Boutique Bliss
Great hotel right in the Gay Village of Manchester, so lively (even in these restricted times). Our room was at the back so no street noise from the front but we did get the bottle bank and the bin men, but it is central Manchester, so expected (also we could have shut the windows and used the aircon but didn't) The room was as promised quirky, cool decor, comfortable and very clean. The staff were very helpful and responsive. There is also a good bar and restaurant as part of the same hotel. Location is excellent for all things central Manchester, so much to do and see.

Good 6.0
Great for fun/nightlife stay, not for business.
Lovely hotel, great location and the decor in my room was beautiful. Only downside was the noise, I personally wasn’t disturbed by any music but the walls in this hotel are very thin and I could hear people coming up and down the stairs, stamping around all night so did not get the best night sleep. Although it is lovely, I wouldn’t recommend it for a business trip when you have work the next day.

Great staff, great room, great stay!!
check in was great, I called in early to see if I could leave my case while I went round town, not a problem, lady on reception was a sweetheart, so so friendly and polite. When I returned to check in properly, my case had been taken up to my room. Room was wonderful, and exactly what I’d requested!! Very classy and with A beautiful gothic bed, cool photography and artwork, a huge tv and spacious wardrobe, bath was massive!!! The whole place was spotless and fresh. Stayed midweek so canal street wasn’t that noisy at all and slept with the window open and just had usual city sounds but wasn’t enough to not sleep. Would definitely stay here again, really nice for a night out weekend or to take someone special etc. And again, thank you to the staff, all so friendly and a pleasure to deal with!
