“Flash on the surface but missing excellence.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

When I checked in to my room I found it very strange to see curtains closed behind secondary glazing. I had to stand on a chair to open the secondary glazing and on pulling the curtains back revealed a broken window and view of scaffolding and general junk on the roof by the window. I complained and was given a complimentary upgrade with no fuss and with good humour from the reception staff. This room was on the main road side of the hotel and was nicer, in a loft style kind of way, but incredibly noisy due to the constant traffic and footfall. The room was well appointed but not particularly to my taste - very minimalist and quite masculine feeling. Breakfast was OK but incredibly slow - it took half an hour to get a bowl of porridge.Not good value for money in my opinion.

This is my 2nd stay at the hotel, and although we were only here for the night, it was just as good as the first.

Purely by chance we had the same room as before, and it was just as comfortable! Well appointed bathroom with great products. Lovely thick towels.

Dinner in the cafe grill bar was as good as ever, the service was amazing! We had to be at a concert so ate earlier than usual which was no problem!

The one thing that stays true in this hotel are the staff. I have stayed in numerous hotels all over the world and have to stay this is and remains one of the best!

Invent a reason to get to Manchester if you have to and go stay there!

Room Tip: Ask to upgrade to the next level! Its well worth a few extra pounds. Saying that they are all good!!

Close to the train station and walking distance to the city.

A tired hotel in need of refurbishment.

people are complaining about the old style of the hotel but i think they forget its a grade 2 listed building so the main things cannot be touched, even carpet on the bleeding creeky stairs cannot be fitted even though it would help alot and make the hotel feel alot warmer and would minimise noise, its not everyones cup of tea but the staff are very friendly and would go out of their way to help any guest, people complaining about the beds being too soft???? ok lets put a wooden matress in there then shall we? the beds are made to feel like you are sleeping on a cloud and they certainly do the job without a problem and they are HUGEEE, and on the plus side if the floor you booked for is fully booked you will get a free upgrade to a better floor now coke on how can you argue with that ??

Room rate seemed expensive but, on arrival, we were given an upgrade and then offered a suite for an additional £40. We took the offer and enjoyed a memorable stay in a unique character suite on the 5th floor. Reception staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was OK not exceptional and public rooms could do with freshening. Location is usefully close to Picadilly and centre. Would stay again.

good location, very basic room though and badly finished, not a basic price too match,having read the other reviews I can only say we must have had the only dodgy room in the whole hotel!! had a meal in the fine dining restaurant, chose the grazing menu, we waited an hour for any food and had to ask a member of staff how much longer we were having to wait as it got beyond a joke. The food we had was lovely but don't choose the grazing menu if you have a good appetite as the portions are tiny. Hoped it would be more special than it was and there are definitely nicer hotels in manchester.
