Townhouse Hotel Manchester
Ranked #48 of 120 Hotels in Manchester
Reviewed 9 November 2011

We had previously stayed at the sister hotel the Macdonald Spa earlier in the year and this was equally as good. We chose this hotel as it was centrally located in the city centre for the gig we where attending. Walking distance from Manchester Piccadilly (if you wish) or a small inexpensive taxi ride.
We where greeted kindly by the manager and was more than helpful in advising best restaurants and bars to visit. Chinatown literally across the road and the metropolis of Spinningfields close by.
Double room was spacious and spot-less, good view of Portland Street and Piccadilly. Bar was quiet for the end of August but this suited us, with good selection of wines and beers.
The bathroom was clean and what you would expect of a Macdonald, however some of the grouting around the bath was in need of TLC.
That aside, our stay there was enjoyable and would definitely recommend to any other visitors to the city.

This is the smaller sister hotel to the Manchester MacDonald (which is also fantastic). The Townhouse has something of a boutique feel and has recently undergone a major refurbishment. The rooms are generous in size and are well decorated and clean. Beds are comfy although you might want to try and avoid rooms overlooking the street as it can occasionally be a little noisy.

The bar is open all night and service is friendly and prompt. There is also a fantastic restuarant with some lovely dishes - sausages are recommended!! Great wine list too.

Location is great with easy access to both Manchester Picadilly and tram stops. Definitely worth a stay!

After reading some of these reviews I was actually slightly apprehensive about this. If you do your research properly it's not difficult to find at all - on the corner of princess street and portland st which is very handy when you're navigating / looking at a map. It's a very short walk from Picadilly Gardens.

You do however need to look for 'The Princess Hotel' rather than the MacDonald Townhouse, something I was quite relieved that I'd noticed on Tripadvisor. I phoned the hotel in the morning telling them that we were driving and asking about parking etc. The receptionist was very friendly and told us exactly where to park - £17 per 24hours in the Q Park on St James St. About a 2 minute walk from the entrance of the hotel.

Check in was was very friendly and efficient. I had booked an 'exectuive room' (through their website) but when we got there found out we had been upgraded, without request, to a suite, which was lovely and consisted of a lounge, a big bathroom and a bedroom, it had a bathrobe and slippers each as well, but only one small bottle of sparkling water, which I found a bit odd! I didn't find noise a problem at all although we were only on the 1st floor but that might be because the bedroom part of the suite was at the back and there wasn't actually a window - although it was very cleverly designed to look like there was a window there - with a big curtain which was lightened from behind. I didn't find this a problem as I found the lighting etc added to the ambience.

Breakfast was fab - friendly, proffessional and efficient service, and also really tasty. We were celebrating our anniversary and received a card and some drinks on the house as well which was a really nice touch.

All in all in my opinion a very nice modern city centre hotel for a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade - we got one without even asking!

Myself and my wife stayed for four nights as a trip away for our wedding anniversary.
our room was decorated beautifully, the bathroom was just gorgeous! everything was absolutely spotless, the bed was so comfy! The staff were lovely and friendly, especially one manager who couldn't do enough for us.
hotel is located on portland street, bring ear plugs if your a very light sleeper.its in a perfect spot for manchester city centre, china town and the gay village and close to transport links. i would absolutely go back again!

Room Tip: Rooms on portland street are a bit noisy from the traffic outside

This hotel was not easy to find as the signs say Princess Hotel, relieved to find it in the end. The public areas of the hotel are all very nice and the staff are very helpful and polite. The room was very tastfully decorated, clean and comfortable the only downside was the noise from outisde, an awful lot of sirens all night long, I know it is a busy city centre but they were just so loud and we was on the 5th floor also we could clearly hear the people in the room next door to us. Need to sound proof the windows at least, shame as it would have been somewhere I definatley would have stayed again.
