                Located in quiet area in center Manchester, short walk to everything, 24hr supermarket just 1 block behind. Huge hotel, the hallways like a maze but nice, many seatings out front of hotel, building condition 7/10. Classic double room has good space & clean, good insulations, reading lamps at left & right of the bed, but no power socket closed to the bed, no refrige.

                Everything about this hotel was fine except every time we passed through reception the staff were bickering with each other in front of guests. Probably they weren't aware but need reminded that this is not very professional !

                Overall, I had a good stay at the Pendulum. There is a restaurant in the inner yard; students from the affiliated hall of residence stayed there until midnight and made quite a noise. Although not patrons of the Pendulum they were not asked to respect house rules. The staff was well aware of this, but showed no intention to step in. Disappointing.

                Pro’s - located next to a very cheap car park. 10 mins walk to Piccadilly & St. Peter’s Square. 2 minutes off ringroad. Lots of facilities. Helpful and polite staff. Excellent price! Cons - Not in the nicest part of town. Rooms small and dated. Not the comfiest of beds.

                A great hotel with very nice hotel staff and room service. It locates at the University of Manchester which allows you have a comfortable and quiet environment to stay. Amazing food from the hotel bar and restaurant with reasonable price. Sadly, no air-conditioning and freezer are available in room.

                We spent here three days and for the first two we were hypnotised by the actual pendulum in the hotel hall. The location was perfect for our needs and business (close to Piccadilly station) but it took us only ten minutes walk to be in front of the city town hall. Staff very polite and helpful. The room was bigger than expected with complimentary coffee & tea facilities but did not have a fridge. The reception had no qualms in leaving our celebrative bottle of champagne in their fridge for a few hours. We had a jolly good time in this hotel and would like to come back next time. The place is charmingly quirky, English style. Aah... the price we paid was more than competitive with comparative rooms in the same period of our stay in Manchester.

                Stayed here for one night visiting the city, there was a little confusion upon my arrival to check in, the receptionist informed me that the price I'd payed on agoda was a special price only for three nights, to my confusion I asked how this would be possible to book and secondly explained that they would be having not a penny more than the price I'd agreed, the receptionist said it was no problem and he would sort the issue out with the website. Other than that everything was fine, very clean room of a good standard and in a good location.

                easy to find, central location, comfortable room

                I just needed a place close to the station for a late-night arrival and a morning departure, and this place was perfect for that. It is 5 minutes walk from Piccadilly station (you can walk down Granby Row - a section of it is pedestrianised which is why it looks odd on the map). The hotel is in the university area and it was peaceful when I visited (summer holidays, no students). Check-in was quick and easy even at 2300. There is 24 hour room service, but the menu wasn't interesting so I didn't try it. Both the room and the bathroom were a good size for a city hotel.

                Fine except bar is closed”

                Their Garden Bar & Restaurant is closed until the end of March for refurbishment. In the meantime, those amenities are relocated upstairs to the breakfast room, but the ambience is not as good. Otherwise the hotel is running fine. Bedrooms are slightly small though, might be tricky if you have big suitcases.

                I enjoyed my stay. Can get busy if conferences being held. Noisy yard because of students from nearby residence halls (until midnight).
