    We stayed here when attending a concert . Great location , lovely hotel only slight downfall was the lift to the spa area was broken so you had to go down and out of hotel to building next door . Whilst the spa was lovely they didn’t have a pool and as one member was expecting this would of been the only option for her at the time . Would still stay here again though

    Not so great”

    The hotel room condition is kind of old. We had problem with the toilet flash and there is no heater provided in the toilet & room. There were also some bug flying around in the room which we are not able to get it off. We didn’t request for change of room as it was already 10pm. We just deal with it till the next morning and checkout at 9am. The furnitures and the curtain made the room so dark and the lights were insufficient. Overall I will not consider this hotel in future. Just not comfortable.

    very good hotel!”

    location, size of the room, cleanliness

    this hotel is located on london road in manchester, it is very strategically located. as i took a train up from london to manchester piccadilly, it only took me a while to get to the hotel from the train station. on top of that i was pleasantly happy with the size of the room provided. it was definitely bigger than what i need and ive got nothing to complain since all i ask for from a hotel is the clealiness.

    Good”

    We requested for late check out on the evening before the last day and the reception confirmed no problem. While we checked out on the last day the reception asked us to pay £20 late check out fee. This charge had never been mentioned when we requested for late check out. We argued with tHe receptionist and she said that the fee could be waived this time but requested us to “bear in mind” that they had the so called late check out fee. We were angry and requested her to ask their staff to “bear in mind to notify the guests about the charge instead.

    Hotel only 2 minute walk from Manchester Piccadily station & only 12 minute walk to Manchester opollo theatre. Hotel clean & ready when we arrived staff polite & helpful the only downfall was rude loud guests when going to their rooms early hours of the morning showing no respect for other people staying there. Excellent location for thatre.

    Unapologetic staff”

    I booked into my room fairly happy with the choice of hotel. Having unpacked I headed for the gym and use of the thermal spa. Upon my return to my room, my key card didn't work. I went straight to reception who unapologetically told me they had booked someone else into my room. The person had entered my room, seen personal belongings there are returned to reception. They told me that they had not sorted it out and booked the other individual into another room. I went straight to my room, still couldn't get in with the updated key and found a member of staff then come out of the room. I told her I wasn't very happy that someone had come in my room given that all my belongings were there unattended. She apologised and sent someone to provide me with an updated card. The lock inside the door didn't work, I therefore went to bed with the chain on my door and worried the whole night that someone would try to come in. The attitude and action of the staff was extremely disappointing

    Clearer pricing needed”

    Lovely hotel large room and bathroom unfortunately they stop serving food at 10pm just as we arrived back from seeing the artist at the nearby Apollo venue the bar was filled with people wanting something to eat, we had a drink and went to our room to use the expensive 24hr room service only to find again we could not order as kitchen had closed but a cold sandwich was offered which was not what we wanted and a menu with a selection of meals on offer for 24h should not be offered if not actually available we then sent out for a takeaway. Also when I booked I thought it was b&b only to be told as we arrived at breakfast we had to pay for breakfast which was £18 each and with the overnight car park at an extra £20 made this an expensive overnight stay. The prices should be more clearly indicated on the wed sites they advertise on just to say car parking indicates included as no price shown. The staff could not be more helpful and the hotel was in a good location for us.

    One of the nicest hotels that I've stayed in, not only for the room but for the staff as well. Special mention for the man on reception later on in the evening of 11/6/17 who gave us slippers after a heavy day at Parklife Festival. I'll definitely be back again soon.
