Nothing Poor customer service
Polite staff, room was comfortable and clean. Could do with better quality breakfast items. Hotel needs a refurbish. We wanted cocktails but barmaid we couldn't have any
Room was very nice and spacious. Breakfast also very good
We paid extra to get a hotel with a window, only to turn up and be out in a tiny twin room with no window. The air con in the room had the control panel hanging off the wall and it was unbearably hot. We asked to be moved to a different twin room with a window, which the staff originally told me they wouldn't do. After some complaining at the reception they eventually moved us but the room was now a double instead of a twin which they'd told us it would be at reception. This room had mould on the wall underneath the window and on the ceiling. For the price of the room I expected much better.
The location The dated feel to the hotel, the lack of light in my room (457) The room smelt fusty, the carpets and walls were stained, the breakfast was of very poor quality. The lifts are not very practical.
Worst hotel I've ever stayed at
The staff were good people trying to hold it together It's just old and unkept. The owners need to reinvest in the property.
The hotel is well located and the exterior and central staircase are impressive. Staff were helpful though there was a long queue at check in. Room was functional, but clean and everything worked. Wifi in room is limited to 20 minutes unless you pay for the premium wifi. Furniture and décor is a bit dated.
Excellent location and very originally nice hotel architecture. Gorgeous stairs The hotel overall full scope maintenance is very poor, looking then at Britannia as a big missed opportunity. Ideal target for "Hotel Impossible" next episode
All the staff were friendly and helpful and the room was fantastic with everything we needed
The staff were extremly polite and courteous, not always the case in such hotels, unfortunatly.
Clean, comfortable and convenient
Staff were exceptional,service excellent. Standard of toiletries in a five star hotel was not as good as I expected.Shower was not great.
cleanliness, attentiveness of staff when required, decor, closeness for requirements of city shops and arena for concert pool change area is small, there was a hen party there for the day getting treatments in the spa and there were no lockers available so we had to take everything into the pool area! Lifts were a problem- a number of us (guests) had encoutered room cards that didn't work in lifts- my mother who I was travelling with hates lifts and we got stuck!
Great service, stylish, interesting history
We were made very welcome during our stay and nothing was too much trouble. -
Modern "boutique" feel to decor & rooms. Central location. Decent leisure facilities. Buffet breakfast was a bit old-fashioned and not in keeping with quality of hotel.
The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was first class.
the hotel was lovely and the room very comfortable with lovely facilities we were on room only as that was the special rate we got but we didn't have breakfast as it was far too expensive
Leaving The room.
Great location Our room was quite narrow and had a strange smell, really small faults.
Relaxed atmosphere in a convenient location for shopping, restauarants and bars. Bathroom clean, but looked a bit old & tired.
The room was comfortable, the shower amazing and service / breakfast great. We also really enjoyed the pool / sauna after breakfast and found the check in/ check out times really reasonable so we were not rushing. Also we booked a twin room as a double was not available but then when we came to check in we were given the option of a double which was just what we wanted. The only negative comment I wqould make would be regarding the size of the pool you definitely cant use it for swimming as exercise as it's way too small!!
Central location Vert tatty decor, room very small for the price
the staff were excellent very friendly and informative, nothing was too much trouble bathroom door did not shut to! room 636
That it was close to a place that we wanted to visit
An excellent breakfast with very pleasant staff. We found the bed a bit uncomfortable.
Location, great and efficient staff. A little bit noisy - other guests knocking on the door and generally rowdy.
went to the take that concert
The location can't be beat-. Close to shipping, bars and the Christmas markets. Could not have been happier with my choice. As a major plus, the staff was amazingly helpful.
Very friendly reception staff and the beds were great.
the location was very good and within walking distance to the shops and the tram if you need to travel further, staff were helpful and the bar in the hotel was good and lively i felt our room was quite small
Perfect location to stroll into the city.
Obsidian bar and menu No parking
Reasonably good hotel in a good city centre location A little noisy at night, lacks a nice lounge or somewhere really relaxing for a seat a drink and a chat with friends.
Room v. clean and comfortable, quiet and roomy. Breakfast excellent. Reception was busy and a little slow but staff were friendly.
