My partner and I stayed this Sunday evening for a last minute night away as had been my birthday. When we arrived (Around 1PM) the room wasnt available as they had some late check outs and check-in wasnt until 3PM. However as we wanted to shop we were happy to leave our luggage and after being shown places to go on a map provided for us went into Manchester.
On our return at around 6PM we were shown our room (number 21 red room very very nice) and our luggage had been taken up for us, fantastic. we were offered a hot drink and were also given 2 glasses of champagne (Happy Birthday me ;) ), a lovely and very touching gesture.
The room was lovely and the bed to die for (we really want to know what type of mattress it was as was so so comfortable) a huge queen size wooden and leather one, gorgeous!
Very clean! Great upto date mod cons, DVD player, docking station, free view flat screen.
The bathroom was lovely with blue night lights, lovely touches with the V duck, cotton wool etc all extras that make your stay comfortable and different to large branded hotels.
We were a little cold but later discovered that the heating / ac worked with bathroom light on...
It was quite noisy from the street and the room above has a squeeky floor board but they didnt spoil our stay at all we absolutely loved it.
This hotel may not be for everyone, it is in the heart of all of the gay bars and clubs. It has a lovely avenue of lit up trees at night by the canal.
We didnt eat in the restaurant however the bar area was nice with chandeliers and dark surroundings modern and chic. The toilets in the bar werent as clean as the hotel ones and a little worn.
Very helpful, friednly and welcoming staff here and we will definately be staying again.
Recommend use of NCP car park as get a discount at hotel. Once stayed you also get an e mail for a discounted next stay, great for return business!!!!
Will be trying the restaurant next time. Thanks and well done fantastic hotel and service to match!!!
