Loved my stay here, convenient for central Manchester. Lots of excellent dining options close by. Lovely touches like a v60 brewer and treat box included. The only thing missing was caffeinated coffee! And I’m sure I could have asked for some, I found a great brew at a local coffee shop.

The hotel is in a convenient location, occupies a great building and the rooms are comfortable. The staff were generally all very nice, particularly the reception staff and the waiter who served us in the restaurant. They did however appear very over worked with very long shifts. Breakfast was disappointing. It is served buffet style and on both mornings the food was at best tepid, with several items being simply cold. The same can be said of room service. The food arrived, but was tepid. And only one set of cutlery was included for two meals.

Third stay here. This one was the least good. Major building work at the back meant we were woken by a squeaky winch at 6am every morning. The TV in the room didn’t work either. Breakfast was good and the bar area nice
