Wonderful venue for a city wedding. Relaxed atmosphere throughout our stay. Excellent, friendly service from staff. Nothing was too much trouble even though the wedding was in full swing. Well done and thank you!

The event planner was fantastic, so patient and with a great eye for detail. The staff on the day worked very hard to ensure everything ran smoothly, a very slick operation. Beautiful decor, rooms are luxurious and the roof terrace provides a great view of Manchester.

This is the third time I've had afternoon tea here and each time has been exceptional. I took my Mum, grandma, sister and teenage daughter as a treat and we all loved it. There's a great selection of sandwiches and delicious cakes, scones with jam and cream and a good choice of teas to accompany it. The setting is lovely...

What a lovely and unique place to enjoy afternoon tea. If you want a hotel with a difference, a relaxed atmosphere, delicious food and attentive staff then this is the perfect place!
