    Superb

    Very attractive and comfortable room with great bathroom. The room was extremely bright and spacious.

    The gym was very small for the size of the hotel and the aircon was not sufficient when there were at least 8 of us working out at the same time.

    Room was spacious and fitted to a high spec,staff friendly and attentive.

    Car parking very limited,with poor signage to find it

    Superb

    The room was a very good size and the furnishings were great. Even though there were many large parties of celebrating people, it was very quiet. I would definitely stay here again. It's location is ideal - less than 5 minute walk from Manchester Picadilly train station.

    Superb

    The room was spacious, comfortable, and well equipped, allowing me to both work and relax in the evenings. And very close to the rail station and to central Manchester, making it an excellent base.

    Just a minor thing, but on the one occasion I needed to call room service, I had to call them twice.

    At first glance seems like a nice hotel.

    Massive queues checking in, fire alarm went off in the middle of night, staff could not turn it off. Member of public phoned alarm company and took hours to stop finally left early in the morning having not slept in room but sat in lobby WORST THING IS CUSTOMER SERVICE AFTERWARDS - problems occur but refunds should have been made. Been totally ignored for 3 1/2 weeks then offered take it or leave it offer of discount for future stay to use within 6 months. APPALLING JUST PRAY YOU DON’T HAVE PROBLEMS.

    The outside, reception desk and bar make you think it's an average hotel, but once you go past this the rooms and the Spa are absolutely lovely..far nicer than i imagined and love the massive windows. Fab bathroom facilities and quality finishing touches. Just wish the entrance and reception desk did the rest of the building justice. Also the parking was about £15 overnight and it didn't matter what time you arrived or left which was very good. Private and secure too which was a bonus,

    A very good price for the quality of hotel and especially not paying extra for being a single traveller. Very comfortable spacious room and quiet. Location convenient for rail and tram links (travelled to Manchester Picadilly from Cheltenham) and used the tram for getting around the city. The purpose of the trip was to see the Victoria Wood production at the Opera House, 'That day we sang'. I visited also the Lowry and the People Museum. Excellent breakfast and very attentive service from Polly.

    I had to wait a while at check-in before being served (between five and ten minutes), as there were only two people on duty (at 5:30). A third colleague offered to help me but was called away to deal with another client's query. A chair near reception would be handy ( I have a poorly foot at the moment). Good city maps available at reception would be useful (not photocopies). Overall very happy with my stay and would like to pay another visit. Could you sign me up for your points scheme?
