“Held our wedding reception here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2011

We decided to hold our wedding reception at 'The Place' due to the reasonable rates and city centre location. Samantha was nothing less than thorough and flexible in organising our big day.
Unfortunately we had a minor emergency with a family member just as the reception began, but the management and staff of 'The Place' were fantastic in all their help and attention. This ensured my wife and I could relax and enjoy ourselves for the rest of the day and night.
Aside from the room in which the reception was held (which is fantastic in itself!) The Penthouse suite was simply amazing. The view over Manchester was stunning, the beds were probably the most comfortable we've slept in, and a lovely touch were the rose petals and huge bunch of fresh flowers awaiting us!
We both find it hard to think of any bad points about the whole day. We don't plan on getting married again, but we'd recommend the Place time and again! It really did add to a very special day for us both!

Thank you for your excellent review. I am delighted you enjoyed your special day so much. Samantha and the team take great pride in the events they facilitate and hearing such positive feedback can only inspire them to new heights. I look forward to welcoming you both back in the future.

Stayed as family of 4 in two-bedroom appartment for £98. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Bar was pleasant. Bin collection was a bit loud very early in the morning, but other than that excellent - really good value and right next to station.

This is an amazing place, two or three minutes from the station yet quiet and calm inside. Very high quality but not intimidating, great decor, well looked after, friendly professional staff on reception. Bar lounge area a good size and handy, and gorgeous atrium. Rooms are huge, very well laid out and kitted out, with window seats - my dream! (Even if my view was mostly a Manchester car park ;-) The restaurant was great too and provided soya milk for me on demand, I'd not had a chance to ask in advance, so that was really good service.

Booked a one bedroom apartment via my Airmiles account and when we arrived to check in we were a little early but the helpful receptionist booked us into a 2 bedroom apartment on the first floor to save waiting. It was lovely and clean and very spacious. These apartments are situated nice and close to the train station so we didnt have to walk far with our suitcases. We read a few reviews before going regarding noise but we were not disturbed by any other residents or any noise outside. Next time we visit manchester we are going to book one of the delux apartments so we can enjoy the views.

Thank you for your excellent review. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. If you are looking to enjoy the views of Manchester on your return may I suggest you consider a Penthouse as they have a patio area comanding views of Manchester and surrounding areas.

We hired out the room at the Place Hotel in Manchester for our prom. Everything was great, including the staff, decorations and the overall event. We are very grateful for the support from the events organiser Samantha, as she helped hugely to create a fantastic event. Overall, I would definitely hire the room again as it met all of our requirements.

Stayed the night at The Place in Manchester after my mate had been told about it. Me and my wife and him and his partner were staying so booked one of the two bedroomed places. All I can say is that it was big. The bedrooms were bigger than mine at home and the Living Area was also extremely big. Overall it looked very good and clean.

Just a couple of points to improve on, though.

1) The finish in our bedroom was not great. The carpet did not reach as far as the walls and the toilet roll holder came off in my hands. In your lower end chain hotels you may forgive this but this should have been better.

2) The shower was cold and no matter how long I ran it for it did not warm up at all. This I found out in the morning and had a cold, not enjoyable, shower.

Overall, though, I cannot complain too much and me and the wife have said that we will return here in the future.
