                I really wanted to love this place”

                Looked like a great boutique from the pictures. The reality was a mediocre check-in experience, and a room that was shabby. There was mold in bathroom, blinds didn’t cover the angled windows over the bed so light streamed in, air conditioning buzzed the whole time it was on (apparently the same in all rooms), and the noise from the clubs went all night. I was aware of the club noise so that’s not a complaint, just an observation for others considering staying.

                The staff were exceptional! Nothing was too much trouble and they were extremely informative about facilities not only in the hotel, but also loads of tips and ideas for our stay in Manchester.The rooms had everything in you could possibly need. Our room was looking a bit tired and could do with a lick of paint soon but it was very clean and the bed very comfy with nice quality sheets and towels.

                I stayed as a treat, attire my grown up daughter for my brothers 60th birthday get together. Opposite a demolition site when we stayed, which was noisy early mornings. Unfriendly or uncooperative staff, in general, and overall I found the decor heavy and a bit oppressive although the balcony room was bright but not a very spacious room. Breakfast was disappointing with solid scrambled egg and no gluten free bread option, as requested. We went to Abel and Gil, for breakfast the next day, which was fab. Overall disappointed

                Unprofessional staff, look elsewhere for a nice experience”

                The unprofessional staff were unable to allow me to sleep in the already paid for room without a 50 pound security deposit. After explaining my bank card was blocked (but could pay the next day) and I have no other options for sleeping in Manchester, they were unflexible and completely lacked any understanding or compassion. They firmly told me to get out of the hotel, and refused to discuss it any further. It left me with my bags on the streets of Manchester, without any other place to go. After walking around for several hours, I managed to join the other 'homeless' people in the train station for a bit of warmth, before my bank opened and I could again get some cash. Worst travel experience in 17 years of business travel as a consultant. Poor training and a lack of any human understanding or flexibility.
