No complaints about the hotel itself, but the free WiFi was sketchy at best.

Great location. Full of history.

Posted 20-Apr-2015
Pros: The history and building made the stay different. Free wi fi.
Cons: Although both restaurants had good ratings the atmosphere at Mr Coopers was odd and Ididn't fancy the 10 course tasting menu at The French.
Location: It is very near the historic town hall and next to the convention centre.In walking distance of most things.
The staff at this hotel were lovely and they reflect the people of Manchester. I did feel a little like Miss Marple with all the cream teas, piano music and soft chairs. The hotel and room felt spacious. I was aware that the hotel had seen grander days but this didn't spoil anything as I had a good deal with Expedia. Easy transport links.

Hotel d'époque

Posted 16-Apr-2015
Pros: Architecture, positionnement
Cons: Moquette et papier peint des couloirs. Petit déjeuner.
Location: Très bon restos tout autour de l'hotel
Très bel hotel très bien situé. Les chambres sont grandes avec de hauts plafonds (au moins 3 mêtre), on a une vrai sensation d'espace. On sent que l'hôtel est assez vieux (moquette, papier peint, plancher qui craque,...) mais les sanitaires, lit et services technologique (t.v. connecté, hub wifi dans chaques chambres) sont moderne et efficace. C'est le premier hotel que je fait (et j'en ai fait pas mal autour du monde) qui fait payer un supplément au petit déjeuner pour avoir les oeufs, becon et saucisse.

Lived up to expectations

Posted 15-Apr-2015
Pros: Helpful, friendly staff, cocktails, very comfortable bed. Interesting dinner in Mr Cooper's.
Cons: Two things were a bit small - the bath (but everything else about the bathroom fine) and the breakfast tables were too small for maps and newspapers!
Location: Perfect location: next to a Metro stop, next door to wonderful new Central Library, close to theatres, concert hall, shops, Oxford Rd station.
I've wanted to stay here since I was a child - it was the 'posh' hotel my Mum pointed out on trips to Manchester. I thought I lived too close to have an excuse to stay - but one arose, so I did, and it was as good as expected. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the cocktails were fantastic (never knew black lava salt existed before having a 'South of the Border', explained by an impressively-knowledgeable waiter), and the room was excellent. A most enjoyable stay.

Very nice city centre hotel

Posted 08-Apr-2015
Lovely hotel but Manchester centre is rife with beggars and street crime so keep your wits about you. We had an ipad mini stolen from us while shopping in Trafford Centre and got negligible help from police as these occurences are so frequent apparently. Appreciate this is not city centre but found atmosphere quite intimidating at times with very little police presence on streets.
