Renaissance Manchester City Centre Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed at this hotel with friends last weekend for a hen do and it was very comfortable. Every time I rung down to reception the staff were helpful and friendly, bringing us extra things we needed like buckets of ice to keep the alcohol cold. The location is great because it's right in the city centre - within walking distance of restaurants and bars. I would have liked to have had a mini fridge within the room - but maybe that was the type of room we booked and other rooms may have fridges. One of the lifts wasn't in service when we arrived but it didn't detract from our stay. A couple we met in the lift mentioned that they'd had problems with hot water (not being hot) but we didn't experience that issue.

Spent a week here for business and really enjoyed the stay Super friendly and helpful staff , kind lady even made us a tea whilst we were setting up the training room! Very nice spacious and comfortable room Good buffet breakfast On top of that it’s in a good location for walking to plenty of pubs and restaurants Look forward to next visit Couple of pointers, leave yourself a few extra minutes for the lifts which seem to have been programmed with a strange logic. Secondly , if driving, make sure you go in the hotel car park which is hidden within the NCP one. It is cheaper and more secure

Great location! Right in the heart of the city centre The rooms are spacious and the views of the city are fantastic The beds are very comfy, The rooms are clean, tidy, well maintained and very welcoming

Stayed here for 1 night only - shopping trip for my 11 year olds birthday. Greated by friendliest staff. Speedy check-in with added change without asking for a large room with 2 double beds. Check in guy (newbie) and his wonderful mentor were very welcoming and a pleasure to deal with. Room was very big, comfy beds, clean and well equiped with a modern tv etc. Upon returning to our room at night we discovered the toilet flush not working. As we were going to bed and leaving 1st thing we didn't report it. Unfortunately 11pm that night my daughter came down with a vomiting bug which forced me to ring reception. They sent someone up immediately with keys to a new identfical room and told us not to worrry about packing our stuff as the existing room would stay locked down until we returned the next day. They also brought 7up or my daughter and offered to help in anyway needed. Overall hotel was a bit pricey but guessing its due to location. Well worth the stay due to friendliness of staff, good customer service and overall experience (excluding the bug :o( that is ) No queue at check-out in the morning - a big win in my books also

I stay in Manchester on business at least once a month, right across the city depending on what's available. But this was a pleasure trip and I hadn't stayed here for a least 10 year.. Ok so the hotel is a bit tired outside and in but it doesn't really matter. Rooms are well sized and more than comfortable. Its perfectly located to on Deansagte so puts you in the middle of everything. Price at Easter weekend was very reasonable as well. Really can't fault it and staff were friendly too.

From the outside this hotel looks shabby and outdated but the interior of the public areas is nice so don't be put off by outside. Room was comfortable, clean but showing it's age. Depending on rate this can be good value.

Stayed in this hotel for one night - the best part of the hotel is the friendly staff from receptionist, to bar and finally at departure - everyone very helpful and professional The hotel itself is very good value and is in a super central location to all main areas Room was comfortable and clean and bed super comfy A very pleasant stay

My Mum, sister and I have been staying at this hotel almost every year for the last 10 years, and we wouldn’t stay anywhere else in the city centre. The hotel is in a fabulous location for all the shops and restaurants, and includes good car parking facilities. The rooms are clean and spacious - ours has always had 2 double beds, a sofa and easy chair. The staff are friendly and helpful, meeting our booking requests for a room on a high floor and early check-in. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Myself and my boyfriend spent the night at the Renaissance in a Deluxe King room. We paid £87 via the Expedia website and due to an offer, got our breakfasts included. The hotel is lovely and has a perfect location for a city centre base. Reception staff were helpful and polite and though we didn’t need information about Manchester, being local ourselves, they seemed well I formed and ready to assist with enquiries about the city. In line with other reviews, the rooms are very spacious. The bed was very comfortable (and big!) and we had all the facilities we needed. We were on the fifth floor and enjoyed our view. The bathrooms are dated but clean. We had no issues with water pressure or temperature. There is a wide choice at the breakfast buffet in terms of cereal, breads, fruit and pastries. The vegetarian cooked breakfast options are limited but there are eggs, hash browns, tomatoes, beans and mushrooms - more than enough if you like all of these. We had a really enjoyable night and feel we got very good value.

Good boutique hotel in a good location if you need to be in the city. I had a large suite with a good view of the city. Comfortable although the bathroom was a little outdated but as others have said this wasn't a big issue. Choice of channels on the TV was limited but again not a big deal. Breakfast was reasonable with a decent hotel bar for a late night drink.
