We're in the middle of a 2 night break for my wife's birthday and thoroughly enjoying our stay. We paid extra for an executive room and it's well worth it. Kings side bed is soooooo comfy a she the room is a nice size.

Most impressive thing about the hotel is by far the staff. From the receptionist who booked us in, the staff at breakfast this morning yo the barman tonight they've all been excellent. The hotels totally booked out with a Christmas party and the staff have handled it brilliantly. Even to the point all guests received a letter last night mentioning breakfast would be busy this morning and guest could order room service to avoid queuing

My wife has had a back massage in the spa and hasn't stopped talking about it. Totally recommend this for a nice relaxing break only a gentle 10 mins walk to the city centre.

Room Tip: Book an executive room

I stay in manc a bit and there has always been this ugly construction at the side of the m57 that I have avoided. However once you negotiate the horrid low ceiling reception, the rooms are pretty awesome, big airy and spacious and pretty good. Breakfast was well presented with quality stuff and a real professional maître dit who insists on seeing you to your seat, other hotels could learn a lot from here and him.

Only thing twenty quid to park your car -really? if you want me back, drop this down a bit and I'll be there.

I stayed here in December whilst on business in Manchester. The hotel is excellent. It's situated near Piccadilly station so is a little out of the city centre but that is only a short wall or cab ride away.

My room was stunning with lots of room throughout, a very large bathroom and excellent in room facilities. The huge windows offered fantastic views over the city.

Breakfast was very good with some of the best choices I have had in a chain hotel. Everything tasted very fresh.

My only regret was that I couldn't try the gym or spa due to time constraints.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a very good hotel in Manchester. Princess Ann was staying in the hotel whilst I was there which must speak volumes!

This was a home away from home!
The room and the complimentary upgrade was a perfect end to my day.
The staff were very professional but natural from the front desk to roomservice.
Special thanks to Neil Butler for his outstanding service.
