I will say it in advance. The most amazing thing this hotel has is an active Focault pendulum located in the stairwell. This was really brilliant.
Apart from that, the hotel is located close to the University of Manchester and at a fair walking distance to the Picadilly city center, the shopping center and the Picadilly train station. It is the hotel where the Manchester Conference Center is located.
The breakfast was quite ok, with really delicious pain au choc. The fruit was not so tasty, but I'm coming from the South and used to much better fruit than in England :-) The receptionists were helpful and nice. The bar, where the dinner is served, is ok. The first night I had fish and chips and it was quite ok. The second night I had a steak sandwitch and I must say I didn't like the meat.
The room was very silent and the bed was very confortable. So, I was able to have great sleepings.
The only problem was the room size, really small. I must say that the light in the room was very weak and the heating was not adjustable. Some parts of the room (light) needed maintenance.
But all in all I would stay there again if I had to be at the Manchester Conference Center again.
