Good option

The apartment was clean, spacious and well situated.The decor, fittings and furnishing were looking a little tired. For a 5 star apartment one would have thought these things would have been picked up. There was no cafetiere or equivalent available either. On the first night there were some extremely noisy guests in a nearby apartment with music playing until 5am! The staff were helpful in trying to stop this but with little succes. The second night was nice and quiet. Overall the apartment was an ideal option for our stay. We were unfortunate I think with the first night noise.

Amazing - had everything!

Was in Manchester for work, this had everything and more!! The apartment was a shock, it was better than i'd expected so great value for money! The bath robes and other bits i was left orange juice milk cereal, was also brilliant and after a long day when i'd forgotten to pop to the shop, was a lifesaver! The location is great and the one staff member I'd met was really super friendly and loaned me his brolly as well as recommending a visit to a perfect restaurant called Alberts shed! My stay was comfortable and faultless!!

lovely

Great place to stay in the city. Apartment was clean throughout, bedrooms were comfy and apartment kitchen was kitted out with all you need to cook. Only small criticism would be the TV was a bit limited (haven't they heard of freeview?) and additional charges for wifi use which oi don't think was made clear at time of booking.

Very good, but the bedroom was small and claustrophobic with no ventilation. It really needs air conditioning!!!
