Great weekend break

This hotel is not slap bang in the middle of Manchester but about 5 mins walk away from the main shopping area. Its a great hotel if you can get it at a good price, I paid a bit more but it was a bank holiday Saturday so to be expected! Check in was great, staff were friendly. Room was huge and very quiet with a fantastic bath and very comfy bed with soft pillows! Can recommend this as a good Manchester option, I didn't use the bar or eat in the hotel so can't comment on that. Likewise I didn't get to use the spa.

Lovely Mid-week Break

This is a well-run comfy and clean hotel. The rooms are spacious and well laid out. The hotel was spotless and room service do a great job here. The reception staff were friendly and well presented and attentive. My sister mentioned she would have preferred if there was an option to have a bath- just a heads up for those who prefer to soak. I didn't even notice the lack of a bath, the bathroom was spacious with a large shower. Beds were comfy and the in room heating allowed us to adjust the temperature to our liking. The noise cancelling (triple glazed) windows are very effective we were opposite a train station but didn't hear a anything from outside! Great location too- just wish I had more time to explore.

Relaxing in comfort and style

Stayed here last year on business so suggested it as a venue for a weekend visit to the Christmas market. It was perfect , far enough away to give us peace , close enough to be handy for everything. Rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable. Had a room overlooking the train station but heard nothing but view was fascinating. Only met reception and bar staff and they were excellent -loved every minute of the stay and almost certainly coming back next year.

Excellent base to explore Manchester from

Room was clean and well appointed, with a spectacular view over the city. Bed was comfortable, even if the supplied pillows were too small to be comfy when used singly and too large to use two. Bathroom had large bath and a walk in shower and was well insulated from the bedroom. Supplied iPod dock worked very well and the nespresso machine was a nice touch. Breakfast was excellent - a really impressive range of food, available until a very reasonable 12pm. Only downside was the £30.00 charge for access to the spa. This is really more of a sauna than a spa. There are better facilities available at other Manchester hotels without an additional charge.
