Stayed here as our work Xmas party was being held at the hotel. The girl who checked us in barely even looked at us during check in let alone crack a smile..took about 10 minutes to check in even though our room was already pre paid. We had a twin room which was very small and quite dated, although clean....

Dear Guest, Firstly thankyou for taking the time to let us know about your stay, we cater to hundreds of guests a week and very few take the time to inform us of their experiences. I’m disappointed to hear you had a poor experience on arrival as we often get very positive feedback from guests about the service & my...

Within about 8 minute walking distance from Piccadilly Station. Central location for all shopping and restaurant areas. Wonderful friendly and helpful staff. Twin bedded room was quite small but had everything needed and was very clean. In the future, I will always stay at this hotel as in my opinion it is perfect.

Ok majority of the rooms are quite small but in fairness for a city break more than adequate. The staff are very polite and courteous and really cannot do enough for you, we would stay again.

Got a great deal on a small double last week. Hotel is in a great location - walking distance to train station, shops, metrolink and restaurants. Rooms are compact - bed is against the wall on one side and bathrooms are abit tired but given what I had paid (£40 a night) it was good value for money. The rooms...

Stayed for one night at the Portland. Check in was quick and easy and the staff were pleasant and friendly. The room was very small and a bit dated, but clean and perfectly fine for a one night stay. Location of the hotel is great and taxi rank right outside so easy to get cab. We parked in the nearest...

Great, central location. Ideal room for a single traveller with a good heating system. Good, strong shower system in a slightly dated but very clean bathroom. Customer service was excellent, nothing was too much trouble. The Gym and pool area is small but the Jacuzzi was wonderful. Breakfast had a good range of tasty hot food plus delicious granola was...

Everything about my friends and my stay was positive. The staff were very helpful, including the supervisor on breakfast on Saturday (5th Dec) and Mohammed our waiter, to the housekeeping staff and reception. The room was very clean and beds exceptionally comfortable. The breakfast was hot and fresh even though we went down late on Saturday and early Sunday. Fantastic...

I had read a few reviews on Trip Advisor after booking this hotel and was very pleasantly surprised. The reception area is very welcoming and the staff were friendly and accommodating.

Right in the centre of Manchester on Piccadilly, you couldn't choose a more convenient location. Rooms are a bit dated, especially the bathroom and we paid an exorbitant price (£170+) for a room only deal for one night. Never has been and won't be my first choice hotel in Manchester but it served it's purpose.

Rooms are small but clean. Staff are excellent had a fabulous meal in the restaurant, breakfast was one of the best we have had in a long time. Overall the hotel is well worth a visit. Parking can be a bit of a problem and the road works don't help.
