Reviewed July 18, 2011

Stayed here with wife and our two boys (aged 9 and 10) for one night as we were in town for a show.

It's a typical Novotel where you know pretty much exactly what you're getting.

Clean, fairly comfortable rooms, ideal for a stopover or short break. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast more than adequate.

Very handy location for Chinatown.

Would definitely consider staying again.

We stayed here for two nights when our daughter graduated. I had made two requests - only synthetic pillows as I am allergic to feathers, and a room as close to the lift as possible as I can't walk very far (I always seem to be given a room up at the far end of miles of corridor!) I am pleased to say that the Novotel complied with both of these, and we were happy with our room. Bed was really comfy. The shower was a bit Heath Robinson, and we couldn't figure out how to make the water drain, so we ended up with about a foot of water around our feet. Same problem with the basin drain, although we solved that by removing the plug assembly altogether. My only complaints were that the room was very hastily cleaned and the toiletries were not restocked the second day, so I didn't have enough shower gel (didn't notice until I was in the shower), and also the incredibly expensive breakfast, which others have probably commented on. 13.95 for a Continental breakfast (3.00 more for a cooked breakfast) is shocking - we went to Giovanni's Deli around the corner for breakfast - really lovely people and fresh-cooked nice food for a fraction of the price. Oh, and one thing, the executive room is supposed to come with free internet, but they still tried to charge us for it, and was a huge palaver to have the charge reversed, while our taxi waited outside for ages. So do check the bill!

Room Tip: Executive room not worth the money - the internet is really hard to use, and the coffee maker is onl...

This hotel had everything we needed - we were attending a wedding at a different location - but this hotel was clean, comfortable and well designed. The staff were efficient, polite and friendly and everything went smoothly. There is convenient parking, which, while somewhat expensive, was clean and well lit. Typical Novotel rooms and breakfast. Very comfortable beds. The hotel was quiet in spite of being in the centre of town.

I loved this hotel. The pictures that are shown for the Hotel don't do it justice as the Hotel is lovely! All the staff for very friendly and chatted to a lot of them throughout out stay at the hotel. I would also like to add that the Staff go out of their way to help you with any request that you may have and make you feel welcome. The restaurant in the hotel is gorgeous and would definatly eat there again! The Hotel room itself is lovely, with a nice bathroom, comfy bed and a sofa. Only downside to the room is the seperate toilet - the room that this was placed in was very small and very cramped. I would definaltly recommend this hotel for people to stay in!

Have stayed at the hotel a number of times, staff are always welcoming and helpful, rooms clean and bright and the new bar is far more cosmopolitan and well stocked.

Great location and short walk from the station, will stay here whenever i am in Manchester
