Recent guest reviews

Room cold without heating and noisy with heating on but apart from that the rooms were nicely decorated..Maybe a bit over priced. Staff were lovley and the breakfast was really good...(Very important for overnighters).....Great location , great city....

The staff upon arrival were really friendly and the hotel itself was really clean. The staff also took notice of our requests which was also a nice, personal touch. The rooms are very spacious and modern, however we had some issues with the bathroom light in that it kept flickering, the beds weren’t the comfiest and at night the rooms were very cold. Breakfast choices were really good however the staff weren’t so attentive, we were left on a really small table with plates and cups piling up because no staff were coming to collect them and when we did ask them for anything they seemed to take quite a while. The hotel itself wasn’t so busy at this time. Overall the hotel is nice but not so sure it was worth the price we paid.

Fantastic central Manchester location with handy car park. reception area very smart and front of house staff so friendly and helpful. room lovelly and spacious and the most comfortable pillows ever!! Didn't eat at the hotel but the bar area very relaxing, cool music and lovely cocktails. will definitely return.

Good location and overall staff is very kind and helpful and rooms are comfortable and big. Would need a bit of a touch up and possibly a mini bar or some complementary water in the room. The restaurant is not a place I would recommend for lunch or dinner but only for a drink.

you need to park around the back and not the NCP car park. Ticket machine broke down so had to wait 30mins to get out. Service at reception was very good. Room itself was spacious. Bathroom needs updating as we no longer live in the 80's Lift is very noisy so if you're a light sleeper I wouldn't recommend. TV channels stop working after 5 mins use.

Very friendly and welcoming staff on reception, room was very comfortable very clean and modern. Fantastic location highly recommend for weekend break as so close to the shops, bars and restaurants, will definitely be booking again

This is the second time I stayed in the hotel. The rooms in this hotel is big, good for 4 adults. I am just surprised to find that after couple years this hotel needs a major renovation of their rooms.

I was at a conference, and apparently I was in one of the ‘small’ rooms. Small being enough for a king size bed, a sitting room area, and a study area. It was a lovely room, but I think it must have been next to an air conditioning duct or something, as I had the sound of rushing air all night, and couldn’t find the source. It was a little annoying to discover that free wi fi was only available in the lobby - I do not understand the UK hotel industry’s decision to charge people for wi fi; good high-speed wi fi is cheaply and easily available, and when your target demographic is business travellers and conference-goers, why would you not have free wi fi as standard?

Location - Right next door to hotbed of shopping and restaurants. About .7 miles from Piccadilly. Very easy to get anywhere. One of my favorite hotels to stay when I am in Manchester. Service - Fantastic service. Very attentive. I don't think it was just because I was Platinum Elite. Facility - Very clean, trendy, and well-maintained. Room - I had the pleasure of enjoying an upgrade but rooms were spotlessly clean and very quiet.

I stayed here late August for Manchester Pride. Situated in the heart of Manchester City Centre, it was the perfect location for exploring, heading out, and shopping. The hotel interiors were warm, inviting and homely, and staff were really nice too! My room was very business-esque, large/spacious, clean and quiet. With dark warm colours. I had two king beds (a friend had dropped out) - a large TV, and a great view of the city. The bathroom decor was a bit dated, and let down the whole feel of the entire thing, and the shower/bath could've been a tad cleaner (they were quite rusty) - but the room itself made up for that. Two things let me down the most, the fact that internet wasn't free (rookie error in my opinion) - complimentary internet shouldn't even be questioned in todays hotels, especially at the Renaissance. And the lack of a fridge. Considering my room was the size of a living room, the fact that there was no fridge/mini bar was baffling. Otherwise, everything was great! I had ice sent up when I needed it, the breakfast was superb, and the walls were almost sound proof. It was a lovely stay overall. Pros: Spacious, regal, comfy beds, great views, great location, great breakfast Cons: Bathroom is dated (horrible colour and tiles), internet comes at quite a cost, no mini bar.
