A rare find to stay in a city hotel like this with individual charm but very modern on a large scale. When we visit manchester we normally stay in a Hilton or mercure where all the rooms are very much the same so this was a very nice touch. We really loved the main bar area too

We just had our wedding at GJS . From our first meeting with their wedding manager to the day of our marriage everything was fab. Our special day was overshadowed by current world problems however the staff made our stay at the hotel and the wedding itself amazing and unforgettable. The food at our wedding breakfast was gorgeous and all our guests loved it. Breakfast was lovely too. We really recommend this hotel!
