Only stayed for one night to attend a party near by so didn't get to appreciate all of the hotel's amenities. Our room was on the 8th floor so we had a great view of the city and it was quiet. It was spacious, very relaxing and clean too with all the mod cons. We enjoyed a few drinks in the bar at Opus One and they were lovely. There was a nice atmosphere in there for a Saturday night and the waiters were always around to replenish drinks. We also ate at Steak and Lobster. It was really good value because it's a set menu for £17. However this didn't mean compromising on quality, the steak was yummy! Again great service. Our breakfast was really good with plenty of choice and because it was self serve you could eat as much or as little as you liked including the cooked breakfast so this made it good value included in the room rate. Would like to stay again so that we could make use of the spa facilities, they looked great.

Room tip: Rooms on a higher floor have a great view of the city and are quieter too.

clean spacious room with an ensuite that was extremely very well appointed-wet room and bath. Beautful pool and leisure facilities. Just 2 downpoints. No hotel parking although parking available a 5 minite walk away so not that much of an issue. However, I did have to ask twice for coffee at the buffet which was disappointing

I stayed here one night on business. After staying at some fairly awful hotels in Manchester in the past this was a pleasant change. The public areas are nice, the room comfortable with a modern feel. The free wifi was being temperamental the night I stayed but the receptionist quickly sorted it by giving me access to the secure network.

I ate in the Steak and Lobster restaurant. The steak was ok, a bit over seasoned but pretty good value with the limitless fries. The breakfast in the same restaurant was very good with very pleasant service. I would definitely choose to return on future visits.

The hotel is integrated within a classy conversion of a historic building. The location is ideal for key central sites. The staff were friendly and professional. Radisson are reliable in our view. It was good enough for the Sri Lankan test cricket players who were staying when we were there. I would recommend to good friends.

The hotel looks a little bit smarter than your average Hilton or Holiday Inn and, at first glance, the extra money seems well spent - however there are plenty of shortcomings.
The "nearby" car park requires a torturous journey by foot (it is under a conference centre) and an even longer journey by car around a long one way system.
When we arrived the reception area had been given to a wedding party. It was a long hard struggle to push past the guests and the drinks and food being served. What a crazy place to site a wedding reception!
The rooms look well designed - but the attractive appearance is undermined by the poor functionality. The "master" side of the bed had switches that controlled room lights and reading lights both sides of the bed. The other side, my wife discovered, had one switch that allowed her to only control my reading light!. Yes, we did try every possible combination of switch positions - but this switch had been incorrectly wired and obviously never corrected.
The trendy glass bathroom basin had two sizeable and dangerous chips on the lip. The shaving mirror had been mounted at a very low level so that a lady could sit at the mirror and apply makeup - this made it impossible to use as a shaving mirror without kneeling on the floor.
The shower is not an enclosure but a "wet room" design without the space necessary /for a wet room. After the shower is used the toilet floor area is soaking wet - a really poor piece of design.
Expect long queues for lifts and breakfast.
I was really glad we were only staying one night

Dear John,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We recommend that our guests use the NCP Great Northern Car Park as, as you mention the car park for Manchester Central is underground and can be difficult to navigate your way t the hotel from this site. The hotel is proud to have a 24 hour maintenance team that are on hand to correct any room fault that has occurred after the room inspection by our Housekeeping department. I am sorry that you found the arrival drinks for the in house wedding to be an inconvenience. This area is very popular with guests using the any of the 26 different function spaces the hotel offers in the luxury market place.

Kind Regards
