Eeyore Loved It Here

Posted 24-Aug-2014
I traveled with a stuffed Eeyore that I sleep with. (Yes, I'm 40 in number only!), and when I would get back to the hotel, the cleaning staff would have him tucked into bed, or reading the menu. It was adorable! The hotel is located close to everything, had very friendly, helpful, smiling staff, and the view of Town Hall out my window was breathtaking!

Clean & comfortable & convenient

Posted 22-Aug-2014
Pros: Modern and clean and everything worked.
Location: The Manchester Art Gallery, Albert Square, the People's History Museum, John Rylands Library, and Manchester Piccadilly are all easily reached.
A great value hotel, which is clean and comfortable, and with central Manchester only a short walk away. Spacious rooms, wonderful breakfast, delightful staff.

Great Facility with Courteous, Accommodating Staff

Posted 19-Aug-2014
Pros: I liked everything about this hotel.
Cons: Don't change a thing! This place has everything I want the way I want it.
Location: The hotel is within easy walking distance of everything I wanted to see, starting with the city art gallery right across the street.
Don't be fooled by the Victorian shell. This facility appears to have been recently and entirely rebuilt on the inside to produce a modern, well furnished hotel with rooms that are larger than the UK standard. Though the hotel is located in the heart of a bustling city, my room was absolutely, blissfully quiet. Usually I avoid hotel restaurants like the plague because so often they are provided solely to justify the claim that the hotel is "full service," and seldom do they provide good value. But at the end of a long day I decided to try the dining room at the Arora. I enjoyed at excellent meal, carefully prepared, very visually appealing, amply portioned, and served with courteous efficiency. Also good value. The staff in Reception and in the restaurant are all attentive, effective, well informed, and genuinely committed to customer service. This is an excellent, comfortable hotel! The location is also superb. Cross the street to enter the municipal Art Gallery. A block away are the architecturally imposing Town Hall and Central Library. And you're a short walk from many other interesting sites, ranging from the John Rylands Library to the Cathedral and the National Football Museum. And a 12-minute walk from the Piccadilly trains station.

Central city location

Posted 05-Aug-2014
Pros: Friendly staff. Nice clean and spacious rooms not over-crowded with furniture.
Cons: Very happy with the hotel service we received.
Location: Easy walk to get to the Coronation St tour site. Also central location made it easy to walk around the central city.
Friendly and efficient staff. Dietary needs attended to rather than just saying sorry, not available. Central location so able to walk to most amenities. Also provided assistance rental car bookings.

Pros: Location,comfort of the room and the helpful and polite staff.
Location: Near to Central library,the art gallery,theatres and a good selection of restaurants catering for all tastes.
Just stayed at the Arora whilst attending my sons graduation and have to say I found the hotel to be excellent.The staff were courteous,helpful and polite and the room was spotlessly clean.Its very conveniently located in central Manchester close to all the landmarks and transport links.Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone visiting Manchester.
