My partner booked a stay at the Mitre for the two of us on Bank Holiday Monday, he chose the hotel based on the fact that it was so reasonably priced compared to our usual Manchester hotels.
My partner having already called to check that it would be possible to check in early, we arrived at the hotel at lunchtime and was greeted by one of the friendliest receptionist I've ever dealt with. We were checked in with no fuss and were told that we had been upgraded to the Luxury Double. All staff were helpful and sociable. No complaints at all.
So we were in room 1, just a few metres away from reception and the hotel bar, and it has to be said that we were not disturbed by any noise all evening or throughout the night. Anyway, the room was beautiful, nicer infact than it looks on the hotel website..okay it is a little shabby in places but in my opinion that only adds to the character. It certainly isn't dirty, just a little rough around the edges but in a good way. The bathroom was large and had a beautiful, modern freestanding bath and a separate shower, there was a fireplace and large mirror but I couldn't quite reach the mirror as I'm fairly short - fortunately there were plenty more mirrors in the actual bedroom. The bedroom was stunning and included some quirky features, with a large wall mounted television and lovely matching white furniture. All in all the room is the perfect getaway for a romantic evening or just to relax, the décor was very calming - very neutral but certainly not bland. Lastly the Cathedral view is beautiful.
All in all we were very happy with our stay, I'm very hard to please when it comes to hotels and for that reason I think my partner was surprised at just how much I loved the Mitre. Having stayed in most of the mainstream, and some not so mainstream, well regarded chains I have found they now never fail to un-impress. I'm going to be honest, I love my 5* luxury and the perks that go hand in hand with that and I'm not trying to suggest you will find that in the Mitre, however now on a much lower budget than in the past this fit the bill perfectly. To be fair I was in the upgraded room and I can't comment on a standard double but I imagine that considering the location and price it would still be exceptionally good value. It was a pleasure staying here and will most certainly be staying again.