The modern interior to a old building. The location of the hotel was perfect, next to China Town. When we got to our room, someone else's luggage was there. However, going to reception thinking we had someone else's room, they took the bags away swiftly.
friendly helpful staff,lovely rooms and very comfortable beds! very central for china town nothing
The parking facillities/costs
Friendly Staff, good location generaly a very nice Hotel Eat Out
A nice hotel, very well placed for Manchester Piccadilly train station and thecentre of Manchester. Helpful staff (even booked us taxis to and fro as it was freezing!). Very tasty and fresh breakfast too. Slightly dated interior and quite noisy from outside as in room at front of hotel - no noise reduction/double glazing.
The bed had a great nights sleep and the location was brill The room could have a little bit clean and the staff could have been friendly - not a single smile
We were in a room overlooking the square and although we couldn't turn the radiators off, it was a quiet, very comfortable room. Thank you
close to station wallpaper coming off walls / decor needs changing
Convenience of getting to main attractions and shopping as well as being close to a train station The room did not have the main/big lights, only table lamps. Very squicky floor, I was concerned about making too much noise and disturbing occupants below at night time.
It is well located in city centre and was convenient for the purpose I stayed.I shall again if neeeded None
Its location to city centre Lack of hygiene in bedroom
It was just the perfect location : city centre, trams just at the door step, train station to go the the airport just a few minutes away! The shower was unpractical, getting extremely warm then very cold all the time. The room we were staying in was just next to the boiler room, which made a tremendous noise every 10 min or so, which means we could not open the window at night for some fresh air. But it was ok with the window closed.
Good location for a quick overnight stay Noise from main road at front of building and cold let through by lack of double glazing which meant that on a bitterly cold night, even though sleeping next to a radiator I had to raid another bed for extra blankets to get warm. Room lighting a bit poor and decor generally in room and hotel looking a bit shabby. Shower not very controllable. Spacious room though - intended to sleep 3 and would have done so without feeling cramped.
Hotel is in a central location therefore very handy. Nothing to report on this.
It was an enjoyable weekend. The bar man on Friday/Saturday & Sunday Night was outstanding.
Game Old Trafford No
Everything! The hotel is in a great location, the staff are friendly and helpful and hotel was clean, comfortable and very up-to-date.
Yes I just wish it was cheaper so I could have ate a breakfast and I also wish it could have been kept on longer as drinking the night before and early breakfasts are just not supoosed to fit together. So to sum it up, I think the cost of the brekkie should be included in the main price I payed and it should be untill at least 11:00am finish on a weekday.
excellent service, promt checking in and out and very friendly staff no
comfortable room & really helpfull staff
1 Location, 2 Modern with lift is a must when you carry a baby with pushchair.
The hotel is located in the city centre and has all the modern facilities. I like the fact that there are irons and trouser presses in each room and the breakfast was great. It was a bit hot, But I believe we could change the temperature in the room
This Hotel is very shabby and in need of a complete overhaul.
the location of hotel in th city, near places of interest the decor of the rooms was very outdated
location in the centre of Manchester, close to everything. 3 lifts for 14 floors.
On arrival, the check-in process was very speedy and straightforward. We found the room to be very clean but smaller than we'd expected but this didn't matter as we were only staying for one night. The buffet breakfast was very tasty and had plenty variety. The mattress and pillows were a little hard. The main issue we had though was that people in the next room complained about us being too noisy. We had returned to our room at 11.30 pm and were chatting with the TV on for half an hour - we were definitely NOT making a lot of noise with our voices and the TV volume was quite low. I would therefore suggest the rooms are inadequetely sound proofed
The location of the hotel is ideal for shopping, and is situated right beside the main bus stops and trams. The breakfast was superb every morning with an excellent choice to suit all tastes. The service from bar staff was very poor. We waited 40 minutes for our order to be taken. Most of the waiting staff were incompetent! Reception was poorly staffed also, waited 25 minutes at reception to book a taxi. Room cleaning was also minimal, towels were not replaced and rooms weren't cleaned until after 3pm most days
though i booked double bed they have joined 2 twin beds and the beds were not quite comfortable,more than the bed,the pillows.pl.look into this,I stayed here abt 6m ago,i liked it thats why i booked at the same place,i might choose others for the next time.
the staff wear helpful & courteous it is in a poor state of repair 7 requires major renovation.
breakfast and being so close to town centre was building work so unfair to comment
A superb building. The room had lovely furniture. We really enjoyed our stay.
