Lovely hotel with super friendly staff
Hotel was lovely - decorated and furnished really well. Staff were so so so friendly and made us feel very welcome. Room was huge but slightly disappointing that there wasn’t any dairy alternative milk options to have with teas / coffees. Also, you could hear EVERYTHING from other rooms so a difficult night’s sleep if you’re a light sleeper. Would definitely recommend though just based on the amazing location and lovely staff!

8/10 Very good

A decent choice for a central stay in Manchester
A really nice hotel in a great central location. Very quiet, comfy room although a little let down by a couple of signs of wear and tear (lose bathroom tiles, cracked sink and hole in carpet ). Nothing that really impacted our stay so would still recommend to others.
