“Great location, great hotel”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

The rooms in this restored mill are beautiful, retaining the original brick and woodwork. I shared a double, double bedded room with a friend and we were pleasantly surprised by the comfort and elegance of this hotel. The service was exceptional. At reception the staff were extremely pleasant, friendly and very helpful. I can not comment on the food as we ate elsewhere however reading other reviews I'm sure it would not have disappointed.
Great value for money in a great location for Manchester's main attractions.

Couldn't have been happier with the staff at this hotel, friendly and helpful throughout my stay. Communal areas of the hotel are lovely and the rooms are comfortable. As a note there is no minibar in the rooms and the bathrooms could do with a little updating.

Food was to a high standard and the hotel is walkable to Spinningfields in Manchester where there are plenty of restaurants etc.

I was there with work and the conference facilities were good and they certainly knew how to feed us - I must have put on half a stone for the two days that I was there!

Just got back from a days conference at this hotel. Whilst I can't comment on the rooms the lobby area was spacious, nicely decorated with lovely furniture. Nice refreshments during the day including chocolate fondue with strawberries for dipping. Lunch was a very pleasant buffet with a wide selection of food including vegetarian options. I've certainly had worse. There is very limited parking at the hotel but there is a pay and display conveniently placed next to the hotel, £4.00 for 4 hours or £8.00 for 24 hours. Well located for the city centre. Would be happy to go back.

Very handy for the city centre while far enough away for a peaceful break. Almost next-door to Granada studios and we've spotted four Corrie stars over our last couple of visits when we've walked up to town (if that floats your boat lol). The Pro's: Superbly efficient check-in by very welcoming staff, well stocked and comfortable bar, with a relaxing hush even when the hotel is busy. Very good restaurant food, even the set menu, and served professionally, with exactly the right time-lapse in between courses. Rooms are spotless and roomy, very comfortable beds. Good breakfasts with a great choice of all you would want, regularly replenished and served at the right temperature, plenty of fresh tea and coffee.

The Con's: I reported a faulty electrical socket (the only one I could find) three times and still left the room after two nights' stay with it not working, so mentioned it again on check-out; a barman ignored us completely and went on polishing glasses and didn't get anyone else to serve us. There was an icy blast coming from the large dining area windows in the bar and we mentioned it twice to staff but they simply said it was because it was cold outside and they had very large windows (management please note:curtains on those windows would help keep your cutomers cosy and wanting to spend more time in your bar).

Overlall, a great hotel and none of the above prevents us from wanting go return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel, or a river view; those at the Quay Street side have fairly...

Very good value for money. Beautiful hotel lobby, restaurant and bar areas and the room was lovely. We did find a paracetamol on the carpet when we arrived and luckily didn't have any children who could have picked it up but apart from that I had a great time and the food in the restaurant was fab!

not the best room 408 very tiered and needed a good dust had breakfast good variety but not very warm. Bar staff served a Irish coffee in a breakfast mug not good when paying top price said run out of glasses poor excuse when only a few people in the bar don't expect this from a better hotel

Room Tip: don't have room 408 very tiered and dusty

Firstly the staff were all professional yet friendly and helpful. The valet parking was a real bonus as well as our room upgrade. We had a third floor room which had a low oak ceiling and hobbit sized doors. We loved this quirkiness as we are both less than 5 foot 7. The luxurious bedding and curtains as well as a super king sized bed made for a cosy and relaxing stay. We chose not to have breakfast at the hotel as it was a little expensive for us but we had an evening meal overlooking the river and took advantage of the 2 courses plus glass of wine for £15 or 3 courses plus wine for £20 which was very reasonable as the quality of food and service was top notch. You are just round the corner from MOSI which is free and well worth a visit. We had breakfast and lunch there at a reasonable price. We will be back again. The quiet nights sleep so close to the centre of a city was bliss!
