    Building stunning - avoid the trainline

    Stunning stunning building, usually stay at the Lowry but thought would try the historic building. Start was great a wonderful girl who checked me in -0 sadly having unpacked my room I was on a train line!!!!!! I kid you not right outside my window - avoid 158......moved without hassle to a smaller but better located room. WIFI did not work for the duration of my stay so tethered my phone - all other stuff - bar - restaurant - all good

    Delay at checkin and one of pour rooms was not ready when we checked in meant we had to put back our restaurant booking and had to get changed to go out in one room but the staff were very helpful and we were offered free breakfast , they were very apologetic as there had been a big conference at the hotel the day before and it had put them back with their cleaning schedule but our second room was ready really quickly . Thank you to all the staff

    Lovely hotel overall

    Hotel and service were fantastic but sadly my room was not as expected. It was in the basement and very noisy overnight with no proper windows/light.
