We stayed at the Novotel on Saturday night reception team where lovely, the room was lovely and clean. The bed was not so good. The noise from the room above was really bad we where woken at half 1 and this continued till 4am although not the hotels fault the rooms do advertise soundproofing. It's a shame as the location was really good and parking not a problem

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit to Novotel Manchester Centre. I’m delighted that you enjoyed your stay and we have noted your comments about the bed, which we are addressing - as part of a brand project we hope to be replacing all beds this year. With regards to the noise, I afraid this is an issue that all City Centre hotels can relate to, although we hope this is minimised by our location off the main roads through the City. Kind regards, Iain Black, General Manager.

Enjoyed our stay here in order to see a concert at the Manchester Academy. Only 15 mins walk south down Oxford Street. Opted for an executive room which was in typical Novotel stylee with a very comfortable bed. The breakfast selection was very good in particular the fresh fruit. Both my favourites were on offer - fresh strawberries and fresh pineapple. Lurvely. Convenient parking is next door at £20 for an overnight stay which is reduced by 20% when you provide a ticket which is obtained at checkout. Couple of good curry houses near by. The only problem we had was that there was a big road race on in Manchester and we couldn't vacate the car part between 0900 and 1300. We opted for an early exit so we were down for breakfast at 0700. Will use this hotel again.

Stayed here overnight prior to completing the Great Manchester 10k BUPA Run. Check in smooth, room very clean, excellent shower room, breakfast very good, only gripe was the bacon was crisp !!! Hotel allowed us to keep our luggage there all day on the Sunday allowing me to change after the run. All in all a decent hotel with very good staff.

A standard business stopover hotel in Central Manchester but nothing more exceptional than is really to be expected for the price paid. Comfortable room and efficient staff.

Room was an Executive a Room but wasn't anything more than I'd expect from a standard room. Hence I'm not really sure what the difference is between the two.

Thank you for posting your thoughts on here, we really value your feedback. Our Executive rooms are actually significantly different from our Standard and Superior rooms - the main features are the additional toilettries, Nespresso machine, Bose Ipod dock and multimedia centre, bathrobe and slippers to name a few. I do hope we can welcome you back at Novotel Manchester Centre in the future. Kind regards, Iain Black, General Manager.

Location good if you want Canal St, China Town as they are near. Ten/fifteen minutes walk to shops and Picadilly. The look is minimalist and functional - bland looking. Room was decent size but to be honest, it looked like a Travelodge room, everything you needed but nothing luxurious about it. In fact, the Dreamer beds in the updated Travelodges are better than these. A friend had breakfast which she said was lovely but overall, ok hotel, not great and not 4*

Lastly, check your bank statement later if you stay here, I had been charged £7.50 for something, when I rang and queried this, they said it was for three bottles of water that were in the room. £2.50 for a 500ml bottle of Abbey Well that I can buy from my local supermarket for 65p. I laughed down the phone. We assumed they were complimentary (as in other hotels) as there was no indication that you had to pay for them.

Not for us - wouldn't recommend or stay again.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel.
