“Lovely hotel in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Stayed for one night whilst on business. My room was on the first floor and was a great size, very clean and well equipped. Breakfast was excellent. I ate in the Café Bar on the evening I arrived. The staff were so lovely, chatty and helpful and the food was very tasty. Reception staff were also really friendly, in fact all the staff I came across were excellent. The hotel is a five minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly station.
On the down side my room looked over the main road and there was a lot of street noise not just from traffic but music etc which think was from the bar one building along. Also the windows don't open and as it was a warm night I had to sleep with air-conditioning on which I personally don't like. Nevertheless I would definitely stay at the hotel again but ask for a room further back in the buildling

Room Tip: Room 102, 103 & 104 are to the front of the building which can be a bit noisy so maybe ask for a...

Stayed here in June after a meal in the fine dining restaurant. Room was great, night was ruined by paper thin walls that allowed us to hear some drunk people fighting in the room next door, we feared for their safety as it sounded like violent domestic abuse. Hotel staff were slow to react but eventually calmed the people next door down and moved us to a quieter more basic room at 4am after a couple of hours of disturbance.

Night staff should have been quicker to sort things out, reluctant to involve police or do anything, should have looked after us better rather than leaving us to listen to the noise for hours, hotel can't do anything about bad guests but could have helped us enjoy our stay.

In the morning breakfast was fab so a small positive for the stay. No one had mentioned to the day staff the events so it was a surprise when we mentioned it, we were offered a free upgrade next time we returned however never received the promised email and on emailing hotel never got a response.

Why make such a gesture and then never go through with it, makes me feel cheap trying to follow it up. Not sure I will ever visit an abode again based on this experience.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your review, your balanced feedback is appreciated. I am delighted that you were pleased with the room and our breakfast offering. I am disappointed however to read of the issues you highlight with regards to the noise from other guests and the subsequent issues that followed.

Having looked into this matter I have been made aware that after the initial offer of a complimentary upgrade was discussed, the front desk team then provided you with the appropriate contact details and it was their understanding that you would make contact once a future return date had been set. Clearly this account differs from your own hence why there was no initial contact from the hotel. For this therefore I apologise.

I can assure you that any gesture provided by the hotel is genuine, and I would be delighted to discuss this matter with you directly. I am contactable via the hotel main telephone number.

Thank you once again,

Sean

Had a pleasant stay at the Abode, which is situated a couple of minutes walk between Piccadilly rail station and Piccadilly Gardens.
Staff friendly and helpful, rooms pleasant and comfortable in terms of size, amenities and the bed itself. Everywhere seemed to be very clean.
Breakfast was above average in my opinion, as hot food is cooked to order and not the far too often buffet style, so often found these days.
Would recommend and will definately stay again.

Just returned from a one night stay after attending a wedding in Manchester. First impressions of the hotel was how lovely the building was. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the 2nd floor facing the main road but the noise want a problem really as the bed was so amazing and comfortable. The room was different and what you might call quirky it was lovely. After reading the reviews about the restaurant staff, I can honestly say they were lovely, attentive and helpful. We had lunch and then breakfast which was lovely. Thank you for making our stay enjoyable will definetly stay there again.

Room Tip: I loved room 203 on the 2 nd floor but if you are a light sleeper then best to ask for a room at the...

My children had booked us a stay at this hotel for one of my big 0 birthdays!!! The hotel which is a short distance from Piccadilly has been converted from an industrial building to a hotel with lots of character. When we arrived, we had been upgraded to the Winston Suite on the Fabulous Fifth. It was super, a very large comfy bed, brilliant bathroom and lounging area. We were impressed. All the staff from reception to housekeeping were very courteous and helpful. We dined at Michael Caines, very good and the breakfast was excellent. We had a terrific stay here and would recommend it without hesitation. The only downside was that we could hear the Metro Trams!!

This hotel is beautiful!!! The staff were extremely friendly! The reception staff and the cleaning staff were hard working and polite and very helpful! The big bed in our room was incredibly comfortable and I love the chairs in the room too. The bathroom was big and the monsoon shower was really nice and the bathroom am amenities were lovely and smelt really good. The only reason I say 4.9 is the tiny issue we had with noisy neighbours but that isn't the hotels fault at all.
We made reservations at the Michael Caines fine dining resturant and it was an incredible meal! And the staff there also were very helpful and smiley!
