Booked into the hotel for our daughters wedding last weekend (17th Feb) and from the booking we could tell that the whole experience was going to be first class. Booking was easy, the receptionist was very helpful. We arrived on the Friday afternoon and the staff couldn't do enough for us. They looked after the bags, the numerous boxes of...

I stayed here on Friday as a surprise for my boyfriend who had been working away and landed Friday afternoon. I had emailed regarding prices etc and the staff were very helpful, even when I was ringing to enquire exactly which rooms were available (each one is different in the room types, thank god for trip advisor photos!) as we...

I booked into this hotel as a surprise for my girlfriend for Valentines Day and it surpassed all expectations. Arriving shortly after a helicopter ride, the hotel could have been overshadowed but the day continued to get better. The sound of Classic FM on the radio as we entered the room was a lovely touch and the room itself was...

We booked this hotel completely last minute and were therefore, so unprepared. It was a very precious night away for me and my husband, escaping for the first time in 3 years from the stresses of life with kids under 5. Nothing was too much for the staff from organising a dinner reservation to bringing us toothpaste. We were just...

Just held my dads 70th birthday party here and can't recommend the venue highly enough. I've also held a previous event here and both times the service has been excellent. The staff are so attentive and helpful. Food is lovely and a beautiful hotel to bring people too. Will definitely be coming back here again

My second stay and it didn't disappoint. Whenever we travel to Manchester we always check availability at Great John Street. It is different and has a real sense of class. The converted school rooms have great features. This time we were put in one of the Opus suites on a rainy evening. We felt cosy and spoiled both before and...
