First of all id like to say thanks for the laughs. Some very very funny comments regarding the angles of the floors:)))) I had a pleasant enough stay here. bath,shower,tv worked. all lights worked. tea/coffee. Found the staff pleasant and helpful. thought the bar etc was nice enough. great location. loads of cheap overnight parking. The worst thing was the matress, very uncomfortable. The noise of slamming doors and squeeky flooring was bit bad!!! was ok for a night..Just.

We just stayed for 2 nights for a hen party and the Mitre was perfect. Location is excellent and yes, the rooms are basic but for the price you can't complain.
The staff were all so friendly and very accommodating. Special shout outs to Tommo, Debbie and Rob!

Not sure what to say. In terms of positives- Great location and good to go out in the centre of manchester...interesting that this is called a boutique hotel!!nice 'punch holes' in the bathroom door! Carpets with burn holes in and coming away at the walls. If you are just looking for a place to sleep then this is fine...

This is the first time I've had so many negatives with a hotel but first I'll start with the positives. Great location right in the centre and near good shops, clean beds with comfy mattresses, modern decor even though the building it's self is old, breakfast was ok, nice sausages. Staff very friendly.
Now the negatives. Our room had no tv, telephone or toilet/ensuite. When the tv issue was raised, the staff member was surprised and wondered where it had gone to. We were on the top floor so taking the suitcases all the way up the stairs was hard work. The shared toilet was very unpleasant with no heating, shabby showers and marks all down the walls. No paper towels or anything to dry your hands on when you'd been in there. You had to remember to take your room towel in with you...which I forgot to do every time. No mirror in one of the bathrooms. And in our room there was only a small mirror which was miles away from the plug, so hairdryers and straightners didn't reach the mirror.
The curtains were moving around when I woke up because of the draughts through the window.
There was blood on the handrail on the stairs as we went down for breakfast and it was still there as we checked out. Health and safety issue there.
If you just want a place to lay your head with no great expectations..then it's ok. If you want a lovely hotel experience...which you could get at the same price...then book somewhere else.

Had a very unpleasant stay in this poor excuse for a hotel. Room was disgusting, staff were rude...some of the rudest I have ever come across and the food was absolutely shocking! Drinks are also very over priced. The mitre should be paying people to stay there! Don't have a single good thing to say about the place!

The room was very basic and not particularly clean, there were also small issues such as the remote to the television not working. The shared bathroom areas were not clean at all, there was no toilet roll in one of them and used soap in the bottom of the shower!
The hotel is very noisy, every step you make the floorboards creak and you can hear every other guest walking around. The floors are also on really strange angles making it difficult to walk around, especially when carrying a suitcase! One of my biggest issues was that If you are on the top floor the wifi does not reach! This was particularly annoying as I had work emails to answer and had to sit in the reception area to do this.
The staff who checked me in and was there on an evening was lovely, however the girl who worked on the mornings was rude and unfriendly. I won't be staying here again.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else...

The hotel is within walking distance to the city centre and it is convenient to the Arena. The breakfast was average and the person serving was polite.

However, our stay was awful. The room had no heating and the staff was very rude and unhelpful.There was no solution to the heating problem, we were told the heating was not working and there was nothing they could do about it. The toilet was not stable, it moved when you sat on it. The tap on the face basin was also loose and spin around when you tried opening it. The room had no table/desk and no lamp. The TV remote was attached to a very short cord, hence you has to stay in a certain place to see the TV. The floors were squeaky.

Room Tip: The top floor maybe because the entire floors are very squeaky.
