Visited the hotel on a business trip. I was very kindly upgraded to a suite which was beautiful. However what struck me most was the incredibly friendly, helpful & attentive service. Would definitely stay again & recommend if you are staying in Central Manchester.

The guest room was perfectly adequate. Very spacious and plenty of wardrobe space. I do not usually use a bath, only a shower. On this occasion I did and there was plenty of room. Don't worry ! You will enjoy your stay.
