Reviewed 3 April 2014

Stayed for just the one night with my mother, as part of a birthday treat, the hotel is ideally located for Piccadilly Train Station, being about 200 yards away (turn right out of the train station and you can’t miss it).

We had a twin room, the bed was one of the comfiest hotel beds I have ever slept in and the room was lovely, there are complementary toiletries which were very nice, especially the soap, gorgeous! The room was spotlessly clean with a lovely bath and plenty of space, adequate clothes hanging area and the usual kettle etc. plenty of coffee and tea and some biscuits which were nice. The hotel is on a main road but I wasn’t disturbed by any traffic noise during the night.
We were staying on a DBB basis which wasn’t’ the best value for money really as the allowance in the restaurant was only about £12 I think, however, the cocktails were divine and the meal we had was lovely, the staff were very helpful and we were served promptly.

Breakfast was an entirely different experience (served in the same restaurant), the breakfast waiting staff could really do with a couple of lessons from the night waiting staff, the waitresses’ at breakfast didn’t seem to know how to wait tables, pretty much everything was too much trouble for them as all they were interested in was standing around talking to each other. I’m so glad this was not my only experience in the restaurant or the review would have been very different, which is a shame!

Overall we really enjoyed our stay, albeit brief, the staff were, for the most part brilliant and the hotel feels quite luxurious, I would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Manchester.

Dear guest,
Thank you for reviewing the ABode. Whilst delighted the majority of your time was one of such a positive nature, I am of course disappointed that the breakfast experience was less so. I will of course be discussing your review with all my senior team members and I am confident the issue raised will be addressed.
best regards
Sean

A really nice hotel, with very friendly staff. Free WiFi was consistently good, nice toiletries, lovely tea tray and above all it was impeccably clean. I would definitely stay here again. I Didn't get a chance to try the restaurant - hopefully next time I will!

Superb hotel, friendly and attentative staff, first rate food experience - breakfast menu was exceptional and cooked to order.

Bed and pillows the most comfortable I have had in hundreds of hotels, room was a great size and wi-fi was free.

Unfortunately I did not get to use the pool and spa so unable to rate however if anything like the rest of this beautiful hotel it would be high - check out the tiled staircase, well worth the exertion.

I have stayed here on business on a number of occasions and never fail to be impressed by the quality of the accommodation and the service. The food is good although the menu in the Grill Bar is a little limited, although what is on offer is very good. Highly Recommended

On arrival we're met by warm welcome, room was fantastic food amazing great service from Matthew, all the staff very attentive would definitely return. Great location of the hotel middle of Manchester walking distance to most attractions. Price very good really looking forward for a reason to book another visit. And most importantly the other half loved it, more brownie points. Very clean and the bed was like sleeping on a very large marshmallow. Added bonus of WI games console and great light refreshments in the room.

I stayed here for business as the rate was relatively good - although in hindsight I would have upgraded the room. Although it was very funky and the facilities good, the double glazing left a lot to be desired which meant that there was a lot of noise and the aircon was very loud too. The bar area was pretty standard with nothing bad about it, just nothing exceptional. As with most hotels the star is their staff and they could not have been better - friendly and helpful at all times.

Room Tip: If you need a good night's sleep avoid 402.....
