Beautiful room, gorgeous bed, chandeliers, heavy drapes, big mirror... We were brought a tea tray within 5 minutes with biscuits in a little jar- these...

Lovely hotel, stylish and tasteful. Attentive staff and lovely extras like home cooked biscuits and fresh milk in the room. Biggest most comfortable bed ever and breakfast was also top notch. Nicely situated easy walk to most of Manchester central.

The quirky rooms, service and all the staff are fantastic, I cannot recommend this hotel enough. In room food basket & mini bar are great as is the full breakfast, if you have space enough after the evening meal.

We stayed in the room with the big bath. The room was nice. We stayed for a week. On the 4th night our bottle of water left in the ice bucket disappeared after we returned from dinner. Housekeeping had done a very messy turn down and we assumed they took it as rubbish. The next day I was walking in...

We have stayed in numerous of the contempary rooms and been delighted with them all. Breakfast is special and great value for money. It's location is both lively and interesting but we were not disturbed by the lateness of the bars in the area.
