“A good hotel - you shouldn't go wrong”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

This is where Rolls met Royce, so a bit of history to this hotel. There isn't much to say, I've only stayed here once and it was very good, I would also imagine it to be a consistently good hotel. Very comfy bed in-fact one of the best beds I've ever slept in! Good location for Manchester Central and Spinningfields if you're on business, also easy access to trams. Champagne bar a 2 minute walk away if your with the other half, Brew Dog pub over the road if you're into your cask ales. I've not read all the reviews here but I can't imagine you going too wrong if you stay here.

I have stayed at the Midland on numerous visits to Manchester and have always enjoyed my stay. The staff are attentive and the hotel has an air of a lost era. However, the rooms are now becomming a little tired and need some modernisation. The entertainment system in the room is also a little old fashioned and not up to the standard of more recently constructed hotel.

My boyfriend and I stayed for one night while attending the Coldplay concert room was really nice few minors touch ups needed to make the room perfect such as cracks in ceiling and the headboard looked a little dated. Beautifully clean and very well presented. Staff were nice and friendly not snotty like I expected as per previous experiences in higher end hotels.

The bed was amazing I could have stayed in there all day so comfy and air con in room to help control temp. Bathroom was spotless and the toiletries were nice as well and soft towels.

The breakfast was delicious buffets style but not as you would expect everything tasted fresh and not cheap produce. Again the staff in breakfast room were so nice and polite.

Would defiantly stay here again and would recommend to others also.

Stayed in the Midland for 1 night on 9th June, first impression as soon as we got out the car was how friendly, helpful and efficient the staff were and this continued to every member of staff we had contact with. The room was a junior suite and was very comfortable, we had a bite to eat in the bar and food was very good, we had breakfast in our room and considering it was room service the food was very good.

Only thing that I could gripe about are the leisure facilities, they are looking a bit tired and the space allocated to it is limited and disjointed, it still functioned adequately and again staff were superb.

Dear martin p,

Thanks so much for taking the time to review The Midland and for your kind comments about our team. To be fair the hotel is listed and so the layout of our leisure facilities needs to reflect this. That said it is the largest and most comprehensive in the City and I hope you'll agree has the same high level of friendly and helpful staff that our other areas enjoy.

We'd be delighted to see you back here again and thank you once again for your review.

Kind regards

I stayed here as part of a conference so did not pay myself. It was however such a lovely stay. I had my 4 year old with me and all staff were excellent especially breakfast staff. They went out if there way to help and it was really genuine. Would definately recomend and would love to go again - may save up for a mini break : ) I cannot fault this hotel in any way - lovely building, service and excellent friendly staff

Could fault nothing!

The room and facilities were excellent, gorgeous, comfortable bed.
The staff were all extremely polite and helpful.
Had an afternoon bar meal, food was fab!
The breakfast is well worth having, plenty of choice and extras to choose from too.

Would definately recommend this hotel and shall certainly be staying here again on my next visit to Manchester.

All fine. Very clean, fantastic service. Only issues were that my lovely big widows overlooked another hotel - their guests could see right into my room so spent stay with curtains closed. Low water pressure in shower spoiled that a little.

Dear Lisa J,

Thanks so much for your kind remarks and for taking the time to review The Midland.

If I can advise on anything with future bookings it would just be to simply call our reception team and ask for another room if the one you've been allocated isn't to your complete satisfaction.

Thanks also for the comments about our team and the fantastic service.

We look forward to your return.
