The place to stay in Manchester
We arrived at the hotel to be pleasantly surprised that we had received an upgrade. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Even received a text to check we were happy with our room. The hotel was beautiful and the bedroom spacious and impeccably clean with a very comfortable bed. Lots to chose for breakfast and service excellent. Would definitely stay again without hesitation. Thank you.

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
