Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Stayed here for a night on business last week and was really impressed with the hotel. Great location in the centre of Manchester, valet parking takes away all the stress of trying to find somewhere to park, very helpful reception and a fantastic, luxury bedroom. I would definitely recommend this hotel and shall be returning on my next trip to Manchester when I will hopefully have time to try the hot tub on roof toop terrace!

What a lovely way to spend a couple of hours away from the hubbub of a pre-Christmas afternoon in Manchester City Centre. I had the gentleman's version (a great idea), which consisted of a tasty, well presented selection of mini cheese burger, fish and chips, chicken and leek pie, prawn dumpling and basket of fries, followed by cheese and crackers and a brownie with Baileys ice cream. My partner enjoyed the ladies version, which was a fine selection of sandwiches, followed by a range of cakes and scones with jam and cream. The option is there to top it off with either a cocktail or champagne should you wish to do so. Service was friendly and obliging throughout and all in all we enjoyed a thoroughly pleasant afternoon in what is a delightful hotel with a chilled, relaxing atmosphere. Make that bit of effort to find Great John Street, you will not be disappointed

Spacious room, lovely bathroom on mezzanine, bed v comfortable. Had to turn on radiators to warm up the room on arrival, and left them on too long - just need to watch the temperature, Room service efficient, and I enjoyed the lamb burger, Breakfast also good, with eggs cooked to order rather than left on hotplate, I didn't get to the rooftop hot tub - will go prepared next time, Overall, great place and good value

Really nice hotel with excellent rooms and they even park your car for you! Had a wonderful time and will be looking to book here again without a doubt. Nice breakfast and the rooms really can't be faulted. The staff are also very nice and polite indeed.

My second stay in a stylish and well appointed Eclectic hotel room.
The bed was sumptuous, large and very comfortable with gorgeous linen.
A great location not far from the main streets in Manchester the hotel affords a cosy, stylish atmosphere, yet it is in a quiet back street location. It also has great facilities for single visitors like myself or parties.
Staff were attentive and courteous.

Wow! We have just been for afternoon tea for four at the Great John Street Hotel and were impressed by the food (presentation was exquisite, huge amounts of luscious chocolate cakes, scones and fresh bread sandwiches, copious replenishments of tea and coffee), the staff (attention to detail above and beyond expectation) and the setting (delightful period reception room off the bar area). We can't recommend it enough - best afternoon tea in Manchester (far superior to what we had a few weeks ago at another, supposedly first class venue, that wasn't, which proves you don't have to be on the 23rd floor to provide a great tea.

We booked the head masters office for a family celebration and had afternoon tea for 16 people. The room was very stylish and it was great to have privacy as we were celebrating a very special occasion. Afternoon tea was great and good value but we did ask for more sandwiches. The hotel is very stylish and has a very homely feel. I would recommend this hotel but drinks are a little expensive my bar bill was £400 but worth it. I would definitely have an event here and Natalie the manager was fantastic.
