Ideal location for a weekend break

A large quiet room with ample facilities for our 1 night stay.Staff very friendly. I just felt it was a bit jaded, not sure anything in the decor has changed in the 10 yrs since last stay.

Ideal for weekend break

Had two nights at the Arora, perfect location for getting out and about in Manchester. Near to a tram stop should you need it. Rooms were big enough to accommodate two double beds, nice bathroom, large towels, clean and quiet, no problems sleeping..breakfast choice was reasonable, pre order the day before, it's cheaper then. Staff at reception and front of house all friendly and helpful. Very reasonably priced for a weekend stay and would be happy to stay again.

Xmas break

Great central location. Rooms are starting to feel dated and ciuld do with updating soon to feel contemporary on a par with other Manchester hotels but they are Clean with good amenities. Not great value unless you get a deal though and missing that somwthing special that you get at other Arora hotels such as Arora Heathrow airport.

Great Hotel

Wife and I stayed in this hotel when visiting Manchester for a family graduation. Great location near to town hall, China town and shopping. The hotel bar downstairs was excellent and did some really good cocktails. The staff were very friendly and professional.

Perfect City Centre Hotel

The Arora is unusual. It is big enough to do the job, yet small enough to retain personal service. Beyond that, it's the only city centre hotel in the UK I have ever experienced where every member of staff smiled, was helpful, and did their job perfectly. This is quite an amazing accolade! I didn't use the restuarant but the bar service was really good, even giving a free tasting of one product.
