My fiancée and I stayed here Thursday evening so that we could get all of our Christmas shopping done over Thursday and Friday and visit the Christmas markets. We managed to book a superior room on a deal with breakfast included. I had stayed at the Mercure in Bristol in October which was excellent and we wanted a similar experience. We were not disappointed. We parked in the hotel car park on arrival on Thursday morning until we left at 4pm on Friday and we only paid £25 for this which is the cheapest parking charge for this period we've found in central Manchester and certainly cheaper than return train tickets. The location of the hotel is absolutely brilliant. We are fortunate enough to know Manchester very well, but as a visitor, you can rest assured that you are right next to the main shopping area, Arndale Centre and a stones throw away from the Printworks. The hotel staff were very friendly and more than happy to check us in early. The room was lovely. We had a very comfortable super kingsize bed with a two seat sofa, coffee table and flatscreen television with on demand movies included of which there was a great choice. The good sized dressing table also housed a Nespresso machine which was a big bonus and we could access the higher speed Wi-Fi at no extra cost. Although the bathroom was small, it was very clean and the bath was very comfortable and the hot water plentiful. We ate in the restaurant on Thursday evening which was excellent. The food was awesome (as I had also experienced in Bristol) and the view rom the restaurant is over Piccadilly gardens which is lovely with all the Christmas lights on at night. Breakfast again was very good and the staff friendly and helpful. We had a great stay and we wont hesitate to return.
