=General review= The interior is nice and the location is perfect for a family travel or a business travel. Most of the staffs are friendly and willing to provide help for people who doesn't speak English. But the internal system in this hotel might raise a huge flag to me. Some of the staffs don't know how to use the...

We have stayed in the Portland under its previous ownership. Although the room décor has improved and the staff remain friendly, cost cutting is evident across the hotel. There is no longer access to a gym and the shampoo/ shower gel is bolted to the walls. Most disappointingly, breakfast is no longer cooked and the continental breakfast is cheap and...

A very quirky room with interesting decor with ridiculously thin walls! The hotel is in a great location and good transport links, and has a really nice restaurant attached to the hotel. The gentleman (didn't catch his name) on reception was extremely helpful and welcoming, a real credit!

This hotel was booked before the change to IBIS. It's a change for the better. Great bed we slept really well. Great location in the city centre. Rooms are not big but who cares when you are staying over. We didn't book breakfast but we arrived and found the change meant that breakfast was now included and it was good....

Stayed one night after meeting friends, public areas were good, room small but clean and modern. Staff were helpful, and the included buffet (continental) breakfast was ok. At the price I paid, I would consider this hotel good value, and well placed on Piccadilly Square.

Had stayed at this hotel under it's previous ownership, it's in a perfect location for exploring Manchester and is comfortable, clean and great value for money. The spa that used to be part of the hotel was no longer in service which is a shame, don't know it there are plans by Ibis to reinstate this or not. Breakfast included...

We were nicely surprised by the décor of this hotel. We have been to a number of Mecure Hotels but this style of hotel was very unusual. It was a very modern functional room with all the essential amenities that you need. The theme of the hotel was "weather" and everywhere on the walls and ceiling were umbrellas, wellies and...

We were initially hesitant due to the recent reviews regarding the ongoing refurb, however we were pleasantly surprised. The entrance is nicely done up and is welcoming, and the check in staff were nice and friendly. Our room was on the 6th floor and despite being a little small, it was more than comfortable. Unfortunately the air-con failed in our...
