Best hotel in Manchester!

Posted 06-Dec-2016
The midland hotel is the grandest most classically beautiful hotel we've ever stayed in. We love it here. The staff the rooms the lobby even breakfast is amazing. Can't recommend enough.

Lots of history but let down by management

Posted 05-Dec-2016
Pros: Room comfort. Location. History.
Cons: Approach to customers.
Location: Lots - it is central Manchester.
Disappointing. Room was fine and well equipped but we didn't feel valued at all and it was very noisy with our room clearly above a function room. Doors slamming in rooms close by in the early hours. No sleep. My wife was so annoyed that we left early the following morning without breakfast which was a plus as we would have had to pay £20 each for this. Up the game QA and match the running of the hotel with its history.

Grand entrance and good restaurant but shabby room

Posted 02-Dec-2016
Stayed for 2 nights at end November 2016. Really love the central location and grand reception area. Coopers restaurant served a very good evening meal. Polite check-in staff. Concierge service OK. The room on the second floor was disappointing; dated, a little shabby and the window frames were rusty and dirty. Poor attention to detail, for example, the wardrobe contained only 6 hangers between 2 people. I had expected more of the room from this famous Manchester landmark.

Great hotel easy walk to shops and Christmas marke

Posted 02-Dec-2016
Easy check in, room ready in early arrival. Spa had phoned pre arrival to advise of special offers. Had facial - perfect relaxed great staff. The only watch out for hotel is bar in the evening little bit chaotic asked for Bill 3 times but it had not been put through on till we explained what we had they then put through on this occasion we did not pay service charge. Other than that great hotel

Excellent location for Bridgewater Hall

Posted 25-Nov-2016
Stayed for one night whilst attending a concert at Bridgewater Hall and it's right on the doorstep. We were extremely happy about that as the weather was terrible, we literally walked out of the back door and straight across the road into the Hall! Lovely Art Deco hotel, our room was small but well decorated with a nice modern bathroom. Breakfast was very good, lots of choice and hot food was cooked to order. Although we didn't use the spa we had walk around and it looked lovely, would like to return for a spa day. Will be back.

as smart as you expect at this price

Posted 24-Nov-2016
Pros: Clean, modern use of an attractive older building
Cons: Nothing in particular, but then again, nothing stood out, which is disappointing at these rates.
Conference, so didn't explore, but it is centrally located. Staff were friendly, but wait staff struggled with virtually no English. Breakfast was splendid, and there's plenty of comfortable space for an informal meeting in the lobby. London prices though, for rooms, and at the bar.

One night stay .

Posted 23-Nov-2016
Book hotel due to location off to a concert in the evening. So glad I did. Beautiful hotel inside. lots off space. Very mu h old style hotel but in a good way. Our room was lovely and big enought for one night. The staff very helpfull. Such a big hotel that you may get a bit lost. BreakfSt was excellent. Best of all ice machines on 2 nd floor which I think should be standard in hotels. loved my stay here. El
