We held our wedding ceremony and reception at The Place and had a fantastic day. Firstly it is situated near to Piccadilly train station so was very handy for guests arriving by train/tram. The ceremony was held in the Atrium which has a water feature and palm trees so a bit quirkier than the sort of hotel room where you would normally hold a wedding ceremony, but suited us! It made for some interesting wedding photographs too. Samantha was our contact at the hotel and from beginning to end she was fantastic, always had a smile on her face and nothing was too much trouble. Samantha was also present on the day to ensure the ceremony ran smoothly and to offer reassurance!
The food for the wedding breakfast was excellent, all served by friendly staff - special mention to George who acted as toastmaster and was there to oversee everything ran smoothly during the meal, a true professional. The wedding breakfast and evening function were held in the large function room so there was plenty of room for our guests (about 115 in the day plus another 70 in the evening). The dancefloor and bar area were a good size too.
We stayed in the penthouse suite which is on the 7th floor and is on 2 levels it was huge and has great views over the city. Many other guests stayed overnight and overall were impressed by the size and layout of the apartments (there was an issue to do with a strange smell in one of the guests rooms but this was dealt with efficiently).
The costs for the wedding were very reasonable and you'd be hard pushed to find better value for money in the city centre. Many guests commented on how reasonable the bar prices were considering it was the centre of town.
All of the staff we met on the day and whilst we were organising the wedding were always really pleasant and helpful.
We would recommend you visit this venue if you are thinking of holding your wedding reception in Manchester City centre. It was the perfect venue for our special day!
