Stayed here now a few times and one of the best apartment hotels in Manchester. Great city centre location within walking distance of all attractions and amenities and public transport connections. The higher floor apartments have spectacular views across the city and with the floor to ceiling picture windows add to the experience.
Had a small problem with the wifi access but was quickly and effectively resolved by the reception staff.
The fact that the hotel had its own car park is a bonus. However it is small both in terms of the number of spaces and the actual parking bays themselves. Not recommended if you have a large vehicle and I wouldn't want to try and park an estate car there. Parking isn't cheap either but he really comparable to the cost of the nearby NCP ones.

We stayed in 1 bed self catered apartment here. The location is a bit tricky to find as youre looking for a door on the main street, rather than a complex of apartments. When we arrived no one was on reception for about 5 mins and the door was locked (assume receptionist was helping someone in their room).
Check in was straightforward. The apartment was nicely decorated and generally clean. However, we came across a few maintenance issues, which could be easily corrected but seemed a bit neglected: (1) paint totally chipped off bath skirting board; (2) main living room light not work - assume just needed a new bulb; (3) no hot water in the morning ( we didn't have time to complain and for £45 per night it wasn't worth making a big deal over for one night.
Overall, I'd say it seemed fairly clean, well decorated but needs some simple maintenance to increase the quality of stay. Also very hand location - right next to Arndale and 5 mins from Printworks.
Nice, clean hotel in the Northern QTR, close to the trendy bars and restaurants etc.
Room was clean and tidy, no issues, nice decor etc
Staff could have been a bit more friendly, as it is part of a Pub then there isn't anyone on the front desk all of the time so as a guest you feel a bit of an afterthought - this could be improved on
Didn't eat here so can't comment on the food
I would stay here again, it was far more pleasant than a corporate hotel or a travel inn, particularly if the price is better.
Value for money when share by a large group, nice view with balcony, big house with full equipment, like a home.
just a short walk to the Arndale centre and train station, good service , they give me call when the room are available earlier than the check in time.
