This is a lovely boutique hotel situated in a back street round the corner from the old Granada/ITV studio. Its such a gem and a huge find, has a lovely unique feel.

Ate at a wedding here - the food was simply excellent. The service and staff were spot on and the views and terrace are beautiful.

Spent the afternoon here earlier in the year at a wedding. It was great for all the wedding guests however I would think twice before booking this hotel as a guest for the weekend as if there are weddings on, many use the rooftop area so...for guests it is out of bounds. This would really annoy me if I had... More

What a find. A fabulous roof top garden for a drink or two on a dry night! Nice seating area with pleasant views of Manchester at night. Check before you go though - it is quite often booked out for private functions.

The rooftop lounge and terrace is a perfect location for a wedding and we had a barbecue buffet with the children playing hopscotch and outdoor jenga etc which kept them all happy and occupied on the day. Brilliant wedding venue. Faultless.

We attended a recent wedding at the Great John Street Hotel, and whilst the venue was fantastic, the roof top bar is lovely, the staff were hit and miss, with a couple of them down right rude and unnecessarily aggressive. The ceremony was fine, and the food started off great with a fish platter to start which went down a... More
