I stay in the Novotel in Manchester City Centre when on business in Manchester. The location is good, just off one of the main streets and is quiet. The hotel is newish and the rooms are in god condition and cleaned to a high standard.
The £10 room upgrade is excellent value if it's available. The staff are friendly throughout. Breakfast is to a good standard with plenty of choice with the resturant clean and spacious.
Highly recommended

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back which are more quiet facing backstreets!

Good location close to Chinatown and a 10 minute walk to the centre

I travel to Manchester for work every year, and normally stay at the Hilton. Due to there being a home match on the prices were doubled so I was able to get two nights in the Novotel for the price of one in the Hilton. i therefore decided, as an Accor Club Gold member to give it a go.

From start to finish it was OK, but absolutely nothing special. At check-in the employee forgot to offer me the Gold benefits (free drink voucher). I asked if I had been given the space-available room upgrade (another perk) and was told that I had. When I got to the room I hadn't, so basically the check-in staff lied to me.

The room itself was OK - normal Novotel standard. Odd choice of TV channels and no Radio 4 on the radio stations. The free broadband was terribly slow.

Breakfast was the highlight of the stay - friendly and efficient staff, and good food.

I was late for my meeting due to the queue at check-out. When I asked why there wasn't a priority line for Accor Club Gold/Platinum guests despite there being a sign saying there was, I just got a shrug of the shoulders. Either remove the sign or have two queues!

If there was a 40% off sale again I'd consider it, but I won't be rushing back.

Just returned from a 5 day stay on a room only basis. We booked a Superior Room which indeed was spacious and had very good facilities. The bed,particularly, was very comfortable and gave us both a good nights sleep but be warned Manchester is never going to be that quiet. My only gripe is with the bathroom (and I've said this on previous hotel reviews) which was was with the shower over the tub arrangement. This time the taps/shower unit were located on the side of the bath which gave you even less room to move around in - curious arrangement.

I can't comment on the breakfast as even the pre-booking offer on arrival seemed a trifle expensive - plenty of places close by including the Coffee Chains (we found a brilliant Costa in Princess Street which did us proud). For those wanting a more substantial start to their day there is a Wetherspoons on the way!!

Would definitely return to this hotel.

The hotel was fantastic. We were over for a match. There was 7 of us staying in the hotel. On arrival the receptionist was very good. The rooms were great. We ate in the bar before we went to the match. The waiter was great, the food was excellent. Great value for money. I have to say the kids area is great. The kids loved it. It was very central to the city. On checkout was had time before our flight. Left our luggage in luggage room. The receptionist was very helpful. When ever we are over again will definitely be staying there again.
