My wife and I stayed here for 10 days. We had a lovely time. The room has great amenities and the gym was top quality. I’d wholeheartedly suggest this hotel apartment to anyone staying in Manchester.

A great hotel
We had a lovely stay in Manchester and the hotel was great. It was for my birthday, so we notified the hotel prior to our arrival. They didn’t have to do anything, but they went out of the way to give us two free drink vouchers. Overall, it was great service.

Good 6.0
Great hotel but noisy location
Great staff and super decor and vibe. However, no sleep as room on first floor overlooking very busy and noisy road.
Michelle, gb1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Great central stay
We thought the hotel was lovely - just like the pictures and breakfast at Foundation and dinner at the Peruvian restaurant were fantastic! It was great to be able to book extras before the stay, but we were disappointed to find that, having booked yoga mats and a yoga lesson, that it wasn’t until we arrived that we were told the yoga session was cancelled. We were told yoga mats had been put in our room - they hadn’t. All in all would stay again, but communication could be improved.

Perfect place to stay.
Brilliant hotel with wonderful rooms and style. The only one fault was that the rooms can be a bit warm and hard to cool down.
