Beautiful hotel in a grand period building but modernized with a fresh twist on tradition. Nice little details (like free minibar in room) and a great breakfast offering. Incredibly helpful staff too. Plus the location is awesome!

The first floor options in the pub and restaurant are truly amazing. This alone is worth the stay. It is VERY hold, but that is what we loved about it. So much character around every corner. The breakfast was AMAZING! I highly recommend this place if you are staying in Manchester.

I would rate this hotel 4/5. It is a beautiful building with beautiful rooms and great service. On arrival our rooms were upgraded from basement rooms to first floor rooms. This sounded amazing, and the rooms were immaculate, however the long sized bed rooms we had booked had been replaced with two double rooms and (lucky for my sister-in-law) a super king room. I was a little disappointed at the smaller bed sizes in the two rooms but there wasn’t time to complain as we were busy heading off to the Ed Sheeran concert, and everything else was spot on (reception staff did not ask if our stay was ok on leaving either). Staff were friendly and kindly topped up our tea bags on request late at night. Nothing seemed too much of a request according to in-room information on card in the bathroom and on the (very posh) TV. Great selection of snacks and hot drinks In the ‘tuck box’ in the room. If you stay on a Saturday night expect a bit of noise from the DJ in the bar until around midnight. This was no issue for us. Overall a lovely stay, but a shame about the smaller than expected beds in two out of three rooms. I would return.
