Really impressed at the Light Aparthotel - our room was upgraded upon arrival which was a nice touch. Apartment was spacious, clean and homely, and the complementary breakfast was delicious. We had a very peaceful sleep on the 11th floor, and the staff were all lovely. Couldn't fault anything about our stay, would recommend the Light Aparthotel for anyone visiting...

We stayed here on a Friday night in February and absolutely loved it! Firstly, our room was upgraded for us which kicked off our stay to a great start! The suite was spacious and very comfortable, modern and well kept! The balcony was an added bonus too...despite the usual Manchester weather preventing its use!!! We used the bar too, later...

I stayed in the aparthotel with my husband last week and I was very impressed, firstly the reception was more like a posh hotel! We then found out we had been upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment on the 14 floor with a balcony! The apartment had everything we needed and more! It was just a shame we only stayed...

My wife and i decided to go to Manchester for a random night out. We found this place on a late bookings app and it was brilliant. Great location and great value for money. Only issue is that there was very little hot water. something to fix!

I have stayed here many times before and always rate it as one of the best hotels of its kind - great location and reasonable rates. The room I was allocated on this occasion however was on one of the lower floors and I really didn't like the layout - long and narrow. There was absolutely nothing wrong with it,...

We hired an apartment with private hot tub for a friends surprise 40th birthday. She was overwhelmed to say the least. The staff at the hotel went far beyond their duties to ensure that everything was perfect. From ensuring that on arrival, the champagne was on ice next to the hot tub, to balloons in the lounge and a few...

Dear Tc H Thank you for the lovely review from your stay here with us recently and for sharing your experience here with others.

The room was great. It had a kitchenette, double bed (probably not the best mattress but more than comfortable), bathroom with nice big shower. It also even had a washing machine which came in really handy. It was in a great location, close to the good shopping in the northern quarter but also close to the more commercialised city square...
