Absolutely fantastic, clean, modern apartment. Me and my partner stayed here for 1 night after booking it last minute following a refund on another apartment (city stop apartments) which was dirty and noisy. We were given Studio 1 and it had everything you need - microwave oven, fridge, washing machine, hob, iron & ironing board. The studio was very clean...

I chose this hotel based on its price (relatively short notice booking) and location to the city centre. I messaged them to let them know it was my birthday and they gave me a free room upgrade :) When I arrived they had even decorated the room, which was a nice touch. Room itself was modern, stylish and a nice...

Booked this hotel for my husbands 40th Surprise Birthday. And what a surprise it was for him!! We didn't want to leave. They'd even decorated the room with balloons banners and left him a birthday card. The hot tub was out of this world. I will definitely book here again. Fab place.

In an excellent location in the center of Manchester, very close to the Arndale Centre and lots of restaurants and bars. Service was excellent. We arrived early but they were willing and able to sort us a room- none of the standard 'no check in before 2' rubbish! The rooms are really well equipped and very clean and tidy. Little...
