“We love staying here..........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2011

My hubby always try to stay at this hotel. We enjoy the nightlife in Manchester and the hotel is perfectly situated to be close enough to the fun, without being too close you can't get any sleep, when you eventually decide to crawl back to the sanctury of your room!

Can't fault it - the staff and management are always been extremely helpful and very friendly whenever we have stayed. The hotel has just recently been refurbished and looks great!

Would recommend this hotel to anyone who asks.

Centre Manchester, the hotel is conveniently close to the Oxford street station. From the station there are 20 minute direct connections to the airport, at least twice per hour. Comfortable rooms, separate toilet and bathroom. Friendly staff.
The Internet is provided by Orange and (so I think) too expensive. English hotels apparently do not provide free internet to their guests.

The list prices are hilariously high, and pricing strategy is rather unclear. the 2011 prices for a regular room vary between 70 and 100 GPB per night depending on the number of free rooms. I think that's high, but not unreasonable. 14 GBP for breakfast seems to be standard for UK. Quite a lot, but again not unreasonable.
Overall I quite enjoyed my stay (apart from the Internet...)

Excellent hotel superb position for town centre etc and within easy walking distance of train and bus links. Negative thoughts would be the cost of meals especially breakfast although there is an excellent Wetherspoons serving much cheaper breakfast within 200 yds

I have stayed here a number of times for business, and its a lovely hotel. Smack bang in the middle of Manchester, the location is great with a short walk to the nearest tram stop (St Peter's Square - 3 mins). The rooms are not plush, but also not basic and very clean and spacious (the beds are really squeaky though!). The bathrooms however are lovely, with amazingly powerful showers and very nice suites. The staff are very friendly and helpful and there is a great variety on offer at breakfast. I almost always stay here when travelling to Manchester on business and would recommend it. I would also stay here if coming to Manchester for the weekend for fun! My only complaint is that very few of the machines in the fitness centre were working during my stay and the hotel could not say when they would be fixed.

The room was great. Large, plenty of space, king-size bed, television with lots of channels, air conditioning that worked - so far so good!

Slight problem with the toilet - it is in a recessed area of the room with a seperate door which isn't large enough to close the door upon entry without sitting on the toilet paper holder.

Breakfast was fantastic - full buffet with sausages, beans, eggs, mushrooms, toast, fruit, drinks...

The bar could have been better. It felt very sterilised from the rest of the hotel, something to do with the position of it away from the rest of the foyer. Drinks were pricey for the area, but the service was good.

Internet was not free in the room, something which I had not anticipated. There were two computers in the foyer which you could use instead.

I would come back.

This hotel is centrally located in the Manchester, close to the main shopping area and china town. All the main attractions are within walking distance. The hotel made for us a very good impression. Everything is clean and well maintained. The room are big enough, with separated bathroom and toilet. There is a safe, TV and a frigobar in the room. The room servise was quite fast. The staff at front desk were helpful and profesional as well. In the upper floor there is a small fintessroom with sauna. The breakfast buffet was very good. I can recommend this hotel for tourist and business travellers as well.

Up to the usual Novotel standard - maybe a bit better than than the 3* rating.

Location was good. About 10 mins walk from centre. Take the free purple ( no 3) bus from piccadilly station. The stop at the cube gallery is right opposite the hotel.

Booked on-line for the summer promotion and got a very good deal including breakfast, which was also good.

Staff were efficient and very friendly.
