We stayed only for one night, specifically to go shopping and have a night in Manchester, so unfortunately we didn't get to use the spa facilities. However, I use my local McDonald hotel for spa and gym purposes, so I know that it would have been good.
The rooms are very comfy & spacious, good environment to relax in and the food served at the restaurant was excellent.
When I got to my room - I went to close the curtains and in doing so had to move one of the sofa chairs, as I moved it the front left hand legal collapsed. The shaving socket was also cracked, these are small points but the hotel looks great in terms of decor,design and I did mention these to point to a staff member.
Location and newness
Everyon was so friendly and helpful. Beautifully clean and decorated thrtoughout. Rooms were first class. We were a bit concerned with, what seemed like, dozens of people milling around everywhere in evening dress, and we thought, if there were party functions going on we'd be disturbed by noise but we needn't have worried at all as everything was fine.
The only negative side, which has nothing to do with the hotel itself, was that, once we had parked the car (behind Picadilly Station), no-one we asked seemed to know where the hotel was / how to get to it!! (Even a couple of policemen didn't know?? So, signage would be useful for future travellers. (One small point - when we rang to say we had would be ariving late & where should we park, the receptionist said the hotel car-park was full so to park behind the station. On arrival we discovered that the Travis Street car park, just behind the hotel, had loads of room so we had to go back and retrieve our car from the station car park. A bit annoying but not the end of the world!
friendly service, clean and comfortable room, fresh cooked food
poor signage to the restaurant