Central location and beautiful christmas decorations Being unable to open a window for health and safety reasons. Air conditioning is noisy, un green and not as good as fresh air at night.
Friendly professional staff and very comfortable beds.
ther was noise from the next room after midnight and it took two phone calls to reception before the noise was stopped.
Beautiful building, with a very grand reception area, good customer service in the bar and bedrooms very clean and comfortable. In the hallways there are pictures/collages of interesting facts about the hotel history. Not very personal (boutique style) more corporate style of hotel.
I have stayed here several times, excellent location, top class facilities. only minor fault is prices in bar, but I guess this has to be expected given the location / hotel
Clean rooms and courteous staff
the receptionist Kirsty was excellent.
the room was amazing the price of swimming costumes was too expensive
Completely comfoprtable and centrally located. Large room. Prices in Britain are high -- that is a fact of life -- and the Midland is expensive -- but I really am not complaining. It was proably the most comfortable hotel we stayed at in a 3 week visit to the UK.
Great location,beautifully renovated old building great Q hotels standard and very welcoming,highly trained staff that gave you service with a smile nothing was too much trouble we certainly were very well looked after during our stay Thankyou hotel did not accept our booking for dinner at £25 rate as advertised by yourselves but after staying there we realised this was probably due to the hotel being very busy that weekend with private functions other than this we had no complaints at all
I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The Hotel itself is in a wonderful location for shopping.
Rundown, shabby Everything
central location Heating doesn't work dirty bathroom damaged tap on bathtub flush lavatory doesnt't act up
Proximity to city centre Room was described as executive twin - did not match up to this description. State of bathroom very poor.
good location friendly staff
the central location the air conditioning control unit was not working. The room got very hot! (room 207)
The location Staff attitude - damp and dated interior of bedroom - decor/repair of floor finished to very poor standard. Room was not ready at 2.30 although we were told it was (communication problem) then given a smaller room to what was paid for that was ready. Maid very rude at 10.10 in the morning, saying she wanted to clean the room - when i don't have to leave the room until 11am. This was reported to the reception who apologised and said that they would have words with the cleaner.
The hotel had all the facilities that a visitor to Manchester would need and I found the staff helpful and courteous and the central location is a big bonus, breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of food and in the evening I had dinner in the restaurant and the waiter was considerate and polite The hotel could do with some investment in the general decoration nothing was in a bad state of repair, just looking a little dated. In the evening I had dinner in the hotel and was I little disappointed that the one item on the menu that I wanted was not available.
The location. Ideal for Picaddily station and the airport train. Much better than airport hotels as the whole of Manchester centre is yours for the night. My favourite pubs, Marble Arch and Jolly Angler both close by. The room itself. When I entered my first thought was that the curtains were the same design as the wallpaper. Then I realised that it was wallpaper and there was no window. Practical though.
The man on reception who was very polite, very patient and tried his best I did get my supposedly up-graded room changed back to the originall lower graded room which wasn't nearly as bad. The room - bath filthy (I mean it) and broken, room very very smelly and very cold with no functional heating. window overlooked filth and razor wire
The location is excellent for the MEN Arena, Arndale shopping etc.The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Good secure car park. Procedure for collecting car park pass is difficult especially if arriving alone and having to park on double yellow lines. Sleep was disturbed from 4:00 - 5:30 in the morning; initially thought this was guests leaving; however it seemed to be staff talking too loudly with alot of door banging.
Didn't get to stay there as the event we were attending was cancelled very belatedly.
Ideal location for men and a little shopping, double beds were great.
Hotel site convenience. Pleasant staff. Breakfast.
