Arrived at the hotel less than a 10 minute wander from the train station, we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist (Rebecca - who seemed to be on duty 24/7 and always had a smile on her face).

Positives of the hotel:
Central location, found it really easily not sure what all the other reviewers were on about. Obviously can't read a map!
Friendly receptionist.
Room was large and spacious, with a four piece bathroom suite. Our room was on the 5th floor we heard a little of the traffic below but it is the price you pay for central locations.

Negatives:
We ate in the resturant on our first evening, food wasn't the best not sure if that was due to it being a Sunday night.
Breakfast on our first two days was very good (although my husband did moan that he only got half a slice of black pudding). On our final day breakfast was terrible, toast that wasn't toasted (so technically bread!), bacon and mushrooms burnt, sausages pink in the middle and poached eggs so poached they were hard boiled egg. To disguise the burn pepper was put all over dish - somepeople don't like pepper. I waited about 5 minute to speak to somebody about my breakfast but nobodyw was around so I left the breakfast un-eaten. Additionally every morning I had to check at least three bowls before pouring cereal in, bad dishwashing!

Would I go back - if I got a really good rate for the central location, would I pay £17.50 for breakfast NO!

Room Tip: Ask for 5th floor.

This hotel was so nice, there was some building work being done to the exterior of the hotel so we were automatically upgraded to a better suite and given a free breakfast.

The suit was lovely very relaxing, huge bath and separate huge shower, lovely robes and slippers provided so you could totally chill out after a day/night out.

The staff were informative, thoughtful and friendly. I loved it, am looking to stay with MacDonald hotels elsewhere now.

Manchester was great, as usual and is becoming one of my favorite places to visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear to have triple glazing so noise really wasn't an issue, you are in the town center though so its going to be bright outside all night.

Very friendly and compentent staff. No effort was too much. Hotel has a great location and was a lot less nousy as I frist thought it would be. Restaurant is very good also. Free internet and a very decent price. I woud go back any time.

Two minus points: - room was rather small and had painted over windows.

Very stylish and comfortable city centre hotel. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. I think it's recently been refurbished and it shows - everything is very new and of a high standard. Beds were very comfy and had a great night's sleep; despite being in the city centre it was very quiet in the room.
Breakfast was very good, and the restaurant/bar area again very stylish and cool.
Overall a very good hotel.

All round lovely hotel with great staff. Nothing was to much trouble. Spacious, clean rooms with lovely bathrobes.
Didnt eat in the hotel but it looked really busy. Had a few drinks in the bar in the evening, very comfortable with big comfy sofas and a great atmosphere.
Would definatly recommened and will stay again.
