The car park is at Saint James Street and looks more like an alley turning than an actual road but the car park is quite modern.

I booked via Last Minutes and paid £85.00 room only. (Cheaper to use the hotel website as breakfast is included)

As we checked in there were groups of Hen parties also checking in which made for a noisey night. On arrival the room was an odd shape the bed right next to the hotel door, our hotel room next to the door by the lift. The room was small and quite dark only a small window for light. From the otherside of the bed you could barely see the television, hence the odd shape. You could hear everyone arriving on the 6th floor from the the conversations/ or schreeching especially when the hens returned back to their rooms.

The bathroom had a disabled shower access, but was adequate.

We had a drink in the basement bar which is trendy, and ate breakfast in the LG restaurant which was average - coffee was very poor and the overall cost £10.00 per head.

On our way out of the room to check out we noticed a maid outside the other rooms, I peaked in they seemed light and airey why I had got a dreadful room I don't know. Avoid 607 it's noisey dark and small and you will not get a good nights sleep.

On check out they tried to charge me for my room again, which had been pre-paid. Overall I would choose another hotel, on our next stay to Manchester as there are a lot to choose from.

Room Tip: 607 is small, noisey, and an odd shape pick another.

Stayed for 2 days and the location is perfect, close to shops, places to eat, drink and excellent public transport. There's a number 3 bus that takes you to piccadily train station for free, some 5 mins drive away. You wont need a car. The hotel is very clean, good food at reasonable prices. Staff - very helpful and friendly and they work hard to make your stay enjoyable. I would certainly go back and would equally recommend to others.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a short trip to Manchester. This hotel is in a great location - within walking distance to the train station and many shops, resturants, etc.

The receptionists we encountered were polite and helpful, informing us of the deals the resturant had that night. As a resident of the hotel, you recieve 24% off your bill at the resturant, however we chose to go out for dinner so I cannot comment on the food.

The room itself was comfortable,clean and spacious. I liked the large wardrobes, TV that could be rotated and the powerful shower. The pillow was one of the best I have ever slept on! We were on the fifth floor facing a side street, so there was no noise whatsoever from outside. Another thing I liked which helped us get a good night's sleep was the fact that there are lots of doors seperating the rooms so there was no noise from the coridoors.

The room and bathroom were, on first impressions, quite clean, however on closer inspection there was tea stains on the side of the drawers and a hair (not mine!) on the bathroom floor, so I would say they should try not to let the cleaning slip, and maintain what's expected from a 4* hotel.

Overall though, we enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation booking here again.

I stayed here while on business and was very impressed with this hotel. Great location just round the corner from Manchester Art Gallery. Really handy for the shops too. I had an evening meal here and was very impressed with both the quality of food and the service. There was a cocktail bar beside the restaurant which seemed to be very popular with special offers for cocktails. Great atmosphere for anyone looking for a good night out. Breakfast was nicely presented with the best, creamiest scrambled egg I've ever had in a hotel. Normally scrambled eggs can be too solid when they are sitting in heatproof dishes but they got it spot on. I would definitely stay here again either as a business trip or for a minibreak with family or friends. Top marks for all staff too-very helpful and a credit to the hotel.