The size of the room was excellent and the quiet bar for a drink late on. The bathrooms could do with modernising
a black tie ball was held which we attended for the price we paid breakfast wes not included
Good room facilities, excellent bathroom,good location for shopping Conference facilities pleasant When checked in I was not told where to park in the car park so I ended up paying ncp parking charges Car park a bit lonely and passages to room very quiet and lonely for lone female
It was clean and comfy ,breakfast was very good plenty of choice ,and very handy being right in the centre of Manchester
Staff friendly. Radio in room was very poor.
comfort of the rooms and been handy for the shops
Good clean room, good room service at reasonable prices. Nice big comfortable bed. Standard room had no bath but was set up for disabled use. Car parking away from the hotel. Long wait at busy times for the lift.
The actual rooms we stayed in were luxurious, as regards decoration comfort and the bathroon was lovely as well. The food (breakfasst) was awful!
the rooms are at a excellent standard and compare favourably with five star n/a
Modern hotel in a brilliant location. Rooms were fantastic and extremely clean.
Clean, efficient,good location Thought breakfast was a little expensive
Clean(always a bonus in my opinion) and modern hotel, would recommend this hotel. Staff friendly and helpful.
We booked the Crowne Plaza on the way down to manchester on the booking.com app, was a great price and everthing was just perfect.
The staff were very helpful, especially the Irish chap (can't recall his name) who assisted us with our bags on arrival. The room was very clean and the presentation was lovely. The side of the wardrobe was broken but other than that everything was perfect.
i really enjoyed the bedroom it was very comfartable and i liked the design of the room. it was a good price for the room. it was a little pricey for a pint 5.30 for a pint of perroni.
Clean, warm and comfortable - a good base for a couple of days visiting Manchester city centre, and the MEN arena. Only concern was that although the water was hot as it came out of the tap, it rapidly cooled in the bath, so a good soak wasn't possible. The shower was excellent. It was very cold whilst we were staying there, but the room was warm enough.
The rooms were spotless and very comfortable , needs a bigger bar and dining area. Drinks were very pricey.
Very central Lovely decor Very clean
Location of the hotel was really good. You were by foot really fast in the center. Hotel was also really quiet, you were not able to hear neighbors or traffic although close to this hotel there were many pubs and restaurants. Breakfast was horrible, absolutely below standard.. There was almost none of healthy food available.. No cheese, ham, vegetables, porridge, berries.. Rooms were ok but there was no minibar, no storage facilities to clothes and bed was really soft which for us was not the preference -> Difficult to sleep long time since lower back was hurting after few hours..
I thought the hotel was an ideal situation for the Arena and for shopping. Good for a one or two night stay. Clean and friendly. The only negative was the size of the food area it was very frustrating because it was terribly congested and too narrow. The food was good for the price but didn't like the experience of getting the food on my plate. Ideal location with helpful friendly staff. I would use the hotel again
I've stayed in budget accommodation before and I must say this is the best I have seen. I paid extra to have my own double en-suite room and I recommend it to anyone, very comfortable and clean. Dragging my suitcase up/down lots of stairs!
Basic budget accommodation, clean and tidy with friendly atmosphere and helpful staff
Facilities were basic but adequate. Friendly and informal. I did not like the fact that the dormitories were mixed. I ended up being the only female in a dormitory of men. I found out next morning that another guy was a lone guy in a dormitory of girls. Surely it would make more sense to allocate all females to one dorm and all males to another.
Pleasant, helpful, knowledgeable, informative staff. Clean and tidy. The bed was big enough for the two of us but was somewhat lacking in comfort. The kitchen was not particularly appealing. Unfortunately the location of the hotel makes it subject to noisey traffic - particularly buses. [Our recommendation would be subject to these comments.]
Really lovely staff who fostered a welcoming atmosphere Could do with larger secured storage
The large room, very big bed and a good shower. The breakfast.
Good position: near the centre and reasonable price
Staff Friendliness and also having a kitchen were you could make yourself a tea or coffee 24 hours a day.
The stuff is very helpfull, the hostel very clean and 5 minutes walk from the canter of Manchester.. Will visit again!
The bed was so comfortable and very friendly atmosphere with staff. Facilites are great and up-to-date. The amount of stairs, but good for fitness levels I suppose!
