“Central Cottonopolis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

Converted cotton warehouse in the heart of Britain's second city convenient for metro, theatre and opposite City Art Gallery. Quality hotel on human scale, good room but nothing too fancy. Value cooked breakfast but cellar room a little featureless.

Room Tip: Higher floor facing Princess Street

We wanted to get away for a very short break, and this hotel was one of Lastminute.com top secret shenanigans.
The staff were extremely attentive and friendly at every encounter. The hotel room could have done with a bit of a refresh, but perfectly comfortable. The highlight was our evening meal which was absolutely lovely. Not too expensive either. This was followed by one of the best prepared cocktails I've ever had! If you can ignore the tired decoration in your room, we would highly recommend!

Great stay, friendly welcome on arrival - room was ready, despite us being 2 hour early before check in. Gym is basic, but good enough to get in a decent work out.
Post gym cocktails were amazing, some of the best I've ever tasted. Location is next to Canal St. so great location. Best hotel I've stayed in in Manchester and will certainly be back :)

We used tripadviser to find this hotel and we were not disappointed. The hotel was clean, comfortable, staff were excellent, food/drink very good and location great for rail travellers and exploring manchester city centre.
We can definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for an overnight for concert at Phones 4 U Arena.
Nice comfortable stay, a bit late in getting into our room but acceptable
given the fact this hotel is very central and popular. Lovely staff who were
very helpful, needed access to internet and printer in particular for business
which was not available although they offered their own computer and printer at the
check in desk. Room was very spacious and comfortable with large bathroom
made me wish I was there for another night! Didn't have time to eat there but
bar and restaurant facilities looked nice and good variety on menus.
