We stayed here for 1 night as we were down in Manchester for a friend's birthday. It's in a brilliant location and was really easy to find. The staff were all lovely and the whole reception and lounge area were nicely decorated and modern - I think it's all been refurbished and they've done a great job. We were in a superior room, which I think was quite basic but adequate - I wouldn't have said it was superior except for the size, which was good and everything was clean and the bed was amazing - was having a good night's sleep until a taxi van, which parked outside our window at 3am, having a very loud telephone conversation, woke us up but that wasn't the hotel's fault - perhaps they could ban them from parking there though - it was at the back of the hotel and we were in room 214. The breakfast was very good and overall we enjoyed staying there and would definitely stay again next time we're in Manchester.
Booked this hotel for our daughter's wedding in a nearby venue. The hotel has lots of character and charm, very popular with local people. All staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are well maintained and comfortable. Food was good, breakfast was tasty and piping hot with very good service. We would return here as a base for the local area under more relaxed situation. Very enjoyable stay
