This is a review of the Exchange Bar which is in the MacDonald, Manchester Hotel. I was staying in the hotel for work for 5 nights and on 3 nights I was served by Zoe one of the waitresses in the bar. Zoe was fantastic, providing great service, always cheery and happy to provide advice when I asked about places...

Within walking distance of Piccadilly railway station, although no signs. Exit to Fairfax Street and cross the road. Large corporate hotel. We were given a room adapted for people with disability, although we are not disabled. Not the best bathroom layout for walking guests - couldn't easily have a shower because the chair was in the way. The sink was...

The staff were friendly and helpful. Location was perfect and is close to the mainline station. The rooms were lovely. Nice , big, clean and comfortable. There were 4 of us so we asked for our two rooms to have connecting doors which they kindly accommodated. The spa was much smaller than I'd imagined but still ok for facility. However,...

We stayed here Saturday 14th prior to going to Football on Sunday. A very long queue & 20min wait to check in by the draughty door was not the best of starts. Also very difficult to find the car park as sat nav sends you to front of hotel which you can't access from main road. Need to input station...

Stayed there for a night with a friend. We had a great comfortable twin room. Room was of good size. Within a walking distance of Piccadilly station and the city. Nice atmosphere at hotel bar and good service. We had dinner at the restaurant and we were both really happy with our steaks. Sadly one lift was out of order...

I've visited the hotel on several occasions on visits to Manchester and every time it's impressed the rooms are clean and fancy, the beds provide an unreal sleep and the spa services in the morning get you ready for the days activities all in all highly recommended to anybody staying over in Manchester

It looked as though we were placed in a disabled room which ment it was very spacious. The room was clean and i can't say anything negative about the room/hotel itself. However, their private car park was quite expensive. For 24hrs, it cost £20. We were reluctant to pay this but because we were not familiar with the area, we...

So I stayed at your hotel last night. It took about 15 minutes maybe more to get checked in. Only one lift working so that was more time I had wait around. Got to my room and yes the room was lovely. It was clean. So as it was an occasion to go out with my friends I wanted to...

I stayed here on business and have to say that the whole experience was a positive one. from the moment I checked in we were given first class service with a smile. Everyone we came into contact with looked genuinely happy to be there, which in turn made our stay that bit more special. Special praise to Maria who served...
