Weekend with my friend concert and shopping

I have stayed in this hotel many times! The location is perfect. I will deffinately stay here the next time I come to stay in Manchester. The only thing I will say against the hotel is that the breakfast is way over priced and therefore go into town to eat !! But this dosnt put me off!

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.

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.

Beautiful Hotel

This is a beautiful hotel, Up there with one of the best ones i've ever stayed. The room was very nice, good size, very welcoming and comforting. Only bad thing i have to say is the main road ir right outside and can here traffic quite clearly. Overall i would say i definately would stay at the Macdonald again.

One night stand - worth every penny

I needed to see my daughter on my way from New York and wanted a good rated hotel without all the hassles of moving around Manchester. Trip from the train station to hotel is just about 3 minutes leisurely stroll. The reception is kind of tacky and the elevators have obviously seen better days. But the customer service blew me away. I came in a wee bit too early for check in but that wasn't a problem at all. I was promptly whisked to my room. If Manchester was cold that day, the smile of the guys at the front desk started an inferno. The room was good with splendid view of whatever I could see. Sleep was comfortable. Room service was fast and decent but I'm not the type for English breakfast though. I will definitely come back and the reception wouldn't be a deterrent although it is somehow shameful that such a grand hotel could look so tacky.

A very very good hotel

I was quite surprised just how good the room was at this hotel. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a stay in Manchester. The only slight downside is that it takes little time figuring out exactly where the hotel is. But, you can easily see it from Manchester Piccadilly station. I will certainly be back here the next time I'm in town.
