Wonderful hotel”

We loved our stay. We were originally staying at the Lowry hotel with more friends but myself and a friend decided to cancel that hotel and stay at the Midland. (Correct decision). We stayed 2 nights, and used the Spa 3 times. I personally felt it had space, luxury and a relaxed feeling. When I come to stay in Manchester next time I will be staying at this hotel. My only downside is that our room did not include breakfast as I would have loved to have dined in the hotel. I know I could have upgraded but my budget did not allow. Overall, we loved it and will be staying again if the price is reasonable.

A fantastic experience ”

We had a wonderful stay at the Midland Hotel Manchester. Excellent value for money, all staff were exceptionally polite, helpful, friendly & extremely professional i.e. all reception staff involved in checking in & out, bag drop off & collection. Nothing was too much trouble. The lounge bar was a fantastic place to sit, chill & have our drinks brought to us by a very obliging, attentive staff member as were the staff behind the bar. The cleanliness throughout was of an excellent standard. A huge thanks to everyone there we met who made our stay awesome. Will definitely be staying again Thanks again to you all 💐

Great hotel in Manchester”

First of all, I heard that the streets in Manchester is quiet tough and was bit worried, but the hotel was in a very clean and bright square so was not much to worry about safety or anything. The tram station was in a 5 min inside walk and the cabs always was waiting in front of the hotel. The building was great looking outside that it made us happy and the inside was also fabulous. Breakfast satisfied and think I will definitely visit here again. I visited the Manchester Etihad stadium and it only took me less than a half of hour. 한국분들도 트램과 광장이 바로 앞에 있어 안전에 문제가 없고 상권이 바로 앞이라 다니기가 너무 좋았습니다. 트램도 요즘에는 정거장에서 바로 표 발권이 되기 때문에 호텔로 바로 가 나가는데 안성맞춤, 맨시티 구장 갈 때도 너무 편했습니다.

Classic Comfortable Convenient

I first heard about the Midland hotel through a BBC documentary about the renovated restaurant The French and decided that I'd like to visit. So when I needed to find a place to stay in Manchester recently it was top of my list. I was impressed that the Spa facilities were available to us as guests and my girlfriend made ample use and we were able to enjoy some cocktails at Mr Coopers so we were spoilt for choice.

Silver Wedding Anniversary ”

I booked this as a perfect meeting point to meet up with friends who also married 25 Years ago on the same day in the same place. They traveled from Liverpool and we traveled from York. I notified the hotel of this. When we arrived we checked in and had drinks in the bar. Service was great. Both our selves and our friends then went to our rooms to find we had cakes and a bottle of Prosecco each waiting for us along with a card from The Midland Wishing is a happy Anniversary. We then booked and proceeded down to the spa for use of the pool and sauna facilities which were fantastic. Sitting in the pool drinking our Prosecco from pool safe glasses. My wife left her purse in the room after we checked out. I then notified the hotel. We then returned a couple of hours later. All was found. The staff were amazing and so attentive to our needs. Well done Team Midland!!!

Mum and Daughter weekend”

The hotel is classic in style, this doesnt mean drab by any standards. Rooms have grand high ceilings and beautiful furniture with two large double beds and a lounge area with two sofas we were more than comfortable. The spa facilities were very nice with a Himilayan Salt Sauna and Steam room. Good size hotel pool and I used the gym in the morning which had everything a person would require for an excellent workout. We had room service on the evening of our stay as a treat for my daughter and the food was excellently cooked to perfection and served promptly! Everything could do with a good shine to spruce it up but honestly, a really lovely hotel with great staff and a perfect location to explore Manchester, I will certainly return.

Nice refurbished rooms, great pool and gym”

The new rooms are nice, I was told all rooms have now been refurbished. The lobby was under construction (25 Aug 2020) but the rest of the hotel was open. I particularly liked the gym - full of proper equipment split over 2 levels with cleaning facilities. The pool was also clean and modern and looked newly refurbished. The jacuzzi was great, and very hot. Location wise its bang on, in the middle of Manchester, but this also means parking is a bit of a nightmare. I was able to book parking online at the Mercure Hotel for two nights for around £25, and it was only a short walk away. Overall great hotel, and great stay.

Refurbished Rooms ”

The Midland is currently undertaking a face lift. The advertisement on the website is somewhat misleading; not all rooms are refurbished, so you have to request one! The reception area looks great, with the added bonus of the new appointed bedrooms. We had afternoon tea with family, dinner and stayed for several nights, not leaving the hotel once. A great place to relax and unwind with attentive staff. Watch out for the parking fee - this needs to be clarified beforehand or you will receive a costly parking fee.

Great location, amazing building, some attention to detail lacking”

We had a wonderful stay at the Midland. It is such a great location and iconic building, a very special date night for us. The breakfast was great and the staff were fantastic. Our room was ok but a few items lacking, the shower curtain was cheap and nasty and the shower rail kept collapsing. The shower had parts missing and the sink didn’t have a plug. All small things but would have expected better for the price and reputation.

Great place unless you want to sleep.....”

Great central location, great facilities(unless you are under 18 and can't use the gym/have very limited access times to the Spa). Mr Coopers restaurant was excellent for dinner and breakfast where the staff were exceptional. My main issue is that the whole point of a hotel is being able to sleep which was nigh on impossible at the Midland unless you put in ear plugs due to the ancient very noisy air conditioning system. As a city centre hotel you need the windows shut and rely on the air con to keep the room cool enough to sleep. here you can either have quiet or a cool room, not both. I used 2 different rooms after the first one on the fifth floor had a system that wasn't cooling the air, it just made lots of noise. A second room was offered on the third floor 327 where the noise from the system was ridiculous. If you have a problem sleeping at a Premier Inn they refund your accommodation cost, not at the Midland, where you just get an apology from reception. Not good enough Midland.

Beware Parking!”

If you're driving then you would normally park at the NCP carpRk next door... the old Midland Railway Station? BEWARE, this is prime hunting ground for Manchester’s criminal underclass so take all your stuff with you when you leave the car there. Leave NOTHING on display or you’ll come back to find your windows smashed in and your gear gone. The hotel is lovely, by the way.
