Reviewed 16 January 2012

Nice hotel located within walking distance from Picadilly station and about 15 minutes from the main street of shops. The hotel reception staff were friendly and concierge helpful, check in and out was painless and fast.

The room was a good size and had all amenities required except an empty mini bar?!
All in all a nice stay and would definitely return.

Check in at 3pm - we arrived at 2.30 and had to have a coffee in the lounge as the room wasn't quite ready. £6 plus for 2 coffees. £4.95 for a bottle of water. £15 each for breakfast. This is obviously how they make the money up. We ate out. Room rates from hotels.com were good and we had a code for January so we got 10% off too HCJAN10. Room cost us £72. £12 parking in addition, car park first come first served. You can keep watch on the camera for people leaving.
Lovely room - very comfortable bed, bath, shower, ipod dock, tea coffee facilities in the room. Definitely recommend. Staff very polite. Enjoyed the stay. Just over the road from Piccadilly train station.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night whilst in Manchester for a concert. When we arrived we were greeted by very pleasant and efficient reception staff. I was bought a gold spa package for Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed it - it was well worth the money, the therapists were very nice and tended to my every need. We found it to be very quiet which made a nice change from being woken by heavy slamming doors. Don't pay for the car park though.. they charge £15 but just behind the hotel there is an NCP which charges £6.50 for 24 hours. Would highly recommend to anyone.

A couple of minutes walk from Piccadilly station makes it a great place to stay for shopping and rail travel. The staff are efficient and welcoming. The rooms are clean spacious and modern. Would definately stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade when you arrive, they will probably offer you one for £20 in any case.

An absolute gem, a little walk to city centre but the hotel has a taxi service that gets you to opera house other side of city for 4 pound, just part of their excellent service, rooms big, bed big, shower excellent nothing to complain about, room service and food fantastic and they have lots of offers on for residents at the spa, stay in manchester a lot and we paid same price as a travelodge to stay in pure luxury loved it well done

I m still staying here right now, overall the service n food is great. But if we knew it was a non smoking hotel, we'll definitely not have booked this hotel. Located just walking distance from Piccadilly station but we had too much luggages so we booked a return private cab airport transfers that costs abt £40. Which I think was quite reasonable. Hotel room is huge but we were given a handicap room so there was no shower cabinet... Overall I would grade it 4stars as the staff here were really helpful and polite... Would stay here again if they become a smoking hotel... Really troublesome to walk down to smoke in the cold outside.

We stayed at this hotel on New Years Eve and were generally very happy. The hotel is large and fairly close to the main parts of the city centre. It is located about 200m from Piccadilly Train Station, so access from there is easy. We took the car, but were dissappointed to find that their own car park was full and we had park on a nearby NCP car park. The NCP cost £6.50 for 24hrs which ias about half of what the hotel charge for theirs, however, it is not as secure.

The hotel itself was excellent, with oversize bedrooms and a very comfy bed. Our bathroom featured both a bath and walk-in shower and everything was very clean. Breakfast was very good, with a vast selection of items.

It is not as central to the city as soom alternative 4* hotels and takes between 10-15 minutes to walk into the heart of the city. Ok for us as it was dry, but would be a pain if it was raining!

Overall, a good hotel and we would recommend.
