Lovely hotel, within walking distance of the Northern Quarter for shopping, Chinatown across the road but not intrusive. Considering in city centre room nice and quiet. Breakfast very nice, stayed mid-week and not too busy but didn't feel empty. We used our tesco vouchers so was great value! Recommended.

Stayed last week for one night - £85. Terrific value. Recently refurbed rooms. Great location, friendly staff and great breakfast.

Actually a far better place to stay than the big McDonalds at Piccadilly.

I stayed here last week after reading glowing reviews on this website. I was pretty disappointed.

My room was right beside the lift, (I asked to move, but to no avail) so was very noisy, leading to a very average night's sleep. The room was also freezing, even when I turned the air con up (the was also an electric oil heater in the room, which I thought was very unusual and I eventually had to use). The room was also overlooked by an office which I only realised this after an hour of slouching about in my underwear.

There was no information on the telephone for an outside line/ reception/ calling other rooms, so I had to guess (not exactly 4 star attention to detail...). The toilet bowl was also full of toilet paper when I lifted the lid. I flushed immediately as I really didn't want to know what was underneath.

I also thought the hotel had as much character as a multi story car park.

On the plus side, i thought the staff were genuinely friendly and the breakfast was good. The bed was also very comfortable.

I got a special offer of GBP85 for the night, but it is usually circa 130, which I would consider very bad value.

I stay in Manchester 5/6 times a year and usually stay in a hotel very close to this one. I won't be staying in the Macdonald Townhouse again.

This hotel is beautifully presented and ideally located for shopping and exploring in Manchester. We booked a Spring Deal and got dinner included. We ate in the Brasserie Restaurant and the food was perfect, good menu and amazing flavours. The cocktails were also very good!
We ended up in a suite, 211, a room i would recommend and request when we stay there again. One of the best nights sleep ever.
Breakfast had everything we wanted and more.
