My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. During the check-in, the counter lady attending to us was great, told us about all the services available in the hotel, e.g. free wireless, complimentary DVDs for viewing, gym, etc. She offered to reserve breakfast for our stay, as well as for dinner that night. Pleasant service attitude!
Upon entering our room, we were pleasantly surprised with the decor and the en-suite facilities. 3 stars?? you gotta to be kidding, it has to be higher! iMac entertainment system (which easily converts from a TV into a desktop PC - keyboard/mouse included), well stocked bar, contemporary themed decor. Praises for the revolutionary entertainment system, only downside is the inability to switch the TV on via the remote control. you need to walk up to the TV to switch it on (just like the power button on the PC).
Went down to browse through the DVD titles, i must say it is a decent list, with at least, conservatively, 25 titles to loan. Not to mention Cd albums too! Went for dinner at cafe and, boy!, was the food good or was it good? No brainer for me. Had a 2 course meal and I enjoyed the appetizer most - prawn salad. A definite must try that is topped off with a king prawn.
We were thoroughly impressed with the hotel and i wouldn't mind forgoing time touring Manchester city to stay and indulge in the services and keep ourselves occupied with the DVDs!
Don't ever go to this hotel just for a sleepover, you are shortchanging yourself. Spend a day IN the hotel and indulge!
