5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hotel has been refurbished to a very high standard and is luxurious. It felt like stepping back into the 1920s as the character of the refuge building has been retained. I loved everything about my stay from the wonderful breakfast, freshly cooked to the very comfortable bed. We ate at the restaurant and sampled some cocktails and I can’t fault any of it. The hotel is in such an excellent location for all Manchester has to offer that I will certainly be staying there again.

Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, great location.

My new fav in Manchester! The staff were so friendly and welcoming. Our room was beautiful, the only think was you could hear a lot noise from the corridors and adjoining rooms. Didn’t ruin our stay though and I’m looking forward to returning soon
