The bar area looks nice and the view over the south of the city is fantastic but the visit was let down by slow service, poorly mixed and overpriced cocktails and rude staff.After waiting about half an hour for our order to be taken, I asked for some sort of New Orleans themed bourbon cocktail at £14 that came with...

I think its all been said before but a fabulous afternoon tea with fantastic views over the city. Staff were attentive and selection of food was superb with everything complementing everything. Booked as a birthday treat for my wife and we will certainly be returning.

We went on a Saturday evening as we'd just moved to the area. When we arrived, it was very confusing. We had booked in advance and our reservation confirmed, but people were put in front of us, when arriving later, which was annoying. When up there, the place was a mess. The staff member admitted they hadn't had time to... More

Was not expecting much on a packed late Saturday night. Despite being resident at the hotel and booking in advance, we had to queue for 10 minutes. We were just about to give it up as a bad job when our name was called. Inside it was beautiful, buzzing but sensibly controlled with regards to numbers. We had great service,... More

What a view, the view is worth the money alone. We went for afternoon tea and shopping, the afternoon tea provided sandwiches, cakes and champagne, really enjoyed ourselves. Unsure whether it was the best afternoon tea as my wife preferred the midland hotels afternoon tea. Cloud 23 is very expensive for what it is but as a one off I... More

My friends took me for a surprise afternoon tea at Cloud 23 in March. They had booked a table in advance. The afternoon tea itself was very nice with a large selection of drinks and teas available. Views and location were fabulous. The only thing that slightly let it down were the staff..sometimes they didn't seem particularly attentive, for example,... More

Came here for my boyfriends birthday on a Monday evening. I booked in advance so no queuing downstairs. On arrival the room is beautiful and an amazing view. The selection of cocktails wasn't great and they were all a little over priced. We ordered a Winter Warmer shot and it took over 30 minutes to arrive so we cancelled it.... More

We surprised our friend for her hen do at this bar. We had our own little area as we were doing champagne tasting and cocktail making. Worth the money and amazing views of Manchester from the bar. Cocktail making was awesome as there were so many of us we had to split in to groups. Some made the cocktails in... More
