“Good Novotel, I stayed during the refurb which let it down”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2011

Rooms are ok, location is superb. But I stayed in jan 2011 during the refurb and this seemed to disrupt everything from checking in to the nasty breakfast that was served.

I would prob stay here again but would make sure it is back up to the general Novotel standards

Well-appointed hotel fairly centrally located in Manchester, next to an Ibis and within walking distance of bars and restaurants as well as University buildings. Large comfortable room with plenty of storage and a good-sized bathroom with bath/shower. I had room service, as part of the restaurant appeared to be being refurbished although there were several diners there. Food was fine. Internet charges at Accor hotels are puzzlingly high when so many places now provide free wifi. But otherwise, this is a good mid-range choice.

A fun stay if such a thing can be said of a week in week out location
The rebuild of the public areas has refreshed the hotel well - this location is ideal if you want to wander out to discover manchester with china town right on your doorstep ,and the tram to other locations for work .The 4th floor gym isnt to bad either - though the instructions for equipment could be more obvious

Mark and the team keep kept the service flowing through out the upgrade great service somehow

Overall an effective efficent place to stay for the price. though parking can be a chore as is paying for the internet

First of all, I got booked this room after stumbling over a half price sale, meaning I paid £58 for a Junior Suite. The room was large, clean, luxurious and very modern.

The receptionist was very helpful. Parking is available underneath the hotel and you get a discount.

The location is great. The gay village is less than 5 minutes walk and picadilly / the main shopping area is about 10 minutes walk.

I would like to point out that there were refurbishment works going on in the main foyer, but the disruption was minimal and we never heard any noise during our stay.

I couldn't fault it and we had a great time in Manchster.

Booked a room as a Top Secret Hotel from lastminute to stay one night in Manchester. The room was immaculately clean, comfortable, quiet; bathroom was sparkling clean and in perfect working order. Everything was great apart from... If you travel in a car (as we did) that can make your stay a pure nightmare: diversions made it really difficult to find the place, neighbouring parking charged us £19 for overnight stay. But apart from that everything was great. So, high marks for everything but location.
