“superb wedding venue”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

The Place was the venue for our daughter's wedding. The wedding planner, Lyndsay, could not have been more helpful. We have worked with quite a few hotels with my hubby's business, and he commented that she's one of the best he's worked with. She ensured that everything went like clockwork, and the hotel were really accommodating to all our requests - allowing bunting to be put up, and a variety of performers in the evening. The function suite looked stunning and is on a variety of levels offering space and variety for everyone. The food was excellent, and for once, not one complaint - quite an achievement for over 80 guests! Food was hot, huge portions, beautifully presented and tasted great!

Having the apartments to relax in before the ceremony and between the wedding breakfast and the evening event, was fabulous, as this is the bit were people get bored. We all emerged ready and full of energy for the evening event. We even had fresh milk in the fridge, along with the tea/coffee/sugar....so much better than the little tubs of UHT you usually get! The beds were really comfy - I didn't want to get up in the morning! The only down side (which can't be helped) is that any bedrooms in the apartments that open onto the atrium, don't have a window to open, and because of the age of the building, there isn't air conditioning, so they can get HOT!

The atrium is beautiful, but my daughter and her hubby chose to get married in the Penine Suite, white and elegant, and this looked great. They were given the penthouse suite and after the wedding, staff had decorated the bed with rose petals...awww....

I would recommend this hotel as a wedding venue, classic, with a modern twist.

Lovely historic converted warehouse which features a central covered atrium with fountains and palms. Lovely apartment with galley kitchen, lounge with big windows onto the atrium and exposed ceilings, ensuite and bathroom. Very comfortable beds and a cosy feel to the apartment - quiet too. Breakfast was excellent - none of your tasteless catering sausages here - truly tasty, proper, herby sausages. All the staff were very helpful. Underground parking (charge applies), but disabled parking right opposite the door. Very convenient for shopping in Manchester and Picadilly Train Station.

We stayed here for a second time for 10 nights whilst I was racing at the Manchester Velodrome. The service is generally good. The location is great and easy to get to public transport and shopping. The restaurant food has definitely improved from 2 years ago, really nice and well presented with good options. The apartments are spacious, great for families, however they are starting to look tired. The bath had signs of mould, there were no shower caps or face washers, and the pressure in the bath/shower was poor as well as the tap function broken.Housekeeping was inconsistent, sometimes dirty towels were left in the rooms, and little things like teabags and sugar were not restocked. These are all little things but added together made a difference to our stay. Be aware that there are often conferences and weddings, parties etc going on especially on the weekends, but this didn't effect us much.

Room Tip: Ask to go to the back of the building.

Had a wonderful short stay here with 2 children. The hotel is just around the corner from Picadillly station which was great for us as we arrived by train. It is also well located for exploring Manchester. The room/apartment was large, clean, and well equipped. There was a dishwasher and washing machine/dryer and complimentary tea and coffee. There were also robes and slippers (which delighted our children). The staff were friendly and helpful. We had asked for an early check-in and this went smoothly. We also had a DVD player which refused to work and this was replaced quickly and without fuss. I can't comment on the restaurant as we prepared food in our well equipped kitchen. There are also numerous restaurants and convenience stores nearby. We had a great time and would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for five nights at the start of our trip around England. Our stay in Manchester was very comfortable thanks to the Place. Our two bedroom apartment was very spacious and clean with all the needed amenities. Staff and service were impeccable and promptly addressed our concerns. We noticed the Place attracted a lot of hen and stag party guests but this did not negatively impact on our stay. The location of the Place is also superb. We were able to walk to Manchester Piccadilly and the Chorlton Street Coach station with no difficulty, enabling us to comfortably explore the Peak District. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would definitely return.

Eight of us stayed in The Place apartments for my birthday as we came to Manchester for the weekend. As usual the apartments were spotless, very high spec and perfect location. The girls all enjoyed our weekend but said it was made more special by the accommodation. Reception staff were brilliant as was security early in the morning. Thanks again!
