Stayed for one night in Room 21 on a Wednesday night and would highly recommend for location ambience and staff helpfulness. The rooms are really cosy with very comfortable beds and rather quirky as the bathroom is on a mezzanine level in the room. Bit of an issue if you need to make a few bathroom trips during teh night!!! But other than that its nice to stay somewhere that's a bit different and quirky. Room rates can vary wildly depending on availability so try and book in advance if possible. I'm inclined to look for rates on line and then ring the hotel to see if they can better or match the rate and that has always worked for me. I feel I might get a better room allocation if I am dealing with the hotel directly. Breakfast choice is great and all very well prepared - but do get there on time!

Room Tip: Room 21 was very nice - cosy and no traffic noise

We got married at the Great John Street Hotel in mid May and it truly was the best day of our lives. We were very lucky that we got the best day of the year weather-wise, but the venue was stunning and having the roof terrace was incredible and a great way to show off Manchester to our London friends.
The staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble for them, even when some our guests were still up in the early hours of the morning. The food was excellent (we had the hog roast) and everyone we have spoken to since the wedding has told us it was amazing day for them too(esp the canapes and cocktails).

I would recommend the margarita cocktails to anyone who likes a drink.

Bronwen and David and their teams were brilliant and made everything we wanted happen.

Thank you so much to everyone at GS Hotel. I can't fault anything - from venue, staff, bedrooms (which are incredible and so well decorated) to food and drink - everything was perfect.

Where do i start.....

My girlfriend always wanted to stay here and we lucky enough to spend a night in one of the Eclectric Grand rooms, number 32, which was very chic and contemporary.
The twin roll top baths and the shower/ steam wet room were perfect.

Champagne whilst having a bath was amazing and a real treat, the bed was huge and very luxurious.

The room was a perfect size and very nicely decorated.

The rest of the hotel and dining rooms are amazing, very pretty and a lot of thought has gone into the atmosphere of the hotel, many of the school house features have been kept to give you an idea of the buildings history.

There is a hot tub on the roof terrace which is a great way to end the evening after a few cocktails in the bar.

Breakfast also is a delight, definitely not to be missed.

If you want a great place to stay in Manchester where you will be surrounded by luxury then Great John Street is the place to go.

Room Tip: Eclectric grand rooms have twin baths

If you are looking to spoil yourself and/or your wife /partner spend a night here. I was treating the mrs to an afternoon in town and although we live a 30 min drive away decided to take all the hassle out of taxis etc and treat ourselves to a little pampering in a city hotel for the night. I saw the hotel had the número uno spot on trip advisor manchester hotels and although some minor bits need sorting I'd say it is right up there for a special occasion. They have done a great job of turning what was an old school into a lovely boutique style hotel, which would be a fabulous venue for a wedding / party. With its roof terrace and minstrel gallery it's a perfect venue. I've been to many venues where rooms are soulless big spaces this is the total opposite. Ok onto the ratings
Service:10/10 the staff were all excellent and very attentive from the front desk to one of the staff in the lift helpful and very pleasant. Room service very quick and nothing too much trouble
Room: 9/10 this would have been a 10 had it not been for a few little bits ( no well lit mirror for ladies to apply make up, the hot tap in the RH sink lose, plug to one of the baths not connected, steam/shower room ceiling need re-dec and a little musty smelling, mugs in room different sizes) you may say the last one is a little picky BUT these things matter and if your number one all these need attention. Ok that's the niggles onto the positives. We stayed in the eclectic grand (room18) and it's stunning, they've done it extremely well, bed beautiful and very comfortable, came compete with rose petals. The room is nice and big and is on split levels with a fabulous luxurious bathroom up a flight of stairs. The bathroom has two huge cast iron free standing baths, his and hers sinks, and a huge shower/steam room all with lovely wooden flooring, bath robes the lot. Nice touches of chocolate brownies and hand made cookies in room on arrival so apart for the small bits of maintenance and practically of mirror I'd say it was one of the best rooms I've ever stayed in.
Food: I'm afraid I'm writing this ahead of breakfast, of which there's some great options, in particular the Irish breakfast, however I'm still full from yesterday so unlikely to be able to review this anyway. We had lunch on the rooftop terrace which was lovely. The weather lovely and warm and the area a great place to spend with friends / family, comfy chairs plenty different sized tables and inside area in case weather turns. Food was standard gastro pub style burgers accompanied by mini deep frying baskets (I'll never understand this) not cheap but for the surroundings, worth it. Only niggle was service a little un attentive as we were hidden behind one of the hedges and wanted another drink but could summon waitress.
All in all a lovely experience and I would recommend this place to anyone.
Well done great john street hotel

We stayed here on monday for my birthday treat off my bf, we have stayed before in the baby grand and the room then was first class, this time we stayed in the opus grand and omg it was stunning from when we walked in we were wowed by the room. Lounge area downstairs with bathroom with awesome shower and twin sinks, upstairs to the bedroom on mezzanine and the bath, what can i say, it fits two!!! was also left a little birthday teeat. The lady who checked us in and the one who checked us out were friendly and polite. Thanks for helping make my birthday so speacial. Only downside is the room was awfully hot and only a little window could be opened and the air con was upstairs so didnt help keep us cool in lounge area. Would deffo recommend

We popped in on the off chance for lunch after our coronation street tour. We had two 8yr old girls and I was unsure if we needed to book.
The staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble, there was no room inside so they opened up an outside terrace for us.
Ordered the soup and a snack for the girls and it was delicious.
The trouble is I want to go back and stay the night now x
