“superb staff”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

Recently we filled a long held ambition to stay at the Midland The quality of the welcome was superb, what came over was that the staff are very proud of the hotel and love showing it off. The build ng itself is well worth seeing and the staff delight in showing off its more interesting quirks. Everyone from reception catering gym and security (Joe went out of his way to help) made our stay very special. If you want a memorable stay, stay here

I recently stayed on business and only used the hotel at its most basic level, for a good nights sleep, but it was excellent.

The hotel has a lovely quality feel to it, more like an international hotel in th US or Asia. Lovely wide corridors and quality decor. My room was lovely, mix of the traditional and modern. The best bits were a lovely comfy bed and my favourite...climate control so you can get the perfect temperature!

Nice modern bathroom..not exceptionally luxurious, but lovely all the same.

I had breakfast in my room and it was excellent, arrived on time, was still lovely and warm. I left feeling refreshed, which doesnt always happen when you stay in hotels a lot for work. Definitely m favourite Manchester hotel now.

The Midland is a centrally located magnificent Edwardian hotel: the interior has been ruined by ill judged modernisations going back to the 1960's. BUT the staff are numerous and helpful, the rooms are comfortable although possibly needing redecoration and for a big hotel they make you welcome. AND The French is one of the best restaurants I've been to.

Stayed here with a colleague for a night on business. Did not avail of breakfast option so did not eat here

Hotel kindly upgraded us to bigger rooms on fifth floor on arrival. My room was superb. Massive room. Like a suite really with two huge double beds, couch, 3 armchairs and good bathroom.

Could not fault it especially as it was v reasonable price wise.

Staff really professional and friendly.

Location of hotel is super. Right in city centre and next to tram. V handy if you are going to old Trafford !

Will definitely return.

Very elegant hotel situated in an ideal location, me and my partner only stopped for the one night but were very impressed and will be returning to the midland on our next visit to manchester. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking can be a small problem so we opted for the valet to park our car for £20 we thought it was a little expensive but it works fantastic if your wanting to stop the one night and especially if your planning to leave your bags and go shopping the following day as you can keep it there for 24 hours and the valet will bring your car round and put your bags in for you on arrival. The rooms were spacious and the bed was amazing had a great nights sleep. The bar and entertainment was very elegant, overall a very pleasant stay and would recommend the midland to anybody wanting a special stay in manchester.

I've stayed at the Midland several times over the past few years and have always found it to be a first class hotel, with extremely friendly staff. Rooms are clean and well appointed although quite small.

I have two complaints however. Firstly the Number of TV channels is very small (although oddly I do seem to be able to get Arabic news!). But more significantly is thhe quite hopeless wifi which dips in and out between a very very weak signal or no signal at all. In this day and age that really isnt acceptable and it really does make it very hard to do any work in my room, to such an extent that I would seriously have to think twice about coming back here for future business trips. Shame, it is such a lovely hotel otherwise.

Dear Mike J

Thank you for your review of The Midland following your recent stay. I'm sorry that you experienced difficulties with the Wi-Fi signal as we wish to provide complete and complimentary coverage throughout the hotel. I would be grateful if you could contact the hotel at cwoods@qhotels.co.uk to advise which room you stayed in so that we can check the signal strength/quality and undertake any necessary actions to improve it. I can also advise that we are in the process of reviewing our TV service and will be improving our offering.
