which means the shower head is at neck height. Beds amazingly comfortable.
Breakfast was good, although no sign of poached egg. Also as a vegetarian it was disappointing to see that veggie sausages were not offered. We did ask our waiter however he just replied that it was all self service.
A hotel pitching itself at this quality really should have a pool and gym in house, avoiding the walk up the road! With so many great restaurants in Manchester we did not even consider dining at the hotel.
Area felt safe, and the free city centre bus (route 2) stops as the museum of science and industry which is a short walk away. Would return if price is right.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in the vibrant Manchester city centre on the banks of the River Irwell, the Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel in England exudes a historical charm. Our cozy 4-star Manchester hotel's location across from Granada Television Studios is ideal, as guests enjoy a short and pleasant stroll to the Opera House, Spinningfields area, and Palace Theatre. Since our Manchester city center hotel's origin was a warehouse built in 1844, you will find many authentic details in our guest rooms including exposed brick and oak beams. Our £3 million renovation in 2014 highlights the old architecture and new contemporary flair, along with modern comforts and services. ... more less
