We stayed at the Midland for one night as we were meeting friends in Manchester.
The building itself is beautiful and the interior has an old school type of opulence that class establishments have.
Our room ( superior ) was more like a suite. Very large bedroom with an extremely comfortable bed, a sitting area complete with sofa and also a vanity table. The bathroom was a decent size with a shower over the bath. Everything in the room was spotless and in lovely condition.
The hotel does not have parking but there is a NCP car park nearby. Be aware it is £18 to park over night.
So why only 4 stars?? Just a couple of niggles.
The carpet in the hallway of our floor (5) was past it's best and looking in need of replacement.
The air con was very loud as was the fridge, light sleepers may need ear plugs.
Finally the gent who checked us in was verging on over efficient! He noticed my husbands email address was on the system already and quizzed him about where he had stayed before. He asked where we were going that night and our reply of 'just round the corner' was met with great enthusiasm!
Minor things but worth a mention.
Overall a very pleasant experience which I would happily repeat again.
