Fabulous 8.8 From 841 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Beautiful
Beautiful hotel with fantastic facilities. A very busy location. Service was excellent as was the breakfast. Ate in the restaurant and bar, very happy. Will recommend but maybe not for light sleepers. Located right by train line and close to station so may be an issue for some. The Concierge was particularly attentive and helpful.

Very good 8.0
Adequate
Lovely building, it’s apparently recently refurbished but not to a fantastic quality. The shower is adequate but nothing more. I was expecting more for the price and rating. Plenty of other hotels at a similar price point in Manchester. I wouldn’t avoid again, but wouldn’t rush back.
