The Hotel is about 5-10 min walk from Piccadilly Station down Canal St.
Upon arrival you are given a complimentary tray of tea/coffee and lovely biscuits and just little fabulous things like a pot of lemon and limes and ice for your drinks. I was shown upstairs and was lucky enough to be staying in one of the penthouses. I've never stayed in a room like this with an upstairs and it was just lovely. They had a bowl of fruit waiting on the table including strawberries, i've never had a bowl of fruit in a hotel room. They have everything you want, really nice toiletries, a lovely stand alone bathtub which i didn't use but i stared at it a few times. There is a safe, a minbar, a goody basket in case you get the munchies, bathrobes, room service and check out the breakfast i got ( see photo ) i didn't even order the whole menu and it was the most PERFECT breakfast i've ever had. Coffee is really good also.
I had to go out and when i came back the blinds were drawn and they had put mints on the pillow and turned down the bed, i slept like a Log! Maybe there was something in the mints. The bar was closed off so didn't get to try any drinks but the mini bar saved the day.
I was gutted when i had to leave.The staff were lovely, well mannered and helpful and i really appreciated all the little touches. When you work so hard and pay out good money it's nice to stay somewhere that is like this and it's my new fav hotel in Manchester and i will be back!
