We booked this hotel for a hen weekend and got the rooms at a decent rate, which actually turned out to be cheaper than the Premier Inn! Check in was easy and the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The twin rooms were a good size and had a lovely bathroom-a separate dressing and basin area to the wet room with a good shower and bath. Beds were very comfortable and I had no problem sleeping.
Robes and slippers in the room were useful as we used these to go down to the pool area. The pool is small but it was just nice to have a quick swim before going out.
We didn't have breakfast but did reserve an area in Opus One for early evening drinks, which is a very nice looking bar. The whole reservation process was dealt with very friendly and helpful staff and when actually in the bar, the waiting staff were equally friendly and offered great service. Drinks seemed reasonably priced.
Location wise, this hotel is perfect as it is situated a stones throw from Deansgate and Spinningfields, which has a great range of upmarket bars and restaurants to choose from (Artisan, Lawn Club in the summer months, Grand Pacific, Alchemist, Neighbourhood to name a few). It meant that everything we booked for the weekend was in walking distance. The shops are about a 7 minute walk away and Northern Quarter about 10-15 minutes walk.
Ive stayed in the MacDonald and Malmaison before, both situated by Piccadilly Station, and so these are great for the Northern Quarter and closer for shopping. However for a hen weekend then I'd certainly suggest staying here- you'll be able to go out in your highest of heels to some lovely places and then stagger back to the hotel with ease :)
