The Lowry is under new management and I'm over the moon. Apart from our perfect wedding reception at this hotel a few years ago our latest return to the venue has been the best ever. There appears to be a calm efficiency and a lighter touch to providing top notch service without the condescending snootiness we've experienced on previous visits. The Lowry is on the boundary of Manchester and Salford, named after one of the region's humblest characters and it's the same unpretentious charm that will be a hit with its guests.
Very spacious, well furnished apartments, set within a well maintained and attractive building and well positioned for the city centre. The staff were very friendly and helpful and gave the impression of nothing being too much trouble. It isn't too often that somewhere like this exceeds your expectations, but The Place certainly did.
If I had one small quibble, one of the lifts was out of order, which meant queues inevitably formed for the remaining lift, which did lead to some long waits at times - but frankly, it happens, I'm sure this was dealt with as soon as was possible, so really more of a passing mention than a complaint.

Really nice hotel apartment, clean, tidy, spacious, and lovely facilities.
Having mostly no internet for my three day visit was frustrating also the water mixer taps were tricky to get just right - scolding or freezing.
